Rick Barnes discusses UT entering SEC play

KNOXVILLE — All of the lights will be on No. 3 Tennessee (11-1) entering SEC play after a 12-game non-conference schedule to begin the 2018-19 season.

Following Tennessee’s 96-53 win over Tennessee Tech, the final game before taking on Georgia Jan. 5, Rick Barnes discussed his team and how they have performed to this point in the season.

“If you go back, we’re one possession from being undefeated,” Barnes said. “But the fact is, from here on out, one possession is going to decide a lot of basketball games. We’ve got to understand that. Now you get into conference play. You could’ve ask me when the season started what we were going to be in non-league play. I don’t know what I would’ve said, other than the fact that I think if we play up to our ability, we could win every game.

“I will tell you about our non-league schedule. I think it’s really been good that we’ve played against so many different styles, and we’ve had different people come at us different ways, which has been good too.”
