Tennessee Volunteers DFS Spin

Tennessee has twice played without its leading scorer at the Battle 4 Atlantis. It hasn't stopped the 22nd-ranked Volunteers from reaching the championship game.

Julian Phillips scored a season-high 25 points to help Tennessee hold off Southern California 73-66 in overtime in Thursday's semifinals, setting up a matchup with third-ranked and reigning national champion Kansas for the title.

Kansas Jayhawks DFS Spin

Kansas' Bobby Pettiford Jr. stood all the way out near midcourt, almost on the Battle 4 Atlantis logo, when he saw his teammate launch a shot for the lead with only a few seconds left in overtime.

He sprinted all the way under the basket just in time to see a loose rebound pop to him. Pettiford then made a twisting reverse layup with 0.2 seconds left to give No. 3 Kansas a 69-68 win against Wisconsin on Thursday in a tournament semifinal game.
