Senior forward Peyton Williams led the Wildcats, moving to tie for fourth in school history with her 26th career double-double with 19 points and 13 rebounds. Williams ranks 12th on the all-time rebounding list with 749.
Two other Wildcats joined Williams in scoring double figures — senior guard Angela Harris scored her season-high 16 points and redshirt freshman center Ayoka Lee scored 15 points. Lee also recorded a double-double with 14 rebounds, a career-high.
That didn’t match the great scoring performances of two Razorbacks; redshirt junior guard Chelsea Dungee led Arkansas with 32 points followed by senior guard Alexis Tolefree with 21 points.
Arkansas began the game with an early 11-4 lead in the first quarter. The Wildcats then called a timeout to make adjustments and came out strong to end the first quarter down 16-14.
The second quarter followed the same sequence. Arkansas got to a 30-19 lead, but Kansas State battled and cut the lead to four points to end the quarter to trailing 37-33.
The Wildcats came out of halftime by continuing their hot streak to take a narrow 42-41 lead with less than 7:00 left in the third quarter. The Razorbacks answered with a 10-0 run to retake the lead at 55-46. The third quarter ended with Arkansas ahead 61-50.
The Razorbacks ended up being too much for the Wildcats to handle in the fourth quarter as they got to their biggest lead of the game, 72-58.
In the end, the Wildcats fell to Arkansas 72-81.
