    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Marshawn Powell scored 19 points as Arkansas won Mike Anderson's first game as coach 83-63 over South Carolina-Upstate on Friday night.

    Rickey Scott added 11 points for the Razorbacks (1-0), who opened the game 10 of 11 shooting and pulled away late for the season-opening win over the Spartans (0-1).

    It was Anderson's first regular-season contest at Arkansas since serving as the school's interim coach for two games following former coach Nolan Richardson's firing in 2002.

    Richardson was in attendance to watch his former longtime assistant, who left Missouri in March to return to the school where he was an assistant for 17 seasons.

    The Razorbacks led by as many as 19 points in the first half and never led by less than double figures in the second half. Arkansas shot 52 percent, holding SC-Upstate to 37 percent and forcing 19 turnovers.

    Fred Miller led the Spartans with 10 points.
