Last Saturday, the Vols had a sell-out crowd to see third ranked UT host a 4-8 Tennessee Tech team. Head coach Rick Barnes can’t stop raving about the support his team is getting from Big Orange Nation.
Said Barnes:”In terms of basketball, it’s amazing to me. Without question the best fan base I’ve ever been around. You talk about what. what was it 21,000 for Tennessee Tech. Almost 20,000 for Wake Forest. All around the holidays.”
