KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jordan McRae scored 21 points and Jarnell Stokes had a double-double Wednesday as Tennessee beat Auburn 78-67 to hand the Tigers their third consecutive loss.
McRae scored 14 of his 21 points in the second half as Tennessee (11-5, 2-1 SEC) never trailed and won for the fifth time in its last six games. Stokes scored 14 points and pulled down 14 rebounds. Josh Richardson had 15 points. Antonio Barton and Jeronne Maymon added 11 points each.
Chris Denson had 24 points to lead Auburn (8-6, 0-3), which lost to Tennessee for the sixth straight time. KT Harrell had 15 points and Tahj Shamsid-Deen added 10.
Tennessee bounced back after blowing a 14-point halftime lead Saturday in a 57-56 home loss to Texas A&M, which made a game-winning 3-pointer with 4.4 seconds remaining. The Vols avoided the mistakes down the stretch that haunted them Saturday.
