No. 4 Tennessee beat No. 17 South Carolina, 66-59, to secure their first outright SEC regular-season championship since 2008 and their 11th SEC regular-season championship in program history. Per SEC Sports:

COLUMBIA, S.C. – The University of Tennessee men's basketball team defeated No. 17 South Carolina, 66-59, on its home court Saturday night to lock up the 11th SEC regular season championship in program history, including its sixth outright.

Fifth-year guard Dalton Knecht led all scorers with 26 points for fourth-ranked Tennessee (24-6, 14-3 SEC), which never trailed at a sold-out Colonial Life Arena on the way to, for the first time ever, defeating its third straight AP top-25 foe in as many outings, including its second in a row on the road, also a program first.

The triumph also marked the 100th in SEC play for ninth-year head coach Rick Barnes, who has guided the Volunteers to an SEC regular season crown in two of the last seven seasons, tied for the most of any team in that time.
