While it may have taken the Vols a few minutes to get the engine started, Tennessee played a dominant game on Tuesday night, leading to a commanding win against Presbyterian. The Vols defeated the Blue Hose by a score of 86-44.
The big story of the game for Tennessee was the improved shooting from behind the three-point line. Last week against Tennessee Tech, the Vols struggled significantly to get their shot going from deep. However, on Tuesday night in Knoxville, that didn’t seem to be an issue.
Tennessee finished the game shooting 14-of-27 from three-point land. Justin Powell was tremendous in that department on Tuesday, closing the game 5-of-5 from deep
After the game, a few Tennessee players met with the media to discuss their thoughts on the game. Tennessee guard Kennedy Chandler and guard Justin Powell took a few minutes to discuss their thoughts on the game, the preparation that went into it, and a look to Colorado this upcoming Saturday.
After a few gimme games in Knoxville, Tennessee will head out on the road for their next two. The Vols will take on Colorado in a true road game this upcoming Saturday, followed by a matchup with Texas Tech in New York City’s Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, Dec. 7 in the Jimmy V Classic.
