Notae scored 17 of his game-high 30 in the final 20 minutes. Miami transfer Chris Lykes joined Notae and Toney (18 points, 11 rebounds) in double figures for the Razorbacks with 16.
“(Toney) was, not even close, player of the game. We did not run one play for him. He was phenomenal,” Musselman said. “I thought he really saved us by the way that he played unselfishly, throughout the course of the game.”
Mercer had four players in double figures, including 12 each for Kamar Robertson and James Glisson III.
