It's an 18 point win but they lost the second half by 10.

19 turnovers. I know they played a lot of guys but they got away from fundamental basketball and made too many risky passes.

It's a win. Buckle up for the better teams.

That was an awful second half. I thought for a minute that I was watching Kellie's team.

Meh. They played a lot of guys big minutes that will never see the floor in SEC play. And it was almost like they intentionally de-emphasized DK.

Nothing really to learn from this one. They put them away before halftime and lost focus from there. Midweek, small crowd, crappy opponent. It happens.

Good teaching moments for Barnes. When you've just played Cuse... Purdue...Kansas...UNC....ILL... Then you play a Georgia Southern you bound to have a sloppy game.

Terrible second half.  No excuse for that.

Having said that, I was thinking at the start this is how they will play a team not ranked in the top 10 or 20....then realized GSU was winless. So not just a lower level team, but one of the worst in the country.

I realize that with a 28 point lead it can be tough to maintain that killer instinct, but even when things are not going well players can still give effort. To me, it seemed that Tennessee was outworked for a good portion of the second half - that is never acceptable imo.
