¢ This is Tennessee’s third tournament appearance in Puerto Rico, and the Vols are 4-4 here. ¢ Tennessee went 2-1 at the 1999 Puerto Rico Holiday Classic, defeating American-Puerto Rico and Southern Illinois before falling to Tulsa in the title game. The Vols posted a 1-2 record at the 1991 San Juan Shootout, with a win over American-Puerto Rico followed by losses to TCU and Miami (Fla). ¢ The Vols swept a home-and-home series with UMass in 2003 and 2004, the only meetings in the series. Current Brooklyn Nets guard C.J. Watson totaled 20 points and 11 assists for UT in the two wins. ¢ Last season, UMass went 25-11 and advanced to the semfinals of both the Atlantic 10 Championship and the NIT. The Minutemen finished tied for fifth in the Atlantic 10 after being picked 12th in the preseason. ¢ Leading the way was Chaz Williams, who averaged 16.9 points, 6.2 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game and was named first-team All-Atlantic 10 and NABC All-District. He set UMass sophomore records for assists (231) and steals (81). ¢ Head coach Derek Kellogg is in his fifth year leading his alma mater. The 1995 UMass graduate returned for his first head coaching job after serving as an assistant coach for 12 years, the last eight at Memphis under former UMass head coach John Calipari. ¢ Kellogg, who was recruited by and played for Calipari at UMass, was teammates with current Auburn head coach Tony Barbee in Amherst.

„ BY THE NUMBERS

8

» Sophomore power forward Jarnell Stokes, who at 18-years-old measures in at a chiseled 6-8, 270 pounds, enters the season with eight percent body fat.

SIXTH MAN SPARKPLUG

¢ Just as he did during the second half of last season, junior wing Jordan McRae has provided an offensive boost off the bench through three games for Tennessee. ¢ McRae ranks second on the team with 11.0 points per game, and he is shooting a teamleading .556 (5-for-9) from 3-point range. ¢ The Midway, Ga., native came off the bench to score in double figures in six of UT’s last 14 games last season.

MISSING MAYMON ON THE GLASS

¢ With its top returning rebounder, Jeronne Maymon, out with a knee injury, Tennessee has been neutralized on the boards. ¢ Maymon was fifth in the SEC with 8.1 rpg last season (including 3.0 offensive rpg). ¢ The Vols own a 0.0 rebounding margin, as they and their opponents each average exactly 32.0 rebounds per game. ¢ Forwards Jarnell Stokes (6.7 rpg) and Kenny Hall (6.3 rpg) lead the Vols in rebounding.

22

» Blue Ribbon Yearbook ranks Tennessee 22nd on its preseason top25 list. The Vols are receiving votes in both of the major top-25 polls.

PUERTO RICO CONNECTIONS

¢ True freshman guard Derek Reese (who is inactive as he rehabs from August shoulder surgery) played for Puerto Rico in July’s Nike Global Challenge. He was eligible for the team because his grandparents, Anselmo and Irma Montanez, were born in Puerto Rico. ¢ Reese led the Puerto Rican team in scoring (21.0 ppg), rebounding (12.3 rpg) and steals (1.3 spg). ¢ Sophomore guard Brandon Lopez’s father, Hector Lopez, is Puerto Rican (now lives in Florida). ¢ Vols assistant coach Kent Williams actually played against Tennessee at the 1999 Puerto Rico Holiday Classic in Bayamón. Then a true freshman at Southern Illinois, Williams led the Salukis with 15 points on 5-of-17 shooting. He also grabbed six rebounds and had a pair of assists, but UT won the game 87-74 ¢ During his tenure as head coach at Appalachian State, UT director of basketball operations Houston Fancher guided the Mountaineers to the 2006 San Juan Shootout title, posting consecutive wins over Virginia, UCF and Vanderbilt.

» Tennessee is the only team in the Southeastern Conference to have three players named to the coaches’ preseason All-SEC Team (Maymon, Golden and Stokes).

BIG ORANGE GLOBETROTTERS

¢ In the one-year period spanning from Nov. 19, 2011, to Nov. 19, 2012, the Vols will have spent 10 days in Italy and close to a week in both Maui and Puerto Rico.

STARTING SHORTHANDED

¢ The Vols enter this week’s tournament with three members of its 15-man roster sidelined by injuries. Most notably, senior forward Jeronne Maymon, a second-team All-SEC performer and UT’s second-leading scorer last season, is out with a knee injury. ¢ Fellow senior forward Dwight Miller also is still rehabbing following offseason knee surgery. ¢ Freshman guard Derek Reese had surgery in August to address a labral tear.

OKLAHOMA STATE RECAP

¢ Tennessee suffered its first defeat of the 2012-13 season Friday, falling 62-45 to Oklahoma State in the semifinals of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. ¢ The Vols (2-1) struggled from the floor all afternoon, shooting just 26.0 percent overall and only making 5-of-23 from 3-point range. Oklahoma State outrebounded the Vols 40-30. ¢ Junior point guard Trae Golden led UT with 11 points – the Vols’ only double-figure scorer. ¢ Marcus Smart led three Cowboys in double-figures with 17 points along with a game-high nine rebounds. Le’Bryan Nash also tallied 17, while Markel Brown had 13 points and eight rebounds. ¢ Ahead by 14 on seven different occasions in the first 10 minutes of the second half, OSU finally extended its lead beyond that two-touchdown mark on a 3-pointer by Smart and a layup by Kirby Gardner. Those buckets finished a 7-0 spurt by OSU and put them ahead 54-35 with 7:45 remaining. ¢ In a defensive first half, OSU led 30-19 at halftime as the Cowboys outrebounded the Vols 2013. OSU outscored the Vols 14-7 to end the half. ¢ The offenses struggled on both ends, as the teams were held scoreless for nearly five minutes midway though the half. OSU broke the drought as former Vol Philip Jurick scored with 7:27 left in the half to give the Cowboys as 16-7 lead. ¢ Tennessee missed 10 field goals in a row at one point in the first half, as the Vols did not register a point for 8:21.

#LOCKDOWN /// TENNESSEE DEFENSIVE NOTES “They just dug, scratched and clawed ... they played harder than we did.” - Jim Calhoun, Jan. 21, 2012

QUICK DEFENSIVE NOTES

¢ Tennessee’s half-court defense has caused one shot-clock violation so far this season. ¢ In Tennessee’s season-opening win over Kennesaw State on Nov. 9, the Vols held the Owls scoreless for the first 5:02 of the second half and prevented KSU from making its first second-half field goal until 6:15 had elapsed. ¢ The Vols held Oklahoma State scoreless for a span of 3:39 in the first half during the Puerto Rico Tip-Off semifinals on Nov. 16. ¢ Jarnell Stokes recorded a career-high five steals in the season-opener against Kennesaw State.

SHUTTING DOWN THE THREE

¢ The Vols boast an impressive .257 3-point fieldgoal defense so far this season, holding opponents to an average of three made 3-pointers per game (9-of-35). ¢ Unfortunately for UT, its opponents are shooting .528 on two-point field goals (56-of-106).

SACRIFICING THE BODY FOR THE TEAM

¢ Through three games, Kenny Hall has drawn a team-high two charges this season. ¢ As a team, Tennessee has drawn five charges on the year.

ACTIVE HANDS

¢ The Vols track the number of pass deflections they record every game. Tennessee has had at least 10 deflections in each of its games this season, and is averaging 12.0 per game. ¢ Those who attend a Tennessee basketball game in person are sure to hear Cuonzo Martin’s repetitive yell of, “Haaands!” whenever the Vols are on defense.

„ MARTIN-ERA BESTS

¢ Tennessee’s scoring defense of 61.6 ppg in SEC play last year was the program’s best in the shotclock era (1986-present). ¢ Not since 1968-69 had a UT team stifled league opponents like last year’s Vols. ¢ The 1968-69 squad held SEC opponents to just 60.9 ppg; at that time, the SEC was composed of only 10 teams and the league schedule featured 18 games.

MARTIN HAS HISTORY WITH DEFENSIVE STOPPERS

¢ During Cuonzo Martin’s assistant/associate head coaching tenure at Purdue from 2000-08, the Boilermakers produced three Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year honorees. ¢ Guard Kenneth Lowe won the award in both 2003 and 2004, and guard Chris Kramer captured the honor in 2008. ¢ And in 2011, which was Martin’s third and final season as head coach at Missouri State, he coached Jermaine Mallett to a spot on the MVC All-Defense Team.

EMPHASIS OF THE DAY

UT HAS BEATEN SEVERAL NBA STARS

¢ Prior to every Tennessee practice, Cuonzo Martin gathers the Vols at midcourt and discusses the “Emphasis of the Day.” ¢ The Emphasis of the Day rarely focuses on basketball-specific skills or strategy, as Martin typically uses it as a vehicle for character building and personal development. As such, it has become something that the members of the team look forward to each day. ¢ Martin typically begins by reading that day’s “emphasis” aloud. He then asks one or two players to read it aloud before opening a team-wide discussion during which different team members are asked to interpret the meaning in their own words. ¢ “Everyday when coach gives the guys the emphasis of the day, it’s something that really makes them think and become closer as a team,” associate head coach Tracy Webster said. “A lot of times, the things that he says really hit home with the guys. It can be about family life, it can be a scripture, it can be a quote from someone, but it’s all geared around `team.’ ¢ Added Webster: “If the guys are having a hard time understanding the message, he breaks it down for them and makes sure that they do. It’s kind of like prayer before a meal. It’s to help you get off to a good start. ¢ A few examples:  My desire is that the people who know me the best respect me the most. Success is not measured by how many people I coach or how many games I win; success is living life with such authentic integrity that those who know me best actually respect me the most.  When someone does well, we all do well. When someone makes a mistake, we all make the mistake. Let’s figure out the best way to constructively help each other.  When we are reliable, others know that they can depend on us. They know that we will make the effort to do our best, whatever the situation might be. They know we won’t run, cower or become paralyzed by fear.

¢ Over the last five years, several of the NBA's elite stars who didn't experience many losses during their college days have tasted defeat at the hands of the Volunteers.

TURNING A PROFIT ¢ Men’s basketball is one of two sports at the University of Tenessee that turns a profit annually (football is the other). ¢ In the spring of 2012, the Tennessee men’s basketball program was included on Forbes.com’s list of the 20 “most valuable” college basketball programs in the country (No. 18). ¢ The figures showed UT hoops with a value of $12.7 million and a profit of $6.9 million in 2011-12. ¢ Tennessee hoops also made that same Forbes’ Top-20 list in 2011.

STOKES ON WOODEN AWARD, NAISMITH TROPHY WATCH LISTS

LEAGUE MEDIA PICKS VOLS FOURTH

¢ The Los Angeles Athletic Club placed sophomore power forward Jarnell Stokes on its John R. Wooden Award Preseason Top-50 list. ¢ Stokes also landed on the 50-player, early-season watch list for the Naismith Trophy.

¢ A preseason poll of SEC and national media members projected Tennessee to finish fourth in the 14-team SEC this season. ¢ The Vols were picked to finish 11th in last year’s preseason media poll (the league had 12 teams), but went 10-6 to finish second in the final standings in Cuonzo Martin’s first season at UT.

VOLS SEEKING EIGHTH STRAIGHT SEASON OF TOP-FIVE ATTENDANCE

ROSTER BREAKDOWN

¢ The Vols finished fifth nationally in average regular-season home attendance last year, drawing 17,411 fans per game. ¢ As of Nov. 3, Tennessee had already sold more season tickets for the 2012-13 campaign (13,000+) than there are total seats at five different SEC arenas.

TWO VOLS LAND ON “TOP 100” LIST

¢ Tennessee’s frontcourt tandem of Jeronne Maymon and Jarnell Stokes was honored by CBSSports.com in the preseason, as each player landed on the website’s list of “College Basketball’s Top 100 Players.” ¢ Stokes and Maymon were listed at Nos. 25 and 69, respectively. ¢ Tennessee was one of 22 schools (and one of four in the SEC) to place multiple players in the list’s top 70. ¢ Stokes and Maymon headline what CBSsports. com college basketball expert Gary Parrish touts as “one of the nation’s best front courts.” ¢ The pair weighs in at 530 pounds and combined for 22.3 points and 15.5 rebounds per game a season ago.

GOLDEN, MAYMON, STOKES GARNER PRESEASON ALL-SEC HONORS

¢ Trae Golden was s second-team selection on the coaches' preseason All-SEC Team. ¢ Jeronne Maymon made the coaches’ All-SEC first team but was a second-team selection by the league’s media. ¢ Jarnell Stokes was named to the media’s fiveman preseason All-SEC first team (and received three votes for SEC POY), but the league’s coaches tabbed him as a second-teamer.

¢ The Vols’ 2012-13 roster features 15 players (13 scholarship student-athletes) representing three nations and seven states. ¢ Four Vols hail from the state of Tennessee, while four are from Georgia. ¢ Tennessee has five seniors, three juniors, four sophomores and three freshmen. ¢ The roster includes nine guards, five forwards and one center. ¢ Six Vols stand 6-5 or shorter, and nine are 6-6 or taller.

BIG ORANGE ANNIVERSARIES

¢ The 2012-13 season marks the 50th anniversary of legendary head coach Ray Mears’ first season at UT. Mears was the head coach at Tennessee for 15 years from 1962-63 to 1976-77 and boasted a .713 winning percentage (278-112). He passed away on June 11, 2007. ¢ The 2012-13 campaign also is the 70th anniversary of Tennessee’s 1943 SEC Championship team, which finished 14-4 (6-3 SEC) under head coach John Mauer. ¢ Twenty years ago, Allan Houston captured the 1993 SEC scoring title (22.3 ppg) – and he also broke Ernie Grunfeld’s school scoring record. ¢ And Ron Slay was the league’s scoring champion 10 years ago, averaging 21.2 ppg in 2003.

ANOTHER AMBITIOUS SCHEDULE

¢ In keeping with recent tradition, Tennessee’s schedule will once again rank among the most difficult in the nation... ¢ At least 17 games against teams that won 20 or more games last season ¢ At least 13 games against teams that played in the NCAA Tournament last season (and at least seven games against teams who advanced to the Sweet Sixteen) ¢ At least 12 games against teams with a top-50 RPI last season

80 = TIPPING POINT

¢ In five seasons as a head coach, Cuonzo Martin’s teams are 15-2 when they score at least 80 points. That’s not surprising given the emphasis Martin places on unrelenting defensive pressure, tenacity and technique.

BIG ORANGE ROSTER PEACH FLAVORED ONCE AGAIN

¢ Sophomore power forward Jarnell Stokes starred this summer for the USA Basketball Men’s U18 National Team, which won the gold medal at the 2012 FIBA Americas U18 Championship June 16-20 in Sao Sebastiáo do Paraiso, Brazil. ¢ The Memphis, Tenn., native started all five of Team USA’s games at the championship, averaging 14.0 points and 5.6 rebounds in 20.2 minutes per game. ¢ The team’s second-leading rebounder and scorer, Stokes was remarkably efficient offensively, shooting .689 from the field. ¢ Stokes was the only player on the U.S. squad who boasted any collegiate experience. ¢ “You leave the SEC and come back to playing with your age group — it’s crazy how much easier it gets and how much smaller the other guys are,” Stokes said. “I can bury guys better. Sometimes I buried them early, before I’d catch the ball, and I already had them sealed.” ¢ Florida coach Billy Donovan was Stokes’ head coach at the FIBA Championship and was impressed by Stokes’ ability to physically dominate. ¢ “There was no one guy down there who could match up to him physically,” Donovan said. “He just overwhelmed other teams’ frontcourts.”

SUMMER VACATION: VOLS IN ITALY Cuonzo Martin took the Tennessee basketball team on a 10-day, four-game exhibition tour of Italy Aug. 5-15. The tour began in Rome and progressed north through Florence, Pisa and The Republic of San Marino before concluding in Como. The Volunteers plowed through each of their four exhibition opponents en route to a perfect 4-0 record. The competition included All-Star Italy (a collection of Italian professional players), the Lithuanian second-division champion BC Atletas, BC Zeta Golubovci from Montenegro and Amici del Campetto. BC Atletas provided the biggest test for Tennessee — the Lithuanian pros defeated Georgia just days before facing the Vols. Atletas also added a victory over Purdue two days after playing UT. Tennessee handed BC Atletas an 82-68 defeat in what would prove to be the Vols’ lowest-scoring game of the tour. In total, the Big Orange boasted an average margin of victory of 49.3 points in its four outings. Twice, in a display of sportsmanship, the Vols requested a running clock during the second half. In an effort to make the trip an educational opportunity for a team with numerous players who had never traveled abroad, Martin called upon UT professor Dr. Robert Bast, Cuonzo Martin (second from left) and who crafted a three-credit course (History 491) appropriately members of his staff at the Leaning Tower named “Renaissance Men.” The class met for several on-cam- of Pisa. pus lectures before the trip, preparing the student-athletes for the culture, cities and landmarks they would encounter once they stepped foot on Italian soil. Highlights of the trip included visits to the Roman Colosseum, the ruins of the Roman Forum, Vatican City — including St. Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel — Michelangelo’s famous sculpture of David in Florence, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the three towers of San Marino and a cruise on Lake Como (the first-ever boat ride for four team members).

MARTIN ALWAYS POISED

¢ In 139 games as a college head coach, Cuonzo Martin has never been whistled for a technical foul.

20 = 100 FOR MARTIN

¢ If Tennessee reaches the 20-win mark this season, win No. 20 also will be the 100th victory of Cuonzo Martin’s young head-coaching career. ¢ Martin entered this season with an 80-56 record in four previous seasons as a head coach (three at Missouri State, one at Tennessee).

$40 MILLION COMMITMENT Hoops a Priority on Rocky Top

The University of Tennessee has invested more than $40 million into its basketball facilities since the end of the 2006-07 campaign. Prior to the 2007-08 season, 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 center-hung scoreboard and concourse refurbishments, such as graphics and other amenities. The Vols’ 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. The athletic department renovated the men’s and women’s basketball offices at the arena during the 2010-11 campaign, creating a new and impressive “front door” for the basketball programs. And new to Thompson-Boling Arena last year was the 360-degree LED ribbon board that runs along the bottom of the upper deck.


It’s so much MORE than just winning ballgames. DEVELOPING WELL-ROUNDED YOUNG MEN

¢ Cuonzo Martin is genuinely just as passionate about the development of his players off the court as he is about their athletic development. As such, he relies on Marco Harris, the basketball team’s student-athlete welfare coordinator, to conduct yearround seminars that educate the team on topics that will benefit them later in life. ¢ Harris was a two-sport athlete in college (basketball and baseball), and he also is a successful private business owner, operating a pair of Subway franchises. ¢ Harris regularly schedules guest speakers and team seminars focused on topics such as “Dressing for Success,” AIDS awareness, credit score education, how to keep a budget, balance a checkbook and more. ¢ Harris also oversees the team’s community outreach efforts. The team has visited patients at UT Medical Center and St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and also has assisted with Habitat for Humanity building projects (2011 and 2012), Race for the Cure and several other events.

“Eventually this ball will stop bouncing. So I’ve got to help you find your way in life. And I want you to walk with your head held high and your chest out because you’re a man.” - Cuonzo Martin

PERSONAL BRANDING THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA

¢ Rather than banning his players from using various social media services, Cuonzo Martin believes in educating them on how to effectively use social media as a positive personal branding tool.

MEN’S HOOPS HAS WON FOUR OF UT’s LAST SIX COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARDS

¢ The Tennessee men’s basketball team has won four of the last six Men’s Community Service Team of the Year Awards, presented annually at the “Volscars” ceremony. ¢ The Volscars (wordplay on “Oscars”) is UT’s annual year-end athletic awards show.
