Georgia vs Tennessee

Stokes leads Tennessee past Georgia 67-48

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Jarnell Stokes had 20 points and 11 rebounds Tuesday night as Tennessee trounced Georgia 67-48 to snap the Bulldogs' four-game winning streak.

Stokes went 6 of 7 for 13 points Saturday in a 75-70 loss at Missouri, but he didn't shoot in the last 17 1/2 minutes of that game. Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin quipped Monday that the Volunteers needed to pass the ball to Stokes more often, even if Martin had to do it himself.

The Vols (16-10, 7-6 SEC) followed Martin's advice.

Stokes shot 9 of 13 and posted his SEC-leading 15th double-double as Tennessee outscored Georgia 34-18 in points in the paint.

Antonio Barton broke out of a slump by scoring 12 points and going 4 of 7 from 3-point range for Tennessee. Jordan McRae had 11 points and Josh Richardson added 10.

Kenny Gaines scored 13 points and J.J. Frazier added 12 for Georgia (14-11, 8-5).

Stokes wasted no time making an impact.

By halftime, Stokes already had exceeded his shot total from the Missouri game. Stokes shot 6 of 9 for 13 points, six rebounds and three blocks to give Tennessee a 34-28 lead at the intermission after a first half that featured four ties and six lead changes.

Stokes' performance helped Tennessee overcome its suspect outside shooting early in the game. The Vols were just 2 of 11 from 3-point range in the first half before going 4 of 7 in the second half.

Both teams got production from unlikely sources.

Frazier, a 5-foot-10 freshman who was averaging just 2.5 points per game, already had a career-high 10 points by halftime for Georgia. Frazier made each of his four first-half shots, including a pair of 3-pointers.

Barton made his first two 3-point attempts of the night off the bench after shooting just 3 of 29 from beyond the arc in the nine games leading up to this one. Barton stayed hot the rest of the night as Tennessee led throughout the second half.

Georgia had succeeded in SEC play by relying on rebounds and free-throw attempts, but Tennessee limited the Bulldogs in both of those areas.

Tennessee outrebounded Georgia 37-30 and became the first SEC opponent to outrebound the Bulldogs all season. Georgia entered the night averaging an SEC-leading 32.1 free throws per game in league competition, but the Bulldogs were just 8 of 11 from the line Tuesday.
