FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -Starting guards Courtney Fortson and Rotnei Clarke combined for 33 points Wednesday night as Arkansas defeated LSU, 87-52.
The Razorbacks posted the largest margin of victory over the Tigers in the 49-game history of their series. The 35-point win also represented the school's third-largest conference victory since entering the Southeastern Conference.
Fortson led the way with 17 points and Clarke added 16.
Arkansas (13-11, 6-3) tallied the first 10 points of the contest and led 43-21 at halftime.
Tasmin Mitchell scored 15 points to lead LSU (9-15, 0-10), which has lost 10 straight games. That's the longest losing streak for the Tigers since a 12-game slide to end the 1997-98 season.
Arkansas has now won five-consecutive SEC games for the first time since 2006.
Arkansas took a one-game lead over Ole Miss in the SEC Western Division with the victory.
