SEC Tournament Final: Kentucky survives Tennessee rally to win conference championship

SEC Tournament Final: Kentucky survives Tennessee rally to win conference championship

Possession-by-possession requirement of poise and execution.

Kentucky will learn its NCAA Tournament first round opponent and location Sunday evening during the annual NCAA Selection Show.

UK's record improved to 24-10.

The second-seeded Volunteers (24-7) led almost the entire game, but the Bulldogs (22-11) had an opportunity to take the lead in the final 10 seconds.

Knox followed Gilgeous-Alexander with 18 points, Wenyen Gabriel had 12 and Quade Green chipped in with 10 points. Instead, the Volunteers shared the regular-season SEC title with Auburn and are headed back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2014.

Kevin Knox, Kentucky. He averaged 14.7 points and six rebounds during the tournament.

Heady-and-ready plays that took advantage of sudden opportunities helped Kentucky down the stretch.

UT missed the second of two free throws to set up the potential game-winner.

United Kingdom went to the locker room ahead 36-31. Assists - Arkansas 8 (Beard 4), Tennessee 16 (Williams 4, Bone 4, Turner 4). United Kingdom drew back in front by as many as 9 after Green converted on 2 free throws and Knox put in a lay up courtesy of a PJ Washington steal.

Play was paused for about 10 minutes as trainers and medical staff assisted Weatherspoon. For instance, United Kingdom made seven of eight free throws in the final 57.6 seconds.

Last year, China imported 3.2 million tons of USA coal, worth about $420 million and almost five times the amount it took in 2016. Japan, the United States's top economic and military ally in Asia, was next in line.

Kentucky has picked up wins over Georgia and Alabama this weekend to reach the SEC final.

The Tennessee Volunteers enter the tournament winning 12 of their last 15 games and just losing to the Kentucky Wildcats in the SEC Championship. Tennessee hit 20 of 60 shots from the field (33.3 percent), 5 of 20 shots from 3-point range (25.0 percent) and 17 of 28 shots from the foul line (60.7 percent).

John Calipari kept telling anyone who would listen that this group of Kentucky freshmen just needed a little more time than most to figure things out. That included a pair of three-pointers.

Schofield would leave the game late in the second half however. Gilgeous-Alexander put through two free throws with two seconds left on the clock to seal the victory for the Kentucky basketball team. The final lead came on a mid-range jumper from Jordan Bowden that gave the Vols a one-point edge with 4:53 to go.

Thereafter Schofield reminded everyone that the competition had not been completed. The Wright State Raiders are averaging 72.1 points on 43.6 percent shooting and allowing 65.7 points on 41.4 percent shooting. Bone's fast-break floater tied it at 38-38 with 17:25 left.

Daryl Macon scored 19 points to lead the sixth-seeded Razorbacks, who had won eight of their previous 10 games.

That faith was shaken when the Wildcats lost four consecutive games last month.

Then it was Tennessee's turn to call timeout.

"Sacha was like a difference maker in the game again". SEC Player of the Year Grant Williams chipped in 15 points, nine boards, three assists and three steals. The Volunteers went on to win 62-59. "Being in that position, I'm comfortable taking shots". Then nothing came easy.
