It's officially "Basketball Time in Tennessee!" With the Vols finishing exhibition play, it's also time for UT students to officially join the best student section in the nation - the Rocky Top Rowdies.
The First Game:
Vols: Friday, Nov. 9th vs. Kennesaw State 7 p.m. ET
The "Rocky Top Rowdies" are Tennessee's sixth man, and their impact on games at Thompson-Boling Arena is powerful.
"The Rowdies are great," Vols point guard Trae Golden said. "A loud student section always gets me pumped up and ready to play. I can't wait to hit a three and see them go crazy."
