Coach White is here. Says he thought they were really good defensively, led my Scottie Lewis. Says covering Mason Jones is no easy task he can score any way and can draw fouls.

White says that at one point in the first, two many of their misses resulted in easy points for Arkansas. Says their ability to guard and get stops down the stretch was the difference.

On Keyontae Johnson, White says his improvement beyond the arc has made life easier for him driving to the lane. Says he's a guy who can score on all three levels now.

Says his pace, feel for the game has improved greatly since last year.

On the questionable flop that turned into a tech, White says that was on him. Says the same instance happened early in the year where an opposing player was in the Gators huddle. White said look how disconnected we are.

So, essentially they listened to coach. White said to never let anyone in their huddle and they didn't.

White says the game has slowed down for Johnson. Says he's playing more minutes cause he has earned them.

His skill level has improved somewhat, in White's word, but the game has slowed down for him.

Despite only playing 12 minutes, White says Kerry Blackshear was still the loudest voice in the huddle. Did a great job helping the freshman bigs White says.

White all praise for Jason Jitoboh and his ball-screen defense.

White says this team needs leadership from the sophomores. Says over the last three or four games you see that jump with Johnson on both sides of the ball. Says Nembhard shows it in spurts. Says his laid-back nature makes it tough for him to always play like a 'pitbull' and when he does he's really good.
