Mickey registers double-double in LSU win over Arkansas, 88-74
BATON ROUGE - Jordan Mickey had 22 points, 11 rebounds and six blocks, and LSU led throughout in an 88-74 victory over Arkansas on Saturday night.
Johnny O'Bryant III had 23 points and nine rebounds for the Tigers (14-6, 5-3 Southeastern Conference), who've now led wire-to-wire in two straight games, starting with their upset of No. 11 Kentucky on Tuesday.
Jarell Martin added 15 points, including a clutch 3 that seemed to deflate Arkansas after the Hogs had used a last-gasp 18-4 run to trim a 20-point deficit down to six with a little less than five minutes to go. That ensured LSU's fourth win in five games.
Rashad Madden scored 17 points for Arkansas (13-8, 2-6), which has lost four of its last five games. Bobby Portis and Kikko Haydar each added 15 points.
