Arkansas' Kelsey Hatcher's 3-pointer with 13 seconds left in regulation forced overtime, and the Razorbacks outscored Tulsa 12-4 in the extra five minutes to capture a 64-56 victory at the Tulsa Convention Center Arena on Thursday.
Taleya Mayberry of Tulsa (0-3) led all scorers with 25 points, while Tiffani Couisnard had 13 points and 10 rebounds.
Arkansas (2-0) was led by Keira Peak's 17 points and 14 rebounds, followed by 14 points by Sarah Watkins.
"I'm pleased with how hard our kids played. We challenged them tonight to come out and play hard and that's what they did," said Tulsa head coach Matilda Mossman in a press release.
The Hurricane led for all but two minutes of the second half, with Arkansas' leads coming within the first two minutes of the half.
Tulsa took its first lead on its first basket of the second half with a jumper by Mayberry, the daughter of former Arkansas standout Lee Mayberry. Tulsa eventually tied the game at 33-33 and held that lead for more than 10 minutes.
Tulsa's next game is next Friday against Illinois at the Junkanoo Jam Tournament in Freeport, Bahamas.
