Tennessee pulls away for win over Auburn

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Jordan McRae and Trae Golden each scored 21 points to lead Tennessee to an 82-75 come-from-behind victory over Auburn on Wednesday night.

Trying to keep their NCAA tournament hopes alive, the Volunteers (18-11, 10-7 Southeastern Conference) went on a 14-2 run in the final minutes after rallying from an six-point deficit early in the second half.

Tennessee rebounded after getting upset by Georgia to end a six-game winning streak.

Jarnell Stokes had 11 points and 12 rebounds but made just one of 10 free throw attempts. The rest of the team was 26 of 28.

Frankie Sullivan broke out of a prolonged slump with 24 points before fouling out for Auburn (9-21, 3-14), which has lost 14 of its last 15 games. It's the worst slump during a season for the Tigers since going 1-14 in 1942-43.

 Josh Wallace added a season-high 14 points, 12 in the second half.
