SC upends Tennessee in SEC Tournament quarterfinals

04 March 2018

His 29 points were two shy of his career high, which he set against Norfolk State in the Tigers' season opener.

"We knew that, but our game plan told us that she drove left 90 percent of the time, and I think she scored going left every time". "I thought Alexis did a great job".

"We missed a lot of bunnies, a lot of easy layups, wide open layups, jumpers that we normally make", Nared said. She was a gametime decision for Staley, and she came off the bench, mostly in short spurts, but her presence not only gave USC its prime scoring threat back, but also visibly seemed to lift the team's morale. Since then, the Vols have only made it to the finals twice (1991, 2009) and have failed to win at least one game in the tournament 16 times over their last 38 appearances since winning in 1979.

Auburn made 4 of 5 free throws while Tennessee went 20 of 24.

"They had confidence that their best player was back in the game for them", Tennessee assistant coach Bridgette Gordon said on the Lady Vol Network postgame show.

During the same speech, Trump praised Xi as the most powerful leader to rise to power in China during the past century. Maybe we'll have to give that a shot someday", Mr Trump said to cheers and applause from supporters.

All the Lady Vol momentum was taken away as Wilson - who didn't play in either regular-season matchups, both of which UT won - re-entered the game and used a three-point play, along with one from Herbet Harrigan to go back up double-digits on UT. "I hope she called glass". "I understand that (Tennessee) lost previous year in the first round, we didn't want to do that again, so I'm just happy".

Shots weren't falling in a 26.7-percent outing from the field, but in the third quarter they found some life, pulling within three before trailing by five heading into the last frame. They outrebounded Tennessee 50-43 and had a 46-36 scoring edge in the paint. Tennessee answered by scoring four quick points to cut the lead to 22-13 less than a minute later, but SC rallied back and was up by 16 at the 5:40 mark. Tennessee, however, could only convert that into 27 points. "You wonder how we lost the game", Warlick said. "And that was a big key before the game was just to defend all our turnovers, especially live-ball (ones)". The Bulldogs' lead grew to 11 on a layup by Tyree Crump before Tennessee guard Jordan Bone hit a 3-pointer from the left wing to bring the Vols back within 42-34 at halftime. In that time, Wilson disappeared into the locker room. "If I'm able to keep my man from getting past me and force my man to take a bad shot, it just gives me a little more confidence to go to the other end and knock down shots".

Wilson returned to the SC lineup on Friday night in the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament, coming off the bench to lead the second-seeded Gamecocks to a 73-62 win over seventh-seeded Tennessee at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.

"I'm starting to feel like myself again, starting to feel healthy", Brown said. "They kept telling me to shoot it, so I shot it".

Villanova: The Wildcats play the victor of the No. 7-10 game at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at MSG.
