    Saturday’s game in Knoxville wasn’t just any ordinary SEC basketball game. After losing to LSU in Baton Rouge earlier in the season and having to suffer through atrociously pathetic fan treatment while on their campus, Tennessee found its revenge on Saturday afternoon in Knoxville. The 24th-ranked Vols took down the 13th-ranked Tigers by a score of 64 to 50 in one of Tennessee’s best games of the season.

    Whether it was due to something that happened previously or just happened in the flow of the game, the contest between Tennessee and LSU was certainly chippy on the court. Time and time again, players would use extra aggression while tensions were running high. One of the Tennessee players that made sure to not back down from his opponent was Vols’ center Uros Plavsic.

    Plavsic was not afraid to mix it up with the LSU players on Saturday afternoon during the game. And, after the game, Plavsic wasn’t afraid to have a little fun on Twitter at LSU’s expense.

    That’s right, that is Tennessee center Uros Plavsic posting a “Tiger King” Snapchat-filter photograph after the Vols beat the Tigers in Knoxville.

    Fans would certainly get a kick out of seeing 7-foot tall Uros Plavsic in a blonde mullet on the court, but something tells us the referees may have an issue with the four earrings during a game.

    In addition, Tennessee Basketball’s social media account, which is one of the best in the business, also took a shot at the Tigers after the game.

    In a now-infamous story, current LSU basketball coach Will Wade was caught giving away illegal offers and benefits to recruits while trying to get them to play for LSU.

    So for Tennessee on Saturday night, it was less about accepting the offer, and more about accepting the challenge.

    And lastly, for the kids out there, the Tennessee Basketball account even had a little fun with one of the hottest memes circulating the internet.
