Hopson scores 17; Chism scores all 11 in final 7 minutes as Tide fall short
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Wayne Chism and No. 8 Tennessee went into survival mode again.Chism scored all 11 of his points over the final 7 minutes and the Volunteers held off Alabama for a 63-56 victory on Tuesday night, the second straight game where the senior center has had to come up big at the end for the short-handed team.That makes perfect sense to coach Bruce Pearl.
• The Volunteers improved to 4-0 since Tyler Smith was dismissed from the team.
• The Volunteers have won 13 of their last 14 against unranked opponents.
• Scotty Hopson scored a game-high 17 points to lead Tennessee.
• JaMychal Green had a team-high 16 in the loss for Alabama.
