Arkansas hands Missouri St. 1st loss, 66-62 in OT

Dec 23, 2009 - 3:36 AM FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.(AP) -- Rotnei Clarke drained a 3-pointer with 18 seconds left in overtime and then hit two free throws to seal Arkansas' 66-62 victory over previously undefeated Missouri State on Tuesday night.

The Razorbacks (7-5) have now won five straight after losing consecutive games to Morgan State, East Tennessee State, South Alabama and Oklahoma.

Kyle Weems scored 24 points to lead the Bears (10-1), who were off to their best start since opening the 1996-97 season 10-0.

Clarke, who finished with a team-high 19 points, gave Arkansas a 59-57 lead on a 12-foot jumper with 4.7 seconds left in regulation. But Missouri State forced overtime when Justin Fuehrmeyer caught the inbounds pass near midcourt, took a few dribbles and found Caleb Patterson alone under the basket for a layup at the buzzer.
