Good teams win on the road. Tennessee wants to become a good team. So the Vols have to start winning games on the road.

At least they know the free throw shooting is a problem...
Must have good defense and capitalize on free throws. Hopefully McBee, McRae and Stokes will have a good day on the offensive end Go Big Orange
Ill say what CM couldnt or wouldnt say..so many of these road games, especially our games that come down to the wire, are decided by the stripes.. As long as we get a fair deal from the refs, and they dont whistle Stokes for breathing too hard, this is a game we should be able to stay in. Not sure we can weather another poor performance by McRae though..he needs to bounce back from that effort against Vandy.
Stealing a win at Walton would be huge..It's not a place where we play very well..The Hogs defense is one that usually gives us trouble..Hogs play a fast in your face man to man which leads to turnovers..Lots of reach ins;hand slapping and hand checks..For sure if we come out shooting cold and have a 8 minute scoring drought they will run us out of the gym
I havent seen Arkansas play a lot this year. I dont mind the man to man, it's the zone that scares me with our lack of shooters. Are they pressing a lot of teams this year? cause that's the other weak spot, especially now that we are down a ball handler in Golden. Looks like they have some decent inside presence with Mickelson and Powell, could give Stokes some problems.
Wes are you planning on covering the game live from Fayetteville ? I was planning on making the hour drive , how is the road crowd in SEC basketball ?
This team is frustrating. I want to see them take care of business and play like a team that knows how to win, knows how to finish a game. It's kind of the same thing with many of the individual players. Plenty of talent, but I don't get the feeling yet that anyone really KNOWS what he's doing. This team is close in so many ways to putting the pieces together.
