The SEC postponed Arkansas' game Thursday with the Rebels and Mike Neighbors said Wednesday morning it's time to be "bendable."
Arkansas started fast, then had to hold off a bigger, stronger Mississippi State squad for an 86-80 win at Bud Walton on Thursday night.
Razorbacks' coach Mike Neighbors has seen his team come up short too often this year in close games, but that paid off with win Thursday night.
Destiny Slocum (26 points, 4 assists) missed nearly the entire third quarter with an injury on her left hand that has bothered her all year.
With an experienced team holding a lead in the fourth quarter, Arkansas knew how to hold onto it, Bulldogs coach Nikki McCray-Penson said.
The last Mississippi State game was Jan. 28 but Nikki McCray-Penson thinks they've gotten better in practices before facing Hogs on Thursday.
The Bulldogs haven't played since Jan. 28 and Mike Neighbors said Wednesday that usually means either rest or rust but no idea which one.
