Tennessee Volunteers - UT VolsKnoxville, 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.”

Austin Peay State University GovernorsMorehead, KY – When you lose an iconic athletic figure in the Ohio Valley Conference it takes time to adjust.

Austin Peay experienced that when it lost Bubba Wells after the 1996-97 season and then Trenton Hassell after the 1999-2000 season.

Morehead State is now experiencing life without Kenneth Faried, who is now playing for the NBA’s Denver Nuggets. After a slow start, Morehead State is beginning to adjust to life without the star center who ruled the boards during his four-season career.

Ohio Valley ConferenceDenver, CO – On the verge of seeing his unheralded, 13th-seeded Morehead State program turn into something much more impressive, the coach could have called a play for his NBA-bound center or his guard who couldn’t miss.

Instead, he decided to go with a dream.

Executing a play that came to his coach the night before, Morehead State’s Demonte Harper dribbled patiently and watched the clock tick down. Then, he stepped up behind the 3-point line and swished the shot with 4.2 seconds left Thursday for a 62-61 victory over No. 4 Louisville and the first big upset of the NCAA tournament.
