Normally I try to keep all Ladyback info under the troughs but I thought this deserved recognition. Under first year head coach Tom Collen the Lady Razorbacks beat Sam Houston St. 89-62 to bring their record to 9-0. That is the best start in school history.
“We’re pretty happy about it, and I’m sure Coach Collen’s pretty happy about it in his first year, but we just want to continue it on and not let this get to our heads,” senior center Lauren Ervin said. “We want to keep working hard in practice and play hard the next game.” Arkansas’ previous best start was 8-0 to open the 1999-2000 season. Arkansas lost to Memphis in North Little Rock in its ninth game that season before eventually advancing to the semifinals of the WNIT.
