Defense too much for Vols... Bama bashes Barnes 71-63

Easily our best defensive effort of the season... and a road win at a top 10 (#8) team. Very proud of the effort.

Box score

Let's start off with the bad... our FT shooting kept us from being a blowout. 9-17 from the charity stripe is rec league bad.

Got that out of the way... now all the goodness:

- We drove the ball AT WILL vs the Viles. Consistently beating the man off the dribble and getting good inside looks which...
- Opened up the 3 ball in the 2nd half. We hit 5 in a row and after that the game was never really in question. UTK might have gotten within 6 once after we expanded the lead to 12. 2/9 1st half, 8/11 2nd.
- Quinerly might have missed a bunch of shots (5-14), but his dribble drive allowed for us to get rebounds which turned into points.
- Tonight we got GOOD Petty. Only missed one shot, played good D, and led the way with 17 pts. Him and Primo accounted for 7 of the 10 made 3s.

Great effort, great win... let's hope the last 2 games is what this team is over what we saw in the WKU and Furman games.
