The Vanderbilt Commodores were without their two leading scorers, Scotty Pippen Jr. and Dylan Disu, and they were missing a rotational player in Clevon Brown. Nonetheless, Tennessee basketball, coming off an embarrassing loss to the Kentucky Wildcats, embarrassed itself again by needing to pull away late for a 70-58 win. UT was only up by four with four minutes to go.
