LEXINGTON, Ky. MLB Jerseys 2020 . -- Arkansas didnt need a spectacular dunk to beat No. 17 Kentucky in overtime this time around. Perfect free throw shooting worked just fine for the Razorbacks, a fundamental they executed much better than the Wildcats, with Coty Clarke and Kikko Hayder providing the final touches in the extra session. Clarke scored four of his seven points in OT from the foul line and Arkansas upset the Wildcats 71-67 on Thursday night to complete a season sweep. Six weeks after Michael Qualls beat the Wildcats with a last-second dunk in OT, Clarke lifted the Razorbacks this time with a 3-pointer and foul shooting, making two free throws with 36.7 seconds left for a 69-64 lead. Foul shots were the difference in the game, with Arkansas making all six attempts in overtime and going 16 for 16 overall. Kentucky was 12 of 22 from the line and just 6 of 14 in the second half. "They got tired and you could tell when they were going up and missing," said Clarke, who went 6 for 6 to finish with 11 points. "We were able to capitalize. You need that going in against a team like this on the road to maintain. Thats what we were able to do." James Youngs 3-pointer brought Kentucky (21-7, 11-4 Southeastern Conference) within two, but Haydar made two more from the line with 17 seconds left for the final margin.

Despite outscoring Arkansas in the lane, the Wildcats missed many from close in as the Razorbacks disrupted their flow shooting and passing. "They beat us to loose balls," Kentucky coach John Calipari said. "We missed 10 one-foot shots. We missed all free throws that mattered. We have a lead late, were leaving timeouts and not executing. "We took two steps back today. Give them (the Razorbacks) credit, they played hard." The Razorbacks also gained bragging rights in a matchup of the SECs top two offences. But they had to do it at the foul line with baskets hard to come by for both teams in a scrappy if sloppy second half.

Cauley-Steins dunk at the 5:31 mark provided Kentuckys first lead since the early minutes. But the Wildcats missed three of four free throws late in regulation along with a couple of jumpers.
