CBS' Matt Norlander, Gary Parrish pick Texas vs. Tennessee men's basketball game
Matt Norlander picked Tennessee.
Gary Parrish picked Texas.
"This is a tough one, but I'm going to have a little fun here," Norlander said. "Tennessee on the road straight up win, which will make for a little bit of an awkward deal there if (Texas head coach) Chris Beard can't win at home against a former (Texas) coach. ... (Tennessee guard) Kennedy Chandler has a wonderful game. (Tennessee forward John) Fulkerson is the best player on the floor. Vols wins by two."
"Does it concern you at all that Tennessee is 2-3 in road games this year," Parrish said. "Only road wins at Colorado and at Vanderbilt. I can't trust them. ... I got to take Texas at home."
Tennessee won 69-54 at Colorado on Dec. 4, and Tennessee won 68-60 at Vanderbilt on Jan. 18.
