KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 15 (UPI) -- Tyler Smith scored 21 points and Cameron Tatum added 19 Saturday to help 13h-ranked Tennessee open its season with a 114-75 win over Chattanooga.

Scotty Hopson had 17 points and Wayne Chism had 14 points and 13 rebounds for the Volunteers, who won their 33rd straight home game, tying the record for longest home winning streak in school history.
