FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) Trevon Brazile had 19 points and 11 rebounds, Khalif Battle scored 21 off the bench and Arkansas held on to beat No. 7 Duke 80-75 on Wednesday night.

Playing without leading scorer Tramon Mark, the Razorbacks (5-3) snapped a two-game skid before a capacity crowd of 20,344 - a record at Bud Walton Arena. When the final horn sounded, fans rushed the floor to celebrate.

“It was awesome. Words can’t describe the feeling right now. It’s a great win," coach Eric Musselman said after his 100th victory at Arkansas.
