KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee's offense was bad. Vanderbilt's was worse.

On a night when both teams posted their lowest point totals of the season, No. 5 Tennessee outlasted Vanderbilt 58-46 on Tuesday in the Volunteers' first game since losing their No. 1 ranking.

"I think we were really good defensively," said Tennessee's Lamonte' Turner, who scored 12 points. "I think we guarded them well, and I think we disrupted a lot of their sets and stuff like that. Offensively for us, I think we turned down some shots, and some shots that normally fall didn't fall tonight. You have those nights."
