Managing editor Nathanael Rutherford and staff writer Ben McKee hosted a special reaction podcast to discuss the No. 7 Vols’ upset victory over No. 1 Gonzaga in men’s basketball on Sunday.
Tennessee went over to Phoenix to take on the No. 1 team in the country, and they came away with their first win over the top-ranked team in college basketball since 2010. The Vols toppled Gonzaga 76-73 and helped head coach Rick Barnes earn his first victory over a No. 1 ranked team in his coaching career. Admiral Schofield totaled a career-high 30 points and hit the game-winning shot with 22 seconds remaining to lead the Vols past the Bulldogs.
How big of a win was this for UT’s basketball program? Where will the Vols end up in the AP Poll on Monday? Is Grant Williams in the conversation for National Player of the Year? They discuss that and more in this special podcast!
