Alabama Fends off Arkansas at home

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - JaMychal Green and Anthony Brock both
hit a pair of free throws in the final 14 seconds to help Alabama
cap a 73-68 comeback victory over Arkansas on Saturday.

The Crimson Tide (14-11, 4-7 Southeastern Conference) rallied
from a 13-point deficit early in the second half to snap a
four-game losing streak.

The Razorbacks (13-12, 6-4) had won five straight games to take
the SEC West lead but couldn't finish this one out. Courtney
Fortson made 1 of 2 free throws with 36 seconds left to cut
Alabama's lead to 67-66.

Arkansas quickly fouled Mikhail Torrance who, like Green and
Brock, made both shots from the line.

The Razorbacks' only basket in the final 2 minutes came on
Fortson's drive with 8 seconds left. Brock then secured the victory
from the line.
Green had 22 points and nine rebounds and made all but one of
his 13 free throw attempts.
