Florida vs Tennessee Pick: Friday, March 12th
Florida vs Tennessee Pick – Friday, March 12th: Florida did an excellent job of handling the loss of star Keyontae Johnson this year. They closed the regular season with a 72-70 home loss to Missouri and followed that up with a 65-54 loss at these Tennessee Volunteers on Sunday. Florida was seemingly in control but was outscored 37-21 in the 2nd half. Leading scorer Tre Mann did not play in that game and has been dealing with migraines. He returned for Florida’s 69-63 win over Vanderbilt in the 2nd round of the SEC tournament, scoring 22 points and adding 7 board and 6 assists. They will go as far as Tre Mann will take them. They shoot the ball well, hitting 47% from the field, 35.5% from three, and 75.3% from the line.

Tennessee was not playing perfect ball down the stretch as they won 3 of their last 6 to close the regular season. Their wins came against South Carolina, Vanderbilt, and Florida without Tre Mann. They are led in scoring by guards Jaden Springer, Victor Bailey, and Keon Johnson, who all average double digits. Springer is hitting 46.2% from three. While they don’t light up the scoreboard, averaging 72.5 points per game, they play solid defense allowing just 62.7 per game. They play clean enough ball, only turning it over 12.3 times a game; they hit 44.3% from the field, 33.6% from three, and can be trusted at the line hitting 74.5%
