A quick 4-0 run by the Lady Backs was answered by a 4-0 run by the Lions and the lead was 32-27, Arkansas with 1:35 left to go. Arkansas closed the half on a 5-0 run to lead 37-27 going into the locker room. 

Hartzog had nine points in the half. while Phillips added eight and Clay had six. 

Arkansas started the second half on a quick 4-0 run and led by as many as 16 (47-31) with 16 minutes left, but the Lions fought back and went on a 14-3 run to cut the lead to five (50-45) with 11 minutes left. The Lady Backs pushed their lead to nine (54-45), but the Lions went on a 6-0 run on two layups from Jones and a pair of freebies from Hartzog and the score was 54-41 Arkansas with 8:13 to go. 

A three pointer from Jaclkson for the Lady Backs pushed the lead up to 11 (70-59) with 45 seconds to play and a jumper from Hartzog the next trip down would provide the final points. 

The Lions shot 36 percent from the field and 33 percent from the three point line, but made 17-19 from the charity stripe to shoot 90 percent from the line. 

Southern forced 21 Arkansas turnovers and scored 17 points off of the miscues, while holding the Lady Backs to just 1-5 from long range in the second half and just 3-11 in the game. 

The Lions will open up the regular season on November 8, with a game at Drury. Tip-off is slated for 5:30 pm from the O'Reilly Events Center in Springfield.
