Tennessee is looking to avoid a three game losing streak this afternoon in Starkville, taking on the Mississippi State Bulldogs. The Vols, now sitting at 12-8 overall and 4-3 in the conference, are really getting into the teeth of their schedule now, set to face four straight potential NCAA Tournament teams.
If the Vols have any hope of climbing back into that race, they better make up some ground in this stretch of games. It starts today with the 13-7 Bulldogs, who also sit on the NCAA Tournament bubble. The Volunteers are looking to rebound (literally) from an embarrassing loss to Texas A&M on Tuesday.
Tennessee could be without freshman guard Josiah James today as he battles with a hip injury. That’s something we’ll be monitoring up until tip-off.
