Tennessee Vols preview- round 1

Bad vs bad in Tuscaloosa tomorrow at 1PM EST. UTK seemed to have righted the ship then came back to back home losses to Memphis and Ole Miss. Ole Miss might be good, but they were blown out which makes me feel a bit better about buying tickets for the return game in Knoxville in 2 weeks.

UTK is 8-5... a name win over Xavier (losers of 5 of their last 6) and boring losses to Georgetown and Virginia (scored 36 and 38). Sadly, this is SEC basketball as only Missouri and Florida seem to be good (UK is getting better).

Anyways, here's their season stats.

Jordan McRae, Jarnell Stokes and Trae Golden lead the team in scoring (12.7, 11.6, 11.4). They won't scare anyone offensively which is good for us as we don't scare anyone either. Stokes is 54% from the field while McRae is the only regular shooting over 30% from beyond the arc.

More numbers:
- 42% FG
- 28.8% 3pt FG (319th in the country)
- 67.1% FT
- 65.2 PPG
- +4.0 Rebound margin

Game is on ESPN2 1/12/13. Could be good for a midday nap.
