Our post players struggled to defend bama’s style of floor spreading offense and we eventually put our best post player Fulky on the bench. Post depth maybe a problem at some point but this game wasn’t one of them. The inability to make open shots with the other team shooting well above their norm, losing one of our better scorers to injury, and losing our best rim protector to fouls for half the game were the issues
I think it had an affect on this game. We didn't go small till the second half. Those backup post didn't fare too well either in the first half. I think moving forward Barnes will go small a lot earlier if we see this scheme again.

Alabama basketball playing in Knoxville has a feel completely different than Kentucky or Vanderbilt, but it always just as important a game in the conference schedule, remember very well that February night in 1976 when Alabama rolled in to Stokely with Leon Douglas and a young Reggie King and T.R. Dunn, with C.M. Newton at the helm, unbeknownst to many Sports Illustrated was in the house with writers and photographers and come Monday Ray Mears' Double Trouble From Tennessee graced the cover of what was then the most respected weekly sports magazine on the planet.
Really good stuff, Tartan.

So our best defender / shot blocker barely played half the game due to foul trouble. One of our top scorers goes down to injury in the first 10 minutes. Our best player who’s been shooting around 90% free throws misses 5 of 8. And, Petty the orange slayer makes every shot he takes. Pretty much a perfect storm, especially when CRB gives up 2 points on a tech. Our team doesn’t suddenly suck. It’s college basketball and we all knew we’d loose a few.
Go Vols!
