Athens, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Kenny Gaines scored 15 points as the Georgia Bulldogs narrowly won, 66-61, in overtime against the Arkansas Razorbacks in an SEC tilt at Stegeman Coliseum.

Marcus Thornton registered a double-double for the Bulldogs (9-7,3-1 SEC) with 11 points and 13 boards, but he shot just 3-of-11 from the floor on the day.

Coty Clarke logged 13 points and three steals for the Razorbacks (12-5, 1-3), as they have now lost three of their last four contests. Rashad Madden and Fred Gulley had 12 points apiece.

Madden made two free throws with 1:45 on the clock to tie the game at 52-52. After both teams missed two field goal attempts in the remaining time, the game went to overtime.

The Bulldogs finished the day with a resounding 56-34 advantage on the glass and outscored the visitors at the free-throw line by 16, which was just enough for the program to overcome 19 turnovers.
