“The strength of their team is perimeter shooting from long range. We’re different. Our guards are big, tall and long. They are a very good shooting team, but if we can have our hands up, a lot of times that will lead to opportunities on offense.”
Playing in North Little Rock: “It’s a chance for Central Arkansas to see us play and hopefully we’ll get a nice, big crowd to help us.”
Defense: “We will have to switch on the perimeter, so we have to prepare our guys for all of the matchups. They are deadly from three-point range right now. As a team, they’re shooting 46 percent.
Inside matchup: “They can come in with tremendous size, too. The sizes are pretty much the same in the frontcourt. The difference is we have size in the backcourt. It’s size against speed. We’re going to play our game. We will make some adjustments, but we will do what has been successful for us.”
The series: “Except for last year, the games have gone right down to the wire. They basically have the same team they had from a couple of years ago. It’s been a healthy series. We haven’t been able to get over the top. We would like to pull the big upset if we can.”
The schedule: “I think our schedule has fit our team very well. We have grown with each game. Our schedule is what it is. It has helped our team.”
