Vols Elite for First Time

Tennessee tops Ohio State to reach regional final
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Brian Williams scored on a tip-in with 32
seconds left, Bobby Maze converted a pair of free throws and J.P.
Prince blocked Evan Turner's desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer,
leading Tennessee to a 76-73 victory over Ohio State in the Midwest
Regional semifinals Friday night.
It's the first trip to the round of eight in school history for
the sixth-seeded Volunteers.
Turner, a leading contender for national player of the year
honors, was a one-man scoring machine in the second half,
accounting for all but three of Ohio State's baskets. But it's
5-on-5, not 1-on-5, and the second-seeded Buckeyes are going home.
