Location: PNC Arena (Raleigh, NC)
Prediction: The Vols are hot, winners of six of seven games, with the sole loss coming to Florida. The run may be saving Cuonzo Martin's job, and the players seem to be all in. UMass has been a tough out all season. but they've been vulnerable during the second half of the year, with losses to St. Bonaventure, Richmond, and a few of the stronger A-10 teams. This should be a fantastic match-up, but Tennessee is playing great ball and has a talent advantage on the Minutemen.
