The men's basketball live threads return tonight as the Cuonzo Martin Era opens with an exhibition battle against Carson-Newman. The game will be streamed live at UTSports.com with a 7:00 PM ET tipoff.
The Vols will roll with old faces in the starting lineup: sophomore Trae Golden at point, sophomore Jordan McRae (now wearing #52) and senior Cameron Tatum at guard, ad juniors Kenny Hall and Jeronne Maymon at forward. Martin wants to run a nine man rotation, so keep an eye on playing time off the bench, where you'll likely see returning players Skylar McBee and Renaldo Woolridge (now wearing #3) up first. True freshman Wes Washpun (#4 - CHI$$LE!) should be the backup point guard.
New faces and jersey numbers: freshmen guard Josh Richardson (#1), guard Quinton Chievous (#31), center Yemi "Can I just call you Yemi?" Mankanjuola (#0), and juco forward Dwight Miller (#25). And hey: Tyler Summitt may still get some action.
(You could also use this as a Thursday Night Football thread, but I mean, you should probably watch this instead of Florida State/Boston College.)
