(WBIR) The Vols Men's Basketball team hosts its home-opener game Saturday at 7 p.m. against USC Upstate. This is the first meeting for the two teams.

Coming off Tuesday's 67-63 loss at Xavier, UT looks to avoid its first 0-2 start to a season since 1965.

History is certainly on UT's side as the Volunteers have won 21 straight home-openers and have a 9-game regular season win streak against current members of the Atlantic Sun Conference.

During Tuesday's loss, the five newcomers to the Volunteer's squad combined for 12 points, nine rebounds, four assists and just two turnovers.

Saturday night's home-opener is being broadcast on SportSouth. You can catch all the highlights and hear from the team tonight on WBIR.
