KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Tennessee's basketball managers work year-round to support the Vols.
Behind the scenes, though, they've been playing games of their own, against managers from other teams.
Recently, they earned a spot in the Elite Eight of the "Manager Games" national tournament, comprised of 64 teams.
Up to this point, the "games" in the tournament have been based on twitter polls ... but from this point forward, the teams will play actual games to decide who wins the "Manager Games" national championship.
The games will be in Minneapolis, Minn., the site of this year's NCAA Final Four.
