Tennessee's home schedule is arguably the most impressive in school history. With the recent expansion of the Southeastern Conference, the Vols will host nine league games for the first time. Eight of UT's home opponents appeared in last season's NCAA Tournament, and nine of those teams posted a year-end RPI of 75 or better.
The Volunteers complete list of home opponents includes (in order) Kennesaw State, Oakland, Wichita State, Presbyterian, Western Carolina, Xavier, Memphis, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Alabama, Vanderbilt, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Florida and Missouri.
Tennessee boasts a talented and experienced roster that features four returning starters. The Volunteers are ranked 22nd in Blue Ribbon Yearbook's preseason Top 25. And recently, a panel of experts on CBSsports.com ranked UT forwards Jarnell Stokes and Jeronne Maymon among the top-70 players in college basketball.
VOLS OFFERING TWO ENTICING TICKET PACKAGES
Fans interested in being a part of the Tennessee basketball team's 2012-13 home schedule have two discounted ticket packages from which to choose.
The "Holiday Pack" gives fans the option to select three of Tennessee's five home games during the holiday season - Wichita State, Presbyterian, Western Carolina, Xavier and Memphis - and obtain lower-level seats for the selected trio of games. The Holiday Pack is available for just $75 per seat, but availability is limited.
Fans also can take advantage of the "Pick Your Starting Five Pack," which allows them to attend five of eight select SEC games for only $75 per seat. This upper-level ticket pack is available for the Mississippi State, Alabama, Vanderbilt, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Florida and Missouri games (not Ole Miss).
