BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Jessica Jackson scored 25 points to lead Arkansas in an upset of No. 19 LSU 57-53 on Sunday.

Keira Peak added 10 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and four steals for Arkansas (18-9, 5-9 SEC).

LSU (18-9, 7-7 SEC) scored the first seven points of the game — including a 3-pointer by DaShawn Harden — en route to a 27-17 lead at the break.

But Arkansas stormed back in the second half. A 9-0 run early, with six coming from Jackson, cut the deficit to six. Jackson's trey at 7:42 tied it at 39, then she hit another a minute later to put Arkansas up 42-39 with 6:28 left.

Jackson nailed another trey at 2:42 and followed with a layup for a 54-50 lead and Arkansas held on for the mild upset.

Theresa Plaisance led LSU with 14 points and nine rebounds while Jeanne Kenney added 10.
