The Keydets have only one player over 6-foot-7 and try to make up for it by turning things into a track meet. It's worked well at times. VMI famously won a...

No Tennessee is not a particularly good team. They aren’t some low, mid-major either. Nor are they USF bad (have to adjust since DePaul looks kind of frisky this year). What they are is a major conference team, playing at home while struggling with a coaching change and departed talent. Pitt has higher aspirations, but played that game without their starting point guard for the...
