AUBURN, Ala. (AP) Jarnell Stokes had 20 points, seven rebounds and seven assists to help Tennessee rout Auburn 82-54 on Wednesday night.
The Volunteers (19-11, 10-7) were up 24 points at halftime and never gave the Tigers (13-15, 5-12) a glimmer of hope after the opening minutes. Five players scored in double figures in Tennessee's third straight win.
Stokes was 8-of-10 shooting for Tennessee, which is trying to strengthen its NCAA tournament hopes. Antonio Barton made four 3-pointers and scored 14 points while Jordan McCrae and Jeronne Maymon had 13 apiece. Josh Richardson scored 10.
