PLAYER OF THE GAME: Freshman Dominique Wilson had a career night for Arkansas, and she had her shooting touch going early. Wilson tied her career high, scoring 12 points in the first half, including three from beyond the arc.
PLAY OF THE GAME: Early in the first frame, Arkansas got the momentum going on an all-out effort play. Dominique Robinson drove to the hoop and missed, but battled for her own rebound. From the ground she rolled a pass out to Wilson in the corner, who drained a three pointer with the shot clock expiring.
TURNING POINT OF THE GAME: The game was even in the early going when Georgia scored consecutive baskets to take a 9-8 lead. Arkansas responded with a flurry, going on a 14-0 run sparked by three pointers by Wilson and Calli Berna, and took a 22-9 lead.
UNSUNG HERO OF THE GAME: Senior Sarah Watkins stepped up in the second half. After scoring six points in the first half, Watkins led the team in the final stanza, scoring eight points on 4-7 shooting before fouling out.
STAT OF THE GAME: It's not off that your bench outscores the starting lineup, but Arkansas' two leading scorers in the game started on the sidelines. Freshman Dominique Wilson and Sarah Watkins have combined for nine starts already this season, and the duo combined for 26 points. The Razorbacks have a deep roster with a variety of scoring options, and they got a total of 33 points from their bench against the Lady Bulldogs.
