Vol hoopsters going door-to-door for fans

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Most people would not expect to open their front door and find a Tennessee men's basketball player standing there with season tickets in their hand. But that is exactly what happened to a couple of lucky UT basketball fans on Tuesday.

Junior forward Dwight Miller surprised a pair of fans by hand delivering their season tickets. The first stop was to a home in West Knoxville where, fittingly, they have a dog named Tee Martin.

The second trip took Miller to Postnet in Cedar Bluff where he made Gary and Joani Leed very happy. "That was just absolutely incredible. Our blood just runs so orange. And here a player comes in to hand deliver our tickets. What better way to start the season," said an excited Joani.

Miller was pleased he could bring smiles to some fans. And you can expect it to happen again in the future says Miller, "I don't think they were expecting it, which made it a lot better. Hey we look forward to doing it again. It could be you next time so be, be ready."
