Tracy Webster, associate head coach of the Tennessee men's basketball team, talks about Jarnell Stokes, who has recently said he's working on his defensive rebounds.

"He's a guy who pays attention. He knows what's going on. We just try to stay in the back of his head ... and he ends up putting it all together," Webster said.

There's been a big change this year's Vols, he says, and Stokes' leadership role has a lot to do with that.

We need him to demand the basketball from the inside because he's the guy that can do some things with it. And not just scoring because Jarnell's a good passer," he said. "And I think when he touches the ball, we're pretty productive. And his teammates know it."

Keep trying to work Jarnell at the high post, coaches! It is easier to feed him there, he has more choice about where to pass it, he can gain confidence in his 15'-18' jumper, he can drive the basket from there, and he can pick his gaps to go to for offensive rebounds. It would not only make him more effective for the Vols, it would help him develop a game he could play in the NBA as well.
