Young Vols slumping as their postseason hopes fade

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The underclassmen who dominate Tennessee's roster are learning some hard lessons about how the intensity level changes as March approaches.

After outperforming preseason expectations for much of the season, Tennessee (15-14, 7-9 SEC) has dropped four of its last five games to fall out of contention for an NCAA Tournament at-large bid. In their last two games, the Volunteers lost 67-56 to Vanderbilt and 82-55 at South Carolina .

"Our last two opponents, there's no doubt their experience and understanding of where they are and what they're playing for is a factor," Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said. "It is something that I think our guys are going through and learning, that it's not easy. Winning's not easy, and it gets tougher as the year goes on."
