The Razorbacks had three players in double figures paced by a 15-point effort from sophomore Jailyn Mason. Junior Malica Monk added 13 points and graduate student Devin Cosper dropped in 10 points in her final home game.
The Razorbacks’ (12-16, 3-12 SEC) opening minutes forecasted a good game with the teams matching each other in pace and score. But the Aggies (21-8, 10-5 SEC) sprinted out of the media timeout with an 8-0 run that Arkansas struggled to overcome for the rest of the contest.
