Arkansas Basketball Falls To Florida In Overtime

The Hogs definitely played better today than they did on Wednesday, However Saturday afternoon's game came down to the little things, like time management and free throws.
The Hogs definitely played better today than they did on Wednesday, However Saturday afternoon's game came down to the little things, like time management and free throws.

"We had our opportunities, whether it be at the free throw line or turning it over at the wrong time or getting key stops when we got to. But it wasn't because of lack of effort." says Head Coach Mike Anderson.

"You know, down two and they gave us an opportunity with missing a free throw, and the we were kind of able to come down and Scottie made a great shot to send it into overtime." adds Florida Head Coach Billy Donavan.

"You know, were going to go into practice and look at the film, you know, make sure that we execute and know the game situations." adds Senior Coty Clarke.

Again the little things playing a big factor in today's loss, we bring in Mike Irwin, Mike, what is your opinion when it comes to the reasons the Hogs fell short today?

A year ago Arkansas won games like this and I think they did it because they had a guy that took over games at the end BJ Young just refused to lose. And they don't have anyone like that yet. The guy I think could be that is Portis. Portis played better, but he basically disappeared at the end of regulation and certainly in overtime and that really hurt. He's got the potential, but somewhere on this team they have to find a guy that at the end of the game will take over and help you win it.

Another guy I think could play a huge role is Rashad Madden. He had such a great game today, he just needs to score when it counts at the end.

Madden had a great game, he didn't make a play at the end, he let Alandise Harris go in and try to take the shot.
