Tennessee At Kansas
Saturday, January 25, 2020
The Tennessee men's basketball team hits the road for its nonconference finale against the third-ranked Kansas Jayhawks, inside Allen Fieldhouse this afternon. Tip-off is slated for 4:00 PM on 103.1 FM WIKQ with Bob Kesling and Bert Bertlekamp describing the action.
Last time out the Vols took care of business at home against Ole Miss, giving head coach Rick Barnes his 100th victory as Tennessee's head coach. UT controlled the contest from the outset, dominating the Rebels in the paint (outscoring them 30-20) and taking advantage of turnovers, holding a 15-4 advantage in points off turnovers.
Junior John Fulkerson led the way for UT, scoring a career-high 18 points and hauled in a career-high-tying 10 rebounds for his third career double-double. Freshman Olivier Nkamhoua was also big off the bench, finishing the night with 10 points and four big rebounds.
This will be the fifth all-time meeting between the Vols and the Jayhawks and the second time UT has traveled to Allen Fieldhouse.
A victory would be the Vols first true road win over an AP top five opponent since UT knocked off No. 1 Memphis, 66-62, in 2008.
Up next, Tennessee returns home to take on Texas A&M inside Thompson-Boling Arena on Tuesday night. The opening tap is set for 6:30 PM.
