Arkansas looks to avenge earlier loss against Tennessee

 FAYETTEVILLE, AR (AP) - Arkansas will try to win its third straight game on Tuesday night when it hosts Tennessee, a team the Razorbacks lost to two weeks ago.

Led by Alandise Harris' 14 points, Arkansas (15-4, 4-2 Southeastern Conference) held on for a 61-60 win at Missouri on Saturday - its second straight win following a two-game losing streak.

The Razorbacks lost 74-69 at Tennessee (12-6, 4-2) on Jan. 13, a game in which they committed a season-high 18 turnovers. Arkansas had only three turnovers against the Tigers, and coach Mike Anderson expects the team to play with more energy when it faces the Volunteers for the second time.

Tennessee is 3-0 on the road in the SEC this season, and a win Tuesday would give the Volunteers four straight conference road wins for the first time since 2008.
