The Lady Bulldogs already have secured a first-round bye for next weekend¹s SEC Tournament in North Little Rock; however, Andy Landers is by no means resting comfortably.
³I think you always have to take care of your business,² Landers said. ³It¹s vanilla. It¹s not what people want to talk about, but I just think you continue to focus on the games that you play and let your performance take care of the things that it will take care of. ²
Landers looks for the Lady Razorbacks to present numerous challenges, most notably with their depth, defense and perimeter shooting
³They play a lot of people so they¹re going to stay fresh,² Landers said. ³That¹s obviously the opposite of what we do. We play very few people and hopefully stay fresh. Thanks goodness, we¹ve been able to maintain a high level of play with a short rotation. The things about Arkansas that concern me most are their defensive ability and the number of threes that they put up.²
³When up put up the number of threes that they put up and you shoot a good percentage, and they do shoot a good percentage, there¹s always the risk that they could shoot a great percentage. Should that happen, they¹re going to put a big number on the board that¹s going to be hard to match.²
