Tennessee earned an at-large bid after losing the SEC Tournament Final to Kentucky earlier Sunday. The Vols were outstanding, as they finished 25-7 and were co-regular season champions with the Auburn Tigers. Rick Barnes did great work and earned Coach of the Year honors for his efforts. Now, though, SEC Player of the Year Grant Williams and his teammates will be looking for bigger and better things.
The Vols will begin the NCAA Tournament as a 3 seed in the South Region, a region headed by the Virginia Cavaliers and Cincinnati Bearcats. They will play the Wright State Raiders in the Round of 64 in Dallas, Texas at the American Airlines Center. That game will take place on Thursday.
