FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Bobby Portis had 18 points and 13 rebounds as Arkansas won for the fourth time in five games with a 75-55 win over South Carolina on Tuesday night.

It's the 17th straight game in double digits in points for Portis, the preseason first-team All-Southeastern Conference selection who has also finished with double digit rebounds in seven of his last eight games.

Michael Qualls added 11 points for the Razorbacks (17-5, 6-3 SEC), who held the Gamecocks to 27.9 percent (17 of 61) shooting and scored 21 points off 20 turnovers. Portis' rebound total matched his career best.

Sindarius Thornwell led South Carolina (11-10, 2-7) with 16 points, while Marcus Stroman added 10. The Gamecocks have lost five of their last six games and seven of nine.
