Player of the Week: Tim Quarterman energizes LSU

Bobby Portis steered Arkansas to a 2-0 start in Southeastern Conference play. Trailing Georgia at halftime, Portis opened scoring for the Razorbacks (13-2, 2-0 SEC) in the second period and sparked the 79-75 come-from-behind win. He led the Razorbacks with 21 points and finished 4-of-4 from the free-throw line and made one 3-pointer. Portis dropped 32 points and pulled down 11 rebounds against Vanderbilt as Arkansas moved past the Commodores 82-70 for its seventh consecutive victory. The performance was Portis’ sixth 20-plus-point game this season. Portis and Arkansas play at Tennessee (9-5, 1-1) on Tuesday.
