  • Text size: + -

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) James Southerland scored a career-high 35 points to lead No. 6 Syracuse to a 91-82 win over Arkansas on Friday night.

Southerland, who was also a career-best 9 for 13 on 3-pointers, helped the Orange (5-0) win in their first visit to Bud Walton Arena. The senior bested his former career mark of 22 points, set against Princeton earlier this season, and five 3s, which he had as a freshman against Robert Morris.

Brandon Triche and Michael Carter-Williams added 17 points each, and C.J. Fair had 12 for Syracuse, which was 11 of 26 from beyond the arc.

BJ Young led the Razorbacks (3-3) with 25 points, 19 in the first half, while Marshawn Powell added 19. The loss was Arkansas' third straight.
