KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — SEC basketball is on the upswing, and as likable and popular as Tennessee coach Rick Barnes is, he’ll need to produce results to keep the Vols’ fans happy.
Barnes has yet to finish over .500 his first two seasons at Tennessee, so year three of his rebuilding effort will come with exceptions.
The Vola landed Howard graduate transfer James Daniel, a 6-foot guard who led the NCAA in scoring in 2015-2016.
Howard chose Tennessee over Ohio State, Michigan and DePaul, citing his relationship with Barnes.
WNML’s Josh Ward also talked Alabama football with Tuscaloosa sports radio’s Ryan Fowler, who hosts the Crimson Tide’s daily podcast for SEC Country.
