FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas finally ran out of answers at home.
The Razorbacks, despite a career-high 23 points from Ky Madden, saw their 23-game home winning streak snapped in an 84-82 overtime loss to No. 10 Florida on Saturday.
The loss came on the heels of a disappointing defeat at Texas A&M on Wednesday, sending Arkansas (11-4, 0-2 Southeastern Conference) to its first two-game losing streak of the season. The Razorbacks were undefeated at home in conference play last season.

Scottie Wilbekin answered with the game-tying bank shot with two seconds left on the other end for the Gators, who then took control quickly in overtime.
