FAYETTEVILLE – University of Arkansas head men’s basketball coach Mike Anderson met with the media on Thursday to discuss the Razorbacks upcoming game this week. Arkansas faces South Carolina this Saturday at 12:30 p.m. on the SEC Network.
"Now you get a chance to play against South Carolina on the road," Anderson said. "It’s a big ball game for us and big ball game for them. They had a tough loss at Missouri when they thought they had that game won."
Anderson spoke about his expectations for the Razorbacks (12-6, 3-2 SEC) in their matchup against the South Carolina Gamecocks (11-7, 1-4 SEC). He also spoke about the excellent play from the Razorback bench in the 96-70 win over Mississippi State and how Arkansas will have to rebound well against the Gamecocks.
Anderson then answered questions about the performances of Marshawn Powell and BJ Young, on what he expected to see from South Carolina and on the team’s confidence on the road.
