FAYETTEVILLE, AR (RNN) – In a back-and-forth game punctuated with "woo pig, sooie," the Arkansas Razorbacks defeated the No. 13-ranked Kentucky Wildcats 87-85 in overtime Tuesday night.

The win ended a two-game losing streak for the Razorbacks (12-4, 1-2 SEC), who were not getting off to a good start beginning SEC conference play. It also marked the third straight home win for Arkansas over Kentucky.

Kentucky (12-4, 2-1 SEC) could never pull away from the tough Arkansas team, and spent most of the game trailing. The Wildcats left halftime down by two points, followed by playing more catch-up with Arkansas in the second half.

Andrew Harrison's 3-point shot sent the contest into overtime. Andrew Harrison, with his twin brother Aaron Harrison, kept Kentucky competitive before Arkansas took over - again - sealing it with a Michael Qualls dunk with two seconds remaining in overtime.

The Wildcats had four players score in double digits, with freshman guard James Young making 23 points and freshman forward Julius Randle scoring 20 points and gathering 14 rebounds. Kentucky shot 65 percent from the free throw line while only making 48 percent of their field goals and 45.5 percent of their 3-pointers.

Arkansas also had four players score in double digits, with Qualls and Madden both making 18 points. The Razorbacks shot 70.7 percent from the free throw line but only shot 28.6 percent from downtown and 37.7 percent in the paint.

Kentucky will host the Tennessee Volunteers at noon ET on Saturday. Arkansas will travel to Athens to face the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. ET.
