Tennessee Rallies Past Arkansas In Closing Minutes

Lady Vols overcome nine point second half deficit to top Razorbacks

FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) - It looked like Arkansas was poised to pick up their first SEC win of the season but No. 7 Tennessee had other ideas.

The Lady Vols outscored Arkansas 23-11 over the final eight minutes to pull past the Razorbacks for a 60-51 win at Bud Walton Arena.

It was the third straight game for Arkansas against a top 15 ranked team, marking the first time in program history the Razorbacks had such a stretch.

Jessica Jackson finished with a game high 18 points off the bench for Arkansas while Melissa Wolff added 10 points and 10 rebounds. Tennessee was paced by Cierra Burdick with 17 points while Ariel Massengale finished with 16 points off the bench, including four 3-pointers.
