    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Courtney Fortson scored 24 points -- including nine in a row late in overtime -- to lead Arkansas over Auburn 82-79 on Saturday.

    Fortson's 3-pointer broke a 71-71 tie, and he later hit from the perimeter and made two free throws with 40.6 seconds left to make it 78-73. After an Auburn miss, Fortson made a layup for a seven-point lead.

    Auburn (11-12, 2-6 Southeastern Conference) had forced overtime with Andre Malone's layup on wild play in the final seconds of regulation. The Tigers nearly tied it again on the final play of overtime, but Frankie Sullivan's midcourt shot hit the back of the rim.

    Arkansas (12-11, 5-3) has won four straight.
