    Tennessee handled business against Mississippi State on Friday night in the SEC Tournament quarterfinals, and there was plenty to talk about after the victory.

    The No. 3 seeded Vols (28-4, 15-3 SEC) beat the No. 6 seeded Bulldogs (23-10, 10-8 SEC) by a score of 83-76 on Friday night to advance to the semifinals of the SEC Tournament. Admiral Schofield led the Vols with 20 points and seven rebounds, and both Jordan Bone and Kyle Alexander almost finished with double-doubles. Bone totaled 14 points and nine assists while Alexander had 16 points and nine rebounds.

    After the game, Bone was asked about his performance and what a fan of his says when he’s “in the zone” in games:

    Admiral Schofield was the leading scorer for the Vols, and he had the biggest highlight of the game and possibly the year for Tennessee. Schofield slammed home a monstrous dunk over Mississippi State’s Robert Woodard, and he watched the replay of his own dunk after the game:

    Jordan Bowden and Derrick Walker were both highly impressed by Admiral’s dunk, too:

    Schofield also talked about Kyle Alexander picking up a technical in the second half against the Bulldogs, the first of his career at Tennessee:

    Lamonte Turner only attempted one three-pointer against Mississippi State and finished with just five points. But the redshirt junior guard dished out eight assists in the game, one shy of his career-high he set last year in UT’s victory over Wright State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Turner said his focus on Friday night was on defense and helping his team find a way to win:

    Grant Williams finished Friday’s game with 16 points and just four rebounds in 26 minutes of play. He got in foul trouble and ended up fouling out late in the second half. He was asked about the Vols’ upcoming game against Kentucky and the return of Wildcats’ big man Reid Travis:
