• Tennessee is playing its 102nd season of varsity basketball and its sixth season under head coach Bruce Pearl. The Vols must replace 49 percent of last year’s scoring, and 41 percent of the roster is new. • The Volunteers and Belmont are playing in the second game of the Dick’s Sporting Goods NIT Season-Tip-Off South Regional doubleheader. Game one features Arkansas State and Missouri State. • Regardless of its result against Belmont, Tennessee will play in the 7 p.m. ET game on Wednesday. • The team that wins both its games in the South Regional at Thompson-Boling Arena will advance to the semifinal round at Madison Square Garden in New York City Nov. 24-26. In addition to UT, the other three regional hosts in the NIT Season Tip-Off are UCLA, Villanova and Wake Forest. • Tennessee previously participated in the NIT Season Tip-Off in 1992 and 2006. The Vols are 3-3 alltime in the event. See Page 2 for details. • The first NIT Season Tip-Off, known then as the BIG Apple NIT, was played in November 1985. Fourteam mini-tournaments were played in Hartford, Cincinnati, Houston and Denver. The four winners advanced to Madison Square Garden for the semifinals and championship game. Duke won the title. • The Vols’ roster features 10 returning lettermen and five scholarship newcomers. Returning starters are junior guard Scotty Hopson and senior center Brian Williams. • Tennessee was picked by the media to finish fourth in the SEC Eastern Division. Florida was picked to win the East (and the overall league title), while Mississippi State was the media’s preseason pick to win the West. • The Vols’ top returning scorer, Scotty Hopson was named to the media’s preseason All-SEC first team and was a second-team selection on the SEC head coaches’ preseason All-SEC team. • Vols freshman Tobias Harris scored a team-high 18 points in his college debut Friday vs. Chattanooga. No other Vol has scored more points in his UT debut during the Pearl era.

VOLUNTEERS BASKETBALL

Tennessee Trends • Tennessee has an all-time record of 1,472-930-2 in its 102nd season of varsity basketball. • In all nine of his seasons as a Division I head coach, Bruce Pearl’s teams have won at least 10 games in conference play. • Bruce Pearl is 22-16 vs. ranked teams at UT. • UT is 72-6 (.923) when scoring 80 or more points under the direction of Bruce Pearl. • UT is 56-4 (.933) during the Pearl era when it holds opponents to 40 percent shooting or worse.

Noting Belmont The Vols actually face Belmont twice during the regular season, with the Bruins returning to Knoxville Dec. 23 ... The Bruins are led by veteran head coach Rick Byrd, who is a two-time graduate of the University of Tennessee (1976 and 1977) ... Byrd— who once served as a student assistant coach at UT under the legendary Ray Mears—recently guided Belmont to three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances and a share of three A-Sun regularseason titles in the past five years ... Byrd is a native of Knoxville and attended South Doyle High School ... Belmont’s roster includes redshirt freshman forward Blake Jenkins, who is the son of former Vols letterman Fred Jenkins (1984-87) ... Blake is a graduate of Knoxville’s Bearden High School, and Fred is fifth on Tennessee’s career steals list (177) and remains the only player ever to lead the Vols in steals for four straight seasons ... Rick Byrd’s father, Ben, covered the Vols for several years for the Knoxville Journal and even authored a book (The Basketball Vols) covering the history of Tennessee basketball ... Leonard Butts, sports editor for the Maryville Daily Times who regularly covers the Vols, is a brother-in-law of the Belmont head coach.

The Belmont Series The Vols lead the all-time series with Belmont 2-0, dating to 2004 ... Tennessee never faced Belmont prior to the Pearl era (Belmont was an NAIA school until it became an NCAA Division I member in 1996) ... Both previous meetings took place in ThompsonBoling Arena ... On Dec. 20, 2004, it was a onepossession game inside off two minutes before UT pulled away to post a 77-68 victory ... An in-depth recap of the 2008-09 meeting can be found on this page ... The Vols’ average margin of victory against Belmont is 5.5 points (78.0 ppg to 72.5 ppg). Last Clash vs. Belmont Tyler Smith scored a team-high 23 points with eight rebounds and four assists as the Volunteers notched a hard-fought win over Belmont on Dec. 20, 2008 ... Vols point guard Bobby Maze added 13 points, including a big 3-pointer with 1:45 remaining to put UT up 78-74 ... A layup and free throw by Bruins guard Alex Renfroe pulled Belmont to within one, 78-77, with eight seconds left in the game ... After a free throw by Maze one second later, Renfroe earned a trip to the foul line with three seconds on the clock and a chance to send the game to overtime, but he could not convert ... Renfroe led the Bruins with 30 points in 31 minutes ... The game featured eight ties and six lead changes ... Stats of current Vols: Hopson had 10 points, three assists; Woolridge had nine points (three 3-pointers); Tatum had six points, four rebounds; Williams had five points, nine rebounds, two blocks. Up Next: Arkansas State or Missouri State The winners and losers from each game of Tuesday’s NIT Season Tip-Off South Regional doubleheader will face one another on Wednesday ...

VOLUNTEERS BASKETBALL

Vols Ranked In 20 Straight AP Polls Tennessee has been ranked in 20 consecutive AP polls dating back the 2009-10 preseason poll ... It’s the second longest streak of its kind during the Bruce Pearl era, trailing a period of 32 straight poll appearances from 2007-09 ... Last season, only nine teams—Kansas, Kentucky, Duke, Purdue, West Virginia, Michigan State, Villanova, Georgetown and Tennessee—went the entire season without failing to appear in the AP top 25. Prowess In The Paint In Tennessee’s season-opening win over Chattanooga last Friday, the Vols outscored the Mocs 36-8 in the paint.

Impressive Debut For Harris True freshman Tobias Harris dropped a seemingly effortless 18 points on Chattanooga during his collegiate debut Friday at Thompson-Boling Arena ... Harris led the Vols in scoring, minutes (26) and field goals made (7) while shooting 7-of-11 from the floor and draining his only 3-point attempt during Tennessee’s 20-point win ... Harris also added five rebounds and an assist to his stellar performance ... His 18-point Tennessee debut surpassed that of any current Vol, any Vol during the Pearl era and even former UT All-Americas Allan Houston (17) and Ron Slay (17). Can UT Bench Run Deep Once Again? Last season, Tennessee’s bench outscored the opponents’ bench by 10 points per game (22.7 to 12.7) ... UT’s non-starters scored in double digits 35 times last year, and nine different Vols averaged at least 13.0 minutes played per game ... Six different Vols scored off the UT bench in the opener against Chattanooga, combining for 27 points (and 24 rebounds).

Lots Of Length This Year With an average height of 6-5, this year’s Tennessee roster boasts great length once again ... A total of 10 players—or 64.8 percent of the team—is 6-5 or taller ... Only point guard Melvin Goins, at 5-11, is less than 6-feet-tall ... Impressively, five Vols are 6-8 or taller, with center Brian Williams checking in at a team-high 6-10. Tennessee Approaching 1,500th All-Time Win With 1,222 wins to the program’s credit, Tennessee needs just 28 wins to reach 1,500 all-time victories, dating to the inaugural 1908-09 season.

Tough Break For Bone Senior guard Josh Bone sustained a fractured left wrist during the Vols’ exhibition win over Brevard Nov. 3 ... Dr. Robert Ivy, of Knoxville Orthopedic Clinic, said Bone is expected to be sidelined for at least eight weeks ... As a junior walk-on last season, the Nashville, Tenn., native played an important role in several Tennessee victories, most notably wins over Ole Miss and Ohio in the NCAA Tournament ... He was placed on scholarship by head coach Bruce Pearl this past summer.

Stong National Television Presence Tennessee will play a minimum of 17 nationally televised games during just the regular season (CBS, ESPN, ESPNU or ESPN2) ... And if the Vols win their two regional games in the NIT Season Tip-Off, they will play two more nationally televised games at New York’s famous Madison Square Garden. ESPN’s College GameDay Returns For Historic Men’s/Women’s Doubleheader UT’s meteoric rise in prominence under coach Bruce Pearl continues this season, as ESPN announced in August that the Volunteers will be featured in one of its popular College GameDay Driven by State Farm® matchups for the fourth straight season ... This season’s GameDay broadcast will precede the franchise’s first-ever same-school doubleheader ... The Vols host the Commodores Jan. 15 at noon ET, and then the Lady Vols, led by coaching icon Pat Summitt, will play the Vanderbilt women at 8 p.m. ET ... This marks the second time in three years that College GameDay will broadcast live from Thompson-Boling Arena ... And with North Carolina and UCLA not taking part in GameDay matchups this season, Tennessee now owns the nation’s longest active streak of GameDay appearances (four).

Pearl Predicts Physicality, Bone Concurs Vols head coach Bruce Pearl has mentioned multiple times this preseason that this is his most physical team at Tennessee ... According to senior guard Josh Bone: “We put a big emphasis on being more physical this year. Defense will be a big key to how far we go. Judging by our early workouts, we’re going to apply a lot of ball pressure on every position on the floor. It’s not going to be easy for our opponents. I know I wouldn’t want to be on the other team having to play against us this year.”

Four Former Vols Selected in D-League Draft Four former Vols were selected in the 2010 NBA Developmental League Draft on Nov. 1, including guard Chris Lofton (2005-08), who was taken with the sixth overall pick by the Iowa Energy, the NBA minor-league affiliate of the Chicago Bulls and Phoenix Suns ... Guard JaJuan Smith (2005-08) was drafted in the sixth round (94th overall) by the Maine Red Claws, the affiliate of the Boston Celtics and Charlotte Bobcats ... Point guard Bobby Maze joins Lofton on the Energy roster, as Maze was picked in the seventh round (102nd overall) ... And Scooter McFadgon heard his name called in the eighth round (115th overall) by the Austin Toros, who are affiliated with the San Antonio Spurs.

Full-Time Coaching Staff Intact For Fifth Straight Season Bruce Pearl’s full-time coaching staff, which includes associate head coach Tony Jones and assistants Steve Forbes and Jason Shay, is in its fifth season completely intact ... The group has never failed to lead the Vols to 20 wins or a berth in the NCAA Tournament ... Director of Basketball Operations Ken Johnson is in his sixth season on staff ... Mark Pancratz, who played for Pearl at UW-Milwaukee, is in his fifth season at UT and his second in the role of “assistant to the head coach” ... Former Appalachian State head coach Houston Fancher rounds out the Vols’ full-time staff at the position of “coordinator of video scouting” ... Former Coastal Carolina letterman Logan Johnson joined the staff prior to this season as a graduate student manager ... Johnson’s older brother, Blake, works in the UT athletic department as an associate director for development. Fields Could Challenge School Blocks Records Senior forward John Fields, who enrolled at UT this summer after earning his degree from UNC Wilmington last spring (and is thus eligible immediately without having to sit out a year), could challenge Tennessee’s single-game and single-season blocked-shot records ... Fields, who played his first two collegiate seasons at East Carolina, ranks second on ECU’s career blocks list with 104 ... Last year at UNCW, he set a school record for blocks in a season with 59 ... The UT single-game record is six blocks (five times by four different Vols), while C.J. Black holds the single-season record with 73 in 1997-98. Vols Must Wait For Maymon’s Debut Sophomore forward Jeronne Maymon (pronounced: jur-ON MAY-min) transferred to UT from Marquette during the holiday break last season ... To fulfill the NCAA’s transfer residency requirements, the 6-7, 258-pound Maymon has to wait until Fall 2010 semester grades have been posted before he can take the court with the Vols ... A native of Madison, Wis., Maymon will add depth and toughness to the UT frontcourt.

Vols Part Of Loaded 2011 Maui Field The Vols will make their second appearance at the EA Sports Maui Invitational next season ... Along with the perennial tournament host school, Chaminade, the 2011 field includes Duke, Georgetown, Kansas, Memphis, Michigan, Tennessee and UCLA ... Four newly-added Division I mainland tournament teams will be announced at a later date ... The Vols previously competed in the Maui Invitational in 2004, finishing fourth ... And as an assistant coach at Iowa, Bruce Pearl helped lead the Hawkeyes to the 1987 Maui title, with wins over Stanford, Kansas and Villanova. High-Percentage Hall Forward Kenny Hall (did not dress during exhibition season; sore foot) led the Vols in field-goal percentage as a freshman last season, shooting .578 (52-of-90) from the field—and .617 (29-of-47) in regular-season SEC play ... He ranked third on the team in dunks with 31 ... That means 59.6 percent of Hall’s field goals last season were slam dunks; that’s as “high-percentage” as it gets. UT Leads SEC In Wins Since 2005-06 Tennessee’s 57 SEC wins since the 2005-06 season are the most in the conference over that period ... The Vols are the only SEC squad to record double figure league wins in each of the last five years (regular season). School Tennessee Kentucky Florida Vanderbilt Miss. State LSU

Tennessee Earns Fifth-Straight 20-Win Season Last season, Bruce Pearl’s Volunteers logged 20 wins for the fifth time in his five-year tenure on Rocky Top ... Tennessee now has 23 all-time 20-win seasons to date ... In 18 full seasons as a college head coach, Pearl has now led his team to at least 20 wins 17 times ... That’s darn good. Volunteers Boast The SEC’s Longest Active Streak Of NCAA Tournament Bids The Vols have the longest active NCAA Tournament streak in the Southeastern Conference, earning their fifth consecutive bid under coach Bruce Pearl last season... This year, Tennessee is looking to break its longest NCAA Tournament streak of five seasons (1979-83 and 2006-10). Numerous Degrees Within Reach According to team academic counselor Kelly Brock, five current Vols are on pace to earn their degree by the conclusion of the 2010-11 academic year ... Those players are Josh Bone, Melvin Goins, Michael Hubert, Steven Pearl and Brian Williams ... To date, every single Vol who has played four seasons under Bruce Pearl has left UT with his degree.

Defense Was Key Last Season The Vols found a way to win with tenacious defense last season, as UT ranked in the top 30 among NCAA Division I teams in 3-point field-goal defense (13th, .297), field-goal defense (21st, .396) and turnover margin (30th, 2.9). Vols Among Nation’s “Most Valuable” Programs In the spring of 2010, the Tennessee men’s basketball program was included on Forbes.com’s list of the 20 “most valuable” college basketball programs in the country ... The figures showed UT hoops with a value of $14.1 million and a profit of $8.6 million in 2009-10. NIT Season Tip-Off To Use “Experimental Arc” In some men’s multi-team events, such as the NIT Season Tip-Off, a “restricted area” arc located two feet from the center of the basket will be placed in the lane ... This “experimental rule” is an extension of last year’s rules change that made it illegal for a secondary defender to take a charge underneath the basket ... By placing the arc on the court, officials, players and coaches will have a visual aid to determine the proper positioning by a defender to draw a charge ... If a player’s foot is touching or inside the arc, officials have been instructed not to call a charge.

Pearl Has Led UT To Three East Division Titles Despite playing in a division that boasts the NCAA’s all-time winningest program (Kentucky) and a Florida program that claimed two recent national championships, UT has won three SEC East crowns under sixth-year head coach Bruce Pearl ... The Vols won the East in 2006, 2008 and 2009. Pressure Defense Tennessee’s pressure defense has made the simple act of inbounding the ball a headache for its opponents ... Since 2006-07 season (142 games), UT has forced 380 turnovers on inbounds plays ... During that span, the Vols’ inbounds pressure has caused: • 78 timeouts to be called • 38 five-second calls • Coppin State (11/19/06) committed the highest number of turnovers on inbounds plays (13) during the last four years.

OUTLIVE: Round 3

The Tennessee basketball program’s OUTLIVE initiative has raised close to $255,000 for cancer research and prevention education since its inception during the 2008-09 season ... So far, OUTLIVE has helped the UT Medical Center Cancer Institute provide more than 23,000 cancer screenings throughout East Tennessee .... The highly successful OUTLIVE initiative was the idea of former graduate manager Brooks Savage (now a full-time hoops staffer at Tulane), who was inspired to action after witnessing the impact cancer had on the UT basketball team (Bruce Pearl’s mother is a cancer survivor; former Vol Chris Lofton quietly and courageously underwent treatment for testicular cancer during his senior season in 2007-08) ... Bruce and Brandy Pearl have a goal to help raise $1 million for the OUTLIVE program over five years, and the couple is hosting an “Evening In Orange” fundraising event in April that is expected to raise more than $1 million in just that one night alone ... Much of those proceeds will go toward the expansion, renovation and construction of the facilities at the UTMC Cancer Institute ... Tennessee throttled Florida 79-63 in the inaugural OUTLIVE game in January 2009 before shocking second-ranked Kentucky 74-65 in last season’s OUTLIVE contest in February ... This season’s OUTLIVE game is the Feb. 19 clash with Georgia.

(Singing) Voice Of The Vols: Jacqui Pearl Tennessee basketball home games literally are a family affair, with Bruce Pearl’s two oldest children, Jacqui and Steven, playing an active role ... While Steven suits up as a senior forward for the Vols, Jacqui is well known among the UT faithful for her outstanding singing voice ... Since Bruce Pearl took over the UT program in 2005-06, Jacqui has sung The National Anthem at 29 home basketball games and the Vols are 23-6 (.793) in those contests ... Jacqui typically takes the mic for the home-opener each season as well as a few “big games” along the way ... She has sung prior to wins over teams such as Kansas, Florida, Memphis, Ohio State, Temple, Kentucky and Vanderbilt. Hamilton Named to Div. I-A Athletic Directors Association Executive Committee At the September meeting of the Division I-A Athletic Directors Association, Tennessee athletics director Mike Hamilton was named to the Executive Committee of the organization ...

Hamilton is serving as the representative from the SEC. Vols Taking The Court In New, State-Of-The-Art adidas Uniforms This Season Tennessee is one of 11 programs this season that is unveiling the lightest and most technologically advanced college basketball uniforms ever ... Designed and developed by adidas, the uniforms are 30 percent lighter and dry twice as fast as previous uniforms to help enhance the Vols’ performance by keeping players cooler, drier and more comfortable on the court ... Made from 60 percent recycled materials, the uniforms feature adidas’ Formotion technology, which reduces seams, decreases friction between the garment and the player’s skin and optimizes the player’s natural movement through specially constructed material ... adidas reduced uniform weight and increased player comfort by switching front and back numbers from heavier, dense materials to a more breathable mesh ... The jersey moves heat and sweat away from the body through a combination of moisture management materials, ventilation channels and three dimensional garments, helping the uniform dry twice as quickly ... All 30 NBA teams also will wear Revolution 30 jerseys this season featuring similar adidas technology.

Legends In The Rafters Four Tennessee basketball legends are memorialized with banners in the Thompson-Boling Arena rafters ... The UT men’s basketball program had never retired a jersey prior to the 2006-07 season, but after nearly 100 years of hardwood history, Bernard King (1975-77) was the first player to earn that distinguished honor ... King’s No. 53 jersey was officially retired during a halftime ceremony at the Feb. 13, 2007, home game against Kentucky (UT won 89-85) ... During that same ceremony, banners honoring longtime head coach Ray Mears (1962-77) and beloved radio “Voice of the Vols” John Ward (1964-99) also were unveiled ... Then on March 2, 2008, Ernie Grunfeld (1974-77) became the second UT player to receive the ultimate honor, when his No. 22 jersey was unveiled in the rafters during halftime of Tennessee’s 63-60 victory over Kentucky.

Unbelievable Increase In Attendance Tennessee’s average home attendance has increased by 6,943 fans per game since Bruce Pearl’s arrival on Rocky Top ... Tennessee’s increase in attendance is higher than the average attendance of more than 200 Division I programs, including teams from the SEC, ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Pac 10, Conference USA, WAC, Mountain West and Missouri Valley conferences ... Tennessee ranked fifth nationally home attendance in Pearl’s first year at UT (2005-06) and has ranked fourth each year since.

Tennessee Stands Alone Tennessee is the only Division I school ever to rank in the top five nationally in attendance for football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball in the same year ... UT accomplished that feat for the seventh time in 2009-10. Tennessee Fourth In The Nation In Attendance For Fourth Straight Year Tennessee finished last season ranked fourth nationally in average home attendance for the fourth consecutive year ... The Vols have finished in the top five nationally for five straight years ... Below is a look at 2009-10’s attendance leaders: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Home Crowds of 20,000 Nothing New For Vols Tennessee has played in front of 41 home crowds of 20,000 or larger during the Bruce Pearl era ... The crowd of 22,326 for the 2009 Gonzaga game marked the largest at ThompsonBoling Arena since capacity was reduced from 24,535 to 21,678 prior to the 2007-08 season ... The Vols drew 20,613 fans for their season-opening win against Chattanooga Nov. 12.

The Volunteers At Thompson-Boling Arena Thompson-Boling Arena is hosting its 24th season in 2010-11 ... The Vols have won nearly 75 percent of their games in Thompson-Boling Arena and have ranked in the top 10 nationally in attendance 11 times, including an active streak of five consecutive seasons in which UT has ranked in the top five. • Tennessee is 271-92 (.746) in 23 seasons in Thompson-Boling Arena. • Since the 1998 season, the Vols are 171-33 (.837) in Thompson-Boling Arena. • The Vols are 80-24 against SEC teams at home over the last 11 seasons. • Tennessee has won 27 of its last 31 SEC games at Thompson-Boling Arena. • UT has won 98 of its last 107 home games against non-conference opponents. • UT is 37-2 in home games against non-conference opponents under Bruce Pearl. • Tennessee finished both the 2006-07 and 2007-08 seasons with a 16-0 home record. • This is the third straight season in which Sporting News has tabbed Thompson-Boling Arena the “best homecourt advantage” in the Southeastern Conference.

Vols Building New Home Win Streak The Vols own a current six-game home win streak ... After posting back-to-back 16-0 home records in 2006-07 and 2007-08, the Vols turned in an uncharacteristic 10-5 mark at Thompson-Boling Arena in 2008-09 before going 15-1 last year ... Now in his sixth season at UT, Bruce Pearl is 71-8 at ThompsonBoling Arena. Vols Enjoying World-Class Facilities The University of Tennessee invested more than $35 million into its basketball facilities between the end of the 2006-07 campaign and the start of 200708 ... During that eight-month period, UT added a basketball-only practice facility and began the first phase of renovations to Thompson-Boling Arena ... The $19 million first phase of renovations included the addition of 32 luxury suites that are located in the existing north balcony, a loge area just below the luxury suites that includes 166 side court seats, new seats for the entire arena, a $3 million centerhung scoreboard and concourse refurbishments, such as graphics and other amenities ... The renovations took Thompson-Boling’s capacity down from 24,535 to 21,678 ... The Vols’ new state-of-the-art basketball practice facility, Pratt Pavilion, houses two full-size gymnasiums, one for each of the men’s and women’s basketball teams, as well as an athletic training room, weight room and film-study room ... Prior to last season, a pedestrian bridge was constructed leading from the G-10 parking garage to the arena, an elevator was added at the arena’s northwest end as a customer service amenity and new exterior signage was installed on the building’s facade ... The UT athletics department is now renovating the men’s and women’s basketball offices at the arena in, creating a new and impressive “front door” for the basketball programs.

Noting Golden • Was perfect from the field (3-for-3) and the free throw line (2-for-2) while scoring eight points in his collegiate debut vs. Chattanooga (11/12/10). • Averaged 6.0 points and 3.0 assists during exhibition play while shooting a team-best .833 (5-for-6) at the free-throw line. • While he shot just 3-for-8 from the floor in UT’s exhibition win over Brevard, he finished with 11 points, four assists and no turnovers in 15 minutes of action. • Was a perfect 4-for-4 from the free-throw line against Brevard. • Hard work in the preseason has earned him the primary backup point guard duties • Possesses deceptive explosiveness and can get his shot off against any defender. • Has great instincts, excels in transition and can finish with contact at the rim. • Is comfortable with the ball in high-pressure situations. • Still working hard to gain a better understanding of “team defense” principles • Competing with starting point guard Melvin Goins everyday in practice has helped him adust to the physical nature of SEC basketball.

Delving Deeper One of four Georgia natives on Tennessee’s current roster (joining Kenny Hall, Jordan McRae and Cameron Tatum) ... Was a national top-100 recruit and the 2010 “Mr. Basketball” in the state of Georgia ... Was a teammate of fellow Vols freshman Jordan McRae on the 2010 adidas Nations U.S. National Team ...

Noting McBee • Struggled shooting the ball in the season-opener against Chattanooga (11/12/10) but had a career-high four assists in the win. • Is a much better shooter than he displayed during exhibition play (.385 from the floor and .300 from 3-point range) when he averaged 7.0 points per game. • Scored nine points on 3-of-7 shooting before fouling out of UT’s exhibition game against Indianapolis. • Played 19 minutes at the No. 2 spot during UT’s exhibition win over Brevard, totaling five points. • His play as a walk-on last year was rewarded with a scholarhip in the summer. • All of his minutes last season at came at the No. 2 spot, but he could potentially provide depth at the point guard position this season if needed. • A “green-light” guy: any open look he gets is considered a good shot for the Vols’ offense. • Improved his ability to penetrate, whether it’s to score or set up a teammate. • 80 of his 99 field-goal attempts last season were 3-pointers (81 percent). • Hit the shot heard ‘round America on Jan. 10, as his off-balance 3-pointer vs. top-ranked Kansas sealed the Vols’ 76-68 upset win; he played a career-high 23 minutes in the victory and finished with six points on a pair of big 3-pointers.

Delving Deeper Never takes a possession off or rests on the court ... Partipated in a goodwill trip to China this past summer and played exhibition games on a team of U.S. collegians (part of Kentucky-based Sports Reach ministries) ... Turned down scholarship offers at Marshall, Santa Clara and Winthrop and instead opted to walk-on at Tennessee with the hopes of one day earning a scholarship (which he did) ... Attended the same high school as UT All-Century Team member and former AllAmerica forward A.W. Davis (1962-65) ... Played quarterback on his high school football team ... Academic major is Communication studies.
