The 2010–11 Tennessee Volunteers basketball team represented the University of Tennessee in the 2010–11 NCAA Division I men's basketball season. This was the sixth season for Bruce Pearl as the Volunteers' head coach. The team, a member of the Eastern Division of the Southeastern Conference, played its home games at Thompson-Boling Arena. They were the champions of the 2011 NIT Season Tip-Off. They finished the season 19–15, 8–8 in SEC play and lost in the quarterfinals of the 2011 SEC Men's Basketball Tournament to Florida. They received an at-large bid in the 2011 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament where they lost in the second round to Michigan.
