Stan Heath Press Conference  Jacksonville Sta
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas returns to action following the Christmas break when the Razorbacks play host to Jacksonville State Wednesday at 7:05 p.m. in a game televised by ARSN. UA played Jacksonville (Fla.) University last year. This is UA’s first meeting with Jacksonville State. Arkansas is 10-1 while JSU is 4-7. Following is a partial transcript of head coach Stan Heath’s press conference.

“We had a good practice on Sunday. Jacksonville State is a team that is not off to its best start. (Head coach) Mile Laplante has done a good job. (UA assistant) Darren Sorenson was there, so Mike is very familiar with us. He was at Auburn for five years before going to Jacksonville State. Their leading scorer, Walker Russell (15.1 ppg) is a kid I’ve watched a lot. He can play and he can score.

“We’re trying to get better at executing and taking care of the ball. We’re good at taking the ball away, but we’ve been generous ourselves so we have to get better at that.
