Tennessee Volunteers - UT VolsNashville, TN After trailing by as many as 21, Tennessee fought back to within a couple possessions of No. 8 Gonzaga, but the second-half push went no further as the Vols fell to the unbeaten Bulldogs, 86-76, at Bridgestone Arena on Sunday night.

Tennessee (6-5) was led offensively by junior guard Detrick Mostella, who spurred the Vols’ comeback attempt with 15 of his 17 points coming in the second half. Grant Williams added 11 points while Robert Hubbs III finished with 10.

Billed as The Battle on Broadway, Sunday’s game between Tennessee and Gonzaga (11-0) was a rematch of last season’s Battle in Seattle. This season’s edition played out in a similar fashion as the one before it, with the Bulldogs jumping out to a big early lead and the Vols nearly erasing it.

This all started last summer. Little did I know it would turn my holiday turkey into just one more kitchen disaster.
