Columbia, SC (Sports Network) - Jarnell Stokes recorded a double-double with 20 points and 10 rebounds as the Tennessee Volunteers logged a 66-61 win over the South Carolina Gamecocks in an SEC battle at Colonial Life Arena.

Stokes, who was guilty of six turnovers, also blocked four shots for the Vols (12-10, 4-6 SEC) as they snapped a two-game slide. Trae Golden added 16 points off the bench for the visitors as they picked up their first road win of the campaign.
