BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Tasmin Mitchell scored 16 points and LSU
avoided going winless in the Southeastern Conference for the first
time since the second World War with a 65-54 victory over Arkansas
on Wednesday night.

LSU (10-17, 1-12 SEC) raced to an early double-digit lead and
went up by as much as 22 when Zach Kinsley's fast-break dunk made
it 50-28 with 9:06 to go.

Courtney Fortson scored 18 points for Arkansas (14-14, 7-6),
which played without 6-foot-9 senior forward Mike Washington.
Washington did not make the trip because of an apparent ankle

Without him, Arkansas settled for outside shots and made only 34
percent from the field (18 of 53), including 9 of 28 from 3-point
range (32 percent).
