Bloggers React to SEC Tournament Day 3

GAME 9: Kentucky 74 - Tennessee 45

A Sea of Blue understandably came out of this contest feeling good about UK's chances in the Big Dance:

I am very pleased, and I know most Wildcat fans are just as pleased.  This is the kind of game that makes me think we have a chance to go all the way this year.  I'm still not there yet, but this was a step in that direction for me.

The folks at Rocky Top Talk though were not pleased with the Vols' effort, to say the least:

It can't be stressed enough:  it takes a 40 minute effort to beat Kentucky.  Even when both teams were sloppy for most of the first half (double digit turnovers in the first twenty minutes for both teams), the Vols should've known, and we should've learned this lesson when they erased a 19 point lead in Knoxville:  you have to play with poise the entire game, and you absolutely cannot have gaps in scoring.  And today, Tennessee flatlined on more than one occasion.

GAME 10: Mississippi State 62 - Vanderbilt 52

For Whom the Cowbell Tolls is optimistic about the Bulldogs' chances to go dancing after this one:

This win was crucial for Mississippi State to make it over the bubble and secure a spot in the NCAA Tournament. A win tomorrow would definitely punch their ticket, but already the bracketologists are showing the Bulldogs as the last team in.

Anchor of Gold was pretty optimistic itself going in:

Vandy by 1 for 1st half. 1.5 for game. O/U 141. 

Vandy and the over. We're going to pick up where we left off in the last five minutes of the UGA game last night. Watch for Threesus to keep the party going.

Whoops.
