No. 10 Tennessee sparks buzz after stunning No. 1 Alabama to tighten SEC race

It’s been a tough week for Tennessee. The Vols were four games behind Alabama in the SEC race after consecutive high-profile losses to Vanderbilt and Missouri. But the injured Wolves had no intention of missing out on the season. Tennessee forced 19 passes to stun the lead Alabama 68-59.

This is Alabama’s first loss to the Securities and Exchange Commission this season. Jonas Aidoo scored 12 points and 11 rebounds. Zakai Zeigler and Santiago Vescovi scored 15 points each. Vescovi grabbed eight rebounds; Ziegler provided eight assists.

“I’m so proud of the effort our guys put in defensively,” Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said. “The most underrated team in college basketball. Great teamwork. I have to give them credit. They stayed in touch. Just really proud of my efforts. We played hard in the other two games, they didn’t go our way. Tonight? did.”
