FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Rotnei Clarke scored 19 points to lead Arkansas in a 89-67 rout over Georgia on Sunday.

Clarke was 6-of-15 and 4-of-11 from 3-point range to lead the Razorbacks (14-13, 2-12 Southeastern Conference) to their first win since late January. Freshman forward Trey Thompkins had 20 points to lead the Bulldogs (11-18, 2-12).

Sunday's game was a rematch of the 2008 SEC tournament championship game. The win was Arkansas' first since a Jan. 29 win over Alabama. The Razorbacks lost eight straight in February. Georgia came into Fayetteville after beating Vanderbilt on Wednesday.

With members of the Arkansas' 1994 national championship team in attendance, Arkansas took the lead with 11:21 left in the first half and never lost it.
