Tennessee Volunteers prospects
Tennessee has had a bumpy season full of ups and downs. They’ve had some really solid efforts where they show flashes of brilliance, and some head-scratching results. They’ve got the upside to potentially make a real run, but also the low floor that could see them get upset by Oregon State in the first round. On the one hand they rank fourth in defensive efficiency according to Kenpom, on the other they don’t have very much shooting. On the one hand they’re deep with seven guys averaging at least eight points per game, on the other each of their two top scorers are freshmen. This will be a very interesting team to watch.
