WNIT: Arkansas knocks off Memphis, 67-57

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Quistelle Williams had a double-double and Dominique Wilson lead three Razorbacks in double figures as the University of Arkansas women’s’ basketball team pulled out a 67-57 win to advance into the second round of the WNIT Thursday.

With the win, Arkansas moves to 20-12 overall and hosts Tulane Sunday at 2 p.m. in Bud Walton Arena.  Tickets for Sunday’s game will be on sale beginning Friday morning.  Contact the Razorback Ticket Center at 479-575-5151 or buy them on-line at ArkansasRazorbacks.com. Tickets will be $6 for youth, $7 for general admission, $11 for reserved seating and $1 for UA students.

“It always feels good to get the win,” Arkansas head coach Tom  Collen said.  “We took a pretty good game and made it hard but I’m proud of the way our team hung in and pulled it out.  It’s good to win, it’s good to play again and I’m glad we are at home.”

Wilson led Arkansas with 15 points followed by sophomore Calli Berna with 14 and Williams dropped in 12 points and had 11 rebounds for the Razorbacks.

It took nearly four minutes for the Razorbacks to hit their first basket from the floor but once Wilson connected on a three from the right side Arkansas’ offense settled into a rhythm.

Arkansas used a deliberate, methodical pace to work back from an early game deficit taking a lead, 6-5, as they continued to extend the advantage as the minutes ticked on in the first half.

The teams moved into the second 10 minutes and Arkansas put together an 8-0 run behind senior Erin Gatling who hit a layup and had two steals behind great team defense as the Razorbacks stretched the lead to eight, 18-10.  Collen was liberal with the bench substituting freely in an effort to wear down the Tigers.

The Arkansas scoring run continued, 13-1, as the Tigers struggled with the Razorbacks’ smothering player-to-player coverage.

  • DSC_0114web.jpg SOCCER: JV Lady Zebras edge Verdigris, 2-1

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
