GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The University of Arkansas women's basketball team
travels to Gainesville, Fla., tonight for a matchup
against the University of Florida.
Arkansas is eager to snap a two game losing streak that followed consecutive wins. The Razorbacks are 17-10, 5-9 in the SEC, and seven of their 10 losses have come to ranked opponents. Six of their losses have been by four points or less, as UA has continually gone down to the wire against some top opponents. The test for the Razorbacks will now be to get over the hump and finish conference play strong.
This will be the last week of conference play for the Razorback seniors. The four seniors include leading scorer Sarah Watkins (12.5 points per game) and the second leading scorer and leading rebounder Quistelle Williams (9.5 points and 7.2 rebounds per game). The senior class has been a large part of the team's success this season.
Florida is 16-12, and 5-9 in the SEC. They are led by Jaterra Bonds who averages 12.2 points per game, and is followed by Jennifer George at 12.0 points per game and a team high 8.0 rebounds per game. Arkansas is 8-20 all-time against Florida and 2-6 in the six seasons that Arkansas has been led by Collen and the Gators coached by Amanda Butler.
The game begins at 6 p.m. (CST), is televised on SUN Sports, and is also available on Razorvision to premium subscribers. Fans can also tune in and listen on the radio
