Friars Rally but Fall to Arkansas, 93-82
Mandy Saunders Notches 1,000th Career Point
PROVIDENCE, RI -- The Providence College women's basketball team fell to the University of Arkansas this evening, 93-82 in front of 756 fans in Alumni Hall.
Senior guard Mandy Saunders (Richmond, VA) scored a game high 21 points for the Friars as she chalked up her 1,000th career point at Providence. She became the 23rd player in Friar history to hit the mark. Saunders also added 10 assists and five boards. Freshman Monika Roberts (Pittsburg, CA) added 13 points and a team high nine boards.
The Friars shot .564 (31-55 FG) from the floor, but got outrebounded, 38-34.
The teams see-sawed the first 18 minutes of the game until Arkansas' Wendy Willlits hit her sixth three-pointer of the first half to give the Lady Razorbacks the edge for good, 35-34. Willits finished the game with 21 points hitting seven treys.
The Friars made a run late in the second half as junior Dana Simonelli hit two quick baskets to cut the gap, 67-57 with 7:16 remaining. In the next three minutes of the game, two PC starters left the game with injuries and the 'Backs reached a 16 point lead before closing out the game, 93-82.
Providence falls to 1-1 while Arkansas improves to 1-0.
