It’s been a long time since the Arkansas Razorbacks were regularly near the top of college basketball, but head coach Mike Anderson appears to be pleased with how things are trending.
Following a victory over the Austin Peay Governors on Friday night, Anderson explained where the growth on his roster is happening.
“I thought we saw some guys tonight, especially young guys, who were out there tonight when the game was on the line and they were out there making plays,” Anderson said via The AP. “Offensively, defensively, sharing the basketball. To me it’s a growth in our team and that’s what’s needed. This team here, what you see right now, by late January it will be a totally different team.”
The Arkansas Razorbacks do need to grow in real-time, as the roster features zero seniors.
With the victory, Arkansas improved to a solid 9-3 on the season, a record which includes a stellar win over the Indiana Hoosiers.
Up next for the Razorbacks is a tough test against the Texas A&M Aggies, as the SEC dockets awaits the program.
