KNOXVILLE – Tennessee defeated Tusculum, 87-48, in the Vols’ lone exhibition game of the 2018-19 season.
Tennessee led 42-14 at halftime and played 15 players during the contest.
Rick Barnes discussed the exhibition victory over Tusculum.
“I didn’t think the second half was
any good at all from our perspective,” Barnes said. “In the first half, I thought defensively we were getting stops and consecutive stops and allowing us to get out and push the ball. They were changing defenses and we have spent a ton of time working against zone because we were confident that we could handle it, and we did.”
