Why Tennessee can cover

Tennessee’s success may coincide on how well the Volunteers shoot the 3-pointer. Last season, Tennessee was 13-1 when making 10 or more. They made 14 vs. Tennessee Tech on Monday in the win. Senior guard Tyreke Key had the hot hand in the opener, finishing with 17 points, four rebounds and three steals. He connected on 4-of-8 3-pointers. The transfer from Indiana State averaged 17.2 points for the Sycamores last season.

Also expected to help power the offense is sophomore guard Zakai Zeigler, who scored 12 points on Monday. He also dished out five assists, grabbed two rebounds and made two steals. He struggled from 3-point range, connecting on just 2-of-12. In 35 games last season, including one start, Zeigler averaged 8.8 points a game. His 3-point shooting was at 35.2%, and averaged nearly two boards per game.

Why Colorado can cover
