FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas plays host to Southeast Missouri State Tuesday at 7:05 p.m. in a game televised by ARSN. Arkansas is 4-1 and SEMO is 4-2. Following is a partial transcript of head coach Stan Heath’s press conference.
“This isn’t a game we can overlook. In the past, we’ve had trouble getting over losses. It took a couple of games. SEMO is a very good team. They’ve replaced some starters with some transfers. (Dainmon) Gonner is a very good player. He plays outside off the dribble and he can hit the three.
“Their guys aren’t as tall (as Illinois), but they have some weight. They do a good job cutting off their post players. They have good post players. I think we learned from ORU that there are a lot of good post players. Even if they aren’t as big as some others, they can still hurt you.
“We’re contemplating going with a smaller lineup and we’re contemplating going with a bigger lineup. We’re going without Vincent Hunter. He’s probably out until after Christmas.”
