Arkansas defeats Alabama 65-58

[quote]FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Bobby Portis scored a career-high 35 points in lifting Arkansas to a 65-58 win over Alabama on Wednesday night.

The 6-foot-10 forward also set the school record for most points in a game by a freshman, passing Scotty Thurman’s mark of 34 points — which was set during the 1992-93 season.
Portis, a McDonald’s All-American, scored 29 of the first 35 points for the Razorbacks (14-8, 3-6 Southeastern Conference), who narrowly avoided their third home loss in four games. He added nine rebounds and six blocks and finished 14 of 17 from the field.
