AUBURN, Ala., Jan. 18 (UPI) -- Quan Prowell fueled an 18-point run that carried the Auburn Tigers to an 83-80 upset of No. 24 Tennessee Wednesday night in a Southeastern Conference game.
Tennessee (13-5, 1-2 SEC) led, 66-52, midway through the second half when Auburn (12-7, 2-2) started its comeback.
Frank Tolbert and Rasheem Barrett each had field goals before Quantez Robertson connected on a three-point shot. Prowell scored four straight points and Barrett completed a three-point play to pull the Tigers even at 66-66 with 5:07 left.
Prowell hit a three-point shot and Josh Dollar's free throw completed the run for a 70-66 Auburn lead with 3:30 to go. Four late Prowell free throws -- two because of a technical foul on Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl -- iced the game.
Tolbert finished with 24 points and Prowell had 21 for Auburn.
