Razorbacks out to buck trend with strong finish

Arkansas sophomore guard BJ Young, right, drives along the baseline as Missouri senior Keion Bell defends Saturday in Bud Walton Arena in Fayetteville. Young scored 18 points, including seven points in the final 29 seconds, as the Razorbacks beat Missouri 73-71.

Finishing strong has been a weakness for Arkansas’ men’s basketball teams in recent years. The Razorbacks were a combined 11-32 in February and March during 2009-2012 to fall out of contention for postseason play.
