She has stepped her game up another notch in SEC play, as she is averaging 22.5 points through two conference games, third in the league behind only Rhyne Howard and Jordan Lewis.

Slocum meanwhile, has gotten adjusted quickly to her new role on the Hill, excelling both on the ball and off the ball for Head Coach Mike Neighbors’ Hogs. She is averaging 15.4 points per game, good for second on the team and 15th in the SEC. The Oregon State transfer also leads Arkansas, and the SEC, in assists, dishing 44 of them so far this season. She’s really started to become a floor general for the Razorbacks recently, as she has had four or more assists in four of her last six games, including a six-assist showing against No. 13 Kentucky in the SEC Opener.
