FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas (7-13, 2-7) travels to South Carolina for a noon (central) game on Saturday. The Razorbacks are coming off Wednesday’s 70-62 home loss to Tennessee. South Carolina (9-11, 2-7) has won two straight.
“A key guy for South Carolina is Chuck Eidson. He directs their offense. He’s a good passer and has good range. This game is a good opportunity for us. I hope we can go on the road and get a win. We’ve had some ups and downs. One good thing about playing there is their arena (the Carolina Center) is supposed to be similar to Bud Walton Arena, so I hope we feel comfortable there. I think we’re due. We need to regroup and do the things necessary to win a game. We had some open shots against Tennessee. We just need to hit them.
“We’ve played okay in a few road games. We want to just hang in the game and hang in, and then try to make some plays down the stretch.”
