Lack of consistent scoring makes Tennessee tough to predict

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee's two victories over ranked opponents this season reflects how good the Volunteers can be when they're at their best.

Junior forward Derek Reese says if the Vols come ready to play, "We can beat any team in the country."

The Volunteers (10-5, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) generally have shown up ready to play, but they only occasionally have been ready to score.

Tennessee recorded its lowest home point total in the history of the shot-clock era last week while losing 56-38 to Alabama. The Vols followed that up by shooting over 50 percent Tuesday in a 74-69 triumph over No. 19 Arkansas.

That makes it tough to guess just what kind of performance Tennessee will produce Saturday at Missouri (7-9, 1-2).
