KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jarnell Stokes had 20 points and 11 rebounds Tuesday night as Tennessee trounced Georgia 67-48 to snap the Bulldogs' four-game winning streak.
Stokes went 6 of 7 for 13 points Saturday in a 75-70 loss at Missouri, but he didn't shoot in the last 17 ½ minutes of that game. Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin quipped Monday that the Volunteers needed to pass the ball to Stokes more often, even if Martin had to do it himself.
The Vols (16-10, 7-6 SEC) followed Martin's advice.
Stokes shot 9 of 13 and posted his SEC-leading 15th double-double as Tennessee outscored Georgia 34-18 in points in the paint.
Antonio Barton broke out of a slump by scoring 12 points and going 4 of 7 from 3-point range for Tennessee. Jordan McRae had 11 points and Josh Richardson added 10.
Kenny Gaines scored 13 points and J.J. Frazier added 12 for Georgia (14-11, 8-5).
