The Tennessee Volunteers upset the 23rd ranked Wichita St. Shockers at home on Thursday night, 69-60. The game was close the entire way with neither team able to pull away by more than a couple points. The Vols took a 60-59 led when Kenny Hall sunk a free throw with just over three minutes remaining, and they would hold onto the lead for the rest of the way.
Trae Golden led the Vols with 25 points and five assists, followed by Jordan McRae with 17. Yemi Makanjuola had nine points and eight rebounds. The Vols are still missing forward Jeronne Maymon, who has yet to play this season after undergoing offseason knee surgery.
Carl Hall led the way for the Shockers with 21 points and nine rebounds, and also chipped in with three blocks. He was the only WSU player to break into double figures in scoring.
Wichita State has a week off before they play again, when they host Charleston Southern on Dec. 20. Tennessee plays again on Tuesday, Dec. 18, when they host Presbyterian.
