Tennessee was named the No. 1 basketball team in the nation on Monday for just the second time ever after a wild weekend saw several top teams upset.

Tennessee moved from No. 3 to No. 1 in Week 12 of the Associated Press Top 25 poll after defeating Alabama to remain perfect in conference play. 

Tennessee hasn’t received a No. 1 ranking since 2008 when they defeated then- number one Memphis Tigers

Tennessee will travel to Nashville to play Vanderbilt on Wednesday in their first game as the newly top-ranked team. Classic KSR will have the game broadcast with the tip off at 6:00.
