KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee may be starting its customary late-season surge a little earlier than usual.

The Vols are 35-9 at home and 7-17 in true road games during Martin's three-year coaching tenure. In the Vols' only two games on an opposing team's home floor this season, they fell 67-63 at Xavier and 70-61 to No. 6 Wichita State.
