Vols a high; Washington's trip a low

Some thoughts and analysis from the college hoops world …

Best Win of the Weekend: Duh. It was Tennessee over Kansas. The Vols played with great energy and focus and Kansas did not. For the first time in a week, Bruce Pearl wanted to go to a news conference. And, who is Skylar McBee? When he hit the 3, I was thinking only of the diner scene in "Back to the Future" with Biff giving the noogie to "McFly." McBee is billed as having turned down scholarship offers from East Carolina, Marshall, Santa Clara and Winthrop, and he lists his major as political science. Right now, he could run for governor of Tennessee. When asked in August what he envisioned being his first big play in Thompson-Boling Arena, McBee responded, "Probably draining a 3-ball from the wing." Good call.
