Three straight victories
The win gives the Vols three straight victories and seven wins in it's last eight games. The win also improves the Vols to 9-6 in conference play; good for a share of thirdplace with Alabama and only one game behind Florida and Vanderbilt for second.
The general consensus is the Vols are an NIT team, but following the game, coach Cuonzo Martin made it clear in interviews that he thinks the Vols are an NCAA tournament team. If the Vols close the season with a victory and Florida loses to Kentucky Sunday, Cuonzo and the Vols will finish 2nd in the SEC and at the very least, give the selection committee something to think about.
The Vols will look to keep their NCAA tourney hopes alive and continue their winning ways Saturday against Vanderbilt (21-9, 10-5) at Thompson-Boling Arena. The tip is set for 4 p.m.
