NCAA Basketball: Florida at Tennessee Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

The Tennessee Volunteers had a successful weekend on the hardwood, hanging on to beat the Florida Gators. After dominating the entire game, in typical fashion, Tennessee proceeded to blow a big lead. Luckily, John Fulkerson was there to hit a miraculous three to maintain the lead.

The win moves Tennessee into a tie for the 7th seed in the SEC Tournament, which will be played in under two weeks. The Volunteers aren’t in their double-bye position that we’ve grown accustomed to seeing, meaning they’ll have some work to do on Thursday of the tournament.

Who could they play? 247Sports took a look at that, basically boiling it down to Missouri, Arkansas, Alabama or Texas A&M, depending on results from this week. We also can’t forget that Tennessee has a brutal week ahead, set to take a trip to Kentucky and then welcome Auburn to Knoxville on Saturday.

Tennessee and Kentucky will tip-off on Tuesday night at 8 p.m. ET.


Tennessee baseball put up another W on Sunday, blowing out George Washington to the tune of 10-0. Drew Gilbert paced the Volunteer offense with six hits during the series, scoring seven runs. Gilbert hit .545 on the weekend.

The Volunteers are now the 18th ranked team in the nation, per Baseball America.

Tennessee (12-0) is back in action on Tuesday evening against Longwood in Knoxville.


Darrell Taylor didn’t go through on-field drills on Saturday at the NFL Combine, leaving the spotlight on Daniel Bituli.

Bituli registered a 4.84 in the 40 yard dash. He then put up an above average 32 inch vertical leap, then ended with a 121 inch broad jump, which was good for 15th among linebackers.

Tennessee has two locks in Darrell Taylor and Jauan Jennings to be drafted. We’ll see if Bituli, Marquez Callaway or Dominick Wood-Anderson did enough to find their way into day three in April.
