Community

Despite COVID-19, Slocum has taken time out of her busy schedule on several occasions to engage with fans of Arkansas Women’s Basketball virtually.

Competition

Slocum’s career is one of the more decorated ones in women’s college basketball right now. The redshirt senior guard has fit right into Head Coach Mike Neighbors’ up-tempo system at Arkansas, averaging 15.4 points per game and a team-high 3.7 assists per game through her first 12 games on the Hill. As a result, Slocum continues to rack up the national accolades, as the Meridian, Idaho native was once again named to the Wooden Award Watch List, the Naismith Player of the Year Watch List, and the Lieberman Watch List, which recognizes the best point guards in the nation.
