Hogs on the Bone For Vols in SEC Semi-Finals

Hogs on the Bone For Vols in SEC Semi-Finals

Everybody gives more effort because we know we have a shot at getting back into it. "We came here to win. We were chasing balls down, and we needed it".

United Kingdom took care of business in the tournament final Sunday from St. Louis, beating Tennessee 77-72. PJ Washington leads in rebounds with 5.4 while Gilgeous-Alexander tops in assists with 4.9 per game. Freshman guard Darious Hall also added 11 points to go along with seven rebounds. Kevin Knox added 18 points and Quade Green had 10 for the Wildcats. "His teams always get better late in the year. So I think it will be that kind of game".

Admiral Schofield led Tennessee with 22 points and 10 rebounds, but the Vols only shot 37 percent from the field and missed 17 threes.

Grant Williams finished with 15 points and nine rebounds.

"They start the second half and make another run at us, and I've got to call a time-out right before the 16- minute mark, and this team responded", Kentucky coach John Calipari said. Kentucky jumped out to a 33-16 lead with 4:33 left in the 1st half. The Tennessee Volunteers are averaging 74.2 points on 43.9 percent shooting and allowing 66.4 points on 41 percent shooting.

"I love the fact that we can go on the road and lose a game and not go to the play-in game in Dayton", Calipari said. "We weren't playing the way we were capable of; we just weren't locked in".

Tennessee shared the SEC's regular-season title with No. 16 Auburn, doing so after being picked to finish next to last in the league during the preseason. We were really trying to do this to get ready for the NCAA Tournament. The school has reached the championship game 10 times, tied for the third-most appearances in the conference, and it lost to Mississippi State in its most recent title game in 2009. The Vols beat the Yellowjackets 77-70 on December 3 in Atlanta, and the Raiders beat Georgia Tech 85-81 in Atlanta on December 22. Tennessee will face the victor of the game between those two on Saturday. Clark finished with 20 points.

This is the third time that United Kingdom has won at least four consecutive SEC Tournament championships - United Kingdom won seven in a row from 1944-50 and four straight from 1992-95. The Tennessee Volunteers are shooting 38.4 percent from beyond the arc and 75.6 percent from the free throw line.

Even with the disappointment of not being able to break a 39-year drought, the Vols have plenty left on their plate as they prepare for their first NCAA Tournament trip in three years. An 8-0 run pulled the Razorbacks within 11 points with 15:24 remaining in the game. The junior had 13 points during the last 3:17 of playing in the frame, including three straight threes. The Vols beat Kentucky again on February 6 in Lexington, squeaking out a 61-59 win.
