Arkansas improved by a single game the Southeastern Conference standings compared to last season, coach Jimmy Dykes’ first. The team will play Tennessee on Thursday at 6 p.m. on the SEC Network in the first round of the conference tournament. Arkansas and Tennessee split their two games this season, with each team winning at home.


The Razorbacks (12-17, 7-9) took advantage of too-aggressive play from Ole Miss (2-14, 10-19), the last-place team in the SEC, on Sunday. Ole Miss committed 29 fouls to Arkansas’ 13 and the Razorbacks made 23 free throws to Ole Miss’ five. It was more than enough to provide the final advantage.


Arkansas would have to improve on Sunday’s performance to make any sort of run next week. Dykes’ team shot just 32 percent from the field, 25 percent from 3-point range and 57 percent from the line. Wolff scored six points, but had 13 rebounds in the win. Jessica Jackson, Kelsay Brooks and Jordan Danberry each finished in double figures scoring, led by Jackson’s 17.
