Stokes a 5* with 4 points. There are so many people that the Vols could find to play the 4 and score 4 points!
And if "our senior leader" Trea Golden would like to join the team sometime this year that would be awesome!
Feels like fouls were called on us every time KY touched the ball, which didn't help either. I like watching our second string much better. Have we regressed????? Terrible.
Stokes needs help, when u have only one big man that can score its hard to win.

Trae Golden is a junior, just saying.
Stokes is just not an elite player. If you judge him as a 5 star he will disappoint you, because he is simply an undersized big with no range.
Seems to me the rankings done in all the services are done by unqualified judges. What qualifies these people?
I never saw him play in HS, but it is really easy to miss on bigs. He was probably dominant against HS competition, his lack of elite vertical athleticism was overshadowed by his physicality, and the hope is he develops an offensive game.

Stokes failing to make an impact this season is very disappointing. Being the Vols 'garbage man' may actually be something to aspire to. Tonight against KY he was just 'garbage'.
As basketball programs go, are there many that have gotten less from their big name recruits? Over the years, we have very little to show from the careers of Hathaway, Tony Harris, Yarbrough, Hopson, Tobias Harris and now Stokes. Not all these guys were bad players, but they sure didn't accomplish much. Maybe it goes to show the necessity of having a strong supporting cast.
