Tennessee basketball: Myth of Yves Pons grows before Vols debut http://tnne.ws/2gRdtcC


Quote
Tennessee basketball players call him Tarzan.

Some say the chiseled 18-year-old never lifted a weight until he joined the Vols. Fans saw him leap from just inside the foul line for a dunk last week. And his French accent makes him seem even more mysterious.

Yves Pons (pronounced Eve Pawns) sounds more like a mythical figure than a freshman small forward.

Three Points from No. 15 Tennessee’s terrible, no-good, very-bad loss at Alabama on Saturday here in Tuscaloosa: http://bit.ly/2EhK5Ku


Quote
ennessee wasn’t the only ranked team to have a clunker this week.

But … wow, Vols. Wow. Just .. wow.

Tennessee won 18 of its first 23 games this season, and the five losses were by a combined 30 points. And then Saturday happened. The Vols lost by 28 points. In one game.

Saturday also was Tennessee’s first loss of the season to a team outside the top 50 in the RPI, but Alabama probably will jump back into the top 50 now.

Vols coach Rick Barnes said moments after the game that he was “baffled” by Saturday’s performance, and that he didn’t think it was possible for this team — a team he genuinely loves — to play that poorly. Barnes surely wasn’t the only one to think that. That team in orange jerseys on Saturday looked nothing like the same team that was on the floor the past 23 games.

Rick Barnes gives possible explanation for Tennessee’s poor performance against Alabama


Quote
Tennessee was rolling through the back half of its schedule on a six-game win streak. Then, everything came crashing down in the 78-50 loss to Alabama at Coleman Coliseum. It was the most-lopsided loss in the history of the rivalry played at the arena.

Coach Rick Barnes offered up his explanation to reporters after the game, though he seemed to be as surprised as the fans.

“What happened [Saturday night] could happen any other game if we don’t play the way we’re capable of, and compete the way we’re capable of,” Barnes said. “We didn’t do that. If it was an emotional letdown, it was all because of us being immature. The fact is, I’m baffled by it, to be honest with you. But we got what we deserved.”

Tennessee has three upperclassmen on the roster — James Daniel, Admiral Schofield and Kyle Alexander — who get significant playing time. This is still a rather young team despite the number of minutes many of the upperclassmen have logged.

This could simply be a case of a young team resting on its laurels before achieving anything of real significance.

During the six-game win streak, the Vols finished off a season sweep of Kentucky and was ranked No. 15 in the country. There has even been some talk of the team potentially making a push for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. The Vols would be a No. 4 seed if the tournament began today. [It does not.]

“Defensively, it was as bad as we’ve played all year long, obviously,” Barnes said.

Rick Barnes has now won 20 games or more in 20 seasons as a head coach. Tennessee holds off Florida in Knoxville. Vols have been a major surprise nationally.

Florida coach Mike White on Tennessee: That team plays as hard as any team in the country. They play so hard.
