Box Score

LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) - Scooter McFagdon scored 21 points and keyed big scoring runs in each half to lead Tennessee to a 69-57 victory over Stanford on Monday night in the opening round of the Maui Invitational.

The Volunteers (1-0) will play No. 4 North Carolina in Tuesday's semifinals. The Tar Heels (1-1) beat Brigham Young 86-50 on Monday.

McFagdon had seven points in the 11-0 run that gave the Volunteers a 17-6 lead midway through the first half.

Tennessee led 32-20 at halftime and it looked as if the Volunteers were pulling away for a laugher when they went on a 12-2 run that made it 51-31 with 11:50 to play. McFagdon had the last six points of that spurt.

But Stanford (1-1) held the Volunteers to just two field goals over the final 10 minutes and used a 14-0 burst to get to 53-47 with 5:39 left on a drive by Dan Grunfeld.

The Cardinal couldn't get any closer.

Major Wingate and C.J. Watson hit Tennessee's only two field goals of the last 10 minutes to make it 57-47. The Cardinal got within six one last time, but the Volunteers went 12-for-14 from the free-throw line over the final 2:38 - 5-for-6 by McFagdon in the final 44 seconds - to end any hopes of a Stanford comeback.

Watson had 16 points and Brandon Crump added 10 for Tennessee, which shot 48 percent from the field (24-for-50).

Grunfeld finished with 19 points for the Cardinal, while Matt Haryasz and Chris Hernandez each had 10.
