That percentage just narrowly missed Tennessee's season-high of 57.5 percent at SC on January 20.
Rather, trying to win the Volunteers' first tournament championship in nearly 40 years is always where the Tennessee junior expected to be - even when the Rocky Top faithful were disappointed by a preseason pick of 13th in the SEC.
A frustrating regular season didn't do anything to deter Kentucky from continuing its dominance in the SEC tournament, as it earned a 77-72 victory over Tennessee in Sunday's championship game. Kentucky (23-10) defeated Alabama 86-63 in the first semifinal contest. Since that losing streak, the Wildcats have won 6 out of their last 7 games, and appear to be one of the best teams in college basketball.
Tennessee will find out its NCAA tournament seeding at 6 p.m. during the NCAA Selection Show.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the way for United Kingdom with a game-high 29 points.
But there's no doubt that Williams will need to play well in this one for Tennessee to win. The most recent was a close 61-59 defeat where the Wildcats failed to score 60 points in a game for the only time this season. "Really proud of them". "That will be a fun game". Regardless of Sunday's result, Tennessee already had a spot in next week's NCAA Tournament.

"He is just silky smooth and at the end of games, he wants the ball". Kentucky freshmen Wenynen Gabriel and the Wildcats know the feeling. 'Does everybody get to go to the SEC Tournament?' I wasn't even sure we'd get here.
Megan Calipari locked it up, threw away the key and is already driving that thing to wherever region Kentucky gets seeded into tonight. Kevin Knox added 18 points and Quade Green had 10 for the Wildcats.
The Chicago native, who notably played his collegiate basketball at Kentucky, was originally selected by New Orleans with the first overall pick of the 2012 NBA Draft.
"Wight State is kind of a unique, throw-back team", said Oakland coach Greg Kampe, whose Golden Grizzles lost to the Raiders twice this season. "I just feel like this is going to be motivation heading into the tournament". That's what you have to understand. "But it was our defense that was really good. Then we had a couple of ill-advised possessions on the offensive end".
Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said the first two games between the two teams won't matter in the league finale.
What a difference a day was, although they did manage to take the lead on occasions. "I told you a few weeks ago not to count Kentucky out when they had some struggles. They looked like - and John does such a great job", Barnes said. I seriously doubt any of them would know who Reggie Johnson, Gary Carter or Dale Ellis was. These guys are growing up.
