Tennessee is back in action today at home against the Wisconsin Badgers. The Vols are looking to kick off a new era the right way, playing their first game without Lamonte Turner this afternoon. Turner is done for the year due to a lingering shoulder issue.
Getting the go at point guard today will be Josiah-Jordan James, the former five-star guard in the 2019 class. James has flashed a bit, but hasn’t been the consistent offensive threat that he’s needed to be to this point. Starting today, that has to change.
Wisconsin will be Tennessee’s final non-conference test before SEC play begins — and boy, do they ever have some issues to iron out. This one should be pretty interesting.
