Ant­ley, of At­lanta, earned a Sec­ond-Team nod af­ter con­vert­ing 11 of 12 field goals this sea­son. He hit a sea­son-long 45-yard field goal at­tempt against Arkansas Tech.

On kick­offs, Ant­ley av­er­aged 60.8 yards per kick and recorded 23 touch­backs. He also earned AFCA All-Amer­i­can recognition af­ter the 2016 foot­ball sea­son.

This sea­son, Ant­ley has been named a Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Col­le­giate Di­rec­tor of Ath­let­ics Sec­ond-Team All-Re­gion kicker and a First-Team All-Great Amer­i­can Con­fer­ence se­lec­tion.

Dungee top scorer again, Razorbacks throw block party against Iowa St.

FAYET­TEVILLE — Arkansas’ Chelsea Dungee im­proved from scor­ing 27 points on Sun­day in a 91-82 loss to the Big 12’s Iowa State with 28 points on Tues­day in a 65-42 vic­tory against Ten­nessee Tech, of the Ohio Val­ley Con­fer­ence.

Coach Mike Neigh­bors’ Razorbacks (6-3) had the game in hand, 18-4, af­ter the first quar­ter and ex­tended the lead to 58-27 by the start of the fi­nal quar­ter and clear­ing the bench in the last 10 min­utes. Arkansas blocked a pro­gram record 13 shots in the game with five from start­ing cen­ter Kiara Wil­liams and four by re­serve cen­ter Macy Weaver.

“Hats off to Coach Neigh­bors,” said Ten­nessee Tech head coach Kim Rosa­mond. “We knew they could score but they de­fended re­ally well.

“The turnovers (21 to Arkansas’ nine) hurt us. We wanted to at­tack them in the paint but that didn’t work out too well for us. Kiara Wil­liams played very well i the paint. Their phys­i­cal­ness and speed just over­whelmed us.”

“I was sur­prised they kept com­ing in,” Wil­liams said. “But they drib­ble drive just like we do. Coach did re­mind me, ‘Don’t get too com­fort­able block­ing shots, be­cause that won’t carry over un­til the next game.’”

Arkansas blocked 13 shots and was only whis­tled for 12 fouls.

“If I had looked down there and we had more fouls than blocks, I wouldn’t feel that good,” Neigh­bors said. “Kiara was re­ally ac­tive early and then Macy late in the game.

“That’s a bunch of blocks, maybe the most I’ve ever been a part of. It’s not some­thing we ac­tively tried to do, but they shot only nine free throws. So, we’ll take that.”

Dungee, a sopho­more trans­fer from Ok­la­homa, scored her 28 Tues­day with­out a free throw at­tempt. She hit 4 hit of 6 threes among her 12 of 18 from the field against the Golden Ea­gles (5-3).

“I feel like I’ve got the hot hand right now,” said Dungee, who had to red­shirt last year as a trans­fer. “Just con­fi­dence from prac­tice. I shoot a lot in prac­tice and that’s where that con­fi­dence comes from.”

Con­fi­dent and “get­ting re­ally com­fort­able,” Neigh­bors said.

Arkansas will be the road team on Satur­day in Texas against Abi­lene Chris­tian (7-1), of the South­land Con­fer­ence.
