It’s a college football Saturday…. with a side of basketball. Tennessee will take on Lenoir-Rhyne in an exhibition this afternoon in Knoxville, kicking off basketball season on Rocky Top.
The No. 18 Volunteers will get a chance to gel a little bit today before starting the season for real on November 9th against UT-Martin.
Today will mark the debut of five-star freshmen Kennedy Chandler and Brandon Huntley-Hatfield. Auburn sharpshooter Justin Powell is another massive addition. Rick Barnes has turned this roster over from last year’s team, hoping to make things a little more balanced this season.
John Fulkerson will miss today’s game with an injury, but is expected back to begin the regular season. Freshman center Jonas Aidoo has been battling an illness, so we’ll see if he’s able to go.
We’ll have a recap posted shortly after the game, but use this thread to discuss during.
