Colgate- Colgate ranks in the top 15 in the country in 3-point percentage and its lineup is a mismatch waiting to happen. All five of Colgate's starters can knock down the 3.

ESPN.com writes: "Colgate has the right blend of scoring, size and perimeter prowess to make things very difficult in its opening round matchup."

The Raiders have a tendancy to turn the ball over frequently.  They also haven't played a whole lot of top teams.  Colgate played only three teams inside the KenPom top 100 and lost handily to all three.

Colgate guard Jordan Burns refuted a report Wednesday that he had missed the team plane to Columbus and had to take an Uber instead, saying Thursday, "That wasn't true at all. Fake news." Burns told the Knoxville News Sentinel that his mother and others reached out after seeing the report, and he had to reassure them he was with his teammates at their hotel in Columbus. "It's just a fake tweet. It's really hysterical," he told the newspaper.

Tennessee - The Tennessee Volunteers wrapped the regular season with the highest winning percentage in school history.  The Volunteers have an efficient offense. They avoid turnovers while converting at the free throw line (76.8 percent) Tennessee is subpar in defensive rebounding percentage (70.2) and rarely forces turnovers.  They do lack depth.

Predictions

College Football News: "Can the Raiders get going from three early on? They’ll have to start bombing and keep shooting from outside, but they’ll also give the ball away way too often for easy points for the Vols. The SEC Tournament championship loss to Auburn will wake up what will be a powerhouse throughout the next few weeks."

They have a win of 15 points, which means a cover for Colgate.

Line

The line on this game was Tennessee -17.5.
