Razorback women take down Florida 102-74

Arkansas women’s basketball (15-3, 2-1 SEC) dominated on all cylinders against Florida (12-4, 1-2 SEC) to cruise to a 102-74 victory on Thursday at Bud Walton Arena in Fayetteville.

All five starters reached double digits in scoring with 15+ points each and the team tallied a season-high 23 assists, while out-rebounding the Gators, 43-33.

It was the first time since 2020 that Arkansas has hit the triple-digit mark in total points, and starting SEC play 2-1 is the best for the Razorbacks since the 2010-11 season.

The game was tied five times in the first quarter, which the Hogs ended on a 7-1 run and a lead of 24-19. Arkansas kept the momentum rolling into the second quarter and outscored the Gators 24-8 to lead 48-27 at the half.

Florida came out of the locker room with some fire, scoring the first two baskets, and while the Gators outscored the Razorbacks 28-24 in the quarter, Arkansas maintained a 72-55 lead to begin the fourth quarter.

Arkansas ended the game on an 11-7 run, highlighted by an Emrie Ellis 3-pointer and two free throws by the sophomore, who helped Arkansas pass the century mark for the first time in three seasons for a 102-74 win.
