Here’s our list of games worth watching this weekend, specifically curated for fans of the Tennessee Volunteers.
Today’s the last day of the SEC regular
If Tennessee wins, the game at 2:00 on CBS between Kentucky and Florida won’t matter, as the Wildcats will still be at least one game behind regardless of anything else. If the Vols lose, however, we’ll not only want Kentucky to lose as well, we’ll need them to. You don’t have to actually choke out the words, “Go Gators,” but you do want those guys to win today.
And then at 8:30 tonight on the SEC Network, winless (in the conference) Vanderbilt goes to an LSU team playing without their suspended head coach. It’s extremely unlikely, but we want the Tigers to lose. Hey, this is college basketball, where crazy things can happen.
Of course, the SEC regular season championship isn’t the only thing of importance today, as the Vols are also jockeying for a 1-seed in the NCAA Tournament.
On that front, the biggest game to watch today is the showdown between Duke and North Carolina at 6:00 on ESPN. In case you’re wondering, yes, we have an opinion on who Vols fans should root for in the Blue Devils-Tar Heels game.
Also important is the Michigan-Michigan State game at 8:00 on ESPN. Those two teams are more remote threats, but they could become factors under certain circumstances.
Tomorrow, Houston (which remains No. 6 in the all-important NET Rankings) could have its hands full with Cincinnati. That game is on at noon on CBS.
