Arkansas Hosts Ole Miss on Senior Day
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas women’s basketball team welcomes Ole Miss Sunday for a 3 p.m. contest in Bud Walton Arena. It is the final regular season game for both teams and the Razorbacks will honor senior Melissa Wolff in a pre-game ceremony.
The Razorbacks (11-17, 6-9 SEC) are looking for the win over Ole Miss (10-18, 2-13 SEC) and could move up in the final SEC standings with some help from other league teams. If the scenarios play out correctly, Arkansas could move from No. 10 to No. 9 overall and pick up the program’s seventh SEC win – the most since 2011-12.
The one-spot difference could be big in terms of who the Razorbacks would draw in the SEC Tournament in Jacksonville, Florida, next week. As a 10-seed Arkansas would face the No. 7 seed with the winners moving on to play the No. 2 seed. Moving to No. 9 would pit Arkansas against the No. 8 seed with the winner moving on to face the No. 1 overall seed and third-ranked South Carolina in the quarterfinals.
All-Southeastern Conference candidate Jessica Jackson leads Arkansas in her junior season. The Jacksonville, Arkansas, native ranked fourth in the SEC with 16.6 points per game and is ranked in seven statistical categories this week.
The Razorbacks will also recognized the accomplishments of Razorback senior Wolff. The Cabot, Arkansas, native is one point shy of her career 700th point. She surpassed the 700-career rebound mark at Georgia and will be just the fifth player to reach the 700+ milestone in both stat categories.
Arkansas will also say a special thanks to senior managers Justine Yu and Maggie Bricker before the game.
A reminder to fans, tickets are just $1 for general admission seats and it is Sunday Fun Day.
