This time Arkansas (16-7, 4-4) will challenge Georgia (10-12, 1-7) Wednesday night at 7 p.m. in Athens.
Razorback freshman guard B.J. Young says it is time for the road woes to be over.
"We're really ready to get a road win," Young said. "That's one thing I still haven't done in college so far during the regular season is win outside of this gym. It makes me love this gym a lot more, but I think we're ready to go get a win on the road. We're not really too worried or frustrated, we're just ready to put in the work in right now so we can get it done."
"We get an opportunity to go on the road again and play a Georgia team that has had a lot of close games," Arkansas head coach Mike Anderson said. "And we have been in a lot of close games. We have been close…there is a thin line between winning and losing, and we have got to figure out what it takes. To me that's putting together 40 minutes.
"…We hopefully want to go on the road and play well and be able to finish a game," Anderson said later. "Play for 40 minutes as opposed to 30 or 35."
Georgia coach Mark Fox, whose team has played three of its last four games on the road, is happy to be home for a bit beginning with the Arkansas game
"We return home against Arkansas in a stretch where we play 4 out of 5 at home," Fox said. "Arkansas is an explosive team and certainly had some really good wins and continues to improve under a new coach and a new system and put themselves in position to go to postseason pay."
Fox thinks Arkansas will shed its road woes, but hopes that doesn't come too quick.
"I think it's just a matter of maturing," Fox said. "I think it will come. I just hope it doesn't come the middle of this week."
Fox lauded what he sees from Anderson's team.
"I think with any team you don't look for the fact if they are home or away, you just look for the fact they are a good team," Fox said. "They are a team has some good 3-point shooters and they have a lot of dynamic pieces and they are playing well together. What's impressive about it their team is they share the ball and they look like they enjoy playing with each other."
Fox doesn't believe his team – which is rebuilding after losing two players to the NBA and is averaging just 60 points per game – is where it needs to be even at Stegeman.
"We haven't been a very good (home) team yet," Fox said. "We are a team that is still not complete. We have had some moments where we played well. We haven't been able to string those together for long enough periods."
Georgia – who has lost its last four games to Ole Miss, Kentucky, at Auburn and at Tennessee - is led by freshman 6-5 freshman Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (14.0, 5.2).
"I think he's a dynamite player," Anderson said. "He's capable of putting up big numbers. He rebounds for them, he's their leading scorer…He's a very aggressive player. He wants to score, and I think that's why Coach Fox has him out there. He's a tough matchup. He's got good size, good athletic ability and can shoot the ball."
Caldwell-Pope joins 6-1 senior guard Gerald Robinson (13.5), 5-11 senior guard Dustin Ware (8.4), 6-9 sophomore Donte Williams (7.5, 5.4) and 6-7 sophomore Marcus Thornton (2.3, 4.7) in the starting line-up.
"I think it's going to be a Georgia team we face, they're going to leave everything out there on the line," Anderson said. "I think Coach Fox has done a good job with this bunch here."
Young said that Arkansas has to put in the work leading up to Wednesday.
"We're just going to come in here and try and give 100 percent effort to Coach Anderson and work hard, watch film, see things we did well, see things we did bad, and try and go out and correct it for the next game," Young said.
Young said that the Razorbacks - whose last two road losses have come by six points each at Alabama and LSU - are trying to get on the same page on the road.
"I think it's a total team thing ... Everybody is trying to get used to the road and do the same things we do on the road as we do here, try and play the same way on the road ... because we don't have everybody behind us or get some of the calls we might get at home... We're just trying to stick together and fight through some of these road tests and eventually pull out one."
Young further explained where his team's mindset is right now.
"We're always mad that we lost the game, but there's no frustration, because we know we've got the confidence to come out and get the next one," Young said. "Even though that hasn't happened yet, we feel we've been in these games. There are just window of opportunities, and we have to take advantage of those when we have a chance to take a lead or get further ahead."
Young thinks if Arkansas can get one road win, others will quickly follow.
"I think it's going to give our team a bunch of confidence when we get that first road win and get this monkey off our back," Anderson said. "...We ‘re ready to get this first road win, and understand and learn how to win on the road. Once we get that formula, I think it's all uphill from there."
