Dungee ties career high with 28 pts but Arkansas women fall to Georgia

Press Release from Arkansas Athletics

Chelsea Dungee and Malica Monk scored in double figures but a slow start to the third quarter was the difference as the University of Arkansas women’s basketball team fell to Georgia, 80-72, in Southeastern Conference action at Bud Walton Arena on Thursday.

Dungee tied her career-best with 28 points while Monk dropped in 19 points in the Razorback (16-6, 5-3 SEC) loss.

Georgia won the third quarter, 24-12, and that was the difference in the game. Arkansas had a good run to end the first half with a 43-38 lead but the Bulldogs (13-8, 4-4 SEC) opened the third stanza with a 7-2 run surging ahead for the final time.

Arkansas went 3-for-15 in the third quarter and grabbed only six rebounds. Georgia, meanwhile, went 10-for-17 with three 3-point field goals. They had 13 rebounds and forced four Razorback turnovers.

Turnovers were uncharacteristically a problem for Arkansas in the loss as the Razorbacks had eight in the first half and finished with 13 in the game.
