Dungee starred for the Hogs over the last three years, after transferring from Oklahoma. She was an All-SEC performer in each of her seasons at Arkansas, as well as an All-American in her senior year.
At 22.2 points per game, Dungee led the SEC in scoring this past year. She can hit the threes, but her specialty was getting inside, twisting in for a layup, usually adding an and-1 opportunity.
Her finest moments as a Razorback always came during big games, Her run through the 2018 SEC Tournament as a sophomore was an early stand-out. Her biggest moment this year was scoring 37 points in the epic win over #1 UConn.
Chelsea Dungee is an all-time great Arkansas Razorback, and her journey is just beginning.
