1. That's a terribly disappointing effort. UT looked unprepared and indifferent for most of the game. Alabama was the aggressor throughout and Tennessee never matched their intensity. 2. The wing play was an unmitigated diasaster. In particular, Cameron Tatum and Skylar McBee embarrassed themselves. They were both utterly worthless on both ends of the floor. 3. Their final numbers mask the fact that Jeronne Maymon and Jarnell Stokes failed to fuly exploit Alabama's patchwork frontcourt. Stokes appears to have hit the wall and Maymon's ballhandling was slipshod all day. 4. Trae Golden had as close to a good overall performance as anyone on the UT roster. He appeared to be the one Tennessee player who was fully focused and engaged today. 5. Today's game is evidence that there needs to be a considerable upgrade on the wing for this team to make progress next season. Coach Martin needs to take a long look at his roster and make some tough decisions. While it's been obvious all season another point guard is essential, it's become apparent the other perimeter positions need to be addressed, as well. 6. Wichita State is playing as well as anyone in America right now. If they aren't thrown off their game by the pressure of this group appearing in their first NCAA Tournament, they're perfectly capable of making a regional final. 7. New Mexico has emerged as the top dog in the Mountain West. That league is going to send three teams into the NCAA field that are perfectly capable of winning multiple games. 8. Initially, the student in Tuscaloosa with the giant picture of himself was creative and fun. Now that his friends have joined in to get their 15 minutes, it's annoying and stale. 9. I just can't bring myself to think a fast foodesque Mongolian Grill is a good concept. I'm betting Genghis Grill has a short corporate shelf life. 10. Tennessee still has an opportunity to have an extremely positive finish to the season. They need to forget about what might or might not be out there regarding postseason play and take care of the next three games. All of those are games UT should win. If they play well and do that, they'll go into the Vanderbilt game well positioned.
