The Razorbacks are coming off a big win Saturday and will try and make it two straight, hosting Missouri on Tuesday.
"My deal has always been no guts no glory." says Mike Anderson
The razorback say they are willing to spill their guts on the hardwood if thats what it takes to beat border rival Missouri on Tuesday night
"Very competitive. Everybody going to be playing with a chip on their shoulder and the team that brings the most energy will win" says JaCorey Williams
The two teams split a pare of game last season with both teams winning at home. At home is where the Razorbacks are at their best. In fact, the Hogs have won 25 of the last 26 games in Fayetteville.
"Its a challenge but a great opportunity for our guys to continue to take care of home,,take care of the home court." says Anderson
With Mike Anderson leaving as Missouri's head coach to come to Arkansas two years ago, there are plenty of story lines but one single letter towers above. Both teams need a "W".
"There has been a lot talked about and written but this is simply the next game on the schedule." says Anderson
"None of that matters to us.. we are trying to go someplace and we need the win and they are the next opponent." says Coty Clarke
Two other keys to victory for Arkansas would be matching Missouri in rebounding and limiting the Tigers free throw attempts. Two categories that have hurt the Hogs this season. All is all the showdown is set as Arkansas hosts Missouri with both teams fighting to relevant in the SEC race.
"We talk about how the games just keep getting bigger and that is for sure the case in this game for our basketball team." says Anderson
