Volunteers Hot Shooting Leads to Rout of 'Hoos

Tennessee scored first and never trailed Monday against the Virginia men's basketball team, as the Volunteers routed UVa 87-52.

The Vols shot 57.7 percent from the field and 8-for-11 from 3 in the first half as they built up a 48-26 halftime lead. Meanwhile, the Cavaliers shot just 32.1 percent for the first half.
