FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Maybe there is a little "magic" this season at Bud Walton Arena.
Arkansas (15-5, 3-2) overcame a dreadful shooting night, rallying to beat the Auburn Tigers (12-8, 2-4) 56-53 Wednesday night at Bud Walton Arena. The win improves the Hogs to 15-0 at home this season, the school's best home start since the 1998-1999 season.
The Razorbacks shot 4-28 from the field over the first 20 minutes. The Hogs had just 13 points going into the final minutes of the first-half. Auburn did not shoot much better, but still took a 22-19 lead into halftime.
The Tigers extended the lead to 37-30 midway through the second-half. The Hogs then found their offense, going on a 17-6 run. They never trailed after that. Arkansas shot 55-percent from the field in the second-half.
