Q: You're most known for your high-flying dunks. Which is your favorite ever?
A: The one that I got on SportsCenter (a two-handed slam on a fast break against Kentucky on Feb. 3 (2007) that tore the roof off the place). It was on our home court, and it was something I won't forget.
Q: You're quite the craze on YouTube. How often do you check the site to watch videos of yourself?
A: Actually, I don't ever go on YouTube. My Dad called me one time and said I'm on all these videos, but I personally don't go on there, and I don't even know how many (videos) there are.
Q: You were the No. 1 junior college player coming out of UA Fort Smith. What made you want to go to Arkansas?
A: I'm a hometown kid. I grew up in Arkansas watching Nolan Richardson and Corliss Williamson and all of those guys, and I just wanted to be a part of that.
Q: You guys play Florida on Saturday. Are you surprised the Gators have done so well against top SEC teams despite being so young?
A: I don't think so. Billy Donovan is a great coach, and he brought a great recruiting class in, and I think he's doing a great job.
Q: You guys are currently second in the SEC West at 4-2 and 15-5 overall. Can this team make a run at a national championship in your final year?
A: I think so. If we keep playing the way we are playing, playing defense the way we are and just coming out aggressive, I think we have a good chance. With any team in the nation, we can match up. We have big guys, we have small guys, we have everything.
