KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee guard Jordan McRae is on a roll in the Southeastern Conference. So are the Volunteers, just in the other direction.
The Vols have not been able to capitalize on the best stretch of the junior's career.
He has scored 20 or more points in four consecutive games, all Tennessee losses. The Volunteers have dropped their first three Southeastern Conference games for the first time since 1997-98.
The Vols (8-7, 0-3 SEC) will try to avoid going 0-4 in conference play for the first time since 1993-94 on Saturday when they host Mississippi State (7-8, 2-1).
Meanwhile, the 6-foot-5 McRae leads the SEC with 23.3 points per game in conference play. McRae is the first Tennessee player to score 20-plus points in four straight games since Chris Lofton in 2008.
