Stan Heath Press Conference  No. 4 Florida
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas travels to Florida for a noon (central) game against the fourth-ranked Gators on Saturday. The game is televised by Jefferson-Pilot Sports. UA is 6-10 overall and 1-4 in the SEC while Florida is 17-2 and 6-0. Here is a partial transcript of head coach Stan Heath’s press conference.

“Anytime your sixth-leading scorer (Brett Nelson) was at one time one of your top scorers and he had 25 points (Tuesday vs. LSU) in your last game, it gives you an idea of how talented they are. We have to do a good job of shrinking the room on the court. Florida does a good job of spreading you out. They have good chemistry and outstanding leaders in Matt Bonner and Justin Hamilton. They aren’t so concerned about numbers, they’re more concerned about winning and their freshmen have come in and really blended in very well. I like what David Lee does for them. He does a lot of the dirty work that doesn’t get noticed. If I was voting for Freshman of the Year, I would vote for their guys (Matt Walsh and Anthony Roberson) one and two. They both make big shots and help them win games.

“Florida has done a good job of staying focused. I know they will be up for this game. Kentucky and Florida are the two hottest teams in our league right now and one reason why is because they play one game at a time.”
