I would assume he wasn’t promised a starting role but if KE plans to run a 6-7 man rotation, either the sixth or seventh man is gonna see “starter minutes”. Particularly if we’re gonna go as positionless as it looks like we could be capable of.A Tennessee Basketball insider was on local sports talk this afternoon and said that he believes Gaines wanted to follow Des Oliver to ETSU, but that he wasnt guaranteed “starter minutes”, because ETSUs best returning player plays the same position. Fairly interesting considering the roster situation we have.
How did he get the name Ticket?
Well that’s a great origin story!!Davonte Gaines (0) G - CAREER HIGHS Points: 9 // vs. UNC Asheville, 11/5/19 Rebounds: 7 // vs. Arkansas, 2/11/20 Assists: 3 // vs. Jacksonville State,utsports.com
- Given the nickname "The Big Ticket" after recording 22 double-doubles, four triple-doubles and three quadruple-doubles during his senior year.
