BATON ROUGE, La. – Arkansas women’s basketball (14-6, 2-3 SEC) fell to No. 10/9 LSU (18-2, 5-1 SEC) on Sunday, 99-68, as the defending NCAA National Champions won the game in wire-to-wire fashion. Samara Spencer led the Hogs with 20 points, her fifth 20-piece of the year, along with seven assists and three steals.

LSU jumped ahead to an early 9-0 lead just 2:19 into the game, forcing Arkansas to take an early timeout. Arkansas continued to struggle out of the timeout, as LSU led 18-0 with 4:15 left in the first quarter. Maryam Dauda then knocked down the Hogs’ first field goal after over six minutes off a 3-pointer.

Dauda would then make another one, which brought some life to the Hogs’ offense, as Arkansas was able to outscore the Tigers 16-7 in the final four minutes of the quarter. Off a miss, Spencer knocked down a 3-pointer to cut the lead to 10, but LSU responded with a jumper. Carly Keats then made Arkansas’ fourth 3-pointer of the game, as the Hogs trailed 25-16 in the first quarter.

The Tigers then went on an 8-2 run, as Arkansas found itself down by 27, 68-41, with 4:53 left in the third quarter.

QUOTES FROM COACH NEIGHBORS

On being down 18 early:

“Weve had a notoriously slow starting team. I have had to call timeouts quite a bit… if we could make it to the first media timeout without calling a timeout it would be a great thing. We didn’t make it very far,” said head coach Mike Neighbors. “This crowd is amazing [and] they are on you. It is worth a few points right when you step in every game, and I don’t care how much you prepare for it, it’s not the same. But I am proud of our kids and how they did it. I told them to take a deep breath and that we have been here before, and then they came out and I thought they were competitive, not good enough to beat them, too many mistakes, but if you look at it, we only had seven turnovers. With the way that we play, we play fast, we are going to shoot teams into 99 points, we didn’t slow down and we didn’t take the air out of the ballthat’s not who we are because we must get better too. I don’t look at the final score, but we have to look at it possession by possession. Yes, I was proud of the way we came back and the way we finished too. I thought we fought in the second half, not at full strength, Saylor hasn’t practiced, and it’s hard going into the game without the leading defensive rebounder in the country being 100 percent. She didn’t practice at all this week, she gave it her best go but obviously she didn’t have enough and against this team. If you don’t have your best stuff, you have zero chance.”

On support for women’s basketball:

“I think [LSU] is really committed to women’s basketball and it’s great to see. They made the commitment. I know Scott Woodward personally, you all can do the research and find out how far back he and I go. He hired me at Washington,” added Neighbors. “So, I know how important he takes women’s basketball, and we are thankful for ADs like him and Hunter [Yurachek] at Arkansas who takes women’s basketball seriously. This crowd has come back out, and it’s a place that when you get your schedule you are hoping it isn’t at LSU.” 

UP NEXT

The Razorbacks will return to Bud Walton Arena for the first time in two weeks to host Kentucky on Thursday, Jan. 25. Arkansas will play Kentucky for the second of two times during the regular season at 7 p.m. on SECN+.
