Virginia outlasts Tennessee 46-38

Posted: Updated:

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Akil Mitchell had 13 points and 12 rebounds, and Joe Harris also scored 13 as Virginia won a battle of stout defenses Wednesday night, 46-38 against Tennessee.

The victory was the sixth in a row for the Cavaliers (7-2) and came after they limited the Vols to 28.8 percent shooting and just 15 field goals.

Trae Golden scored 11 to lead Tennessee (4-3), which scored just 36 points in a one-point loss to No. 15 Georgetown on Friday and picked up where it left off.

The Vols scored just six points in the first 14:50 of the game, and just five more after using a 12-2 run to get within 38-33 with 7:41 left. Golden and Skylar McRae hit 3-pointers in the burst, and Kenny Hall closed it with two free throws, but Tennessee scored just one point over the next 6:14.
