    1. Excellent anthem by Grace Majors. Good to see that family getting completely reconnected with the Athletic Department.
    2. UT came out of the gate playing reasonably well. As soon as Trae Golden took a break, it completely fell apart.
    3. Kenny Hall's game is a complete wreck right now. I'm flabbergasted at how his game has regressed since he arrived on campus.
    4. Skylar McBee seems to have a much better understanding of why he's on the floor this season. He's there to take every open jumpshot that presents itself.
    5. Jordan McRae was good in spurts, but had stretches where he just floated around. He's got more to offer than what UT is getting out of him right now.
    6. The firefighters and KPD committed crimes against the sport of basketball at halftime. We appreciate that you guys help keep us safe, but save that for the Y or Cal Johnson Rec.
    7. Jeronne Maymon continues to work over guys he has a strength advantage against. Now, he gets to pick on some posts his size or bigger in Maui.
    8. Josh Richardson is going to be a very nice player for UT. His presence alone makes Coach Martin's first recruiting class a success.
    9. Dwight Miller showed more than he had previously. With Hall essentially MIA, he's going to get every opportunity to earn minutes.
    10. Now, it becomes serious business. Maui will give a good indication of where UT stacks up against teams that matter.

    Skylar needed someone to give him a long leash and basically tell him "he's the man now". He's gotten stronger too. The first two years his misses were very erratic, and his misses this year have been reasonable.

    I said this in my team preview, but if Maymon can be the CJ Black type of player -- 9 ppg, 7 rebounds, a few hustle plays, take up some space, be mean -- he will really contribute.

    One of McBee's misses tonight was as bad as you will ever see.

    That's an improvement over 3 a game.

    My goals for this team in Maui are very simple. Be competitive the first two days and don't get upset by Chaminade.

    I'd really like to see them put on a good showing against Duke, howver, I am quite terrified of what will happen when Golden comes out of the game. Guys are going to have to grow up quick.

    Get ready for "Tennessee should have hired Rick Byrd" after Tennessee plays Duke.

    The way UCLA is playing, don't be so sure that UT will play Chaminde if they lose the first two.

    I can handle that over "Pearl would have beaten them".

    I know shit is about to get "real," but I am satisfied that Martin is not contributing to the disaster that this season may be.

    Pretty sure Golden has legitimately improved.

    That is a great point. If Martin were a reboot of Wade Houston, this team would win about 4 games.
