Allen Leads Lady'Backs Past Clemson
Allen had 14 points, followed by Sarah Pfeifer and Lauren Ervin with 13 each and Donica Cosby with 12. Allen and Pfeifer steadied Arkansas through a game of topsy-turvy offense for both teams. "There were a crazy bunch of runs," UA coach Susie Gardner said. "We'd get up 10 and they'd come back. One thing we learned tonight was that we've got a lot of different players who can step up." Ervin's rebound putback drew the fifth foul of Moreemi Davis -- the fourth Tiger to foul out of the game -- and the three-point play with 53 seconds left proved the difference maker. Ervin finished the game with 11 rebounds to go with her 13 points. Tied at halftime, freshman Cosby sparked Arkansas' victory with all 12 of her points in the second half. "We were working with lineups all night long," Gardner said. "Donica went out there and just didn't seem to be phased. She really stood out for us, and hit a big time three." "We wore them out a little bit, but everyone was a part of the game for us. It was tough." Fouls dominated the opening minutes of both halves, but in the second it sent the key inside players for both teams to the bench. Ervin committed three fouls within the first 4:13 of the second half and her counterpart from Clemson, Adrianne Bradshaw had her fourth one minute into the second half. For the game, Arkansas had 26 fouls but managed to avoid fouling out any players while Clemson finished with 31. Cosby scored eight points early in the second half to lead Arkansas to a 48-41 lead with 12 minutes to play. A 6-0 run by Clemson to pull within one, 48-47, was snuffed by back-to-back baskets from Allen to spur a 6-0 return run by the Lady'Backs. Arkansas slowly began to pull away, and got its first 10-point lead on a three-point play by Pfeifer that earned Bradshaw's fifth foul. In the closing seconds of the game, Vaughn chased a loose ball over the press table and fell into the stands, striking her head on a step.
