Arkansas nips Kentucky in another OT thriller
Lexington, KY (SportsNetwork.com) - The resurgent Arkansas Razorbacks posted a signature road win, topping 17th-ranked Kentucky in overtime for the second time this season, 71-67.
The victory ended a nine-game losing skid at Rupp Arena for the Razorbacks (19-9, 8-7 SEC), who topped the Wildcats last month on Michael Qualls' put- back dunk with 0.2 seconds remaining in the extra session.
Qualls paced the Razorbacks with 14 points on Thursday. Rashad Madden netted 12, Coty Clarke had 11 and Anthlon Bell added 10 to round out Arkansas' double-digit scorers.
The Razorbacks have won four straight and six of their last seven games.
Willie Cauley-Stein totaled 16 points and tied a career high with 13 rebounds for the Wildcats (21-7, 11-4), who played in their second consecutive overtime game after edging LSU last Saturday.
Julius Randle and Andrew Harrison both finished with 14 points for a Kentucky team that struggled shooting. They were just 26-of-76 (34.2 percent) from the floor and made only 12-of-22 free throws.
