Tennessee Volunteers need a win badly but face tall odds against Kentucky. They need to win for positioning purposes and a lot of that depends on how they perform on Tuesday. Leading the charge for Tennessee will be Jordan Bowden and John Fulkerson. Their offense needs to do better considering they have been struggling on offense this season. The defense has been a bright spot for Tennessee although they have their work cut out against the Wildcats.
Players to watch: J. Bowden G (29 GP 34.2 MIN 13.7 PTS 4 REB 2.6 AST 1 STL 0.3 BLK 1.6 TO 38.4 FG% 82.5 FT% 28.7 3PT%), J. Fulkerson F (29 GP 29.6 MIN 13.1 PTS 5.9 REB 1.3 AST 1.1 STL 0.9 BLK 1.9 TO 61.3 FG% 74 FT% 50 3PT%), Y. Pons G (29 GP 33.6 MIN 10.9 PTS 5.3 REB 1.1 AST 0.4 STL 2.4 BLK 1.6 TO 49.2 FG% 63.8 FT% 32.5 3PT%).
If the Wildcats stay the course, they should nab their ninth win Tuesday night. That would depend on how they perform on both ends of the floor. Immanuel Quickley will lead their offensive anew with help coming from guys like Tyrese Maxey. The defense of the Wildcats is doing well although they may want to tighten up against the Volunteers.
Players to watch: I. Quickley G (28 GP 33.2 MIN 16.3 PTS 4.3 REB 1.9 AST 0.9 STL 0.1 BLK 1.5 TO 41.6 FG% 92.2 FT% 42 3PT%), T.
