It's the late shift tonight:  Tennessee returns to the Battle in Seattle for the first time since the 2007-08 season to face Gonzaga.  It's an 8:00 PM local tip, which means 11:00 PM here in the ET.  As we approach the longest night of the year, let's hope Tennessee makes it worth your while if you're up.

The Vols have been very good at just that against almost everyone this year, including at Butler last Saturday and against George Washington in Brooklyn.  I'm not sure if Gonzaga is better or worse than those two, but I do think they're a bigger match-up problem.  How the Vols defend Kyle Wiltjer and Domantas Sabonis will be educational not just for tonight, but how the Vols might attempt to guard SEC teams with a major post advantage.

Put the coffee on.  See you at 11:00 PM.
