Stan Heath Press Conference  SEC Tournament
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas travels to Atlanta to take on Tennessee in the first round of the Southeastern Conference Tournament on Thursday. The Razorbacks are 18-11 overall while Tennessee is 13-16. The game tips off at 6:30 (central) and is televised by Jefferson-Pilot Sports. Following is a partial transcript from head coach Stan Heath’s press conference.

“I feel like we will play well on Thursday. We laid an egg in our last game. I’m frustrated, but it’s over. All we can do is regroup, and I think we will.

“Tennessee is a different team from the first time we played. Scotter (McFadgon) is back, so they’ve added him to Brandon Crump and Chris Lofton.

“The main thing is to go down there with a sense of urgency and emotion. This team does not like to lose. This is a new season in front of us and the players know it. We need to have renewed enthusiasm. We already know we can play with anybody in this league, now we need to prove we can win.

“The tournament is the next step for us. We have more wins, we have more conference wins, and we’ve made improvements offensively and defensively. The next step is to win a game in the SEC Tournament, which we haven’t done in a while.”
