He appeared in six total tournament games. The Boilermakers lost in the first round in 1993, advanced to the Elite Eight in 1994 and reached the second round in 1995. ¢ During Martin’s time as an assistant/associate head coach at Purdue under Gene Keady and later Matt Painter, the Boilermakers earned three NCAA Tournament berths, reaching the second round in 2003, 2007 and 2008.

VOLS’ STAFF HAS NCAA EXPERIENCE

¢ Not counting Cuonzo Martin’s 13 games as a player/coach, the Tennessee coaching staff still has a wealth of NCAA Tournament experience. ¢ Associate head coach Tracy Webster advanced

to the second round of the Big Dance as a senior point guard at Wisconsin in 1994. He’s also coached in four previous NCAA Tournaments (10 total games). Webster was an assistant coach on Illinois’ 2005 National Runner-Up team. ¢ Assistant coach Jon Harris played in one NCAA Tournament game as a senior on Tom Crean’s 2002 Marquette squad. He was also on staff the next year, as Dwyane Wade powered Marquette to the 2003 Final Four. ¢ Assistant coach Kent Williams led Southern Illinois to back-to-back NCAA berths as an upperclassman in 2002 and 2003. That 2002 SIU squad advanced to the Sweet Sixteen under head coach Bruce Weber. ¢ All told, Tennessee’s four full-time coaches combine to boast 38 games of NCAA Tournament playing and/or coaching experience.

LIMITED NCAA EXPERIENCE FOR ROSTER ¢ Only three players on Tennessee’s 15-man roster have ever been on an NCAA Tournament team, and just one of them has played meaningful minutes in the Big Dance prior to this week. ¢ Seniors Jeronne Maymon and Jordan McRae played one and two minutes, respectively, at the end of UT’s 2011 NCAA Tournament loss vs. Michigan. Neither scored. ¢ Senior transfer Antonio Barton went to three NCAA Tournaments during his three seasons at Memphis (2011, 2012, 2013), and he appeared in three of the four tournament games the Tigers played. In those three contests, Barton averaged 5.7 points in 14.3 minutes. He shot 6-for-11 and made three 3-pointers during a 17-point NCAA performance vs. Arizona as a freshman in 2011.

LAST TIME VS. UMASS...

¢ Thanks to a career-high 24 points from Jarnell Stokes (still his career-high), Tennessee captured third place in the Puerto Rico Tipoff with an 83-69 win over UMass Nov. 18, 2012. The Vols used a late surge to plow past the Minutemen. ¢ Stokes, an All-Tournament Team selection, added a game-high 12 rebounds as the Vols ripped down 51 boards for a +14 margin on the glass. ¢ Jordan McRae netted 12 points off the bench while Trae Golden, Skylar McBee and Josh Richardson each scored 11 for the Vols. ¢ After falling behind momentarily, the Vols went on a 17-2 run as Stokes scored six points in the spurt to make it 61-54 UT with seven minutes left. A McRae dunk had tied the game at 52, then his 3-pointer put the Vols ahead 57-54 with 8:15 left. ¢ The Vols made eight of 10 free throws in the final 2:11 to ice the win. ¢ UMass was led by Jesse Morgan, who had 18 and Chaz Williams, who had 16 points, eight rebounds and eight assists.

IOWA “FIRST FOUR” RECAP

KEEPING SCORING GUARDS IN CHECK

¢ Tennessee overcame a 12-point first-half deficit to clip Iowa in overtime Wednesday in First Four action in Dayton, Ohio. ¢ The 12-point deficit was the second-largest deficit the Vols had rallied from this season. ¢ UT junior Josh Richardson was tremendous after a slow start, as he was 0-for-5 in the first half. He finished with 17 points -- all after halftime. Senior Jordan McRae led the team with a teamhigh 20 points. ¢ Vols junior Jarnell Stokes posted his 20th double-double of the season with 18 points and 13 rebounds. ¢ Iowa’s leading scorer, Roy Devyn Marble (17.3 ppg) was limited to just seven points on 3-of-15 shooting from the floor. ¢ The Hawkeyes (20-13) were led by a pair of reserves that entered the game averaging a combined 9.6 points. Center Adam Woodbury scored a career-high with 16 points while Peter Jok added 10 points, his best game in three months. ¢ The Hawkeyes took a 16-4 lead with 11:34 left in the first half on a 3-pointer by Josh Oglesby. The Vols held Iowa scoreless over the final 3:42 of the half while going on a 7-0 run to enter halftime trailing by three, 29-26. ¢ Tennessee took its first lead of the game on a 3-pointer by Antonio Barton with 3:07 left in the game. The teams traded blows from there. ¢ Marble sent the game to overtime with a jumper in the paint with 17.5 seconds on the clock. That tied the game at 64-64. Tennessee outscored Iowa 14-1 in overtime.

VOLS .500 VS. A-10 IN TOURNEY ¢ Tennessee owns a 1-1 record against current members of the Atlantic 10 Conference in NCAA Tournament play. ¢ UT’s first-ever NCAA appearance was a loss to Dayton in 1967. And the Vols defeated VCU in 1981 in Charlotte, N.C.

NINTH NCAA TRIP TO NORTH CAROLINA ¢ Tennessee is 4-7 in eight previous NCAA Tournament trips to the state of North Carolina. The Vols are 2-4 in tournament games in Charlotte (1976, 1981, 1999, 2008, 2011) and 2-3 in Greensboro (1980, 1989, 2006).

MARTIN JOINS RARE NCAA QUARTET ¢ By logging a win in his first career NCAA Tournament game as a head coach, Cuonzo Martin became just the fourth coach in program history to lead the Volunteers to a victory in the “Big Dance.” ¢ The three previous coaches to win at least one NCAA Tournament game as Tennessee’s head coach are: Don DeVoe (five wins), Jerry Green (three wins) and Bruce Pearl (eight wins).

TOILING TO REACH 10

¢ Tennessee had a recent four-game stretch during which its opponents struggled mightily to reach the 10-point mark. ¢ In the four games before facing top-ranked Florida in the SEC Tournament semifinals (3/15/14), on average, it took teams 13 minutes and four seconds to hit the 10-point mark against UT.

HISTORIC THREE-GAME TEAR ¢ Tennessee’s final three regular-season wins came by a combined total of 93 points. ¢ The three-game margin of victory was UT’s largest in three consecutive SEC games since Feb. 1965, when Lyndon B. Johnson was POTUS. ¢ UT beat Florida 75-43 on Feb. 1, 1965, downed

Miss. State 77-57 on Feb. 6, 1965, and then defeated Ole Miss, 96-50 in Oxford on Feb. 8, 1965.

STINGY SCORING DEFENSE

¢ In UT’s last six games, the Vols have allowed just 50.3 ppg. ¢ The 38 points allowed by the Vols against Vanderbilt on March 1 marked the best defensive effort of the season for the Big Orange. ¢ UT’s overall scoring defense stands at 61.2 ppg. In SEC play, the Vols allowed 61.0 ppg, which ranked second in the conference (behind Florida).

WIRE-TO-WIRE WINS ¢ 13 of Tennessee’s 22 wins this season (62 percent) have been wire-to-wire victories in which the Vols never trailed. ¢ That equates to 520 minutes of basketball. ¢ Two of those wire-to-wire wins have come on the road: at Alabama (2/2/14), at Auburn (3/5/14) and vs. South Carolina (3/14/14). ¢ UT had a five-game span of wire-to-wire wins from March 1-14, meaning that the Vols did not trail for 200 straight minutes of action.

UT ONE OF NATION’S TOP OFFENSIVE REBOUNDING TEAMS

¢ Tennessee ranks fifth nationally in offensive rebounding percentage (.394). ¢ The Vols rank tied for 20th nationally in offensive rebounds per game (13.6). ¢ Jeronne Maymon and Jarnell Stokes combine to average 7.6 orpg. ¢ In league games, Stokes led the SEC in offensive rebounds (4.5 orpg). Maymon was fourth (3.4 orpg). ¢ Tennessee led the SEC in rebounding defense, allowing league foes to grab just 30.1 rpg.

MARTIN’S PROGRAM MANTRA: #TOUGHERBREED ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE ¢ The Tennessee basketball team’s performance in the classroom has improved dramatically since head coach Cuonzo Martin’s arrival on Rocky Top. There have been several noteworthy highlights. ¢ When the NCAA released its most recent Academic Progress Rate (APR) data in June 2013, the basketball program’s multi-year score of 973 was its best ever. ¢ Martin has been at the helm for each of the program’s two best multi-year APR scores ever (961 in 2012, 973 in 2013). ¢ The program’s 2.63 team GPA for the Spring 2013 semester was its best since the data started being recorded in 2003. ¢ In Martin’s two full years at Tennessee, every outgoing senior has received his degree. ¢ A total of 21 Tennessee men’s basketball players have graduated in the last five years. Those players are: Josh Bone, Quinn Cannington, Ryan Childress, Wayne Chism, John Fields, Melvin Goins, Kenny Hall, Tony Harris, Michael Hubert, Justin Jackson, Chris Lofton, Skylar McBee, Dwight Miller, Rob Murphy, Steven Pearl, J.P. Prince, Tyler Summitt, Cameron Tatum, C.J. Watson, Tanner Wild and Renaldo Woolridge. ¢ Of those 21 graduates in the last five years, 10 went on to sign professional basketball contracts and two have gone into coaching.

EMPHASIS OF THE DAY ¢ 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:  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.

Tennessee head coach Cuonzo Martin introduced a new program slogan this season: A Tougher Breed. “Toughness has got to be what we are as a program. That’s our brand, our way of life,” Martin said. So the Vols embody that “tougher breed” approach in all they do. Their workouts, which oftentimes begin long before sunrise. The standards to which coaches hold players and players hold each other. It can hardly be surprising that Tennessee also employs some boxing workouts from time to time, or that the Vols are embracing their lacing up the sneakers like a pugilist tying on gloves. They proudly wear T-shirts with orange boxing gloves that read “Let’s Rumble.” “That came from the coaching staff. We’ve done boxing workouts as a team. It just shows our toughness and our tenacity,” senior forward Jeronne Maymon explained. “How we get after things. Especially on the court, we’re always pushing and shoving each other and testing our brothers on the practice court. The sport of boxing is a good translation to what we do in practice and the weight room and other things in life. “It would be hard to find a tougher team in America than the University of Tennessee men’s basketball program. That’s what we hang our hat on. You’ve got to find something to hang your hat on, and we hang our hat on toughness.” Proof of said toughness is undeniable across Martin’s first two campaigns in Knoxville; his teams held foes to fewer than 65 points per game both seasons and also ranked second each year in the SEC in rebounding margin. “Coach Martin has a very steady personality. He doesn’t waver. You always know what you’re going to get, so I think that’s what really keeps us on balance,” said Maymon. “So if (coach’s) personality wavered and sometimes he was happy and sometimes he was sad and he made us do drills off his emotions, then we’d be unbalanced. But he’s very stable, and we know what we’re getting and what we’re getting into every day. So it’s pretty easy for us to adapt to his personality. Martin now knows without a doubt this Tennessee team wants to earn and desperately craves the opportunity to proclaim and wear that label of toughness. “The one thing about it, every guy wants to be considered tough; they like the results behind it on the floor but also the stuff we do in the weight room,” Martin said. “Guys love to have a level of toughness, like the shirts we’ve got with the boxing gloves and ’Let’s rumble.’ We enjoy that, we embrace that. We want to be as tough as we can be on the basketball floor and as nice as we can be off the basketball floor.”

“Toughness has got to be what we are as a program. That’s our brand, our way of life.” — Cuonzo Martin

VOLS IN THE NBA ¢ Former Vol Tobias Harris (2011) is averaging 14.9 points and 7.1 rebounds in 31.0 minutes as a starting forward for the Orlando Magic this season. This is Harris’ third season in the NBA.

¢ Veteran NBA point guard C.J. Watson (2003-06) is playing his seventh NBA season and first with the Indiana Pacers. He is averaging 6.3 points and 1.7 assists in 18.9 minutes off the bench.

¢ Vol legends Ernie Grunfeld (1974-77) and Allan Houston (1990-93) each hold NBA front-office titles. Grunfeld is in his 11th year as president of the Wizards, and Houston is the assistant general manager of the New York Knicks.

¢ The players on Tennessee’s roster combine to boast 367 blocks. ¢ Interestingly, more than 60 percent of those blocks (229 of 367) are by guards. ¢ The Vols’ backcourt blocks leaders are senior Jordan McRae and junior Josh Richardson, who own 92 and 68 career blocks, respectively. ¢ Tennessee’s guards account for 59.6 percent of the team’s blocked shots this season (96 of 161).

ACTIVE HANDS

¢ The Vols track the number of pass deflections they record every game. They average 17.7 deflections per game this season (602 total). ¢ Tennessee has had at least 10 deflections in all but one of its games this season. ¢ 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 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. ¢ Now, in his third season at Tennessee, Martin has also produced an SEC All-Defensive Team honoree, as junior Josh Richardson became just the second Vol ever to make the team, which was introduced in 2008.

DE-FENSE! DE-FENSE!

VOLS DISMANTLED ONE OF AMERICA’S BEST DEFENSES IN ROUT OF VIRGINIA

¢ Virginia entered its Dec. 30 game against UT ranked in the top six nationally in six defensive statistical categories, including the second stingiest scoring defense in America (54.2 ppg). ¢ The Cavs went on to the win the ACC crown. ¢ Tennessee went to work early and scored 48 points in the first half - the most allowed by UVA in a first half in 118 games. ¢ Against a UVA team that was allowing foes to shoot just .370 from the floor, Tennessee shot .500 for the game and .577 in the first half. ¢ The Vols had three 20-point scorers (McRae 21, Richardson 20, Stokes 20) for the first time in a regulation game since Feb. 2008. ¢ Virginia was sixth nationally in rebounding defense (28.5 rapg), but the Vols managed to outrebound the Cavs 35-33. ¢ The win by +35 is UT’s second-largest margin of victory in the Cuonzo Martin era. It was UT’s largest win margin since a 39-point rout of East Carolina on Nov 20, 2009 (105-66).

TIME’S UP!

¢ Tennessee has forced six 5-second calls this season (including one for on-ball pressure in the open court). ¢ UT has forced seven shot-clock violations.

VANDY VICTORY WAS HISTORIC

TENNESSEE KEEPS IT UNDER 70

¢ The Vols have held 53 of their last 65 opponents to fewer than 70 points, dating to last season. ¢ Only three Tennessee opponents have scored more than 70 points against the Vols this season (season-high was UTEP’s 78).

¢ Tennessee’s 38-point margin of victory in its 76-38 pummeling of Vanderbilt March 1 was UT’s largest in the history of the series. ¢ The 38 points by the Commodores marked their fewest point total in the series since 1947. ¢ Their 38 points were also the fewest ever by an opponent at Thompson-Boling Arena, which opened for the 1987-88 season. ¢ With a 41-18 lead at halftime, UT could have gone scoreless in the second half and still won the game by three points.

VOLS RANK NEAR TOP 50 IN BLOCKS

DEFENSIVE COACH-SPEAK

¢ Tennessee averages 4.7 blocks per game this season. That ranks tied for 58th in Division I. ¢ Forward Jarnell Stokes (34) and wing Jordan McRae (33) are Tennessee’s top shot-blockers.

STARTING STRONG

¢ In 56 of the 101 games UT has played under head coach Cuonzo Martin, the Vols have held teams the opponent to fewer than 30 first-half points.

CHARGES HARDER TO DRAW

¢ As a team, Tennessee took 52 charges last year (1.6 per game). ¢ This season, Tennessee has drawn just 21 charges through 34 games. ¢ Given the changes in how officials are instructed to make the block/charge call, this decline was to be expected.

¢ Xavier coach Chris Mack (Nov. 29): “When Tennessee missed a shot, we got bullied. They just pushed us anywhere they wanted, legally, and got the rebound." ¢ Morehead State coach Sean Woods (Dec. 23): “They just out-toughed us. You know, Maymon and Stokes are very good, that’s what they do... They’re getting better and better game by game.” ¢ Virginia coach Tony Bennett (Dec. 30): “Their model was to draw a line in the sand and dare you to cross it physically. That’s kind of their mentality... They just took it to us in every way.”

$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. New to Thompson-Boling Arena last year was the 360-degree LED ribbon board that runs along the bottom of the upper deck. And in March of 2014, TBA became the third college arena to install an LED lighting system (joining Arizona State and Notre Dame).

NCAA TOURNAMENT BOX SCORES 1967 NCAA Mideast Region — Regional Semifinal

1967 NCAA Mideast Region — Regional Consolation

Tennessee (21-6) 52 Indiana (18-8) 51 Dayton (23-5) 53 Tennessee (21-7) 44 March 17, 1967 • McGaw Hall • Evanston, Ill.

A cold-shooting first half was too much for Tennessee to overcome as the Volunteers fell 53-52 to Dayton in their first NCAA Tournament appearance. Tennessee trailed 36-25 at the break as Dayton hit 58 percent from the field compared to the Vols’ 23 percent. Tennessee hit only seven buckets in 31 attempts. Tennessee fought back, though, and whittled the lead down to 50-48 with 8:01 left on the clock when both teams started holding the ball. The Vols had possession of the ball and were looking for the perfect shot to tie the game, but Tom Boerwinkle was called for walking, and Dayton took over possession. Tennessee regained possession when Billy Hann came up with a steal with 3:10 remaining. Bill Justus then knotted the score at 50 when he hit a jumper with just over two minutes left in the game. Dayton then held the ball looking for a game winning shot. The Vols forced the issue with 24 seconds remaining and fouled Bobby Joe Hooper. Hooper was good on one of his free throw attempts giving the Vols a chance for the final shot and the win. The man picked to take the shot was Ron Widby, who had hit the game-winning shot against Mississippi State in the Vols’ regular season finale to clinch the SEC championship But Widby’s jumper from 20-feet was off the mark, and Dayton eventually regained possession. Two free throws later, the Flyers led 53-50. Widby hit an uncontested lay-up at the buzzer to finish the scoring. “Somebody has to take the last shot,” Widby said. “I never mind the pressure. I thought the ball was going in.” The Vols held All-America Don May, who came into the game averaging 22 points, to nine points on 2-of-10 shooting, but the guard duo of Hooper and Gene Klaus led the Flyers with 14 and 12, respectively. They shot a combined 11-of-14 from the field. “We did a fine defensive job on May, but got beat by the outside shooting of their guards,” UT head coach Ray Mears said. “They surprised us. We just didn’t think they could shoot so well from long range.” Widby finished with a game-high 20 points to pace four Vols in double figures. NOTES: Dayton advanced to the national championship game before falling 79-64 to UCLA ... The Vols won the SEC championship with a 15-3 record.

March 18, 1967 • McGaw Hall • Evanston, Ill.

Tennessee struggled from the field in a 51-44 defeat at the hands of Indiana in an NCAA Tournament regional consolation game. The Vols stayed close throughout the game and had as much as a three-point lead in the second half, but eventually faltered down the stretch. Tennessee connected on 14-of-46 shots from the field for 30.7 percent. Indiana did not fair much better at 37.2 percent, but dominated the boards 43 to 27. A short jumper from Ron Widby gave the Vols an 18-16 lead with just over five minutes left in the first half. Indiana then went into a stall in attempt to take the last shot of the half. They eventually got a bucket from Bill Joyner to tie the score. Tennessee failed to score on its next possession, and Vernon Payne gave the Hoosiers a 20-18 lead. Bill Justus hit a jumper at the halftime buzzer to pull the Vols even. Justus hit two free throws in the opening minutes of the second half to give the Vols a 27-24 advantage, but Indiana outscored the Vols 21-11 to open up a 45-38 lead. Justus and Widby hit back-to-back buckets for the Vols to cut the lead to three, but Russell and Jack Johnson hit two free throws each to put the game out of reach. The game was physical from the start which did not suit the playing style of Tennessee. “We played as hard as we could under the conditions,” Tennessee coach Ray Mears said. “They are taking the finesse out of the game when they depend on brute strength. We were not real sharp, but there were a lot of bumps and bruises out there.” NOTES: Indiana coach Lou Watson signed a scholarship with Tennessee coach John Mauer in 1946, but eventually played at Indiana ... Widby was named to the All-Tournament Team ... Widby scored 619 points during the 1966-67 season which was the most ever by a Vol ... Widby surpassed the mark of 522 points set by Carl Widseth during the 1955-56 season ... Widby averaged 22.1 points per game, which was tops in the SEC ... Indiana was the Big Ten champion.

1976 NCAA East Region — First Round

Tennessee (21-6) 75 VMI (21-9) 81 March 13, 1976 • Charlotte Coliseum • Charlotte, N.C.

VMI placed five players in double figures and shot a sizzling 66 percent from the field to upset the Volunteers 81-75 in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament. The “Bernie” was missing from “The Ernie and Bernie Show” in this game, as Bernard King was out of action with an injured left thumb. Ernie Grunfeld held up his end of the show as he poured in 36 points and grabbed eight rebounds. “I’m not embarrassed that we lost to VMI,” Grunfeld said. “I’m never embarrassed if we try, and we tried hard. We just didn’t get enough done. We can’t let them shoot like that and expect to win.” Grunfeld scored 12 straight points for Tennessee to close the first half, and the Vols had as much as a six-point lead during that stretch. The scored stood tied at 60 with 5:42 left in the game when the Keydets reeled off eight unanswered points. Tennessee had three shots blocked during that stretch, and Dave Montgomery scored six of the eight points for VMI. Two free throws from Austin Clarke pulled the Vols to within 70-67 with 2:08 remaining, but the Vols could get no closer. Tennessee coach Ray Mears made a move at halftime in hopes to give the Vols an emotional lift as King dressed out. “We let him dress out to see if it would give us a mental lift,” Mears said. “I wasn’t about to play him. We were not going to risk his future. Most of you don’t realize how much he means to us. We were just hoping to get through this first game.” Will Bynum led the Keydets with 20 points, followed by 19 from Ron Carter. John Krovic added 17, Curt Reppart tossed in 11, and Montgomery finished with 10. Mike Jackson was the only other Vol in double figures with 14 points.

Tennessee (22-6) 88 Syracuse (26-3) OT 93 March 13, 1977 • Assembly Center • Baton Rouge, La.

Syracuse posted a 93-88 overtime victory to put an end to the famed “Ernie and Bernie Show” at Tennessee. Things looked good early for Tennessee as the Vols raced out to a 20-10 lead against a pressing Syracuse defense. But the Orangemen regained their composure and eventually tied the score at 32 with just under five minutes left in the first half. Tennessee held strong, though, and an Ernie Grunfeld jumper put the Vols up eight at 47-39 with 17:51 left in the second half. Syracuse then staged a 14-2 run over the next five minutes to take a 53-49 advantage. Syracuse held a 78-74 lead with 1:31 left in the second half, but Reggie Johnson hit a short jumper and converted two free throws to tie the game. Larry Kelley’s shot at the end of regulation could have won the game for the Orangemen, but it was off the mark. A Ross Kindel steal and layup gave Syracuse an 86-80 lead with 2:03 left in overtime. Syracuse then hit 7-of-9 free throws in the final minute of overtime to seal the victory. “We didn’t score when we needed to score,” Tennessee coach Ray Mears said. “The break worked well early then went dry. Our game is based on King, Grunfeld and Jackson playing 40 minutes each. Maybe that is a fallacy. If you live by that idea, you die by it.” It certainly hurt the Vols as Grunfeld, Bernard King and Mike Jackson all watched the end of the game from the bench. Not helping matters were the 26 turnovers the Vols committed. Grunfeld led the Vols with 26 points and 12 rebounds, King tossed in 23 and also grabbed 12 rebounds. Reggie Johnson added 17 points and 10 boards. “I hope what happened against Syracuse won’t wash out the things we’ve done all year,” King said. “It was a great year for me and the team.” NOTES: The 22 wins by the Vols set a school record at that time ... Tennessee won a share of the SEC championship along with Kentucky ... Syracuse was led by first-year head coach Jim Boeheim ... Syracuse lost 81-59 to UNC Charlotte in the Regional Semifinals to finish its season 26-4.

#9 #8

Eastern Kentucky (21-8) 81 Tennessee (21-11) 97 March 9, 1979 • Murphy Athletic Center • Murfreesboro, Tenn.

Tennessee turned an early 10-point deficit into a 44-38 halftime lead and eventually logged a 97-81 victory over the Colonels. This was Tennessee’s first-ever win in the NCAA Tournament. The Vols fell behind 15-5 in the first five minutes of the game before finally getting things on track. Gary Carter made three consecutive field goals to spark a Tennessee rally and pull the Vols within 16-13. Johnny Darden then hit a long jumper, and the Vols had the Colonel lead to one. Eastern Kentucky regained its composure and had the lead back out to 30-26 with 4:44 left in the first half. Terry Crosby then reeled off three consecutive buckets for the Vols, and Tennessee held a 32-30 advantage with just under four minutes left in the half. “This game was won in the final eight minutes of the first half,” Tennessee coach Don DeVoe said. “By getting the ball to Terry Crosby, we were able to turn it around. We played poorly in the first 10 minutes but our kids snapped out of it.” The game was still close five minutes into the second half, but Tennessee went on an 18-6 run to turn a 54-50 lead into a 72-56 advantage with 8:21 left in the game. “We were too psyched up at the beginning,” Reggie Johnson said. “That was a terrible start. We had to come down from our high before we could play.” Johnson led the Vols with 20 points and nine rebounds. Carter added 18 points with a game-high 11 rebounds. Crosby finished the game with 19 points. James Tillman led Eastern Kentucky with 21 points. He was one of five Colonels in double figures as Dave Tierney netted 13, Bruce Jones had 12, and Vic Merchant and Kenney added 11 each.

1979 NCAA Mideast Region — Second Round #1 #8

Notre Dame (23-5) 73 Tennessee (21-12) 67 March 11, 1979 • Murphy Athletic Center • Murfreesboro, Tenn.

Notre Dame outscored the Vols 14-4 to open the second half to turn a 32-32 halftime tie into a 46-36 lead. Tennessee got no closer than five points the rest of the game and fell 73-67 to the Irish. “It was one of our poorest games in terms of poise and concentration,” Tennessee coach Don DeVoe said. “We hustled and worked the boards hard in the first half, but Notre Dame made us play as if we were scared in the first two minutes of the second half.” Notre Dame opened the second half with a full-court press, forcing four Tennessee turnovers in the first 2:05 of the half. “We noted that Tennessee made 21 turnovers against Eastern Kentucky, so our staff decided to go right after them with the press,” Notre Dame coach Digger Phelps said. “We played it loosely at the start then went to a closer press with a quick-trap. That forced some turnovers and gave us some breathing room.” Both Terry Crosby and Reggie Johnson had poor games shooting the ball for the Vols. They combined to hit 7-of-21 field goal attempts. Johnson also missed five of his 10 free-throw attempts. “Neither Terry Crosby and Reggie Johnson had a good offensive game,” DeVoe said. “When that happens, we have problems.” Johnson finished with 13 points, eight below his season average. Gary Carter led the Vols with 16 points. Chuck Threeths added 10 points and eight rebounds. “I was taking normal shots, but there was a lid on the basket,” Crosby said. “Almost any night we play, Reggie and I have to have good games offensively for us to win. Neither of us scored as we must to win.” NOTES: Tennessee had won nine consecutive games before losing to the Irish, including two games in the SEC Tournament on its way to the tournament title ... Notre Dame lost 80-68 to Michigan State in the Regional Finals ... 1979 was the first year tournament seeding was used.

#10 #7

Furman (23-7) 69 Tennessee (18-10) 80 March 6, 1980 • Greensboro Coliseum • Greensboro, N.C.

A change in the starting lineup proved fruitful for the Vols as they posted an 80-69 victory over the Palladins. The Vols inserted Steve Ray and Chuck Threeths in the starting lineup for Dale Ellis and Kevin Nash, respectively. The change was made so the Vols could use their quickness against Furman’s manto-man defense. The strategy worked. Tennessee was able to get the fastbreak going early with the lineup change and jumped out to a quick 8-2 lead. Furman rallied, though, with a 13-4 scoring spree to hold a 15-12 advantage with 13:08 remaining in the first half. But two baskets by Howard Wood, a layup from Nash and two free throws from Reggie Johnson gave the Vols a 20-15 lead with just under 10 minutes left in the half. It was all Tennessee from there on out. “The way we came out and clicked and got our open shots to drop made all the difference in the world,” Nash said. “It gave us the feeling we weren’t going to lose.” Adding to Furman’s woes was a poor performance from the freethrow line. Furman’s starters entered the game shooting better than 70 percent from the line. Furman hit only 17-of-32 free throws for 53 percent. “We missed a potential 13 points at the line in the first half, and that was the difference in the game,” Furman coach Eddie Holbrook said. “Almost everything that went wrong in this game goes back to the free throws. Once we got behind, we got out of what we wanted to do.” Tennessee held a 40-29 lead at the halftime break, and Furman trimmed it down to 49-41. But three straight baskets by Wood capped a 9-2 run that broke the game open. Tennessee led by as many as 21 points in the second half. Wood was one of three Vols in double figures with 19 points. Reggie Johnson had a game-high 28 points along with 14 rebounds. Jonathan Moore led Furman with 22 points and 17 rebounds. NOTES: Future Vol assistant coach Michael Hunt (1994-97) was on the Furman team ... Furman’s berth in the NCAA Tournament came via its Southern Conference championship.

Tennessee (18-11) 75 Maryland (24-6) 86 March 8, 1980 • Greensboro Coliseum • Greensboro, N.C.

Foul trouble for Reggie Johnson spelled doom for Tennessee, as Maryland posted an 86-75 victory over Tennessee. “When you have a team that relies on one man to score and he gets in foul trouble, your team is in serious trouble,” Tennessee coach Don DeVoe said. “When Reggie doesn’t play, you don’t win.” Tennessee was rolling in the first half, and Johnson was nearly unstoppable. He scored 17 points in the game’s first 14 minutes to help Tennessee to a 29-18 lead. Johnson picked up his second foul of the game with just under three minutes left in the first half, but Tennessee still held a 40-32 advantage at the break. Johnson scored two buckets in the opening minutes of the second half, and the Vols led 46-39 with 16:23 left in the game. Then, in a matter of 10 seconds, Johnson got whistled for his third and fourth fouls and went to the bench with 15:06 left in the game. He didn’t score again. “I guarantee we got the short end of the officiating in the second half,” DeVoe said. “You don’t win in the tournament play when you get the short end. The two fouls on Johnson were the turning point.” Greg Manning pulled the Terrapins even at 50 with a rebound basket at the 13:26 mark in the second half. Maryland eventually pulled out to a 70-62 lead, but the Vols rallied back and pulled within 78-75 on a short jumper from Howard Wood with 45 seconds remaining. Manning then had back-to-back three-point plays for Maryland to squelch any Vol hopes for a victory. Gary Carter also had 21 points for the Vols along with eight rebounds. Bert Bertelkamp dished out a career-high 16 assists against only two turnovers in 39 minutes of action. Manning led Maryland with 28 points to pace four Terrapins in double figures. Albert King added 20, Buck Williams 19 and Ernest Graham 14. Maryland also shot a hot 63.2 percent from the field compared to 47 percent for Tennessee. NOTES: Maryland’s Albert King is the brother of former Vol AllAmerica Bernard King ... Maryland lost in the Regional Semifinals 74-68 to Georgetown.

VCU (24-5) 56 Tennessee (21-7) OT 58 March 15, 1981 • Charlotte Coliseum • Charlotte, N.C.

Dale Ellis drilled a 15-foot jumper at the buzzer to lift Tennessee to a 58-56 overtime victory over Virginia Commonwealth. “I just stood there after I shot that ball,” Ellis said. “That was the greatest feeling to make that shot.” Ellis’ shot was the only shot taken in the five-minute extra period. Virginia Commonwealth got the opening tip in overtime and stalled away the first half of the period. The Rams lost their chance at attempting a shot when Steve Ray forced Danny Kottak out-ofbounds. Tennessee then held the ball the second half of overtime and called a timeout with 19 seconds remaining. Michael Brooks passed the ball over to Ellis with five seconds left, and the sophomore from Marietta, Ga., hit the game-winner. Ellis was not the Vols’ first option to take the shot, though. “The ball was supposed to come to me, and I was supposed to pass it to Howard (Wood) in the corner,” Ellis said. “It was Howard that kept us in the game, and it’s usually (him) who takes the final shot.” The play was the same play the Vols ran at the end of regulation in attempt to make the game-winner. But Ellis threw an ill-advised pass to Steve Ray, and the Vols lost their opportunity to win at the end of regulation. Tennessee coach Don DeVoe told Ellis to go with the shot if the opportunity arose again. It did, and Ellis made good. “I don’t think there’s been a bigger shot in Tennessee basketball in a long time than the one Dale Ellis made,” DeVoe said. “We were able to make the play at the end because they gave us the opportunity by making a turnover.” Overtime initially looked unlikely, as Tennessee built a 14-point first-half lead and led 38-25 at the start of the second half on a dunk by Ellis. The Rams erased the last two points of the deficit with a bucket from Kottak with 2:24 left in regulation to put the score at 56-56, which eventually forced the overtime. Ellis finished with 22 points, and Wood scored 18. Greg McRay led the Rams with 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting. NOTES: Tennessee received a first-round bye ... Tennessee’s victory ended Virginia Commonwealth’s 16-game winning streak, which was the longest in the nation.

Tennessee (21-8) 48 Virginia (27-3) 62 March 19, 1981 • Charlotte Coliseum • Charlotte, N.C.

Virginia outscored Tennessee 27-4 over a 12-minute span in the second half en route to a 62-48 regional semifinal victory. Tennessee stayed close in the first half but could never take the lead against the Ralph Sampson-led Cavaliers. The Cavaliers shot 61.5 percent from the field during the first 20 minutes, but could only manage a 27-26 lead at the break. The Vols got things rolling early in the second half. Virginia made the first bucket of the half with a putback by Jeff Lamp. The Vols then outscored Virginia 10-2 over the next six minutes to take a 36-31 lead. Lamp then scored six of the game’s next eight points, with the other two coming from a jumper by Virginia’s Othell Wilson. The Cavaliers led 39-36 with 11:14 left in the game and never looked back. “We knew Lamp was their money player, but we didn’t realize it on the floor today,” Tennessee guard Michael Brooks said. “They had a great player who took control, made the great plays and got back and played defense. If he hadn’t taken control at that point, they wouldn’t have won.” Lamp scored a game-high 18 points. Jeff Jones and Lee Raker added 10 apiece for Virginia. Tennessee did slow down the AllAmerica Sampson by holding him to a season-low nine points and five rebounds. He had only one point and one rebound in the second half. The sagging defense to stop Sampson may have proved costly for the Vols. Sampson hit on only 4-of-13 shots, but the rest of the Cavaliers combined to hit 20-of-30 for 66.6 percent. “You may take Ralph out of the offense, but you leave yourself vulnerable somewhere else,” Virginia forward Terry Gates said. “Raker and Lamp have thrived off that.” NOTES: Virginia advanced to the Final Four before losing to North Carolina 78-65.

Michael Brooks hit six free throws for Tennessee in the game’s final minute to secure a 61-57 victory over Southwestern Louisiana. “We did some things right that assured the win,” Tennessee coach Don DeVoe said. “The key was having the lead going into the final five minutes. We had our best foul shooters in the game, and we kept the ball in the best man’s hands.” The Vols trailed 35-33 with 16:58 to play. Back-to-back buckets by Tyrone Beaman gave the Vols a 37-35 advantage, but a lay-up from Dion Brown for the Ragin’ Cajuns tied the game at 37. The Vols then outscored Southwestern Louisiana 14-6 over the game’s next nine minutes to hold a 51-43 lead with 6:39 left to play. Two free throws from Dan Gay and a lay-up each from Alford Turner and Johnny Collins off of Vol turnovers cut the margin to 51-49. Two free throws and a jumper from Dale Ellis opened the margin back up to 55-49 with just under four minutes to go. “We got the ball to Dale Ellis in the second half,” DeVoe said. “Those two turnovers were the turning point that allowed Southwestern Louisiana to come back. They got themselves back in the game because of their ability to persevere.” Ellis finished with a game-high 23 points, and Brooks finished with 16. Turner had 14 points to lead Southwestern Louisiana. “We expected Ellis to be outstanding, and he certainly was,” Southwestern Louisiana coach Bobby Paschal said. “We knew if they had the lead as the clock ran down, it would be difficult. They are an excellent free-throw shooting team. Near the end, we knew it was a calculated risk to foul, but there was no other way.” NOTES: Dale Ellis was named the SEC’s Player of the Year, and Don DeVoe was named the league’s Coach of the Year following the 1982 season.

Tennessee missed 4-of-5 free throws in the final 3:12, and Virginia’s Ricky Stokes hit two with 15 seconds remaining to lift Virginia to a 54-51 victory in a rematch of a 1981 NCAA Tournament game. Tennessee had made 10 consecutive free throws during the second half, but those shots didn’t fall during crunch time. Tyrone Beaman missed the front end of a one-and-one and then missed the back end of a one-and-one. Michael Brooks, who hit six straight in the final minute of the first-round Vol victory two days prior, then missed the front end of a one-and-one. Dan Federmann followed that with a miss. “When it got down to it, we choked at the foul line,” Tennessee coach Don DeVoe said. “We just did not do what it takes internally to win. Stokes just did what we could not do.” The one free throw the Vols did make in the game’s closing minutes gave them a 51-47 lead, but Ralph Sampson hit back-to-back buckets to pull the Cavaliers even at 51. Tennessee had a chance to regain the lead, but Federmann missed the front end of his one-andone. Stokes then made his two to give Virginia a 53-51 lead. “We had the game under control,” Tennessee forward Dale Ellis said. “All we had to do was hit the free throws. That has been a problem.” Tennessee had a chance to tie the game at 53, but the play never developed, and a long jumper by Brooks was off the mark. Jones then hit a free throw for the final margin of victory. “We had the right person taking the shot,” DeVoe said. “Michael was a little anxious. I didn’t think the shot was that poor, but we never got into our play.” The Vols got off to a fast start and opened up a 10-point lead at 24-14 in the first half behind 14 points from Brooks. Jones finished the first half by scoring five points in the final 21 seconds to pull Virginia to within 32-25 at the break. Virginia continued to rally in the second half, as Jones and Sampson sparked a 15-2 rally to give the Cavaliers a 43-40 lead with 10:41 to go. Brooks then scored eight straight points for Tennessee to give the Vols a 48-45 lead with 6:11 left in the game. NOTES: Virginia was upset by UAB 68-66 in the regional semifinals.

Michael Brooks hit two free throws with five seconds left in the game to secure a 57-56 NCAA Tournament victory over Marquette.

Dale Ellis and Jerald Hyatt had just missed opportunities at the foul line before Brooks gave the Vols their two-point lead. Kevin Woods then came up with a steal on Marquette’s ensuing possession and was fouled. He came up empty on the front end of a one-and-one. Doc Rivers countered by making one of his two free attempts on the next possession to cut the UT lead to 55-54 with 20 seconds left. Brooks then brought the ball up court and was tied up in front of the Tennessee bench. It looked as though Brooks was going to be called for a five-second violation, but instead was fouled by Rivers. Brooks then sank the two free throws. Marquette’s Kerry Trotter hit a lay-up at the buzzer to provide the final score. “I wanted the ball,” Brooks said. “I knew they would have to foul me because time was running out. I felt I could ice the game.” Brooks’ free throws were his most obvious contribution to the Vol victory, but he also turned in a stellar performance on the defensive end. He held Rivers to 10 points and ran the Volunteer offense for 40 minutes. Rivers only hit 4-of-13 shots as Brooks guarded him most of the game. “Michael sank those two free throws, but defense won this game,” Tennessee guard Tyrone Beaman said. “He played probably his best defensive game. He came through for us in the clutch.” Tennessee trailed 43-38 with 11:38 remaining in the game, but a three-point play by Willie Burton, a bucket from Dale Ellis and two more free throws by Burton gave the Vols a 45-43 lead with 9:15 left. Tennessee then hit 10-of-15 free-throw attempts the rest of way including the two from Brooks. The only field goal the Vols scored in the last 10 minutes was a long jumper from Brooks. NOTES: The victory over Marquette was the 100th for Don DeVoe at Tennessee ... Tennessee was only one of six teams to appear in the past five NCAA Tournaments, with the other teams being Arkansas, Georgetown, Iowa, Louisville and North Carolina.

1983 NCAA Mideast Region — Second Round #8 #1

Tennessee (20-12) 57 Louisville (30-3) 70 March 20, 1982 • Roberts Municipal Stadium • Evansville, Ind.

Louisville used an 11-2 run midway through the second half to halt a Tennessee rally and post a 70-57 victory over the Vols. The Cardinals used their pressure defense in the first half to force 10 Tennessee turnovers, which enabled Louisville to open up a 34-27 halftime lead. A 15-foot jumper from Lancaster Gordon and a layup from Charles Jones pushed the lead to 42-30 with 15:26 left in the game. The Vols then mounted a rally. Two buckets apiece from Dale Ellis and Willie Burton keyed a 13-3 scoring run for the Vols as they pulled to within 45-43 with 10:26 on the clock. Louisville then called timeout to regroup. The Cardinals responded with an 11-2 rally to open the lead back out to 56-45 with just under six minutes left in the game. Tennessee could get no closer than eight points the rest of the way. “We had worked so hard to get that close,” Tennessee point guard Tyrone Beaman said. “They get a couple of quick, easy baskets and it took a little bit out of everybody.” Ellis was held to 13 points, nine below his season average, on 6-of-13 shooting. Louisville’s man-to-man defense made him work hard to get the ball, and the Cardinals’ fast-break offense continually put pressure on the Vols to get back on defense. “This is as tired as I’ve ever been on the court all year,” Ellis said. “This is one of the worst shooting games ever. I missed a lot of easy shots.” Michael Brooks led the Vols with 18 points, and Beaman added 10. Louisville was led by Milt Wagner’s 15 points and Scooter McRay’s 10. NOTES: The Mideast Regional Semifinals were held at Stokely Athletic Center ... Louisville advanced to the Final Four before losing 94-81 to Houston ... Ellis finished his career as the third all-time leading scorer at Tennessee behind Ernie Grunfeld and Reggie Johnson.

1989 NCAA East Region — First Round

#10 #7

Tennessee (19-11) 68 West Virginia (26-4) 84 March 16, 1989 • Greensboro Coliseum • Greensboro, N.C.

Tennessee fell behind by 10 points less than five minutes into the game and never recovered as West Virginia cruised to an 84-68 victory. It was the Vols’ first NCAA Tournament appearance in six years, but the Mountaineers made UT’s visit a short one. West Virginia scored on its first nine possessions, and its defense frustrated the Vols throughout the game. “West Virginia got the upper hand about as quickly as you can in an NCAA Tournament game,” Tennessee coach Don DeVoe said. “It was obviously a game where we didn’t do many things right. West Virginia did a lot of things right, and the scoreboard bore that out.” Tennessee shot 29 percent from the floor in the first half and fell behind as many as 15 points. The Vols battled back to go into the break trailing 35-23, but the opening minutes of the second half once again put the Vols in a deep hole. The Mountaineers scored the first six points of the second half, which keyed a 12-4 run that opened the lead to 47-27 with 16:51 left in the game. Tennessee got back to within 57-45 on a 3-pointer from Doug Roth, but West Virginia answered with two buckets. Tennessee never got closer than 12 points the rest of the game. West Virginia shot a blistering 77 percent from the field in the second half on 17-of-22 shooting and finished the game at 62 percent. Tennessee finished the game shooting 38 percent from the field. “It looked like to me the guys were playing a little tight at both ends of the floor,” DeVoe said. “I know it’s the NCAA (Tournament), but that’s when you should bring your game up to another level.” Dyron Nix led the Vols with 22 points, and West Virginia native Greg Bell added 14. Starting guard Clarence Swearengen, who was averaging 12 points a game, played only 14 minutes and did not score. NOTES: Tennessee had won five consecutive first round NCAA Tournament games before losing to West Virginia ... West Virginia lost to Duke 70-63 in the second round.

NCAA TOURNAMENT BOX SCORES 1998 NCAA West Region — First Round

#9 #8

Illinois State (25-5) OT 82 Tennessee (20-9) 81 March 12, 1998 • Arco Arena • Sacramento, Calif.

Illinois State’s Dan Muller scored the winning basket off a pass from Kyle Cartmill with 1.3 seconds left to lift the Redbirds to an 82-81 overtime victory over Tennessee. The Vols had taken an 81-80 lead on C.J. Black’s layup off a pass from Tony Harris with 15.4 seconds left before the game-winning bucket by Muller. The Vols struggled in the second half with foul trouble and poor shooting. They finished the game shooting 36.7 percent from the field and had nearly a five-minute stretch in the second half without scoring. A free throw by Harris at the 7:13 mark finally broke the scoring drought, but the Vols found themselves down 66-58. The Vols battled back to tie the score at 70 on Black’s rebound and basket with 2:53 left. Tennessee took a 72-70 lead on Black’s slam dunk off a pass from Brandon Wharton, but Illinois State tied the score on Steve Hansell’s layup with 53 seconds left. That gave the Vols the ball back with a chance to win. They worked the shot clock down to 17 seconds and the game clock down to 34.6 before calling a timeout. Wharton took a 3-pointer from the top of the key with 22 seconds left, but missed and Illinois State rebounded. The Redbirds had their own chance at a game-winning shot, but Hill missed a 14-foot jumper. The Vols rebounded and threw a desperation pass, but it was on to overtime. Tennessee had opened up a nine-point lead in the first half but could not put the Redbirds away. Back-to-back 3-pointers from Rico Hill and Steve Hansell at the end of the half enabled the Redbirds to pull within 41-38 at the break. NOTES: Illinois State’s starting backcourt during the season did not play due to injury ... Skipp Schaefbauer broke his leg in the MVC tournament; Jamar Smiley didn’t start because of back problems ... Smiley got into the game, but immediately came out writhing in pain and was taken for treatment ... This was Tennessee’s first appearance in the NCAA Tournament in nine years ...

1999 NCAA East Region — First Round

#13 #4

Delaware (24-6) 52 Tennessee (21-8) 62 March 12, 1999 • Charlotte Coliseum • Charlotte, N.C.

Tennessee’s offense was sputtering, but the Vols turned up their defensive pressure to post a 62-52 victory over Delaware. It was the Vols’ first NCAA Tournament win in 16 years. The Vols shot only 33 percent from the field but held Delaware to 30 percent shooting. Forward Mike Pegues did score 23 points for Delaware, but it came on 7-of-23 shooting. Tennessee’s perimeter defense held the Blue Hens starting perimeter players to 2-of-13 shooting from 3-point range. “As long as we play defense like we did today, we have a chance to win, no matter how bad we shoot the ball,” Tennessee guard Brandon Wharton said. Wharton scored all 16 of his points in the second half after missing seven shots in the first half, including an uncontested layup after a steal. “I just kept telling the players ‘Continue to play good defense, and the shots are going to fall. Believe me. Trust me. They’re going to fall,’” Tennessee coach Jerry Green said. Two free throws from Pegues gave Delaware a 20-14 lead with 3:45 left in the first half. Tennessee then reeled off 11 unanswered points to open a 25-20 lead with 35 seconds left in the half. Pegues hit a jumper at the first half buzzer to pull the Blue Hens to within three at the break and then opened the second half with a 3-pointer to tie the game at 25. Tennessee then got the offense rolling with a layup from Wharton, a 3-pointer from Tony Harris and a C.J. Black dunk. The Vols led 32-25 and never trailed again. “We were almost too ready to play,” Green said. “Survive and advance. That’s what it’s all about.” NOTES: Tennessee’s win snapped Delaware’s 13-game winning streak ... Delaware’s point total and field-goal percentage were its lowest of the season ... Delaware won the America East Conference Tournament to earn its bid to the NCAA Tournament.

1999 NCAA East Region — Second Round

#9 #4

SW Missouri State (22-10) 81 Tennessee (21-9) 51 March 14, 1999 • Charlotte Coliseum • Charlotte, N.C.

Poor shooting proved costly for the Vols as Southwest Missouri State gave Tennessee its worst loss ever in NCAA Tournament action with an 81-51 final. Tennessee shot 29.5 percent from field and hit only 6-of-29 3-point attempts for 20.7 percent. “Their defense didn’t give us many open looks,” forward Isiah Victor said. “And when they did, we weren’t making those shots either, so it really didn’t matter.” Southwest Missouri State, on the other hand, shot 51.9 percent from the field and hit 9-of-22 3-pointers. It was a 3-pointer at the end of the first half that seemed to douse all hopes of a Vol victory. Ken Stringer banked in a 25-footer at the buzzer to give the Bears a 36-26 halftime lead. Southwest Missouri then opened the second half by scoring on nine of its first 10 possessions. The lead expanded to 58-33 with 12:38 to play. “I’d say they played a perfect ball game,” Tennessee coach Jerry Green said. “The more shots they hit, the more confident they got and the less we got. It seemed all the basketball gods were on their side and not on ours.” Tennessee never led in the game, as the Bears jumped out to a 9-2 lead 3:10 into the game. The Bears got two easy buckets off of Tennessee turnovers caused by a full-court press. It was all uphill from there. NOTES: Southwest Missouri State lost to Duke in the Regional Semifinals ... Southwest Missouri State won the Missouri Valley Conference to earn its trip to the NCAA Tournament ... A Missouri Valley Conference team (Illinois State) also eliminated the Vols from the 1998 NCAA Tournament.

Tony Harris made two free throws with 10.8 seconds to play to help Tennessee seal a 63-58 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette. Louisiana-Lafayette cut UT’s lead to two at 60-58 on Brett Smith’s jumper with 45 seconds to play. With the shot clock running down, Harris made a move to the basket and appeared to turn the ball over to Smith. But Smith was called for a reach-in foul that sent Harris to the line with 15 seconds to play. He missed the front end of the one-and-one, Ron Slay got the rebound and was flagrantly fouled by Smith with 13 seconds to go, allowing Tennessee to keep the ball after the free throws. Slay missed both free throws, and UT in-bounded the ball to Harris, who was quickly fouled. Harris hit both shots to seal the victory. Tennessee trailed most of the game. The Vols were down 48-42 with just under 10 minutes left to play. Slay, a freshman from Nashville, then got the Vols’ offense rolling. Slay scored 11 of his 15 points in the final 8:15, including a coast-to-coast drive that he converted into a three-point play. Slay’s drive cut what had been a six-point Louisiana-Lafayette lead to 48-45 with 8:15 remaining. “When Ron took it all the way, I felt we had ‘Mo’ (momentum) back on our side and had it going the right direction,” UT coach Jerry Green said. Slay’s 8-footer inside the Cajuns’ variation of a 2-3 zone defense broke a 54-54 tie at the 4:07 mark. He hit a similar shot to make it 60-56, Vols, with 1:48 to play. “We struggled offensively, but our defense kept us in the game,” Green said. “We did just exactly what we had to do down the stretch to win the game.” Harris and Slay led Tennessee with 15 points each. C.J. Black added 14 while shooting 10-of-10 from the foul line, and Vincent Yarbrough scored 11. Lonnie Thomas led the Cajuns with 19 points.

Tennessee capitalized on an ankle injury that limited Connecticut point guard Khalid El-Amin to one basket in 13 minutes and posted a 65-51 victory. The Vols made school history by winning two games in the NCAA Tournament for the first time. The Vols trailed only once, at 4-2, and had the upper hand, 32-22 by halftime. The Huskies cut a 12-point deficit to 38-34 when ElAmin hit his only basket, a 3-pointer, with 13:36 to play. Vol freshman Jon Higgins answered with his own 3-pointer 14 seconds later, igniting a 16-4 run that put the game away. Connecticut went 6:15 without scoring during the major portion of that stretch, missing six consecutive shots and turning the ball over twice. One was a Higgins steal and break-away that ended up being juggled and dished to Vincent Yarbrough for a dunk and subsequent free throw. The three-point play restored the margin to 44-34. Tony Harris led the Vols with 18 points and shot 9-of-12 from the foul stripe. Yarbrough got 11 of his 14 in the first half, helping shoot the Huskies out of a zone defense with three 3-pointers. C.J. Black added 13 points, 10 in the second half, as UT penetrated UConn’s defense for dunks and free throws. The Vol defense also stood tall by converting seven steals into 14 points and holding the Huskies to 38.6 percent shooting. UT shot 44.7 percent from field which was up from 33.3 percent in the first round victory. “We played awfully good,” Tennessee coach Jerry Green said. “That could have been as good as we played all year. Time and again, making the extra pass - or passes - produced good looks against the UConn defense.” Albert Mouring scored 17 points to lead the Huskies, and El-Amin was limited to three points, 13 below his season average.

Ed Cota spurred a late second-half comeback, then he and freshmen Joseph Forte and Julius Peppers hit six straight free throws in the final 34.9 seconds, giving North Carolina a 74-69 victory over Tennessee in the South Regional semifinals. The Tar Heels’ winning rally kicked into top gear when Forte drilled a 3-pointer and Jason Capel hit a layup to get the Tar Heels within 64-63. Cota made a running jumper in the lane and then hit another floater to make it 66-64 with 2:00 left. Tennessee’s scoring drought, which left the Vols without a field goal since 7:15, ended with 13.6 seconds left when Tony Harris made his first basket of the night, a 3-pointer. “I thought for about 35 minutes, we played awfully well,” Tennessee coach Jerry Green said. “Then we started trying to make hard plays, and it wasn’t just one person, it was about four or five different people. And while we were making hard plays, they were making baskets.” Tennessee got off to a slow start as North Carolina led by seven early. Then, the Vols’ speed and athleticism carried them to a 22-7 run and a nine-point lead. Capel kept the Tar Heels close by scoring the last five points of the first half, pulling North Carolina to within 39-36. “I can’t really put it into words,” Vincent Yarbrough said of the loss. “I thought we had the game won, but they just out-played us in the last four minutes. We came out of the last timeout and still thought we had the game, but they made some shots and that was the game.” C.J. Black led the Volunteers with 17 points, Yarbrough had 13 and Ron Slay added 12. Isiah Victor had 11. Forte scored a game-high 22 for the Tar Heels, while Brendan Haywood and Cota each scored 11, followed by Kris Lang with 10.

NOTES: Louisiana-Lafayette earned its bid to the NCAA Tournament by winning the Sun Belt Conference.

NOTES: The 51 points was a season-low for the Huskies ... Connecticut was the defending NCAA champion, having won the 1999 NCAA Tournament with a 77-74 title-game victory over Duke.

NOTES: North Carolina defeated Tulsa 74-69 in the Regional Finals to advance to the Final Four ... The Tar Heels then lost to Florida, 59-71, in the national semifinals in Indianapolis.

NCAA TOURNAMENT BOX SCORES 2001 NCAA Midwest Region — First Round #9 #8

Charlotte (22-10) 70 Tennessee (22-11) 63 March 16, 2001 • University of Dayton Arena • Dayton, Ohio

Poor shooting in the second half was too much for Tennessee to overcome, as the Vols fell 70-63 to Charlotte in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The Vols finished the game shooting 42 percent from the field but shot only 31 percent in the second half. The Vols also hit only 1-of-7 free-throw attempts and 1-of-11 3-point attempts in the second half. Free-throw shooting plagued the Vols the entire game as they made only 7-of-18. The Vols missed four free throws late in the second half, including the front-end of two one-and-ones. “We just couldn’t make a shot,” UT head coach Jerry Green said. “From a coach’s perspective, it’s frustrating and you feel like you missed an opportunity. But again, those same guys are the ones over the last several years who have made those free throws.” Tennessee opened the game by hitting 10 of its first 17 shots to take a 26-18 lead. Foul trouble proved costly though, and Charlotte was able to come back and tie the game at 43 at the half. The opening of the second half was the mirror opposite of the first half. The Vols scored only four points in the first 10:30 of the second half and were down 52-50 after a 3-point shot by Jon Higgins with 9:20 to play. By that point, Tennessee had hit only two of 12 shots in the half while committing nine turnovers. Charlotte eventually opened up a 59-50 lead with 6:59 to play. The Vols battled back and had the ball down 66-63 with just under 40 seconds left in the game. Tony Harris’ 3-point attempt was off the mark, and the 49ers got the rebound. Jobey Thomas made four free throws in the final 24 seconds to seal the victory for Charlotte. NOTES: Tennessee was seeded eighth and Charlotte was the No. 9 seed ... Charlotte lost to No. 1 seeded Illinois in the second round ... UT fell to 8-14 all-time in the NCAA Tournament ... The Vols made their first appearance in the Midwest Region ... UT’s 191 blocked shots on the season ranked second all-time in school history.

2006 Washington D.C. Region — First Round #15 #2

Winthrop (23-8) 61 Tennessee (22-7) 63 March 16, 2006 • Greensboro Coliseum • Greensboro, N.C.

Dane Bradshaw found a streaking Chris Lofton with an inbound pass with 2.9 seconds left, and Lofton buried a jumper over Winthrop’s Torrell Martin to give Tennessee a 63-61 victory to advance to the second round of the Washington D.C. Regional. “It was a good look, but he was all up on me,” Lofton said. “It still felt good.” The frantic finish capped a heart-pounding game that featured nine ties and eight lead changes, the final one coming on Lofton’s shot. His were the only points in the final 2:42, as both teams squandered chances to advance to the second round. “It was a real gut check for both teams,” UT head coach Bruce Pearl said. “Both teams were physically exhausted at the end of that game.” The Vols had a couple of opportunities in the final seconds. Point guard C.J. Watson missed a 3-pointer, but Tennessee retained possession when Bradshaw chased down a long rebound on the other end of the court. Pearl called a timeout to set up the play, with Bradshaw throwing it in. The first option was for a lob pass to 6-foot-7 Andre Patterson, but when he was covered, Bradshaw looked for Lofton. “I thought they were going to come to me the whole time, unless we got an easy shot, of course,” Lofton said. His was anything but, and after it went in with four-tenths of a second on the clock, the Tennessee players mobbed Watson. Winthrop coach Gregg Marshall used his final timeout, and James Shuler’s long pass bounced off the backboard to Craig Bradshaw. Bradshaw’s shot clanged off the rim, allowing the Volunteers to hang on. The Volunteers survived despite its All-SEC backcourt of Watson and Lofton shooting a combined 8-of-24 from the field and 3-of-15 from 3-point range. It was Tennessee’s frontcourt of Major Wingate and Patterson that carried the Vols. Wingate had a team-high 15 points, and Patterson had a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds. “You can definitely make the case that this was good for us, the way it turned out,” Dane Bradshaw said. “Coach says the teams we play obviously will continue to get better, but the situation we were in won’t get any tougher.” VISITORS: Winthrop 23-8 REBS FG 3PT FT O-D-T PF TP A TO Bl St Min 00 James Shuler f 4-12 1-3 1-3 1-5-6 1 10 3 1 0 1 35 33 Phillip Williams f 1-2 1-1 3-4 1-0-1 4 6 1 1 1 1 23 05 Craig Bradshaw c 5-17 1-8 1-2 2-5-7 3 12 3 4 2 1 37 10 Chris Gaynor g 4-7 2-4 0-0 0-3-3 1 10 4 0 0 1 33 12 Torrell Martin g 5-11 2-7 2-3 8-5-13 1 14 1 5 0 2 34 11 Michael Jenkins 1-4 0-1 0-0 0-0-0 1 2 1 0 0 1 11 22 Otis Daniels 1-2 0-0 3-4 2-0-2 1 5 0 1 0 0 14 24 De’Andre Adams 0-0 0-0 0-0 0-1-1 1 0 1 2 0 0 7 31 Taj McCullough 1-1 0-0 0-1 1-1-2 2 2 0 0 0 0 6 TEAM 1 Totals 22-56 7-24 10-17 15-20-35 15 61 14 15 3 7 200 TOTAL FG% 3-Pt.

2006 Washington D.C. Region — Second Round #7 #2

Wichita State (26-8) 80 Tennessee (22-8) 73 March 18, 2006 • Greensboro Coliseum • Greensboro, N.C.

Wichita State went on a 7-0 run to break a 65-all tie and the Shockers never looked back, defeating Tennessee 80-73 to advance to the Sweet Sixteen in Washington D.C. Karon Bradley hit a short jumper to break the tie, and on the next possession, with the shot clock winding down, P.J. Couisnard stepped back and launched a straightaway 3-pointer that swished through the net giving the Shockers a lead they wouldn’t relinquish. Wichita State advanced to the NCAA Tournament’s round of 16 for the first time in 25 years. Chris Lofton - who hit a last-second shot to beat Winthrop 63-61 in the first round - and eventual NBA point guard C.J. Watson each scored 20 points to lead the Volunteers. Major Wingate finished with 15 points, seven rebounds and five blocks. “We’ll be back,” Pearl said. “I’m very, very proud of these young men. I can’t tell you how many people have written or called and said how much they enjoyed this basketball team. This Tennessee basketball team will go down as one of the all-time best, and this was the group that got it started.” Tennessee led 63-58 on a pair of free throws from Watson with 5:42 left, but the Shockers rallied to tie it at 63 on a 3-pointer from Sean Ogirri. After the teams traded baskets, Bradley drained a jumper from just outside the lane for a 67-65 lead with 2:12 left. Couisnard followed with the stepback 3-pointer over Dane Bradshaw for a 70-65 lead with 1:05 left. Ogirri closed the spurt with two free throws for a 72-65 lead with 50.5 seconds left. Tennessee twice cut the deficit to three points in the final seconds. But the Vols got no closer, as Wichita State went 8-for-10 at the foul line in the final minute to seal it. “I think we were in a position where we had them where we wanted them,” said Bradshaw, who had two points and three steals. “I guess we just didn’t execute. I’m not sure really what happened.” NOTES: Wichita State lost to eventual Final Four participant George Mason 63-55 in the Sweet Sixteen.

#12 #5

Long Beach State (24-8) 86 Tennessee (23-10) 121 March 16, 2007 • Nationwide Arena • Columbus, Ohio

Tennessee scored early, often and then scored some more as the Vols matched the most points ever scored by a team in a first-round NCAA Tournament game in its 121-86 dismantling of Long Beach State. Chris Lofton led the way with 25 points. JaJuan Smith added 24 points, Ramar Smith 22, Duke Crews 12 and Wayne Chism 10 points, while Dane Bradshaw dished out a career-best 11 assists. “It really was (fun),” Lofton said. “We’re used to playing like that. When a team plays (uptempo) like that, we get excited. It was just a fast-paced game, and we put the ‘fast’ back in ‘fast break.’” Both teams came in averaging 80 points - putting them among the top 11 in the nation - so it wasn’t a shocker that baskets came in bunches. “I like an identity for a program. This is our identity,” UT coach Bruce Pearl said. “We’ve never finished second in (any league in) scoring in 14 or 15 years I’ve been a head coach. I enjoy being uptempo and being aggressive in transition. We’ll put four or five guys on the floor that can score, and they’ve got a lot of freedom.” Lofton led the way, as the Volunteers shot 59 percent from the field and made 14 of 27 3-pointers. He hit half of his eight shots behind the arc and JaJuan Smith hit 4-of-6. Each team hit seven 3-pointers in a wild opening half that featured the Volunteers racing to a 29-12 lead in the opening 7 1/2 minutes. They did it with precision shooting, their full-court press and trapping pressure. Lofton keyed the defense, with two steals leading to a pair of layups in a 5-second span. Ahead 57-45 at the break, the Volunteers ran off 12 of the first 14 points in the second half - seven by Lofton - to build the lead to 69-47. From then on, the points mounted. The Volunteers reached 90 with 10 minutes left. “We knew we had to score,” Ramar Smith said. “We knew it was going to be a high-scoring game, and we came out and scored.” VISITORS: Long Beach State 24-8 REBS FG 3PT FT O-D-T PF TP A TO Bl St Min 15 Sterling Byrd f 1-4 0-0 0-0 0-3-3 2 2 2 2 0 0 27 44 Dominique Ricks f 1-2 0-0 0-0 2-1-3 3 2 0 0 0 0 10 01 Kejuan Johnson g 8-16 5-8 3-3 1-3-4 3 24 0 2 1 1 35 20 Kevin Houston g 6-15 2-4 3-4 0-1-1 4 17 3 3 0 0 33 55 Aaron Nixon g 8-15 4-8 3-3 0-5-5 2 23 4 2 0 1 28 02 Louis Draby 3-3 1-1 0-0 1-1-2 3 7 2 1 0 0 25 10 Arturas Lazdauskas 0-1 0-0 0-0 0-1-1 1 0 0 1 0 0 4 11 Artis Gant 0-0 0-0 0-0 1-0-1 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 21 Mark Dawson 3-7 0-0 1-2 4-2-6 4 7 0 2 2 0 28 22 Tim Island 0-0 0-0 0-0 0-0-0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 33 Travon Free 2-2 0-0 0-2 0-0-0 1 4 0 0 0 0 4 50 Andrew Fleming 0-0 0-0 0-0 0-0-0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 TEAM 0-2-2 Totals 32-65 12-21 10-14 9-19-28 23 86 11 13 3 2 200 TOTAL FG% 3-Pt.

2007 South Region — Second Round

#5 #4

Tennessee (24-10) 77 Virginia (21-11) 74 March 18, 2007 • Nationwide Arena • Columbus, Ohio

JaJuan Smith scored 13 of his 16 points in the second half, Ryan Childress scored all 10 of his points in the second half and Chris Lofton made six consecutive free throws in the final seconds as the Volunteers held off Virginia 77-74 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament to propel fifth-seeded Tennessee (24-10) to the round of 16 for the first time since 2000. “When you reach the Sweet Sixteen at the University of Tennessee with the way we’ve had to rebuild, you’ve made a special place in history for yourself,” Vols veteran Dane Bradshaw said. The Vols had to hold on for dear life to advance past the second round. After taking a 10-point lead midway through the second half, Virginia came roaring back, cutting the lead to two after an Adrian Joseph basket. But in the end, the Volunteers advanced by having their best player make the easiest shot of all. Lofton, the Southeastern Conference’s Player of the Year, hit all six of his free throws in the last 27.7 seconds, keeping Tennessee ahead. He finished with 20 points. “I started forcing shots,” said Lofton, who was an uncharacteristic 4-of-16 from the field but 9-of-10 on free throws. “Coach (Pearl) kept telling me to be patient. Luckily, I got to the foul line and came through.” Virginia still had a chance as they got the ball back after Lofton’s last made free throw, but point guard Sean Singletary missed an open 3-pointer with 1 second left. In the opening minute, Reynolds and Lofton turned it into a game of H-O-R-S-E. Reynolds hit a 3-pointer from the top of the key on Virginia’s first possession, and Lofton responded with a longer trey a minute later. The challenge was on, and Reynolds was on his game. He was at his best during an 18-3 spurt that gave Virginia a 36-25 lead. Then, it was Tennessee’s turn. JaJuan Smith had a three-point play and a steal-and-layup during a 15-2 spurt early in the second half that put Tennessee ahead for good 54-44. At that point, Singletary brought Virginia back, cutting the lead to 61-59. Smith ended the comeback by hitting a 3-pointer, then taking a charge from Singletary.

2007 South Region — Regional Semifinal

#5 #1

Tennessee (24-11) 84 Ohio State (33-3) 85 March 22, 2007 • Alamodome • San Antonio, Texas

With talented freshman center Greg Oden mired in foul trouble, the top-seeded Buckeyes fell behind by 20 points before halftime. But senior Ron Lewis and fellow freshman Mike Conley bailed out Oden and lifted Ohio State past Tennessee, 85-84, in the semifinals of the NCAA South Regional. “We played about as well in the first half, I think, as we can play,” Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl said. “We’re terribly disappointed. We’ve proven we can beat some of the best teams in the country. We’ve also proven we can come close to beating some of the best teams in the country.” Conley had nine of his 17 from the foul line - including the winner with 6.5 seconds left. But Conley missed a second shot, giving Tennessee one last chance. Ramar Smith grabbed the rebound and went all the way to the rim with Conley defending him. Smith’s shot went up just before time expired. Then it was Oden to the rescue, swatting the ball into the Volunteers’ cheerleaders, while Smith landed hard in front of the Tennessee bench. After trailing 49-29 in the final minute of the first half, the Buckeyes got a little back with a three-point play in the final second before intermission. Then came a 16-5 spurt, keyed by six Conley free throws. Fittingly, his pair of foul shots tied it at 64. Things went back and forth from there, with 6-9 Ryan Childress hitting two 3-pointers for Tennessee and Conley making a threepoint play but also missing a pair of free throws. Ohio State tied it at 79 with 2:44 left on David Lighty’s eighth 3-pointer of the season. It was a biggie because the Buckeyes never trailed again. SEC Player of the Year Chris Lofton scored 24 points to lead Tennessee. He was 6-of-13 on 3-pointers, including one that tied it at 82 only seconds after Lewis had put Ohio State ahead with a trey of his own. Smith scored 15 points and JaJuan Smith added 14 points and eight rebounds. Childress had 12, hitting 4-of-5 behind the arc. Tennessee avoided Oden from the start by shooting 3-pointers over him, taking a slim lead. Then, he got his second foul with 10:48 to go in the half, and the Vols began attacking inside and out. . NOTES: Ohio State advanced all the way to the national championship game, where it fell to No. 1-seeded Florida 84-75.

NCAA TOURNAMENT BOX SCORES 2008 East Region — First Round

#15 #2

American (21-12) 57 Tennessee (30-4) 72 March 21, 2008 • BJCC Arena • Birmingham, Ala.

Tennessee avoided a massive first-round upset in the NCAA Tournament, breaking away from American 72-57 in the first round of the East Regional. Believing the Volunteers deserved better than the No. 2 seed given them, guard JaJuan Smith wrote “No. 1 seed” on his orangeand-white sneakers. Facing a team making its NCAA Tournament debut, it was hardly a walkover. Sluggish at the start and outhustled nearly the whole way, the second-seeded Vols turned it on late to avoid the upset. Ahead 53-51 with 5:45 left, Tennessee held the 15th-seeded Eagles to only one basket the rest of the way. “We just weren’t playing our game,” Smith said. “We were a little sloppy, but we turned it on at the end.” Smith finished with 19 points. Wayne Chism added 16 and helped Tennessee wear down the Eagles. Tied at 40 with 11 minutes left, Tennessee finally put together a 10-0 run with Smith hitting a big 3-pointer. A pair of treys by Brian Gilmore gave American its late chance. “I thought they came in confident. I thought they came in knowing that they could play with us,” UT head coach Bruce Pearl said. Garrison Carr, the MVP of the Patriot League Tournament, poured in 24 points. The sharpshooter tried to keep American close all by himself, taking on the whole Tennessee team in a game of HO-R-S-E. The Vols threw five different defenders at him, hoping to weave through a staggered series of hard picks. “One person can’t guard him. He comes off eight or nine screens,” All-American Tennessee guard Chris Lofton said. “I had to take a break in the first half. I was dead.” Tennessee relies on a controlled brand of chaos, but they struggled at the start, and Lofton was a non-factor. Starting UT point guard Ramar Smith sat out the first half. The Eagles threw their bodies around more than the Vols and held a 39-27 rebounding edge, including 18-6 on the offensive end.

Butler (30-4) 71 Tennessee (31-4) OT 76 March 23, 2008 • BJCC Arena • Birmingham, Ala.

Tennessee scrapped, pounded, grabbed and survived. The second-seeded Vols mostly ditched the glamorous 3-pointer and got physical in the second-round, moving on with a 76-71 overtime victory over Butler. Vols senior JaJuan Smith hit four straight free throws in the final 13.6 seconds of overtime, and the Vols advanced to their second consecutive Sweet Sixteen. Tennessee scored 38 points in the paint, had five players with multiple fouls by halftime and made only two 3-pointers in the final 40 minutes against the Bulldogs. “Fatigue was a factor for them at some point, because of the way we guarded them,” UT coach Bruce Pearl said. “We really played great defense tonight and did what we needed to do on the boards.” The Vols scored six straight points inside after the Bulldogs took their first lead in the final two minutes of overtime, including point guard Ramar Smith’s basket with 27 seconds left to make it 72-68. Butler’s Pete Campbell followed a missed shot to make it 72-70 with 16 seconds left. JaJaun Smith then made both free throws. Wayne Chism led foul-plagued Tennessee with 16 points, while Tyler Smith added 15 and eight rebounds and JaJuan Smith had 11. J.P. Prince had nine points, seven rebounds, five assists -- and six of the Vols’ 20 turnovers. The Bulldogs, who couldn’t catch up to UT for the first 37-plus minutes, took their first lead on A.J. Graves’ short jumper in the paint to make it 68-66 with 1:46 left in overtime. Ramar Smith and Chism both scored inside as UT reclaimed the lead inside the final minute. Tyler Smith then blocked Graves from behind, and Chism won the scramble for the loose ball and called timeout with 33 seconds left. Ramar Smith then scored, coming up with a big play after losing his starting job to J.P. Prince, an Arizona transfer who made his first start for Tennessee. Graves led Butler with 21 points. Campbell, who made eight 3-pointers in the first round, added 12 points and Willie Veasley had 11. The Vols tried to set the tone early, sinking three 3-pointers and forcing five turnovers in the first five minutes en route to a 21-8 lead.

Louisville (26-8) 79 Tennessee (31-5) 60 March 27, 2008 • Charlotte Bobcats Arena • Charlotte, N.C.

One of the most successful seasons in Tennessee basketball history came to a close as third-seeded Louisville downed the second-seeded Volunteers 79-60 in in the East Regional final. Earl Clark scored 17 points and had 12 rebounds, and UL head coach Rick Pitino’s mix of defenses made life miserable for SEC Champion Tennessee. After Louisville’s two blowout wins eariler in the tournament, Pitino’s signature zone and pressure limited the high-scoring Volunteers to 34-percent shooting. “I’ve been coaching a long time and never has the tempo of the game been dictated so much by an opponent,” UT coach Bruce Pearl said. “We usually dictate tempo. We attacked the pressure and we had an opportunity to hurt the press, but we just didn’t finish.” Louisville nearly blew all of a 16-point first-half lead, only to take control midway through the second half. All-American guard Chris Lofton scored 15 points for Tennessee, but was 3-for-15 in his final game as a Vol. “They wouldn’t leave me,” Lofton said. “It was tough to get my shot off. They’re a great defensive team.” After a slow start, Tennessee got within 37-36 early in the second half thanks to its own defensive pressure, which forced 20 turnovers. But then the springy Clark, who had come on in the NCAA Tournament, had a driving layup, hit a baseline jumper and converted a three-point play during a 13-5 run. Louisville’s defense didn’t allow Tennessee to get back in it again, and the Cardinals hit all nine free throws over the final five minutes to keep Tennessee at bay. JaJuan Smith added 12 points for UT, and Tyler Smith had 11. “This doesn’t take much away from the finest season in the history of Tennessee basketball,” Pearl said. “No team has accomplished the things these guys accomplished this year, and I’m awfully proud of them.” NOTES: Louisville lost to No. 1-seeded North Carolina 83-73 in the Elite Eight.

NCAA TOURNAMENT BOX SCORES 2009 East Region — First Round

#9 #8

Tennessee (21-13) 75 Oklahoma State (23-11) 77 March 20, 2009 • University of Dayton Arena • Dayton, Ohio

After 40 hard-fought minutes of basketball, Oklahoma State outlasted Tennessee to earn a 77-75 decision in the first round of the NCAA Tournament at University of Dayton Arena in Dayton, Ohio. “We played a lot of good basketball out there today, and we played against a really good team, one of the better teams we played in a few weeks, and we’re right there,” UT head coach Bruce Pearl said. Cowboys point guard Byron Eaton put his team ahead for good after a three-point play with 7.2 seconds showing on the clock. Eaton drove to the basket for a layup and made the ensuing free throw after being fouled by Vols forward Tyler Smith. With one final shot for the Vols, Smith came off a ball screen and launched a 3-pointer, only to see it rim out at the buzzer. “It’s a shot that he takes and makes a lot at the end of practice,” Pearl said. “I didn’t want anybody else taking that last shot.” Smith led the Big Orange with 21 points, including a perfect 10for-10 performance at the foul ine. Redshirt freshman guard Cameron Tatum followed with 12 points, and junior Wayne Chism added 11 points. Paced by Eaton’s 20 points, Oklahoma State also received a lift from Marshall Moses’ double-double performance of 16 points and 11 rebounds. Tennessee heads back to Knoxville after its fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament bid under Pearl. NOTES: Oklahoma State lost to No. 1-seeded Pittsburgh 84-76 in the second round.

San Diego State (25-9) 59 Tennessee (26-8) 62 March 18, 2010 • Dunkin’ Donuts Center • Providence, R.I.

#14 #6

2010 Midwest Region — Second Round

Ohio (22-15) 68 Tennessee (27-8) 83 March 20, 2010 • Dunkin’ Donuts Center • Providence, R.I.

Melvin Goins made his fourth 3-pointer with 19 seconds left after San Diego State cut the deficit to one point, and Tennessee held off the Aztecs 62-59 at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, R.I., to advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Goins and J.P. Prince scored 15 points apiece for the sixth-seeded Volnuteers on coach Bruce Pearl’s 50th birthday. “That was a very defensive-minded game,’’ Pearl said. “Both teams can really defend. The way we won the game was the way the kids have been winning all year long — really resilient. We didn’t play very well. San Diego State had a lot to do with that.’’ D.J. Gay had 16 points for No. 11 seed San Diego State, which won the Mountain West Conference. Future NBA standout Kawhi Leonard scored 12 with 10 rebounds for SDSU, but he missed a well-guarded 3-pointer at the buzzer that would have tied it. Making their fifth straight tournament appearance, the Vols did their best to erase the memory of last year’s first-round loss to Oklahoma State — the only time they’ve failed to win a game in the tournament under Pearl (a native of nearby Sharon, Mass.). Up six before Gay’s 3-pointer made it 53-50 with 4:15 left, the Vols made it a five-point lead on Bobby Maze’s free throws. Kelvin Davis hit a pair of free throws and Billy White made a jumper for San Diego State to make it 55-54 with just under two minutes left. Brian Williams and Gay exchanged free throws, then J.P. Prince missed a pair of foul shots with 47 seconds left and the Vols still nursing a one-point lead. But Wayne Chism grabbed the rebound, and Tennessee ran another 28 seconds off the clock before Goins hit a 3-pointer to make it 60-56. “I think the shot clock was at about seven seconds,’’ said Goins, who was right in front of the Tennessee bench when he got the ball. “Even before I got the ball, I heard coach yelling, ‘Stick, stick, stick.’ That gave me confidence to shoot.” Goins then fouled Gay during a 3-point attempt, and the San Diego State guard made all three foul shots. But Chism made two free throws at the other end with 7.4 seconds left and then hustled to contest Leonard on the final shot, Goins was 4 for 5 from 3-point range, and the Vols went 8 for 17 from beyond the arc.

J.P. Prince scored 18 points and Scotty Hopson had 17 to lead sixth-seeded Tennessee to an 83-68 victory over Ohio at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, R.I., helping the Volunteers reach their third Sweet Sixteen in four years. “J.P. Prince was the best player in this regional,’’ UT head coach Bruce Pearl said. “He played as well as any player in the tournament this weekend.’’ Tennessee earned a matchup with No. 2-seed Ohio State in St. Louis. The Volunteers have never gotten past the third round, including losses to Ohio State and Louisville under Pearl in 2007 and 2008. “I’ve been there twice already and came up short twice,” said Wayne Chism, who had nine points and 12 rebounds. “I’m happy to be back on that stage again, I can’t wait to get there.” Chism joined former Tennessee All-Americans Chris Lofton and Dale Ellis as the only Vols ever to score 100 career points in the NCAA Tournament, as his nine-game total stands at 101. Tommy Freeman scored 23 points for Ohio, which was the lowest-seeded team to get out of the first round. But he didn’t get enough help from Armon Bassett and D.J. Cooper, the guards who starred in a first-round victory over third-seeded Georgetown before combining for 23 points on seven-for-23 shooting against Tennessee. “The plan from the jump was to stop those guards,’’ UT junior center Brian Williams said, “and then dominate underneath and on the boards.’’ The Vols did just that, outscoring the Mid-American Conference champions, 58-12, in the paint and winning the battle of the boards 4133. The Bobcats trailed by six points midway through the second half before the Volunteers went on a 10-1 run to put it away. The Volunteers took the lead with an 18-2 run that started with 12 minutes left in the first half, turning a two-point deficit into a 14point lead. Ohio kept firing 3-point shots — they attempted 26 in the game, making 10 — but never got any closer than 50-45. “Our top five guys aren’t necessarily going to win in this tournament, but our 10 can,’’ said Pearl, whose bench held a 28-0 advantage over the Bobcats. “This is a team with many dimensions, and when we defend and rebound we’ve got a chance to win.’’

2010 Midwest Region — Regional Semifinal

Ohio State (29-8) 73 Tennessee (28-8) 76 March 26, 2010 • Edward Jones Dome • St. Louis, Mo.

Brian Williams scored the go-ahead basket on a tip-in with 32 seconds left, Bobby Maze converted a pair of late free throws and J.P. Prince blocked a desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer, leading Tennessee past Ohio State 76-73 in the Midwest Region semifinal and into the NCAA Tournament’s round of eight for the first time in UT’s 101-year hardwood history. Wayne Chism finished with 22 points — all but four in the second half — and 11 rebounds for the sixth-seeded Vols, who pulled out a back-and-forth tussle after going 0-5 in its previous regional semifinal chances. As the final buzzer sounded, Tennessee players let out screams of joy and sprinted onto the court. Ohio State’s Evan Turner — the National Player of the Year — finished with 31 points, 21 in the second half, but the rest of the Buckeyes were just 3-of-16 from the field in the second half. Jon Diebler, so big for Ohio State in the first two rounds, shot 1-of-7 from 3-point range. William Buford scored 15 points, and David Lighty added nine for OSU, which had won four of its previous five meetings against UT, including a matchup in the 2007 regional semifinals. After making only three baskets in the first half, Turner surpassed that output in the first 5:12 of the second half. Lighty finally gave him some help, scoring on a layup to put Ohio State in front 59-56 with 7:37 to play. But Tennessee responded with a 12-4 run, getting contributions from four different players. Chism gave the Vols a 72-70 lead with 1:39 to play. Turner came up with yet another big play, swishing a 3-pointer from just beyond the arc with less than 42 seconds to go. But Williams, a big, bruising center, tipped in Prince’s miss on a layup. Turner missed at the other end and Kyle Madsen lost the ball under the basket. With less than 13 seconds left, Turner fouled Maze, who after a timeout, coolly blew a kiss to someone in the Tennessee fan section. He made both free throws, giving Tennessee a 76-73 lead. Turner had two more opportunities — and he had knocked down last-second shots before. But this time, he missed from deep in the left corner, then got the ball back. His last shot from near the top of the key didn’t even get to the rim, as Prince managed to elevate, extend his arm and make an athletic block. “Turner got a little bit of a look, but it wasn’t very good,” Pearl said. “Now we’re going to go see if we can live every kid’s dream.” VISITORS: Tennessee 28-8 FG 3PT FT REBS PF TP A TO Bl St Min 04 Chism, Wayne f 9-16 1-3 3-4 5-6-11 1 22 1 3 1 0 35 33 Williams, Brian c 4-5 0-0 1-2 4-8-12 3 9 1 2 0 0 32 03 Maze, Bobby g 4-9 0-2 2-2 2-1-3 1 10 2 1 0 1 19 30 Prince, J.P. g 6-13 0-0 2-3 2-0-2 3 14 6 3 1 2 31 32 Hopson, Scotty g 1-5 0-3 1-1 2-2-4 3 3 1 5 0 0 23 20 Hall, Kenny 0-1 0-0 0-0 1-0-1 1 0 0 0 0 0 4 21 Goins, Melvin 2-8 0-2 0-0 1-0-1 3 4 4 0 0 1 22 22 Pearl, Steven 0-1 0-0 0-0 1-0-1 3 0 0 1 1 1 8 23 Tatum, Cameron 3-4 2-3 3-3 0-0-0 1 11 0 0 0 1 14 24 Bone, Josh 1-2 1-2 0-0 0-1-1 1 3 0 0 0 0 12 TEAM 2-3-5 1 Totals 30-64 4-15 12-15 20-21-41 20 76 15 16 3 6 200 TOTAL FG% 3-Pt.

2010 Midwest Region — Regional Final

Michigan State (28-8) 70 Tennessee (28-9) 69 March 28, 2010 • Edward Jones Dome • St. Louis, Mo.

Tennessee outshot Michigan State, equaled the Spartans — statistically, the nation’s best rebounders — on the boards and had one fewer turnover. “The numbers look pretty good,” Volunteers coach Bruce Pearl conceded, glancing at the box score. But defensive lapses at the end of both halves during the Midwest Regional Final at the Edward Jones Dome doomed the Vols, as MSU advanced by a score of 70-69. “This one won’t go away... forever,” Pearl said. Tennessee led 41-37 as the last seconds ticked off before intermission. After a couple of missed shots, MSU retained possession with one second left when the ball went out of bounds under its basket. Forward Draymond Green cut through the lane, took a pass from guard Durrell Summers and laid in a shot at the buzzer, halving the Vols’ halftime edge. After surviving a 14-1 Spartans run and charging back from an eight-point deficit in the second half, UT forged a 69-69 tie when Scotty Hopson made the first of two free throws with 11 seconds left. Hopson missed the second, setting up the final, decisive, sequence. Spartans guard Korie Lucious corralled the rebound, hustled into the frontcourt then dished to Green near the top of the circle. Green wheeled to his right and spied forward Raymar Morgan under the basket, waving his arms frantically. Green whipped a pass to Morgan, who was fouled by UT senior guard J.P. Prince with 1.8 seconds remaining. Morgan made the first free throw, then purposely clanked the next. The Vols called a timeout with 1.6 seconds left, but Prince’s half-court heave at the buzzer fell short. “We didn’t get back defensively,” Pearl said. “They got the ball way too close to the basket, got way too good a look.” Despite the wrenching defeat, Pearl declared that Tennessee took a “major step” by reaching its first-ever Elite Eight and posting the second-highest win total in school history (28). “We came to this regional to win it and get to the Final Four,” Pearl said. “But I’m proud of my seniors and proud of our basketball program.” NOTES: Michigan State lost to Butler 52-50 in the Final Four.

2011 West Region — Second Round

Michigan (21-13) 75 Tennessee (19-15) 45 March 18, 2011 • Time Warner Cable Arena • Charlotte, N.C.

Tennessee’s NCAA Tournament run ended early as the Volunteers were dealt a 75-45 loss to eighth-seeded Michigan at Time-Warner Cable Arena in the second round of West Region action. It was a tale of two halves for the Volunteers. During the first 20 minutes of play, UT shot 45 percent from the floor on 9-of-20 shooting and went 10-of-12 from the free-throw line. Trailing 33-29 at halftime, the game remained close until a stretch of Tennessee turnovers fueled a 16-0 Michigan run. The Vols shot a humble 26 percent from the floor in the second half and only managed to get to the stripe four times. Michigan pulled away, outscoring UT 42-16 after shooting 18-of-28 in the second half. To Michigan’s credit, the undersized Wolverines out-rebounded Tennessee 36-26 and outscored UT in the paint 46-22. Both marks were nails the Vols had hung their hat on all year. After a perfect 6-of-6 shooting performance in the first half, Tennessee Freshman All-American Tobias Harris went a scoreless 0-of-5 shooting in the second half. Still, the Dix Hills, N.Y., native led the Vols with 19 points. “We just didn’t play with heart out there,” Harris said. “Michigan came out and made shots and we just did a terrible job of trying to cover them. On the offensive end, we rushed too many shots. Basically, just quit.” The loss was the eighth in the last 12 games for Tennessee, which ended its season at 19-15. It marked the first time UT finished below 20 wins during head coach Bruce Pearl’s tenure. NOTES: The game marked the end of Bruce Pearl’s six-year tenure as head coach, as he was relieved of his duties March 21, 2010 ... The game also was the first in NCAA Tournament history in which a team won a game despite failing to make a free throw; UM attempted just one ... Michigan lost to No. 1-seeded Duke 73-71 in the third round.

2014 Midwest Region — First Round

Iowa (20-13) 65 Tennessee (22-12) OT 78 March 19, 2014 • UD Arena • Dayton, Ohio

Tennessee advanced to the NCAA Tournament Second Round with a thrilling 78-65 comeback overtime victory over Iowa in the First Four on Wednesday night at UD Arena. The 11th-seeded Vols will take on #6 seed UMass on Friday at 2:45 p.m. That game will air on CBS. Tennessee (22-12) has won six of its last seven games, with the lone loss coming to No. 1 overall seed Florida in the SEC Semifinals. Josh Richardson was tremendous after a slow start as he was 0-of-5 in the first half. The junior finished with 17 points -- all after halftime. Jordan McRae led the team with a team-high 20 points. Jarnell Stokes posted his 20th double-double of the season with 18 points and 13 rebounds. The Hawkeyes (20-13) were led by a pair of reserves that entered the game averaging a combined 9.6 points. Center Adam Woodbury scored a career-high with 16points while Peter Jok added 10 points, his best game in three months. Iowa’s leading scorer Roy Devyn Marble (17.3 ppg) was limited to just seven points on 3-of-15 shooting from the floor. After Marble sent the game to overtime, the Vols took over in overtime. Stokes opened the scoring with a 3-point play to put Tennessee up 67-64. McRae’s bucket put the Vols up by five with 3:55 left. Tennessee took its first lead of the game on a 3-pointer by Antonio Barton with 3:07 left in the game. That put the Vols up 59-57. Iowa quickly answered as Marble converted a 3-point play nine second later. That put Iowa up 60-59. Stokes gave the Vols back the lead at 61-60 on two free throws with 2:40 left in the game. Iowa came right back as Woodbury laid one home with 2:24 on the clock. Maymon powered up with scored with 54 seconds left to but Tennessee up 63-62. He was fouled and missed the free throw, but the rebound went off Iowa and the Vols retained possession. Stokes was fouled with 25.5 left in the game and proceeded to make the first of two free throws. Marble sent the game to overtime with a jumper in the paint with 17.5 on the clock. That tie the game at 64 all. Down by as many as 12 in the first half and three at the half, the Vols tied the game with just over five minutes elapsed in the second half. Richardson tied the game at 37 on a 3-pointer with 14:37 left in the game. Richardson had the play of the game as he drove baseline and slammed one home with 10 minutes left in the game. That brought the Vols within three at 47-44. The Vols continued to come within a possession over the next four minutes. McRae’s 3-pointer with 6:40 left cut the deficit to one point at 53-52. Tennessee trailed by as many as 12 in the first half, but closed the gap at the half as the Hawkeyes led 29-26 at intermission. Iowa broke out of the gates scoring the game’s first eight points as Tennessee missed its first seven shots from the floor. The Vols finally got on the scoreboard with 6:02 elapsed in the game on an Armani Moore runner.

PRESS CLIPS


Vols living up to Martin’s Tougher Breed mantra By John Brice for Tennessee Insider Nov. 2013

The ease of Jeronne Maymon’s smile belies the grueling work Tennessee’s senior forward has just finished on the basketball hardwood. Like meandering through a haunted house and then laughing about the frights. Was it pushing cotton towels, planted beneath palms and feet, up and down the court? Wearing weighted vests during some drills? Hoisting weighted plates during others? All the way back from a knee injury that robbed him of his 2012-13 season, Maymon shakes his head and smiles wide as a backboard at the Vols’ hardwood house of horrors; he knows it’s worth it as Tennessee further adopts the orange-collar approach of head coach Cuonzo Martin. “Those towel pushes, that just jumped into the top five toughest. We actually use dumbbells on the court sometimes. We use those, especially when we do defensive slides, and those are pretty tough. ‘Man-inthe-hole’ is another pretty tough drill,” said Maymon, who returns to a veteran Tennessee squad that brings back four starters from its postseason a year ago. “The dumbbells really consist of being in a defensive position with your arms straight out and either a 10or a 25-pound dumbbell. You hold it straight out, and you have to side-step around the perimeter of the court until coach says stop and whoever breaks first, you know, that’s usually when he picks on you. It usually goes on for a while. “Man-in-the-hole is you’re guarding somebody four times and then you’ve got to go guard three offensive players who are in a position to score the ball, and if you don’t get stops then you’ve got to keep going. So it’s kind of like you’re on an island by yourself. It says a lot about a program that takes on its coach’s mindset, especially the mindset of coach Martin. He’s all about toughness and heart and being dedicated

to your craft. So that’s what we try to do; we try to just buy into everything he’s preaching and just go for it all.” Martin’s third iteration of Tennessee Vols tips off its season with expectations aplenty. In addition to the versatile Maymon, gritty forward Jarnell Stokes complements the team’s front line on the heels of leading the Southeastern Conference in rebounding. Guard Jordan McRae returns as, arguably, the top backcourt scorer in the SEC, if not the nation. Within this team construct is the undeniable image of Martin, the former Purdue standout, cancer survivor and staunch tough guy. “Toughness has got to be what we are as a program. That’s our brand, our way of life,” said Martin, with 22 of his first 39 wins as UT coach coming in SEC contests. “Not only from a physical standpoint, but a mental-toughness standpoint as well. The preparation of going through tough situations, on and off the court. We talk about being a tougher breed, of being in every game. My thermometer and temperature gauge is how we perform on the road in a hostile environment, because that takes mental and physical toughness. I think that’s the biggest key.” So the Vols embody that “tougher breed” approach in all they do. The workouts, which oftentimes begin long before sunrise. The standards to which coaches hold players and players hold each other. It can hardly be surprising that Tennessee also employs some boxing workouts from time to time, or that the Vols are embracing their lacing up the sneakers like a pugilist tying on gloves. They proudly wear T-shirts with orange boxing gloves that read “Let’s Rumble.” “That came from the coaching staff. We’ve done boxing workouts as a team. It just shows our toughness and our tenacity,” Maymon explained. “How we get after things. Especially on the court, we’re always pushing and shoving each other and testing our brothers on the practice court. The sport of boxing is a good translation to what we do in practice and the weight room and other things in life. “It would be hard to find a tougher team in America

than the University of Tennessee men’s basketball program. That’s what we hang our hat on. You’ve got to find something to hang your hat on, and we hang our hat on toughness.” Proof of said toughness is undeniable across Martin’s first two campaigns in Knoxville; his teams held foes to fewer than 65 points per game both seasons and also ranked second each year in the SEC in rebounding margin. Moreover, Tennessee’s fabulous closing stretches to those seasons are foundational building blocks; the Vols carry a combined 17-2 mark in second-half play into the 2013-14 season after finishing each of Martin’s first two seasons as the SEC’s most dangerous team. Martin’s Vols join only Kentucky as owners of wins against every other league brethren during that same time. “I think it was both years the teams started to show that toughness; you’re talking about a team that first year that was able to win eight of nine games in league play to close,” Martin said, “That’s a tough thing to do, including beating a tough and talented Florida team on the road. Then to win nine of 10 down the stretch this past year… that’s not easy after slow starts. It takes a lot of mental preparation, focus, fight and the ability to regroup and continue to get better as a whole to get to do that.” Maymon also knows the practices make games a welcome place of refuge. “Practice, I would say, is hell. Especially my first year playing under coach Martin. It was hell. Just being thrown into the fire like that, not knowing what to expect. Him throwing the weight vests out there, us doing the resistance training, the towel pushes,” Maymon explained. “We do bear crawls and all different types of things before we even do drills. All the type of resistance work we do without the ball. Then when you get the ball, the rest is easy. I’d say it’s hell. Hell.” Maymon praises the steady approach of not only Martin but his entire coaching staff for the Vols’ ability to perform their level best while also making clear they must avoid any sputtering starts this season.


“The way I think about, like, everything is so much different than it used to be. The most important thing he’s taught me is how to be a man.’’ Jordan McRae Tennessee’s schedule features early-season opportunity games against Xavier, UTEP, Wichita State, NC State and Virginia before the onset of SEC play. “Coach Martin has a very steady personality. He doesn’t waver. You always know what you’re going to get, so I think that’s what really keeps us on balance,” said Maymon, who drew national attention to the Vols’ program this preseason and showcased his toughness with a starring role alongside a boa constrictor in a video promoting Maymon’s journey back and the UT brand. “So if (coach’s) personality wavered and sometimes he was happy and sometimes he was sad and he made us do drills off his emotions, then we’d be unbalanced. But he’s very stable, and we know what we’re getting and what we’re getting into every day. So it’s pretty easy for us to adapt to his personality. “It takes a lot of mental toughness; coming down the stretch we usually win the majority of our games. Just being with this coaching staff and really paying attention to detail, as time goes on we get better. Like when you start off with something and it’s kind of new to you, as you keep chucking away at it you’re going to continue to get better at it. So I think that’s what we do. This upcoming season, we just want to do it throughout the whole course of the year. Start off strong and finish strong.” There are plenty of pieces for the Vols to do just that, both because of returning players and yet another fine recruiting job by Martin & Co. Josh Richardson, Armani Moore and Derek Reese all carry with them key contributions from a year ago into the coming season. Freshman signees Darius Thompson and Robert Hubbs III enter their college careers fresh off Tennessee All-State selections and state championship tournament appearances. Antonio Barton arrives in Knoxville for one season after graduating early from Memphis, where the hard-nosed 6-foot2, 180-pound guard made 95 career appearances for the Tigers. “I think that toughness is the biggest key; I don’t know any sport — professional or otherwise — I don’t know anybody who says every player on the roster is tough. It can be skill guys, bigs, guards,” Martin said. “If three or four guys have got that element of toughness, you’ve got a chance. And then other guys can have other skill-sets. But you need three to four guys in key positions that have that level of toughness, to defend, compete and demand respect. Being able to say ’No.’ in tough situations off the court. That’s a level of toughness. Who has the influence in the locker room, which players do guys look to? That’s also a level of toughness, in my opinion.” Martin’s biggest offseason challenge? He recalls asking players to hoist 30,000 — yes 30,000 — shots in their own time. “One thing I challenged guys with this summer was to see if they could get 30,000 shots up in a twomonth span. It was optional, and a tough thing to do,” Martin said. “But that’s really working on your individual game. A lot of times, guys go into the gym for two hours and may not get anything done. Getting up early is what we do. We have some mandatory practices in the morning. That takes a level of toughness to do that on a consistent basis.

“None of them got to 30,000 shots, but a lot of them got close. That means there’s still room to grow. And again, that’s not an easy thing to do. That part was all optional. They still had workouts, class and other commitments. It means they had to give up a lot. Guys came close but didn’t get it. Close is not good enough. It’s getting the job done. That’s the key.” Targeting players who possess the physical and mental ability to get it done in Martin’s demanding program is an element of the Vols’ recruiting process. “When you see it from a high school guy it can be pretty obvious sometimes,” Martin said. “He’s scoring or getting 10 or 12 rebounds or steps up and makes big free throws late in games. But you really don’t know it until you get them in the program. We’ve been around some very talented players who were not what we thought they were from a toughness standpoint, and then we’ve been around some we thought it would take some time and that toughness happens right away.” Martin now knows without a doubt this Tennessee team wants to earn and desperately craves the opportunity to proclaim and wear that label of toughness. “The one thing about it, every guy wants to be considered tough; they like the results behind it on the floor but also the stuff we do in the weight room,” Martin said. “Guys love to have a level of toughness, like the shirts we’ve got with the boxing gloves and ’Let’s rumble.’ We enjoy that, we embrace that. We want to be as tough as we can be on the basketball floor and as nice as we can be off the basketball floor.”

The evolution of the #OrangeMamba How Cuonzo Martin’s “Tough Love” Changed Jordan McRae By Wes Rucker for Tennessee Insider Nov. 2013

Cuonzo Martin and Jordan McRae both stand approximately 6 feet, 6 inches tall. That doesn’t mean Tennessee’s head basketball coach and All-SEC guard have always seen eye-toeye, though. It’s not uncommon for a coach to push a young, prideful player to the point where the player questions whether he can play for that coach. Martin spent months pushing McRae well beyond that point. “It wasn’t even like, ‘I can’t play for this man,’” McRae said. “It was worse than that. It was, like, ‘I can’t play this game anymore.’” A simple glance at McRae’s career statistics tells quite a story. He played in just 10 games and averaged 1.8 points as a freshman, and that production has swelled from 8.6 points per game as a sophomore to 15.7 as a junior. And McRae’s production in Southeastern Conference play last season was even more impressive — impressive enough for several analysts to consider him the league’s best player and for Big Orange fans to nickname him “Orange Mamba,” comparing his scoring prowess to that of NBA great

Kobe Bryant (who is known as the Black Mamba). Nearly every measurable statistic on the floor shows McRae’s progression as a player, but none of those numbers reflect the biggest change. “He’s not even the same guy he used to be,” Vols junior guard Josh Richardson said. In order to build McRae the basketball superstar, Martin had to painstakingly tear down the player’s mercurial mindset and replace it with the steely structure that stands in its place today. And most of that, as McRae now freely admits, had absolutely nothing to do with basketball. “The way I think about, like, everything is just so much different than it used to be,” McRae said. “The most important thing he’s taught me is how to be a man.” Nothing is impossible Martin’s humility prevents him from expanding on the topic, but just about anyone who really knows Tennessee’s third-year basketball coach will tell you that he’s a tremendous judge of character. Above and beyond the game of basketball, Martin is simply a good person who surrounds himself on and off the floor with like-minded people. And Martin has always really liked Jordan McRae — which is surprising, considering the way McRae occasionally acted when the coach first arrived in Knoxville. The first meeting between Martin and McRae was an introduction. One of the very next meetings was a suspension. McRae and a since-departed teammate were asked to attend a meeting on campus. It wasn’t a basketball meeting, though, so the two longtime friends thought that meant it wasn’t mandatory. That was a mistake. “I’ll never forget it,” McRae said. “The next morning, coach Martin asked us, ‘Why didn’t y’all go?’ We really didn’t have an excuse. I think (the other guy) might have just, you know, come up with some excuse or something, but I said, ‘I just didn’t go.’ “Coach Martin was like, ‘OK, I’ll see y’all tomorrow at 5 a.m.’ So I’m thinking ‘What? Five a.m.? Is this guy serious?’ He was serious. The next three days, we were in there running at 5 a.m., and I thought, ‘I don’t know if I’m going to do this.’ “In my head, I just kept thinking, ‘Where did they find this guy?’ Where did he come from? Who does this?” And that was just the beginning. The way McRae puts it, former Vols coach Bruce Pearl’s discipline was “about an eight” on a scale of 1-to-10, and Martin’s is “at least a 15.” Players were no longer allowed to wear hats indoors. If practice or workouts started at 6 a.m., everyone was expected to be dressed and ready by 5:45, or they were late. Players were required to sit in the first three rows of every class, and every tardiness to class — even a one- or two-minute tardiness — was punishable by three or four days of running. Some punishments were worse than others. If Martin really wants to send a message, the person who breaks a team rule sits on the bench while everyone else on the team runs his punishment sprints for him. “It felt like boot camp when he first got here,” McRae said. “I mean, I’d never even heard of other teams having to do stuff like this. I didn’t think it was possible.” McRae didn’t know this at the time, obviously, but the impossible has always been possible with Martin. Tough by necessity Martin doesn’t enjoy discussing some of the specifics from his childhood, and there are reasons for that. Those reasons can be summed up in three simple words, though: East St. Louis.


And here are four words to sum up East St. Louis: Only the strong survive. Like many kids who grew up in one of America’s toughest areas, Martin learned that toughness was the only way to get what he wanted out of life — which, in short, was a better situation for his family. And his mother wouldn’t let him cut any corners to do it. That’s one of the reasons she insisted he go to Purdue and play for legendary coach Gene Keady, who to this day considers Martin arguably the toughest player he ever coached. Martin arrived at Purdue and was told his knees were so bad that he’d never last four years, but he became an All-Big Ten star. Martin was told as an underclassman that he wasn’t a good enough shooter to attempt 3-pointers, and he left college as one of the best 3-point snipers in Big Ten history. Martin’s professional basketball career ended and his life was threatened with cancer, and he knocked the cancer into remission, went back to college to finish his degree and joined Keady’s staff an assistant coach. Martin arrived at Missouri State in 2008, and he took a five-win team with barely more than five healthy scholarship players and turned it into the 2011 Missouri Valley Conference champions. There’s no magic formula for any of that. Martin just works. Hard. And he demands the same from everyone around him. He’s not an easy man to impress, especially when it comes to toughness. “Sometimes Coach Martin will say some outrageous stuff, and you’re, like, ‘No, you didn’t do that,’” McRae said. “But, I mean, you never say that. You just think it. I don’t know if anybody’s ever going to say that to him. “But then, somewhere along the line, you kind of start believing it. You’re like, ‘Maybe he did do that.’ You’re never sure if you believe it, but you want to believe it, and it makes you want to believe you can do the same thing.” Then you have to prove to Martin that you can do it, though. And that’s the hard part. Competitive to a fault McRae, like many 18- or 19-year-old kids, arrived in Knoxville thinking he was the baddest dude on the block. A highly touted prospect from the fertile Peach State, the former Liberty County High School star chose Tennessee over national powerhouse Indiana and several other major NCAA Division I programs, and he expected to walk right into Knoxville, start every game, score tons of points and leave college early for a multi-million-dollar future in the NBA. “Well yeah, that didn’t happen,” McRae now says with a big laugh. It wasn’t always a laughing matter, though. McRae spent much of the first 20-orso years of life fighting a losing battle with his intense competitive spirit. His smile seems longer than his 7-foot, 2-inch wing span, and most of the time he’s a laid-back, free-spirited, guy. But anytime any kind of competition starts, McRae’s mindset completely changes. “I hate losing,” McRae said. “I mean, I really, really hate losing.” The youngest child of Cornelius and Paulette McRae has always been a bit different from his older siblings. There was always structure in the house — his older sister recently retired after an eight-year

McRae wasn’t allowed to play basketball as a highschool freshman because of academic issues — which are well in the rearview mirror now, considering he’s on track to graduate from Tennessee in December (in less than four years) with a degree in Sociology — but he stormed onto the scene as a sophomore and became a big name on the national AAU circuit shortly thereafter, compliments of a few dominant efforts in various camps. “I started getting all these offers, and my parents didn’t know what was going on,” he said. “They were like, ‘What? Is he really that good? Are you sure?’ I mean, they didn’t know anything about basketball at the time.” After nearly committing to Indiana on a visit to Bloomington, McRae visited Knoxville and pledged his career to the Vols. He loved both campuses, both coaching staffs and the players on both teams, but Tennessee and the SEC were much closer to home than Indiana and the Big Ten. “Everything about Tennessee was cool,” McRae said. “I saw what Chris Lofton did, and what Scotty Hopson was doing, and I was like, ‘I could do that.’ The funny thing is, Scotty was supposed to be gone (to the NBA) when I came here, but that didn’t happen. And that kind of made me mad at first.” Hopson and several other talented guards kept McRae on the bench for his first season, and that went about as smoothly as his pine-time in All-Star youth baseball. During one particularly memorable practice heading into a game against longtime SEC archrival Kentucky, McRae decided he didn’t want to run the Wildcats’ offense as the scout-team point guard and would rather just score a bunch of points on the Vols’ starters — and update everyone in the gym with his point total after every shot he made. Tough love Then Martin arrived on Rocky Top. And he saw McRae’s mindset a bit differently. The Vols’ new coach knew his talented guard was rough around the edges, but he looked beyond that and saw an inner drive and competitiveness that he loved. He saw a potential alpha dog. He just had to get that dog to heel. Richardson, one of the Vols’ most laidback personalities, laughingly suggested that McRae is “the kind of guy you’ve got to be rough with sometimes.” Martin has never had a problem with that. “As a coach, there are different ways to reach different guys,” Martin said. “I approach Jordan a little differently than I’ll approach another guy. That certain type of coaching is what he needs, and what he responds to. “You might see us on the bench and think we’re arguing with each other in certain cases. But he needs a certain level of emotional energy — ‘Come on, let’s go.’ He responds to that, because he has a big heart, and he wants to be successful. “I enjoy coaching him.” Perhaps that sounds simple. It wasn’t. Martin’s mentoring of McRae was anything but simple. “I used to think I was a lot better than I really was,” McRae said. “But then coach Martin basically just came out and told me, ‘You’re not that good. You’re not as good as you think you are.’ It’s one thing Jordan McRae to just hear that, but then to go out there and actually see it — you know, turning it over, taking bad shots, just over and over

stint in the United States Air Force — but Jordan has always been the most volatile of the McRaes. And he’s always been the worst loser of the bunch. “I honestly think it comes from my brother,” McRae said of his quick temper. “He used to always beat me in video games, and I could never beat him, and he would tease me right after the games. Sometimes it would get to the point where I would cry, and my mom would be like, ‘If you’re going to act like this, you don’t need to be playing the game.’ “But to this day, I don’t like losing in anything. To this day, if I play a video game and lose, I’m going to be mad.” McRae’s competitive spirit, combined with his seemingly unending levels of energy naturally led him to sports, even though no one else in his family had ever played them, unless you count his sister’s hiccup-quick track and field career. “You know me, man. I can run all day. I just don’t get tired,” said McRae, whose constant rocking and fidgeting became more and more animated over the course of a nearly hour-long interview. Success on the field found McRae soon after he picked up a ball — any ball, really. But McRae’s hatred of losing would occasionally cause him to take that ball and go home. Averse to sitting McRae was initially better at baseball than basketball, and he was named to his recreational league’s All-Star team on the diamond on multiple occasions. “I loved baseball, but one of those years where I made the All-Star team, I didn’t play, like, ever,” McRae said. “Every player was supposed to play, but I swear I didn’t even play a full inning in that All-Star thing. “So I said, ‘I’m never playing baseball ever again.’” And he didn’t. But he didn’t stop growing, either. In fact, he kept getting taller and taller, and eventually his eighthgrade basketball coach realized the tall kid he had at center was faster and more agile than any of his guards.

“He has a way of really making you think about everything you’re doing outside of basketball. He treats a custodian the same way he’d treat the president.


and over — that’s really a wakeup call. “My whole sophomore year was a wakeup call.” The morning after McRae’s sophomore season ended, Martin — who poked and prodded McRae throughout that entire season — called the player to let him know things were about to get even tougher. “Coach Martin, he was so hard on me, but he never gave up on me,” McRae said. “The day after we lost that last game, he called me that next morning and said, ‘The choice is yours. Next year you can get better and play more, or you can stay the same and you won’t.’ He told me about everybody he’d recruited that was coming in, and how good they were. He’s just sitting there naming all these guys, and they’re all guards, and I’m thinking, ‘How many guards are we going to have on one team?’ “I just thought, ‘I’m not about to be sitting on this bench next year.’” And although McRae began his junior season on the bench — he was the Vols’ sixth man for the first several games — he ended that season as arguably the SEC’s best player. As time progressed and McRae’s confidence started to soar — several 30-plus-point games tend to have that kind of impact — Martin lengthened the leash on his budding star. He stopped benching him for every little mistake. Once McRae showed he could be trusted, and that he could take over games and lead his team in a positive way, the coach backed off just a bit. But not all the way, of course. “Some things never change,” McRae said. The morning after McRae dropped 34 points on LSU in February, Martin — as he so often does — called the player at approximately 6 a.m. and asked him to come by the office as soon as possible. “So I head over there, and he shows me film of the one time I got mad at the ref, and the ref was asking for the ball, and I didn’t give to him,” McRae said. “He showed me that clip, then he looked right at me and said, ‘All right, have a nice day.’ I mean, that was it. So even then, I could have a great game on offense, but he’d find something bad about my defense, or about what I was doing on the bench. “If I ever got mad when I came out of the game, he found it. If I wasn’t happy on the bench, he found it. It was always something. I’m sitting there in the middle of the year, having all these good games, and it never stopped with him. I mean, he was getting on my nerves. “But now it’s like, I’m 22-years-old, and I’m a man, and he’s one of the biggest reasons for that.” McRae said some of the biggest lessons he’s learned from Martin have come off the court, but they’ve helped him become a better player because he’s become a better person. The same kid who used to chase girls around campus now refuses to eat until the women in the room have eaten, because Martin and his players never head to the buffet line until the coaching staff’s wives have filled their plates. The same kid who used to sleep just a few hours some nights is often tweeting goodnight to the world well before midnight. The same kid who could occasionally catch up on sleep and stay in bed until noon now wakes up before 8 a.m., even on the Vols’ off-days, because Martin taught him that’s what men do. McRae said Martin has “reprogrammed” him. “Coach Martin will have you think,” McRae said. “Last year in huddles he’d tell us, ‘You can’t hit shots if you’re lifestyle off the court is not right. If you’re coming in at 3 o’clock in the morning, if you’re drinking or chasing girls or whatever you’re doing, you’re not going to be able to hit shots.’ Some people will be kids and be like, ‘Oh, whatever, that’s not what it is.’ But at the same time, you’re shooting every day,

you’re trying to figure out why I’m not hitting shots, and you’re like, ‘OK, I’m going to try to lay off whatever I’m doing, stop eating so much junk food.’ “He just has a way of really making you think about everything you’re doing outside of basketball. He treats a custodian the same way he’d treat the president. You treat everybody the same. As much as people think stuff is all basketball with us, a lot of it has nothing to do with basketball. “I mean, I’m not saying anything about the previous coaching staff, but if I never had coach Martin, I don’t know what I’d be doing right now. I don’t know if I’d still be playing basketball or even still be in college. I really don’t. And I know I wouldn’t be playing at this level.” Martin and McRae still have moments where neither seems particularly pleased with the other, but theirs is perhaps the strongest relationship in a program full of strong, personal bonds that stretch well outside the 94-foot basketball court. Once McRae started seeing the results of that tough love, he said he finally understood what that twoword phrase — tough love — meant. “My first year here, I didn’t trust anybody, and coach Martin’s first year here, I didn’t trust anybody,” McRae said. “It wasn’t because they were bad people or anything. It was just like, ‘You don’t know me, and I don’t know you. Who are you? Why would you want me to do well?’ But coach Martin is just it’s just different. I can tell he really wants the best for me. He wants the best for everybody. “Coach Martin calls me all the time and asks things like, ‘How are you doing? How’s your family? How’s class? How’s this?’ Or he’ll just be like, ‘Are you watching the game? Did you see that?’ He’ll tweet ‘LOL’ at you. “He’s just he’s always there. He’s there all the time. You can tell how much he cares about you.” McRae said Martin’s mentoring the past three years has helped him so much that he hopes to pay it forward in the future. McRae doesn’t want to coach professional or college basketball because of the excessive travel, but he wants to be around the game. More specifically, he wants to help talented basketball players with attitude issues. He wants kids to learn the lessons he learned, but sooner than he learned them. “It’s coach Martin, really,” McRae said. “I’ve seen the results of him doing the things he’s done with me the past couple of years. I mean, if I hadn’t changed, and if nobody else around here had changed, I wouldn’t want to do it. But we have. You see the results every day in our locker room, so I want to do the same thing for other people now.”

Jeronne Maymon determined to finish career strong By Ben Frederickson, Knoxville News Sentinel March 7, 2014

The Tennessee men’s basketball team was showing off. It was Feb. 28, the day before the Vols played Vanderbilt, and practice hadn’t really started yet. Players caught passes at the top of the 3-point line, then scored as impressively as they could. Jordan McRae flushed a violent tomahawk. Jarnell Stokes made the rim quiver. Even freshman A.J. Davis jammed. It was Jeronne Maymon’s turn. The senior forward’s left hand was wrapped in tape to cut the pain of the most recent bump or bruise he was ignoring. His knees, both covered in sleeves, bent as he caught the ball and stopped. “Ohhh,” he shouted as he started to move again. The groan wasn’t followed by a dunk. Maymon opted for a finger roll. On Wednesday, in a hotel lobby before UT played Auburn, Maymon reflected. He turned 23 the following day. And on Saturday (TV: ESPN, 4:10 p.m.), he will celebrate his senior day before UT (19-11, 10-7 SEC) plays a pivotal game against Missouri (21-9, 9-8) at Thompson-Boling Arena. “It’s amazing how fast things go by and how old you get,” he said. “And you don’t even know it.” His college basketball career has been through two teams (he left Marquette during his freshman season), three different head coaches, two surgically repaired knees and a season on the sideline. The end is now in sight. “It’s been a good ride,” Maymon said. “I had a lot of ups and downs, a lot of trials and tribulations. A lot of changing processes, with the coaching changes and the injuries. It’s been a fun career. I’m blessed to say I finished my race.” His next challenge? Start a new race. On Nov. 22, 2011, Maymon scored 32 points and pulled down 20 rebounds in an overtime loss to Memphis at the Maui Invitational. He was quick off the floor and unstoppable when he slashed into the lane. “He’s like a seventh grader playing in a fifth-grade game inside!” the TV announcer exclaimed. Maymon, who swears to be pain free, acknowledges things look different now. The plan wasn’t for him to be left off the NBA draft boards that say his teammates McRae and Stokes might be selected in the second round. “I just lack strength and explosiveness that I used to have,” he said. “I didn’t have that much of it before,


but I still had enough to be a very productive player.” Before he sat out last season, Maymon averaged 12.7 points and 8.1 rebounds as a junior. This season, those averages are 10.4 and 8.2. He had six more double-doubles and 13 more 10-point games before his injuries. According to Hoop-Math.com, the percentage of shots he finishes at the rim has decreased by 6.2 percent. This is where McRae gets annoyed. “To our team, whether Jeronne has 20 points or 15 rebounds, the stats don’t say enough about what he does for everybody, on and off the court,” he said. “He’s a leader, for everybody.” UT coach Cuonzo Martin points out that Maymon routinely guards the opponent’s best post player. And the dry erase board that hangs in Pratt Pavilion speaks for itself. Martin tracks hustle stats — charges, dives, deflections, steals, rebounds and and-ones — for every game. The board shows Maymon led the team nine times before UT played its 30th game at Vanderbilt. Asked how he wants to be remembered by UT fans, Maymon responds: “The hardest worker they have ever seen in a Tennessee uniform. I just want the fans to know I give it my all. Injured. Not injured. If I’m out there in a uniform, I’m going to give it my all.” And he’s going to give it all to keep going. In May, he will become the first person in his immediate family to receive a college degree (psychology). A career as a family counselor could be down the line. But, for now, basketball is still the plan. “I think, with a hard summer of lifting and getting refocused back in on my body, I will be able to get back to where I need to be,” he said. The NBA draft is likely out of the question, but there are camp contracts. There are other countries. “I’m going to ride this thing until the wheels — knees — fall off,” Maymon said.

‘One Shining Moment’ has become source of inspiration for Tennessee men’s basketball team By Ben Frederickson, Knoxville News Sentinel March 3, 2014

Derek Reese, sitting in a Hilton Garden Inn in Starkville, Miss., felt the skin on his arms change. “It gave me goosebumps,” the junior forward said. “It’s something I want to experience.” A quiet and perhaps a bit downtrodden Tennessee men’s basketball team had just come off a 68-65 overtime loss to Texas A&M on Feb. 22. As a result, UT coach Cuonzo Martin broke one of his cardinal rules the night before the Vols played Mississippi State at Humphrey Coliseum on Feb. 26. The man who preaches one-game-at-a-time went big picture. The team ends every pregame evening the same way. After the final film study comes a brief motivational message. Martin might read a favorite quote. Sometimes team chaplain Roger Woods speaks. But on this night, Martin showed his team a Joe Lunardi projected bracket. The ESPN college basketball expert known for his accuracy in predicting the NCAA tournament’s 68-team field still had the Vols on the right side of the bubble. Then a video coordinator pressed play. Game film was replaced by cheerleaders who tossed their hair. Powerful drum beats demanded attention before they gave way to the piano notes of that familiar David Barrett song, the one that, when paired with highlights of the NCAA tournament, becomes a staple of March Madness.

“The ball is tipped,” Martin sang during his weekly press conference on Monday. The singing stopped. The coach smiled. “One Shining Moment,” Martin said. “I like that. We played that for them, and I thought it was fun for our guys. Because it is a great feeling when you hear that song and have that opportunity. And I want our guys to have that.” The Vols (18-11, 9-7 SEC) beat Mississippi State 7568 after watching the video as a team for the first time. Before they beat Vanderbilt 76-38 on Saturday, they watched it again.

NOTEWORTHY:

Tennessee is 8-0 this season when senior Antonio Barton makes at least three 3-pointers. That includes wins over ACC Champion Virginia, Georgia, Missouri and others.

“A sense of relief,” Martin said of his players’ reaction. “OK. Let’s do what we need to do. We’re right there. Again, if we play the way we are capable of playing, we’ll be fine.” Now, no one is claiming the three-minute clip is responsible for the wins. But no one sees much sense in messing with a good thing. “One Shining Moment” will surely play before UT plays Auburn (13-14, 5-11) on Wednesday (TV: MyVLT, 8 p.m.) at Auburn Arena. “When I watched that, I had that feeling,” Reese said. “I just think about we have to come out there and play. We can’t lose anymore. We have to come out there and play Tennessee basketball.”

End of cold streak brings ‘relief’ for Vols’ Barton By Patrick Brown, Chattanooga Times Free Press Feb. 20, 2014

KNOXVILLE — After hitting his fourth 3-pointer of the game midway through the second half of Tennessee’s 67-48 win against Georgia on Tuesday night, Antonio Barton briefly paused to look down at the 3-point line. In the moment, it seemed as if the Volunteers’ point guard was telling himself, “Finally.” At least for one game, his shot was falling at last. “After every one went in I was just like that,” Barton said after breaking out of a long cold spell with 12 points on four 3s against the Bulldogs. “Amen,” quipped third-year Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin. “I just felt relief, like it was a whole weight off my shoulders,” Barton added. “I’ve been struggling for the past couple of games with my shooting, and it kind of looks frustrating, but I stuck with it and I’m gonna keep shooting.” Entering the Georgia game, the Memphis transfer, brought in to fill Tennessee’s missing link at point guard, was an abysmal 9-of-45 (20 percent) from 3-point range in SEC play. The Baltimore native hit 4-of-7 on Tuesday, by far his best shooting performance since an identical performance from 3 at LSU in the Vols’ season opener six weeks ago. Barton’s outside shooting accompanied Jarnell Stokes’ inside dominance as Tennessee notched its 13th win of the season by 15 or more points. “It takes to us to another level,” third-year Vols coach Cuonzo Martin said when asked how Barton

making shots affects his team. “Now you have five guys out there, Jeronne [Maymon] and Jarnell do what they do around the rim and you’ve got three perimeter guys that’ll make shots and also have the ability to drive the basketball. It just takes you to another level.” The Vols didn’t come near that level with Barton’s ice-cold shooting slump the past few weeks. Just how poor was Barton shooting before his breakout against Georgia? In his previous nine games, he was 3-of-32 on 3-point attempts. During that stretch, Barton hit one trey against Arkansas, two at Vanderbilt and shot o-for-18 in the other seven games, and freshman Darius Thompson usurped Barton’s starting role. Even while he might as well have been buried by the roughly foot of snow Knoxville’s gotten on a couple different occasions in recent weeks, Barton said his daily 90-minute shooting sessions helped him keep his confidence up. “I work out every day in the morning at 10 o’clock and get up as many shots as I can,” he said. “My confidence was high. I was just waiting on that moment for it to fall. “I was always still confident in my shot. That’s why I kept shooting. It’s going to be ups and downs like that, and you’ve just got to be a strong person to handle that.” Barton said he felt like he was going to have a good night shooting during Tennessee’s shootaround, added that teammate Quinton Chievous told him to go “four-for-something” against Georgia and credited the Vols’ coaches for maintaining their faith in him during his frozen stretch. Barton had one 3 that fell through the net after popping straight up off the front rim. He hit two triples early while the game was back and forth and added two more as the Vols pulled away in the second half. The Vols were 4-1, including the rout of Virginia and a 2-1 start in league play, during a five-game stretch earlier this season when he hit 13 total 3s and and averaged 13 points, and Tennessee is now 6-2 this season when Barton hits multiple 3s. “The biggest key is when you work on your shot and put a lot of time in it -- and he’s put a lot of time into it -- eventually those shots start to fall,” Martin said. “If you don’t put the time into it, and it doesn’t fall, then there’s no need to be upset. He puts the time into it, so that’s probably why he wants those shots to fall and shows the emotion he does.”


Tennessee star Stokes transfers chess skills to hardwood By Jesse Dougherty, The Daily Orange Jan. 15, 2014

Every other week, Jarnell Stokes heads to the Wendy’s down the road from the University of Tennessee campus. When he gets there, he walks past the counter and to the back where a group of older men huddle around chessboards. Stokes is 6-feet-8, 260 pounds and wears a size 20 shoe. He doesn’t look like the rest of the group, but they recognize him right away. “They all watch Tennessee basketball and keep up with it,” Stokes said, “and they know me `cause I’m always coming.” When Stokes — now a junior forward for the Volunteers — first started at Tennessee in the fall of 2011, he went to Wendy’s to burnish his chess skills. But what was at first an outlet from the life of a Division I basketball player now transcends a recreational release. Stokes’ chess game is his basketball game. It helps him see things before others on the court, and shapes his preparation off of it. “He’s done his best job this year in our program of preparing for games. Making decisions, taking care of the basketball and reading defenses a lot better,” Tennessee head coach Cuonzo Martin said. “You have to give credit to his chess game.” When Daniel Lucas plays doubles tennis, his teammates tell him he plays like a chess player. Lucas is the director of publications for the United States Chess Federation and editor of Chess Life magazine. The game has helped him on the tennis court and as an avid runner. According to Lucas, for an athlete like Stokes playing chess breeds a competitive and intellectual advantage. “Study after study shows that chess playing keeps people cognitively sharp,” Lucas said. “It is easy to see that this skill is translatable to the basketball floor.” When Stokes was in kindergarten, his parents started him in a chess club. He fell in love with the game and played regularly until high school and travel basketball teams became too demanding and it was pushed aside. But in his freshman year at Tennessee, he rekindled his lifelong hobby. “I first went to Wendy’s just to see if I had it like I used to,” Stokes said. “But now I can beat almost all of them and it’s helping me out on the court. I like that it tests my brain and is also a release from basketball.” In 2011, Stokes was a highly touted recruit out of Memphis, Tenn., with no college pedigree. He averaged 9.6 points and 7.4 rebounds as a freshman and was elected to the Southeast Conference’s all-freshman team at season’s end. As a sophomore he averaged close to a double-double with 12.4 and 9.6, fast tracking himself onto opponents’ scouting reports. Now he’s posting 13.4 and 9.3 and deliberately plans for each game. “If you would have said scouting reports last year, I wouldn’t have believed it,” Stokes said. “But now I pretty much just like to vision the game before it happens, and try and prepare myself for anything that happens.” This past summer Stokes went to the drawing board. During his breakout sophomore season teams started to completely take away his left hand. They also started to double-team him whenever he caught the ball in the post. So he worked day after day on developing his left-handed hook shot in the offseason. Then after

workouts he sat in the film room and looked at tape of teams doubling him to see where his teammates would float to on the court. By combining his physical and cerebral selves, Stokes has made himself a dominant forward that Martin says “could be one of the best college basketball players in the country.” All because when other players finish working out and turn in for the day, Stokes sits down and polishes his game by playing another. “Dealing with double teams, I feel like having chess really helps,” he said. “Me being able to keep my focus and not panic in certain situations and my whole demeanor can be a result from chess. I can really deal with double teams and see plays in advance. “It’s all chess.”

Stokes has 33. McRae has 30. Barton, after being held scoreless in the two losses that led to the players-only session, has 21. The list goes on and on. “It showed up well for us tonight,” Richardson said. “We’re executing a lot better,” Barton added. “We’re defending. We’re helping the bigs out on the rebounds. We’re just coming together as a team.” Coming together as a team after clearing the air as a team. “Everybody was saying how they felt,” McRae said. And hearing it from each other, McRae said, has been the difference maker. “Hearing from it your coach is one thing, but me saying [it], or somebody telling me ‘you need to do this right,’ or hearing from a player ‘you need to do this better,’ I mean, that helps out a lot.”

Vols say team meeting helping matters

Josh Richardson was out to ‘make them pay’ in 87-52 win over Virginia

By Grant Ramey, VolQuest.com Dec. 30, 2013

Tennessee has scored 169 points in its last two games. Monday night the Vols rolled Virginia 87-52, shooting 50 percent from the field, 61 percent from 3 and making 22 of 25 free throws. Jordan McRae had 21 points. Jarnell Stokes and Josh Richardson each had 20. Tennessee had three times as many assists [18] as turnovers [6]. After the game, head coach Cuonzo Martin credited the increased production to improved movement on the offensive end. Tennessee’s players, though, credited the performances over the last two games to something else. “We had a team meeting not too long ago,” Richardson said candidly, “just talked some stuff out. “We’ve just putting it into action on the court, and it’s been working for us.” That meeting was December 19, a day after coming out flat and finishing flat, in a 65-58 loss to North Carolina State at Thompson-Boling Arena. The Vols were 6-4 after losing two straight. Something had to change. It started with a series of text messages, Antonio Barton said. The players were told where to be and when to be there. “We texted each other, said we need to meet,” Barton explained. “We met at the apartment, had a conversation for I’d say 30 minutes to an hour.” That conversation centered around scrapping what had been going on and setting new standards for themselves, for their teammates and for their team as a whole. “We just got together and told everybody we’ve got to come out and play Tennessee basketball,” Barton said. “We were lacking on defense. We told guys they had to get in the gym, work on their shot, shoot the ball. We just had to play for each other.” More than anything, they had to clear the air. The tension had grown to unplayable levels, and it was showing on the court. “Stuff was tensed up [after] a couple losses,” Richardson said. He downplayed the meeting, saying it “wasn’t serious” and that it was just a players’ dinner where they “talked some stuff over.” “We were just trying to tell the young guys not to panic, to keep plugging,” he said. What can’t be downplayed are the results from that meeting. Richardson has 39 points, a team-high 19 against Morehead, a career-high 20 against Virginia, in two games since.

By Ben Frederickson, Knoxville News Sentinel Dec. 13, 2013

During one of the practices that led up to Monday night’s game against Virginia, Josh Richardson jammed a few fingers on his left hand. The swollen digits wrapped in white athletic tape didn’t seem to slow the junior guard down much, though. “I guess not,” he said with a smile. Richardson scored 20 points to help his Vols (8-4) beat Virginia (9-4) 87-52 at Thompson-Boling Arena. The 35-point deficit was the most-lopsided win the Vols have had under coach Cuonzo Martin. It was also a dose of redemption for a UT team that was embarrassed by a 46-38 loss at Virginia last season. For the second time in as many games, Richardson set his season-high. This one also matched his careerbest. He made eight-of-nine shots, along with all four of his 3-pointers. “Teams weren’t really guarding me the last couple of years,” he said. “And they haven’t really been guarding me too much this year. I’m just trying to make them pay for it, to where it makes it easier for everybody else.” The strategy worked. Richardson was the early spark, and his teammates stepped up when foul trouble sat him down. Jordan McRae finished with a team-high 21 points, Jarnell Stokes scored 20 and Antonio Barton notched a season-best 14.

“We told guys they had to get in the gym, work on their shot. We just had to play for each other.”

Senior guard Antonio Barton

Virginia entered the game with one of the stoutest defenses in the country. Tony Bennett’s suffocating half-court, man-to-man look had held opponents to an average of 54 points per game. The Vols, largely thanks to Richardson’s 15 first-half points, led 48-26 at intermission. “Josh is playing as well as any wing guard in the


league right now in the last two games, on both ends of the floor,” Martin said. “He just has to stay aggressive and keep doing what he is doing.” Richardson, who scored 19 in a win over Morehead State before the holiday break, sank his first jumper to put the Vols up 8-4 with 16:29 to play. Five more, including three 3-pointers, would follow before his first miss. One of the long balls came with a defender directly in front of his face. It’s a shot Richardson usually avoids. “I was heat checking myself,” he said. He wasn’t the only one who got hot. The energy level inside Thompson-Boling was as high as it has been all season when Barton — who made five of his six shots — hit a half-court heave as the halftime buzzer sounded. A season-high crowd of 16,142 had witnessed a UT team known for fumbling away meaningful games capture a game-defining lead against an especially stingy opponent. Virginia hadn’t surrendered that many first-half points since Washington scored 55 in November of 2010. “If you asked me before the game, I would have been surprised, to be totally honest with you,” Martin said. “When you make shots, you drive the ball, you are aggressive, you cut and move and have spacing, good things happen.” The Vols never trailed and shot 50 percent from the field. They made their first five 3-pointers and finished 11-of-18. They also made 22-of-25 free throws. Meanwhile, the Cavaliers shot 32.7 percent from the field and made 2-of-12 from behind the arc. Martin credited McRae, who held Virginia’s best scoring threat Joe Harris to seven points, with his best defensive performance of his career. Only two Virginia players reached double-digits: Justin Anderson (11 points) and Mike Tobey (10). Richardson nearly totaled that on his own. He didn’t miss until the first minute of the second half when a layup rimmed out. He picked up his third foul in the scramble, and had to spend a chunk of time on the bench. His teammates kept their foot on the gas, and he got back on track with three more made buckets when he returned. Jammed fingers and all, he says he feels as good as he ever has. “I’ve been hitting a lot of shots lately,” he said. “I’ve just got to stay confident. I can’t lose any steps.”

Derek Reese makes most of opportunity in Vols’ win over Morehead State By Ben Frederickson, Knoxville News Sentinel Dec. 23, 2013

Derek Reese didn’t know she sent it. The text message from his mother, Yolanda Reese, to his coach, Cuonzo Martin, read: “Coach, don’t give up on him.” Martin didn’t. And Reese kept working, quietly. “I knew, just to take steps to grow up, I needed to handle this on my own,” Derek Reese said. “I handled it ... I asked what he wanted me to do, and I did what he wanted me to do to get my opportunity.” On a Monday night in which an orange-clad Santa Claus darted around Thompson-Boling Arena handing out candy to kids, Tennessee received two surprising gifts in their 82-67 win against Morehead State. First came Josh Richardson, who paced the Vols (74) with a season-high 19 points and eight rebounds after he had only totaled six points in UT’s last two games (both losses). Richardson hit a 3-pointer and a pull-up jumper, but

The text message from his mother, Yolanda Reese, to his coach, Cuonzo Martin, read: “Coach, don’t give up on him.” Martin didn’t. And Reese kept working. most of his buckets came via hard drives and cuts through the lane. He scored 14 in the first half while UT’s leading scorer, Jordan McRae, was burdened with foul trouble. Richardson’s play would have been the story of the game. Then Reese came off the bench. “That’s a case of a guy being ready at all times,” Martin said. Since the Vols lost to N.C State 65-58 last Wednesday, Martin had hinted at changes to his rotation. The starting lineup remained the same, but Reese moving into the reserve role usually occupied by freshman forward A.J. Davis was a significant shift. The sophomore — who is listed as a guard but mostly plays as an undersized forward — had not played at all this season. When he stepped on the court with 10:22 to play in the first half, he showed he was tired of waiting. “We were shocked,” Morehead State coach Sean Woods said. “He’s a pretty good player. We really didn’t plan on him coming out and playing significant minutes. But he did.” Reese notched his first double-double as a Vol. His 12 points, 10 rebounds and four blocked shots were all career-highs. The highlight came late in the second half, when he soared over Morehead State’s 6-foot11 center Chad Posthumus and flushed a dunk with two hands. Reese’s performance, mostly because it was so unexpected, overshadowed his teammates. And they did some impressive things of their own. Jarnell Stokes and Jeronne Maymon both had double-digit nights. Stokes finished with 13 points and nine rebounds. Maymon had 16 and eight. And while McRae scored a season-low nine, he dished out a seasonhigh five assists. As a team, the Vols totaled a seasonhigh 20 assists and started the second half on a 13-0 run that slammed the door. But back to Reese. Where has he been all season? “He just wasn’t at the level he needed to be,” Martin said. “If he wasn’t making shots, he needed to play harder and be more competitive. He had to have a tougher tone. He has done a good job of that lately.” Reese appeared in 14 games last season and averaged 13.6 minutes per game. When he returned for his sophomore campaign, Martin informed him that he needed to change in order to play. He wanted a tougher, stronger Reese, one who wasn’t afraid to fight for a rebound, one who did more than catch and shoot. A direct challenge had been issued. It was time to see how Reese responded. “You do these things right here, you have an opportunity to play,” Martin said. “It’s real simple. I don’t hold grudges. I’m not trying to hurt a young man.

He’s part of my family. I love all my guys. But these are the things I need you to do to be successful. To his credit he continued to work, get in the gym. He’s gotten his body stronger. He’s picked up 15 pounds. He lifted weights the day of the game, three hours before the game. Not many guys do that in college basketball. That says I want to be a ballplayer. I want to do what it takes to be successful.” Reese, who now weighs close to 220 pounds, has won Martin over. He’s looking to make up for lost time. “I can’t stop now,” he said. “I’ve got to keep being more consistent.” Still he savored Monday’s moment. He entered a room full of reporters beaming. He reached for a high-five from Richardson. Even the night’s unlikely leading scorer knew he was second to Reese in the spotlight. “He came in and balled out,” Richardson said.

Vols’ Thompson a natural born point guard By Chris Dortch, Nooga.com Nov. 26, 2013

As head basketball coach at Motlow State in the late ’90s, Lonnie Thompson didn’t have the luxury of a video coordinator. If he wanted to break down film of an upcoming opponent, he had to do it himself, and more times than not he had to take his work home. That’s how he discovered he had a prodigy on his hands. One night Thompson was watching tape when his five-year-old son Darius ambled into the room, sat down beside him and offered a quick opinion. “I can’t remember exactly what he said,” said Thompson, now the head coach at Cumberland University. “But it was something about one of our opponent’s players, and it was dead on. I said, ‘What?’ And I made him repeat it. And he repeated it, which told me he knew what he was talking about. “I told my wife, I don’t know if he’s gonna grow into being a basketball player, whether he’ll have the size or not. But he’s gonna have the mind for it. He’s always thought like a coach.” Flash forward to 2012. Young Darius grew to nearly 6-foot-5, and he had become a basketball player, a

“During the visit, Brad (Stevens) came up to me and said, ‘Coach, I know Darius is going to major in accounting, but when he’s finished playing, he’s going to be a coach.” Lonnie Thompson point guard good enough to receive numerous scholarship offers from mid-major Division I schools. One of them was Butler. On his recruiting visit, Thompson sat with then-coach Brad Stevens, watched film and talked basketball for two hours. “During the visit, Brad came up to me and said, ‘Coach, I know Darius is going to major in account-


Tennessee’s average home attendance: 15,475

ing, but when he’s finished playing, he’s going to be a coach,’ ” Lonnie Thompson said. Darius Thompson appeared headed for Butler—he loved Stevens—but when word got out that the Bulldogs, who had transcended the mid-major tag with consecutive Final Four appearances in 2010-11, were interested, Southern power conference schools began lining up. Alabama, Auburn, NC State, Vanderbilt and Virginia all offered scholarships, and last January, Thompson, wanting to stay close to his home in Murfreesboro, Tenn., committed to Vandy. But a couple of weeks later, he found out the Commodores had another point guard, Eric McClellan, sitting out as a redshirt after transferring from Tulsa. He promptly reopened his recruitment, and that’s when Tennessee began applying the full-court press. By that time, coach Cuonzo Martin and his staff had realized Travon Landry, who had signed with the Vols in November 2012, wasn’t the player they thought he would evolve into when they accepted his commitment before his junior season in high school. In need of a Southeastern Conference-level point guard to understudy Trae Golden for a year, Martin turned to Thompson. Which brings us around to last Friday night. To the casual fan, the most impressive stat lines in the Vols’ easy victory over Tennessee State might have been the 25 points scored by senior guard Jordan McRae or the 16 points and eight rebounds contributed by junior forward Jarnell Stokes. But a more discerning fan, or a coach, might be equally impressed with the night’s work turned in by Darius Thompson. Playing a season-high 24 minutes, Thompson handed out seven assists against one turnover, nabbed five steals, grabbed four rebounds and blocked a shot. His six points—and the five shots he took to get them—were important too, if only that it showed the unselfish Thompson was beginning to assert himself offensively.

The only complaint Martin had after the game—and it was a minor quibble—was that Thompson needs to look for his shot even more. Thompson has a textbook jump shot, but he’s temperamentally disinclined to use it. That’s because he’s the son of a coach, a coach who just happened to idolize one of the best point guards in the history of basketball. “The idol of my life is Magic Johnson,” Lonnie Thompson said. “The only thing Darius heard growing up was Magic Johnson, Magic Johnson. Magic Johnson makes people around him better.” By osmosis, then, young Darius evolved into a passfirst point guard. He gives all the credit to his father. “I was basically born into basketball,” Darius Thompson said. “When I got to the age where I could understand it, I was always in the gym with my dad, or watching film with him. I used to always watch point guards. I got attracted to making flashy passes, no-look passes. That gets the crowd exited. That’s just what I fell in love with.” Once the elder Thompson learned which direction his son was leaning, he didn’t clutter his mind with a lot of coaching. “If he took any advice from me as a coach,” Lonnie Thompson said, “it was just this: Place the ball where you want people to go, where you want them to be.” Thompson put on a clinic against Tennessee State. In transition, he’s always looking ahead, leading teammates with a pass that allows them to get ahead of the defensive pack for easy dunks and layups. In the half court, Thompson is tall enough to see over the defense and pick it apart as his teammates cut to the basket. “When Darius has the ball, you always have to be ready for it,” McRae said. “He sees things that most guys don’t see.” Said teammate Armani Moore, “It is very exciting to play with him because you never know when you’re going to get the ball. You have to always watch him

to see what he’s going to do. I like how he passes the ball. He’s very smart with it.” Ask Martin how Thompson does his thing and he provides you with a list: “No. 1, intelligence,” Martin said. “No. 2, his father is a coach. No. 3, he studies NBA greats. No. 4, he wants to be great.” Lonnie Thompson realized that Martin’s point No. 4 was true when, night after night, he had to chase his son away from the computer and make him go to bed. Like his dad, Darius had become a film junkie. “I always like to watch point guards,” he said. “Past and present NBA point guards. Guys like Magic Johnson, or Chris Paul or Stephen Curry. And I ask my coaches at Tennessee which point guards to watch. I always want to keep learning.” Part of Thompson’s job as a point guard is taking

“One team that could go deep in the tournament... Tennessee.” TruTV analyst Charles Barkley charge. That part was difficult for a young freshman at first, but he’s learning. “I had a problem, telling guys who might be four or five years older than me what to do,” Thompson said. “But I’m getting better and better at that.” Thompson is getting better and better at a lot of things. His defense, usually the last thing for a freshman to get the hang of, is progressing, as evidenced by those five steals. His assist-to-turnover ratio is almost 4-1, off the charts for anyone, let alone a rookie. He’s a good rebounder for his position. The final frontier is to make sure he doesn’t become unselfish to a fault. “Darius is never gonna be that guy who takes 12-15 shots a game,” Lonnie Thompson said. “But he’s got to keep defenses honest. I’ve told him you don’t want your team to play five on four, because the other team doesn’t have to guard you. That won’t work in the SEC.” Chances are good that Thompson is already studying film of point guards who have mastered that delicate balance between scoring and facilitating, and that he’ll figure out how it’s done. Tennessee coaches have raved about how he seemingly improves daily. “Dad and I talk every day,” Thompson said. “He says I’m doing good. And I can sense that, too. My confidence is getting up there, more from game to game. But I can’t stop there.”

Josh Richardson sets ‘vibe’ for UT’s improved defense By Ben Frederickson, Knoxville News Sentinel March 10, 2014

In late February, Tennessee men’s basketball coach Cuonzo Martin told Josh Richardson to come to his office. “It wasn’t criticism,” UT assistant coach Kent Williams said. “It was, ‘We need you to act this way to get the rest of the guys to raise their level.’ ” First, one must understand Richardson’s dual roles. Martin bills the junior guard as his team’s best poundfor-pound defender. He is also one of the most funloving Vols, someone who can swat a teammate’s shot during practice, then put that same player in stitches with the comment that follows. “Everybody knows I’m a goofy guy,” Richardson said. “He (Martin) said I wasn’t approaching the game as serious as I could be. Because, you know, I kind of joke around during warm-ups, or whatever. I took heed to it.”

“Seeing a guy I’m guarding get frustrated, that makes me want to play even harder. That’s like blood in the water for a shark.” Josh Richardson

A Tennessee (20-11, 11-7 SEC) defensive effort that has held the Vols’ last three opponents to their lowest point totals of the season can be traced to that meeting between Martin and Richardson. A player accepted his coach’s request. He would scale back the on-court shenanigans and try a more focused approach. Now he is reaping the rewards while elevating his team. “Our whole time here, he has been a good defender for us,” Williams said. “Being good and trying to take that to great, it has to be the mindset. If you’re going head-to-head with a guy and he’s smiling, you’re not thinking, ‘He is here to take my head off.’ Josh knows for us to take the next step, which we have done the past few games, it has to start with him.” Martin said Richardson’s defense has been “elite” since UT started its current four-game winning streak with a 75-68 win at Mississippi State on Feb. 26. But it’s the last three games that stand out. Here’s how three of the league’s premier scorers did against the refocused Richardson: Vanderbilt forward Rod Odom (1-7, four points), Auburn guard Chris Denson (1-10, three points) and Missouri guard Jabari Brown (1-10, eight points). And some of those totals are misleading. For example, Richardson only surrendered four of Brown’s points in UT’s 72-45 win on Saturday. He was on the sideline for the rest, including the one and only field goal Brown made. He shouted ‘No!” when the SEC’s top scorer’s shot hit the net. Richardson had spent 31 minutes in Brown’s face, occasionally glancing at the scoreboard to check in on Missouri’s best player’s worst night of the season. As soon as Brown, who averages 20.7 points, slammed the ball to the floor after he traveled, Richardson knew. “When I get that moment, seeing a guy I’m guarding get frustrated, that makes me want to play even harder,” he said. “That’s like blood in the water for a shark.” That change Martin asked him to make? Richardson

is taking to it. “I thought he was always a good defender, our defensive stopper,” Martin said. “But now he is on pace to be an elite defender. When you can shut guys down, with those types of scores, it’s not easy.” Meanwhile Richardson’s teammates have followed his lead. “If you see one player out there dying on the defensive end, you kind of want to go out there and die with him,” forward Jeronne Maymon said. “That’s how we see it.” Point guard Antonio Barton has remained in front of the ball handlers who blew by him and freshman Darius Thompson earlier this season. Jordan McRae has been quick to help when Richardson needs him, and vice versa. Forwards Jarnell Stokes and Maymon have been as active and effective as ever; Stokes recently said he is having fun playing defense for the first time in his career. “Right now, just on defense as a team, we can feel it,” Williams said. “When we’re on the bench, the players and the coaches can feel it. There’s a vibe about it.” At the heart of the vibe is a defensive stopper who traded a few laughs for a businesslike approach that inspires his team.

It’s been quite a ride for McRae

By Rob Lewis, Knoxville News Sentinel March 8, 2014

Saturday afternoon promises to be one of drama in Thompson Boling Arena. Tennessee (19-11, 10-7) not only hosts Missouri (21-9, 9-8) in a hugely pivotal contest for both squads, but the Vols will also be saying farewell to four seniors, playing their last game in front of the home crowd. It will be final home appearance for Jordan McRae, Jeronne Maymon, Antonio Barton and D’Montre Ed-


wards, and needless to say, they hope they go out in style. Somewhat curiously, of the four, McRae is the only one who signed with Tennessee out of high school. He was a little-used freshman the last time the Vols went to the NCAA Tournament (Maymon was a sophomore on that team) and would love nothing more than to end his career by helping the Vols to return to the Big Dance. A simple graph depicting McRae’s career trajectory would be a straight line headed in an upward direction from the bottom left hand corner to the top right. It would be reflective of a player who’s transformed himself from someone who averaged less than two minutes per game as a freshman into one of the most dangerous offensive weapons in the SEC and one of the top-20 scorers in the history of Tennessee’s program. However, a simple graph wouldn’t begin to capture the true nature of McRae’s growth. Once best known as a volatile, hot-headed freshman, there were more than a few people who placed long odds on McRae even remaining a part of the program once Cuonzo Martin took over in the spring of 2011. McRae was one of those people. “It was hard to imagine things unfolding like they have. There were definitely times when I didn’t know if I’d be able to play here, play for coach Martin,” McRae said, thinking back to those early days with a new coaching staff. The feeling was mutual. On Friday, Martin chuckled when asked about the early days of his relationship with McRae. The thought that he could help the team on the floor was never in question. Whether or not he could get on board and adapt to the demands placed on him by a discipline-minded head coach though, was another matter entirely. “I have love for Jordan, we’re family. It was tough out of the gates though, it was. He’s a guy who’s fiery, has energy but in some ways was out of control. It was a matter of reeling him in and making him understand that first and foremost we had to build a relationship before we did anything else,” Martin said of those early days and forging a bond that’s now carried them through some tough times over three years. “I went through some things under Gene Keady as a young player that were tough at first but led to us being able to build a relationship. That’s what happened here, after Jordan figured out that I cared about him. It was ‘now, let’s get to work.’” Get to work McRae has. He didn’t even begin that first season under Martin as a starter, but ended it as one, averaging 8.6 points per game for the season. He nearly doubled that total as a junior going for 15.7 ppg, though he still went through an early season stretch where Martin brought him off the bench before he cemented himself as a starter and one of the most explosive scorers in the SEC. This season, he’s third in the SEC in scoring at 19.3 ppg, fifth in three-point accuracy (41.2%) and has led Tennessee in scoring 19 out of 30 games this season. Nearly all college players that stick in a program for four years get better. Few make the kind of strides that McRae has. After his freshman season, a season where he totaled 18 points, few would have guessed McRae would finish his career as a member of the Vols’ 1,000 point club He’s sitting at 1,402 career points, No. 20 on the all-time list. It’s a certainty that he’s climbing higher before the end of the season, past No. 19 Jimmy England (1,406), No. 18 Steve Hamer (1,418) and No. 17 C.J.

Watson (1,424). Getting McRae to pat himself on the back is a near impossibility, but the famous gym-rat finally admitted that it does put a smile on his face, seeing the coutnless hours he’s put in pay off. “Sometimes I will think of some of the things I’ve done, and it does feel good. This school’s been around for a long time, so to finish as one of the top20 scorers as all time, that’s something to be proud of,” McRae conceded after some prodding on Friday. “I do have a sense of pride, looking back at where I was at when I got here. It’s not over yet though. I hope.” Ask him for a career highlight though, and he doesn’t point to any of his four 30+ point games, or his nearly perfect 27 point night in a win over Florida last season. “I hope my highlight is still out there, I hope I haven’t had it yet, but if i had to pick it wouldn’t be just a game or just one thing though,” McRae said when asked for his fondest memory. “Thinking back what I cherish is just playing in front of the home crowd, the big games we’ve won here and my teammates. I love the guys that I’ve played here with, that’s probably the biggest thing that I’ll think about.” McRae’s love for the game, which is somewhat legendary inside the program and includes a near constant search for pick-up games in the offseason, is probably the main reason why he and Martin were able to find common ground three years ago, and why he’ll be around to receive what should be a heartfelt embrace from the home crowd this afternoon during the pre-game ceremony. (Not inconsequentially, he’ll also be around to pick up the degree he’s on pace to get in May) No matter what else Martin may have seen in McRae in those early days, he saw a kid who loved to play basketball above everything else. From there, an understanding developed. “You never know really, (if a kid is going to stick),” Martin said when asked if he three years ago he ever envisioned McRae would be leaving as a decorated senior. “But he’s not a quitter. He’s a guy that battles. He’ll be injured and will still practice. He brings his hard hat and I give him credit for that. He battles all the time, he doesn’t complain, and he brings it even if he’s hurting. “He loves to play the game. You know that about him, and you could always hang that over his head if you were trying to get his attention. If you take him off that floor, that will sting him.” It’s a ploy Martin used liberally for the first season and a half he and McRae were a partnership, but something clicked in the middle of last season. Mostly, it seemed to be a matter of McRae finally being able to curb his emotions, or at least consistently channel them in a positive direction so that a cold shooting start or a perceived missed call by an official wouldn’t throw him off his stride. Martin was always conscious of not pressing too hard though, feeling like that competitiveness that sometimes spilled over and sidetracked McRae, was also one of his best assets. Along with a willingness to always take the big shot. “You never wanted him to lose his fire, because that’s what makes him special, so you’re looking for balance,” Martin said. “That energy and fire he has burning inside of him makes him special. “Also, Jordan wants to shoot every ball, that’s a great thing. He wants to score. A lot of guys talk about it, but he has the ability and the mindset to be a great scorer. He just had to understand what was a good shot, when to take that shot and how to involve his teammates. He’s come a long, long way.”

That’s true both of McRae as a player, and his relationship with Martin. If the two hadn’t found some common ground, it’s hard to imagine where this team would be today, let alone McRae. One thing seems certain though, both parties are better off because of it. “I wasn’t sure I was going to last, no doubt about it, but I’m happy he never gave up on me, kept pushing me. I’m glad he’s been as hard on me as he has. I’m thankful for it,” McRae said. That’s a statement he probably couldn’t have imagined himself making three years ago. And one Martin probably couldn’t imagine hearing.

Senior forward Jeronne Maymon determined to finish career strong By Ben Frederickson, Knoxville News Sentinel March 7, 2014

The Tennessee men’s basketball team was showing off. It was Feb. 28, the day before the Vols played Vanderbilt, and practice hadn’t really started yet. Players caught passes at the top of the 3-point line, then scored as impressively as they could. Jordan McRae flushed a violent tomahawk. Jarnell Stokes made the rim quiver. Even freshman A.J. Davis jammed. It was Jeronne Maymon’s turn. The senior forward’s left hand was wrapped in tape to cut the pain of the most recent bump or bruise he was ignoring. His knees, both covered in sleeves, bent as he caught the ball and stopped. “Ohhh,” he shouted as he started to move again. The groan wasn’t followed by a dunk. Maymon opted for a finger roll. On Wednesday, in a hotel lobby before UT played Auburn, Maymon reflected. He turned 23 the following day. And on Saturday (TV: ESPN, 4:10 p.m.), he will celebrate his senior day before UT (19-11, 10-7 SEC) plays a pivotal game against Missouri (21-9, 9-8) at Thompson-Boling Arena. “It’s amazing how fast things go by and how old you get,” he said. “And you don’t even know it.” His college basketball career has been through two teams (he left Marquette during his freshman season), three different head coaches, two surgically repaired knees and a season on the sideline. The end is now in sight. “It’s been a good ride,” Maymon said. “I had a lot of ups and downs, a lot of trials and tribulations. A lot of changing processes, with the coaching changes and the injuries. It’s been a fun career. I’m blessed to say I finished my race.” His next challenge? Start a new race. On Nov. 22, 2011, Maymon scored 32 points and pulled down 20 rebounds in an overtime loss to Memphis at the Maui Invitational. He was quick off the floor and unstoppable when he slashed into the lane. “He’s like a seventh grader playing in a fifth-grade game inside!” the TV announcer exclaimed. Maymon, who swears to be pain free, acknowledges things look different now. The plan wasn’t for him to be left off the NBA draft boards that say his teammates McRae and Stokes might be selected in the second round. “I just lack strength and explosiveness that I used to have,” he said. “I didn’t have that much of it before, but I still had enough to be a very productive player.” Before he sat out last season, Maymon averaged 12.7 points and 8.1 rebounds as a junior. This season, those averages are 10.4 and 8.2. He had six more double-doubles and 13 more 10-point games before his


injuries. According to Hoop-Math.com, the percentage of shots he finishes at the rim has decreased by 6.2 percent. This is where McRae gets annoyed. “To our team, whether Jeronne has 20 points or 15 rebounds, the stats don’t say enough about what he does for everybody, on and off the court,” he said. “He’s a leader, for everybody.” UT coach Cuonzo Martin points out that Maymon routinely guards the opponent’s best post player. And the dry erase board that hangs in Pratt Pavilion speaks for itself. Martin tracks hustle stats — charges, dives, deflections, steals, rebounds and and-ones — for every game. The board shows Maymon led the team nine times before UT played its 30th game at Vanderbilt. Asked how he wants to be remembered by UT fans, Maymon responds: “The hardest worker they have ever seen in a Tennessee uniform. I just want the fans to know I give it my all. Injured. Not injured. If I’m out there in a uniform, I’m going to give it my all.” And he’s going to give it all to keep going. In May, he will become the first person in his immediate family to receive a college degree (psychology). A career as a family counselor could be down the line. But, for now, basketball is still the plan. “I think, with a hard summer of lifting and getting refocused back in on my body, I will be able to get back to where I need to be,” he said. The NBA draft is likely out of the question, but there are camp contracts. There are other countries. “I’m going to ride this thing until the wheels — knees — fall off,” Maymon said.

But recently he has shown he can do other things, too. He’s set season-highs in minutes played the past two UT wins. In a 19-minute run at Mississippi State on Feb. 26 he made three of five shots for eight points, grabbed four rebounds and had three steals. “I thought Armani did a great job, really playing hard,” Martin said after that game. “He’s an energy guy. He is improving. He is a guy that battles, someone who can play a two, three or four position for us.” Against Vanderbilt on Saturday, Moore scored eight points on four of six shooting, grabbed three rebounds, added a steal, then put an exclamation point on a blowout win by forcefully rejecting a Damian Jones jumper. He appears to be more comfortable dribbling, more likely to pull up and finish in the lane instead of barrel into the man in front of him. He has shown flashes of an outside shot. And his defense — not just blocking shots — has been concrete. “First and foremost, my job is to come in bring the energy as usual,” Moore said. “At the same time, play basketball the way I know how to play. When you say that, it can mean a whole lot of things. I’ve increased my role a little bit. I’ve widened my game.” According to Ken Pomeroy’s statistics, UT ranks 11th in the SEC in terms of percentage of minutes played by non-starters. The Vols’ 24.5 percent is 294th in the nation and six percent below the national Division-I average. Moore knows helping change that will keep him off the bench next season. “You have to have experience before you learn how to do something,” he said. “Right now it is teaching me how to gradually play myself into a larger role.

Armani Moore bringing more than just blocks off the bench By Ben Frederickson, Knoxville News Sentinel March 4, 2014

Armani Moore admits he wasn’t ready. Jordan McRae, the Tennessee men’s basketball team’s leading scorer and senior starter, rolled his left ankle just two minutes into UT’s Feb. 22 game at Texas A&M. UT coach Cuonzo Martin called upon Moore. By the time the Vols lost in overtime, the undersized forward had played 12 unremarkable minutes. No points. No rebounds. None of the blocked shots Moore has become known for. “Personally, I wasn’t mentally locked in,” Moore said before the Vols practiced at Pratt Pavilion on Tuesday. “Because you’re not expecting to go out and play that fast.” That problem, Moore says, is no more. For the past two games, the sophomore has provided an off-the-bench punch UT has severely lacked this season. He hopes to keep it going when the Vols (18-11, 9-7 SEC) play their final road game of the regular season at Auburn (13-14, 5-11) on Wednesday (TV: MyVLT, 8:05 p.m.) at Auburn Arena. Throughout the season, Moore has dropped jaws with his acrobatic swats. It’s become common to see the 6-5, 215-pounder who teammate Jarnell Stokes describes as “country strong” climb an invisible ladder and stuff an opponent who stands 6-10 or taller. Being able to squat 465 pounds has its benefits. “The way he hunts the ball down on defense and how he attacks the rim,” senior guard Antonio Barton said. “He attacks the rim better than anyone I’ve played with.” Those momentum-injecting rejections are still high on Moore’s list of to-dos. “You are always looking forward to it,” he said. “How can you do it again?”

The impact I can have on this team will be even bigger next year. Because we will have younger guys, a younger team. It’s really helping me mature into the player that I need to become in the long run.”

Martin’s stamp clearly on Vols now By Austin Ward, ESPN.com March 19, 2014

DAYTON, Ohio -- Count it as the first NCAA tournament victory for Cuonzo Martin or simply earning his first true bid to the Big Dance, it really doesn’t make any difference now. After spending the season with the shadow of his predecessor seemingly getting larger every day, even popping up on the eve of perhaps the biggest game of his tenure with Tennessee, Martin finally, officially stepped out into some sunlight. Maybe the Vols don’t play the prettiest brand of basketball, and certainly a win in the First Four doesn’t measure up to some of the loftier perches the program reached before he arrived. But in a gritty, nasty, 78-65 overtime street fight with Iowa on Wednesday night at UD Arena, Martin claimed a win that at last might have given him a way to silence the skeptics, the petition-signers and the comparisons to Bruce Pearl. “I don’t deal with criticism,” Martin said. “That’s time and energy wasted. “What was said? I don’t know. I don’t have that kind of time and energy. I’m consumed with success.”

“I don’t deal with criticism. That’s time and energy wasted. “What was said? I don’t know. I don’t have that kind of time and energy. I’m consumed with success.”

“The way he hunts the ball down on defense and how he attacks the rim...

He attacks the rim better than anyone I’ve played with.’’

Antonio Barton

Cuonzo Martin

So are all the orange-clad fans, and after what they had grown accustomed to while going to six straight tournaments under Pearl, they were practically starving for some of that success to arrive after Martin’s first two seasons ended in the NIT. That brought plenty of ammunition for the Bring Back Bruce Brigade, which put together a petition that was signed by more than 36,000 people, all of them quick to point out Pearl’s record, the No. 1 ranking the team climbed to under his watch and his engaging personality. Pearl couldn’t return to the Vols even if he wanted to now that he has taken over at Auburn, a move which coincidentally was announced about an hour before Martin met with the media on Tuesday on the eve of the first round. But even when patience might have been wearing at its thinnest over the past couple months in Knoxville, the seeds Martin planted when he arrived in the wake of the NCAA investigation that chased Pearl out of town seemed to be blooming at just the right time. Toughness? The Vols crave contact so much, they celebrated big plays by shoving each other under the basket. Hard-nosed defense? The Hawkeyes came into the tournament averaging 82 points per game, and they came up 17 short despite getting an extra five minutes.


Resilience? Tennessee could have easily packed it in after bricking everything it threw up during a scoreless six-minute stretch to open the game as it fell behind by 12, or grown tired of having every second-half run and clutch shot answered by one on the other end by Iowa. But those pillars Martin has preached since taking over were plain to see as Jarnell Stokes and Jeronne Maymon fought in the post for a combined 27 points and 20 rebounds. They were obvious as Tennessee’s guards harassed the Hawkeyes on the perimeter and came up with two steals and forced six turnovers. And all that tireless work eventually wore down Iowa in overtime and allowed the Vols to pull away to leave enough time for the typically stoic Martin to look into the crowd behind the bench and pump his fists a few times. The celebration grew a little louder as Martin headed toward the tunnel leading to the locker room clapping his hands, and the noise coming from inside it once he arrived was impossible to ignore. “We tried to stay away from all the criticism that this team has been receiving throughout the year,” Stokes said. “It’s that’s our motivation, then we’re in it for the wrong reason. “We’re in it for Tennessee, keeping things positive.” The Vols left no reason for negativity as they packed up in Dayton and prepared to fly to Raleigh, N.C., for a date with sixth-seeded Massachusetts on Friday. And as for the latter part of Stokes’ equation, Tennessee now looks exactly like Martin intended when he took the reins. Maybe now he can stop hearing about who used to hold them.

Vols fought their way onto the plane to Raleigh By Mike Strange, Knoxville News Sentinel March 19, 2014

DAYTON, Ohio — The airplane was waiting at the airport here late Wednesday night. The flight plan was filed for Raleigh, N.C. The only question was which team would be the passengers. There was only room for one. Sometime after midnight, a weary but jubilant Tennessee team boarded the flight.

The First Four would not be the Vols’ last stop in the NCAA tournament. To earn a boarding pass for March Madness, Tennessee had to climb off the deck at Dayton Arena and fight for its postseason life. A 78-65 overtime win over Iowa was a gut-wrenching project the likes of which Tennessee fans have not seen in a while. In the end, the Vols continued their late-season momentum with their sixth win in the past seven games. It even ended up being double digits. But none of that happened until after Tennessee spotted Iowa a 16-4 lead. At that point, a berth in the Midwest Regional bracket in Raleigh against UMass seemed as distant as the Final Four. The Vols seemed to be pointed back to Knoxville to see how coach Cuonzo Martin’s future would play out. That’s on hold, though. The Vols will be back on the court Friday afternoon in Raleigh, one of the final 64 teams with a dream of that one shining moment. How they managed that feat is a testament to some admirable toughness and heart, staying the course after a horrid start. It’s difficult to sustain playing in catch-up mode for as long as UT had to do it Wednesday night. But that’s exactly what they did. On the subject of resiliency, a hand for two of the second-half heroes. Josh Richardson scored all of his 17 points in the second half. He was 0-for-5 in the first half. Good thing for the Vols he kept shooting. Antonio Barton was oh-fer in the first half as well. His most memorable moment was an air-balled 3-point try. He didn’t stay in the tank, though. Barton put UT ahead for the first time all night with a 3-pointer with 3:06 to play in regulation. Then he hit four free throws in overtime to take a six-point Tennessee lead to 10 points. That was the signal to Iowa that the Vols were going to Raleigh and the Hawkeyes were going home. Tennessee nearly pulled it off in regulation. But Roy Devyn Marble’s basket with 17 seconds left got the Hawkeyes a 64-64 tie. Then Jordan McRae missed a

jumper just ahead of the buzzer. That seemed par for the course. Tennessee’s record in tight games this year has been abysmal. So what did the Vols do about that? They made sure the overtime finish wouldn’t be tight at all. They dominated the overtime, from the moment Jarnell Stokes converted a three-point play and McRae followed with a layup for a 69-64 lead. Iowa managed one free throw in the overtime. Tennessee played with poise, a positive sign if you want to survive and advance this time of year. Advance the Vols will, with the program’s first NCAA tournament win since the Sweet 16 thriller over Ohio State in 2010. Whatever adversity they face in Raleigh, it probably won’t be as big a hurdle to overcome as what they accomplished here in the First Four, fighting their way back from that awful start. In the end, though, they made the plane.

Vols fought their way onto the plane to Raleigh By Mike Strange, Knoxville News Sentinel March 19, 2014

DAYTON, Ohio – No matter where you stand on Cuonzo Martin, give the man credit. He doesn’t quit. And his team doesn’t quit. The perseverance exhibited by Tennessee’s Vols in their 78-65 overtime victory over Iowa on Wednesday night is a direct reflection on their coach. After a horrible start and some sinking spells in the second half, the Vols refused to go quietly and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. UT now has a second-round matchup with No. 6 seed UMass in the East Regional at Raleigh, N.C., on Friday afternoon. The winner of that game plays again on Sunday, with Duke the likely opponent. Among the spoils of victory is an upgrade of Martin’s job security. But if he is feeling any pressure, he doesn’t show it. “I don’t deal with criticism. It’s time and energy wasted,” he said afterward. “… I’m consumed with success.” By beating Iowa, Martin became just the fourth coach in UT history to win an NCAA Tournament game. Think about it. Only Don DeVoe, Jerry Green and Pearl coached the Vols to victories in the NCAAs prior to Wednesday night. For UT, the encouraging thing is they played one of their best games of the season when the pressure was greatest. After falling behind 8-0 barely 4 ½ minutes in, they righted themselves with a run at the end of the first half and closed out the Hawkeyes with a dominant performance in overtime. “Winning like this is good,” said junior guard Josh Richardson. “It came at the right time.” Richardson was the difference. After going scoreless in the first half, he finished with 17 points and eight rebounds while also hounding Roy Devyn Marble on defense. Marble finished with only seven points, 10 below his average, and was rattled into 3-for-15 shooting. Richardson scored six straight points during one key stretch in the second half, capping the run with a drive down the left baseline and an outrageous dunk. Later, he drove into traffic and dished a pass to Antonio Barton, whose 3-pointer pushed the Vols up 59-57 with 3:06 remaining in regulation. “I knew we needed a spark,” Richardson said with a shrug. UT has won six of its last seven games, with the lone defeat coming against No. 1 overall seed Florida in


the semifinals of the SEC Tournament last Saturday. A team that was so disappointing and frustrating for much of the season has hit its stride when it matters most. “The guys just made a commitment down the stretch,” Martin said. While Martin steered clear of discussing his job status at UT, there is no disputing there is some unease. He is under contract through the 2016 season but it is no secret that he wants an extension that would give him more security and perhaps help in recruiting. Last summer, Martin got a $50,000 raise but no extension on the original five-year deal he signed when he left Missouri State for UT after the 2011 season. He makes about $1.35 million a year. UT athletics director Dave Hart has not addressed Martin’s contract status publicly in recent months except to say he would evaluate everything at season’s end. He has made it clear, however, that postseason success is an important factor in his evaluation process. With that in mind, this overtime victory is a plus. “Coach Martin does a great job of keeping us together as a family,” said Jordan McRae, who topped the Vols with 20 points. “… We don’t let outside influences affect anything that we’re doing.” Although Hart has not shown his hand, most signs point to Martin’s return for a fourth year with the Vols. Assuming he is back, Martin would be coaching a roster comprised entirely of his recruits. This year’s team has two key players, McRae and Jeronne Maymon, that were leftovers from the Bruce Pearl regime. But any meaningful talk about next season should be put on hold with UT’s progress in the NCAA bracket. The next order of business is the game against UMass, a team from the Atlantic 10 that the Vols match up with very well. One thing the Vols should try to do on Friday is avoid another horrible start like the one against Iowa. The Hawkeyes showed four different defenses on UT’s first four possessions and it was as if the Vols had failed to prepare for it. Early on, UT had no answers except a couple of ugly airballs. “It’s the NCAA Tournament. We were nervous and it showed,” McRae said. Iowa led 29-19 inside the four-minute mark of the first half before UT closed the half with a 7-0 rush that ended when McRae grabbed a loose ball and flipped it through the net. Later, McRae had a chance to win the game at the end of regulation but his step-back 18-footer was off. No worries. The Vols outscored Iowa 14-1 in overtime. Thus, the team that didn’t quit survived and advanced.

Vols save best for last in First Four win over Iowa By Jay Clemons, Fox Sports.com March 19, 2014

Here are three things we gleaned from Tennessee’s 78-65 victory over Iowa in overtime, allowing the 11th-seeded Volunteers (down 12 in the first half) to advance to the Round of 64 against No. 6 UMass (Midwest Region -- Friday in Raleigh, N.C.). 1. The Volunteers saved their best for last ... even if that run of excellence didn’t occur until after 40 minutes

There are disparate ways to view Tennessee’s comeback win in Dayton, capping a four-pack of exciting First Four clashes for Tuesday/Wednesday: The optimist would point to the Volunteers taking the Hawkeyes’ best shots -- early in the first half and midway through the second half -- and still hanging on to briefly take the lead in regulation ... before pulling away for good in the end. They’d also point to the incredible balance of UT’s starting five, with the quintet -- featuring Jordan McRae (20 points), Jarnell Stokes, Josh Richardson (17) and Antonio Barton (10) and Jeronne Maymon (nine) -- accounting for 74 of the team’s 78 points. They might even point to Tennessee holding a significant rebounding advantage for the night (37- 30), despite having less height, length and frontcourt manpower than Iowa. The pessimist, in turn, would cite the galling lack of bench production as a bad omen for Friday’s clash with a deep, athletic and sneaky-good UMass club. They might find fault with Tennessee’s poor transition defense, which allowed a few buckets off made baskets against Iowa, perhaps the result of each starter logging at least 32 minutes. They’ll also point to the Volunteers’ extreme woes when shooting beyond the arc: Of Tennessee’s last three games, the club has made only 9 of 43 shots ... for a shockingly low 21 percent. Ultimately, though, everyone must view the Vols’ defensive effort in overtime as a major plus, holding the perhaps-out-of-gas Hawkeyes to just one point and zero field goals in the extra session. 2. Jarnell Stokes’ stellar statistical night was somewhat overshadowed by his middling defense Yes, Stokes tallied 18 points (on 8 of 11 shooting) and 13 rebounds, but he also struggled mightily against Iowa’s Adam Woodbury, allowing the Hawkeyes sophomore to net a career-high 16 points (also on 8 of 11 shooting). Each Woodbury basket came from short-to-

medium range, the happy result of having better position on just about every shot attempt. It helps to be 7-foot-1, for sure, or roughly five inches taller than the brawnier Stokes, but Woodbury shouldn’t have gotten so many clean looks at the basket -- especially with Iowa star Roy Devyn Marble (seven points) connecting on only 3 of 15 shots. Fast forward to Friday, as Stokes will most likely be paired against 6-foot-10 power forward Cady Lalanne, a viable double-double threat for UMass, who scored in double figures for 15 of his first 18 games this season. Conversely, Lalanne hasn’t reached double figures in six of his last seven outings -- a similar slump shared by Woodbury ... prior to his breakout in Dayton. 3. Tennessee vs. UMass should be an interesting clash of styles, both similar and disparate The Minutemen coaches and administrators deserve props for going heavy on power-conference schools throughout November and December, setting the team up for an enriching campaign in Atlantic 10 play -- where all six NCAA tourney-bound clubs earned 10-plus league wins. In a seven-week span before New Year’s Eve, UMass (24-8, 10-6) beat Boston College, LSU, Nebraska, New Mexico, BYU, Clemson and Providence (overtime) and lost only to Florida State; and with the seven wins from above, the Minutemen had an average victory margin of 9.1 points. Of equal importance, UMass demonstrated a knack for flourishing under any scoring conditions, routinely outlasting teams in the 80s or 90s ... or successfully squeezing each possession in conservative outings of 50 or 60 points. Which brings us to Tennessee’s ongoing badge of courage -- not allowing more than 74 points in any game this year. From a common-opponents standpoint, both Tennessee and UMass both handled LSU during the regular season, with the Vols routing the Tigers by 18 (68-50) and the Minutemen squeaking by in a 92-90 thriller (Nov. 12 in Amherst, Mass.).

“Coach Martin does a great job of keeping us together as a family. We don’t let outside influences affect anything that we’re doing.”
