KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Chris Lofton scored 28 points, including
six 3-pointers, and No. 4 Tennessee routed South Carolina 89-56
today. JaJuan Smith fouled out with 17 points and four 3s, receiving a
hearty standing ovation from the crowd on his and Lofton's final
home games as Volunteers.

Tennessee finished its season with the first outright
Southeastern Conference title since 1967. The 33-point margin was the worst of the season for South Carolina, which suffered its second worst defeat when the Vols won 80-56 in Columbia in January. Mike Holmes led the Gamecocks with 15 points. Tennessee led by one at halftime, but used 62 percent shooting to take over.
