Another revenge game, another emphatic statement made by 20th-ranked Arkansas as the Razorbacks put the clamps down on the high-octane LSU Tigers, 83-75, on Saturday at Bud Walton Arena in Fayetteville to cling to a sliver of hope for an SEC regular-season title in 2020-21 while extending the program's best league winning streak since the national championship Hoop Hogs' historic run through the SEC 27 years ago.

Once again, it was Arkansas' trio of talented and battle-tested freshmen combined with veteran influence and impact coming up big in a matchup the Hogs dominated in the second half while overcoming a 7-point deficit for a 21-point lead at the 6-minute mark to effectively seal the win. Senior combo forward Justin Smith notched his second-consecutive double-double with 19 points (8-of-12 field goals, including 1-of-2 from 3, and 2-of-2 free throws), 10 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, and 1 block; freshman shooting guard Moses Moody had 18 points (including 11-of-14 from the free throw line) to go with 8 rebounds and 5 assists; junior guard JD Notae came off the bench to finish with 18 points, 6 rebounds, 2 steals, and 1 assist; freshman combo guard Davonte "Devo" Davis finished with 15 points (7-of-12 field goals and 1-of-2 free throws), a game-high 6 assists, 5 rebounds, and 1 steal; freshman big man Jaylin Williams had 8 points, 6 rebounds, 4 blocks, 2 assists, and 2 steals; and senior combo guard Jalen Tate had 2 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists despite playing only 12 minutes due to foul trouble.
