    The Tennessee Volunteers’ basketball team at practice on Sept. 29, 2021.

    The Tennessee basketball team made their return to the court on Tuesday to open the 2021 season. Additionally, the team did gather for another practice on Wednesday, which was open to the media.

    Tennessee has a slew of new people in the building, both players and coaches alike. Tennessee has added eight student-athletes to the team since 2020, along with two new assistant coaches.

    Early into fall training camp, the Tennessee basketball team looked to be working on the basics of getting back on the court. The team ran through various workouts on Wednesday, such as rebounding drills, 3-on-3 drills, shooting drills, and several more as well.

    In addition, a full report of observations from the Vols’ practice can be found on Rocky Top Insider. The report includes things like which new players look the most comfortable on the court early on, who is making their shots the most consistently at practice, and much more.

    The highlights and footage of the second Tennessee basketball practice of 2021 can be found below.
