CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Jamar Briscoe scored 14 points, fed Phil Jones for the go-ahead layup with 7.4 seconds left and Charlotte handed No. 7 Tennessee its second stunning upset loss of the week, 49-48 on Friday night.
Cameron Tatum missed a desperation heave at the buzzer for the Volunteers (7-2), who have followed a blowout win over then-No. 3 Pittsburgh with losses to Oakland and Charlotte.
Derrio Green added 13 points and the 49ers (5-6) overcame 30 percent shooting by using a zone defense that stymied the Volunteers into 35 percent shooting. Tennessee hit just 2 of 17 3-pointers and 2 of 7 free throws in a loss that will surely see them plummet in the rankings.
Scotty Hopson scored 13 points for Tennessee on 6-of-19 shooting. Tobias Harris added 12 points and 10 rebounds.
