NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Rotnei Clarke scored a season-high 36 points and Michael Sanchez had a career-high 20 points off the bench as the Arkansas Razorbacks upset No. 19 Vanderbilt 89-78 Saturday night in handing the Commodores' their first home loss this season.
Vanderbilt (15-5, 3-3 Southeastern Conference) had won its first 11 at Memorial Gym, and the Commodores had a sold out crowd cheering them on.
Arkansas (14-6, 4-3) hadn't had much success here either, winning only three of previous 10 trips. The Razorbacks also had lost to the first two ranked teams they played this season. That didn't matter as the Razorbacks shot a season-high 57.4 percent from the floor.
John Jenkins led Vanderbilt with 24 points. Festus Ezeli had 18 points, Jeff Taylor 13 and freshman Rod Odum had a season's high 12.
