The Big East has been flexing its muscles in the early part of the 2010-2011 college basketball season as the dominant conference thus far. Last night the SEC took a small bit of wind out of the sails of the conference by sweeping both contests in the DirecTV SEC/Big East Invitational played at Freedom Hall in Louisville (KY). In the opening contest, Arkansas got past Seton Hall by the score of 71-62 and the evening was closed out with No. 17 Kentucky using a strong second half to put an end to the undefeated start of No. 23 Notre Dame, 72-58.

In the evening's earlier contest, Arkansas used an 11-0 second half run to regain control of the game after watching Seton Hall erase a 17-point 1st half deficit to take a 51-50 lead with 7:05 left on a pair of Jordan Theodore free throws.

Theodore led the Pirates with a career-high 24 points and the junior point guard also added five assists and four steals in the contest.

After starting the game on a 7-2 run, the Pirates fell apart and the Razorbacks took advantage with a 29-7 run to take a 31-14 lead with 5:39 left in the half. During the 10:18 stretch, Seton Hall was just three of 14 from the field and committed four costly turnovers.

Already playing without leading scorer Jeremy Hazell, who had surgery to repair a broken bone in his non-shooting wrist, coach Kevin Willard sat starting power forward Herb Pope for the first half due to a violation of team rules. Pope finished the game with 8 points and 9 rebounds in just 17 second-half minutes and, along with Theodore, sparked the SHU second-half comeback.

A Pope dunk sparked the 15-5 run that helped put SHU back in the lead, but Arkansas made key plays down the stretch while Seton Hall failed to execute and finish off their comeback. The Pirates are now just 1-3 without Hazell.

Arkansas outrebounded Seton Hall 45-38 and had 42 points off the bench, led by Julysses Nobles scoring a career-high 19 points and Marshawn Powell adding 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Seton Hall will continue to play away from home on Saturday night when they take on UMass in a non-conference road contest.
