SEC Names Dungee As SEC CO-Player of the Week

NCAA Womens Basketball: SEC Conference Tournament - Texas A&M vs Arkansas Joshua S. Kelly-USA TODAY Sports

To me, it is disrespectful of the SEC Conference to issue out awards this week with the word “CO-” before the word player of the week. So disrespectful that a Ladyback that led her team with 37 points to a huge upset of the undefeated, third ranked UConn Huskies.

The SEC also did this to the Razorback football team when it came to players like Bumper Pool, Joe Foucha, Grant Morgan and Jalen Catalon being named SEC Player of the Week.

Dear SEC:

Stop being petty and recognize Arkansas when it’s players are due. This past week Chelsea Dungee was due the accolades after a once in a lifetime performance against an elite opponent.

That is all.

Signed all Razorback fans

P.S. We still hate you for the ending of the Auburn game and the bogus Jalen Catalon ejections.

Here is the Player of the Week for SEC Women’s Basketball from the conference office:

“Arkansas’ Chelsea Dungee scored 37 points against the No. 3 Connecticut Huskies, the most by any player has scored against them since the 1999-2000 season. She did so on an incredibly efficient line: 13-21 from the field, 4-5 from three and 7-10 from the free throw line.

Dungee has now scored 37+ points four times in her career, the most such performances in program history - 41 against Auburn (2-7-19); 37 against Houston (3/21/19); 38 against Mizzou (1-12-10); and 37 against UConn (1-28-21). Of the 11 37+ point performances from Hogs ever seen in Bud Walton Arena, men’s or women’s hoops, Dungee now has four of them. That matches Mason Jones’ mark of four such games. The redshirt senior was the engine that powered Arkansas’ historic offensive output against UConn.

Arkansas’ 90 points scored was the most by any opponent since 2001, while the Hogs’ 52 percent from the field mark was the highest FG percentage allowed by the Huskies since 2011. Dungee also chipped in with 16 points in the Hogs’ win over Auburn Sunday. Despite trailing by as many as 13 in the early part of the second quarter, Dungee and the Hogs went on a blistering 22-4 run in the second quarter to take back control of that game. Her 16 points kept her double-digit scoring streak alive, as the Sapulpa, Okla. product has now scored 10+ in 23 straight games.”
