Forrest City alum Marcus Britt's layup helps Hogs upset #22 Kentucky 77-76

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.
