Razorbacks Women Rally To Topple No.13 Tennessee
FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – Being nationally ranked is normally a good thing. Being the No. 13 ranked team and playing at Bud Walton Arena has been a bad thing.
For the second straight week, the Arkansas women knocked off a ranked SEC school as the Razorbacks rallied for 64-59 win over Tennessee on Thursday night.
Arkansas (7-10, 2-2) took down previously 13th ranked Texas A&M on Jan. 7.
Tennessee led 32-21 at the half but a monster third quarter gave Arkansas all the momentum. The Razorbacks outscored the Lady Vols 22-8 in the third quarter and led by as much as 10 in the fourth before holding on for the five point win.
Jessica Jackson led the way for Arkansas with 25 points, including 8-of-10 from the foul line, while Devin Cosper added 11 and Jordan Danberry pitched in 10 off the bench. Tennessee was paced by Diamond DeShields with 14 points.
