FAYETTEVILLE -- Arkansas made a fierce comeback to cut a late 15-point deficit down to 2, but the Florida Gators held on while continuing their regular-season mastery of the Razorbacks, winning for the third consecutive time at Bud Walton Arena, 57-51, on Wednesday as both teams now sit 1-1 in SEC play.

Florida (9-5) has not lost to Arkansas (10-4)  in the regular season in nearly 6 years. The Hogs did end an 8-0 losing skid against the Gators, 80-72, in the 2018 SEC tournament in St. Louis, but the last time Arkansas won a regular-season game against Florida also marked its last home win against the Gators, 80-69, on Feb. 5, 2013.

Florida snapped Arkansas's 3-game winning streak as the Hogs lost for the third time at BWA this season. The loss also dropped Anderson-led Arkansas teams to 2-10 against Florida.

"We talk about the sense of urgency in conference games and every game is going to have a different adventure," Arkansas head coach Mike Anderson said. "We saw where we didn't show up with that sense of urgency in the first half and allowed Florida to get a cushion that went up even bigger in the second half. In the first half we turned the ball over 12 times and so you talk about experience vs. inexperience, you saw that tonight on display.
