Zags Dominate OT to Take Down Tennessee, 89-79
Jan. 7, 2009
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Matt Bouldin tied a career high with 26 points to help Gonzaga upset No. 15 Tennessee 89-79 in overtime on Wednesday night.
With 26 seconds left, Tyler Smith hit a layup for Tennessee to tie the game at 73. Bouldin missed a shot at the other end of the floor, and Wayne Chism came up with the ball in the ensuing scramble, but couldn't get it to the Vols' end of the floor before time expired.
It was all Gonzaga (9-4) in the extra period, as Austin Daye hit a 3-pointer and four free throws to help the Zags grab their second win over the Vols for the season. Gonzaga won 83-74 on Nov. 30 in the Old Spice Classic championship in Orlando, Fla.
Daye had 20 points, and Josh Heytvelt added 15 points and grabbed 12 rebounds.
Gonzaga's win broke a 37-game home winning streak for Tennessee (9-4).
