Chapel Hill, NC – Tennessee led No. 7 North Carolina by five with just 4:32 remaining in regulation on Sunday at the Dean E. Smith Center, but the upset bid came up short as the Tar Heels outscored UT 10-5 over the decisive stretch, handing the Vols a 73-71 loss.
Tennessee (4-4) was led by senior Robert Hubbs III, who scored a game-high 21 points on 9-of-11 shooting. He also had a team-high six rebounds. Freshman Jordan Bowden added 12 points with five boards.
After leading by as many as 15 in the first half, the Vols successfully fended off North Carolina’s (10-1) comeback attempts for much of the second half.
