First off, I guess I'm actually glad the LSU - Bama game went the 3 OT's because that's when the Vols weren't doing so well. BTW, the curse of the 2nd game of a double header on the same network did it's thing again. They didn't join our game in progress until 3:44 left in the first half.
That was as gutsy a game as you'll see. U T has had the hot hand in the SEC for a while now, and are riding a wave of confidence. We may not see quite the same performance against the lizards as we did with the one and dones, but it might be very similar.
Hard to fuss at Stokes for not icing the game with free throws but he did other things well.McRae? Making a dagger of a 3 pointer to afford us one of those OT's.......yet making some costly turnovers. When they put the ball on the floor in the paint, that's a recipe for disaster, usually. Hats off to the refs for reversing some calls on out of bounds plays.........but some of those charges were curious calls.
All in all, an awesome and gritty performance. You have to wonder how far Stokes, McRae, and Golden can carry us. McBee is stepping up in the clutch, so count him as the 4th guy. We need scoring off the bench and steady play handling and passing the ball. A + effort guys !
