Leading the way last week was senior third baseman Matt Duffy who was named the SEC Player of the Week after hitting .381 and knocking in 12 runs on the week. uThe Vols hold a 149-126 advantage over Kentucky all-time, dating back to 1915. UT claimed two of three from the Wildcats last season in Knoxville. After falling, 8-12, on Friday night, UT won the next two 8-6 and 3-1. uThe Tennessee offense currently ranks first in the SEC in almost every major offensive category with a .338 batting average, .440 on base percentage, .504 slugging pct., 186 hits and 277 total baes. uFreshman Ethan Bennett has hit four home runs in the last four games to grab the team lead. He has recorded multiple RBIs in each of his last six contest and is hitting .542 (13-for-24) with 16 RBIs and nine runs scored during that span. uThe contest with Austin Peay on Wednesday marked the Orange and White's first road game of the year, as Tennessee opened the 2011 season with 16 straight home games. That is the longest homestand for the Vols since they played 22 consecutive games in Knoxville to open the 1963 campaign. uThe Orange and White has been ultra-aggressive on the bases this season, swiping an SEC-high 44 bags in 54 attempts. That is nine more than any other team in the conference. With his league-leading 15, senior Khayyan Norfork alone has as many or more than four different SEC teams. The Vols had nine thefts alone on Feb. 27 vs. Canisius, led by three each from Matt Duffy and Andrew Toles. Khayyan Norfork also had two in that contest. uAfter recording four saves in all of 2010, the Vols already have surpassed that mark with eight saves in 17 games this year. They have come from six different pitchers no less as well (Williams, Steckenrider, Dean, Thornton, Ramseyx2 and Godleyx2). uIn UT's 18-4 win over New Orleans on March 9, Duffy became just the second player in UT history to hit for the cycle, finishing 4-for-6 with three runs scored and four RBIs. Chris Burke is the only other Vol to accomplish the rare feat, doing so against Vanderbilt on May 11, 2001. uUT Opening Day starter junior Steven Gruver has set the tone for the Vol pitching staff so far in 2011, leading the team to a pair of shutouts in his first three starts and throwing a complete game in his fourth. He opened the year with 16.2 scoreless innings, and has struck out 30 while walking just six. uHaving recently scored the 100th run of his career, senior Josh Liles is nearing two more milestones. He needs just one RBI to reach 100 in that category as well, while 36 more hits would make him the 15th player in UT history with 200 hits. BROADCAST INFORMATION PROBABLE UT STARTERS Avg.

    NOTES AND STORYLINESuTennessee won six games in a six-day span last week and has won nine consecutive contests to mark the

    longest run since head coach Todd Raleigh arrived in Knoxville in 2008. Leading the way last week was senior third baseman Matt Duffy who was named the SEC Player of the Week after hitting .381 and knocking in 12 runs on the week.

    uThe Vols hold a 149-126 advantage over Kentucky all-time, dating back to 1915. UT claimed two of three from the Wildcats last season in Knoxville. After falling, 8-12, on Friday night, UT won the next two 8-6 and 3-1.

    TODD RALEIGHFourth SeasonWestern Carolina, 1991Record at UT: 98-86 (.533)Career Record: 355-295 (.546)

    Tennessee head coach Todd Raleigh is in his fourth season at Rocky Top after guiding his alma mater, Western Carolina, for eight seasons. While at UT, Raleigh has had 12 players drafted, including two in 2008 and five more in both 2009 and 2010, and two more sign free-agent contracts following the completion of their eligibility. Nine of those players were drafted in the top-20

    rounds, highlighted by 2009 first-round selection Kentrail Davis. In 19 seasons as a collegiate coach, Raleigh has now produced a total of 45 MLB draft picks and 63 professional players.

    Under Raleigh's guidance, the Vols have steadily moved up in the NCAA RPI in each of the last three sea-sons, improving from 91 in 2008 to 58 in 2009 and 45 in 2010. Over the past two seasons, Raleighs squads have belted out 168 round-trippers (87 in 2009, 81 in 2010), good for the second-most prolific two-year period in school history.

    During his tenure in Cullowhee, Raleighs clubs won two regular-season Southern Conference champion-ships, one Southern Conference tournament title, turned in five top-three league finishes and made a pair of NCAA Regional appearancesreaching the Regional final both times.

    His 2007 WCU team posted a winning record against teams in the top 35 of the RPI and earned a rare mid-major at-large bid to the NCAA Championships. The Catamounts were touted by ESPNs Kyle Peterson as featuring an SEC-style offense.

    In his 19 seasons as a collegiate assistant or head coach, Raleighs teams have finished third or better in their respective league 12 times (63 percent).

    Raleigh and his wife, Stephanie, have four children: Caleb John Cal (13), Emma Grace (11), Carley Elizabeth (4) and Todd Anthony T (1).

    expectations on myself and this program than I do, UT Head Coach Todd Raleigh said. There is no doubt in my mind that we have this program headed in the right direction, especially this season. Everyone is on the same page in terms of coming to work every single day with the mindset of getting better. In the long run, that is really the only thing we can control.

    Head Coach Todd Raleigh

    Since I got here in the fall of 2007, we have improved every aspect of this program, from the facilities, to the Academic Progress Rate to the NCAA RPI. The last piece of the puzzle is putting it all together on the field and getting to the postseason. Has it happened as fast as we would have liked? Most certainly not. I understand the expectations of our fans, and this may sound odd, but I like the fact that some of them arent too happy right now. I love that they expect greatness, just like I do. Have there been some extenuating circumstances that have slowed us down a little? Sure, but our goal from day one has been to build a program, not a team. I have no doubt that that stuff is in the past and we are moving forward. We are going to be a national power, no question about that. I am confident that we are headed in the right direction and cannot wait to get this season started.

    Head Coach Todd Raleigh

    Ash brings a lot of energy and great ideas to our staff, especially with his insight on base running. It is going to be a critical year in that area because of all of the bat changes and he has done a tremendous job revamping our efforts on that part of the game. We stole a lot of bases last year, but I think we are going to step it up another level this season and put a lot of pressure on opposing teams.

    Head Coach Todd Raleigh

    We have been working on a lot of small ball stuff. We don't have as many power guys, so we have to get back to the basics. A lot of bunting, base running and just small ball stuff. It's not a traditional team like we have had in the past but we are getting use to it. Top to bottom, it's just a group of scrappy guys. We are going to score runs in many different ways and put pres-sure on the other team to make mistakes."

    Senior First Baseman Josh Liles

    Our attitude is one of high intensity. That is one thing that we have focused on in our practices and scrimmages this fall and leading up to the spring. The chemisty on this team is definitely improved over what it has been in the last couple of years. We have a close-knit group and a group of seniors to lead us. We've set the bar high from the very beginning. The SEC Tournament is a bare minimum."

    THE TALENTED MR. NORFORK (FROM RIPLEY) UT senior second baseman Khayyan Norfork has gotten off to a hottest starts in the nation in 2011, hitting safely in 16 of the first 17 games of the season. He leads the team with 11 multiple-hit contests. Through 17 games, the Ripley, Tenn., native tops the nation with a .625 on-base percentage and ranks in the top 10 with a .492 batting average and 15 stolen bases. His 17 walks and .780 slugging percentage, meanwhile, both top the SEC.

    GRUVER SETTING THE TONE ON THE MOUND Junior starting pitcher Steven Gruver has done a fantastic job setting the tone for a UT pitching staff that looks much improved over recent years. In his first three starts alone, he led the Vols to a pair of shutouts before tossing a complete game in his fourth start, So far this year, he has struck out 30 and walked just six in 28.1 innings of work. He went six scoreless against Milwaukee on Opening Day before shutting down Canisius for seven frames on Feb. 26 when he posted a career-high 10 strikeouts. He has now pitched 6.0+ innings seven times in his careers. In those seven games, he is 5-0 with a 1.12 ERA and 47 strikeouts to just 10 walks.

    DUFFY PICKING UP RIGHT WHERE HE LEFT OFF After a slow start in 2010, his first at Tennessee, Matt Duffy picked up the pace at the end of the year, leading the Big Orange with a .348 batting average in SEC play. The transfer from Vermont has picked up right where he left off as he is currently hitting at a .397 clip (23-for-58). A native of Milton, Mass., Duffy also has the most RBIs of any player in the SEC with 24 and ranks sec-ond on the UT squad with a .672 slugging percent-age and nine extra-base hits.

    BENNETT EN FUEGO After hitting 27 home runs as a senior at Farragut High School, UT freshman catcher/DH Ethan Bennett has wasted little time adjusting to the college game, as he leads the squad with four home runs and is hitting .448 (13-for-29) with 11 runs scored and 17 RBIs through his first nine games. After missing the first two weekends with a ham-string injury, Bennett has exploded onto the scene with four home runs in the last four games. During that stretch,he is hitting .533 (8-for-15) with 12 RBIs and six runs scored.

    QUARTET OF NEWCOMERS DEALING Much of Tennessee's success this season has been due to its much improved pitching staff. Leading the way has been a quartet of newcomers

    in junior Levi Dean, sophomore Zack Godley and freshmen Carter Watson and Dalton Saberhagen. The four hurlers have yielded just two earned runs in a combined 48.0 innings of work, paced by 13.2 frames from Watson and 16.0 from Dean. The four pitchers have allowed just 36 hits and 20 walks while striking out 44. Not to be outdone, there are three other pitchers in the UT stable with clean worksheets in returning hurlers Hunter Daniel, Matt Ramsey and Josh Allman.

    VOLS OFF AND RUNNING Prior to the season, there was quite a bit of talk about Tennessee implementing a new, more aggressive baserunning philosophy. The Vols have walked-the-walk so far in 2011 as they have already recorded an SEC leading 44 stolen bases in the first 16 games of the season. By comparison, it took UT 30 games to reach that mark in 2010 and never got there in 2009 when it had just 39 thefts in 55 games. The new baserunning program was on full dis-play on Feb. 27 against Canisius, when the Big Orange was a near-perfect 9-for-10 on the base-paths, including a pair of double steals and three thefts of third. The last time a Tennessee team had nine stolen bases in one game came against Morehead State on Feb. 8, 2003. UT had been successful in 20 straight stolen base attempts and 29 of 30 tries before having a runner thrown out on March 9. With a league-leading 15 thefts, senior Khayyan Norfork alone has as many or more stolen bases than four different SEC teams (Alabama, S. Carolina, Georgia, Auburn).

    SAVING THE DAY One of the most eye-popping stats for Tennessee this season has come from the back of the team's bullpen. After recording four saves over the course of the entire 2010 campaign, the Vols already have eight saves in the first 17 games this season, with six different pitchers doing the honors no less. Both Matt Ramsey and Zack Godley have two each, while T.J. Thornton, Levi Dean, Nick Williams and Drew Steckenrider each have one. With eight career saves, Ramsey is currently tied with Clark Odom (97-98) for the sixth most in Tennessee history.

    NEW FACES IN THE CROWD The Volunteers return 17 players, including seven starters, from last year's squad which finished with a record of 30-26. Joining them is a talented group of 14 newcomers, headlined by freshman Andrew Toles, a fourth-round pick by the Florida Marlins in the 2010 MLB First-Year Player Draft, and last year's Tennessee Gatorade Player of the Year, Ethan Bennett from Farragut High School. All 14 newcomers have already made their way into a game this season.

    NEW FACES ON THE COACHING STAFF In addition to the 14 new players, Tennessee also welcomes a pair of new coaches in assistant coach Ash Lawson and volunteer assistant Barrett Shaft. A former head coach at Tennessee Wesleyan, Lawson comes to Rocky Top from the San Diego Padres for whom he was a regional crosschecker. He was named the Padres' Scout of the Year in 2006. Shaft is in his first season as a volunteer assistant after serving as a manager for the team last year. He is a 2008 graduate of Western Carolina.

    HOMEGROWN TALENT PLENTIFUL ON TENNESSEE ROSTER Tennessees roster includes 12 players from the state of Tennessee (38.7 percent of the roster). Five Vols are from Knox County and one is from Sevier County (Seymour), while two others hail from West Tennessee and four are from Middle Tennessee. Four of the local players hail from Farragut High School, including senior Rob Catapano, junior Matt Ramsey and freshmen Ethan Bennett and Nick Williams. Bennett was named a 2010 Louisville Slugger High School All American, Tennessee Gatorade Player of the Year and TBCA Class AAA Player of the Year after setting a state single-season record with 27 home runs. He also hit .420 with 73 RBIs and scored 57 runs and set the national record for home runs in consecutive games, belting 16 during

    a 10-game stretch in April. Williams also played a big role in leading Farragut to three straight state titles with Bennett, going 19-0 with 137 strikeouts and an 0.85 ERA during his three seasons on the varsity squad.

    THE COLOR ORANGE On Sunday, Feb. 20, ESPN aired a feature-length documentary on former two-sport Tennessee star Condredge Holloway, entitled "The Color Orange." The documentary, produced and directed by country music star Kenny Chesney, detailed Holloway's collegiate career as the first black quar-terback in the SEC. In addition to his exploits on the gridiron, Holloway also served as the starting shortstop at UT, garnering first-team All-America recognition in 1975 after hitting .396 with 20 RBIs and two home runs.

    BASEBALL PARTICIPATES IN LIGHT THE NIGHT WALK, RAISES MORE THAN $5,000 FOR CANCER RESEARCH For the fourth straight year, the University of Tennessee baseball team participated in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Light the Night Walk Thursday evening at Circle Park on the UT campus. Since becoming involved with the event in 2007, the Volunteers have now helped to raise nearly $30,000, including over $5,000 this year, in support of research into the treatment and preven-tion of cancer.

    Starting this season, the NCAA has implemented a number of new rules, primarily a pitch clock and new bat standards.

    PITCH CLOCK After allowing the use of a pitch and between innings clock experimentally last year, the commit-tee voted to mandate the use of a timing device and implemented penalties for non-compliance. Current rules require pitchers to start their deliv-ery in no more than 20 seconds without runners on base. This rule remains and an umpire will be required to monitor and enforce this time limit. Additionally, in non-televised games, umpires will enforce a 90 second limit between innings. The committee recommended a time limit for televised games of 108 seconds, which the Southeastern Conference used experimentally during the 2010 season.

    BAT STANDARDS A new bat testing standard will be in place for NCAA baseball across all three Divisions. The goal is for non-wood bats that meet this new standard to

    perform similarly to wood bats in competition. NCAA baseball has a vast variety of teams and styles of play and a central part of the bat stan-dards is to ensure a balance between offense and defense. Known as the Ball-Bat Coefficient of Restitution (BBCOR), all bats used in NCAA competition for all divisions must meet this standard and display the appropriate certification mark. There is no opportu-nity for grandfathering old bats. The BBCOR formula provides a better mea-sure of a bats performance and allows the NCAA Baseball Rules Committee and bat-testing laborato-ries to better predict field performance based on lab tests. NCAA bat performance testing protocols are developed and managed by the Baseball Research Panel, which consists of a group of top scientists and researchers from NCAA institutions. The BBCOR standard, which was announced in September 2008, replaces the Ball Exit Speed Ratio standard. Full information on the BBCOR standard and other bat details is available at the following website: http://www.ncaa.org/baseballbats.

    149-126 lead, dating back to the first meeting between the two teams in 1915. Over the last 10 meetings, however, the Wildcats holds a 7-3 lead.

    LAST SEASON The Volunteers took two of three from UK in Knoxville last year. P.J. Polk led the Orange and White by hitting .500 with a pair of home runs and four RBIs in the series. Although the Orange and White got home runs from Polk and Matt Duffy on Friday night, Kentucky hit six longballs to power its way to a series-opening 12-8 win. Tennessee was able to even the series the next day, however, withstanding a Wildcat rally to score twice in the eighth on a two-RBI single by junior Josh Liles to earn an 8-6 triumph. On Sunday, the Vols turned the ball over to Gruver and he provided a gutsy effort on the mound, shrugging off a first-inning run to post five straight shutout frames and earn his third win of the season. The Vols had just six hits on the day, but used some aggressive base-running to make the most out of them. Khayyan Norfork was the catalyst for UT, going 1-for-3 with an RBI groundout and two stolen bases, including one of home plate to give the Orange and White a late insurance run.
