KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The demands of reconstructing a roster and getting ready for a wedding have left new Tennessee coach Donnie Tyndall with little opportunity to relax.
Tyndall added eight players in a three-week span last month to rebuild a team that had been decimated by graduations and defections. Now he must help this group establish some chemistry while also preparing for his Aug. 2 wedding.
Tyndall's first Tennessee team will bear little resemblance to the one that went 24-13 and reached a regional semifinal this past season under Cuonzo Martin, now the coach at California.
Tennessee's only returning scholarship players from the 2013-14 team are Josh Richardson, Robert Hubbs III, Armani Moore and Derek Reese. Richardson's the only player in that group who averaged more than five points per game.
