KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee's Jordan Bowden and Lamonte' Turner responded to the gentle scolding they received from their coach last week
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee coach Rick Barnes doesn't like referring to Lamonte' Turner and Jordan Bowden as reserves.
As far as he's concerned, those two guards are starters who happen to come off the bench.
Turner and Bowden combined to score 40 points, and the third-ranked Volunteers whipped Arkansas 106-87 on Tuesday night for their 11th consecutive victory.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee is creating quite a home-court advantage at an arena it had trouble filling in the past.

Tennessee (12-1, 1-0 SEC) hasn't lost a home game in a full calendar year. The Vols' last home defeat was a 94-84 setback against Auburn on Jan. 2, 2018.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Admiral Schofield popped his Tennessee jersey to the Memphis fans who had been screaming at him throughout the game.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — No. 6 Tennessee prepared for its showdown with Gonzaga by posting its second straight lopsided victory at home.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee's Yves Pons felt no jitters as he showcased his athleticism in his first career start.
With the sixth-ranked Volunteers attempting to bounce back from their first loss of the season, coach Rick Barnes sought an energy boost by having Pons replace Jordan Bowden in the lineup.

DALLAS (AP) — Rick Barnes is now winning NCAA Tournament games with "Rocky Top" in Texas.
With the Tennessee coach back in familiar territory, Admiral Schofield had 15 points and 12 rebounds as the Volunteers opened their first NCAA under Barnes with a 73-47 win over Wright State on Thursday.
"The biggest thing is we came out and did what we said we were going to do, try to run them out of their offense, and against a great team," Schofield said.
OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — The Tennessee Vols got off to a fast start and held on late for a key road victory.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee showed it can win even when Grant Williams and Admiral Schofield aren't scoring in bunches.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — The fouls piled up early for No. 21 Tennessee — one coming a single second into the game — to send some of the Volunteers' top players to the bench. And Wake Forest controlled the boards to build some confidence and rhythm.
The halftime message to the Volunteers was simple: play tougher.
Jordan Bowden scored 17 points and Tennessee shot 59 percent in the second half to beat Wake Forest 79-60 on Saturday in their final pre-conference game.
