KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Scotty Hopson scored 15 points to lead
No. 16 Tennessee to an 80-73 win over Arkansas on Wednesday night.

The Vols shot 54.5 percent for the game and had five players
score in double figures, but it was a technical foul called on
Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl that helped the Vols (22-7, 10-5 SEC)
finally pull away from the Razorbacks (14-16, 7-8).

Early in the second half, Tennessee's Cameron Tatum was called
for a charge. Pearl was charged with the technical for arguing the
foul, and the Vols broke open a close game with a 10-0 run
immediately after.

Bobby Maze capped off the run with a long pass between two
defenders to J.P. Prince, who dunked it for a 61-48 lead with 11:26
left.

The Razorbacks would not get closer than six points from that
point. Courtney Fortson led Arkansas with 21 points, but shot just
6-of-17.
