KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Scotty Hopson scored 23 points as
Tennessee survived sloppy play to beat South Carolina 73-67 on
Wednesday night.

The victory ended a three-game losing skid for Tennessee (16-10,
6-5 Southeastern Conference) and extended the Volunteers' winning
streak over the Gamecocks to eight straight.

Kenny Hall tipped in a missed layup by Melvin Goins to give the
Vols a 66-53 lead with 3:05 left. Hall then fouled Malik Cooke at
the other end as he hit a layup. Cooke hit the ensuing free throw
and followed up a Tennessee turnover with a 3-pointer as part of an
8-0 run that left the Vols with a 66-61 lead with a minute

The Vols went 7 of 8 from the free-throw line in the final
minute of the game to seal the victory.

Cooke scored 22 points for the Gamecocks (13-11, 4-7), who lost
their fourth straight to remain in last place in the SEC East.
