Varisia Raffington scored 19 points for the tide in a losing cause as The Alabama Womens basketball team fell short in their bid to win their second consecutive conference game of the week,which would have also given bama their 2nd conference win of the season eclipsing last year's SEC win total of one. as they dropped a 74-69 contest to the Arkansas Lady Razorbacks in Fayetteville AR. Sunday afternoon. This was a game in which the tide trailed almost the entire duration of the contest, however they managed to be able to stay within striking distance throughout the majority of the game. The tide played great defense and rebounded the basketball fairly well early which lead to some putbacks under the goal. Alabama went to halftime facing a 36-29 deficit.
In the second half the tide would get as close as 70-69 in the final minute of play when Varisia Raffington misfired on a 3 point attempt that would have given bama the lead and perhaps the victory. Alabama will play its final game of the regular season against rival SEC west foe Miss ST.@ Coleman Coliseum Tip off is slated for 2:00 p.m.
