HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The basketball season is starting across the country at every level.

UAH is getting ready to head to Knoxville to face Tennessee in an exhibition game Friday.

For Lennie Acuff's bunch, the experience is huge for the rest of the season.

“It's a great barometer for us. We'll know exactly where we are. They going to expose us for sure with their athleticism and size,” said Head Coach Lennie Acuff. “There's no way we can simulate that. So it's a great opportunity for our guys to play against high level competition, and for us to kind of access ourselves."

The Chargers are ranked 12th in the country in some Division Two Polls.
