The SEC's worst rebounding team is about to meet the best. In two conference road games the Razorbacks have been outboarded by 36 while Tennessee is plus 33 in the rebounding column in a pair of conference games at home.
"It's ugly and it hurts. Everybody has to rebound together. Long rebounds, short rebounds, out of your arena rebounds. It's a mental part. You got to go want that ball. You got to go get it." says Coty Clarke
Scoring is the other big concern for the Hogs in Wednesday's road matchup with Tennessee.
Michael Qualls and Bobby Portis are combining for 24.6 points per game overall but in two conference road games that number drops to just 9 points per game combined.
"As well as Bobby's played this whole year you still have to realize that he's a freshman. He's going into atmospheres he's never experienced before. He'll get better. The whole season he's been slowly progressing." says Fred Gulley III
Snapping out of this road funk won't likely be easy but Mike Anderson says explaining how to do it is simple.
"Make shots. Make layups. Make free throws. We're an attacking team and I think when we do it and do it in the right way, good things take place for us." says Mike Anderson
The Hogs will need a win Wednesday night to avoid a 1-4 start in SEC play. Mike Irwin for the Razorback Nation,
