    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (Univ. of Ark.) - Emily Tubert and Gabriela Lopez represent the University of Arkansas women's golf team in their selection as two of the Top 50 Players to Watch announced by GolfDigest.com today.

    The duo lead the #8/10 Razorbacks into action as the season starts in early September.

    Arkansas tied for 13th place at last year's NCAA Championship and returns four of the five student-athletes who participated. Senior All-American and All-Southeastern Conference selection Tubert and senior Emma Lavy have helped Arkansas to three consecutive NCAA Championship appearances including a program-best tie for fifth place I 2011. Tubert returns as the team's leading scorer averaging 73.41 last year with two individual titles as a junior.

    All-SEC selections sophomores Lopez and Regina Plasencia also traveled to 12 events last season. Lopez was second on the team with a 73.77 stroke average and won the Westbrook Invitational as a freshman.

    The rest of the team includes a pair of redshirt freshmen in Olivia Lavy and Kayli Quinton and true freshman Summar Roachell, all of whom will challenge for traveling spots this year.

    The Razorback women's golf team opens the 2013-14 season Sept. 9-11 at the Dale McNamara NCAA Preview in Tulsa, Okla. Fans should visit ArkansasRazorbacks.com for additional information leading up to the event.
