NOTABLE

Noting the Win Streak
Tennessee's 15-game winning streak is the second longest current streak in Division I this season, trailing only Texas A&M (16). It is also tied for the third-longest win streak in program history, matching 15-game streaks in 1951, 1997, 2004 and 2019. A win on Tuesday would tie the 1994 team's 16-game win streak for the second longest in UT history.

10 Vols Set to Participate in MLB Spring Breakout Games
Ten former Vols, who are highly touted MLB prospects, were named to their respective club's 2024 Spring Breakout rosters last week. New to the 2024 Spring Training slate, MLB Spring Breakout is a four-day event showcasing baseball's future: the current stars of Minor League Baseball. The inaugural edition will be held from March 14-17 at Grapefruit and Cactus League stadiums during Spring Training. A series of 16 exhibition games will be played between teams comprised of each MLB organization's top prospects.

KT's Streaks
Redshirt sophomore Kavares Tears is having a breakout season so far and enters this week on a career-long 15-game hitting streak. He has reached base in all 16 games he's played in this season, as well.

Tears is leading the team in batting average (.404) and runs scored (24) to go along with four home runs and 14 RBIs. His 24 runs scored are tied for fourth in the SEC and 18th in the country while his .404 batting average is eighth best in the conference. The Lewisburg, Tennessee, native, drove in the game-winning run with a two-out double in the seventh inning of Sunday's 8-3 win vs. Illinois.

Robin Villeneuve claque son troisième coup de circuit de la saison… un grand chelem!​

Les nôtres dans les universités et collèges américains

Mirabel, Québec, le 10 mars 2024 - Lorsque le baseballeur québécois Robin Villeneuve s'est amené dans le rectangle du frappeur cet après-midi en septième manche, son équipe de l'Université du Tennessee ne menait que par un tout petit point, 4 à 3, sur leurs rivaux de l'Université de l'Illinois.

Trois des coéquipiers de l'athlète gatinois prenaient place sur les sentiers, mais il y avait déjà deux retraits dans la manche.

Avec un compte de 2 balles et 2 prises, le champion des coups de circuit la saison dernière en première division de la NJCAA s'est élancé… et bang, la balle s'est retrouvée de l'autre côté de la clôture du champ gauche. Circuit, grand chelem, quatre points produits, les siens mènent maintenant 8-3.

Pour le jeune homme de 20 ans, il s'agissait de son troisième coup de circuit de la saison en première division de la NCAA et ses points produits étaient ses 12e, 13e, 14e et 15e de la campagne.

Au final, la troupe du Tennessee a remporté la victoire à la marque de 8-3 alors que Villeneuve a terminé la rencontre fort d'un dossier de 1-en-3 avec un circuit, un but sur balles, un point compté et quatre points produits.
