He hit clutch shots again Saturday, scoring all nine of his points on a trio of 3-pointers in the second half as Arkansas tried to stage a comeback. Gafford put an exclamation point on the win with a windmill dunk with 15 seconds left.

Florida started strong with a combination of three pointers and inside shots.

In Florida's 88-73 victory over Arkansas in the O'Connell Center on January 17, Allen scored 28 points and hit 8 of 12 shots while junior Jalen Hudson scored 21.

"I thought our guys were dialed in", Anderson said. "That's real big for those guys that never had the chance to get the feel of the NCAA".

On the season, Arkansas basketball averages 82.0 points, 35.0 rebounds and 15.0 assists per game.

After a 3-pointer by Mike Okauru with 4:54 to play to take a 29-22 lead, 7 points, the Gators went scoreless for the rest of the first half as Arkansas finished it out with an 8-0 run the final 3:49 to take a 1-point lead 30-29.

The Rebels fell behind early to SC in the first-half of the game, but in the closing minutes, Ole Miss charged back to make it a 38-36 game at halftime behind the play of Breein Tyree. Defensively, Florida yields 69.1 points per game against the opposing teams.

Barford started the Razorbacks' run with a driving basket. Gafford leads in rebounds with 6.2 while Macon tops in assists with 4.0.

In the second half, Ole Miss got out to a five-point lead.

It was the 40th consecutive victory for the Razorbacks when they led after the first half.

"I'm not gonna tell you what time I went to sleep", he said, with a deadpan look. They'll travel on Wednesday, have meetings on Thursday then play on Friday. They had our number. Because they were one of the top four seeds, the Volunteers were playing only their second game of the tournament. The Gators went just 12 for 28 on two-point shots, compared to 13 of 32 on 3-point attempts.

It took several minutes before Mike Anderson sent a reminder to his players that they are only as good as their defense. "And that's what we did".

Arkansas' Daryl Macon, left, reaches for a rebound along with Florida's Chris Chiozza, center, and Jalen Hudson, right, during the second half Friday night in the quarterfinals of the Southeastern Conference tournament in St. Louis. That was the SEC regular-season opener for Tennessee, which fell to 0-2 in league play a few days later by losing to Auburn.

Arkansas beat Tennessee 95-93 in overtime in Walton Arena on December 30 to open SEC play.

Barford said they're not through yet. The Razorbacks rank 196th in rebounds allowed per game (36.0).

"I still think we've got some really good basketball in us, especially when we come out with that kind of intensity".

"At this time of the season, our league is so balanced that on any given night anybody can beat anybody", Anderson said.
