Tennessee at Kentucky 7:00 p.m. ET on ESPNU

Tennessee at Kentucky
7:00 p.m. ET Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2012
Rupp Arena, Lexington, Ky.

TV: The game will be televised nationally on ESPNU. Dave O’Brien handles the play-by-play, while Fran
Fraschilla provides analysis.

Internet: firstrowsports.com, justintv on JeepJeep channel (password: orange)

GAME NOTES:

• The Vols are seeking their first true road win of the season.
• Tennessee owns a 4-11 record against the top-ranked team in the AP poll, and the Vols have won
each of their last two meetings against the nation’s No. 1 team (at Memphis in 2008, Kansas in 2010).
• UT is 4-2 in its last six games against the AP’s top-ranked team.
• This is the 10th time that Tennessee will face a Kentucky squad that occupies the top spot in the
national AP poll. The Vols’ lone win in the nine previous games was a 69-62 triumph on March 5, 1966.
• This is the first season since the 1933-34 campaign that Tennessee will play both of its games
against Kentucky during the month of January.
• Cuonzo Martin and Darius Miller were a part of the USA Basketball squad that competed at the
World University Games in Shenzen, China, last summer. See “Familiar Faces” note on Page 7.
• Freshman power forward Jarnell Stokes was last week’s SEC Freshman of the Week after averaging
13.5 points and 10.0 rebounds in games against Georgia and defending national champion UConn.
• Just five games into his college career, Stokes already averages close to a double-double with 10.6
points and a team-high 8.0 rebounds per game. He has started each of the last three games.
• Tennessee’s home victory over Auburn Saturday was UT’s 1,500th all-time win.
• The Vols have held three elite teams to their lowest scoring output of the season. Tennessee held
Florida to 56 points, Kentucky to 65 points and UConn to 57 points. In their last six games, the Vols are
holding their opponents to an average of 58.7 points (four of those opponents were ranked).
• Cuonzo Martin, in just his fourth season as a college head coach, has defeated two coaches this
month who combine to boast five national championships. Connecticut’s Jim Calhoun has three
NCAA titles, and Florida’s Billy Donovan has won two.
• Tennessee currently ranks fifth nationally in average home attendance (17,211). The Vols are
riding a streak of five consecutive seasons with a national top-five finish in attendance.

I aint looking forward to this one. I hate morale victories but I'd be school girl happy if we kept it around 10 points. Rupp is for sure not in my Top 10 places to go to root a young team to it's first road victory of the season.
