Things weren’t looking good for the Tennessee Volunteers early on Saturday evening. They’d already watched as Auburn clinched at least a share of the SEC title and were trailing Georgia by eight points at halftime.
However, the Vols turned things around in the second half and pulled away for a narrow 66-61 victory over the Dawgs, earning themselves a share of the regular-season title as well.
After the game, the players were understandably in a celebratory mood, drenching coach Rick Barnes with water, as you can see in the video shared by @Vol_Hoops on Twitter below:

The Vols will have the No. 2 seed in the SEC Tournament in St. Louis this week, as they lost the tiebreaker to Auburn, but the Vols could very well end up in the title game.
Barnes has his team peaking at the right time, and it should be a fun tourney when the Vols tip off for their first action on Friday.
