His new teammates are making the point guard's adjustment easier.

After graduating from Memphis in three years, Barton transferred for his final season of eligibility. He cited the sales pitch of Tennessee's players as a major reason why he selected the Volunteers, who are seeking to reach the NCAA tournament after back-to-back NIT appearances.

The Vols return first-team all-SEC guard Jordan McRae and second-team all-SEC forward Jarnell Stokes. They welcome back former second-team all-SEC forward Jeronne Maymon, who missed all of last season with a knee injury.

They needed an experienced point guard after the offseason departure of Trae Golden, now at Georgia Tech. Barton fills that void.
