SENIOR DAY FOR @RAZORBACKWBB AND LONE VETERAN KEIRA PEAK

Time flies when you’re having fun. Keira Peak looks to close out her career with the University of Arkansas women’s basketball team (18-10, 5-10 SEC) in winning fashion against Missouri (17-11, 6-9 SEC) at Bud Walton Arena on Sunday.
Peak enters the game having scored 931 career points, which ranks her 28th all-time at Arkansas. She also surpassed the 500 rebound plateau this season and became just the 23rd player in program history to reach that milestone. Now over 600 career rebounds, Peak recently moved to 18th in program history and needs just five rebounds to move into 16th all-time.
The Razorbacks and Tigers are scheduled for a 2 p.m. opening tip at Bud Walton Arena on Sunday.

Send your well wishes to @Kpeaky1 with the hashtag #Peakperformance as we celebrate Senior Day Sunday at 2 pm.

@RAZORBACKMTEN WELCOMES KENTUCKY TODAY
SEC play got started for @RazorbackMTEN on Friday against Vanderbilt and continues today at 2 p.m. against Kentucky at the Dills Indoor Center. Live stats will be available hereand admission is free with pizza for fans between doubles and singles play.
Check out this Q&A with senior Mike Nott:

Senior Mike Nott has been a part of the Razorback tennis program for the past four years and has grown tremendously in the process. Nott arrived in Fayetteville following his brother’s lead but found his own place at the George M. Billingsley Tennis Center. As a singles player he has had success but that has been unmatched by his dominant doubles success, culminating in a trip to the NCAA Tournament Round of 16 in 2013. Before the Razorbacks open SEC play at 2 p.m. today, we caught up with him to talk senior leadership and his last season in cardinal and white.

You were ranked in the ITA preseason rankings and you and partner Manfred Jeske are now one of two @RazorbackMTEN ranked doubles pairs. What does that mean to you?

Mike Nott: It was really special. I’ve played with Manfred [Jeske] for four years so it was good to have some success. I think we gained most of our success in the SEC last year where we beat several ranked opponents. Being ranked is, of course, a huge confidence booster and gives not only us but the entire team something to work for. IT proves to me and Mike that we are supposed to be in the top 10 in the country and makes us want to achieve a lot more in the future.

What has been your best moment as a Razorback?

Nott: We had our biggest win at the NCAA Tournament where we went to the Round of 16. I always looked up to my brother’s [Chris Nott] legacy at Arkansas and it was exciting to know that I was going to be leaving my own.

As a senior, how do you think you provide leadership to younger members of the team?

Nott: We have five seniors on our team this year and we’ve kind of divided up the role respectively. Manfred and I have been leading the team in doubles and we can help the younger guys, show them how it’s done. We’ve both got a lot of experience and I think that’s the best way I can help the younger students.

What impact do you think Coach Andy Jackson and Nestor Briceno have had on this program?

Nott: Coach Jackson’s experience is incredible. He’s been around the SEC 35 years, I think. He certainly knows how to win and I believe he can keep that up here. Nestor Briceno has a ton of experience, in addition to Coach Jackson. He was number one in the country in juniors. He’s played under Coach Jackson himself so they fit together really well. I know he’s been recruiting pretty hard so I’m sure he’ll do good things.

@RAZORBACKSWIM’S RACHEL STOEHR EARNS CAREER-BEST SWIM AT LAST CHANCE MEET

Sophomore Rachel Stoehr recorded a personal-best swim on Saturday at the Bulldog Invitational Last Chance Meet held at the University of Georgia in Athens, Ga. The Lake Forest, Ill., native registered that fastest prelim time in the 500-yard freestyle with a career-best and NCAA ‘B’ cut time of 4:45.72. That swim cut 0.98 seconds off Stoehr’s previous best time recorded at the SEC Championships last week. Stoehr finished second in the event final Saturday evening. Swims will begin today with prelims at 9 a.m. CT, and finals at 3 p.m. Live results can be accessed here.

@RAZORBACKWTEN LOOKS FOR ROAD WIN IN LEXINGTON

Facing its second straight nationally-ranked opponent in three days, the No. 33 @RazorbackWTEN team (5-5, 0-1 SEC) looks to get back on track and travels to Lexington, Ky., to square off against No. 31 Kentucky on Sunday.
Despite Yang Pang earning her first win over a ranked opponent this season, the Razorbacks suffered their fourth straight loss in a 6-1 defeat at the hands of No. 8 Vanderbilt on Friday. The sophomore from Nanjing, China, upset No. 60 Georgina Sellyn in straight sets (6-3, 6-1), but it was the only team point earned for UA in the dual match.
No. 33 Arkansas and No. 31 Kentucky are scheduled to begin 10 a.m. Sunday.
