FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas plays host to Auburn Saturday at 2:05 p.m. in a non-televised game. Arkansas (5-7, 0-1) is coming off a 61-51 loss at No. 4 Alabama. Auburn (12-2, 1-0) beat Vanderbilt at home on Wednesday, 62-59. Following is a partial transcript of head coach Stan Heath’s press conference.
“Auburn is scoring a lot of points. They have a lot of weapons and do a good job of attacking you one-on-one. Marquis Daniels and Marco Killingsworth give them a nice one-two punch. They pressure you, so we have to do a good job taking care of the ball. They have a good team, but I believe we’ve played a schedule that’s a little tougher than theirs and I hope that has prepared us for this. They aren’t a team that passes the ball around 10 or 11 times. Our perimeter defense will be tested along with our inside. Daniels is a scorer. He can do it in different ways. He rebounds, so he can hurt you on the offensive glass, he can hit the three-pointer and he can post up. We have to slow him down.”
