NASHVILLE— Needing to improve its record and morale, Tennessee snapped out of its funk with an offensive performance that players and coach Rick Barnes had been waiting for all year.
Kareem Canty had a game-high 21 points and had a career-high eight rebounds for the second straight time as Auburn fell to Oklahoma State 74-63 Saturday in Auburn Arena in the Big 12/SEC Challenge. Freshman Horace Spencer added a career-high 11 rebounds and six blocks to go with six points.
Cinmeon Bowers muscled his way to rebounds and baskets, with a splash of outside shooting to get him going. Kareem Canty fired up shots from long range on a gimpy right ankle.
AUBURN— The Tigers rallied from a 17-point first-half deficit to earn its first win over a top-10 opponent in six years, defeating No. 7 Kentucky 66-61 in the SEC opener Sunday at Auburn Arena.
