(WVLT) -- Tennessee basketball has never seen an era quite like the "Ernie and Bernie Show." The stunning basketball exploits of Ernie Grunfeld and Bernard King captured the hearts and cheers of fans in Stokely Athletic Center in much the same way that Bruce Pearl has grabbed the loyalty of Vol supporters these days.
Saturday night at The Foundry, Grunfeld and King reflected on their glory days on the Knoxville hardwood, the day before Grunfeld's jersey is to be retired during the UT-Kentucky game. Former Voice of the Vols John Ward emceed the event, and Pearl and King both spoke about Grunfeld's contributions to Tennessee basketball.
Grunfeld will join King as the only Vols to have their numbers retired.
