How in the world did this happen? After getting up to No. 6 in both polls, Tennessee basketball suffered an embarrassing setback on the road, falling 75-49 to a Florida Gators team that has struggled with consistency all year.

The Vols never led after going up 2-0 in the game and fell behind by 11 at halftime and then by 20 with 11 minute to go by allowing UF to go on an 11-0 run in the second half.
