One off quarter was all it took.

One off quarter was all it took.


Arkansas missed 12 of its last 13 shots in the second as the Razorbacks game at Tennessee went from tied to 14-point Volunteers advantage at the break. That was all Tennessee needed to keep Arkansas at bay the rest of the way in a 75-57 win.


An otherwise fair-to-good performance was done in by the brutal second quarter. Back-to-back jumpers from Devin Cosper and Jordan Danberry tied the game at 23 with 8:48 left, but the only other bucket the Hogs would make was a Kelsey Brooks 3-pointer. Seven Diamond DeShields points in the quarter were just one fewer than Arkansas had in the quarter as a team.


Arkansas (9-15, 4-6 in SEC) would ultimately shoot a meager 36 percent from the floor and cashed in just eight points off 12 Tennessee (14-8, 5-4) turnovers. Cosper (17) and Jessica Jackson (18) combined for 35 of Arkansas’ 57 points. Tennessee had four players in double figures, led by DeShields’ and Mercedes Russell’s 15 apiece.


The loss is Arkansas’ fourth straight. Coach Jimmy Dykes’ team next hosts Vanderbilt at Bud Walton Arena on Monday.
