FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Sophomores Lyndsay Harris and Ashley Daniels paced their respective teams at the annual University of Arkansas Red-White scrimmage in Bud Walton Arena Friday. Harris dropped in 12 points and had two boards leading the white team to the 24-20 win. Daniels scored nine points and grabbed four rebounds for the Red squad. Senior Ashley McCray led all players with 10 rebounds. “It was great to go out there and have a little fun tonight,” Daniels said. “We worked a lot on the plays and it was good to run through those.” “One of the biggest things about tonight was that we got to go back-and-forth,” said Harris. “I thought it was pretty competitive. We still have some things to work on with the offense but overall it was good.” The Razorbacks played two 12-minute halves, something that tested the team this early in the season with limited subs. White led at the half, 12-10, paced by Harris with five points. The Red team was led by Daniels with six points and three boards at the break. The score remained close throughout much of the second period as well with White leading, 18-17, with just under five minutes remaining in the game. McCray laid it in with 3:22 to play giving White the 20-17 lead, an advantage they would not surrender. Harris hit a free through and Harris was good from three-point range as the White lead stretched to seven with just over a minute to play. “These are really hard to play,” said Arkansas head coach Tom Collen. “I wanted us to play with a little more energy but we’ve really been pushing hard in practice and the weight room this weekend. “The best thing about tonight is the chance to run up-and-down the floor and to play in front of some people,” Collen continued. “That’s great for the freshman.” In addition to Harris, the White team got four points from sophomore Jamesha Townsend and three from Southeastern Conference Sixth Woman of the Year Charity Ford. Sophomore Julie Inman and McCray had two points each and junior Skye Rees scored one point for White. The Red team got nine points from Daniels along with five from SEC Co-Freshman of the Year C’eira Ricketts and four from junior Brittney Richardson. Freshman Dominique Robinson added two points for Red. Freshman Quistelle Williams, Ricketts and Daniels all had four rebounds for Red in the contest. Both teams shot well from the charity stripe going 2-for-2. In addition to the game, the Razorbacks took part in pregame autograph sessions and long-range shooting contests along with the Razorback men’s team. Inman teamed with Marcus Britt tying Brittney Richardson and Courtney Fortson with 15 points each in the three-point shooting contest. Britt had a chance to win on his final shot but just missed. The Razorbacks host an exhibition contest with Northeastern State Nov. 4, in the final tune-up before the season opener. Arkansas travels to Hot Springs, Ark., facing Alcorn State in the first event of the season.
