Tennessee will play their first game in the 2019 NCAA Tournament on Friday, and they’ll do so as a No. 2 seed for only the third time in school history. No. 15 seed Colgate awaits the Vols in Columbus, Ohio for their match-up on Friday, and the two teams will likely tip-off at approximately 2:45 Eastern.
For most of this season, the Vols have been one of the top teams in college basketball. Tennessee completed the regular season wire-to-wire as a top-10 team in the AP Poll for the first time in school history, and they ascended to No. 1 in the polls for four-straight weeks.
