Still without SEC’s top scorer, Arkansas women fall big to LSU

After falling behind 18-0 in the first six minutes of the game Sunday, the Arkansas women’s basketball team was unable to put up much of a fight against No. 10 LSU in a 99-68 loss in Baton Rouge,

The Lady Razorbacks (14-6, 2-3 SEC) shot 28 percent from the field and made just 12 of 47 attempts from beyond the arc, falling behind by 27 at the half.

Junior Samara Spencer finished with a team-high 20 points, along with seven assists, five rebounds and three steals, but went just 5-of-22 from the field. That was the kind of day it was for a hampered team that had just nine players available to take the court.

LSU standout junior Angel Reese was again dominant in the game, finishing with 16 points and 17 rebounds.

Arkansas was again playing without the SEC’s leading scorer, freshman sensation Taliah Scott, who missed her fourth straight game with a back injury. The Lady Hogs are 2-2 since Scott – averaging 22.3 points per game – got hurt against Kentucky on Jan. 4.

Arkansas has now lost three straight to LUS, since defeating the No. 12 Lady Tigers’ 90-76 at Bud Walton Arena in 2022.

The Lady Razorbacks must now try to heal up and prepare to host Kentucky at home on Thursday night,
