Live updates: Vols-Owls hoops

Tennessee basketball coach Cuonzo Martin

The Tennessee basketball team hosts Kennesaw State in a Friday night season opener in Thompson-Boling Arena, and govols247 senior writer Wes Rucker is on hand to provide updates from the action.

Second-year coach Cuonzo Martin’s Vols will tip off against coach Lewis Preston’s Owls at 7 p.m. EST, and the game will be broadcast by Fox Sports South.

The Vols returned a vast majority of their nucleus from last season’s SEC runner-up squad, but they’ll play tonight and at least the next few weeks 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.
