As frustrated as I was watching this coyote-ugly basketball game, I think the Vols can take some positives away from this. They weren't intimidated. They competed strong on the glass at both ends. Their defense was outstanding for a full 40 minutes. Overall, this is a good basketball team in the making. The Hoyas scored 37 points on their home court. This is the same team that nearly took out Indiana on a neutral floor. UT took this team out of their rhythm and nearly got a W in DC.
All in all, I think this team has very good potential. Tonight proves they can play defense with anybody. But they still have to step it up consistently on offense to beat the best. And make some free throws!
