Terrance Davis had a monstrous road game against the Razorbacks with 30 points and five rebounds.

Jaylen Barford, the SEC's third leading scorer, put up 23 points against the Rebs.

Despite Ole Miss making it interesting down the stretch, Arkansas comes away with their 3rd SEC win of the season, 97-93 over the Rebels.

Arkansas hit eight first half 3-pointers and finished the game going 11-of-22 from long distance. Breein Tyree added 16 points in the loss, and Deandre Burnett and Bruce Stevens had 15 each.

Ole Miss got within four points, but Arkansas closed the door on the Rebels by causing turnovers and keeping up a high-octane offensive charge. After trailing by as many as 18 points in the first half, they cut Arkansas' lead to as few as two points with 12 seconds left on a 3-pointer by Davis. The sophomore finally found his stroke against the Rebels, finishing 4 of 7 from the field and scoring in double figures for the first time since a win over Oral Roberts on December 19.

The Razorbacks travel to Georgia on Tuesday.
