Richardson's late free throws lift team to Rocky Top title

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee Senior Josh Richardson scored 46 points in the Rocky Top League championship game in leading Campus Lights to a 131-130 win over Rice Buick GMC. Of those 46 points, none were more crucial than two free throws Richardson hit with 1.2 seconds left to give his team the league title.

Despite the fun nature of the league Richardson says it always feels good to end a season on top, "This game was a lot more competitive than the other games. If you're a competitor it doesn't matter where you're playing at if you win, especially a championship, it feels good."

Also putting on a show was incoming UT freshman Detrick Mostella who combined good shooting from 3 with several powerful dunks on his way to a game high 48 points in a losing effort for Rice Buick GMC.
