OXFORD, Miss. -- After winning two games in the Southeastern Conference last season, Arkansas is suddenly 3-3 and has notched back-to-back wins over Western Division-leading teams.All is right in the Razorbacks world? Not so fast, coach John Pelphrey said, after his team muscled past Mississippi (No. 20 ESPN/USA Today, No. 18 AP) 80-73 on Sunday."This is six games, not 16," Pelphrey said as he stepped in front of a feel-good question aimed at one of his players. "We've got a lot of work to do."
• The Razorbacks snapped a 15-game conference road losing streak, beating the Rebels a day after the game was originally scheduled. Icy roads forced the postponement from Saturday.
• Michael Washington led Arkansas with 22 points and 11 rebounds for his fourth double-double of the season.
• Ole Miss has now lost four of its last five conference home games despite having won its previous three games vs. Arkansas.
• Murphy Holloway led Ole Miss with 19 points and a career-high 17 rebounds off the bench.
