The Tennessee basketball jumped five spots to No. 4 in Monday’s AP poll after notching back-to-back road wins last week. The Vols beat Mississippi State 70-59 on Tuesday night in Starkville before beating LSU 77-56 in Baton Rouge on Saturday afternoon.

The Vols caught fire from the three-point line against LSU, shooting 12 of 32 from long range to improve to 16-3 in the season and 6-1 in the SEC game. The win was their first at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center since 2015. The Tigers had won six of their last eight games, with the Vols starting Saturday.

Senior Guard Josiah Jordan James led the 21-point win with a game-high 22 points. He finished 9 of 16 from the field and 4 of 6 from the three-point line, plus seven rebounds, three steals and one assist.

The Volunteers faced Mississippi State in their first game of the week. They were 8-of-9 of three in the second half to recover from their first conference loss of the season to Kentucky. All with two of their best three-pointers – Senior Guards Santiago Vescovi and Tyreke Key — not available for the game. Vescovi sustained a left shoulder injury against the Wildcats while Key felt sick before the game Rick Barnes.

The second half started with a bang after a basketball first half in which the offense was optional. After a combined 46 points in the opening frame, the two teams scored 10 each directly from goal for a combined 20 points in the first four minutes. The Vols went on to outplay the Bulldogs 47-36 in the second half to put them away.
