Jackson’s 25 leads Arkansas’ comeback over Lady Vols 64-59
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) Jessica Jackson scored 25 points as Arkansas earned its second straight home win over a ranked opponent with a 64-59 defeat of No. 13 Tennessee on Thursday night.
The win is only the third in 29 games for the Razorbacks (7-10, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) against the Lady Vols (11-5, 2-2), and it comes after they trailed by 11 points at halftime.
Jackson was 7-of-18 shooting, including 3 of 7 on 3-pointers, as Arkansas followed last week's home win over No. 15 Texas A&M by outscoring Tennessee 43-27 in the second half to earn the win.
Devin Cosper added 11 points and Jordan Danberry 10 for the Razorbacks.
The loss is the second in the last three games for Tennessee, which was led by 14 points from Diamond DeShields. Mercedes Russell had 10 points and 11 rebounds.
