KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tobias Harris scored 17 points and grabbed 15 rebounds and Tennessee got its third win over a ranked opponent this season with a 104-84 rout of No. 21 Memphis on Wednesday night

Tennessee (10-4) came out hot, hitting three early 3-pointers. Trae Golden passed to Scotty Hopson for an alley-oop dunk that got the crowd loud and launched a 14-2 run that gave the Vols a 28-12 lead with 10:41 in the first half.

The Vols grabbed nine more rebounds than the Tigers in the first half by dominating the offensive boards and pushed their lead to 23 points on an underhanded layup by Jeronne Maymon with 4:45 before halftime.

Memphis (11-3) went on a 12-0 run that stretched from the end of the first half to the beginning of the second to cut Tennessee's lead to 10, but it was as close as the Tigers would get.

Will Coleman led Memphis with 17 points.
