Razorbacks Pull Away for 89-66 Exhibition Victory

Updated:
 The University of Arkansas men's basketball team eventually used its height and depth to its advantage against Pittsburg State University Thursday (Nov. 13), breaking open a tight game in the second half and taking a 89-66 victory.

 
The Gorillas trailed by just three points, 31-28, with 5:09 to play in the first half before the Razorbacks closed out the first 20 minutes of play on an 18-8 run to take a 46-29 lead to the intermission at Bud Walton Arena.
 
UA stretched its margin to 12 points by scoring the first five points of the second half, but Pitt State eventually trimmed the margin back to eight, at 56-48, with 14:47 to play on Connor Kjer's 3-pointer.
 
From there, the Razorbacks put together a 15-2 run to extend the margin to 21 points, 71-50, with 9:55 to play.
 
Devon Branch led the Gorillas with 20 points and nine rebounds. Branch and Josiah Gustafson scored 12 points apiece in the first half. Jake Bullard and Dakota Jones added nine points apiece.
 
The Gorillas, who were victimized by 25 turnovers in the contest, shot just 38 percent from the floor, but Pitt State converted 24 of 29 free attempts in the game.
 
Bobby Portis led all scorers with 22 points for the Razorbacks. Michael Qualls, Jacorey Williams and Moses Kingsley each chipped in with 13 points for UA.
 
The Gorillas will travel to Sioux Falls, S.D., to open up the regular season Saturday and Sunday (Nov. 15-16) by competing in the Sanford Pentagon Basketball Showcase.
