Talking Points for 3/9/10:
- On last night's podcast, all of our guests picked Kentucky to win this week's SEC Tournament, but Will and I both picked Vanderbilt. Inside Tennessee's Randy Moore agrees with Will and
Ime. Tennessee doesn't have the revenge factor the players love to leverage this week as they've won their most recent games against each of the five teams in their half of the bracket.
- On the other hand, don't you just get the feeling that the Vols are well-positioned for a good run in the NCAA Tournament? Scotty Hopson has found consistency, both on offense and on defense; Bruce Pearl has found consistency in a lineup that's tall, athletic, and successful (6'10" Brian Williams, 6'9" Wayne Chism, 6'8" J.P. Prince, 6'7" Scotty Hopson, and 6'3" Bobby Maze); and the team has both solid guard play and senior leadership, the two elements most point to as vital to a deep post-season run. We'll see.
