Tennessee Post Game Notes With Delmus

tennessee post game notes

West Virginia got off to a blazing start and took a 19-7 lead. It was all downhill from there as West Virginia was blown out 83-66 by the No. 1 Vols.

Tennessee Post Game Notes:

  • West Virginia played the hardest they’ve played all season for the first 9 minutes of the game.  Defensive pressure was outstanding. Coach Huggins clearly had the team ready to play.
  • Our offense after getting up 19-7:
  • Almost 10 minutes without a score is unacceptable.  
  • Why does our defense consistently allow wide open 3s in the corner?  Every game? And why does every opponent seemingly shoot 80% from the corner against us?   
  • Tennessee’s Grant Williams is not the best player in the country.  He is no more talented than Esa Ahmad. He is Esa Ahmad with a heart.  
  • James “Brittle” Bolden
  • Overall, proud of the effort.  Postgame with Huggins was again embarrassing.  

Up next the Mountaineers take a trip to Ames to take on the Iowa State Cyclones. This will be their first match-up of the season. Iowa State is coming in hot after taking down No. 20 Mississippi on the road by a final score of 87-73. They also own wins over Kansas and Texas Tech.
