James Southerland's career day helps SU down a feisty Arkansas squad in first true road game of season.

The No. 6 Syracuse University men’s basketball team (5-0, 0-0 Big East) defeated the University of Arkansas Razorbacks 91-82 Friday at the Bud Watson Arena.   

The Syracuse victory marked the Big East’s fifth win in this year’s Big East-SEC Challenge.

Senior forward James Southerland led the Orange with a career-high 35 points. Southerland also tied the SU record for most three-pointers made in a game with nine. Sophomore guard Michael Carter-Williams chimed in with 17 points, 10 boards and nine assists.
