Tennessee will meet Alabama in the semifinals of the SEC Men’s Basketball Tournament today in Nashville. The Crimson Tide are the regular season champions of the league, earning the top see in this week’s bracket.
Alabama crushed Mississippi State on Friday to move on, while Tennessee took care of business against Florida.
The Volunteers will be without John Fulkerson for today and the remainder of the SEC Tournament. Fulkerson took two elbows to the face and was taken to a local hospital last night. His status for next week’s NCAA Tournament is unknown.
Alabama got the better of Tennessee in the first meeting, shooting 50 percent from three-point range on their way to a 71-63 win. The Vols will have to make some shots today and defend the arc, but they have a big opportunity for a signature win heading into Selection Sunday.
