Knoxville, TN – Just three weeks remain until the Tennessee basketball team hosts Pikeville in exhibition action, marking the dawn of the Donnie Tyndall era on Rocky Top. The Volunteers continued preseason preparations Monday, powering through what has become the hardwood norm in Knoxville–a physical, fast-paced, high-intensity practice at Pratt Pavilion.
“We’re making progress. Kids are working hard, and I’ve said that all summer long,” Tyndall said. “Our attitude toward being coached, our receptiveness to being coached, has never been an issue. We certainly have deficiencies in other areas, but guys are competing and giving great effort.”
