1. There's something ironic about following a contest in which a student shoots to win 12 dozen Krispy Kreme donuts with Antone Davis coming out to midcourt to start the UT introductions. It is good to see the bog man back on campus and healthy and happy. 2. The more I see of Ohio State, the better I feel about my prediction that they will cut down the nets in New Orleans. Today's game at Wisconsin is exactly the kind of grinder they'll have to win to get the big prize. 3. The Adam Craig Band gave a tutorial on how to do the Anthem. That was understated acapella excellence. 4. Jordan McRae played his best game in a Tennessee uniform. The range of the level of his performance is staggering. 5. Anyone who wants to question Trae Golden's value to this team needs to watch the start of each half. Tennessee was utterly helpless without him on the floor. 6. As UT halftime entertainment goes, the Beale Street Flippers aren't half bad. They certainly get the crowd's attention. 7. I'm wondering if there had been a coaching change with the UT dance team. Tonight's halftime performance actually looked choreographed and modern. 8. Tennessee had a huge advantage in the frontcourt. They managed to exploit it just enough to help get a working margin in the second half. Georgia's posts are really poor. 9. Good to see that coaching at a school that is totally apathetic toward basketball hasn't doused Mark Fox's competitive fire. He's still right there with Tim Floyd and Larry Eustachy at the top of the list of coaches with the shortest fuse. Speaking of Fox's ejection, it appears Tennessee has taken Doug Shows to raise. It seems as if he's officiated every home game the last two seasons. 10. That's a good win for this team. It does make the loss in Athens even more frustrating. Now, it becomes imperative to take care of business Wednesday night against a South Carolina team that is just about to spit the bit. Win that one and NIT hopes are still alive.
