Vols don't want to settle for NIT this season

Posted:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee's Cuonzo Martin has established himself as a rising star in his profession during his first four years as a head coach, but he still hasn't led a team to the NCAA tournament.

The Volunteers expect that to change this season.

Tennessee opens practice Friday with 6 of the top seven scorers back from a team that went 19-15 overall and 10-6 in the Southeastern Conference last season. The Vols reached the NIT last year to end a string of 6 consecutive NCAA tournament appearances, but they're ready to start a new streak this season.

Key returnees include senior forward Jeronne Maymon, junior guard Trae Golden and sophomore forward Jarnell Stokes. The Vols begin the season Nov. 9 against Kennesaw State.
