DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Junior center Sarah Watkins hit a 3-pointer with 16 seconds left to give Arkansas a 55-52 win over No. 14 Florida State in the Women's Basketball Invitational Tipoff on Sunday.

Watkins led the Razorbacks (2-1) with 15 points and nine rebounds. C'eira Ricketts had 13 points and Lindsay Harris added 10.

Chasity Clayton scored 15 points for FSU (2-1) and Cierra Bravard added 12 points on 6 of 7 shooting from the floor. But the Seminoles lost the battle of the boards, getting outrebounded 44-26 by the Razorbacks.

There were six lead changes and three times when the score was tied in the second half.

Bravard made a layup with 43 seconds left to tie the game at 52.

The Seminoles had a possession after Watkins' 3-pointer. Tay'ler Mingo had a shot knocked away. FSU retained possession, but Mingo's inbound pass was picked off by Arkansas' Calli Berna as time expired.
