STAR OF THE GAME

As she’s often accustomed to doing, Calli Berna ran the show for Arkansas in its 66-51 win over Middle Tennessee State on Tuesday night. The junior point guard filled up the stat sheet, finishing with eight points, nine rebounds, seven assists and seven steals.

PLAY OF THE GAME

With the shot clock winding down, Berna found Keira Peak open in the corner, as the junior and senior connected on a key three-pointer in the second half.

TURNING POINT OF THE GAME

Peak’s three-pointer in the corner seemed to bring new energy and life to the Razorbacks, as the basket led to a 16-4 run down the stretch and gave the Razorbacks a 61-47 lead with just over two minutes to play. Peak finished the game with a season-high 20 points on 54 percent shooting.

STAT OF THE GAME

6:07: The Razorback defense went to work in preserving the win, locking down the Raiders in the second half and holding the group without a basket for a span of six minutes, seven seconds. Beginning at the 7:23 mark of the second half, MTSU did not make a field goal until a layup with 1:16 remaining.
