Tennessee is the highest ranked team in the SEC, according to KenPom, at #7 overall. Yet, UT is two games behind Auburn and not often talked about in the conversation for a one-seed.
It isn’t often talked about along with teams that surround it in the KenPom rankings: Kansas, Xavier, Michigan State, etc.
Yet the five Tennessee losses are impressive: single-digits against ‘Nova and North Carolina, two points at Arkansas, four points at Missouri and ten points against conference-leading Auburn.
A lot of good Tennessee teams in years passed haven’t panned out. A lot of Rick Barnes teams of the past have failed to meet expectations. The pressure will be on this team when it finds itself as a two or three seed in the NCAA Tournament.
But this is a big game for Tennessee’s potential seeding. The same can be said about Kentucky, which got a huge win at West Virginia last week before dropping its game over the weekend at Mizzou.
That snapped a three-game winning streak and now Big Blue doesn’t have any chance to ease back into things.
Kevin Knox and company host this game, which they better win because tough road games at Texas A&M and at Auburn linger afterward.
UK is all the way down at #30 at KenPom. The ‘Cats are fairly balanced, the offense close to 50 and the defense in the top-25.
The three-point shooting will be important in this game because Tennessee can body up, physically, with UK inside. Neither team loves the outside shot but they’re both going to have to shoot them. Whoever chucks it better should win.
