Vols Searching For First SEC Tournament Title Since 1979


The Vols basketball team continues to enjoy plenty of rest for the SEC Tournament with their double-bye. They don’t hit the floor until Friday night in Nashville. The team arrived in the Music City Thursday and got in a workout at Lipscomb University. Tennessee hopes to double down with their double bye and capture their first SEC tournament title since 1979.

Said head coach Rick Barnes:”I think anytime you play, you want to win the title. You want to win championships. I don’t think there’s any question any team wants to do that. The main thing is when you’re done. You’ve got to know that you have given it your best shot.”
Added forward Grant Williams:”I want it so badly. I always wanted it because 1979 I’ve had that date in my head the last time that we won it. So it’s something that would mean a lot to me.”
