FAYETTEVILLE - University of Arkansas head men's basketball coach Mike Anderson met with the media on Thursday to discuss the Razorbacks upcoming game against Vanderbilt, scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 9, at 12:30 p.m. on ESPN.
"Vanderbilt is a team we are getting ready to play for the second time," Anderson said. "They aren't the same team, and we aren't the same team. In conference play, they have been in every game. They have an opportunity to play us at home and it's going to be a challenge for our team. We are looking to build on our momentum over the last three games."
Anderson spoke about his expectations for the Razorbacks (14-8, 5-4 SEC) in their matchup against the Vanderbilt Commodores (8-13, 2-7 SEC). He also spoke about the different environment at Vanderbilt and how the team will have to adjust.
Anderson then answered questions about the performance of Michael Qualls against Florida and what he expects from Vanderbilt on Saturday. Anderson also talked about building momentum after the Razorbacks win over No. 2 Florida on Tuesday.
