FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – The box score will read like a typical night for Arkansas’ big three of Dusty Hannahs, Moses Kingsley and Anthlon Bell but it was anything but a normal game.
Texas Tech saw for Red Raider Dusty Hannahs erupt for 21 points in the first half but rallied from 11 points down in the second half to force overtime.
But in the extra five minutes, Arkansas took over with the help of Moses Kingsley.
After being held scoreless and without a rebound in the first half, Kingsley finished with 17 points and 10 rebounds as the Razorbacks survived for a 75-68 overtime win inside Bud Walton Arena.
Hannahs finished with a game high 25 points while Anthlon Bell added 12, 11 of which came after halftime. Texas Tech was paced by Zach Smith with 19 points while Aaron Ross added 14. Ross, a Little Rock native, was high school teammates at Parkview with current Arkansas guard Anton Beard.
Kingsley started the overtime period with a tip in to give Arkansas a 63-61 lead and the Razorbacks never trailed in overtime. Arkansas put the game away as Anthlon Bell’s 3-pointer was followed by a steal and breakaway slam from Kingsley to build a five point with less than two minutes left in overtime.
