South Carolina vs Tennessee Prediction

Tennessee, successful peculiar connected its location court, has looked borderline unstoppable. The mode successful which they dismantled Alabama, rated seventh astatine KenPom astatine nan time, was terrifying. Knecht, a existent go-to scorer, provides nan nonstop portion nan squad was missing past season, erstwhile they went 25-11 and earned a #4 seed successful nan NCAA Tournament.

South Carolina is not a pushover. They play astatine a lethargic gait and person kept 16 of 20 opponents nether 70 points this season. They are going to make each effort to move this crippled into a plodding, protect struggle – everything they grounded to do against Alabama while getting blown retired 74-47.

I don’t emotion either broadside of this spread, but I do for illustration nan first-half nether for South Carolina astatine 27.5 points.
