Tennessee basketball will have some awesome new kicks when the Vols hit the court in a few weeks.
The coming college basketball season means we'll see a number of awesome new team-specific sneakers very soon. Tennessee hoops posted a photo of new orange and white Nike Hyperdunks that appear to be available to the players. They are pretty sweet.
Vols men's basketball opens the exhibition season on November 3 against Slippery Rock. The regular season begins on November 11, when the Vols host Chattanooga. A few weeks later, Tennessee will head to Hawaii for the Maui Invitational. The team's first game in that tournament is against the Wisconsin Badgers on November 21.
Former Texas head coach Rick Barnes is entering his second year heading up the Vols program. Last season, Tennessee finished 15-19 (6-12 in SEC play), and 12th in the conference standings.
