Stan Heath Press Conference  Ole Miss
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas travels to Ole Miss on Saturday for a 4 p.m. game. The game is being televised by Fox Sports Net, which is Fox Sports Southwest in Arkansas. The Razorbacks lost at South Carolina on Wednesday, 64-52, while Ole Miss beat Auburn at home, 70-55. Arkansas is 14-7 overall and 2-6 in the SEC. The Rebels are 12-10 and 3-6. UA won this year’s first meeting, 69-46 in Fayetteville on Jan. 5.

“I know our team has a winning streak inside of it. It’s my job to pull it out of them. Right now, my strategy is tough love and encouragement. We’re all disappointed in how we played at South Carolina. We saw it coming but we couldn’t fight it off.

“In practice, as Mike Jones said, we were too monotone. We were working, but there weren’t a lot of guys pushing each other. We weren’t energetic. After the Kentucky game, we came out on Monday and I thought we were emotionally drained. I thought we would get some zip back on Tuesday, but we never recovered. We shortened our practice times and rested guys who had played extended minutes. It’s amazing the juice and energy we play with here. We have to bottle that up and take it on the road. We need to get some easy baskets. We need energy plays at Ole Miss and throughout the rest of the season.
