We finish off the regular season with a visit to one of my least favorite destinations in the entire southeast... Knoxville, TN.
The Vols come in winners of 3 in a row including 2 impressive road wins at UF and South Carolina. We come in off a loss to Auburn at home. Tennessee is looking to improve their NCAA status... we're praying for a NIT invite.
- 46% FG
- 32% 3PT FG
- 68% FT
- Force 15 TO per game
- +3.9 rebound margin
Chism is the guy to stop inside. He's aggressive (read he has no problem going over the back and not having it called on him), physical, and a threat from outside. Maze and Tyler Smith have been streaky from outside while Prince has been rock solid with the mid-range game. their starting 5 tops our starting five at each position.
Prediction: Tennessee has steamrolled their last 2 conference opponents on the road... and with us coming off a heartbreaking loss Tuesday I see a recipe for disaster. The Vols need this game to keep them off the bubble. We're playing for pride. Vols big... 14 or so.
I'll probably miss the 1st half. It's on CBS.
Tipoff is noon EST (11AM CST).
