PLAYER OF THE GAME: Sarah Watkins had the hot hand from the opening tip in this one, and led the Razorbacks with a career high 28 points. She scored 16 of those points in the first half, her second highest performance in a half this season. Watkins also tied a career high with 11 field goals with a great night from the floor to lead Arkansas to their second ever victory in Oxford.

PLAYS OF THE GAME: It was clear that Watkins was hot from even before the game. She showed her range in the morning's shoot around, banking in a trick shot while sitting down in front row. She displayed a variety of shots during the game, displaying her range and knocking down a number of turnaround shots en route to a career night.

TURNING POINT OF THE GAME: The game was face paced in the first 12 minutes, as Ole Miss started 7-19 from the field to take a 23-22 lead. The Razorback defense tightened from there, and the Rebels hit just two of their next 12 shots, and Arkansas went on a 16-12 run into halftime. Arkansas scored 38 first half points, the highest scoring half in SEC play for the Razorbacks.

In the second half, the Razorbacks had a slim 60-57 lead at the under-8 media timeout, and broke it open from there. Arkansas went on a 12-0 run between media timeouts to take a 72-57 lead, and pulled away from there in the 11 point victory.

UNSUNG HEROS OF THE GAME: With Watkins leading the scoring all night long, the Razorbacks still had balance in their scoring, and got strong performances from three other forwards. Quistelle Williams, Jhasmin Bowen, and Keira Peak all had double digits points for the Razorbacks, the first time in SEC play that Arkansas had four players in double digits. With Arkansas getting most of their scoring from their frontcourt, Bowen had 14, and Williams and Peak each added 12 points. 

STAT OF THE GAME: Arkansas took the ball underneath all night long, attacking the Rebels in the pain. Arkansas attempted just six three pointers, with Calli Berna's early make the only three they hit all game long. The Razorbacks were 30-58 from inside the arc in the game, and shot a strong 53.3 percent from the field in the second half to close out the Rebels.
