The Dawgs are shooting well, hitting 47.8 percent of their shots from the floor and seven of their eight free throws, but are losing the battle on the boards and have turned the ball over seven times already, with three of those coming on steals by Tennessee.
Gerald Robinson has been outstanding so far, hitting all of his shots and leading all scorers with 12 points. He also leads the way with three of those seven turnovers, so you take what you can get. Scotty Hopson and Tobias Harris lead the Vols with 11 each.
No players are in major foul trouble, with only Travis Leslie and Jeremy Price acquiring multiple fouls in the first half. Curiously, the Vols have only gotten to the line twice.
