- Vols coach Cuonzo Martin wore an orange blazer for the first time as head coach of Tennessee. Ray Mears was the first coach to don the trademark coat during his tenure, debuting it in 1962 when he was hired. It is believed that every Vols coach since Mears (Don DeVoe, Wade Houston, Jerry Green, Buzz Peterson and Bruce Pearl) with the except of Kevin O'Neill wore an orange blazer at some point as coach of the Vols.
MAYMON MAKES BUCKETS
- Jeronne Maymon scored in double-figures for the fifth time in six games with 15 points (11 in the first half). It was Maymon's 12th game this season and 13th game in his career in double-figures.
STOKING THE GLASS
- In his fourth college game, Jarnell Stokes grabbed double-figure rebounds for the second game in a row with 10. He had pulled down 12 against UConn last Saturday. He now has 34 boards in four games (8.5 per game).
YEMI BACK ON THE BOARD
- Yemi Makanjuola scored his first points in eight games -- since his breakout 18-point effort vs. The Citadel (12/29/11). His seven points were his first of 2012 after being held scoreless in 37 minutes over six games played since the turn of the calendar.
TOUGH SCORING DAYS
- The 47 points were a season low as well as the field goal percentage of 35.3.

The combination of Trae Golden, Cameron Tatum, Skylar McBee, Kenny Hall and Jordan McRae tallied a total of eight points. The quintet came into the game averaging 45.4 points.
