FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Mardracus Wade scored 14 points as Arkansas secured its first unbeaten run through the Southeastern Conference at home since the 1997-98 season with a 73-62 win over Texas A&M on Saturday.
The Razorbacks (19-12, 10-8) also secured their first overall winning mark in the SEC in five years, the last time the school reached the NCAA tournament. Arkansas closed out the regular season 18-1 at home, with its only loss coming to then-No. 6 Syracuse on Nov. 30.
Wade was one of five players in double figures for the Razorbacks.
The loss was the fourth in five games for Texas A&M (17-14, 7-11), which played without leading scorer Elston Turner because of a hand injury.
Fabyon Harris led the Aggies with 16 points.
