Welcome to the NCAA Tournament. The Tennessee Volunteers were awarded a No. 5 seed in this year’s tournament and are set to face the Oregon State Beavers, who landed a No. 12 seed. The Beavers ran through the Pac-12 Tournament last weekend, clinching an auto-bid.
Tennessee, 18-8 on the year, will be looking to build on the positive momentum generated last week. The Volunteers picked up two wins over Florida, and nearly knocked off Alabama on Saturday.
Now everything is on the line, and it’s time to see what this group is made of. The Volunteers were installed as a seven point favorite early in the week, and that number has only grown since.
The status of John Fulkerson is still unknown at this time, but we will pass along any updates that come along beforehand.
UPDATE: Fulky has been ruled out.
John Fulkerson is inactive for today’s game.
