FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) BJ Young and Rickey Scott scored 17 points apiece as Arkansas held on for an 83-66 win over Savannah State on Tuesday night.

The win is the sixth straight for the Razorbacks (11-3), who open Southeastern Conference play at home on Saturday against Mississippi State. Arkansas is 11-0 in Bud Walton Arena this season.

Scott finished in double figures for the fourth straight game, leading the Razorbacks in scoring for the third time during that stretch. Young, Arkansas' leading scorer for the season, made his second career start - faring much better than a six-point effort in his only other start on Dec. 17.

Arnold Louis led the Tigers (5-9), who shot just 38.5 percent, with 13 points.
