Too many memories of the place to mention. Billy Hahn, Bill Justus , Ernie and Bernie, Howard Bayne, Larry McIntosh , Ron Widby, Red Robbins, Tom Boerwinkle, Orby Lee Bowling, Danny Schultz, Tom ( last name escapes me) known as " spook" because he resembled early Tenn star player Carl "spook" Widseth , the team running through the "T",the pregame warmup circle,a basketball player turned unicycle rider , asst coach Stu Aberdeen, asst coach Cliff Wettig, and so many more. We had great seats before it was doubled in size and the floor turned to accommodate the changes. Coach Mears was a man to watch any night. He was the most demonstrative coach I have ever known. Against Buffalo, one night in the "Vol Classic" tournament Tennessee had a 21 point lead and was holding the ball for the last shot before half time ( this was before the shot clock came in to being)... Tennessee turned the ball over ...Coach Mears went ballistic ...he jumped up off of the bench and flailed his arms in anger ....papers , pens and cards flew out of his coat and shirt pockets and covered the floor. Coach Mears did not stop to pick them up but stomped off toward the locker room. He was a very passionate man .
