But Chism and the Vols (15-3, 3-1) are coming off a 15-point loss at Georgia and will be mad and hungry. Vandy will have to match their intensity. Ogilvy will have to show he's tough enough to handle Chism. He hasn't yet. If he wants to be an NBA player, he has to prove he can bang with guys like Chism.
