New, 5 comments

‘Through The T’ is your daily morning scoop of news and links, catching you up on all things Tennessee.

NCAA Basketball: Tennessee at Arkansas Brett Rojo-USA TODAY Sports

The news of the morning begins with a blowout road loss to Arkansas. The Razorbacks, finally at full strength, thumped Tennessee from start to finish on Wednesday night at Bud Walton Arena.

Mason Jones poured in 37 points, making up for his nine point performance just three weeks ago in Knoxville. Tennessee got within striking distance during the middle portion of the second half, but Jones quickly put that momentum to rest.

Tennessee is now 15-13 overall, falling to 7-8 in SEC play. They finish with Florida, at Kentucky and Auburn.

Ouch.

Onto better news.

White hot Vols roll on the diamond

Tennessee baseball rolls once again, this time crushing UNC-Asheville. It was a 12-1 beatdown for the Volunteers, improving their record to 9-0 on the year.

No. 24 Tennessee was powered by three home runs offensively, plus a strong outing from freshman pitcher Mark McLaughlin. The Georgia native gave up just one hit over five innings in relief, picking up his first career win.

Tennessee’s next game comes on Friday night at home against George Washington at 4 p.m. ET.
