Live updates: Vols-UNCA hoops

Tennessee basketball coach Cuonzo Martin

The Tennessee basketball team plays UNC Asheville in a Thursday afternoon, Puerto Rico Tip-Off game, and govols247 will provide updates from the action in this thread.

Second-year coach Cuonzo Martin’s Vols (1-0) will tip off against coach Eddie Biedenbach’s Bulldogs (1-1) at approximately 1:20 p.m. EST, and the game will be broadcast by ESPNU.

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.
