There was a minor scuffle late in Tennesseea€™s win over Memphis on Saturday. In the aftermath of it, Tigers coach Penny Hardaway had some harsh words for his Volunteer counterpart, Rick Barnes.

a€œI dona€™t know who Rick Barnes thinks I am but Ia€™m not a dude thata€™s going to mess around about anything. I just call it like I see it,a€ Hardaway said, per Drew Hill, Memphis Commercial Appeal. a€œNo matter how hea€™s trying to make things seem, and I think ita€™s kind of low class how hea€™s trying to downgrade my guys for flopping and all that. Man, come on, give me a break.a€

Barnes had ripped the Memphis players for flopping during the game. Hardaway defended it by noting that Tennessee is a bigger, physical team, and that he had to find ways to counteract that.
