It's a huge SEC opener as the Vols and Tigers collide in Baton Rouge. Check out our full game preview here and our full SEC Basketball preview here.

Tennessee enters SEC play with an RPI of 59; the Tigers are at 53. A three game UT win streak featuring an up-tempo style and more balanced scoring has allowed us to put aside the early season struggles in Cuonzo Martin's third year, and those struggles will be picked up again or perhaps discarded completely if the Vols turn in another good performance tonight.

The Vols have won five straight against LSU and both teams return most of the players featured in each of those games. This is your live thread for commenting on the action tonight if you're following along with the ESPN primetime telecast. It's a big one as SEC play begins, step one of 18 to an SEC Championship and a return to the dance floor.

Go Vols.
