Vols outlast Mississippi State for berth in SEC semifinals

Vols know UK will be “hungry to beat us”

The first and last run belonged to Kentucky.

Although a No. 4 seed, the Wildcats made seven of eight free throws in the final 45 seconds to secure their 12th straight league tournament victory, giving Kentucky a dose of momentum going into the NCAA Tournament.

Tennessee won 13 SEC games and shared the regular season championship with Auburn, but comes to the gateway city this weekend looking for the ultimate tiebreaker: an SEC Tournament Championship.

I still think Tennessee is the team I trust most in the SEC, but there's just something about Kentucky in the conference tournament. "We set out to do something special this year and we had an opportunity, and we couldn't take advantage of it". That's what we're playing for.

Barnes earned SEC Coach of the Year. The Wildcats led by as many as 17 points in the first half, shooting 50% from deep.

Midway through the half, United Kingdom tacked on a 7-0 run to make the lead 27-12.

The incident happened almost a decade before Rosa Parks famously refused to give up her seat on a segregated bus in Alabama. Desmond became famous because of a business trip made her 71 years ago. "It's lovely ", she told an audience in Halifax.

A missed free throw by Knox found its way to Gabriel, who is rapidly becoming an icon after his 7-for-7 three-point shooting performance on Saturday. The Cats then went inside to Washington and he converted his free throws to put the Wildcats back on top. Gabriel's shot rimmed out, but Sacha Killeya-Jones, with the play of the game, grabbed the offensive board and slammed the ball back for 2 points. He had 17 points and eight rebounds in the half to pace all players. "The biggest thing is it starts with him, and he really helped us out tonight". That win marked their fifth in a row for a team entering March Madness firing on all cylinders. The sophomore scored 17 of his points in the first half, during which the Volunteers hit 11 of their first 12 shots and 19 of 25 (76 percent) overall while building a 48-29 halftime lead. Tennessee answered with a run of its own.

All in all, it's a Kentucky group that appears primed for next week's NCAA Tournament.

That continued after the break as Jordan Bone quickly tied the game with a mid-range jumper.

Tennessee's Jordan Bone said on Saturday that "we're trying to ideal, so we just have to do that and get ready for a team that's hungry to beat us". "It gets everybody hype and it turns us up. We still want more". "You just don't know who is going to step up any night". Close doesn't count when it comes to playing Kentucky. The Vols hadn't beaten Kentucky twice in the regular season since 1998-99.

Arkansas now awaits its selection into the NCAA Tournament, as the Razorbacks will find out its seeding on Selection Sunday. "They play really hard, have a great system, great coach". "His teams always get better late in the year". Win or lose that game, it's a different basketball tournament next week.
