BY foxsports • January 21, 2012

BJ Young scored 15 points and Arkansas hit its first 11 shots on the way to a 66-64 win over No. 20 Michigan.

Trey Burke missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer, keeping the Razorbacks (14-5) undefeated in Bud Walton Arena this season. It's their second over a ranked opponent at home, following a win over then No. 15 Mississippi State on Jan. 7.

Arkansas built a 34-14 lead on the strength of its early shooting and led 49-33 early in the second half. The Wolverines (15-5) cut the lead to two before the Razorbacks regained control and held on in front of a sellout crowd of 19,050.

Mardracus Wade added 12 points and Rickey Scott and Hunter Mickelson had 11 apiece for Arkansas, which shot 50 percent.

Zack Novak led Michigan with 17 points, and Jordan Morgan had 16.
