Miss. State's Howland says Tennessee the team to beat in SEC

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Mississippi State coach Ben Howland says the media picked the wrong team to win the Southeastern Conference men's basketball title.

Nothing against Kentucky, he just sees the returning talent at defending co-regular season champion Tennessee - and believes the Volunteers are the team to beat.

"They're the best team in our league going into the season, in my opinion, because of all the experience returning," Howland said Wednesday at SEC media day.

Howland says "there's no doubt they're the team to beat in our conference."
