How to watch No. 10 LSU women’s basketball host Arkansas on Sunday afternoon

The Tigers responded well to their first loss in SEC play, dispatching Alabama with a 20-point win on Thursday night.

They’re back in action at home on Sunday as Arkansas comes to town looking for a win. The Razorbacks (14-5, 2-2 SEC) weren’t in action during the week and also played the Crimson Tide their last time out. That was an 18-point win which also came in Tuscaloosa.

LSU (17-2, 4-1 SEC) took a tumble in the rankings following the Auburn loss but remains No. 10 and will look to climb back up. It will have a big opportunity to do so this week with No. 1 South Carolina coming to town.

But first, here’s everything you need to know to watch Sunday’s game against the Razorbacks.

How to Watch

Injury Report

LSU is healthy entering this game.

What Kim Mulkey said

Per an LSU release:

“Flau’Jae (Johnson) was two rebounds away from a double-double,” Coach Kim Mulkey said. “We’re asking her to guard the best player on the perimeter and we’re asking her to do other things offensively and then go rebound the ball. She was very, very active and that kind of activity is contagious.”

Players to Watch

LSU

  • Points — F Angel Reese (20.1 PPG)

  • Rebounds — F Angel Reese (11.9 RPG)

  • Assists — G Hailey Van Lith (4.5 APG)

  • Steals — G Aneesah Morrow (2.7 SPG)

  • Blocks — G Aneesah Morrow (1.3 BPG)

Arkansas

  • Points — G Taliah Scott (22.2 PPG)

  • Rebounds — G Saylor Poffenbarger (12.8 RPG)

  • Assists — G Samara Spencer (3.3 APG)

  • Steals — G Makayla Daniels (1.9 SPG)

  • Blocks — F Maryam Dauda (2.4 BPG)

Prediction

LSU responded nicely to the loss its last time out, but this is going to be a tougher test, even at home. Arkansas leads the SEC in three-point attempts, and while it isn’t particularly efficient in making them, that will provide the Razorbacks an opportunity to get some points in volume. I expect a close, relatively high-scoring game, but the Tigers will get the job done.

Prediction: LSU 80, Arkansas 72
