TAMPA, Fla. – So, Tennessee battles to the brink of an SEC tournament championship and whom should the Vols find in their way today?
Not whom they expected.
It’s not LSU, the regular-season champions. Gone in a flurry of missed shots Saturday.
It’s not Kentucky, who has won more SEC tourney crowns (25) than the rest of the league combined. The Blue Mist evaporated Friday.
It’s not South Carolina, the Eastern Division co-champions. One and done.
Don’t know about you, but I didn’t see Mississippi State coming out of the top half of the bracket here at the St. Pete Times Forum.
