LIVE: Rick Barnes talks about Tennessee basketball loss to FAU in Sweet 16
Tennessee basketball has a huge opportunity this weekend in New York.
First, the Vols face 9-seed FAU in the Sweet 16 inside Madison Square Garden. The winner will play the Michigan State-Kansas State winner on Saturday for a spot in the Final Four.
How big is the next three days? Tennessee would earn its second-ever Elite Eight trip (2010) with a win. Two wins in New York would produce the Vols' first Final Four berth in program history.
FAU won against Memphis and Fairleigh Dickinson to get to the Sweet 16, while the Vols survived against Louisville and throttled Duke to make the second weekend.
