Vols' winning streak ends at Florida


Florida (13-9, 7-3 SEC) ended Tennessee's (18-4, 7-2 SEC) four-game win-streak Wednesday at the O'Connell Center in Gainesville, Florida.

Zakai Zeigler (15), Olivier Nkamhoua (11) and Santiago Vescovi (11) scored 10-plus points for Tennessee. The Vols were 28 percent from the field, Tennessee's lowest shooting percentage during Southeastern Conference play this season.

Tennessee is 8-3 versus the Gators under head coach Rick Barnes. Barnes' first season at Tennessee was the 2015-16 campaign.

The Vols will next host No. 23 Auburn on Saturday at Thomspon-Boling Arena. Tipoff between the Vols and Tigers is slated for 2 p.m. EST. ESPN will televise the SEC matchup between Barnes and former Tennessee head coach Bruce Pearl.
