BATON ROUGE, La. - Destiny Slocum scored 29 points, Chelsea Dungee added 20 more and No. 18 Arkansas rolled past LSU 74-64 for its third straight win.

Slocum was a perfect 6-for-6 shooting in the first half and finished 11 of 15 from the field with five 3-pointers. Dungee hit two from beyond the arc and made 8 of 11 free throws. She also turned the ball over six times as LSU forced 19 Razorback turnovers.

Makayla Daniels, Slocum and Dungee drained 3-pointers back-to-back-back as Arkansas (17-7, 7-6 Southeastern Conference) made its first three shots and led the entire game. LSU missed four of its first five and trailed by 10 after a quarter.

The Tigers, who trailed by as many as 22 after halftime, rallied to within eight, 72-64, on a Khayla Pointer 3-pointer off the fast break with 15 seconds left. LSU outscored Arkansas 18-14 in the final quarter as the Razorbacks were held to 3-of-9 shooting in the quarter; 0 of 4 from distance.

Pointer led LSU (8-11, 6-7) with 24 points and Jailin Cherry added 16 with nine rebounds. The Tigers, despite forcing 11 Arkansas turnovers, managed to get 11 points from them. Meanwhile, Arkansas scored 18 off as many LSU turnovers and had 12 steals to LSU's four.
