KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee is paying a price for its lack of depth.
Saturday's game between Tennessee (17-11, 8-7 SEC) and Vanderbilt (15-12, 7-8) matches two of the least productive benches in the Southeastern Conference. Tennessee ranks 12th out of 14 SEC teams in bench scoring in league competition. Vanderbilt is dead last in that category.
Vanderbilt's bench problems are due to the fact the Commodores have only seven healthy scholarship players. Tennessee's troubles are tougher to explain.
Tennessee's bench averages 8 points per game in league competition and has reached double figures in just four of its 15 conference games. Auburn ranks 13th in the SEC with 7.9 points per game in league play.
Tennessee's bench scored 15.5 points per game in SEC competition last season.
