Auburn Analysis: Dalton Knecht is leading this team

Dalton Knecht, a senior guard, gives the Volunteers energy. In his first season at Tennessee, the transfer from Northern Colorado has started all 27 games. He is averaging 20.1 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists in 29.5 minutes of play. He just finished with a 24-point and 7-rebound performance in an 86-51 victory over Texas A&M. On February 20, he scored 17 points and pulled down 10 rebounds to record a double-double against Missouri. Jonas Aidoo, a junior forward, has also been on fire lately. With 18 points and 14 rebounds in the victory over Texas A&M on Saturday, he recorded a double-double.


Tennessee Analysis: Currently won 4 games in a row

Following a devastating defeat on February 10, the Volunteers (11-3 SEC record) have won 4 consecutive matches. Their most recent win, 86-51, came as payback against Texas A&M. They rank among the top 10 teams in the country. Although currently slated for a #2 seed, Tennessee is poised to snag a #1 seed. The Volunteers’ defense, for whatever reason, is competitive with Auburn’s. At 38.0%, they permit the 2nd-lowest shooting percentage in the country. Tennessee’s opponents score 66.6 points on average, but only 59.7 in Knoxville. It’s a problem because they let opponents 21.0 free throw attempts every game. But Tennessee also stops opponents from shooting 30.7% from outside the arc. They are +2.8 in turnovers and +4.2 in rebounding.
