A poor fourth quarter sent the Arkansas women’s basketball team to its fifth straight loss on the road.

A poor fourth quarter sent the Arkansas women’s basketball team to its fifth straight loss on the road.


Georgia outscored Arkansas 27-15 in the fourth and beat the Razorbacks, 72-57, on Thursday night in Athens. Arkansas will finish the 2015-16 regular-season with just one win - against LSU in January - away from Bud Walton Arena. Even with the loss, Arkansas will stay out of the bottom four of the Southeastern Conference, which means it will avoid a set of de facto play-in games for the conference tournament early next month.


The Razorbacks (11-17, 6-9) actually led Thursday for more than half the game and were tied entering the final quarter. But a 4 of 17 frame shooting from the floor zapped any chances at a final upset.


Georgia (21-7, 9-6) had four players in double figures scoring, led by Merritt Hempe’s 18. Arkansas’ Jessica Jackson had 15 points and Devin Cosper had another 14.


Arkansas plays its final regular-season game Sunday at 3 p.m. at Bud Walton Arena.
