Tennessee keeps tourney hopes alive routing Auburn 82-54

The Tennessee Volunteers are playing their best basketball when it means the most.  Tennessee blew out Auburn on the road Wednesday night 82-54 for its third straight victory.

The game was over before it started as the Volunteers jumped out to a 44-20 halftime lead and coasted from there.

Jarnell Stokes led the way with 20 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists. 

Stokes and the Vols dominated the paint out rebounding Auburn 43-25 and outscored them 40-18 in the paint.

The win moves Tennessee to 19-11 and 10-7 in the SEC; it also further builds the Vols post season resume. 

Tennessee finishes the regular season Saturday in Knoxville against the Missouri Tigers.
