Knoxville, TN – In front of a season-high crowd of 21,957, No. 3 Tennessee Vols Basketball edged the Alabama Crimson Tide 71-68 Saturday to remain undefeated in Southeastern Conference play.
With the Vols (16-1, 5-0 SEC) up 69-68 with 3.2 seconds, Alabama’s (11-6, 2-3 SEC) John Petty was called for a travel at the elbow to give the ball back to Tennessee. Lamonte Turner drilled both of his attempts at the line to give UT a three-point edge with 2.5 seconds left in the game.
A half-court heave from Alabama’s Kira Lewis Jr. was long at the buzzer, giving Tennessee its 11th win inside of Thompson-Boling Arena this season.
