FAYETTEVILLE - As long as Arkansas is in a frantic game in the final seconds, it will win, apparently.

FAYETTEVILLE - As long as Arkansas is in a frantic game in the final seconds, it will win, apparently.


It was just the Razorbacks women’s basketball team’s second win in seven games, but like the first one, the victory came with a hectic finish. Jordan Danberry’s jumper with seven left broke a tie and last-ditch Alabama chance went wrong as Arkansas held off the Crimson Tide, 69-67, in Bud Walton Arena on Thursday night.


Alabama trailed by three with the ball coming out of a timeout with 21 seconds left. A quick Meoshonti Knight 3-pointer four seconds later had tied the game. No timeout followed and with seven ticks left Danberry hit the game-winner.


The win pulled Arkansas to within a game of .500 in the SEC. The Razorbacks have three regular-season games remaining until the SEC Tournament begins March 2 in Jacksonville, Florida.


Jackson led three Arkansas players in double figures with points. Alabama’s Hannah Cook led all scorers with 24.


Shaquera Wade missed a potential game-tying jumper with three seconds left and Quanetria Bolton’s follow wouldn’t fall as time expired.
