Lady Tigers Hang In against Arkansas But Fall 76-69

  The resurgent Memphis Lady Tigers host the Lady Backs of Arkansas at FedExForum Wednesday night.

The U of M women are off to their Best start in years at 5-and-2 under new Head Coach Melissa McFerrin...

  Arkansas uses relentless pressure defense to build a 9 point lead by halftime.

 They later worked it to 15 before the U of M women slowly began figuring out their press.

  Memphis cut its' turnovers down and its' shooting percentage went up and Arkansas' lead began to shrink.

  Paris Leonard, the former Wooddale High Star, explodes for 27 points as the Lady Tigers cut it to 4 with 2-minutes left...but that's as close as they could get.

  Arkansas puts it away at the foul line, beating the Lady Tigers 76-69.

Lady Tigers Back at FedExForum next Thursday December 11th against South Alabama.
