KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Jan. 17 (UPI) -- Wayne Chism had 18 points and 18 rebounds Thursday, boosting No. 7 Tennessee past 14th-ranked Vanderbilt 80-60.
After winning their first 16 games, the Commodores have lost two in a row. Vanderbilt (16-2, 1-2) was held under 70 points for the first time this season.
Vanderbilt came no closer than eight points in the second half and it took a 15-2 run to do that.
A 10-2 Tennessee surge just past the midway point of the first half put the Volunteers in control. They eventually built a 36-23 halftime lead.
It was Tennessee's 25th straight home win.
