The Tennessee Volunteers claimed another pelt on Rocky Top, taking down UConn.
It was a day for Pat Summitt in Knoxville, with Tennessee coaches and players wearing t-shirts with "We Back Pat" on them to support the legendary Lady Vols coach during her battle with Alzheimer's. And the result was likely familiar for Summitt, too: Tennessee downed Connecticut, 60-57, claiming another upset in Cuonzo Martin's first year.
Freshman Jarnell Stokes led the Volunteers with 16 points and 12 rebounds, and played good defense on UConn bigs Andre Drummond and Alex Oriakhi, who combined for just 11 points on the day. Cameron Tatum added 14 points for the Vols.
It's the second major upset of the year for Tennessee on Rocky Top: the Vols defeated SEC rival Florida in early January.
