Basketball Media Day Press Conference  Stan H
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas’ basketball team begins practice for the 2003 season with Friday’s Midnight Madness at Bud Walton Arena. Following is a partial transcript of Stan Heath’s media day press conference from Thursday, Oct. 10.

The team’s strength:

“We have depth. We can play two guys at every position, except point guard. We also have some versatility. We have several guys who can play in different spots. We have six older guys (seniors) and five freshmen with Michael Jones (sophomore) in the middle. I feel like we’ve bridged that gap with our workouts. We have a small margin for error. How we rebound and defend is important. This is not a rebuilding year. We’re playing to win right now. We’re playing for a championship.”

Players adjusting to a different style:

“Anytime you have change and do things differently, there’s going to be an adjustment period. Once they catch on, I believe they will be fine. We have intelligent guys and they will pick things up quickly.”
