Hmm…maybe upgrade me to Mildly Concerned about the Vols.

I saw some spurts tonight that looked like the Vols of the last month, but there were also large stretches of lackadaisical execution on both ends of the court.

It’s hard to be unhappy with any win at this point in the season, but that left me feeling wholly uninspired.

I guess I took a hit of the NegaVol juice tonight, but also worth noting…

The game next week against Florida is HUGE for final standing purposes, because here’s the current 1-6 for SEC seeding.

1. Auburn (10-2)
2. UT (9-4)
3. Florida (8-4)
4. Mizzou (8-5)
5. Bama (8-5)
6. Arkansas (7-6)

UT’s current record against the other members of the top 6? 0-4. There is still very much a scenario where UT stumbles a bit to the finish line and ends up 5th or 6th based on losing a bunch of tiebreakers.

So…win? K, great, thanks!


We need more of the Kentucky at Rupp kind of focus and effort. Lapses all over the place.. . When we were up by 10 with 4:27 in 1H (33-23), we didn’t score a FG and went 5-6 from the line.

But we played ball again for 8 min or so and had our largest lead of… Read more »

A throwaway stat from the AP recap worth keeping an eye on…

This was the 3rd straight game that UT has had a negative A:TO ratio. They’d only done it 3 for the season prior to that.

Whether that is a symptom of some larger underlying issue, I’m not sure, but the offensive execution has certainly fallen off (down to 36th in KenPom after being top 25-ish most of the year). The team struggles when the ball sticks on offense, and we need to get back to good ball movement on a more consistent basis.
