This Tennessee team had done it before. The most recent match up between the two teams resulted in a down-to-the-wire victory for Rick Barnes.
Grant Williams struggled throughout the night against the much larger, more experienced big men for the Wildcats. The freshman, averaging (PPG), provided only # for the Vols.
Robert Hubbs also struggled in a hostile environment. Tennessee's most seasoned veteran is now just 14 of 47 from the field in his last five games.
Tennessee had no answer for Kentucky guard Malik Monk, who tallied 16 points by halftime.
