FAYETTEVILLE, Arkansas (AP) - No. 18 Arkansas beat Missouri 84-69 on Wednesday night for its fifth straight victory and eighth in nine games. Missouri (7-19, 1-12) has lost 12 straight games for the first time since the 1966-67 season.

The Tigers nearly defeated Arkansas in their first meeting on Jan. 24, missing a pair of free throws in the closing seconds of a 61-60 loss. On Wednesday night, they fell behind during a first half in which they committed 14 of 20 turnovers overall.

Jonathan Williams and Tramaine Isabell had 13 points each to lead Missouri, which hasn't won since opening SEC play with a win over LSU on Jan. 8.

"We did a much better job in Columbia of handling their pressure," Missouri coach Kim Anderson said. "When they get their press going and the crowd going, certainly they're a good team, but they're even better. Tonight, they rattled us."

Michael Qualls lead the Razorbacks with 21 points. Bobby Portis added 16 points on 8-of-12 shooting to help the Razorbacks (21-5, 10-3 Southeastern Conference) continue their best start in conference play since the 1997-98 season. Arkansas' only loss since Jan. 17 is a 57-56 setback at Florida.

Qualls scored in double figures for the third straight game. The junior is 17 of 34 from the field in his last three games after going 14 of 59 in his previous five.

Missouri finished 26 of 62 (50 percent) from the field, with Montaque Gill-Caesar and Jakeenan Gant also scoring in double figures with 11 points each.

Arkansas, however, also had 13 points from freshman point guard Anton Beard - helping to keep the Razorbacks in second place in the SEC as they try to reach the NCAA tournament in Mike Anderson's fourth season as coach.
