Five Arkansas players fouled out while No. 7 Tennessee didn’t have any disqualifications in the Volunteers’ 70-63 win Sunday afternoon in Bud Walton Arena.

The Razorbacks led by nine points in the third quarter thanks in large part to Amber Ramirez’ season-high 26 points. It was her first game since December 12 as she returned from an undisclosed injury.

“Coming into the game we knew it was going to be physical with them,” Ramirez said. “It was just a tough game overall. I feel like we battled to the very end.”

Tennessee’s Tamari Key had 17 points, seven rebounds and five blocks, including three in the fourth quarter. She scored five straight points and seven of Tennessee’s 10 during a 10-3 Volunteers run in the fourth quarter that put them ahead for good.

Arkansas starters Makayla Daniels, Jersey Wolfenbarger and Sasha Goforth were among those who fouled out. Daniels joined Ramirez in double figures with 11 points.

Tennessee made 23 of 36 free throws to Arkansas’ 9-of-11.

Arkansas returns to SEC play on Thursday when it travels to Vanderbilt.
