UT Athletics Department

Kevin Punter Jr. led Tennessee with 23 points; Detrick Mostella scored 13 off the bench.

Tennessee Volunteers - UT VolsSeattle, WA – Tennessee erased a 16-point halftime deficit and led for portions of the second half, but a combined 60 points from Gonzaga’s Domantas Sabonis and Kyle Wiltjer proved too much for the Vols as they fell 86-79 at KeyArena on Saturday night.

The Vols (5-5) trailed by as many as 19 in the first half, but needed only the first 10 minutes of the second half to regain the lead after Devon Baulkman buried a three with 9:43 to go. Tennessee and Gonzaga (8-3) teeter-tottered from there, but the Bulldogs broke a 75-75 deadlock with an 11-4 run to close out the game.
