Robert Hubbs With Career High 28 Points as Vols Beat Chaminade in Maui Invitational
LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) – Robert Hubbs III scored a career high 28 points, Detrick Mostella added 14 and Tennessee beat host Chaminade 95-81 Wednesday to take seventh place in the Maui Invitational.
Tennessee (2-3) had an inconsistent trip to Maui, playing well for stretches against No. 16 Wisconsin and No. 13 Oregon, but ultimately losing to both.
The Vols didn’t have much trouble with the Division II Silverswords, using a short run late in the first half to build an 11-point lead and sustaining it through the second half.
Tennessee shot 52 percent and had a 52-32 advantage in the paint. Shembari Phillips had 12 points and Jordan Bowden 11 for the Vols.
Chaminade (2-3) closed out another Maui Invitational by putting a scare into power programs again, notably UConn in the second round.
The Silverswords kept Tennessee from turning their finale into a rout by hitting 9-of-25 3-pointers.
Rohndell Goodwin led Chaminade with 22 points and Kiran Shastri added 19.
