Regular starting 5 for Vols tonight.
In other words, everyone arrived on time to the Tommy Bowl today.
The Tommy Bowl isn't back to peak form, but it's getting closer. Won't be easy for Texas A&M in here tonight.
how is the crowd?
"Count it down with me. Five, four, three, two, one.
The national champion is clad in Big Orange!"
Texas A&M talks a lot (communication, not trash talking) on defense.
It doesn't have many good players but is clearly a well-drilled team.
Charge called on McRae, who thought defender was inside the circle. He pointed to the kid on the floor and yelled, "LOOK WHERE HE AT!!!"
Good to see mcRae getting that all-SEC whistle....
Vols 11, TexasA&M 7, 15:16/1stH.
Media timeout on the floor.
Vols have done pretty well on offense aside from two turnovers.
A&M scouted Vols well and is calling out every play. But that's what happens in conference play on both sides. Gotta adjust, make plays.
Vols can't make lazy passes with caruso on the floor.
Oh, and Reese first off the bench. Who would have thought that back in November.
Martin has to start trying to protect his players. He has got to get on the refs on a play like that.
How the hell was that a foul

Games like this — when McRae gets two early fouls — make Richardson's offensive improvement that much bigger.
Vols 19, TexasA&M 13, 11:18/1stH.
Vols looking fine despite Jordan McRae foul trouble.
I'd like to see Stokes get more touches underneath......yep, I actually just said that. Feed Stokes!!!
Fourteen of Vols' 15 January football enrollees just introduced during hoops timeout.
Man, it's LOUD in here.
And those kids look the part.
Jakob Johnson and Von Pearson ace the eyeball test, for sure.
Super cool that Butch had the EE's introduced during the timeout! Awesome!
Awesome love shown for the newest Gridiron Vols!!!
"Old School"! A strong defense wins championships!
