The BasketVol Senior class.
Recruited by Buzz Peterson, and finishing their careers at Thompson-Boling Arena (the “Tommy Bowl”), under Bruce Pearl, having held a top 10 ranking all year and at one point a #1 ranking.
Congrats to Chris Lofton, JaJuan Smith and Jordan Howell for finishing out their Thompson-Boling Arena with a win, and having great careers for the University of Tennessee. You’ll always be Vols, and Tennessee will always be… Home Sweet Home… you guys know how it goes.
Turning to the game, it’s always a good sign when Steven Pearl gets significant minutes, as does Tanner Wild, Ryan Childress, and you know, other players I’ve never even heard of before. I think the bench gave Tanner Wild more crap for making the running layup for a three point play than when he missed an wide open layup earlier in the season.
Up next is the SEC Tournament in Atlanta, where the SEC Postseason championship is up for grabs. Good luck to the BasketVols. It seems only a matter of time before #5 will be hanging in the rafters next to Ernie and Bernie.
