UT Athletics Department

Tennessee Volunteers - UT VolsColumbia, MO – Senior Kevin Punter’s 21 points wasn’t enough for Tennessee Saturday, as the Vols fell 75-64 to Missouri at Mizzou Arena.

The Volunteers (12-13, 5-7 SEC) struggled with shooting the ball consistently, shooting 38 percent from the field compared to the Tigers’ (9-16, 2-10 SEC) 55 percent, the second highest percentage for Missouri this season.

After being down by as much as 14 points in the first half, UT cut Mizzou’s lead to just four points after senior Devon Baulkman drove to the basket for a layup with 1:25 remaining in the game, but a 38-27 halftime deficit would be too much for the Volunteers to overcome.
