DALLAS, Tx. - 11 minutes, 26 seconds doesn't seem like a long time. However, in basketball, it seems like an eternity to go scoreless from the field for that long.
The Arkansas Razorbacks gave up a late second half lead, losing in overtime 71-62 to the No. 25 Texas A&M Aggies Saturday afternoon in Dallas. Rotnei Clarke led the Hogs with 14 points. Khris Middleton scored a career-high 31 points to lead the Aggies.
"Both teams fought and competed hard," said Arkansas head coach John Pelphrey.
Texas A&M raced out to a 9-3 early lead. The Hogs fought back with a 9-3 run of their own to end the half with a 35-33 advantage. The second half was a tale of two halves. The Hogs opened the second frame with a 7-0 run, after two baskets from sophomore Marshawn Powell and a three-pointer by junior Jeff Peterson. The Hogs extended the lead to ten-points before the Texas A&M rallied to tie it late.
