      Hogs Shock Cats In Overtime...Again

      For the first time, Arkansas has swept No. 17/15 Kentucky and has won three in a row over the Wildcats with another crazy finish and overtime win, 71-67.

      The Razorbacks were cool from the free throw line, with seniorCoty Clarke{}hitting 2-2 to send the game into overtime. Clarke then hit a deep trey for the first points in overtime.

      With 36.7 seconds to go in overtime, Clarke headed back to the line and again 2-2 to give the Razorbacks a 69-64 lead. Kentucky quickly brought the ball down the court and Kentucky's James Young hit a smooth three to bring the game within two.

      Head coach{}Mike Anderson{}subbed in senior captain{}Kikko Haydar{}who held on and took teh foul. Haydar headed to the line having not shot a free throw since Feb. 1 at LSU hoping to extend the lead with 17 seconds left on the game clock. Haydar hit both in a tense arena, extending Arkansas to 16-16 from the charity stripe and setting a new team record.

      Arkansas' four overtime games are the most for the Razorbacks in SEC play since since 2011.

      Sophomore{}Michael Qualls{}and junior{}Rashad Madden{}led the Razorbacks with 14 and 12 points, respectively. Qualls added three steals, which was a team-high and tied his previous career high from Dec. 21.

      Clarke and sophomore{}Anthlon Bell{}combined for 21 points and 10 rebounds, each playing a large portion of the second half with four fouls.

      A 25-17 edge in bench points played right into the Razorbacks' hands, who also held a four point edge in points off turnovers.
