Tennessee basketball rankings

Vols received seven votes this week, putting them at #42.

Also interesting to look at the Battle 4 Atlantis teams:

Gotta go 2-1.

Even if it's not winning the first 2, we could still play a quality team in the 3rd place game.

Still think we can go in and make it to the championship game. Just come out from the start and play good defense.

What would look better on us...I asked this before I think. But Xavier beating Iowa and then we beat Xavier or visa versa? Personally I hope we get a rematch with Xavier! Also if we go 2-1 and lose to Kansas will we be ranked? Or would we have to wait and be 7-2 if we beat Wichita State?

Only reason I hope we play Iowa because they're now ranked so beating them and putting up a fight against Kansas and it being close may get us ranked.

This team with the 9 man rotation that I saw Friday is dramatically better than the one that played Xavier. I want Xavier bad - we will beat them if given another opportunity.

I believe, from what I've seen so far, we can hang with these teams now. We seem to be clicking. Hope so.
GO VOLS!

I think xavier beating Iowa and us beating Xavier is definitely better, no doubt.

It would likely depend on what everyone else does, but I doubt we are ranked unless we win it all. Too many unbeaten teams remaining at this point that were ahead of us to start with.

So UT gets the winner of the Iowa-Xavier game?

UT beats UTEP
Iowa beats UT (Iowa is a great team, IMO. Could Knock off Kansas in the finals.)
Not sure who wins in the Xavier matchup

If we beat UTEP but lose to Iowa we would likely face Villanova, but no way we'd be facing Xavier.

Can you give a synopsis on Iowa, I haven't watched them this year. They've crushed opponents but played nobody it seems.
