Tennessee Outlasts Ole Miss

Tennessee and Ole Miss engaged in a 30-minute dogfight before the Vols managed to pull away 76-65.

Each team had its share of runs for the first three fourths of the game, but neither was really able to put any distance on the other. Both squads ended up below 40 percent on the game, but it had more to do with good defense than anything else. Ole Miss got within three with about eight and a half minutes to go, but it ran out of gas from there and the Vols extended the lead from there.

Each team had a trio of guys in double figures. For UT, it was J.P. Prince (17), Wayne Chism (16), and Bobby Maze (13). For the Rebels, it was Chris Warren (16), Zach Graham (15), and Terrico White (13).

The loss for Ole Miss likely puts it out of the NCAA Tournament. The Rebels had a nice win over Kansas State, but the guys from Oxford had precious few notable wins beyond that.
