FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – No. 20 Arkansas Women’s Basketball kept rolling on Wednesday night, beating Belmont 91-66 at Bud Walton Arena. The Hogs beat an opponent by 30+ for the fourth straight game, moving their point differential on the season to 32.4.
Three players crossed the 20-point threshold for Head Coach Mike Neighbors against the Bruins: redshirt junior guard Chelsea Dungee (21), freshman guard Makayla Daniels (21) and senior guard Alexis Tolefree (20).
The Hogs started fast once again, opening the game with a 13-4 run out of the gate. However the sledgehammer was dropped from the 3:56 mark of the first quarter to the 7:23 mark of the second, when the Hogs scored 18 unanswered to make it a 36-11 game early in the second frame. Dungee, Daniels, Tolefree, sophomore guard Rokia Doumbia and redshirt junior guard A’Tyanna Gaulden all scored on the run, and the Hogs wouldn’t look back.
- Dungee scored 21 points in the game, and has now scored 20+ points in 22 of her 42 games in the Red & White.
- Tolefree’s 20 was a season-high for her, and was just two shy of her career-high. It was her third time dropping 20+ points.
- Daniels continues to score it well, as her 21-point game tonight was the second time in the last three games the freshman has cleared 20 points.
- Redshirt freshman Erynn Barnum led the Hogs in rebounding, pulling down eight boards. Barnum also had two rejections in the game to lead the squad.
