Tennessee earned their first SEC victory of the season this evening against the Missouri Tigers by a score of 69-59 in an ugly, hard-fought game in Columbia. The match-up was a nail-biter that left both fans of the Volunteers and Tigers at the edge of their seats, however, the game itself was sloppy and very low scoring; fertile ground for a Cuonzo Martin coached basketball team.

Despite the game’s tempo playing directly into the hands of the former Volunteers’ head coach, Tennessee was able to impress with a decent offensive performance given the circumstances. They were led in scoring by Jordan Bowden, who seems to have finally recovered from his slump, with 13-points, followed by Santiago Vescovi with 12.
