FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Mike Anderson appears ready to shake up Arkansas a bit.

The first-year Razorbacks coach says it's time for youth to stop being an excuse and for Arkansas to improve after two straight road losses. The Razorbacks (5-3) return home for the first time since Nov. 30 when they host Southeastern Louisiana on Saturday, the first of seven straight home games as they prepare for Southeastern Conference play.

Arkansas has shot just 33 percent in its last two games, losses at Connecticut and Oklahoma.

Starting point guard Julysses Nobles has particularly struggled on those outings, hitting just 2 of 11 shots. Anderson says it's time for the junior to start playing to his capability.
