Florida beats Arkansas 87-83, winning 9 of last 10 in series
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) Dorian Finney-Smith scored 22 points, Chris Chiozza added 17 and Florida beat Arkansas 87-83 Wednesday night for its fifth win in the last six games.
The Gators (15-7, 6-3 Southeastern Conference) also continued their recent dominance in the series, beating the Razorbacks (11-11, 4-5) for the ninth time in the last 10 games and extending their home-winning streak against Arkansas to 11.
The Hogs hit four 3-pointers in the final minute and made it a two-point game with 6.5 seconds remaining. But Florida closed it out from the free-throw line, with KeVaughn Allen hitting both with 5.6 seconds to play.
This one was close earlier and for much of the night - until Finney-Smith and Chiozza took over down the stretch.
