Tennessee Volunteers Tide Basketball History

The Tennessee Volunteers are a Division I program located in Knoxville, Tenn. Tennessee is an original member of the Southeastern Conference.

Tennessee made the NCAA Tournament for the 24th time in 2022, winning 27 games and its first SEC Tournament title in 43 years. The third-seeded Volunteers wound up losing to No. 11 seed Michigan 76-68 in the second round.

While the Volunteers have not matched the dominance of Tennessee’s women’s basketball team, an eight-time NCAA champion, they’ve had plenty of their success. The Volunteers have made eight Sweet 16s plus an Elite Eight in 2010. Tennessee went 28-9 in 2010 and beat San Diego State, Ohio and Ohio State in the NCAA Tournament, en route to the regional final.

The sixth-seeded Volunteers ultimately fell a win short of their first Final Four, losing 70-69 to No. 5 seed Michigan State. The Volunteers returned to the Big Dance in 2011, but even a sixth consecutive tournament trip wasn’t enough to save Bruce Pearl’s job.

The sixth-year coach, whose job had been clouded by a pending NCAA investigation, was fired following a first-round loss to Michigan.

Pearl was replaced by Cuonzo Martin, who left after three seasons for the California job. Martin’s successor, Donnie Tyndall, was dismissed after just one season because of potential NCAA infractions at his former job, Southern Mississippi.

At long last, the Volunteers found stability in Barnes. Hired in 2015, the former Texas coach posted a .649 winning percentage and reached the NCAA Tournament four times over his first seven seasons on Rocky Top. The Volunteers also won two SEC titles during that span, including a regular season championship in 2018 — their first in a decade.

While Tennessee fell victim to a second-round upset in 2018, losing 63-62 to No. 11 seed Loyola-Chicago, the Volunteers reached the regional semifinals the following season. That run ended with a 99-94 overtime loss to No. 3 seed Purdue.

The Volunteers carried strong postseason odds into the 2022-23 season, Barnes’ eighth at the helm, as they were picked to finish third in the SEC preseason media poll.

Tennessee has also played 13 times in the National Invitational Tournament, with a pair of trips to the semifinals (1969 and 1985). The Volunteers’ most recent appearance in the consolation tournament came in 2013.

Notably, the program has a strong track record of producing pros, with an alumni base that includes Naismith Hall of Famer Bernard King, former NBA All-Stars Dale Ellis and Allan Houston (the school’s all-time leading scorer with 2,801 points), Ernie Grunfeld, Chris Lofton and C.J. Watson.

Seven former Volunteers currently play in the NBA: Kennedy Chandler, Tobias Harris, Keon Johnson, Josh Richardson, Admiral Schofield, Jaden Springer and Grant Williams.
