It’s been a roller coaster ride of a season for Cuonzo Martin and the Tennessee Volunteers.
In the middle of...
INDIANAPOLIS — With the third-most efficient offense in the country, the first question for any team preparing to face Michigan is how it can stop the Wolverines on the offensive end. It is the question Tennessee, Michigan’s Sweet Sixteen opponent, has been asking all week leading up to the game between the Wolverines and the Volunteers at Lucas Oil Stadium on Friday.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. â Following the Tennessee Volunteers' second loss of the season to lowly Texas A&M on Feb. 22, which dropped them to 7-7 in Southeastern Conference play, coach Cuonzo Martin's team sure appeared in need of a quick fix if it was going to make the NCAA Tournament.
Whatever the antidote for their inconsistent and sometimes lethargic play, the Vols are...
While watching game film of Sweet 16 opponent Tennessee on Monday, Michigan coach John Beilein plucked out a 4-year old boxscore.
It was dated March 18, 2011 -- the last meeting between the Vols and the Wolverines.
Listed among the Tennessee's reserves were Jeronne Maymon and Jordan McRae. McRae played the final two minutes of the game. Maymon played the final minute.
Michigan will face Tennessee on Friday (7:15 p.m. CBS) in the Sweet 16, pitting the Wolverines against yet another team with an imposing frontline. The Vols are a classic example of a team that played their way into the NCAA tournament and is now playing its best basketball.

ATLANTA -- They don't draw it up like this. They swear.
It just sort of happens occasionally. Happened again on Saturday against Tennessee. Happened in Friday's win over Missouri, too.
When asked why it happens, Florida guard Michael Frazier II tossed up his hands.
"I wish I knew because I could tell my team not to do it," he said. "It's just a bad habit...

I wonder if Cuonzo Martin is starting to feel the influence of the Dooley Effect.
Remember, Derek Dooley was Tennessee’s football coach for only three seasons before it was determined that mediocrity was unacceptable and he was fired. For those keeping score, Martin is in his third season as Vols basketball coach, and his team simply is not playing up to expectations.
Tennessee's Jarnell Stokes and Jeronne Maymon were double- and triple-teamed just about every time they touched the ball.
No. 6 Florida was trying to force anyone else to take shots - a defensive scheme that worked to perfection in a 67-41 victory Saturday.
Stokes finished with 16 points and 10 rebounds - his 10th double-double of the season - but little else went right for...
