Not Done Yet
LSU got the best of Arkansas once again this past weekend in the Southeastern Conference Tournament.
After dominating Ole Miss the night before in a 67-47 win, the Razorbacks fell just short of beating the Tigers and were eliminated from the tournament.
“We probably had the game in hand or at least it appeared that we had it in hand then just found a way to let it get away,” Arkansas coach Tom Collen said.
Arkansas was up until the final seconds of the game when the Tigers sunk a 3-pointer to win 41-40.
“We probably didn’t do enough good things to win the basketball game but we’ll grow from it, we’ll learn from it,” Collen said.
Despite the early out from Nashville, the Razorbacks won their first SEC Tournament game under Collen.
ESPN projected Arkansas as a No. 5 seed against 12th-seeded Gonzaga in the Des Moines Region.
Before finding their seeding, the Razorbacks still have one final late regular season game at SIU-Edwardsville on Thursday.
“We’ve got one more regular season game then the NCAA tournament,” Collen sad. “We’ll bounce back. This team always bounces back.”
Five Razorbacks received SEC honors last week.
Collen was named women’s basketball SEC Coach of the Year. Senior guard C’eira Ricketts was named to the All-SEC first team.
Junior Sarah Watkins was awarded All-SEC second-team. Freshman Calli Berna was named to the SEC All-freshman team and senior Julie Inman was part of the SEC Community Service Team.
