GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Arkansas had a three-game winning streak snapped on Sunday afternoon, falling to Florida, 83-80, as Chelsea Dungee’s tying attempt at the buzzer didn’t go in.

A’Tyanna Gaulden and Amber Ramirez each had 17 points to pace the Razorbacks and Dungee had 2 for the game.

Turning point of game

Arkansas was nearly able to overcome what was once a 14-point deficit, shrinking the Gators’ lead to just one on a Ramirez three-pointer from the right corner.

A runner from Kiara Smith of the Gators stretched the lead back out to three.

After a stop, Dungee put up a three in transition that nearly went down. After a lengthy review, and a foul on the Hogs on the ensuing inbounds play, Dungee got a second look to tie it up after a steal, but it wouldn’t fall at the final buzzer.

Game highlights

• Gaulden’s 17 points set a new career high. She had an efficient afternoon, going 6-of-9 from the field.

• She also led the Hogs in assists with four.

• Ramirez scored 15+ for the third straight game.

• Dungee led the Hogs on the glass against the Gators, going for seven rebounds.

• Sophomore guard Rokia Doumbia also went for seven boards.
