1. UT got off to another dismal start tonight. They almost buried themselves in the first five minutes. 2. Beavis Wogan was in the the Channel 6 slot on press row. No Fallon Smith makes for a less than stellar evening. 3. There's no excuse for being beaten on the boards by a middling Atlantic Sun team. Kenny Hall and Jeronne Maymon have to dominate that level of opponent. 4. The Mike Tomlin doppleganger with the microphone has to go. This is D-I not And 1. 5. Cameron Tatum has now put together back to back big games. UT desperately needs that out of him every night. 6. That was Skylar McBee's best game in a Tennessee uniform. Without him, the Vols would have been dead in the water early in the second half. 7. Jordan McRae desrves a great deal of credit for coming into the game essentially cold and hitting two big free throws. He has matured immensely in his time at Tennessee. Now, he simply plays hard when he gets the opportunity. The sulking is a thing of the past. 8. This team just doesn't handle the ball competently. They don't pass, catch, or dribble it at a level that allows for any offensive continuity. That's why they almost lost a game shooting over 50% against a mediocre A-Sun team. 9. Trae Golden showed flashes of returning to his early season form. He was much more aggressive and confident in the last 10 minutes. Let's hope that's a preview of things to come. 10. UT is a step closer to getting back to break even. That's the only storyline that really matters. It's been a good week for the program. Two wins and the addition of Jarnell Stokes constitutes building momentum. Merry Christmas.
