FAYETTEVILLE — No. 23 Arkansas remained perfect, topping Stony Brook (3-1), 88-58, at Bud Walton Arena on Sunday afternoon.

The Razorbacks used a big first half from beyond the arc (7-13) to get ahead and stay ahead, five of which came from redshirt junior guard Amber Ramirez.

Ramirez, who finished the game with a season-high 26 points, was sensational all afternoon. She finished the game with six made 3’s, matching the most made by a Razorback this season. Five of her deep balls came in the first half, helping propel the Hogs to a 21-point halftime advantage.

Turning point

The Hogs had given themselves a little bit of breathing room late in the first quarter, as coach Mike Neighbors’ squad led 23-15 after one.

The Hogs exploded in the second quarter, erupting from beyond the arc, making six straight treys to put the game away.

The run started with the Hogs up 30-23 with 4:56 to play in the second quarter, and saw the Hogs score 21 points in just under four minutes of clock time. During the run, Ramirez hit four 3’s, redshirt junior guard Chelsea Dungee hit one and freshman guard Makayla Daniels hit one.
