Shembari Phillips and Grant Williams each scored 14 points Saturday as Tennessee cruised to an 81-58 victory over Georgia Tech.

Tennessee (3-3) stayed in control virtually the entire way and led by as many as 28 points over a Georgia Tech team that hadn't trailed in a game by more than eight points all season before Saturday.

Williams' 14 points represented a career high for the freshman forward. Phillips had five rebounds and a career-high seven assists to go along with his 14 points.

John Fulkerson scored 12 points and Robert Hubbs III added 10 points for Tennessee.

Quinton Stephens scored 15, Christian Matthews had 14 and Josh Okogie added 11 for Georgia Tech (4-3). Ben Lammers had 10 points and 14 rebounds.

Georgia Tech played without usual starting guard Justin Moore, who stayed in Atlanta because of a stomach virus. Josh Heath, who made 15 starts in 2015-16, started in Moore's place and scored just two points while shooting 0 for 7.
