Postgame Quotes

Ole Miss Head Coach Andy Kennedy

ON RUNS IN THE GAME

"I thought early in the game we make a run, it was like 9-4, Marshall's about this close to getting a steal in the open four and hits a three. They go on a run, we go on a run, take a little break. They come back, we go on a run. At the start of the second half, I thought we came out, had a couple shots, had them on their heels. We were up by 13, we make run." 

ON BEING 4-0 IN THE SEC

"For us, I'm proud that our team continues to find a way to win. We've still got a lot of things which we can improve upon. It's the first time we've started 4-0 since '37. That actually has nothing to do with this group. They don't think about any of that stuff. It's just about us getting better and getting to the next game. Obviously, the spotlight's gotten a little brighter. We've had great support, two great crowds, a lot of energy in the building. That helps us, that truly does. My hope is that it will continue, and my hope is that our guys will continue to embrace the grind, because that's what it is. We're two weeks into a nine-week grind, so we've got to be ready for those."

ON JARVIS SUMMERS' STYLE

"He's very valuable, I don't think I took him out in the second half. I thought he was doing a good job of controlling the basketball. He had some turnovers once he got a little too deep at times, but seven assists, 14 points, made timely baskets for us. For us to shoot 40 percent, we were really struggling. We just manufactured enough baskets to win. I thought early, it seemed like we were going way too fast."

ON HOW LaDarius White's GAME HAS PROGRESSED

"He's our glue, I challenged him at the half. I've started Snoop because I think it helps us a number of ways. Defensively, it gives us a different weapon as opposed to catch-and-shoot. I think Snoop can do a better job of getting it in the basket, he's a bigger defender on the wing. I think it helps us with our rotation, gives us a little pop off the bench. Second half, I challenged Nick, and it's hard to challenge a guy unless you give him the opportunity to go do it. I thought when he hit the pull-up, he relaxed a little bit, hit the three and got us going a little bit. When he hit that first three, I could feel a collective sigh come from our bench."


 

 

Arkansas Head Coach Mike Anderson

OPENING STATEMENT

"I thought it was a bizarre game.  We are going to give the game ball to the lights.  I thought it had an effect on our team, not to take anything away from Ole Miss.  I thought they played well and did what they had to.  I thought it was a game of runs.  We made our run and were right with an opportunity to take the lead when they made a tremendous hustle play.  Henderson saved the ball and they get a three point shot out of it, but I can't say enough about our guys.  I thought our guys fought, scratched, and clawed to give ourselves a chance.  Just didn't make the plays going down the stretch and our inability to take care of the ball I thought it really cost us."

ON THE LIGHTS GOING OUT

"I've never been apart of a game where the lights go out, and it was weird.  I thought our guys were keyed in and it took away our energy and rhythm of everything that was taking place in the game."

ON OLE MISS

"I think they are older.  He (Andy Kennedy) has the right kids and Henderson adds another dimension to it.  I thought Jarvis Summers had an impact on the game because now you have to pay attention to Henderson.  Before, you didn't have to do that.  It spreads the floor and allows Murphy and Bucker to attack the backboard."
