Razorbacks Fall To Tennessee in SEC Semifinals, 84-66

Those first two games in the Southeastern Conference tournament mattered for the second-seeded Volunteers, but Sunday's game really mattered to a team looking to become the first from UT to win the conference tournament championship since 1979.

However, the Vols are likely going to be a No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament, so there's still a lot for coach Rick Barnes's squad to play for. "And in order for us to be an effective team, I have to get to my spots and make people react off the plays so I can get my teammates open". "It's not hitting me yet". As a team, Kentucky is scoring 76.7 points per game on 46.9% shooting from the field, 35.8% from behind the arc and 69.3% from the foul line this season. "That's what cost us", Macon concluded, without answering.

"Shots were falling", sophomore guard Jordan Bone said.

Tennessee started strong in the second half.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the way for United Kingdom with a game-high 29 points.

"I thought they were fresher, I thought they were crisper than we were", Arkansas Coach Mike Anderson said. "They looked like - and John does such a great job", Barnes said.

Arkansas was playing its third game in three days after beating SC 69-64 and No. 23 Florida 80-72.

The Tennessee Volunteers survived late game heroics by Mississippi State guard Lamar Peters and then watched a potential game winning Bulldogs three go long before they could claim a 62-59 win in Friday night's SEC Tournament quarterfinals. "But I love what took place in the second half". "We usually come with a lot of energy". "They dug down real deep after being down 19 at halftime".

Jordan Bone's 17 first-half points provided the spark the Vols needed to break away from the Razorbacks; Tennessee never trailed in the game. Star Kevin Knox (18 and 7 Sunday) was as assertive as we've seen him all season. The two teams split their regular-season series: Each won at home.

"We didn't have any energy today", Macon said.

"I was happy that he's moving well, talking and asked about the score of the game". He was prone on the court when play came back his way and Tennessee's Kyle Alexander accidentally came down in the area of his head when contesting a layup.

The veteran big man is in the midst of a MVP-caliber season, averaging 28.1 points, 11.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.3 blocks and 1.5 steals over 36.5 minutes per game. SEC Player of the Year Grant Williams added 12 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Jaylen Barford added 14, while Anton Beard posted 11. Freshman forward Darious Hall had 11 points and 7 rebounds off the bench, and freshman forward Daniel Gafford had 8 points and 5 rebounds.

"I just think starting off the game we were really aggressive", Bone said. "They got real hot, and we couldn't do anything about it in the first half". That's why we are so unsafe and the way we're playing defense right now is fantastic.

The 2018 SEC Championship features the Tennessee Volunteers going for a season sweep of the Kentucky Wildcats.
