Tennessee Volunteers - UT VolsColumbia, SC – Tennessee struggled from the field against the SEC’s top-rated defense, suffering an 82-55 defeat at South Carolina on Saturday. Senior guard Robert Hubbs III was the only Volunteer to finish in double figures, scoring 16 points on the afternoon.

Those figures held true on Saturday as Tennessee (15-14, 7-9 SEC) was limited to 55 points–its lowest scoring output of the season–on just 33.3 percent shooting.
