Antonio Barton scored 16 points to lead a balanced offensive attack as the Volunteers won their third straight by at least 27 points.

Jordan Clarkson's 13 points paced Missouri (21-10, 9-9), which dropped its fifth straight on the road. Jabari Brown (20.1 average) and Earnest Ross (13.9) struggled offensively, combining to shoot 2-for-16 from the field — including 0-of-7 from 3-point range — and scored just 10 points between them.

The Volunteers forged a 12-point lead in the game's first eight minutes. Things really got opened up when Missouri managed just four points in the final 5:57 of the half and Tennessee pushed the lead to 18 by halftime.
