AUBURN, Ala. – B.J. Young scored 25 points and Marshawn Powell had 20 to help Arkansas win for the first time on the road in an 83-75 victory over Auburn on Wednesday night.
The Razorbacks (15-9, 6-5 Southeastern Conference) had lost their first six road games but controlled this one down the stretch.
The Tigers (9-15, 3-8), who have lost eight of nine, trimmed a 12-point deficit to three in the final five minutes. Then Powell and Young combined for the next seven points and Powell also had a nice dish to Mardracus Wade for another basket.
Young, who started for the first time in four games, capped his evening with three free throws and a breakaway dunk in the final seconds. Powell, who had 28 points and 11 rebounds in the first meeting, grabbed nine boards in the Razorbacks' sixth straight win in the series.
