Post-Game QuotesArkansas vs. Stephen F. AustinDec. 20, 2008

Arkansas head coach John Pelphrey:“We played better tonight but we are by no means where we need to be. We came out hardnosed, nasty, and tough. The team played well tonight but we need to come out and play consistently every night like we did tonight. We need to be committed to defense. Our defense got really good. Courtney (Fortson) was terrific.”

“I knew coming in here that (SFA) was a good team but I didn’t have to do anything to grab the attention of the players, mainly because they got to see what kind of team Stephen F. Austin was from the stands before we even played them. There were other things weighing on them too, considering what Stephen F. Austin did to Oklahoma last year, and what Oklahoma did to us. I thought our defense did an outstanding job especially the last seven and a half minutes.”

Stephen F. Austin head coach Danny Kaspar:“We did not play our best tonight. We saw a lot of fire in Arkansas. They would knock us down then we would get up, then (they would knock us) down again. Their defense was pretty good tonight, better actually than what I remembered it being.”

“No major league team wants to come in and be knocked off by an SEC team. They did a lot of damage to us and we did a lot of damage to ourselves. They outhustled us and they wanted it more than we did tonight.”
