The Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles and the Tennessee Volunteers will both be gunning for a victory on Tuesday when they meet at Thompson-Boling Arena.

ABOUT TENNESSEE TECH (4-7): The Golden Eagles have struggled against a light schedule, so coach Steve Payne was happy to see the solid effort in which his team held Michigan State to 34.8 percent shooting in the second half while giving the Spartans a scare. “When you’re competitive, you’ve got to make plays,” Payne said afterward. “When there’s an opportunity to make plays to tighten it up and win the game, you’ve got to do those things. … But I’m proud of our guys. I thought that was a step forward for us.” Junior guard Aleksa Jugovic averages a team-best 17.1 points and 7.3 rebounds while senior guard Kajon Mack (10.2) also scores in double digits.

ABOUT TENNESSEE (4-4): Senior guard Robert Hubbs III was a stellar 9-of-11 from the field while scoring 21 points against North Carolina and is averaging 18.3 points over the last four games. Hubbs, who is averaging team-leading 14.8 points, started slowly this season but his shooting percentage now sits at 53.5 and he is 25-of-26 from the free-throw line. Backup freshman guard Lamonte Turner averages 10.3 points and his 12 3-pointers stand second on the squad behind freshman guard Jordan Bowden, who has connected on 13 while averaging 9.3 points.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Volunteers listed as 16.5-point favorites versus the Golden Eagles, while the game’s total is sitting at 149 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

Tennessee was a 73-71 loser in its last match on the road against Tar Heels. They covered the +19-point spread as underdogs.

In their last action, Tennessee Tech was a 71-63 loser on the road against Spartans. They covered the +18.5-point spread as underdogs.

Tennessee just missed the opportunity for a major upset and now the Volunteers want to make sure they aren’t the upset victims when they host Tennessee Tech in Tuesday’s non conference game. Tennessee led by as many as 15 points while leading then-No. 5 North Carolina for most of the way on Sunday before being overtaken down the stretch and suffering a 73-71 setback.

Volunteers coach Rick Barnes wanted no part of the moral victories chatter after his squad let a golden opportunity slip away against the Tar Heels. “It’s easy to go in the locker room and say, ‘We did this, we did that’ but the fact is we came to win and we didn’t,” Barnes said afterward. “I don’t want them to feel good about being close in games. We’ve got to figure out a way to get over the hump.” The defeat followed a three-game winning streak in which Tennessee won by an average of 25.7 points. Tennessee Tech is just 1-5 on the road and remained in range at Michigan State on Saturday before falling 71-63.
