Stan Heath Press Conference  Mississippi Stat
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas plays host to Mississippi State in its final regular-season home game on Tuesday at 6 p.m. in a game nationally televised by ESPN. The Razorbacks are 18-9 overall and 6-8 in the SEC following Saturday’s 70-68 home victory over Tennessee. MSU is 20-8 overall and 8-6 in the SEC after beating Ole Miss in Starkville on Saturday, 71-68. Following is a partial transcript of head coach Stan Heath’s press conference.

“We’ve had some really good games with Mississippi State in Fayetteville. It came down to the wire and we won two years ago. Last year, we dug ourselves a hole early. Jonathon Modica got hot and we got back in it but they got the win. The first time we played this year, for the first 10 minutes of the game, we weren’t there and I think we were down 21-4. That’s a game we would like to forget.

“They are healthy now. Winsome Frazier is back. He’s a good defensive player and a good shooter, and he has a lot of speed. I’m amazed at how he’s been able to come back. He plays with a lot of intensity and emotion. They missed him. They are not only talented, they are also veterans. Lawrence Roberts is a senior. Shane Power, who I think is terrific and is very underrated, is a senior. Frazier, Ontario Harper and Marcus Campbell are all seniors. Those are five guys who have been around and had a lot of success.
