FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- 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.
Anthlon Bell led Arkansas with 17 points, while Marshawn Powell added 11.
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.
