UT Athletics Department

Tennessee Volunteers - UT VolsNashville, TN – Tennessee dominated the first half and withstood a late Vanderbilt surge to defeat the Commodores, 67-65, on Thursday at Bridgestone Arena and advance to the SEC Tournament quarterfinals.

The Vols (15-18) will next face No. 4 seed LSU (18-13) on Friday in the quarterfinals.

For a moment, No. 5 seed Vanderbilt (19-13) looked like it had sent the game into overtime. However, Wade Baldwin IV’s layup with time expiring was waived off after replays showed the ball still rolling off his fingers with zeros on the clock.
