Vols play unselfish basketball against Louisiana

KNOXVILLE – No. 6 Tennessee improved to 2-0 on the season after defeating Louisiana, 87-65.

Through two games, Tennessee’s starting five of Kyle Alexander, Jordan Bone, Jordan Bowden, Admiral Schofield and Grant Williams are averaging a combined 73.5 points per game.

Part of the scoring success is sharing the ball and getting everyone involved.

The Vols played unselfishly against Louisiana, moving the ball around and finishing with 27 assists.

“That’s something that we like to think that we’ll do, that we’ll share the ball,” Rick Barnes said following the win over Louisiana. “We ran one or two ball screens out of random motion. We’re not a heavy ball screen team, so our whole deal is based on passing, cutting, screening and movement – and to see us make those plays is what we want to see. We do really want to share the ball.”
