Brandon Miller led the Crimson Tide with 15 points and 10 rebounds, but the freshman forward fouled out late in the second half. 

Tennessee snapped a two-game skid after a couple of heartbreaking losses at the buzzer all while breaking Alabama’s four-game winning streak. The Vols used their stifling defense to get the job done this time around. They held Alabama to a season-low 59 points (the Crimson Tide averages 83.4 points) on 35.4 percent shooting from the field. 

The Crimson Tide ranked No. 1 for the first time in 20 years this week after a dominant reign on conference opponents. Now, Alabama falls to 22-4 but still sits atop the SEC. Tennessee improves to 20-6 picking up the Vols’ fourth ranked win of the year.
