Rick Barnes should have seen this one coming.

Tennessee’s coach walked back into the locker room to greet his players following their 75-53 win over Jacksonville State on Saturday but the scene was a bit too quiet after an easy victory.

Before Barnes had an opportunity to address his squad, they “attacked” him with a surprise celebration after the coach officially joined the 700 club with Saturday’s win.

Barnes now has a 700-367 overall record, which gives him a winning percentage of .657 in his college basketball career. His current Tennessee team improved to 8-3 on the season with the win over Jacksonville State.
