Yante Maten had 17 points and 12 rebounds for Georgia (11-6, 4-3 Southeastern Conference), which led 74-68 but helped Arkansas stay close by missing four straight free throws in the final 20 seconds.

Dusty Hannahs led Arkansas (9-10, 3-4) with 24 points. Anton Beard had 18.

Kenny Gaines had 16 points, including a basket that gave the Bulldogs the lead for good at 68-67.
