Tennessee Basketball is looking to start its season soon as the Vols have announced its first three games of the season, which starts in a few weeks.
As a basketball school, Tennessee basketball fans have been anticipating the basketball season since last year’s season was cut short. We’ve waited a long time for Tennessee to announce its first games of the season after its games against Wisconsin and Memphis were canceled as well as ESPN canceling the Charleston Classic tournament.
With the football season not quite turning out how fans would like, there are already some fans turning to the basketball season for hope of success.
After trying to figure something out for the past month or so after the cancellations, Tennessee has finally found its first three games of the 2020-21 season.
The Vols will be inviting the Charlotte 49ers and VCU to Knoxville for a mini-tournament to kickoff the season. All three teams will play each opponent once to start its season.
Following that, the Vols will start December in Indianapolis. The Vols will play Gonzaga in the Jimmy V Classic on December 2, with that game being moved to Indy.
I wouldn’t be surprised if more information continues to come out about Tennessee’s non-conference schedule and, eventually, the SEC schedule.
The Vols are still scheduled to face Kansas in the Big 12/SEC Challenge in January, so Rick Barnes and the Vols still have a few dates to fill for the remainder of December and January leading up to that game.
The season is quickly arriving as we’re only a few weeks away from Tennessee opening Thompson-Boling Arena’s doors to 4,000 fans for its first two home games.
