jujuan saved the day.

to their credit, LSU put up a heckuva game against us.

we need to work on our inside game.
those easy inside shots and offensive rebound/putbacks that we're missing of late, will haunt us next month.

LSU has some long armed players. They were pumped about their coach also. Any team would have to play well to win that game!!

Doing what it takes, what a win. Bruce Pearl is the best thing that ever happened to UT Basketball, now if only we could get a football coach to match his intensity and excellent motivation and coaching abliities. Go UT to FINAL FOUR.

We are weak underneath in the paint, but our great forward and guard play hides this to a degree. Against a Georgetown for example, we might get worn out....Having said that, Coach Pearl is probably the best coach in the country, an asset to the UT, the SEC, and college basketball in general. We are blessed to have him...!

Charter Vol predicted JuJuan would win the game in the final seconds. Wow! How does he do that?

Against teams like that is when it is good to be 3 point shooting team where you make those big guys come out of the paint. But if you live by the 3, you die by the 3! The loss aginst Texas(in my opinion) was due to fatigue. We played 2 games in 2 days, where texas had a day off to watch us play! then the game at Kentucky is just a rivalry game that can go either way no matter the rankings. If you remember, back in the day when we never ranked and Kentucky was a top 5 team, the games were usually close then also! I think the Vols are the most under-rated. We will see feb 23rd. J.P. Prince's homecoming, and Lofton has the Tigers number! Oh yeah, JaJuan desrves to be considered for All American first team since he leads a team in points per game who is in the top 5 teams in ppg. Does anyone agree that without JaJuan, we would struggle?
