LOSS
Sun 3/17

The Vols are coming off a big win over a heated rival, Kentucky, but must be ready for the SEC Championship Game. Auburn knocked them off the final game of the regular season, dropping Tennessee from a first-place tie with LSU to a second-place tie with Kentucky. With Kentucky out of the picture, Bridgestone Arena will be full of Tennessee fans. I'll take the better team playing at home with revenge. My projection: Tennessee 78, Auburn 68.

Sun 3/17

The Cougars bring the 13th-best defense in adjusted points per possession but they're No. 1 in effective field goal percentage defense. Houston is 7-3 to the Under the past 10 games. Cincy's defense is its strength, and the Bearcats play at a very slow pace. On average, there are only 63 possessions in their games. Cincy is 10-5 to the Under away from home, and eight of the past 10 meetings have gone Under. My projection: Houston 62, Cincinnati 60.
