3seed Vols rally to knock off 2seed UK in the SEC semis. That'll drop UK to a 2seed in the South or Midwest more than likely and probably sends the Vols to a 1seed if they can finish the job tomorrow. 

Here's the boxscore: https://t.co/qjrvZUoLfj

 

Auburn vs Tennessee for the SEC Final like "everyone" predicted 😂

6seed Oregon is about to steal a bid! 1seed Washington is playing lethargic in this 2nd half in this Pac12 Final. 

 

 

*EDIT: Oregon smacks UW by 20. Pac12 might get 3 teams in after looking like a 1bid league. Arizona State will wait to see.

3seed Vols getting smoked by 5seed Auburn right now in the SEC Final.

 

 

 

*EDIT: 3seed Vols get smacked by 20 by the 5seed Auburn Tigers. Auburn costs Tennessee a share of the regular season title and now the SEC Tournament title. 

 

This is funny below: 

 

From Pat Forde: What a weekend for SEC commish Sankey. On Friday he gave the regular-season trophy to LSU while its coach was home on suspension. On Sunday he gave the tournament trophy to Bruce Pearl, who has Chuck Person copping a plea and a current assistant accused of taking bribes @ Penn.

Do you think Del Conte will pull the trigger on Smart?

No, if Shaka doesn’t take another job he’ll get his 5th year. His buyout is too much and Del Conte would rather hire a new coach to build momentum for the opening of the new arena.

Keeping an eye on the Wake Forest coaching situation. Most feel like if they were to fire their current coach then Shaka Smart could be the top candidate for their new coach. 

that would be utterly shocking...I could see them bringing Bobby Knight out of retirement before taking the SS off our hands...that would be whacko

Shaka is still a very popular coach despite his 4 years at Texas. If buyouts can be worked out he’ll have many suitors.

SFA's TJ Holyfield is transferring. Early rumor has Illinois as the landing spot, as Holyfield could reunite with Brad Underwood.

Transferring is no surprise. Next year is going to be worse than this year in Nacogdoches. Would be fun to see him at Illinois. That team could be a tournament lock caliber team next year already. Adding someone with the experience and talent of Holyfield will only help.

We are currently at six leaving, just three are graduating...I think we lose one more to transfer (Hughes). The new PG we got seems legit, but we need more depth and a JUCO post to step in and play immediately. Also looks like we may be a former A&M signee in Chris Harris. 

I'm not completely sold on next year being a complete turnaround, but I don't expect as bad as this year. If so then Keller needs his walking papers...

Alabama’s season is over. Final score: 8seed Norfolk State 80, 1seed Alabama 79. https://t.co/syA8jgPp6p

 

Bama was the overall 1seed in the NIT. Avery Johnson will probably get canned now. 

 

 

From Ken Pomeroy:

Norfolk State has the biggest upset by point spread in NCAA history (2012, Missouri) and maybe* the biggest upset by point spread in NIT history (2019, Alabama)

*I’m too lazy to track down historical NIT point spreads
