Auburn wins second straight SEC game

Tay Waller and Lucas Hargrove had 14 points apiece to lead Auburn to a 75-62 win over Arkansas Wednesday night in Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum.

"We found our shooters, we rebounded the ball pretty well and Tay made a couple of shots," Hargrove said. "When Tay starts making shots, it's over."

The win moved Auburn to 15-9 overall and 4-5 in the conference, tied with Ole Miss for third in the SEC West.

"Each one gets us a little bit closer," AU head coach Jeff Lebo said. "We got a big one coming up here at home against Mississippi State.
