Lamonte Turner lifts Tennessee to first regular-season sweep against Kentucky ...

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Lamonte Turner has made a lot of big plays and clutch shots for Tennessee basketball this season.

UK’s Kevin Knox picked it up and finished a highly contested layup while being fouled to give Kentucky a 53-50 lead.

Bowden kept battling back for the Vols, scoring four straight before Williams made two free throws to tie the game 56-56 with 1:53 to play.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander put Kentucky ahead with a floater over a leaping Kyle Alexander, but then Turner hit his big 3-pointer.

Kentucky went on an 8-2 run sparked by a pair of big blocks on the defensive end and a Weynen Gabriel 3-pointer to take a 22-19 lead.

Williams had 10 points for Tennessee, eight of which came at the free-throw line, as the Wildcats did a strong job defensively in stopping the sophomore forward.

Rick Barnes said the Vols weren't surprised to see Kentucky consistently double team Williams, who averages more than 16 points per game.
