Tennessee Basketball: Bruce Pearl Said What About Cuonzo Martin?

The Volunteers beat in-state rival Vanderbilt Saturday 68-61 and kept alive any slim hopes of making the NCAA Tournament.

First year coach Cuonzo Martin is finishing the year strong in Knoxville taking over a tough situation from popular, but NCAA rule challenged Bruce Pearl.

Pearl, who took UT to six straight NCAA Tournaments and won at least one game in five of those, was gushing about Martin's performance this season.

Pretty kind words from a guy who was arguably Tennessee's best basketball coach in history.

No word if Derek Dooley has responded yet with a "I beat Vanderbilt too!"

(Georgia Tech fans may remember Cuonzo Martin interviewed for the Georgia Tech job last Spring, but both parties decided to go in a different direction)
