FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Trey Thompkins' free throw with 1.4 seconds remaining lifted Georgia to a 60-59 win over Arkansas on Wednesday night.
Thompkins, the Bulldogs' leading scorer at 17.1 points per game, was scoreless in the first half and missed his only shot after two early fouls limited him to just four minutes. The junior scored Georgia's first six points of the second half, finishing with 12, and the Bulldogs never trailed again in snapping a two-game losing streak.
Gerald Robinson led Georgia (15-6, 4-4 Southeastern Conference) with 14 points, and Jeremy Price added 11. The Bulldogs outrebounded the Razorbacks 43-28 and shot 52 percent in the second half after connecting on just 10 of 34 shots (29 percent) in the first half.
Marshawn Powell led Arkansas (14-7, 4-4) with 16 points. The loss was the first of the season in Fayetteville for the Razorbacks, who are now 12-1 at home.
