Auburn vs Arkansas

Arkansas 56, Auburn 53


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - BJ Young had 11 points as Arkansas remained undefeated in Bud Walton Arena with a 56-53 win over Auburn.

The Razorbacks (15-5, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) are now 15-0 in Fayetteville this season, though they struggled throughout against the Tigers. It's their best start to open a season since a 15-0 mark at home during the 1997-98 season.

Arkansas shot just 35 percent (19 of 54) and trailed 37-30 before a 17-6 run put it up 47-43. Rickey Scott scored the last five points of the run, and the Razorbacks didn't trail after that.

Ky Madden and Julysses Nobles had 10 points apiece for Arkansas.

Kenny Gabriel led Auburn (12-8, 2-4) with 13 points, while Chris Denson and Frankie Sullivan had 10 each. The Tigers shot 21 of 52 (40 percent) and committed 21 turnovers.
