"The good thing is, because of what they've done throughout the whole season, their body of work, they get a chance to play again", Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said. This should be a great crowd for the title game of this tournament.

Freshman guard Darious Hall also added 11 points to go along with seven rebounds. Kevin Knox added 18, Gabriel 12 and Quade Green 10. "There's a lot of teams in the country that don't get that opportunity". So I think tomorrow will be that kind of game.
"It's hard to really flush that", Admiral Schofield said after scoring a team- high 22 points for Tennessee.
Grant Williams finished with 15 points and nine rebounds. Tennessee hit 20 of 60 shots from the field (33.3 percent), 5 of 20 shots from 3-point range (25.0 percent) and 17 of 28 shots from the foul line (60.7 percent). The final lead came on a mid-range jumper from Jordan Bowden that gave the Vols a one-point edge with 4:53 to go. "We were tougher and more locked in in the second half, but the first half, we weren't the team that beat them the first two times where we were locked in for 40 minutes, and that's what cost us the game".
"I wouldn't say we're trying to prove anything", Tennessee's Admiral Schofield said. "We weren't playing the way we were capable of; we just weren't locked in".
