If a cool head is the key to being a great point guard, Tennessee signee Darius Thompson should be on his way to superstardom.

Consider his recent timeline:

April 17: Thompson signs with Tennessee, knowing he'll almost certainly spend the 2013-14 basketball season backing up senior point guard Trae Golden.

May 7: Golden announces he's leaving school. Thompson suddenly finds himself the odds-on favorite to be Tennessee's No. 1 point guard.

May 26: Antonio Barton announces he'll transfer to Tennessee upon receiving his undergraduate degree from Memphis this summer. Thompson suddenly finds himself back in the role of freshman understudy to a senior starter.

Through it all Darius Thompson's mood never changed. Golden's announcement didn't delight him and Barton's announcement didn't deflate him. The term "even keel" was invented for this guy.

Although Golden's departure temporarily thrust Thompson into the first-team point-guard job, he never viewed the situation in that light.

"I really didn't look at it as pressure on myself," he said. "A lot of people was telling me that but I really didn't worry about it."

Likewise, Thompson's mood was unaffected by Barton's declaration, even though it almost certainly relegates the freshman to a backup role for 2013-14.

"It's going to help me a lot, (learning from) a senior guard," Thompson said. "I'm going to be under his wing, really, so it'll help me a lot."

Thompson averaged 6.4 assists per game in leading Murfreesboro's Blackman High School to a 30-1 record last season. Still, many folks considered him a "combo guard" due to his scoring skills. He averaged 16.4 points per game as a high school senior, shooting 55.7 percent from the field and 42.4 percent from 3-point range.

For what it's worth, Thompson never considered himself a combo guard.

"Always point guard," he said. "I feel like that's what I'm better at – point guard – just because of my passing ability and my court vision I have."

Point guard is the most difficult position – mentally and physically – for a freshman to try and play at the college level. When asked if the challenge concerns him, Thompson smiled softly.

"I don't think about it," he said. "It's basketball … have fun."

Thompson's biggest fan may be fellow freshman Robert Hubbs, the heralded five-star shooting guard from Newbern.

"I knew what Darius could do a long time before anybody," Hubbs said. "We'd been playing against each other. I knew he can really shoot the ball if he's open; he can create for other players. That's what you want in a point guard."

You also want a guy who is unselfish enough to enjoy making a good pass as much as making a basket.

"That's true," Hubbs said. "He doesn't really care about scoring. I asked him the other day about his objective for the day. He said ‘I'm just out there to have fun, pass the ball around.' I like that about him."

Already enrolled in summer school, Thompson has been playing pickup games with his new Vol teammates for several weeks. He immediately noticed they are different from him.

"I'm getting used to the college game – how much quicker and stronger everybody is," he said. "That's the biggest difference … and how much smarter they are."

Recognizing that he could be a key contributor for the 2013 Vols, teammates are giving Thompson tips to hasten his adjustment to the college game.

"It's helped a lot," he said. "Jordan McRae and Jeronne Maymon have really helped me. If I'm struggling they're there to pick me up and encourage me to keep going as hard as I can."

Thompson has a work ethic few college freshmen can match. That's partly because his dad, Lonnie, is a longtime coach who currently serves as head man at Cumberland University in Lebanon.

"I've been in the gym all the time with my dad's players," Darius said. "I see how hard they go, then I try to bring it to my game."

In addition to a cool head, good skills and dedication, young Thompson has a competitive nature that few can match. Last Wednesday he showed up for Rocky Top League action eager to play, despite two major concerns.

First, he was battling a serious stomach virus. Second, the opposing point guard was scheduled to be former University of Kansas player Josh Selby, coming off a 50-point performance in his RTL opener two nights earlier.

As fate would have it, Selby didn't show for Wednesday night's game, sparing Thompson the task of trying to battle nausea and an elite point guard on the same night. Rather than relief, however, Thompson felt disappointment.

"I wanted to play him," he said. "I was looking forward to the experience of playing against him."

How's that for a competitive nature?
