Tailspin, Nosedive, Whatever You Want To Call It… The Vols Are In One

Just eleven days ago, Tennessee basketball was nearing its high point under Bruce Pearl.  The Vols were coming off a road beatdown of #3 Pittsburgh.  they were climbing the national rankings and #1 in the RPI ratings.  Since New Year’s Day arrests on January 1st, 2010, the Vols had gone 25-7 and reached an Elite Eight.

And then…

Three straight losses to unranked foes now have Bruce Pearl and company looking for answers and Vol fans’ holding their stomachs.

“It was a very disappointing loss,” Bruce Pearl said of last night’s 65-64 loss to Southern Cal and former Vol coach Kevin O’Neill.  (O’Neill also beat Tennessee in Los Angeles last year.)  The loss to the Trojans came on the heels of upset losses to Charlotte and tiny Oakland.

Overall, this is just the second three-game losing streak of the Pearl Era at Tennessee.

Up next: A home game with unranked Belmont… a school that has made the NCAA Tournament three times since 2006.
