The team extended their winning streak after wins over Alabama and Florida. First the Hogs got 16 points and four assists from Malica Monk in a 72-61 win over the Tide at home. Monk topped that performance with 25 points on 11/16 shooting to help beat the Gators 83-73 on the road. She wasn’t the only one putting up big numbers as Chelsea Dungee had 25 points as well.
This puts the Hogs at 16-5 overall and 5-2 in SEC play, currently in a tie for third. The schedule is going to get a lot tougher for Mike Neighbors’ squad but they’ve already passed last seasons win total for both overall and SEC games and they haven’t even gotten to February yet.
The Hogs had a season high score of 195.825 at the Metroplex Challenge in Dallas. The Hogs came in fourth in the event but all three teams ahead of them were ranked in the top-15. No. 1 Oklahoma won the event, and No. 7 Denver and No. 15 Missouri rounded out the top three.
On the road, the Hogs got a tight win over Cornell, 4-3. They came from behind after losing the doubles point and with the score tied at 3-3, Jose Alonso won his second set tiebreaker to clinch the match for the Hogs. That win meant they would go on to face Ohio State before falling to them 4-1.
They dominated some opposition that honestly was too overmatched for this level of competition. In a 7-0 win over ULM, the Hogs only dropped one set. And against UAPB in a double header, it was even more lopsided, where the Hogs completely blanked them from the scoreboard.
Track and Field
Both the men and women stayed at home for the Razorback Invitational. The men finished third and were headlined by Gabe Moore’s win in the Heptathlon. They also added a runner to the sub-4 minute mile club with Cameron Griffith, who finished second in the event.

Kiara Parker broke the school record in the 60M and had the fourth fastest time in the world for this season. Peyton Chadwick’s time of 8.02 in the 60 meter hurdles was the third fastest at an NCAA meet this season.
