Auburn basketball coach Tony Barbee says it's time to find another scoring option.

Barbee indicated that the offense will run through Chris Denson when the Tigers host Arkansas on Wednesday.

The role of play-maker typically falls to Frankie Sullivan, but the senior guard is in a slump. Sullivan has averaged 11 points on 30 percent shooting the last seven games.

"It's time to look at somebody else in that position," Barbee said.

Denson had 15 points in Auburn's loss to Kentucky last weekend and has scored in double figures in four of the past five games.

Auburn plays Arkansas at Auburn Arena Wednesday night at 8.
