It was a busy week on the hill.

NCAA Basketball: Tennessee Tech at Arkansas Gunnar Rathbun-USA TODAY Sports

Women’s Basketball

Their winning streak came to an end after two close losses at home. First the Hogs lost 72-80 to Georgia, and then they led to start the fourth quarter against South Carolina, but couldn’t close out the upset and falling 79-87.

Chelsea Dungee and Malica Monk were huge for the Hogs in both losses. Dungee averaged 30 points between the two games. She set a career high 28 against Georgia and broke that with 32 the next time out. Monk averaged 22 points per game in the two contests.

Gymnastics

Arkansas set a season high score but fell to No. 6 Georgia on the road 197.475-196.125. The brutal schedule continues for the Hogs but the scores have improved. They were led by Sophia Carter who had Arkansas’ top score of the night, a near perfect 9.950 on floor routine.

Men’s Tennis

It was a smooth doubleheader for the Hogs, who beat Omaha 7-0 and topped Tulsa 5-2. Arkansas split their squads in the two matches but Alex Rico got a win in each match in addition to helping secure a doubles win in each as well.

Women’s Tennis

The Hogs had a huge upset, taking down No. 9 Oklahoma State 4-3 at home. After losing the doubles point the Hogs had to rally. They tied things up at 3-3 and Jackie Carr cameback from a first set loss to win the match for the Hogs 6-7 (5-7), 6-2, 6-4. They couldn’t pull an upset twice in a week though as they lost to Oklahoma a couple days later.

Track and Field

The two teams didn’t send full squads to their respective events but were still successful. Erich Sullins won the weight throw in his meet out in New Mexico. The top ranked women travelled to the Lone Star State for the Charlie Thomas Invitational. All they did was casually win the 60 meter, 200 meter, 400 meter, and 800 meter races.
