Bayamon, PR (Sports Network) - Jarnell Stokes registered a double-double with 24 points and 12 rebounds as he led the Tennessee Volunteers to an 83-69 win over the Massachusetts Minutemen in the third-place game of the 2012 Puerto Rico Tip-Off at Coliseo Ruben Rodriquez.

Off the bench Jordan McRae provided 12 points for the Volunteers (3-1), followed by the trio of Skylar McBee, Trae Golden and Josh Richardson who all tallied 11 points, the latter also clearing nine rebounds.
