Hornsby's 3 gives LSU win over No. 18 Arkansas

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Keith Hornsby hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give LSU an 81-78 victory over No. 18 Arkansas on Saturday.

The Tigers (22-9, 11-7 Southeastern Conference) hit 3-pointers on their final two possessions to erase a 3-point deficit. Jalyn Patterson's 3-pointer with 57.8 seconds remaining tied the game 78-78.

Alandise Harris made six free throws and Anthlon Bell added a 3-pointer in the closing minutes to give Arkansas the lead. The Razorbacks (24-7, 13-5) trailed by as many as 12 points in the first half.

Jarell Martin blocked a shot by Harris to give the Tigers their final possession with 22.9 seconds remaining. Josh Gray penetrated and kicked the ball to Hornsby, who made the game-winner from the corner.

Martin scored 27 points and Patterson had 20 for the Tigers, who were playing without second-leading scorer and leading rebounder Jordan Mickey.

Bobby Portis had 21 points and a career-high 15 rebounds for the Razorbacks.
