Here’s our list of games worth watching this week, specifically curated for fans of the Tennessee Volunteers.
No. 1 Gonzaga is back in action this evening. If the Vols can make it to the Final Four, the Bulldogs may be one of the other teams there, so it’s time to start paying attention to them again.
The SEC Tournament
The SEC Tournament tips off Wednesday, and we’ll be watching the Vanderbilt-Texas A&M game at 9:00 on the SEC Network, as it is one of two early games in the Vols’ bracket. Tip times for tournament games, by the way, are often dependent on what time the immediately-prior game finishes, so many of the tip times are approximate.
The winner of the Commodores-Aggies game takes on Mississippi State around 9:00 on Thursday, also on the SECN, and then the winner of that one advances to meet the Vols at around 9:00 on Friday. That one’s on the SECN, too.
Meanwhile, LSU and Kentucky both also play their first games on Friday. The Tigers are on ESPN at 1:00, and Kentucky is on the SECN at 7:00.
Here’s the full SEC Tournament Bracket.
The ACC Tournament
Why should Vols fans care about the ACC Tournament? Because the 1-seed line is currently crowded with ACC teams. Virginia, Duke, and North Carolina are all in action on Thursday. The Cavaliers tip at 12:30 on ESPN, North Carolina tips at 7:00 on ESPN, and Duke tips around 9:00. All games are on ESPN, and, like the SEC Tournament games, many of the tip times are approximate.
The ACC Tourney continues on Friday, but there are no pre-seeded teams scheduled for that day, so you’ll just have to watch the ACC Tournament bracket for updates.
Other games of interest
In addition to the SEC and ACC Tournament games, Houston, Michigan State, and Michigan all have games scheduled for this Friday. Houston plays at noon on ESPN2, Michigan State plays at 12:30 on BTN, and Michigan plays at 9:25 on BTN.
