FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- — Moses Moody had career highs of 24 points and nine rebounds as Arkansas beat UT Arlington 72-60 on Wednesday night.
Moody, a 6-foot-6 freshman from Little Rock, Arkansas, was 7-of-12 shooting and made two of the Razorbacks' seven 3-pointers.
Connor Vanover and Jalen Tate added 12 points apiece for Arkansas (3-0), which has won all three games by double digits but shot just 39% (24 of 61) from the floor against the Mavericks. Justin Smith had 11 points and nine rebounds.
Smith scored on a dunk and Moody followed with five straight points and the Razorbacks built a 20-point lead midway through the second half.
Tate made 3-pointer to stretch the Arkansas lead 69-51 with about seven minutes left, but the Razorbacks didn't make another field goal until Tate's jumper with 39 seconds to play.
