More About Tennessee

Stuckey: This isn’t your older brother’s Tennessee team — nor the team that you may have seen earlier this season. This team has guards that can score and thrive in catch and shoot situations.

Their weakness is actually inside at this point in this season. Of course, Rick Barnes still has an elite defense that ranks third nationally in adjusted efficiency, and his squad can still get after the offensive boards as well as any, but this is a guard-driven team led by the continued emergence of Zakai Ziegler. Their backcourt emergence makes them much more dangerous.

The Vols have Final Four potential.

More About Michigan

Avery Yang: Although Michigan has been inconsistent all season, the Wolverines snuck into the NCAA tournament despite some foibles. The Wolverines’ 17-14 overall record doesn’t scream quality, but the advanced metrics absolutely love this team, especially relative to how it has actually performed.

Michigan is ranked the No. 33 team in college basketball, according to KenPom, to go along with the No. 20 offense in the country. That’s even with a first-round exit in the Big Ten Tournament to an average Indiana team.

Does the Wolverines’ record reflect the toughness of their conference more than it does their own deficiencies? Or is Michigan an undeserving bubble team? Those questions are sure to be answered soon.
