FAYETTEVILLE -- Time flies when you're having fun. Keira Peak looks to close out her career with the University of Arkansas women's basketball team (18-10, 5-10 SEC) in winning fashion against Missouri (17-11, 6-9 SEC) at Bud Walton Arena on Sunday.

Peak enters the game having scored 931 career points, which ranks her 28th all-time at Arkansas. She also surpassed the 500 rebound plateau this season and became just the 23rd player in program history to reach that milestone. Now over 600 career rebounds, Peak recently moved to 18th in program history and needs just five rebounds to move into 16th all-time.

The Razorbacks and Tigers are scheduled for a 2 p.m. opening tip at Bud Walton Arena on Sunday.

LISTEN LIVE

Sunday's final home game will air in Northwest Arkansas on KOSM-FM 92.1; in Rogers on KURM-AM 790; in Fort Smith on KFPW-FM 94.5 and 1230 AM; and in Little Rock on KREB-FM 103.7. As always, Alex Perlman and Jeri Thorpe will have the call.

SERIES CAPSULE

Arkansas leads the all-time series against Missouri 8-4 ... the Razorbacks hold a 3-1 advantage over the Tigers in Fayetteville ... UA is 3-1 against Missouri under head coach Tom Collen ... the two programs first met back in the NCAA tournament in 1986 ... the Razorbacks claimed a 69-66 road victory over the Tigers in the most recent meeting in Columbia, Mo., on Jan. 5, 2014. 

SCOUTING MISSOURI

- This is the second meeting between Missouri and Arkansas this season, after the Razorbacks claimed a 69-66 victory in Columbia, Mo., back in January.

- Jessica Jackson had a game-high 22 points in the first meeting, including going a career-high 9-for-10 at the free-throw line.

- Melissa Wolff made her first-career start against the Tigers and stepped right in like a veteran, recording her first-career double-double (14 pts, 12 reb).

- For Missouri, Bri Kulas and Morgan Eye each had 18 points, as Eye hit four three-pointers and played the entire game.

- Two players average double-digit scoring for Missouri, led by Kulas with 18.8 ppg. Kulas ranks second in the SEC for scoring this season.

- Eye also averages double figures with 13.1 ppg. She is efficient from three-poiint range hitting 43.1 percent (102-233 3PT) of her shots from beyond the arc this season.

- Jordan Frericks provides a presence inside for the Tigers, averaging a team-high 7.2 rpg. Kulas also contributes an average of 6.6 boards a contest.

- Missouri leads the league in free-throw percentage averaging 75.9 percent from the charity stripe.

- The Tigers love to shoot from distance, ranked third in the conference for three-point field goal percentage (.375) and lead the league with the most 3FGA (715). The next closest team for 3FGA in the SEC is Alabama at 507.

ACTION JACKSON

- SEC Freshman of the Year candidate Jessica Jackson is averaging 16.3 ppg and ranks sixth in the SEC. The highest-ranking freshman scorer in the conference, Jackson is the only freshman among the top 21 scorers in the league and is just one of three underclassmen in the top 15.

- Jackson ranks fourth in SEC only games averaging 17.6 ppg and is also tied for 16th in the league averaging 6.4 rpg.

- Jackson has reached double digits in 25 of 28 games this season. She had a double-digit scoring run of 10 straight games earlier this season, which surpassed last year's best stretch of nine straight.

- Jackson has scored 13+ points in 22 of 28 games this season, including 15 of the last 18 contests.

- Jackson is also one of the most efficient scorers in the league, ranked 12th in the SEC for field-goal percentage (.423).

- Jackson is a three-time SEC Freshman of the Week selection. 

- Jackson has recorded four double-doubles this season.

- As just a freshman, Jackson became the first Razorbacks to score 31+ points in a game since Dominique Washington scored 37 as a junior (2005-06). Just three Razorbacks have put up 31+ point performances dating back to the 2002-03 season.

BERN'ING UP THE FLOOR

- Calli Berna leads the SEC with 192 assists this season, averaging a league-leading 6.9 dimes per game that also ranks fourth in the NCAA.

- Arguably the most efficient point guard in the NCAA, Berna leads the SEC and is 12th in the NCAA for assist/turnover ratio (2.9).

- Berna has 56 steals this season and is tied for fifth in the SEC averaging 2.0 takeaways per contest.

- Arkansas is 11-0 in games this season when Berna dishes out eight or more assists.

HAVE AN ERASER HANDY

Since she stepped onto campus and into the starting lineup at Arkansas, hometown girl Calli Berna has been rewriting the program record books.

- Last season as a sophomore, Berna posted program records for both single-season assists (208) and SEC-season assists (99).

- This season, Berna is on pace to potentially rewrite both records. With 192 assists, a 6.9 apg average and two guaranteed games remaining (one regular season + at least one in the SEC Tournament), Berna could add another 14 assists to her yearly total for 206 this season and 102 in SEC play.

- Berna is chasing the program's class record for most assists by a junior in a single season. Amy Wright had 198 career assists as a junior, which means Berna is just six helpers away from laying claim to another program record and she still has three games left to reach it.

CAREER STAT WATCH

- Junior Calli Berna enters the game with 488 career assists and recently moved into fifth place all-time, passing Tracy Webb (444, '83-87).

PARTY OF THREE

The freshman trio of Jessica Jackson, McKenzie Adams and Kelsey Brooks has scored in double figures in the same game six times this season. At least two of the three have reached double digits in the same contest seven times. The group of true freshmen has combined to score 40-50 points six times; 30-40 points eight times; 30 points or less 14 times this season.

CHECK YOURSELF

The Razorbacks have displayed active hands lately and most recently recorded seven steals at No. 17/16 Texas A&M. Averaging 9.4 strips per game this season, Arkansas has now snagged a combined 67 takeaways over the last seven games (nearly 10 spg). Kelsey Brooks tied a career-high seven steals against Alabama.
