FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – No. 23 Arkansas Women’s Basketball won its second straight game on Monday night, moving to 2-0 with a 101-58 win over McNeese State. It was Arkansas’ first game this season scoring 100 or more, and the third time in the Neighbors Era the Hogs have reached the century mark.
Redshirt junior guard Chelsea Dungee led the way for the Razorbacks, dropping in 19 points on an efficient seven of eleven shooting. Dungee also pulled down eight rebounds and picked up two steals. Taylah Thomas recorded her second straight double-double of the season, scoring 11 points while snaring 11 rebounds.
