FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) Ricky Council scored a season-high 27 points and No. 11 Arkansas used a 17-0 run late in the second half to hold off Troy 74-61 on Monday night.
Council scored 13 of Arkansas' final 19 points as the Razorbacks outscored Troy 19-3 in the final 6:25. The Trojans missed seven of eight during the stretch while Arkansas (6-1) made seven straight field goals.
"Ricky in Maui (Invitational) became our go-to guy," Arkansas coach Eric Musselman said. "He's really tough to stop going to the basket. He draws free throws attempted. His mid-range pull-up game, he rises over people. He's playing with a lot of confidence."
