For the Tennessee Volunteer basketball team it’s a year of high expectations.
Last year, the Volunteers ended their campaign with a regular-season sec title and a 26-9 record for the third-most wins in program history.
The big orange is now listed in the top-10 of every major preseason poll as the team returns all five starters from last season’s squad.
Admiral: “It’s cool and all but we’re still that 13th team that was picked last year. We have a different mindset this year. We’re very eager to get on the floor, very eager to compete, but we’re very eager to get better, especially starting today.”
Lamonte: “I want everyone in the country talking about Tennessee basketball. It’s a good feeling to know that people are excited about our upcoming season, and we’re excited about it so we’re ready to go out there, play and just have another great year.”
