Admiral Schofield had 20 points and nine rebounds yesterday and No. 23 Tennessee rallied in the second half to beat No. 17 Kentucky 76-65. This marks the third consecutive season that Tennessee (10-4, 1-2 SEC) has beaten Kentucky (12-3, 2-1) in Knoxville. Kentucky entered the night leading the overall series 153-69, but no team has beaten the Wildcats as often as Tennessee. The Volunteers had blown leads of at least nine points in each of its four losses this season, including its first two SEC games, while Kentucky had rallied from halftime deficits to beat Georgia and LSU in its first two SEC matchups. This time, it was Tennessee staging the second-half comeback. Grant Williams scored 16 of his 18 points in the second half as Tennessee erased an eight-point halftime deficit. Lamonte Turner added 11 points and five assists. Quade Green scored 14 points to lead Kentucky.
