WATCH: Tennessee downs Kentucky thanks to clutch Lamonte Turner 3, ensuing dunk
Tennessee continued its run as one of the most surprising teams in college basketball on Tuesday night, beating Kentucky 61-59 at Rupp Arena. The Volunteers made several clutch plays down the stretch to secure the win.
Lamonte Turner’s 3-pointer was the headliner. Down two, watch as Turner calmly buries this long-range bomb with a hand in his grill:
That’s a big time shot, as was the scoop and score that followed. Tennessee improved to 18-5 with the win and continues to strengthen its NCAA tournament resume. Turner finished with a game-high 16 points, while Jordan Bowden chipped in 13 for the Vols.
Nailing clutch shots and playing lockdown defense can take you a long way in March. Tennessee is proving it can do both of those things.
