FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas women’s basketball team heads back to the hardwood hosting Tennessee Tech in non-conference action Tuesday at 7 p.m. in Bud Walton Arena.
The Razorbacks (5-3) are coming off a tough road loss at No. 23 Iowa State in Ames. The physical game saw four players in double figures for Arkansas, paced by a career night for Chelsea Dungee who scored 27 points. Malica Monk added 22 points while Alexis Tolefree and Jailyn Mason scored 10 points each for the Razorbacks.

Arkansas is halfway through their challenging nonconference schedule. They return to the road to face an Abilene Christian team who could be 9-1 at that time.
“We’re excited to host for the first time ever, and maybe the only time, an SEC opponent in Arkansas, said TTU seventh-year head coach Julie Goodenough. “You just don’t see Power 5 schools playing at mid majors very often, so we want to maximize this rare occasion.”
The Razorbacks also take on a tough Nebraska team in Bud Walton and have to travel to Tulsa, who is also playing well.
The tough schedule should have Arkansas ready for Southeastern Conference play which begins after the holidays. Seven SEC teams are recognized in this week’s Associate Press Top-25 along with two of the Razorbacks’ nonconference opponents.
