FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas travels to No. 11 Mississippi State for a 2 p.m. non-televised game on Saturday. The Razorbacks are 13-3 overall and 1-2 in the SEC. MSU is 14-3 and 2-1. Following is a partial transcript of head coach Stan Heath’s press conference.
“Lawrence Roberts is a stud. Nobody has figured out a way to stop him. He has a lot in his package. Their guards do a good job of feeding him the ball in a great spot where he can catch it and make a move. Mississippi State is a very good rebounding team. We have to rebound and get back on defense.
“In our last game, we gave (Alabama) too many transition baskets. We also have to learn how to handle the emotional side of the game, and we were in a rush to get the first shot we could get, but we played well for 31 minutes.
