LADY REBELS BOUNCE RAZORBACKS
3/5/2009 2:51 PM
North Little Rock - The Arkansas Razorbacks opened the SEC Womens Tournament in Alltel Arena today playing the Ole Miss Lady Rebels. Ole Miss gave the Razorbacks a full dose of Thomas. Bianca Thomas that is. Thomas had 31 points in the game to lead all scorers. She made jumpers from all over the court. Sometimes it seemed as if she was making shots from Pine Bluff she was so far behind the three point line.
Arkansas tried to answer with Whitney Jones and Ceira Rickets, who both had double-double performances for the Razorbacks. The question for the Hogs is will they play anymore games this year or was this their last game.
The WNIT might be calling for them, and according to Head Coach Tom Collen they would play in the post season wehter it be in Fayetteville or on the road.
Arkansas had fan support even though the game tipped off at high noon, they just didn't give their fans enough opportunities to stay on their feet. Ole Miss had something to do with that though, hitting key baskets to keep their lead intact.
Ole Miss will now face regular season champion Auburn tomorrow at noon.
The Razorbacks will wait on the call from the WNIT, and if it ever comes, they will answer it.
