FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas travels to Vanderbilt for the final regular season Southeastern Conference contest on Sunday.

Scouting Arkansas

The game between Arkansas (12-16, 3-12 SEC) and Vanderbilt (6-23, 2-13 SEC) is scheduled for a 2 p.m. tip and airs online on the SECN+.

Records have fallen under the direction of head coach Mike Neighbors this season. Arkansas likes to shoot the 3-pointer and, as a result, ranks among the SEC and NCAA leaders from distance.

The Razorbacks enter the game with 210 made 3-point field goals, ranking first for single-season makes in program history.

This year’s team also holds the record with 724 3-point field goal attempts, 66 more attempts than the second-best mark in four fewer games.

Graduate student Devin Cosper leads Arkansas from distance with 59 makes and is second on the team averaging 14.2 ppg in her final season.

Junior Malica Monk remains out in front averaging 15.9 ppg and sophomore Jailyn Mason checks in with 10.9 ppg this season.

Scouting Vanderbilt

The Commodores faced the sixth toughest schedule in the country this year and their record reflects that with just six wins and two victories in conference play.

They have three players averaging double figures paced by Chelsie Hall at 12.6 ppg. Rachel Bell averages 10.7 ppg and Christa Reed averages 10.6 ppg this season.

Arkansas is 3-2 against the Commodores in recent games and was one possession shy of a fourth win last year.

The Razorbacks erased a 12-point Vanderbilt lead to challenge for the win in the final quarter but dropped the game, 66-64, in Nashville.

If the season ended today, the Razorbacks and Commodores would meet in game one of the SEC Tournament.

That could change after all of Sunday’s contests are completed.

Up Next

The Razorbacks are currently the 12th seed heading into the final game at Vanderbilt.

The final day’s games will determine the final seed for the SEC Tournament and Arkansas has a shot at that spot. Round one begins on Wednesday with two games beginning at 11 a.m.
