I've been reading other fanbase forums before we play them in basketball. Barnes seems to be almost universally liked by rival fans and most even admit that they like this team in general. Kind of odd to be No. 1 in the nation and not only not be hated, but also liked.
He’s the Antichrist in Memphis, because of Anfernee’s childish propaganda.

Don’t see them covering the 17 points, but it should be another double digit win .
If Missouri can keep from turning it over, then I agree. We don’t force too many, and it will help Mizzou play the slow plodding pace that they prefer. Could be enough to keep it closer than 17.

I want our guys 100% totally focused and playing their very best and have Mizzou blown out by 1/2 way through the 2nd half!

Get our starters some extra rest and, most importantly, get all of our other players some meaningful minutes and more real game knowledge and experience.

We may need those other guys before this season is over and have them more prepared for next season too.

Let's go Vols...STOMP Mizzou!!!

VFL...GBO!!!

Don’t read the Kentucky boards then... according to them grant gets all the calls, our team is full of thugs and we shouldn’t be able to enjoy this great year because we don’t have their tradition. Rupp rafters seems to consist of some of the worst people I’ve ever witnessed. Totally despicable people.

STORYLINES

Cuonzo Martin coached the Vols for three seasons from 2011-14.

VFL and former All-SEC Tennessee forward Jeronne Maymon (2010-14) is now a graduate assistant on the Mizzou basketball staff.

Tennessee's average home attendance of 18,406 ranks fourth nationally.

This is Rick Barnes' longest win streak since he led Texas to a 17-0 start to open the 2009-10 season.

At tipoff Tuesday, 73 full days will have elapsed since Tennessee's last loss.

This is Tennessee's best start to SEC play since it won its first eight league games in 1981-82.

The Vols have shot 50 percent or better 15 times this season and rank second in the country with a .516 field-goal percentage.

Point guard Jordan Bone owns the sixth-best assist/turnover ratio in the country (3.56).
Yankee Vol, Thanks for all the information in the game threads. I can come here and get in 5 minutes all the information I need leading into the game. Nice work.
