Alabama Women’s Basketball Falls to Arkansas, 68-50...

on Monday, January 16, 2017

Crimson Tide Women's Basketball:

The Alabama women's basketball team dropped a 68-50 decision to Arkansas on Sunday afternoon in Coleman Coliseum. With the loss, the Crimson Tide moves to 14-4 on the season and 2-3 in Southeastern Conference play, while the win brings the Razorbacks to 12-6 overall and 1-4 against league opponents.

"Credit Arkansas," said Alabama head coach Kristy Curry. "I thought they played great today. It was one of those days where they played great, and we didn't play very well. Sometimes you just credit those guys and get ready for the next one. 

I think we outscored them 32-28 (in the second half). You can't only play two quarters though. You have to play consistently. Credit those guys today. My hat is off to Coach Dykes and his team. You pick up and just move forward."

Alabama had three finished in double figures, led by junior Ashley Williams, who had 13 points to go along with six rebounds. She was followed by sophomore Shaquera Wade with 11 points and junior Meoshonti Knight with 10 points. Junior Hannah Cook pulled down a team-high eight rebounds, while freshman Ashley Knight tallied four blocks. Five of the eight that played for Arkansas finished in double figures, including freshman Jailyn Mason, who had a game-high 15 points.

For the game, Alabama made 30.9 percent (17-55) of its attempts, while Arkansas was 45.0 percent (27-60) from the floor, including 75 percent (12-16) in the first quarter. The Razorbacks outrebounded the Tide, 47-31, and had 22 bench points compared to Alabama's 10.

"We just talked about how we were going through some adversity, and at the end of the day you either let adversity work on you, or you work on it," added Curry. "My thing is sometimes you just have to make a way, and that starts with you as an individual. Everybody wants the same thing in that room, 

I can promise you, and that's to be successful, but do we understand what that means? We've got to have great effort and great energy every day and every play, and I think there is too much inconsistency to think it's going to be okay. We're depending on somebody else to make a play or do something, so at the end of the day we certainly want to improve and we feel like we are improving every day, even though the scores the last two games haven't looked like we want."

The Tide will play its third consecutive home game on Thursday when it hosts No. 4 Mississippi State at 7 p.m. CT.
