Tennessee holds off Colgate to advance to NCAA second round
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Tennessee didn't let an underdog fight back again and pull off a shocker in the NCAA Tournament.
Last year the Volunteers advanced to the second round as a No. 3 seed and were stunned when 11th-seeded Loyola of Chicago hit a jump shot with 3.6 seconds left for a 63-62 win that sent the Ramblers and Sister Jean to the Sweet 16.
This time No. 2 seed Tennessee let No. 15 seed Colgate overcome a 14-point lead to tie the game midway through the second half and keep it close until the Vols pulled away late for a 77-70 win in the opening round Friday.MORE
