Arkansas hosts Gators in Sunday SEC showdown

FAYETTEVILLE — Fresh from its first Southeastern Conference win of the season, the Arkansas Lady Razorbacks return to Bud Walton Arena for the first of back-to-back Sunday matinee games.

This weekend, the Florida Gators, 12-5, come to town, and the two teams share a common last opponent. Both squads defeated Alabama in their last contest, Arkansas by 14 at Tuscaloosa and Florida by 15 at Gainesville.

The difference is Florida downed the Tide last Sunday, and had an open date this past Thursday while Arkansas was on the road.

The Lady’Backs, 16-2, moved to 1-2 with the win and hope to even their record in league games on Sunday. Seniors Brittney Vaughn and Sarah Pfeifer led the scoring along with junior Ayana Brereton in the last contest. The trio has emerged as Arkansas top three scorers in SEC games after the loss of Lauren Ervin to a season-ending ACL in the league opener.
