The 2023-2024 Tennessee men’s basketball team is wrapping up the preseason slate this week leading up to the Vols’ season opener on Monday, Nov. 6 against Tennessee Tech in Knoxville.
In addition to some exhibition games that Tennessee played in Italy over the summer, the Vols have had two collegiate-level exhibitions this preseason en route to the regular season.
No. 9 Tennessee defeated No. 4 Michigan State in a thrilling contest by a score of 89-88 in East Lansing. Two days later, the Vols returned home to Knoxville and defeated Lenoir-Rhyne by a score of 90-48. Tennessee won both of those games without guards Zakai Zeigler and Santiago Vescovi due to injury recovery and a family absence, respectively.
Vescovi is back with Tennessee this week as the Vols prepare for the season opener.
Tennessee hit the practice court on Thursday with the media in attendance and permitted to capture footage of the first few minutes of practice.
