Everything Kim English said about Saturday’s game vs. Alabama

    by -

    Vols assistant coach Kim English met with the media on Friday afternoon to preview Saturday night’s game against Alabama in Tennessee’s second conference game.

    English discussed the Vols’ win over No. 12 Missouri, what makes Alabama so tough to defend from the perimeter, if anything about Tennessee has surprised him since the start of the season, the team’s chemistry and one-on-one games between he and Victor Bailey Jr..

    Here’s everything English had to say:

    Opening statement about playing Alabama:

    “We have a good opponent tomorrow in Alabama, coached by Nate Oats. They’re a really good team with some good wins this season. Obviously, Ole Miss a few days ago. They beat a really good Furman team, Providence, had a hard-fought battle against Western Kentucky. They are a completely different opponent than what we just faced in Missouri. They play the fourth-fastest pace in the country. They shoot about 37 threes a game. They stretch the floor, five out. It is the college version of what the Houston Rockets are. It’s going to be a great challenge for our guys. Seeing how they respond from executing a game plan at Missouri, to a completely different attack against Alabama tomorrow at 6 p.m.”
