Pearls of Wisdom

It's nice to be #1 in February. Nice, but really meaningless. UT and Memphis should both be top seeds in the NCAA Tournament, barring some major failure down the stretch. What we did learn in UT's road win at previously unbeaten was what we suspected....Memphis is going nowhere if they can't make a foul shot down in the final minutes. UT was not much better from the line for the first 35 minutes, but in the last 5 minutes, the Vols made 4 of 6, while the Tigers were 1 of 6. UT also gained valuable Big Game experience that will pay benefits in March, if not April. They'll lean on this one in crunch time. And they know they can do it without Chris Lofton being Superman.
Next question for UT is, can they regroup against another tough team on the road? We'll find out Tuesday night in Memorial Gym as Vandy awaits...

I have to agree with Big Dawg tonight. Vandy will keep this one close could win outright!!! The Doors are Catching UT at just The Right time.
