"It's championship season, and we set out to be in this position from the start of the season and we're here", Schofield said.
ST. LOUIS - All season long we've heard the narrative that this is the best the SEC has ever been. It was really good for us as a team. Abdul Ado had a team-high eight rebounds. "It's insane. I love it". Tennessee won that game, 94-61. You have to talk to your team and let them know we've got a 20-minute game left. Barnes wound up winning Coach of the Year honors as well. The Volunteers were able to shrink the Wildcats lead to one before Kentucky pulled away in the last minute. They've been here just two or three years tops. Two teams peaking. Very possibly the SEC's two best teams, now at least, peaking at the right time. But it was one of the players who stayed in the game that steadied Kentucky.
They still put up a fight, thanks primarily to Makol Mawien, the unheralded forward who scored a career-high 29 points.
P.J. Washington and Kentucky will test Tennessee for a third time Sunday. The Vols hadn't beaten Kentucky twice in the regular season since 1998-99.
"Kentucky is a totally different team than they were then", said Barnes. I've been watching them.
ACC Predictions: Can North Carolina get revenge vs. Duke? 3/9/18
After another Tar Heel turnover, Allen spun to the basket before being whistled for a player-control foul with 17.8 seconds left. Unlike the regular season matchup between these two teams , Carolina took care of the 'Cuse easily , defeating the Orange 78-59.
Kentucky got the kind of play in the final minutes of a tense game that had dominated the conversation this season. "I hope we get some home games in the NIT and can get to Madison Square Garden". These guys are growing up. Arkansas had three of its first five shots blocked, leaving coach Mike Anderson's team to play from behind throughout.
No. 21 Houston (26-6) vs.
Hot shooting propelled No. 2 seed Tennessee to an impressive 84-66 wire-to-wire victory over the sixth-seeded Arkansas in the semifinals of the SEC Tournament on Saturday afternoon at Scottrade Center.
"That might have been the difference", Tennessee radio analyst Bert Bertelkamp said.
"When I think about him, two years ago he was the difference in the game in Lexington". People perceive you differently maybe. Both Quinndary Weatherspoon and Kyle Alexander came down on Nick Weatherspoon, and, as seen in the photo above, Alexander's right foot landed on Nick Weatherspoon's chest/neck/head area.
'A Wrinkle in Time' director Ava DuVernay praises diversity on set
It's not often that we see purely straightforward films that are simply about vanquishing darkness with the light from within us. DuVernay tweeted a link to Coogler's essay, writing: "When your friend makes you tear up on opening day".
"We still want more".
As of Saturday morning, the Vols were projected to draw a #3 seed in the NCAA tournament by ESPN's Joe Lunardi.
"I wouldn't say we're trying to prove anything", Schofield said.
"So it's a big deal and we're really looking forward to competing with Cincinnati". But this team still has a chance to defeat more history in the NCAA Tournament.
Bone poured in 17 points in the first half, making all seven of his field goal attempts, including three from behind the arc. Sure, it's because of how red-hot they were from outside and their dominant inside game overall. The Volunteers, who came into the game averaging an offensive rebounding percentage of 32.3, had an absurd mark of 48.9 and had a free throw rate of 0.283 (above their season average of 0.275).
Tiger Woods watch: Midway through Friday at Valspar, one back of leaders
Stenson has played a bit since then, but not in larger tournaments. "So there are a few guys that can do it late in their career". He has not played at this event since 2012 (MC), but that is not something that worries us about Johnson.
Neither team has won the American tournament previously. We did it in the regular season, but that doesn't matter.
