KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl wanted the
23rd-ranked Volunteers to start learning immediately from their
exhibition loss to Division II Indianapolis.
Pearl had his players return to the film room at 5:30 a.m. on
Tuesday to watch tape of their 79-64 loss to the Greyhounds on
The Vols struggled against Indianapolis' full-court pressure
defense, one that's been a trademark of many Pearl-coached teams.
They also failed to dominate the post game, despite being much
larger than the Greyhounds.
Pearl says he's disappointed in how he coached and disappointed
in the team's lack of effort and energy.
Tennessee opens the 2010-11 season Friday night against
Chattanooga at Thompson-Boling Arena.
