ST. LOUIS — After a series of exciting finishes, the SEC Tournament got some real duds Saturday.

Which can happen to teams with tired legs.

After Kentucky demolished Alabama, Tennessee did the same thing to a weary Arkansas team.

In both cases, the team with three games in three days got hammered and the team that did not got a relatively easy win.

Not only that, but Arkansas played the late game Friday and had to play again less than 16 hours later.

It sets up a Tennessee-Kentucky rematch. The Vols swept a pair of games from the Wildcats this season.

“They couldn’t miss,” said Arkansas guard Daryl Macon. “They were feeling it.”

The SEC co-champs and No. 2 seed rolled to a 19-point first-half lead and were never truly threatened. Jordan Bone led the way for the Vols (25-7) with 19 points.

Arkansas will head to the NCAA Tournament with a 23-11 record.
