Highlights, notes: Vols hoops back at Pratt

In just 20 days Tennessee will host its first exhibition of the season.

With some new faces and a completely new coaching staff with a different style of play than what we saw last season, there is a lot of uncertainty about what is in store for the Vols in 2014-15.

Today, coach Donnie Tyndall and his coaching staff continued their preparations. Working to implement their aggressive style of the 2-3 zone and an offense that is up-tempo. For part of the practice, Tennessee worked with a shortened shot-clock, attempting to get a good look at the basket in 15-24 seconds.

It's still hard to tell at this juncture how well Tennessee will execute this game plan. Walk-on freshman point guard, Braxton Bonds, was possibly the most impressive guard on the floor today. From his hustle to his enthusiasm, the 6-1 Nashville native showed several times today that he can be a leader. Bonds was vocal with his teammates about finishing their sprints as he finished first nearly every time the team had to go baseline-to-baseline after a missed free throw.

Unfortunately, there was a lot of running involved.

Tennessee made just 2 of 10 from the charity stripe during the drill before Galen Campbell stepped up and hit both of his.
