AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Cameron Tatum and Brian Williams each scored
15 points and Tennessee took advantage of a depleted Auburn
frontcourt in a 69-56 victory over the Tigers on Thursday night.

The Volunteers (15-7, 5-2 Southeastern Conference) won their
fifth straight league game and controlled the game throughout even
without injured leading scorer Scotty Hopson.

The Tigers (8-14, 1-7) couldn't follow up their first SEC win,
at South Carolina, without suspended starting center Rob Chubb.

Williams had eight rebounds and Tatum seven as the Vols
dominated the boards 38-24, allowing Auburn to grab just seven
rebounds in the first half. Tobias Harris added 14 points.

Allen Payne led Auburn with 13 points and seven boards.

The Vols gradually turned a 13-point halftime lead into a 60-38
rout in the first 10:26 of the second half.

Auburn managed to whittle it down in the final minutes.
