The No. 13 Tennessee Volunteers will try to get back into the win column on Saturday when welcoming the UNC Greensboro Spartans to Knoxville.
Tennessee (6-2) came out on the losing end of its Jimmy V Classic matchup with Texas Tech on Tuesday, falling 57-52 in overtime at Madison Square Garden. This was a tight, low-scoring affair throughout the entirety of the ballgame and the Vols simply didn’t have the gas to keep pace in the extra period. John Fulkerson was the only UT player to hit double-digits in points on the evening, putting up 10 along with 10 rebounds and five blocks.
UNC Greensboro (7-2) have been solid in non-conference play through the first month of the season and are looking for its fourth consecutive victory. The Spartans were last seen dumping in-state foe Elon for a 74-61 victory, a game where De’Monte Buckingham led with 21 points and seven rebounds.
