Season stats:

  • Points per game: 21.1
  • Rebounds per game: 4.7
  • Assists per game: 1.8

On the AP All-American first team, Dalton Knecht has led the Vols offensive attack this season. He is also a semifinalist for the Naismith trophy and led Tennessee to an SEC regular season title.

Knecht minimizes second chances for his opponents with 4 defensive rebounds per game and leads the Vols’ offensive charges with 21.1 points per game.

As Tennessee enters the tournament with just eight losses and the two-seed in the Midwest Region, Knecht could be a problem for the Ducks and any other team that faces him.
