FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.  - Bobby Portis scored 16 points and added nine rebounds as Arkansas beat High Point 89-48 Saturday night.

 

The Razorbacks (10-2) opened the game on a 13-2 run and never trailed. Arkansas extended the nation's fourth-longest home win streak to 22 games at Bud Walton Arena.

 

High Point (3-8) couldn't handle the Razorbacks' pressure defense throughout the game. Arkansas forced 25 turnovers, converting them into 36 points.

 

The Razorbacks took a 42-23 lead at halftime on an Alandise Harris jumper as time expired. Arkansas hit 19 of 36 shots in the second half to pull away.

 

Moses Kingsley scored 12 points and had nine rebounds, and Michael Qualls scored 12 points for the Razorbacks, while Coty Clark and Anthlon Bell added 11 apiece. Devante Wallace led High Point with 13 points.

 

Arkansas has won six straight games since a loss to Gonzaga at the Maui Invitational last month.
