• On UT’s off day Saturday, the Vols were scheduled to practice at Antilles High School at noon before embarking on an afternoon catamaran snorkeling tour. • Through three games this season, four Vols are averaging more than 10 points per game, and eight different players are averaging at least 7.0 points. 10 Vols play more than 13 minutes on average. • Sophomore shooting guard Scotty Hopson is shooting the 3-ball as well as anyone in the country thus far and has scored a career-high 25 points in each of the last two games. • Although he is terrified of the large iguanas that are seen all over the team hotel grounds, shooting guard Cameron Tatum has shown no fear offensively coming off the UT bench. The redshirt sophomore ranks second on the team with 14.0 points per game and is shooting 73 percent from the field. • Tennessee boasts a +14.7 turnover margin and scored 50 points off 35 East Carolina turnovers on Friday. The Pirates’ turnovers total was the highest by any opponent during the Bruce Pearl era. • The Vols’ 124-49 home win over UNC Asheville on Tuesday—marked Bruce Pearl’s 100th win as Tennessee’s head coach. In his fifth-year on Rocky Top, Pearl reached the 100-win mark in just his 137th game (second-fastest in UT men’s basketball history). See full note on Page 7. • Tuesday’s 75-point victory over UNCA marked the Bulldog’s largest margin of defeat in school history, and UT’s 124 points were the most ever allowed by Asheville. • Tennessee seniors Wayne Chism and Tyler Smith each logged double-doubles in the Vols’ seasonopening win over Austin Peay Nov. 13. It was the second time the frontcourt duo posted doubledoubles in the same game. The other game was last season’s home game against Alabama (March 8). • This is the fifth time—and the second under head coach Bruce Pearl—that the Vols have debuted in the top 10 in the preseason AP poll. See the complete polls listing on Page 4. • The Vols return a total of nine letterwinners, including all five starters, from last year’s squad that posted a 21-13 overall record, won the SEC Eastern Division and advanced to the NCAA Tournament.


Tennessee Trends • Tennessee is holding its opponents to 56.3 ppg, and opponents are shooting just .250 from 3-point range. The Vols’ scoring margin is +47.7 ppg. • Tennessee has an all-time record of 1,445-921-2 in its 101st season of varsity basketball. • In all eight of his full seasons as a Division I head coach, Bruce Pearl’s teams have won at least 10 games in conference play. • Tennessee’s 78.4 points per game rank led the SEC last year and ranked 16th nationally. Bruce Pearl’s teams have led their respective league in scoring in 16 of Pearl’s 17 full seasons as a head coach. • The Vols are 30-2 in non-conference home games under Bruce Pearl. • Under Bruce Pearl, UT is 94-9 when leading or tied with five minutes left in the game. • UT is 65-6 when scoring 80 or more points under the direction of Bruce Pearl. • Bruce Pearl is 18-10 against ranked teams at UT. • Tennessee is 57-7 at Thompson-Boling Arena since the start of the 2005-06 season. • Tennessee is 257-91 in 23 seasons in ThompsonBoling Arena. The Vols have posted winning home records in 18 of their 21 full seasons in the facility. Noting DePaul DePaul downed Columbia 59-53 to open its season with a win Tuesday before toppling UNI Friday ... Last season was a forgettable one for the Blue Demons, though, as they turned in a final record of 9-24 and went winless (0-18) in Big East play … DePaul actually started last season 4-0 before becoming the first team to go winless in Big East play since Miami did so in 1993-94 … Consequently, fifth-year head coach Jerry Wainright’s entire staff turned over during the off-season (including the departure of

his son, Scott) … DePaul under Wainwright did post a 20-win season in 2006-07 … Junior big man Mac Koshwal (15.5 ppg, 15.5 rpg, 4.0 apg) appears to have recovered from a foot injury a year ago and will be supported down low by 6-11 sophomore Krys Faber (1.0 ppg, 2.5 rpg), 7-2 sophomore Keni Obi (2008-09: 1.7 ppg, 1.3 rpg) and swingman Jeremiah Kelly (11.5 rpg, 5.5 rpg, 3.0 rpg) … Kelly led all scorers in Friday’s game against UNI with 18 points ... The Blue Demons have welcomed a pair of transfers in sophomore wing Eric Wallace (Ohio State) and junior guard Mike Stovall (Oregon State), both of whom have been starting … Senior guard Will Walker (12.0 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 3.0 apg) anchors the Demons’ backcourt … Depth could ultimately prove to be DePaul’s biggest hurdle as it looks to make strides as a program in 2009-10 ... Mark Pancratz, Tennessee’s assistant to the head coach, is the son of former DePaul forward Andy Pancratz (1973-76) ... And the Vols’ team academic counselor, Kelly Brock (who is with the team in St. Thomas this week) worked at DePaul before being hired at UT in June 2008. The DePaul Series Tennessee won its only previous hardwood meeting with DePaul, claiming a 96-61 victory in Knoxville on Dec. 14, 1973 … The Volunteers own a 36-41 all-time record against current members of the Big East Conference, including a 3-1 mark under Bruce Pearl… UT was a perfect 2-0 against the Big East last season, logging neutral-site wins over Georgetown (Old Spice Classic in Orlando, Fla.) and Marquette (SEC/Big East Invitational in Nashville, Tenn.). On Nov. 22 Tennessee owns a 4-1 all-time record on Nov. 22 ... The Vols’ most recent game on that date stands as the lone loss, as UT suffered a 56-44 loss to Butler in the 2006 NIT Preseason Tip-Off at New York City’s Madison Square Garden ... That loss stands as Tennessee’s lowest scoring output during the Bruce Pearl era ... UT’s four Nov. 22 wins came against Louisiana Lafayette (2005), Stanford (2004), Gardner-Webb (2002) and Elon (1999). A Family Affair In addition to the numerous staff members’ families who have made the trip with the team this week, a number of UT players have their families on hand as well ... Wayne Chism, Kenny Hall, Scotty Hopson, Bobby Maze, J.P. Prince and of course, Steven Pearl, all have parents here for the games. Up Next: Purdue or St. Joseph’s If UT wins Sunday, it would face the winner of the St. Joseph’s-Purdue game Monday at 8:30 p.m. ET in the Paradise Jam championship game ... A Tennessee loss on Sunday means the Vols would play the St. Joseph’s-Purdue loser Monday at 6 p.m. ET in the third-place game.

The Paradise Jam This year’s event marks the 10th anniversary of the US. Virgin Islands Paradise Jam, but Tennessee is making its first-ever appearance at the tournament ... Joining UT in the eight-team field is Boston College (Bruce Pearl’s alma mater), DePaul, East Carolina, Northern Iowa, Purdue, South Dakota State and St. Joseph’s ... Tennessee is one of four teams in the field who made last year’s NCAA Tournament and turned in a final RPI of 75 or better (Boston College, Northern Iowa and Purdue are the others). Vols Making Their First Appearance At Paradise Jam; Smith Making His Second Tennessee’s trip to St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, marks the program’s first-ever appearance at the event … But senior guard/forward Tyler Smith knows his way around the island, as he competed in the 2006 Paradise Jam as a true freshman at Iowa … The Hawkeyes went 1-2 in that year’s tournament (a win over Toledo before losses to Alabama and Villanova), and Smith averaged 19.7 ppg … In Iowa’s lone win at the event, Smith poured in 28 points while also logging six rebounds and five assists … His 11 field goals and 17 field-goal attempts against the Rockets still stand as his NCAA career highs … In the semifinals vs. 10th-ranked Alabama, Smith again led the Hawkeyes in scoring with 19 points; he also added seven rebounds and four assists … Smith tallied 12 points and three rebounds in a consolation-bracket loss to Villanova. Recent History Predicts Vols Could Do Well At Paradise Jam Tennessee reached a pair of tournament championship games last season ... Last November, the Vols defeated Siena and Georgetown en route to the Old Spice Classic championship game, where they fell to Gonzaga ... And more recently this

All-Big Ten forward JaJuan Johnson is a legitimate double-double threat night-in and night-out ...

St. Joseph’s beat Boston College 84-80 Friday to advance to the Paradise Jam semifinals ... Picked to finish in the bottom half of the Atlantic 10 Conference, the Hawks rely heavily on veteran returning starters Garrett Williamson (12.0 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 3.3 apg), Darrin Govens (15.3 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 2.0 apg) and Idris Hilliard (12.0 ppg, 7.0 rpg) ... Freshman guard Carl Jones (15.7 ppg, 3.0 rpg) is the Hawks’ leading scorer thus far, however ... Jones was a highly touted prep prospect who received scholarship offers from ACC, Big East, Big Ten and Big 12 programs ... In the frontcourt, Hilliard is the only returning player who started multiple games last season, so 6-8 sophomore Bryant Irwin (2.3 ppg, 2.3 rpg) will be looked upon to contribute down low for the Hawks ... He is joined in the post by 6-11 redshirt sophomore (and Bucknell transfer) Todd O’Brien (7.3 ppg, 8.0 rpg) ... The Hawks have a -12.0 rebounding margin this season, perhaps proving why preseason prognosticators pointed to the frontcourt when assessing potential weak spots in the Saint Joseph’s roster ... The Hawks, however, did hit the offensive glass in their win Friday, pulling down 11 offensive rebounds

Hopson Dialed In From Long Distance Sophomore shooting guard Scotty Hopson has more than doubled his scoring average from last season (9.2 ppg) and leads the Vols with an average of 22.0 points through two games ... Most impressive about Hopson’s offensive performance has been his shooting from 3-point range, as he has made 14-of-18 attempts (.778) ... His six 3-pointers against UNC Asheville Nov. 17 were a careerhigh, as was his 25 points scored (which he then matched three days later in UT’s win over ECU). Stout Defense Early On Tennessee’s defense has been outstanding through the Vols’ first three games ... The highlight thus far has been holding UNC Asheville without a field goal for the first 16:53 of the game Nov. 17 ... Tennessee also held the Bulldogs to .239 shooting from the field (16-of-67) and .063 shooting from long range (1-of-16) ... And in the Nov. 20 rout of East Carolina, the Vols turned 35 ECU turnovers into 50 points ... Through three games, UT’s opponents are hitting just 25.0 percent of their 3-point attempts.

The Saint Joseph’s Series Tennessee trails its all-time series with Saint Joseph’s 1-2, dating to 1948 ... The Hawks notched home wins in Philly in 1948 and 1998, but UT won the lone meeting in Knoxville by a score of 74-54 on Dec. 9, 1997.

Pearl Has Led UT To Three East Division Titles Despite playing in a division that boasts the NCAA’s all-time winningest program (Kentucky) and a Florida program that claimed two of the last four national championships, Tennessee has won three SEC Eastern Division crowns under fifth-year head coach Bruce Pearl ... Road success within divisional play has been key, as UT over the last four seasons owns a 13-7 (.650) divisional road record; no other SEC East team has more than nine such wins.

Unbelievable Increase In Attendance Tennessee’s attendance has increased by more than 8,000 fans per game in the four seasons Bruce Pearl has been on Rocky Top ... Tennessee’s increase in attendance is higher than the average attendance of more than 250 Division I programs, including teams from the SEC, ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Pac 10, Conference USA, WAC, Mountain West and Missouri Valley conferences ... The Vols saw their 5 millionth fan pass through the Thompson-Boling Arena turnstiles in 2007-08 ... Tennessee ranked fourth nationally with an average of 20,483 fans per home game last season.

Below is a look at last year’s attendance leaders:

Home Crowds of 20,000 Nothing New For Vols Tennessee has played in front of 33 home crowds of 20,000 or larger during the Bruce Pearl era ... 10 of UT’s fifteen home crowds last season were larger than 20,000, with the crowd of 22,326 for the Gonzaga game marking the largest at ThompsonBoling Arena since capacity was reduced from 24,535 to 21,678 prior to the 2007-08 season.

Vols Looking To Extend New Home Win Streak The Vols entered the 2009-10 season looking to start another lengthy home win streak ... After posting back-to-back 16-0 home records in 2006-07 and 2007-08, the Vols turned in an uncharacteristic 10-5 mark at Thompson-Boling Arena last season ... Tennessee’s 37-game home winning streak (the longest in school history and second-longest in Division I at the time it ended) came to an end on Jan. 7, 2009, when Gonzaga topped the Vols in overtime 89-79 ... Now in his fifth season at UT, Bruce Pearl is 57-7 at Thompson-Boling Arena.

The Volunteers At Thompson-Boling Arena Thompson-Boling Arena is hosting its 23rd season in 2009-10 ... The Vols have won 73.9 percent of their games in Thompson-Boling Arena and have ranked in the top 10 nationally in attendance 10 times, including last year, when UT ranked fourth nationally with 20,483 fans per game. • Tennessee is 257-91 (.739) in its 23rd season in Thompson-Boling Arena. • Since the 1998 season, the Vols are 157-32 (.831) in Thompson-Boling Arena. • The Vols are 73-23 against SEC teams at home over the last 11 seasons. • Tennessee has won 20 of its last 23 SEC games at Thompson-Boling Arena. • UT has won 90 of its last 99 home games against non-conference opponents. • UT is 30-2 in home games against non-conference opponents under Bruce Pearl. • Tennessee finished both the 2006-07 and 2007-08 seasons with a 16-0 home record. • This is the third straight season in which Sporting News has tabbed Thompson-Boling Arena the “best homecourt advantage” in the Southeastern Conference.

Tennessee Stands Alone Tennessee is the only Division I school ever to rank in the top five nationally in attendance for football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball in the same year ... UT accomplished that lofty feat for the sixth time in 2008-09. Vols Enjoying New-Look Facilities The University of Tennessee invested more than $35 million into its basketball facilities between the end of the 2006-07 campaign and the start of 200708 ... During that eight-month period, UT added a basketball-only practice facility and began the first phase of renovations to Thompson-Boling Arena ... The $19 million first phase of renovations included the addition of 32 luxury suites that are located in the existing north balcony, a loge area just below the luxury suites that includes 166 side court seats, new seats for the entire arena, a $3 million centerhung scoreboard and concourse refurbishments, such as graphics and other amenities ... The renovations took Thompson-Boling’s capacity down from 24,535 to 21,678 ... The Vols’ new state-of-the-art basketball practice facility, Pratt Pavilion, houses two full-size gymnasiums, one for each of the men’s and women’s basketball teams, as well as an athletic training room, weight room and film-study room ... Prior to this season, a pedestrian bridge was constructed leading from the G-10 parking garage to the arena, an elevator was added at the arena’s northwest end as a customer service amenity and new exterior signage has been installed on the building’s facade ... The UT athletics department announced in November that it plans to begin a renovation of the men’s and women’s basketball offices at the arena in April, creating a new and impressive “front door” for the basketball programs. Legends In The Rafters Four Tennessee basketball legends are memorialized with banners in the Thompson-Boling Arena rafters ... The UT men’s basketball program had never retired a jersey prior to the 2006-07 season, but after nearly 100 years of hardwood history, Bernard King (1975-77) was the first player to earn that distinguished honor ... King’s No. 53 jersey was officially retired during a halftime ceremony at the Feb. 13, 2007, home game against Kentucky (UT won 89-85) ... During that same ceremony, banners honoring longtime head coach Ray Mears (1962-77) and beloved radio “Voice of the Vols” John Ward (1964-99) also were unveiled ... Then on March 2, 2008, Ernie Grunfeld (1974-77) became the second UT player to receive the ultimate honor, when his No. 22 jersey was unveiled in the rafters during halftime of Tennessee’s 63-60 victory over Kentucky.


Pearls Enjoyed Golden Summer in Israel Tennessee head coach Bruce Pearl fulfilled one of his professional dreams this past summer as he led Maccabi USA’s Open Men’s Basketball Team to a gold medal at the 18th World Maccabiah Games in Israel ... Maccabi USA’s overtime victory over Israel in the gold-medal game gave the U.S. just its third gold medal at the quadrennial Games in the last 24 years, as teams from nations such as France, Israel and Russia have risen to prominence in recent years ... In its six contests at the Maccabiah Games, the U.S. Maccabi Team outscored its opponents by an average of 35.8 points per game (104.8 to 69.0) en route to a 5-1 record ... UT forward Steven Pearl starred on the American squad, as did Dan Grunfeld, son of two-time Tennessee All-America honoree Ernie Grunfeld ... Bruce Pearl’s oldest daughter, Jacqui, also worked with the team in a managerial/administrative capacity.

Fans can now vote online at UTsports. com for this year’s OUTLIVE t-shirt design, with the winning design scheduled to be announced Jan. 4 ... The highly successful OUTLIVE initiative was the idea of current graduate manager Brooks Savage, who was inspired to action after witnessing the impact cancer had on the UT basketball team (Bruce Pearl’s mother is a cancer survivor; Tyler Smith’s father passed after a battle with lung cancer; former Vol Chris Lofton quietly and courageously underwent treatment for testicular cancer during his senior season in 2007-08).

A native of Nashville, Bone will add depth and toughness to the UT backcourt. Tabb Leaves Program It was announced Oct. 28 that senior guard Josh Tabb had withdrawn from the university and returned to his hometown of Carbondale, Ill., to be with his mother, who is ill ...

Vols Logging Lots Of TV Time (Again) The Vols have played more than 50 nationally televised games and enjoyed tremendous national media exposure since Bruce Pearl took the program reins in the summer of 2005 ... All but one of Tennessee’s 34 games last year were televised, and the Vols are scheduled to appear on TV 29 times this regular season ... The Vols play on ESPN or ESPN2 nine times, CSS five times, CBS three times, FSN five times, the SEC Network three times, ESPNU twice and SportSouth two times. Vols Featured on ESPN College Gameday Matchup For Third Straight Year The Volunteers’ Feb. 13 game at Kentucky is that week’s featured matchup on ESPN College Gameday ... This marks the third straight season that Tennessee is featured on College Gameday, tying the Vols for the nation’s second-longest active appearance streak on the popular show ... Tennessee’s is 2-0 all-time in Gameday contests, having won at No. 1 Memphis on Feb. 23, 2008, and also posting a win over Florida last season in Knoxville (Jan. 31, 2009).

Where Are They Now? Former Vols currently playing professionally: Brandon Crump (2002-05) - LG Sakers (KBL) in Korea Marcus Haislip (2000-02) - San Antonio Spurs (NBA) Chris Lofton (2004-08) - Caja Liboral (ACB/Euroleague) in Spain Scooter McFadgon (2004-05) - Maine Red Claws (NBDL) in Portland, Maine.

Pearl Leading Charge for King’s HOF Induction UT head coach Bruce Pearl is one of many voices nationwide voicing their support for Bernard King to be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame ... Pearl’s take: “Bernard King should be in the basketball hall of fame in Springfield. One of the things that I’m committed to is to put forth everything that is required.” ... A three-time first-team AllAmerica and three-time SEC Player of the Year, King led the SEC in scoring in all three of his seasons at Tennessee ... A Brooklyn, N.Y., native, King was a four-time NBA All-Star and averaged 22.5 points per game during his professional career ... Eight times he scored 50 or more points in an NBA game ... King is the NBA’s 22nd all-time leading scorer (19,655 points) and the seventh-leading scorer in UT history (all six Vols ahead of him played four years). Big Apple Trip, Outstanding Opponents Highlight Future UT Schedules Tennessee has signed contracts with numerous marquee opponents for upcoming seasons ... The Vols next season will travel to New York City for the 2010 NIT Preseason Tip-Off ... Tennessee also continues its exciting non-conference series with Memphis and Southern California next year ... The Volunteers will travel to UConn during the 2010-11 season, and UT plays host to UConn in the second half of the home-and-home series during the 201112 season ... During Bruce Pearl’s tenure at UT, the Vols have built schedules that rank among the toughest in the nation, featuring non-conference opponents such as Texas, Gonzaga, Ohio State, Memphis, Kansas, Oklahoma State, Georgetown, USC and North Carolina, just to name a few. Non-Schollie Nuggets They’re Tennessee’s unsung heroes, learning different teams’ systems every week and preparing the Vols’ rotation players for each opponent ... Here are some nuggets of knowledge about UT’s non-scholarship team members ... The son of religious missionaries, senior guard Quinn Cannington was born and raised until the age of 13 in Manila, Philippines ... Junior guard Michael Hubert graduated from Hendersonville High School in Hendersonville, Tenn., with a 4.2 cumulative GPA and also played four years on the tennis team ... Junior guard Josh Bone, who transferred from Southern Illinois

University and will be eligible after the fall semester, is a Nashville native who played high school ball with current Golden State Warrior Brandan Wright at Brentwood Academy ... Bone and Wright remain best friends. Get Your Umbrella During pregame shootaround prior to the Vols’ season-opening win over Austin Peay on Nov. 13, walk-on guard Michael “The Mike-rowave” Hubert was overheard saying to some student managers, “When it rains, it pours” as he drained one 3-point shot after another ... He wasn’t kidding, and he proved that in the closing minutes of UT’s win, as he sank his only two field-goal attempts—both 3-pointers—during the final two minutes of the game ... Hubert also nailed his lone 3-ball in the win over UNC Asheville and is a perfect 3-for-3 on the year. Shooting Guard McRae Signs With UT Midway, Ga., native Jordan McRae signed with UT and will play basketball for the Volunteers beginning with the 2010-11 season ... A 6-foot-6, 180-pound shooting guard, McRae is a senior at Liberty County High School and plans to enroll at Tennessee next summer ... As a junior last year at LCHS, McRae averaged 23 points per game and earned 2008-09 honorable mention All-State honors from both the Georgia Sports Writers Association and the Atlanta Journal Constitution while leading the Panthers to the round of 16 in the Class AAA state playoffs and a 20-6 overall record ... Scout.com and ESPN’s Scouts, Inc., both rank the rangy and explosive McRae as the sixthbest shooting guard in the class of 2010 ... McRae is listed on the ESPNU Top-100 chart as the class of 2010’s 29th-best overall prospect ... This past summer, McRae helped guide Team USA 2010 to the championship at the “adidas Nations” tournament in Dallas ... Tennessee’s current roster already includes a pair of Georgia natives in sophomore guard Cameron Tatum (Lithonia) and freshman forward Kenny Hall (Stone Mountain). Pearl’s Volunteers Dominant On State Circuit After Tennessee’s defeat of Austin Peay in the season-opener Nov. 13, Tennessee State is now the only remaining Division I basketball program in the state the Volunteers have not faced during Bruce Pearl’s tenure … Since Pearl’s debut season in 2005-06, the Vols have played—and beaten—every in-state Division I program except the Tigers … Those schools include Austin Peay, Belmont, Chattanooga, ETSU, Lipscomb, Memphis, Middle Tennessee, Tennessee Tech, UT-Martin and Vanderbilt … Under Pearl, Tennessee owns a 20-4 (.833) record against in-state Division I teams.

* Tennessee school record

Tennessee under Bruce Pearl has rebounded well from losses. Pearl’s UT teams are 27-10 (.730) in games immediately following a loss.


Bruce Pearl

Head Coach 418-121 (18th yr.) • 101-37 (5th yr. at UT)

Tennessee under Bruce Pearl is the first program in the storied, 76-year history of the SEC to finish ahead of Kentucky in the league standings for four straight seasons.

Collecting Championships In 17 full seasons as a college head coach, Bruce Pearl has led his teams to 15 championships (including four at UT): 2009 SEC Eastern Division Championship, 2008 SEC Championship; 2008 SEC Eastern Division Championship, 2006 SEC Eastern Division Championship, 2005 Horizon League Tournament Championship, 2005 Horizon League Championship, 2004 Horizon League Championship, 2003 Horizon League Tournament Championship, 2001 Great Lakes Valley Championship, 1997 Great Lakes Valley Championship, 1996 Greaat Lakes Valley Championship, 1995 NCAA Division II National Championship, 1995 NCAA Division II Great Lakes Region Championship, 1994 NCAA Division II Great Lakes Region Championship, 1994 Great Lakes Valley Championship ... This past summer, he added an international championship when he led the Maccabi USA Open Men’s Basketball Team to the gold medal at the 18th World Maccabiah Games in Israel. SEC Success Tennessee’s 46 SEC wins over the last four seasons are the most in the conference over that period ... The Vols finished with the second-best record in the SEC in both of Pearl’s first two years and captured the SEC title outright last season with a 14-2 record ... In 200506, the Vols won the SEC East with a 12-4 conference mark and then posted a 10-6 league mark in 2006-07 that tied for second in the East and in the overall league standings ... 2006 and 2007 NCAA champion Florida has won 40 league games over the last four seasons to rank second behind UT, and under Pearl, the Vols are 7-1 vs. the Gators.

We Are Family Being part of the Tennessee family is important to Pearl as he works tirelessly to promote all sports at Tennessee ... He asks his players to support the other teams at UT as those teams support basketball ... At a Lady Vols basketball game two seasons ago, he joined five of his players as they painted their chests and cheered from the student section ... After Lady Vols’ coach Pat Summitt returned the favor by leading cheers at a men’s game later in the season Pearl said, “It’s a pretty strong family here. How can you lose when you’ve got that kind of family support?” Classroom Commitment Tennessee’s success on the court hasn’t come at the expense of academics ... The Vols have produced 22 SEC Academic Honor Roll selections in Pearl’s four full seasons ... Nine members of the basketball team (more than half the squad) earned Academic All-SEC recognition in 2006-07 ... Six different Vols earned the right to wear the VOLScholar patch on their jersey this semester (3.0 GPA or better during the spring semester). Style Points Tennessee has been one of the highest-scoring teams in the nation the last three years, finishing the 2006-07 season ranked ninth nationally with 80.9 points per game, ranking sixth in the country in 2007-08 with 81.8 ppg and ranking 16th last season ... Pearl’s teams have led their conference in scoring 16 of the 17 years he has been a head coach ... Tennesseehas led the Southeastern Conference in scoring in each of Pearl’s four seasons ... Defense has also been a key ingredient to UT’s success, as the Vols have led the league in steals in three of the last four years, including a school record 336 pilfers in 2006-07.

Tony Jones Associate Head Coach Concordia Univ., 1993 Fifth Season at UT Tony Jones is entering his fifth season as an associate head coach at Tennessee and his ninth on Bruce Pearl’s coaching staff. Jones’ responsibilities include recruiting, scheduling and working with the Vols’ perimeter players. An instrumental force in landing some of the influential players in his team’s successes, he has made in-roads to signing a number of the top players in the nation. In two of his three seasons at Tennessee, Jones helped the Vols sign recruiting classes that have been ranked among the top 10 in the nation and have included the likes of All-SEC performer Wayne Chism and McDonald’s All-America Scotty Hopson. “Tony has prepared himself to be a head coach,” Pearl said. “His experience provides him with a wealth of knowledge, and his ability to communicate has made him an effective teacher.” With Jones helping to build its annual slate of opponents, Tennessee’s schedules have ranked among the nation’s toughest. The Vols have sought to face some of the country’s premier programs, including teams such as Memphis, Gonzaga, Texas, Ohio State and Kansas. Along with such ambitious scheduling—Tennessee’s RPI has been in the top25 each of the last three seasons—comes prominent national exposure, as UT has played 52 games on national television over the past four years. Jones came to Tennessee with 12 seasons of collegiate coaching experience after spending four seasons at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) as an associate head coach. Prior to joining the UWM staff, Jones spent five seasons at Toledo and three years at Buffalo. In his 16 seasons of collegiate coaching, Jones has helped direct his teams to nine postseason tournament bids, including six NCAA Tournament appearances the last seven years. Three times (2005, 2007 and 2008) in the past five years he has coached teams appearing in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. Tennessee has experienced unprecedented success during the four years with Jones on the bench. The Vols have averaged 24.5 wins during those seasons and have won three SEC Eastern Division championships. The 2008 team captured the overall SEC title outright for the first time in 41 years, won a school record 31 games and earned the first No. 1 ranking in school history. Each of his four seasons at UT has resulted in NCAA Tournament appearances, including two trips to the Sweet 16. Two times the Vols have received No. 2 seeds in the NCAA Tournament—the highest in school history. After helping sign a class that was ranked sixth nationally in 2006, Jones was named one of the top recruiters in the nation by Rivals.com. In 2007, Rivals.com ranked Jones as one of the top-five assistant coaches in the nation. Jones got his first taste of coaching at his alma mater, Detroit Southwestern High School, where he served as an assistant varsity coach while also serving as head junior varsity coach from 1986-91. During this time he coached future NBA stars Jalen Rose (Phoenix Suns), Howard Eisley (Denver Nuggets) and Voshon Lenard (Portland Trailblazers), leading them to the mythical USA TODAY national title in 1991. He also served as head coach of Team AAU Michigan for three years (1991-93), posting a 35-1 record and capturing two AAU state championships. Jones was an All-City star at Southwestern and went on to earn All-Conference honors at Fisk University in Nashville. He earned a bachelor’s degree in health care administration from Concordia (Mich.) University. Jones and his wife, Pam, have four children—Tony II, Jamaal, Mercedes and Porscha. His brother, Bill, is a former member of the NBA’s New Jersey Nets and is currently the head coach of the Premier Basketball League’s Detroit Panthers.

Steve Forbes Assistant Coach Southern Arkansas, 1988 Fourth Season at UT Veteran coach Steve Forbes is in his fourth season as a member of the Tennessee staff. “Over the past couple years, Steve has made a tremendous impact on our recruiting,” UT head coach Bruce Pearl said. “But as a former head coach, Steve understands the challenges programs face in all aspects of the game. “Most recruiters are simply that—bring in talent every year, and then go back out on the road. But Steve is different. His strengths are the relationships and levels of trust he’s able to build with our student-athletes. He is a complete coach.” Forbes and Pearl first got to know each other when Pearl was an assistant at Iowa. The Vols have been the direct beneficiaries of the two working together. In the three seasons Forbes has sat alongside Pearl on the Tennessee bench, the Vols have won a total of 76 games and advanced to three consecutive NCAA Tournaments—making back-to-back Sweet 16 appearances in 2007 and 2008. The Vols have led the Southeastern Conference in steals in two of his three seasons on Rocky Top, and in 2008 they also led the league in 3-point field-goal percentage defense by holding teams to just 31.2-percent shooting. The Vols won a school-record 31 games in 2008, and their 14-2 league record gave the school its first outright SEC championship in more than 40 years. Following a 66-62 win at top-ranked Memphis on Feb. 23, 2008, UT earned the first No. 1 ranking in school history. In 2007, his first at Tennessee, Forbes helped direct the Vols to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament with wins over Long Beach State and ACC co-champion Virginia. UT’s 24 wins that year ranked second in school history at the time. Listed as the No. 8 assistant coach in the nation by FOXSports.com, Forbes has played a key role in recruiting top talent to Knoxville. Tennessee’s 2008 recruiting class was highlighted by McDonald’s All-America Scotty Hopson and was ranked seventh in the nation by Rivals.com. Forbes came to Tennessee after spending two seasons at Texas A&M, where he helped turn the Aggies from a team that had posted a 7-21 record the previous season and hadn’t received a postseason invitation in 11 years, to a program that averaged more than 21 wins in his two seasons and advanced to postseason play both years. A&M posted back-to-back seasons with the most Big 12 Conference wins in school history with Forbes on the bench. Texas A&M’s recruiting also benefited from Forbes’ experience, as each of the Aggie’s two recruiting classes during his time in College Station were ranked among the top 10 in the nation. Before joining Billy Gillispie’s coaching staff at Texas A&M, Forbes coached at Illinois State (2003-04) and spent three years at Louisiana Tech (2000-03), where he helped sign two nationally-ranked recruiting classes, including a top-10 class in 2003. In 2002 the Bulldogs posted a 22-10 record and went 2-1 in the National Invitation Tournament, their first postseason appearance in 10 years. In 1998 Forbes joined the Idaho coaching staff as an assistant coach before being promoted to associate head coach for the 1998-99 season. In his first season, the Vandals improved to 16-11 and signed a nationally-ranked recruiting class. Forbes compiled a 68-28 record in three years (1995-98) as the head coach at Barton County Community College in Great Bend, Kan. During his three seasons competing in the Jayhawk Conference, the Cougars produced three All-Americas, twice finished the season with a national ranking and earned victories over 15 nationally-ranked teams. After spending two years (1989-91) as an assistant coach at Southwestern Community College in Creston, Iowa, Forbes was promoted to head coach in March 1991. A native of Lone Tree, Iowa, Forbes graduated from Southern Arkansas University with a degree in secondary education in 1988. Forbes and his wife, Johnetta, have a daughter, Elizabeth, and two sons, Christopher and Johnathon.


Jason Shay Assistant Coach Iowa, 1995 Fifth Season at UT Jason Shay is in his ninth season on Bruce Pearl’s staff and his fifth year at Tennessee. “I’ve known Jason since he was a player at the University of Iowa,” Pearl said. “He has played in this system and believes in this style of basketball. He was an overachiever as a player and has continued to work hard as an assistant coach. His experiences have helped him make tremendous contributions to our players’ individual development. “Jason is my lead scout. He’s been able to take good players and make them better. He knows how to teach the game—both from an individual and a team standpoint.” Shay, who is responsible for recruiting and scouting in addition to administrative duties, came to Tennessee after spending four years on Pearl’s staff at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM). He was an assistant coach for UWM’s two NCAA Tournament appearances after spending his first two seasons as the director of basketball operations for the Panthers. Scouting reports put together by Shay have helped lead the Vols to an average of 24.5 wins per season, an outright SEC championship in 2008, three SEC Eastern Division crowns and four straight NCAA Tournament appearances— including back-to-back Sweet 16s in 1007 and 2008. Shay drew the scouting assignment against top-ranked Memphis in 2007-08, and Tennessee’s 66-62 victory over the Tigers vaulted the Vols into the No. 1 spot in both the Associated Press and ESPN/USA TODAY polls for the first time in school history. Having handled the Florida scout since joining the UT staff, Shay has helped the Vols post a 7-1 record against the Gators over the last four seasons. Shay served as an assistant basketball coach and assistant sports information director at Mercyhurst College in Erie, Pa., before rejoining Pearl at UWM. He helped lead Mercyhurst to a top-five ranking in the NCAA Division II Great Lakes Region while assisting with on-court coaching strategies. Shay also was responsible for individual workouts, the team’s strength program, film exchange, scouting reports and monitoring the academic progress of the student-athletes. Shay played four seasons at the University of Iowa under the tutelage of Dr. Tom Davis. During that time, the Hawkeyes advanced to two NCAA Tournaments and won the 1992 San Juan Shootout. It was in Iowa City where Shay and Pearl first crossed paths, as Pearl was an assistant coach at Iowa from 1986-92. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Health Promotion at Iowa and a master’s degree in Sports Management in 1998 from Western Illinois University. Shay and his wife, Jana, have a daughter, Peija, and a son, Joah.

Ken Johnson Dir. of Basketball Operations College of Idaho, 1993 Fifth Season at UT Ken Johnson is in his fifth season at Tennessee and his 11th year as a member of Bruce Pearl’s staff. Johnson and Pearl first joined forces in 1999 when Johnson came to the University of Southern Indiana as an assistant coach, and the relationship continued when Pearl moved to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. In the 11 seasons Johnson has assisted Pearl, their teams have combined to post a 240-78 record. “It is really important to surround young people with good role models,” Pearl said. “Ken is a very hard worker who genuinely cares about these kids. He has been with me longer than anyone on my staff and he knows how I expect things to be done. He sets the bar high for our student-athletes and provides them with the guidance and support they require to be successful.” Johnson has seen the Vols succeed both on the court and in the classroom. In 2006-07, UT won the third-most games in school history while advancing to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. Meanwhile, seven Vols were named to the 2006-07 SEC Winter Academic Honor Roll for their work in the classroom. During the 2007-08 season, Johnson kept the Vols focused in the classroom and the community while they compiled the best record in school history (31-5) on the court and placed six players on the SEC Winter Academic Honor Roll. In total during his four years in Knoxville, Tennessee has garnered 18 Academic All-SEC awards. At UWM, Johnson was responsible for working with the Panthers post players while also scouting opponents. During those four seasons, the Panthers posted an 86-38 record and received three postseason invitations, including a trip to the 2005 NCAA Tournament in which they advanced to the Sweet 16. Johnson spent two seasons at USI as an assistant coach where he was responsible for video breakdown, scouting of opposing teams and individual player development. During those two seasons, the Screaming Eagles posted a 51-10 record, won a Great Lakes Valley Conference championship and made two NCAA Division II Tournament appearances. USI earned No. 1 rankings in both of Johnson’s seasons and advanced to the Sweet 16 of the 2000 NCAA Tournament. Prior to joining Pearl’s coaching staff at USI, Johnson spent two seasons as an assistant coach of the Idaho Stampede of the Continental Basketball Association. Johnson began his collegiate playing career at Southwestern Oregon Community College where he was named to the All-Freshman Team in his rookie season. He later earned All-Region honors as a sophomore at Salt Lake Community College. He then moved to College of Idaho where he garnered NAIA District II All-Conference honors. A 1993 graduate of College of Idaho with a degree in physical education, he helped lead the Coyotes to an NAIA District II championship and played for the 1991 NAIA National Championship. Johnson and his wife, Amber, have two daughters, Makenzee Ruth and Kenley Jade.

Season Highlights • Leads the team in scoring with 22.0 ppg and has scored a career-high 25 points in back-to-back games. • Has more than doubled his scoring average from last season and is shooting .706 (24-34) from the floor and .778 (14-of-18) from 3-point range. • Drained a career-high six 3-pointers en route to a career-best 25 points against UNC Asheville (Nov. 17). Also set a career-high with five assists vs. the Bulldogs. • Went 6-of-8 from the floor and 4-of-6 from 3-point range while logging a teamhigh 16 points in UT’s exhibition win over Austin Peay (Nov. 13). • Entered the season ranked by Lindy’s as the nation’s 21st-best shooting guard. • Has added more than 15 pounds of muscle since last season. • Worked hard on his jump shot during the off-season, dramatically reducing the arc on his 3-point shot. • The coaches hope for Hopson to become more of a factor in defensive pressure this season, using his length to make steals and impede passing lanes.

Noting Hopson Lives with teammates Emmanuel Negedu, Renaldo Woolridge and Melvin Goins ... Was an SEC All-Freshman Team selection last season and also was a two-time SEC Freshman of the Week honoree ... Was Tennessee’s top 3-point shooter last year, draining 35.7 percent from long range with a team-high 46 makes ... Ranked second on the team last year with 24 dunks ... Led the Vols in scoring three times last season (vs. Florida, at Kentucky and vs. Mississippi State) ... Academic major is Communications.

SO Forward • 6-7 • 218 Kaduna, Nigeria • Brewster [N.H.] Academy

HEART OF A LION: Negedu

Inactive This Season

Sophomore forward Emmanuel Negedu had a sub-pectoral implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) implanted in his chest Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2007, at UT Medical Center. Negedu will not practice or play with the Volunteers during the 2009-10 season. He will, however, remain on full scholarship and will continue to be a valuable part of the UT basketball program. “Emmanuel is such a special young man,” UT head coach Bruce Pearl said. “You don’t come across many like him. He’s faced a tremendously frightening obstacle with unbelievable courage. He is going to be an inspiration to many, and we all feel truly blessed that he’s still here with us.” On Monday, Sept. 28, Negedu suffered a sudden cardiac arrest (ventricular fibrillation) after racing a teammate on the indoor football practice field at Neyland-Thompson Sports Center. The basketball team had recently completed and been dismissed from a group weightlifting session prior to the impromptu race. Tennessee senior associate athletic trainer Chad Newman and director of sports medicine Jason McVeigh were the first medical personnel to arrive at Negedu’s side, and Newman (the basketball team trainer) initiated emergency medical service response. The use of an on-site automatic external defibrillator (AED) and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)— both of which were administered by Newman—were necessary to revive Negedu, who regained a pulse and consciousness before being transported via ambulance to UT Medical Center. Negedu was in stable condition during the duration of his hospitalization. He was discharged from UT Medical Center on Thursday, Oct. 1, wearing an external defibrillator vest. He continued to wear the vest until undergoing the implant procedure. From the time of his admission to UT Medical Center through Wednesday, Sept. 30, Negedu underwent a battery of tests. He traveled with his American host family and Newman to Cleveland, Ohio, on Thursday, Oct. 1, to meet with specialists at the Cleveland Clinic. The group returned to Knoxville Oct. 2, and the implant was scheduled that weekend. The ICD is a permanent device that constantly monitors the heart’s rhythm, and when an irregularity occurs, the ICD delivers energy to the heart muscle which returns the heart to its normal rhythm. “I just want to say thanks to all those people that care about me and show me they care,” Negedu said. “I want to say I appreciate everything. “God is going to see me through this. With God, all things are possible. God is always in control.” Upon his enrollment at UT in the summer of 2008, Negedu underwent an echocardiogram and an electrocardiogram (EKG), both of which are part of routine physical examinations for incoming UT student-athletes. No issues were detected on those tests that precluded Negedu’s participation with the basketball team. A native of Kaduna, Nigeria, Negedu played in 33 games as a true freshman last season. The 6-7 forward shot a team-best 80 percent from the free-throw line while averaging 1.9 points and 1.7 rebounds per game. His best performance came Jan. 28 against LSU, during which he totaled 11 points, two rebounds, one assist and one block in 15 minutes of action.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest • According to the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association, at least 225,972 American lives have been lost this year to sudden cardiac arrest. • SCA is a leading cause of death in the U.S., posting a higher death rate than breast cancer, lung cancer and HIV/ AIDS combined.
