The revenge tour continues:

Tennessee - Lost to them in 2017 Battle 4 Atlantis, beat them in 2019 NCAA Tournament.

Texas - Lost in Austin last year, lost in mackey this year.

VCU - Lost to them in the 2011 NCAA Tournament, beat last night.

Florida State - Lost in Tallahassee last year, pending.

Virginia - Lost in 2019 NCAA Tournament, pending.

It was a frustrating loss to FSU last year in Tallahassee, so hopefully a measure of revenge is exacted tonight. Let’s bring home an early season championship.
