Lady’Backs on the road for Bama 6 p.m. start

FAYETTEVILLE — Tom Collen takes his 15-2 Lady Razorback basketball team on the road tonight for a Southeastern Conference matchup with Alabama at 6 p.m. at Coleman Coliseum.

Alabama, 8-9, is 1-1 in SEC play while the Lady’Backs are 0-2 after losing one of the nation’s top players, Lauren Ervin, to an ACL injury in the league opener.

Arkansas rallied to within four in its last SEC game, and Collen said the team is regaining its confidence without the leading scorer and rebounder for the past year and a half.

Bama counters with Coach Stephany Smith’s triangle offense. The Tide struggled early in the season, and has had its share of injury problems as well.

The game is telecast by Cox Sports back to the northwest Arkansas market.
