Vols Easily Handle Tennessee Tech In Tune-Up Game For Wichita State

The Vols will have a week to focus on their next opponent — #11 Wichita State — after easily beating Tennessee Tech on Saturday afternoon.

Jarnell Stokes had his fourth straight double-double — with 19 points and 13 rebounds — to the lead the Vols (6-2) to a 83-64 victory over the Golden Eagles (5-6).

Tennessee led by only one at the half, but went on a 22-3 run to open the second half to blow the game wide open.

Three Vols, in addition to Jarnell Stokes, scored in double figures for UT.

Jordan McRae scored 16 points, while Jeronne Maymon and Josh Richardson each contributed 13 points.

Tennessee Tech stayed close by hitting 10 of their 20 three-point attempts, but the Vols were able to pull away using their advantages on the boards and from the free throw line.

The Vols travel to #11 Wichita State next Saturday at 2:00 PM ET.

The Shockers will play Oral Roberts later Saturday night.
