The Tennessee Vols won their first 7 games, including road wins over top-ten teams Villanova and Pittsburgh, and climbed up to 7th place in the polls.

Then came back-to-back losses to Oakland and Charlotte, which caused the Vols to tumble to 19th. 

They were hoping to get back on track tonight, hosting Southern Cal.  The Trojans, coached by former Vol head coach Kevin O’Neill, with a 6-5 record… they killed the Vols a year ago in L-A… and they had the upper hand for most of the game tonight.

Alex Stephenson scored 9 first-half points for the Trojans, who led by 10 with 8-and-a-half minutes left in the first half.  Tobias Harris rallied the Vols.  The freshman scored 10 first half points, helping the Vols take the lead with 2-and-a-half minutes left in the half.  By halftime, though, the Trojans had regained a 6 point lead.

Scotty Hopson’s scoring woes continued… he had only 2 free throws in the first 20 minutes. 

USC’s lead was back up to 10, four minutes into the second half.

Cameron Tatum got the hot hand… Hobson made a couple of buckets.. and with 6-and-a-half minutes left, the Vols had regained the lead.

They couldn’t keep it, though.  S-C led by 5 with just over 2 minutes left. 

The Vols got within a point, and had a chance to win it, but Harris’s three-point try at the buzzer bounces off the rim, and the Vols lose their third in a row.

65-64 Southern Cal wins in Knoxville.
