Bone leads hot-shooting Tennessee past Arkansas 84-66

Bone leads hot-shooting Tennessee past Arkansas 84-66

Bone scored 17 of his game-high 19 points on 7-of-7 shooting in the first half as the second-seeded Volunteers rolled into Sunday's SEC title game with an 84-66 victory over the sixth-seeded Razorbacks at Scottrade Center. "Our mindset is just to go in and go after the first game".

"We've just got to get back to the basics, get back to competing, playing hard", Florida junior guard Jalen Hudson said.

Florida (20-12) is projected as a 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament by both's Joe Lundari and's Jerry Palm. Tip-off is at 2:10 p.m.

Coach Frank Martin's South Carolina Gamecocks were 16-15 and the Rebels of interim coach Tony Madlock, temporarily promoted upon the recent resignation of longtime Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy, were 12-19, before their game Wednesday.

Tennessee had lost five straight to the Razorbacks, including a 95-93 overtime game on December 30 in Fayetteville, where the hosts stormed back late in regulation.

-Some young guys can get overwhelmed and we saw that this week at the SEC Tournament.

When Jordan Bone pulled up and hit a jump shot eight seconds into Tennessee's Southeastern Conference tournament semifinal against Arkansas on Saturday, it seemed like business as usual.

A look around this now strong as any league rebuts otherwise.

"No matter who we are playing we have to come out and try to play how we play, that's hard and with a lot of energy and focus on the defensive end", Chiozza said.

"At this time of the season, our league is so balanced that on any given night anybody can beat anybody", Anderson said.

Arkansas Razorbacks learns its NCAA Tournament fate

"We've struggled shooting layups all year", White said, "and I guarantee you we practice shooting layups more than any team in the country".

Ole Miss also can surprise.

Arkansas moved to 23-10 on the season.

"What has taken place last year, or earlier this year, they played well". Making the tournament is the standard here at Arkansas.

"We had 22 offensive rebounds, and that was the difference", Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said. If not for Stone, the Gators might have lost this game by 20+.

TT: I think we can make a big run in the tournament.

Just more than 24 hours after their run in the SEC Tournament ended in the semifinals, Arkansas officially punched their ticket to the NCAA Tournament.

Arkansas' last victory over the Gators had been five years ago, 80-69 on February 5, 2013, in Coach Mike Anderson's second season with the Razorbacks. We haven't done that yet, so we're still a hungry team. Gafford then got a one-handed rebound dunk, Macon scored on a bank shot and Adrio Bailey scored on a layup with an assist from Gafford.

However, the Razorbacks are a man down for this season's duration with senior Dustin Thomas, usually the starter in a cluster of power forwards used, permanently dismissed from the team, Anderson announced Monday.
