1. It was obvious at the start that the events of the week had taken their toll on the fans. The first half was bereft of any energy from the crowd. 2. I really hope someone emerges to take primary ballhandling responsibilities from Josh Richardson. He deserves to play his natural position as a senior. 3. The more I see Kevin Punter, the more I like his game. He's fearless and aggressive. 4. The freshmen post players have meaningful potential. They are all athletic and active. 5. The press is still a work in progress. Players are still unsure where they need to be in a given situation. 6. The cumulative effect of said press was a major factor in the Vols pulling away. If pressure is working properly, it is the basketball equivalent of body shots in boxing. 7. Robert Hubbs is rapidly approaching a career crossroads. His lack of intensity was disturbing. 8. The Dominic Woodson Experiment is going to be fascinating to watch. He just doesn't have the body language of someone focused on a task. 9. There isn't much to brag about in SEC hoops right now. The league isn't grabbing many noteworthy wins so far. 10. The national media acting as if Cuonzo Martin was fired by UT is growing tiresome. The man simply left of his own accord.
