In addition to the five he signed in the fall (including 5* players Danberry and Monk) Dykes has signed four JUCO players this spring, three of which are JUCO All-Americans (Devin Cosper, Angelica de Paulo, and Alecia Cooley). That's one way to overhaul a program very quickly. Dykes' contract was recently extended through 2020. Here's our report on the five players he signed out of high school last fall.
The women's team is listed as an 11-seed on ESPN's latest projection that was published following Arkansas' victory over Ole Miss in the SEC Women's Tournament. They have the Razorbacks listed as the third-to-last at-large team making the field, so it will be a nervous few days for Jimmy Dykes' squad before the field is announced on Sunday.
They finished 17-13 on the season with a win in the conference tournament and an RPI of 43. Season highlights include wins over Iowa, Georgia, and LSU. They started SEC play 0-4 but closed 7-7. They'll have to hope for few upsets in league tournaments that could take away spots from some at-large teams.
