FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. —
Bell's third 3-pointer of the half came with 11:43 remaining and gave the Razorbacks an 18-6 lead — their largest lead of the game. The freshman's previous career high was a 16-point effort in the second game of the season over Longwood on Nov. 18.
"I know I've done it in the past, and I know I'm capable," Bell said. "... When I hit the first one, I knew I felt pretty confident and just let it come to me."
The early hot shooting by Bell was much more the exception than the rule, however.
The two teams combined to shoot 13 of 50 (26 percent) from the field in the first half. Georgia finished 4 of 22 (18.2 percent), while Arkansas wasn't much better in a 9-for-28 (32.1 percent) effort.
Arkansas is now one win away from clinching at least a .500 record in SEC play. The Razorbacks haven't done that since a 9-7 mark during the 2007-08 season.
"A win is a win," Young said. "I felt like we could have played a lot better, but we won still. So, that's what matters."
