Vols Basketball Team Needs to Bring Intensity From Practice to the Game
The Vols basketball team has lost three in-a-row going into their match-up Saturday night against Vanderbilt.
Vols forward Admiral Schofield says the team needs to do a better a job of bringing the intensity from practice to the actual games.
Said Schofield:”I mean if you watch us in practice, we’re two different teams on game day. We cut harder in practice. We execute to the ‘T’ in practice. And then sometimes in games we seem kind of sluggish. We’re not running as fast.”
Added head coach Rick Barnes:”They know I’m not going to let them not bring the energy, but I can’t stop games like I can stop it in practice. A young group of guys are learning a lot of things right now and one of it being the level that you’ve got to play with every single day.”
The Vols and Vanderbilt tip at 8:30pm on Saturday night, and the game will be televised on the SEC Network.
