REBOUNDING HELP. The Vols tied for 226th nationally at grabbing loose balls last season. That's something graduate transfer E.J. Anosike will help improve. The 6-foot-7, 245-pound forward ranked sixth nationally in rebounding last season averaging 11.6 per game at Sacred Heart. He also has 27 career double-doubles. “It’s something we’ve really made a conscious effort on to know that we have to be better there,” Barnes said. OTHER NEWCOMERS Barnes not only has the pair of five-star recruits, Bailey finally is available after sitting out last season following his transfer from Oregon. The 6-4 guard averaged 7.4 points and shot 39.8% from 3-point range during his last season at Oregon and is looking forward to finally playing in the SEC. Bailey spent the past year working to get stronger, saying he was inspired to work hard after seeing how big the Vols looked to him at the Sweet 16 in March 2019. REVAMPED SCHEDULE. The coronavirus pandemic wiped out games like a planned season opener against Wisconsin, a game with Memphis in Nashville and No. 1 Gonzaga. The Vols currently have their 18-game SEC schedule with seven non-conference games hoping to add a couple more games to reach 27 for the season. They open Nov. 25 hosting Charlotte as part of a three-team, round-robin called “The Volunteer Classic”. The highlight is a visit from No. 6 Kansas on Jan. 30 in the Big 12/SEC Challenge after Tennessee lost 74-68 on the road to the Jayhawks last season. With a 4,000 cap on attendance, the Jayhawks won't have to deal with a packed gym and a loud road atmosphere. “We were hoping a year ago when we left Kansas that we would get to play them again,” Barnes said. “We wish they could get the full experience of Thompson-Boling arena. I think when a team like that comes in, I don’t think there’s any better arena in the country" External link

He is good in ball screens, there’s no doubt about that. But he got tired. He got tired. … He’s going to make some mistakes and we’re going to live with, it because he’s trying to start the season in the middle of the season and his first game was a conference game. There’s no doubt that everybody saw that he’s got a chance to be a terrific player, and he’s a guy who wants to distribute the ball. He’ll learn. He’ll watch tape. If he’s anything like how he was watching tape to learn our offense as he is after a game and learning then he’s going to be a good basketball player. He really is” External link

This is the most he’s played in six weeks. He hasn’t been through a full practice in six weeks. He’s a really hard worker. He’s very conscientious. He wants to do the right thing. He just needs to play his way back in shape. That’s why we’re trying to get as many minutes as we could for those guys on the court tonight. They’re going to be out there a lot together.

Rick Barnes said ( about Rick Barnes ) : “It’s been a long time since we’ve had four or five guys that can play that spot,” "Obviously some are further along than others, but they’re going to get there”. REBOUNDING HELP. The Vols tied for 226th nationally at grabbing loose balls last season. That's something graduate transfer E.J. Anosike will help improve. The 6-foot-7, 245-pound forward ranked sixth nationally in rebounding last season averaging 11.6 per game at Sacred Heart. He also has 27 career double-doubles. “It’s something we’ve really made a conscious effort on to know that we have to be better there,” Barnes said. OTHER NEWCOMERS Barnes not only has the pair of five-star recruits, Bailey finally is available after sitting out last season following his transfer from Oregon. The 6-4 guard averaged 7.4 points and shot 39.8% from 3-point range during his last season at Oregon and is looking forward to finally playing in the SEC. Bailey spent the past year working to get stronger, saying he was inspired to work hard after seeing how big the Vols looked to him at the Sweet 16 in March 2019. REVAMPED SCHEDULE. The coronavirus pandemic wiped out games like a planned season opener against Wisconsin, a game with Memphis in Nashville and No. 1 Gonzaga. The Vols currently have their 18-game SEC schedule with seven non-conference games hoping to add a couple more games to reach 27 for the season. They open Nov. 25 hosting Charlotte as part of a three-team, round-robin called “The Volunteer Classic”. The highlight is a visit from No. 6 Kansas on Jan. 30 in the Big 12/SEC Challenge after Tennessee lost 74-68 on the road to the Jayhawks last season. With a 4,000 cap on attendance, the Jayhawks won't have to deal with a packed gym and a loud road atmosphere. “We were hoping a year ago when we left Kansas that we would get to play them again,” Barnes said. “We wish they could get the full experience of Thompson-Boling arena. I think when a team like that comes in, I don’t think there’s any better arena in the country" External link
