Even though Ole Miss outplayed Tennessee for much of Wednesday's game, the Rebels left with their first loss of the season, thanks to Tyler Smith, who keyed the Vols' win down the stretch, writes Chris Low.
J.P. Prince scored a career-high 23 points Saturday, and Tyler Smith led a late surge that rallied No. 12 Tennessee to an 82-75 victory over Xavier, which couldn't handle the Volunteers' pressure defense when it mattered.
Tyler Smith transferred to Tennessee, the school where his father always wanted him to be, this summer. And the 21-year-old feels grateful to have had a few extra months with his father before he died in September from cancer, writes Chris Low.
