Up Next Flights for Razorbacks in SEC Home Series

The defensive effort in the opener was Arkansas’ best all year, as the Razorbacks totaled a season-high 17 team blocks, the most in a game since 2015. Graduate midfielder Tatum Shipes had two solos and 12 assists for a new career high. of 14, which is tied for third in Arkansas’ single-game metric, and the most blocks in a game for a Hog since 2005. On Saturday, the Hogs fought hard in five sets, and despite the loss, the junior Taylor Head reached an offensive milestone with 23 kills, a new career high. She also had a team-high 12 digs for a double-double and hit .395.
