Florida completes OT comeback, snaps Arkansas streak

FAYETTEVILLE, AR (RNN) - Florida was just a few points better than Arkansas in overtime, but that was all they needed to take an 84-82 win on the road Saturday.

The No. 10 Gators (13-2) outscored the Razorbacks (11-4) 18-16 in overtime, led by Scottie Wilbekin's nine in the extra period. He had 18 points in the game and secured the win with a pair of free throws with about five seconds left.

Dorian Finney-Smith led the Gators with a career-high 22 points, and Michael Frazier added 15. Patric Young also came off the bench to score 10.

Four starters reached double digits for the Razorbacks - Rashad Madden (23), Coty Clarke (16), Bobby Portis (14) and Michael Qualls (10). Alandise Harris gave the Razorbacks 11 off the bench.

The loss snapped a 23-game home winning streak for Arkansas.
