Second half shooting slump too much for Auburn to overcome in 73-64 loss at Arkansas

Auburn missed 22 straight shots to start the second half Tuesday night in Fayetteville, Ark., digging too deep of a hole in a 73-64 loss to Arkansas at Bud Walton Arena.

The Tigers (7-13) dropped to 0-6 in SEC play for the first time since the 1993-94 season.

Arkansas (13-6, 3-3 SEC) turned a four-point halftime lead to 24 with a 21-1 run to open the second half.

Rotnei Clarke and Julysses Nobles both had 16 for Arkansas. Marshawn Powell added 13 points and 11 rebounds.

The Tigers managed to get as close as six with less than a minute to play, but they couldn't get any closer.

Earnest Ross led Auburn with 15. Freshmen Allen Payne (13 points) and Adrian Forbes (11) also reached double figures.

Auburn plays again Saturday at South Carolina at 1:30 p.m. ET.

The start of that second half was absolutely BRUTAL. "Brick City" doesn't even describe how bad it was...maybe "Brick Universe"...these guys play hard, but without Sullivan and Malone, there's not a shooter out there. Gonna be a long road for Barbee this season.
