Broadcast Information

The game is at 8:00 p.m. CT and can be watched on the SEC Network

Player to Watch

Myah Taylor

Being that Arkansas’ trio of star guards will be the immediate focus for the Bulldogs, Taylor is more than capable on the defensive end of the floor. Of the three, Taylor is likely to be matched up with Destiny Slocum. As both have a similar game, Taylor will have to take her out of the game early to slow the Razorbacks down and dictate pace.

Slocum is known to create scoring opportunities for fellow guards Amber Ramirez and Chelsea Dungee. If able to neutralize Slocum, Taylor will take away the big play. Taylor is a consistent defensive presence and is unafraid to chances. Look for her to do so and have her way early.

Prediction

Mississippi State upsets to Arkansas 76-72
