"I thought we had a chance to beat them," Razorback head coach Tom Collen said. "Down the stretch they jumped in the zone and we didn't execute. We handled it well for stretches, but couldn't seem to get it done down the stretch."

"We didn't get bigheaded," said Collen. "Tennessee always finds a way to win down the stretch. They expect to win and didn't panic they just came out and kept playing."
"Arkansas outplayed us in the first half," Tennessee head coach Pat Summit said. "We have yet to be a 40-minute team this season. We were fortunate to win this game. The only reason we did was because of our play in the second half. This Arkansas team is getting better. Looking at them on tape, I knew it was going to be a battle."
