1. Unlike Vanderbilt football fans, I don't get orgasmic glee from moral victories. That said, tonight was a good performance by UT, 2. The defense was better than 77 points allowed would indicate. The Blue Devils made a bushel of contested shots. 3. The fact Tennessee didn't get buried when Trae Golden went to the bench with fouls early is encouraging going forward. That's a massive improvement over the first two games. 4. Jeronne Maymon put up a valiant fight on the boards. He does, however, need to scrap shooting the three. 5. Jordan McRae is slowly getting to the level he should be playing at now. Once he quits overruning the pace of the game, he'll be an offensive force. 6. Austin Rivers is going to be a scoring dynamo. Seth Curry and Andre Dawkins are going to get a whole bunch of open looks off Rivers' penetration. 7. I'd like to see the Plumlee family's grocery tab for the last 18 years. It has to be on par with the gross domestic product of a small South American country. 8. Kenny Hall showed a pulse late, but wasn't nearly productive enough. He has to play at a high level for Tennessee to really threaten high caliber opponents. 9. I really like what I saw out of Cam Tatum. He competed and looked as healthy as he's been in a long, long time. 10. It'll be intriguing to see how UT responds tomorrow. With Memphis being the opponent, Coach Martin shouldn't have any trouble getting his guys emotionally up to compete.
