The Hogs' European tour moved across the Mediterranean from Spain to Italy, but the Razorbacks continued their winning ways.

Arkansas picked up the third win of its tour Saturday when it defeated Orange1 Basket Bassano 75-54 in Lake Como.

Nick Smith Jr. led all scorers with 20 points on 8-for-14 shooting from the field. 

Although Smith Jr. was the only Razorback to score in double figures, three other Hogs finished with nine points, including Anthony Black, Ricky Council IV and Trevon Brazile.

Black in particular stood out with a pair of high flying dunks in the first half, showing off the athleticism that makes him an exciting pairing along with Smith in the Arkansas backcourt this upcoming season.

Arkansas did well in transition, outscoring Orange Bassano 27-0 on fast break points and 29-16 on points off turnovers.

The Razorbacks will remain in Lake Como for the final game of their European tour, which will take place on Monday against the Bakken Bears.
