The Vols take on Mississippi St on the 15th, Miss St is coming off a dominating performance against Texas A&M with an 80-54 win. Tennessee played Miss St once this season, with the Vols winning 71-54. The Vols key to winning this game will come down to their 6th man, the last few games have been rough to say the least, in the loss to Auburn, Alexander had 4 points in 24 min, Turner had 5 points in 35 min, and 1-8 in 3 pointers. Jordan Bone had a decent game at 17 points in 37 min, but only 2-8 from 3 points. Tennessee only lost by 4 points so Turner and Bone need to get a better look from behind the arch or don’t take the shot. Bowden from the bench got 16 points in 31 min, 3-7 from 3 point range. Miss St has a very good depth from the bench, with 4 strong players and 3 more with good experience if needed. Need to limit Peters and Carters in their 3 point shooting, Weatherspoon is the best player on the Bulldogs, average 18.5 points, but Tennessee has the 2 time SEC player of the year in Grant Williams. Averaging 19.3 points and 7.7 rebounds, strong inside and can shoot from behind the arch when needed, and when he goes to the line, he don’t miss. Should be a good game, I’m going with my Vols winning 75-60, going on to play the winner of Alabama and Kentucky.
