KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Cameron Tatum scored 13 points, and Tennessee hit all four of its free throws in the final minute to hang on to beat East Tennessee State 66-63 on Friday night.
The Buccaneers led throughout the first half and were up 59-51 when a layup by Trae Golden with 5:27 to play launched an 11-0 run for the Volunteers (5-6).
Kenny Hall dunked with 2 minutes left to put Tennessee up 60-59, and the Vols led the rest of the way. Hall followed the basket up with a steal and a dish to Golden, who hit a dunk of his own, and Golden and Jordan McRae each hit a set of free throws to seal the victory.
Adam Sollazzo hit a layup with 10 seconds left and attempted a 3-pointer with 2 seconds to go, but the ball hit the backboard and bounced away. Sollazzo led ETSU (5-6) with 19 points.
