1. Evelyn Jack should sing the Anthem at every home game. By the time she was done, I was fired up and ready to go guard John Jenkins. 2. Great to see Brandon Wharton on the TBA floor again. No list of my favorite all time Vols would be complete without him. I hope Coach Martin took the oportunity to get in some early recruiting time with his son. 3. I have a newfound level of respect for Stephen Pearl. His decision to show up today and support his alma mater in a conspicuous manner speaks well of his character. 4. The great Arn Anderson is fond of saying that "Adversity introduces a man to himself." If that's the case, the members of this Tennessee team have every reason to be incredibly proud when they look in the mirror. 5. If that's Cam Tatum's final appearance in TBA, he went out in a blaze of glory. He played as good an all around game as he has in his entire 20 year career at UT. 6. Coach Martin won the game with his decision to reinsert Trae Golden in the first half, foul trouble be damned. If he leaves Golden on the bench in that situation, UT gets buried by halftime. Golden, despite being guarded for a good portion of the game by an NBA level defender, controlled the game and made sure Tennessee got good shots. 7. Kevin Stallings is a solid coach. That said, he's mismanaged this team. There's no way Jeff Taylor should go five minutes at a time without getting a shot. They also don't get Festus Ezeli nearly enough. 8. Jarnell Stokes and Jeronne Maymon owned the boards against a team blessed with quality post players. By winning the battles inside, Stokes and Maymon made sure Vanderbilt had to scratch and claw for every basket. 9. The crowd was outsanding. They were in their seats early and provided a legitimate homecourt advantage. That was no small contributor to the Tennessee victory. 10. I'm not going to worry about this team's postseason prospects right now. It's time to just enjoy what has been a brilliant run down the stretch by a flawed team. They aren't the most talented or successful team UT's had in recent years, but they've flat emptied their buckets the last two months. They should have the thanks of each and every Tennessee fan for that.
