FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Courtney Fortson scored 24 points -
including nine in a row late in overtime - to lead Arkansas over
Auburn 82-79 on Saturday.
Fortson's 3-pointer broke a 71-71 tie, and he later hit from the
perimeter and made two free throws with 40.6 seconds left to make
it 78-73. After an Auburn miss, Fortson made a layup for a
Auburn (11-12, 2-6 Southeastern Conference) had forced overtime
with Andre Malone's layup on wild play in the final seconds of
regulation. The Tigers nearly tied it again on the final play of
overtime, but Frankie Sullivan's midcourt shot hit the back of the
Arkansas (12-11, 5-3) has won four straight.
