Vols Anxious to End Double Bye and Start SEC Tournament Play
The SEC tournament tipped off on Wednesday in St. Louis, but the second seeded Vols don’t play until Friday, leaving players and coaches wondering if the double bye is a good thing.
Said forward Admiral Schofield:”I don’t like it. I’d rather be playing right now. You know it’s a blessing. Get the double bye. Get rest and get your bodies ready.”
Said head coach Rick Barnes:”I can remember the play-in game. We win. The next day you go out, and you feel like we have a game under our belt. We’re still rolling. And the fact is, anybody in this league right now that’s left in this tournament can win this tournament.”
Tennessee will face Mississippi State in the quarterfinals with the tip-off set for 7pm.
