FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — A blistering shooting performance from guard Samara Spencer powered Arkansas to a WNIT 2nd-round win Monday over Stephen F. Austin.
Spencer dropped 27 points, leading the Hogs to a 60-37 win over the Ladyjacks that sends Arkansas to the WNIT's Super 16. The Razorbacks advance to face Texas Tech for a spot in the Great 8.
Three-point range was where Spencer was especially efficient, connecting on 4-of-6 threes in the first half en route to 15 first-half points.
Makayla Daniels was the only other Razorback to score in double figures, tallying 11 points.
However, the Razorbacks didn't need much scoring thanks to a lockdown defensive performance.
Arkansas held Stephen F. Austin to just 18 points in the first half, and limited the Ladyjacks to just 22% shooting from the field.
The Hogs won the rebounding battle 46-37 and turned 17 SFA turnovers into 17 points on the other end.
