Tennessee vs. Saint Joseph’s: How to watch and open game thread

NCAA Basketball: Tennessee Tech at Tennessee Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

Tennessee basketball is back in action tonight against Saint Joseph’s. The Volunteers are looking for win No. 5 on the season, following a couple of dominant efforts against App State and Tennessee Tech.

Tennessee climbed all the way to No. 8 in this week’s AP Poll following those wins.

The Volunteers get a battle-tested Saint Joseph’s team tonight. The Hawks are 0-4 on the year, but have played a brutal schedule. Losses to Kansas, Auburn, Drexel and Villanova highlight the schedule to this point, and it won’t get any easier tonight.

Tennessee has been easing along true freshmen Jaden Springer and Keon Johnson in the first few games of the season. The Vols’ elite defensive effort has been the headline to this point, while their offense plays catch-up. With just a couple of non-conference games left, getting that offense clicking will be the focus once again tonight.
