Tennessee Head Coach Cuonzo Martin(On the game)
"I thought Vanderbilt did a good job setting the tone and playing with a lot of energy. They got the crowd into the game. They competed on both ends of the floor. I thought we competed better in the second half with our energy and our plays. We got where we needed to be and did a great job rebounding."
"We did a good job with the plays, attacking the rim. We allowed our big guys to fill in and be ready to rebound."
"When you allow a guy to get his head up, anything can happen."
(On the energy of the team)
"You like to see your guys play better, but it happens. We got off to a slow start. It was an energy thing, we were still executing our plans and did a great job with that."
(On the loss and not knowing what the outcome of each game will be)
"Well it's tough but you have to experience it. You bounce back and learn from it. You look at film and try to correct it. That's the biggest key."
Tennessee Guard Jordan McRae(On any frustration with putting in the effort and not getting the results)
"Yeah it's frustrating for us but I'm ready to do what we did today and better in the next game."
(On this compared to the game versus Alabama)
"We definitely came out a little flat. It was tough playing from then on."
(On the inconsistency of their wins and losses)
"I mean it's tough for us but we just got to make sure everyone on the team doesn't stop and keeps going harder in practice, doing everyday things like that."
