Social Media Reacts to Tennessee Advancing to the Elite Eight With a Win Over Creighton

Tennessee SEC
Social Media reacts to Tennessee’s Sweet 16 game against Creighton on Friday night.

Tennessee advanced to the Elite Eight round of the 2024 NCAA Tournament on Friday with a sharp 82-75 win over Creighton in Detroit’s Little Caesars Arena. The Vols will now turn their attention to 1-seed Purdue with a spot in the Final Four on the line this Sunday afternoon.

With an SEC regular season championship under the belts, expectations were high for Tennessee entering the tournament despite the Vols having no Elite Eight appearances under head coach Rick Barnes. Tennessee powered their way through Saint Peter’s in the first round and kept an old skeleton in the closet with a win over Texas in the second round.

Tennessee used strong scoring nights from a trio of veterans to get the win over Creighton. Dalton Knecht led all Tennessee scorers with 24 while Zakai Zeigler added in 18 next to Josiah-Jordan James’ 17 points.

With a day of rest in between, Tennessee will be back on the court against Purdue in the Elite Eight on Sunday at 2:20 p.m. ET. Until then, though, check out some of the top reactions from the social media world after Tennessee’s win over Creighton in the Sweet 16 below.
