The Vols (4-3) shot 16-of-33 from 3-point range, tying for the most 3-pointers made in program history and UT's most since making 16 against UNC Asheville on Nov. 17, 2009. Tennessee has now drained 16 3-pointers six times in program history.
Former Vols Matt Darr and Ja'Wuan James felt compelled to help out when they heard the news.
Tennessee junior defensive end Derek Barnett has earned for First Team All-SEC honors and senior quarterback Joshua Dobbs and junior kick returner Evan Berry have garnered Second Team All-SEC honors
