FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., Nov. 30 (UPI) -- James Southerland hit a stunning 9-of-13 from 3-point range Friday and helped keep No. 5 Syracuse unbeaten with a 91-82 victory over Arkansas.

Southerland wound up with 35 points and six rebounds while Brandon Triche and Michael Carter-Williams had 17 each for the Orange.
