Tennessee basketball coach Cuonzo Martin
Tennessee hosts Victory University in a Monday night men’s basketball exhibition game in Thompson-Boling Arena, and govols247 senior writer Wes Rucker is on hand to provide updates from the action.
Victory will be UT’s only exhibition opponent this season because of second-year coach Cuonzo Martin’s decision to have his Vols play a “silent” scrimmage against Georgia Tech eight days ago in UT-Chattanooga’s McKenzie Arena.
The Vols finished a vast majority of their nucleus from last season’s SEC runner-up squad, but they’ll play tonight and in Friday’s regular-season opener against Kennesaw State without senior All-SEC forward Jeronne Maymon, who’s fighting his way back from a recent “setback” after a pair offseason knee surgeries.
Updates and postgame reaction from Martin and UT players will be posted in this thread. Some updates will be free for all readers, and some will be reserved exclusively for govols247 subscribers.
Tonight's game won't be televised, but live streaming will be available on UTsports.com.
