The Associated Press

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Marshawn Powell is looking as healthy as ever.

Powell had season highs of 21 points and 10 rebounds as Arkansas rolled to a 89-60 win over Florida A&M on Tuesday night.

The junior, who missed all but two games last season with a torn ACL in his right knee, was 8 of 14 shooting in 22 minutes of action. He had four dunks and a pair of blocks to help the Razorbacks (3-0) remain undefeated.

Rickey Scott added 13 points as five players finished in double figures for Arkansas, which held the Rattlers (0-4) scoreless for nearly seven minutes in the second half to put the game out of reach. The Razorbacks scored 32 points off 22 Florida A&M turnovers.

Reggie Lewis led the Rattlers with 15 points, while Muhammed Abdul-Aleem had 14 and Jamari Bradshaw 13. Florida A&M is now 0-34 against the Southeastern Conference.

Arkansas led by as many as 21 points in the first half before Florida A&M closed the lead to 11 early in the second half.

The Razorbacks return to action Friday in Las Vegas.
