No. 10 Florida puts end to Arkansas streak in OT

Posted: Updated:
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -

Dorian Finney-Smith scored a career-high 22 points as No. 10 Florida overcame the absence of leading scorer Casey Prather to snap Arkansas' 23-game home winning streak with an 84-82 overtime win on Saturday.

Finney-Smith, starting in place of Prather, also added a season-high 15 rebounds as the Gators (13-2, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) won their seventh in row.

Florida trailed 66-57 in the closing minutes of regulation, but Scotie Wilbekin sent it into overtime with a jumper with two seconds left that tied the game.

Wilbekin finished with 18 points, while Michael Frazier had 15 and Patric Young 10.

Ky Madden led the Razorbacks (11-4, 0-2) who had five players finish in double figures, with 23 points.
