Tennessee coasted to a 99-57 men's baketball victory against visiting Victory University on Monday night at Thompson-Boling Arena in the Vols’ final preseason contest.
Redshirt freshman Quinton Chievous led UT with 15 points and nine rebounds, as all 10 Vols who saw action each played more than 10 minutes and scored six or more points. Jordan McRae matched Chievous with 15 points.
In an exhibition last week at Auburn, Victory trailed by 41 at halftime on its way to a 108-57 loss. Against the Vols, the halftime
margin was slightly less daunting. UT led 38-26.
The Vols were without starting forward Jeronne Maymon, who is sidelined for the start of the season with a knee injury.
Tennessee returns to Thompson-Boiling Arena on Friday to open the regular season against Kennesaw State.
