FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) Jaylen Barford was still learning what major college basketball was all about a year ago as a first-year junior college transfer when Arkansas went to Minnesota and lost by 14 points.
This time around, the Razorbacks senior had a clear idea of how to attack the 14th-ranked Golden Gophers - and he had plenty of help along the way.
Led by Barford's 22 points, Arkansas (7-2) returned the favor from last year's loss with a 95-79 victory over Minnesota on Saturday night. It did so while continuing what's been nothing short of an offensive onslaught in Bud Walton Arena to open the season, raising its home scoring average to 93.2 points per game with the win.
