Knoxville, TN-A strong inside-outside game led by Jarnell Stokes and Antonio Barton guided the Vols to a 67-48 victory over Georgia on Tuesday night at Thompson-Boling Arena.

Stokes dominated in the post on both ends of the floor as he had 20 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks along with three assists and a steal. The junior notched his SEC-leading 15 double-double and shot 9-of-13 from the floor.

Barton caught fire from long distance to give the Vols a weapon from beyond the arc. He made 4-of-7 from 3-point range to finish with 12 points. Barton had made just 5-of-38 over his last 11 games. He had made a total of two 3-pointers in his last seven contests.

The Vols moved to 16-10 overall and 7-6 in the SEC while Georgia saw its four-game winning streak come to an end. The Bulldogs are now 14-11 and 8-5 in the league.

Barton’s big night made up for a off night from the Vols’ leading scorer Jordan McRae who had 11 points on just 2-of-5 from the floor. The Georgia native came into the averaging 20.4 points per game in SEC action.

Josh Richardson added 10 for Tennessee, his sixth time in double-figures in seven contests.
