FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Au'Diese Toney scored 18 points and JD Notae had 15 to lift No. 10 Arkansas past Little Rock 93-78.

All but two of Toney's points came in the first half, when Arkansas (8-0) built its lead to 15 points at the break. Notae took over for the Razorbacks in the second half, scoring all but two of his points to stave off an attempted rally by Little Rock (4-5), which went on an 18-8 run to start the second half.

Notae, the SEC's leading scorer this season averaging 18.1 points per game, shot an efficient 5 of 9 in the second half and his 3-pointer with 3:47 left put Arkansas back ahead by double digits for good.

Arkansas had three other players score in double figures: Devo Davis with 16, Chris Lykes with 14 and Stanley Umude added 12.

Marko Lukic led all scorers with 23 points for Little Rock, while Isaiah Palermo added 17 points and a game-high 10 rebounds.

The Razorbacks shot 57% from the field and outscored Little Rock 48-26 in the paint.
