Making History in the Elite Eight



I now know what it feels like to be heartbroken and insanely proud all at the same time. I am a HUGE sports fan, especially football and basketball. The Vols made history this year by making it to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament. The men's basketball team had never made it past the Sweet 16 until this year. It has been so much fun watching our basketball program grow into what it is today under the direction of Coach Bruce Pearl. We beat Ohio State to make it to the Elite Eight for the first time ever! After a very close game, we lost by one point in the last 10 seconds to Michigan State in the Elite Eight. Although we failed to make it to the Final Four, I am so PROUD to be a TENNESSEE VOL. I can't wait to see if we can build on this next year. Coach Pearl, Great job...keep up the good work. You have made people excited about Tennessee Basketball. Go VOLS!
