KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Santiago Vescovi scored 17 points, including a critical 3-pointer and two big free throws in overtime, as No. 18 Tennessee pulled out a 66-60 victory over Mississippi.

Olivier Nkamhoua added 13 points for the Volunteers, who never during regulation but outscored Ole Miss 15-9 in the extra period. Josiah-Jordan James scored 10.

Tye Fagan had 23 points to lead the Rebels. Down five players — two injured and three in COVID-19 protocol — Mississippi started strong but couldn’t hang on.
