Tennessee’s second big test of the season will come today in Phoenix. The Vols will face the top ranked Gonzaga Bulldogs, which will be their second game of the season against a top five opponent.
Kansas got the better of Tennessee a couple of weeks ago in Brooklyn after Grant Williams fouled out with a minute remaining. That one went to overtime, where the Vols ended up not having enough left in the tank. They’ll get another shot at a signature win today.
Tennessee is just 1-4 all time against Gonzaga, dating back to 2007. The Bulldogs are 9-0, which includes a win over Duke in Maui. Since then, they’ve survived a couple of tough games against Creighton and Washington.
