Kentucky is attempting to win it’s 31st all time SEC championship. That is more than every other team in the conference combined! Tennessee is going for it’s 5th tournament championship.
At 7 pm the NCAA selection show will take place. UK is projected anywhere from a 3-6 seed. It will be interesting to see what region the Cats fall in and how the road to the Final Four will look.
Keys to Sunday’s Championship:
1. Keep that offense rolling. Not sure we will see 7 threes from Wenyen again. But it would be nice to have 20 assists like we did Saturday against Alabama. Keep turnovers under 10.
2. Keep the Vols off the glass. Tennessee out rebounded UK 69-62 in the two meetings this season. Without Jarred Vanderbilt, Kentucky has to gang rebound.
3. Have fun and enjoy the moment. This is where memories are made.
Kentucky – 78
Tennessee – 77
