FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- BJ Young led three players in double figures with 13 points as Arkansas opened quickly and never let up in a shocking 80-69 victory over No. 2 Florida on Tuesday night.

The win improves the Razorbacks (14-8, 5-4 Southeastern Conference) to 14-1 at home this season, and it snaps a 10-game winning streak for the Gators -- who had ascended to the No. 2 spot in The AP Top 25 one day earlier.
