Vols Upset Top-Ranked Gonzaga

Monday, December 10, 2018

The seventh-ranked Vols rallied to beat top-ranked and previously unbeaten Gonzaga, 76-73, in the Jerry Colangelo Classic at Talking Stick Resort Arena Sunday.

Tennessee's Admiral Schofield, who finished with a career-high 30 points, buried a pair of 3-pointers from NBA range as part of an 11-5 run over the final 3:17 of play. The senior wing scored all 11 points during the run, knocking down three of his career-high six treys.

Tennessee (7-1) handed the Bulldogs (9-1) their first loss of the season in the nail-biter, marking UT's fifth all-time win against the nation's No. 1 team. Tennessee' defense stepped up to hold one of the nation's best offenses to no field goals during the final 4:16 of the game.

The Vols will be back in action Saturday at Memphis, beginning at noon. Coverage will begin at 11:30 on 103.1 FM WIKQ.
