Both Arkansas (9-4) and Ole Miss (10-3) enter the SEC contest after bounce-back wins on Thursday. The Razorbacks defeated Grambling State while Ole Miss is coming off a win over Texas Southern.
The Razorbacks had four players in double figures against Grambling State and got double-doubles from Kiara Williams and Malica Monk in the win. Monk has scored in double figures in 13 consecutive games and got her first career double-double with 10 points and 10 assists against the Tigers.
Devin Cosper and Raven Northcross-Baker were also in double figures in the balanced effort.
Arkansas leads the SEC in a couple of categories including fewest turnovers, fewest turnovers per game and in 3-point field goals attempted. Cosper ranks first as an individual with 2.8 made 3-pointers per game, and also leads the league in 3-pointers attempted and made 3-pointers this season.
Scouting Ole Miss
The Rebels are paced by Madinah Muhamad who leads the team with 17.8 points per game. She is one of three Rebels who average double figures. Ole Miss opened the year 9-1, their best start since the 2000-01 season, but lost a pair of games on the West coast prior to the holiday break.
The Razorbacks and Rebels have met in the conference opener two of the last three seasons with Sunday’s game snapping a three-game streak of SEC road openers for Arkansas.
