#1 Kansas Goes Down!

Posted by rtmsf on January 10th, 2010

Much more on this weekend’s ATB wrapup later, but how about Bruce Pearl’s Tennessee Volunteers, staring adversity in the face and having it slink away with its tail tucked?  The #1 Kansas Jayhawks ran into an emotionally-charged, feisty and gutty UT team this afternoon that showed pluck and heart despite losing four players to dismissal/suspension.  Credit to Bruce Pearl for doing what he does best – getting his six scholarship players and walk-ons to internalize their difficult situation and play the underdog role to a T.  Congrats to his team are in order.  College basketball at its finest!

Pearl Uses the Underdog Role Exceptionally Well
