AUSTIN, Texas. - Arkansas Women's Basketball (18-14) had its season ended on Friday night in Frank Erwin Center, as the Hogs fell to Utah (21-11), 92-69.

The Utes shot the ball exceptionally well - they made 52 percent of their field goals in the game, while also hitting 48 percent of their triples, making 15 of them. They also dominated the Hogs on the boards, 52-35.

Amber Ramirez led the way in her final collegiate game, scoring 24 points in the loss. The point guard duo of Makayla Daniels and Samara Spencer had 18 points each. With her four points early, Daniels surpassed the 1,000-point mark, becoming the 31st Hog to ever do so.

Arkansas battled back in the second half after trailing by 17 at the break, cutting the lead to 10 with 5:46 left in the third quarter. Utah would respond to end the frame, though, pushing the lead back up to 19 by the close of the period.

The Razorbacks end the season with back-to-back tournament bids for the first time since the 2002-2003 season.
