Lady’Backs return to Walton Arena for Miss State on Sunday

FAYETTEVILLE — The Arkansas women’s basketball team tips off another Southeastern Conference Sunday afternoon game at Bud Walton Arena this weekend with Miss State at 2 p.m.

This is Arkansas’ National Girls and Women in Sport celebration day, and members of almost all the Lady Razorback athletic teams will be at the arena to be honored at halftime and to sign autographs for fans.

The Lady’Backs are led by senior guard Brittney Vaughn and post player Sarah Pfeifer. The two had double-digit nights in Arkansas’ midweek game at #2-ranked Tennessee on Thursday.

At 16-4 on the season, Arkansas looks to turn around a two-game slide against SEC opponents. Miss State, 13-6, broke its own three-game SEC losing streak on Thursday night by defeating its archrival Ole Miss at Starkville on Thursday.
