No. 9 Tennessee beats Auburn 81-55

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Wayne Chism had 12 points, 12 rebounds and six steals and No. 9 Tennessee shook off a slow start to beat Auburn 81-55 on Thursday night.

Bobby Maze and J.P. Prince both had 14 points for the Volunteers, while Scotty Hopson chipped in 11 and Kenny Hall 10.

Through the first half, Tennessee (13-2, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) looked sluggish after its 76-68 win over then top-ranked Kansas on Sunday. The teams were tied at 42 with 18:19 left when Maze hit a jumper in the lane to launch an 11-1 run that seemed to knock off the rust. The Vols started taking advantage inside, finishing with 48 points in the paint.

Renaldo Woolridge hit a 3-pointer as the shot clock expired to give Tennessee a 53-43 lead with 13:46 left. DeWayne Reed had 19 points for Auburn (9-8, 0-2), which was 10 of 24 from 3-point range in the first half.
