FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- BJ Young led three players in double figures with 13 points as Arkansas opened quickly and never let up in a shocking 80-69 victory over No. 2 Florida on Tuesday night.

The win improves the Razorbacks (14-8, 5-4 Southeastern Conference) to 14-1 at home this season, and it snaps a 10-game winning streak for the Gators -- who had ascended to the No. 2 spot in The AP Top 25 one day earlier.

Arkansas opened the game 15 of 20 from the field. Michael Qualls and Marshawn Powell added 11 points each and all 11 players scored for the Razorbacks in their first win over a top 10 team since early in 2008-09.

Mike Rosario led Florida (18-3, 8-1) with 15 points, while Scottie Wilbekin had 14.
