When he gave his farewell press conference after an unwanted exit from Texas, Rick Barnes predicted he'd be coaching again ''quicker than you probably think.'' It turns out Barnes already had a pretty good idea where he'd end up. Barnes had begun talking to Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart about the Volunteers' coaching vacancy Saturday, the day before his departure from Texas was announced. His move from one shade of orange to another became official Tuesday when Barnes was introduced as Tennessee's new men's basketball coach. Barnes succeeds Donnie Tyndall, who was fired Friday after going 16-16 in his lone season at Tennessee amid an NCAA investigation into his two-year tenure at Southern Mississippi.

An empty frame doorway is seen standing on the rubble of a destroyed building that was damaged in last summer's Israel-Hamas war, without a door painting, presumably painted by British street graffiti artist Banksy, east of Jebaliya, in the northern Gaza Strip, Tuesday, March 31, 2015. Artworks by the elusive British graffiti artist Banksy are typically sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars, but in the Gaza Strip a local painter has succeeded in purchasing a Banksy original for less than $200. The popular street artist is believed to have sneaked into Gaza in February, leaving behind four murals including one drawn on a metal door that depicted a Greek goddess cowering against the rubble of a destroyed house. The painting of the goddess Niobe, titled "Bomb Damage," was drawn on the lone remaining part of a two-story house belonging to the Dardouna family in Jabaliya, northern Gaza Strip.
