The Opening Pitch: Tennessee will win the national title. At least, the Vols will if they can channel that effort from Saturday night in Memphis, writes Sporting News' Dan Shanoff in this morning's Wake-Up Call.
It was the biggest/best single win by any team this season. Shanoff stands by his preseason pick that UCLA will win the national title, but here are two more predictions: The Vols will join the Bruins in the Final Four, and Memphis will NOT make the trip to San Antonio -- poor free-throw shooting ultimately will doom the Tigers.
