NCAA Tournament

Tennessee coach Martin says win over Mizzou helps Vols toward NCAA tourney

It's seems as if Missouri's most recent loss -- a 64-62 defeat at Tennessee on Saturday -- still won't go away.

When asked about his team's NCAA tourney hopes on Thursday -- just moments after the Vols' win over Mississippi State in the second round of the SEC Tournament -- Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin briefly mentioned his team's win over Missouri as a reason the Vols should be safe.
