Stefan Welsh led Arkansas (12-5, 0-4) with 14 points.

Welsh made a 3-pointer on Arkansas’ first trip down court, a good omen for a team that had been struggling from the outside. However, it was Auburn that put on a first-half shooting clinic, starting 7-of-8 from 3-point range and entering the intermission up 38-31.
