Tennessee basketball vs. Lipscomb: Time, TV channel, how to watch online (December 9, 2017)

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee brings a ranked team into a game for the first time since Bruce Pearl walked the sidelines for the Vols.

Coach Rick Barnes has developed a hard-working, team-centric culture that has been paying off in wins so far this season. The Vols are ranked No. 24 and look like an NCAA tournament team seven games into the season.

Tennessee escaped with a 77-70 victory against Georgia Tech last week. The first true road game of the season showed some cracks in the facade.

Forward Grant Williams fouled out with 11 points and 6 rebounds. He will have to be a more consistent performer to carry the team to the tournament this season.

The Vols will face North Carolina on Dec. 17 in Thompson-Boling Arena. The game will be a true litmus test for the team.
