Vols Hoops Struggle... Again...
The Vols hoops team this season has been an up and down roller coaster ride. At times, the team looks like they are turning a corner, but then they get blown out in Florida 67-41. Granted Florida is a great team, but Tennessee should have enough talent to keep the game a little closer than that.
The Vols are now 12-7 overall and 3-3 in the SEC. There is still time left for the Vols to get into the NCAA tournament, but losses like this are devastating for a team trying to get over the hump.
With the talent they Vols have, they should not be this bad. Jarnell Stokes and Jordan McRae are among the top talents in the SEC. This is the year the Vols need to get to the NCAA tournament and prove that they belong. If the Vols fail to make the tourney for the fourth consecutive year, i don't see any way the Vols current staff stays around for another season.
I like head coach Cuonzo Martin, I really do. But, if he cannot get this team to the big dance, change needs to happen. I am rooting for Martin. I want him to be around for a long time, but this is the honest truth and sometimes the truth isn't pretty.
