Bracketology Update: Where Tennessee Stands Entering Back Half Of SEC Play

NCAAM 2/2 Recap: Marquette Takes Down Villanova As They Win Outright

Tennessee is 15-6 (6-3 SEC) as it heads to Columbia to face South Carolina to begin the second half of the SEC schedule.

The Vols are a lock to make the NCAA Tournament, but there’s still plenty of uncertainly about how high Tennessee will be seeded.

In ESPN Joe Lunardi’s most recent bracketology, the Vols fell to a six-seed after being a four-seed a week ago.

As a six-seed in the west region, Tennessee would face the winner of Wyoming and Creighton in the Round of 64. A first round win would pit the Vols against the winner of No. 3 Texas Tech and No. 14 Oakland.

Tennessee fell in a low scoring rock fight against the Red Raiders at Madison Square Garden in early December. In fact, Lunardi’s west region contains an abundance of former Tennessee opponents. Arizona in the two-seed in the region while Villanova is the five-seed.

According to Lunardi, the Vols are one of six SEC teams projected to make the NCAA Tournament field while Florida and Mississippi State are currently the first two teams out of the field.

Over at CBS, Bracketlogy expert Jerry Palm has Tennessee as a seven-seed in the south region. The Vols would face San Diego State in the opening round with a chance to play No. 2 Wisconsin with a win.

Auburn (No. 1 seed), LSU (No. 6 seed) and Texas Tech (No. 3 seed) also frequent the south region.

Like ESPN, Palm has six SEC teams currently in the field with Florida and Mississippi State in the “First Four Out”.
