March, a month which is Meh
- The Lady Vols got their marching orders last night as the NCAA released the women's NCAA Tournament bracket, continuing their 35-year streak of appearances in every tournament. A 7 seed in the Sioux Falls regional, they'll face the bafflingly-named Green Bay Phoenix at 5PM EST on Friday. Also in Sioux Falls: Arizona State, Ohio State, and South Carolina :(
- Butch Jones received his third commitment of the 2017 class late last night as Marquez Bembry, a three-star athlete from Atlanta's Mount Vernon Presybterian School chose Tennessee. He's listed as 247's No. 66 Athlete (No. 747 overall) and projected to play DE in college.
- Bob Shoop spoke at length on Thursday about the process of getting to know his new players and settling into his role as Tennessee's defensive coordinator, and the video is here, if you're the type of person into watching Bob Shoop talk abstractly for 10 minutes in March (nobody's judging).
- Since taking a larger role after the injury of Beno Udrih, former Vol Josh Richardson has been a rookie standout for the Miami Heat this month, averaging 10.7 points a game in March and setting a career-high 22 against the Bulls on Friday. Also, he did this last night:
Josh Richardson with the hammer! https://t.co/M4lZHVLQ3M— NBA Lowdown (@NBALowdown) March 15, 2016
You're welcome. Happy Tuesday!
