FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- BJ Young hit a spinning layup in the lane with 6 seconds remaining to give Arkansas a 62-60 win over Georgia on Thursday night.
The win is the third straight for the Razorbacks, their longest winning streak in Southeastern Conference play in three seasons.
Arkansas (17-9, 8-5) led by as many as 11 points in the second half before the Bulldogs (12-14, 6-7) rallied to take a 56-53 lead with 2:33 remaining. Young, however, hit his second game-winning shot in as many games to improve the Razorbacks to 16-1 at home.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored all 15 of his points in the second half to lead Georgia, which has now lost three straight after a five-game winning streak.
The guard prospect was one of the top players at the annual Spiece Run N Slam event.
SMU has signed a second player from Australia, 6-foot-11 forward Harry Froling, to a national letter of intent. The Mustangs previously signed guard Tom Wilson from Australia.
There's nothing to suggest the Jayhawks won't end up atop the Big 12 for a 13th season in a row. But what about a return to the Final Four?
