FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Marcus Britt's layup in the final
minute of overtime lifted Arkansas to a 77-76 win over No. 22
Kentucky on Wednesday night.

The Razorbacks trailed 76-75 in the extra period, and the
Wildcats had possession. However, Jeff Peterson stole an errant
Kentucky pass and found Britt at the other end of the court for the
game-winning layup.

Arkansas (17-9, 6-6 Southeastern Conference) improved to 1-3 in
overtime this season and gave coach John Pelphrey his first win in
four chances against his alma mater.

Rotnei Clarke led Arkansas with 26 points, and Marshawn Powell
added 22.

Kentucky (19-8, 7-6) had three shots in the final seconds of
overtime. The last was a desperation 3-point attempt by freshman
Brandon Knight after an inbound play with 1.8 seconds remaining.

Knight scored 26 points for the Wildcats, who fell to 1-6 on the
road in SEC play.
