Auburn rallies past Arkansas 75-62
AUBURN, Ala. (AP)—Tay Waller and Lucas Hargrove scored 14 points apiece and Auburn overcame a 10-point second-half deficit, beating Arkansas 75-62 on Wednesday night.
The Tigers (15-9, 4-5 Southeastern Conference) outscored the Razorbacks 37-15 down the stretch and didn’t allow a field goal over the final 6:33.
Arkansas (13-9, 1-8), which has lost four straight games, has blown two straight double-digit leads in the second half. The Razorbacks had a 15-point halftime lead at Mississippi State before losing.
Arkansas reclaimed a 60-57 lead on Stefan Welsh’s back-to-back 3-pointers, but it was short-lived. The Tigers scored the next eight points, capped by DeWayne Reed’s 3-of-4 performance from the line during one possession after Razorbacks point guard Courtney Fortson fouled out with 4:23 left and was then called for a technical.
