Jordan McRae netted 23 points while Jarnell Stokes registered a double-double with 20 points and 16 rebounds for Tennessee (16-10, 8-6 SEC), which played the first four overtime game in program history. Skylar McBee added 12 points off the bench as the Volunteers won their fifth straight game.

After a back and forth second half, Stokes drew a foul with Tennessee trailing 62-61 with five seconds remaining. The Volunteers' big man made just one of two from the free-throw line to tie the score and force overtime.

Two Harris free throws gave the Aggies a 73-69 advantage with 25 seconds remaining in the first overtime period. After a Golden layup and a made free- throw by Reese, McRae drilled a 3-pointer with nine seconds left to force a second overtime.

Turner scored the first four points of the second overtime but once again Golden responded, this time with a triple to bring Tennessee back to within one.
