Tennessee Basketball 2005-06: Turn Up The Heat DVD & Double Trouble
YEAR ONE OF THE BRUCE PEARL ERA AND CLASSIC DOUBLE TROUBLE ON ONE DVD!
On March 28, 2005, the Tennessee basketball landscape was forever changed with the introduction of Bruce Pearl as the Vols new head coach. The announcement of created instant excitement across Big Orange Country as Pearl's contagious enthusiasm and tireless work ethic created optimism for the future. Yet, no one would have believed what was about to happen in the present. Just eight short months after Pearl arrived in Knoxville, his first team took the floor with a tenacity fans had never seen. Game after game, huge numbers of Vol faithful were brought to their feet as Pearl ushered in an intense fast-paced style of play. The Vols sent a message to the nation with a December manhandling of sixth-ranked Texas on the road, then backed up that statement with a memorable run through the Southeastern Conference. Picked to finish fifth, out of six teams, in the SEC's Eastern Division, the Volunteers shocked the college basketball nation by piling up conference wins over the likes of Florida, Kentucky, South Carolina, Vanderbilt and others. Winning the SEC East outright, the Vols topped off their magical run earning a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament and the respect of peers all across college basketball. This is a team Tennessee fans will never forget. Now, through the magic of Vol Network Home Entertainment, their hustle and on-court heroics will live on.
