  • Vols Get No. 3 Seed in NCAA Tournament, Will Open In Dallas

It brings a Volunteers squad that, to the surprise of most, appears to be peaking at the right time. The problem is the Vols are one of the youngest teams in the country, and we saw some of that youth spill over in the SEC Championship. "Really proud of them".

It's the 31st title in tournament history for the Wildcats, whose No. 4 seed in the event was the lowest in Calipari's nine seasons at the school. But I actually think this team could make some noise this tournament.

"We have so much respect for Arkansas", said Barnes. "And then I had to ask". We got swept in the series this season. But I come back to this: We needed to lose those games. Kyle Alexander, Grant Williams and James Daniel III each had 12 points. He finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds and likely could've had more.

Knox followed Gilgeous-Alexander with 18 points, Wenyen Gabriel had 12 and Quade Green chipped in with 10 points. "His teams always get better late in the year". "I know that it was a big game for us".

Peters led all scorers with 22 points while Turner paced three Volunteers in double figures with 15 as he added eight rebounds and four steals. Williams alone earned six offensive rebounds. As a team, Kentucky made half of their field goals (25-for-50) and shot 43.8 percent from beyond the arc. Kentucky jumped out to a 33-16 lead with 4:33 left in the 1st half.

Tennessee ranks 75th in three pointers allowed per game (20.2) while Arkansas ranks 264th (24.3).

"We started the game and dug ourselves a hole and, obviously, they were making some shots", Tennessee Coach Rick Barnes said. We're just ready, man.




Tennessee shared the SEC's regular-season title with No. 16 Auburn, doing so after being picked to finish next to last in the league during the preseason.

This marks Tennessee's first NCAA tournament appearance since 2014. Most famously, Butler reached the NCAA Championship Game in back-to-back seasons in 2010 and 2011. But in the sea of confetti and Kentucky blue there were lessons learned for the next tournament and its even higher stakes. Admiral Schofield posted another strong performance with 16 points, seven boards and two assists.

Kentucky guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who scored 19 points in Kentucky's win over Alabama Saturday, is looking forward to playing the Volunteers for the third time this year. The Tennessee Volunteers are -1 over the Kentucky Wildcats in SEC action on Sunday. The Vols outscored the Cats 14-3 midway through the second half and took a 57-55 lead.

Both teams will get a bid to the NCAA Tournament, with the victor receiving the league's automatic bid to the Big Dance.

A 3-point play by Quinndary Weatherspoon had the Bulldogs within 51-49 with 6:34 left.

NCAA Tournament pairings come out later tonight and suddenly United Kingdom, which is likely to be a No. 5 seed, looks like a tough out for any team in the tournament whether it has Jarred Vanderbilt back or not. Fourth-seeded Texas-Arlington, which upset Sun Belt regular-season champion Louisiana-Lafayette in the semifinals, fell to 21-13.

United Kingdom led by as many as 17 points today.
