Tennessee men's basketball shut down now until Dec 5th wiping out ton of games
The Tennessee men’s basketball team will take the floor later than expected, even after originally canceling matchups against Charlotte and VCU this week.

According to a program release on Tuesday afternoon, team results from COVID-19 testing on Monday forced the continued pause.

The team will not travel to Indianapolis for next week's Jimmy V Classic. The Vols were set to face top-ranked Gonzaga in that matchup for the first time since 2018.

This pause also forces a cancelation for Tennessee’s game against Notre Dame in South Bend, a matchup that was reported but had not yet been finalized.

Unless any more positives come out at a later date, the Vols will resume action on Saturday, December 5, with the first game of the year against Cincinnati slated for December 12 in Thompson-Boling Arena.

With the first four matchups wiped from the 2020-21 slate, Tennessee will take the floor against a Bearcat team that beat the Vols 78-66 in Cincinnati last year.

The program also reported that head coach Rick Barnes remains in isolation, with very mild symptoms.

Probably a good thing for the Vols that game got cancelled. Gongaza would have beat the brakes off of them.

The VOLS-Zags matchup in Phoenix in 2018 was the best college basketball game I’ve ever been to. Top 5 matchup that went back and forth all game with 5-6 NBA guys. A shame we won’t get to see that matchup next week with probably even more future pros.

These two programs have played like 7 times in the last 10 years though so I’m sure we’ll get a fresh series announced for 2021 soon either on campuses or Nashville/Seattle.

B-ball teams ought to have COVID parties, get all 15 guys sick, then they’ve bought themselves 90 days free of contact tracing protocols.

KenPom spread was 3 fwiw. 70-67 projected score. A lot depends on how good Timme actually is but nothing about the matchup on paper looks like a beat down.

I think they should cancel nonconference and just try to get in 20 conference games over the next few months.

Vols always play a good schedule OOC. Normally helps them out in March
