1. It would be easy to comment on any of a myriad of shortcomings the Vols had tonight. I'll pass. It's a road win, it clinches a winning regular season record, and they're 8-6 in the SEC. The good outweighs the bad by a considerable margin. 2. That's as good a game as Cameron Tatum has played at Tennessee. His rebounding and defense were outstanding and he even made a shot in a road game. He has continued to show up and try to help the team, despite his shooting woes. That speaks well of his character. 3. Trae Golden turned the game in UT's favor by taking the offensive initiative. When he started attacking, Tennessee grabbed control of the game and never really relinquished it. 4. Conference realignment is the work of Satan. The fact that today is the last time we'll see Kansas and Missouri tear each other limb from limb for a conference regualr season title is proof of that. 5. Jarnell Stokes and Jeronne Maymon did not dominate the game tonight. They did, however, do enough offensively in the second half to help Golden and Jordan McRae hold the Gamecocks at bay. 6. Whoever takes over for Darrin Horn is inheriting a better roster than the record indicates. Bruce Ellington and Anthony Gill are quality SEC talents. With the right coach, they'll be vastly improved next year. 7. Dwight Miller didn't follow up his great Wednesday night performance with big numbers. He did defend his position and compete on the boards. I'd say the ice under Kenny Hall continues to thin. 8. Drexel went into Old Dominion and got a victory that means they are the outright Colonial champion. If they aren't a lock for the NCAA field regardless of what happens in the conference tournament, there's no justice in the selection process. 9. I'm always amazed when I catch a game on television how awful some of the SEC broadcasting crews are, especially on Fox Sports. I was glad to hear Dave Neal speak well of "Counzo Miller" and happy that Mike Glenn mentioned Tennessee's ability to "dominate in the paint" roughly 1,764 times. 10. This team has huge opportunities this week. As insane as it sounds, they could finish tied for 2nd in the league if they take care of business and get some help. From where they were when the calendar turned to 2012, that's just short of incredible.
