Tennessee Vols basketball coach Rick Barnes in Greeneville

Greeneville — The 15th annual champions dinner for the boys & girls club of Greeneville and Greene co. took place tonight and  University of Tennessee head coach Rick Barnes was the keynote speaker

This year will be Barnes first year with the Vols, but before this job he oversaw a prolific 17 year run at Texas that included 16 trips to the NCAA tournament.

The champions dinner is known for it’s dynamic speakers who help the organization that serves many children annually from throughout Greeneville & Greene county with a variety of after-school, summer and youth sports programs.

Barnes did tell us that point guard Lamonte Turner who was ruled ineligible yesterday “will be missed this season, but he gets to practice so that helps out more than what people may see.”
