KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said he warned his team that Tennessee Tech wouldn’t go away quietly.
It appeared many of the Vols young players, however, had to learn that lesson for themselves Tuesday night at Thompson-Boling Arena.
Tennessee (5-4) hung on for a 74-68 win over Tennessee Tech (4-8).
The Golden Eagles cut the Vols’ 22-point lead down to five points before Robert Hubbs lll (25 points) came up with what Barnes said was the play of the game, blocking a shot with 32 seconds left.
