Tennessee inbounded the ball with 45 seconds to go in a tie game. I know players rarely go for the 2 for 1 anymore, but that was the obvious time to do it.

Either way Tennessee hits the 3 with 20 seconds to go. 76-73
 
Tennessee wins.

Down to 9 unbeaten,

Michigan should be #1 next week.(but I assume they will give it to Kansas)
 
What a fantastic game! My sis in law lives in Knoxville. I called her and did a little screaming with her. I am happy for Tennessee. They have never really been good in basketball, and I believe this will be a great year for them.

Ernie Grunfeld and Bernard King say, “Hi!”

That was over 40 years ago. If that is the last time you were successful, I think its OK to say you have not been really good at basketball.

But she said “never”. IIRC, there’s also Alan Huston (sp). They’ve been to the NCAAs 9 times in the 2000s. They just don’t get extremely far into the tournament and don’t have a lot of standout pros.

Yeah Ralph Sampson. :)

And Rick Barnes hasn't been to the Final Four since Cuse beat them in 03. Just a little bit better than Virginia.
 
They had some decent teams with Vincent Yarborough around the turn of the century and again when Bruce Pearl was (I assume) cheating his a$$ off but yeah Tenn has t don’t much overall.
 
You’ve made Malcolm Brogdon and Joe Harris feel sad you’ve forgotten them. ;)
And this guy. ;)
Virginia bench shrug oh well smaller.jpg

Honestly I would always remember Sampson and Virginia before either of them. I had already forgot Joe Harris.

In 2010 they lost a nail bitter to Michigan St in the elite eight.

You are correct... they have not been without some success. I guess it would be more apt to say that are a team that is around top 10 every now and then but not that often. So their fans should relish it when it when it happens.

Thank you! And a “Hmp!” To Hoo! ;)

And I believe that is as far as they have ever been. Knoxville was going crazy.
 
Awesome. Not the result, just that peeps still love college hoops.
Where's Marsh?
