LAST TIME OUT
- No. 21 Arkansas fell at home on Thursday night, dropping the first of two straight in Bud Walton Arena to Georgia, 64-55.
- Georgia turned the Hogs over 20 times, a season-high for the Razorbacks, while also holding Arkansas to just three three-pointers, a season-low.
- Redshirt freshman Erynn Barnum was the Hogs’ leading scorer, matching her career-high with 14 points, while shooting 50 percent from the field (6-12) and from three (1-2).
- Chelsea Dungee was the only other Hog to reach double-figures, as she went for 13 points. Gabby Connally led the way for Georgia, going for a game-high 18 points.
- It looked as if Arkansas might beat Georgia, as the Hogs had a seven-point lead with 3:13 to play in the third quarter after a lay-in from sophomore guard Rokia Doumbia.
- Barnum was fantastic in the third, going on a solo 7-0 run in just over a minute of clock time early in the period.
- Georgia rolled from them on, though, closing the game on a 28-12 run over the end of the third and throughout the fourth period. That run included a 19-2 spurt that put the game just out of reach.
- Barnum matched her career-high in points, going for 14.
- Dungee scored in double-figures for the ninth straight time.
- Senior guard Alexis Tolefree led the Hogs on the glass, pulling down seven rebounds.
- Doumbia recorded three steals, a new career-high.
- Redshirt freshman Erynn Barnum has started to play well as of late.
- Barnum played the best game of her young career against Tulsa, going for 14 points and 12 rebounds, the first double-double of her career.
- It was the first points-rebounds double-double by a freshman Razorback since Jessica Jackson went for 21 points and 11 rebounds against Ole Miss back in 2013.
- It was the first double-double of any kind by a Hog freshman since Jailyn Mason had 10 points and 10 assists against Ole Miss back in 2016.
- Barnum followed up her first-career double-double with another 14-point showing against Northwestern State, matching her career-high.
- Barnum led the Hogs with 14 against Georgia, once again matching her career-best.
- The redshirt freshman also leads the Hogs in blocked shots, with 21 (1.1 per game) so far this season. She had a career-high four of them in her return to Little Rock, the first four-block game by a Hog freshman since 2017.
- Alexis Tolefree and Amber Ramirez have been arguably the most lethal three-point shooting tandem in the country this season.
- The duo has combined for 119 three-balls so far this season, the most by a duo in the NCAA.
- Ramirez currently leads the SEC and is fourth in the nation with 65 treys, while Tolefree is third in the league and tied for 17th nationally with 54 long balls.
- That volume becomes even more impressive when you take the pair’s efficiency into account.
- Arkansas is the only school in the NCAA with two three-point shooters in the top-15 in terms of percentage (Ramirez, 10, 45.1/Tolefree, 11, 45.0).
- Together, they are shooting threes at a staggering .451 clip (119-264).
- The duo is currently 39-91 (.429) in SEC only contests.
- Florida is in the midst of a four-game stretch against AP Top 25 teams. The Gators have lost three straight, dropping games to No. 14 Kentucky, No. 24 Tennessee, and No. 12 Texas A&M.
- It will be a strength-vs.-strength matchup on Sunday, as the Gators are the third-best team in the SEC at defending the three so far in conference play (.299). Arkansas, meanwhile, is shooting the long ball at a .408 clip so far in SEC play, the second best mark in the league.
- The Gators are led by freshman Lavender Briggs, who is averaging 13.7 points per game, the best by a UF rookie since Bernice Mosby averaged 13.8 back in 2002-03.
- Before the Gators’ game against Kentucky, Briggs had scored in double-figures in 14 straight games. She also has five double-doubles so far this season.
- Redshirt senior Zada Williams leads the Gators on the glass, averaging 7.5 boards a game. She has grabbed 15+ rebounds in a single game twice already this season.
