No. 20 Tennessee Basketball Welcomes Alabama State to Rocky Top for mid-week tilt

For the first time in 2019-20, the Tennessee Volunteers (3-0) have cracked the AP Top 25. But the Volunteers, ranked 20th in the nation, can’t rest on their laurels as an upset-minded Alabama State (0-3) will enter Thompson-Boling Arena with nothing to lose.

The Hornets, led by head coach Lewis Jackson, might be winless on the season thus far, but they would love nothing more than to go on the road and knock off a top-25 team.

ASU comes into tonight’s 6pm CT game having scored an average of 56.7 points per game, compared to Tennessee’s 78.3 points per game.

On the defensive side the Hornets are yielding an average of 79.3 points per game while the Volunteers are giving up 62.7 points per game.

Can Tennessee continue their undefeated streak, or will Alabama State earn their first win of the season?

Don’t Let Your Past Poison Your Future

Often times, we find ourselves dwelling on the past, dwelling on and worrying about things that are completely out of our control.

When we do that, we aren’t helping ourselves in the least bit. In fact, when we do that, we aren’t making our future any better, instead, we are making it worse. What has happened in the past no longer matters.

It’s a part of the past for a reason, personally, I’ve had a rough, life-threatening past but I refused to let that poison my future. We’ll get into that at a later date.

When we worry about things in the past, we end up tearing our own lives apart even when we don’t realize it. If we focused on our futures as much as we do our pasts, this world would be a better place.

It’s never too late to change your mindset, stop letting your past poison your future. Instead, let your past poise you for the future. Anything is possible. All you’ve got to do is believe in yourself.

Be the lion when all others are playing sheep. Don’t put your future in danger because of your past.
