Tennessee vs Miss St

Wow…just wow. An overall amazing performance by the Vols! Start was a little slow, but we got it together in the middle. Williams got into foul trouble early and, well that’s ok, he wasn’t really needed, let him rest up for Kentucky. Tennessee went the whole first half with not even going to the free throw line, crazy, but I don’t care how many free throws we have, all that matters is that W! Admiral Schofield with a top notch game, 20 points, and the dunk of the year! Very good to see Alexander finally get it together with 9 rebounds and 16 points. Turner was still ice cold, 2 rebounds and only 5 points, 8 assist did help out. Bowden came off the bench and got 10 points, which was great, especially with Williams early foul trouble.

Now tomorrow with rubber match with Kentucky. As we all know, UK kicked our behind earlier in Rupp, but Tennessee got their revenge in Knoxville, huge game in a neutral site. Tennessee hasn’t won the SEC tournament since 1976, In my mind who ever wins tomorrow will win the championship. Florida plays Auburn in the early game for the championship. A win by Florida will be a better matchup for the Vols, Auburn is a very dangerous team and it will be a rough win, Tennessee played Florida twice and handled that very easy. I hope to see Tennessee in the the championship and hope to get that number 1 seed!

Tennessee vs Miss St preview

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.
