Tennessee is bothering U of L a bit with its length on defense. The Cards have a pair of early turnovers.
But the game had a big development before it was even two minutes old, when Tennessee big man Wayne Chism picked up his second foul.
U of L looks as if it is going to try to drive on Lofton. Jerry Smith already got by him once but couldn’t finish at the rim.
The Cards aren’t getting many looks from the outside, and I think Tennessee’s size and athleticism might make it more imperative that they look inside.
UT just forced a Cardinal timeout when the Cards couldn’t inbound against the full-court press. Pitino and Terrence Williams had a brief exchange as they met at the bench.
UT leads 5-4. Play back on …
