Tolefree continues hot pace leading Hogs to win over Vanderbilt

Arkansas scores 100 points on the road for the first time since 1991 and Alexis Tolefree scores 25 to down Vanderbilt, 100-66, to set up two-game homestand this week.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Arkansas dominated its way to a second straight win Sunday, beating Vanderbilt, 100-66, in Memorial Gymnasium.

The Hogs’ 100 points marked the first time the Hogs hit the century mark in a road game since 1991, when the Razorbacks hung 108 on Baylor.

The Razorbacks also snapped a 12-game losing streak in Nashville, winning in the Commodores’ gym for the first time since 2001.

The Hog attack was once again led by senior guard Alexis Tolefree, who put up a career-best 25 points against the Commodores on an ultra-efficient 9-of-14 clip from the field.

Sophomore guard Rokia Doumbia also turned in a career-best performance, posting her first-career double-double, going for 13 points while also snaring 10 rebounds.

Joining Tolefree and Doumbia in double-figures were Amber Ramirez (18) and Chelsea Dungee (12).

Turning point

A close game in the first quarter, Arkansas broke it wide open in the second, using a barrage of three-pointers to stretch the lead out to as much as 21 in the first half.

Arkansas went on a devastating 28-10 run in the second, getting contributions from Tolefree, Dungee, Ramirez and Erynn Barnum.

The Hogs came out of the halftime break even more locked in, outscoring the Commodores 39-16 in the third period.

It was the Hogs’ third 30-plus quarter of the season, and their 39 points in the period was the most in a single frame this season.

 Hogs highlights

• Tolefree scored 20-plus for the seventh time this year and for the ninth time in her career.

• Ramirez was perfect from the field against Vandy, going a perfect 6-of-6 from the field.

• Doumbia scored 13 points as part of her double-double, a career-high in points scored.

• The sophomore guard also drilled all three of her three-point attempts.

• Freshman center Destinee Oberg scored her first points as a Hog, going for four points. She also pulled down four rebounds.

Next time out

The Razorbacks return to Bud Walton Arena for a two-game homestand, kicking off against Georgia on Thursday.

The game will air on the SEC Network, with tip-off set for 6 p.m.
