February 10, 2013TUSCALOOSA | The University of Alabama women's basketball team dropped a 91-80 decision to Arkansas in triple overtime Sunday afternoon in Foster Auditorium.
"Both teams played hard in this game," Alabama coach Wendell Hudson said. "We did a lot of good things, but at the end of the day there were a couple of plays where Arkansas got the loose balls, especially in the last overtime. We've got to finish. We didn't finish. That's just the bottom line. We played hard, but we didn't play smart."
Crimson Tide sophomore Daisha Simmons led all scorers with 21 points in addition to nine rebounds, five assists and two steals. Also notching double-digit points for the Crimson Tide were sophomore Kaneisha Horn with 19, junior Jasmine Robinson with 14 and junior Shafontaye Myers with 11. Junior Dominique Wilson finished as Arkansas' leader in points with 19 while senior Quistelle Williams notched a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds.
In the first overtime, neither team led by more than three, and in the same way regulation ended, Myers connected on another 3-point shot to force a second overtime.
Alabama opened the second overtime with seven unanswered points, but Arkansas came back to score eight of the last nine points, including a 3-pointer from Wilson with 13 seconds to go, forcing another overtime.
In the third, it was all Arkansas, as the Razorbacks outscored the Crimson Tide 15-4.
For the game, Alabama was 35.4 percent (28 of 79) from the floor while Arkansas hit 40.5 percent (32 of 79) of its attempts. The Crimson Tide outrebounded the Razorbacks, 55-52, but committed 25 turnovers to Arkansas' 23.
Alabama (12-12, 2-9 in SEC) travels to Auburn on Sunday with tipoff at 1:30 p.m. It will be televised on ESPN2.
