Coty Clarke scored seven points in overtime and Arkansas upset No. 17 Kentucky 71-67 on Thursday night to complete a season sweep.

Six weeks after Michael Qualls beat the Wildcats with a last-second dunk in OT, Clarke lifted the Razorbacks this time with a 3-pointer and four free throws in the extra period, including two with 36.7 seconds left for a 69-64 lead.

Free throws were the difference in the game, with Arkansas making all six attempts in overtime and going 16 for 16 overall. Kentucky was 12 of 22 from the line.

James Young's long-range basket brought Kentucky (21-7, 11-4 Southeastern Conference) within two, but Arkansas' Kikko Haydar made two more from the line with 17 seconds left for the final margin.

Aaron Harrison and Andrew Harrison each missed a 3-pointer at the end for the Wildcats.

The surging Razorbacks (19-9, 8-7) have won four straight and six of seven.
