Tennessee stats pack

The Viles are coming off wins over top 25 teams (Kansas and Ole Miss) and have reinstated all except Tyler Smith who was kicked off the team. How they beat KU with 6 scholarship players is a mystery to me.

Vols year to date

Stats:
- 48.1% FG
- 34.4% 3pt FG
- 67.3% FT
- +2.8 rebound margin
- 80.8 PPG

Are they more talented? Yes.
Will Chism (who's been there 11 years) give us problems inside? Yes.
Other than that, do we match up well with Tennessee? Yes.

Prediction: I was leaning toward Tennessee, but we're due an upset win. I don't think UT has anyone that can handle Torrance off the dribble and if we can hit some 3s to open up the inside for Green and Knox we can pull the upset. I say this is CAG's signature win for the year... Alabama by 5.

I was also shocked to learn that Chism was still there.

So, the 3 guys are reinstated, which begs the question....

WHY DOESN'T UTK ADMINISTER A DRUG TEST ON THESE PEOPLE????

What am I missing here?
