Rick Barnes Remains Disappointed in Memphis Game Cancellation

Memphis bowed out of their game against Tennessee on Saturday in Nashville citing COVID issues.
Vols coach Rick Barnes has an issue with the Tigers vaccination rate or lack there of, and Barnes doesn’t want to deal with a team like that again.

Said Barnes:”We’re not going to risk scheduling a team that we know has many un

vaccinated players. That would be irresponsible on our part. I mean it could happen again. So we wouldn’t do that whether it would be Memphis or anybody else. We had people call us after the game after the cancellation the other day and say can you play tomorrow. If we had known earlier, we probably would have.”
