Peak also led the Razorbacks to a 79-67 win in the tournament's final game against Oregon by posting her second double-double of the season by recording 24 points and 10 rebounds. She averaged 26.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 3.0 steals per game during the tournament. Peak is Arkansas' leading scorer on the season, averaging 17.7 points through six games.
