1. The Bearden ROTC did a nice job with the colors. Good to see young people showing patriotism. 2. The first 15 minutes were undeniably putrid. The only highlight was a Fallon Smith sighting on press row. 3. Wearing Santa hats in public is the most played out cliche of the holiday season. You know who you are. Stop it. 4. J.P. Primm is a player. He's the only guy on Asheville's roster who would get SEC minutes. I'm shocked they used him as a decoy at the end of the game. 5. Trae Golden was pitiful for most of the game. To his credit, he made some essential free throws late. 6. For the love of God, please stop the annual Christmas routine by the majorettes. It's not entertainment, it's torture. 7. We saw the best and worst of Renaldo Woolridge in one night. He made shots and was totally lost defensively and handling the ball. 8. Jordan McRae started Christmas break early. That's his worst performance of the year. Cam Tatum, on the other hand, was huge in the second half. That's what you have to get out of your seniors. 9. UT's big men did a great job of exploiting their size and strength advantage in the second half. That was ultimately the difference in the game. 10. At the end of the day, it's a much needed win. Take it and get ready for another challenge Friday night against ETSU.
