Social media gives us more access to our favorite teams than we've ever had before, and the folks who run the @Vol_Hoops official Twitter account for Tennessee basketball do a great job of taking followers on the journey with the players.

The 10Sports team is also with the Vols, and you can follow along with their coverage here.

Moving on!

Game time! This one was closer than we'd like, but Vols got the win! 

Let's get this done!

Oh, we're ready!!!

Get your game faces on, guys!

Gosh, we're proud of these guys!

This is great stuff. Bet they will be very excited about this.. once they take care of Colgate, that is.

Looking sooooo good!

Thanks for the support guys!! (They're not the only one!) 

Gettin' squeaky clean for GAME DAY. Is there a Colgate joke in there?

Get a good night's sleep, guys!!

Game faces, on.

We're ready, coach.

The ADMIRAL is in the building.

Getting some practice in at Ohio State University:

Ready for a deep run!

They have arrived! Note Grant Williams is carrying the team's other favorite game---- The Settlers of Catan.

Wait... what? These guys love Pal's Sudden Service, too?

Ready to take care of business!

They're on their way!
