BATON ROUGE, La. -- Tasmin Mitchell scored 16 points and LSU avoided going winless in the Southeastern Conference for the first time since the second World War with a 65-54 victory over Arkansas on Wednesday night.

LSU (10-17, 1-12 SEC) raced to an early double-digit lead and went up by as much as 22 when Zach Kinsley's fast-break dunk made it 50-28 with 9:06 to go.

Courtney Fortson scored 18 points for Arkansas (14-14, 7-6), which played without 6-foot-9 senior forward Mike Washington. Washington did not make the trip because of an apparent ankle injury.

Without him, Arkansas settled for outside shots and made only 34 percent from the field (18 of 53), including 9 of 28 from 3-point range (32 percent).
