A quick summary of Arkansas' 73-60 victory over Kentucky on Saturday in Fayetteville, Ark.:
Sharp early offensively, UK rushed out to an 11-4 lead. The Arkansas defense began to turn the Cats over and the Razorbacks went on a 14-3 run. UK was having trouble starting its offense while Arkansas was having trouble making shots. The Arkansas lead reached 25-20 but Archie Goodwin kept the Cats close, and they trailed 32-29 at the half. UK seemed even more rattled in the second half. Arkansas had early runs of 11-0 and 7-0. Kentucky was making more turnovers than baskets, and never made a serious run in the second half.
