Tennessee assistant predicts desperate slugfest on Saturday

Tennessee may be ranked No. 11 right now, but it’s hardly smooth sailing in Knoxville. On Tuesday night, the Volunteers lost at Ole Miss just days after beating Kansas by 19, prompting sophomore guard Josiah-Jordan James to question the team’s maturity and national writers to throw in the towel on the Vols being a national title contender.

This morning, assistant coach Desmond Oliver met with the media to break down the loss and look ahead to Saturday night’s game vs. Kentucky. A lot of what he said about the Vols could apply to the Cats right now too.
