NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ Vincent Yarbrough scored 20 points without missing a shot and No. 22 Tennessee broke a five-game losing streak with a 78-70 win Saturday over Vanderbilt, the last team the Volunteers beat.

It was just the third win in 11 games for Tennessee (19-9, 6-8 Southeastern Conference) and just the second win this month, the last coming over the Commodores three weeks ago in Knoxville.

Vanderbilt (15-12, 4-10) is the only team the Volunteers have beaten since Jan. 20. The victory also ended a string of five straight road losses in SEC games for Tennessee.

Tony Harris added 14 points for Tennessee. Jon Higgins and Ron Slay each scored 12. Yarbrough was 7-of-7 from the floor and 6-of-6 from the foul line. He also led all rebounders with 10.

Vanderbilt was led by Chuck Moore's 16 points. Billy Richmond added 13 and Greg LaPoint had 11.

Tennessee led by 11 points early in the second half before Vanderbilt ran off eight straight to pull within 41-38. The Vols responded by scoring the next nine points for a 50-38 lead with 11:43 left.

Vanderbilt got back within six at 64-58 before LaPointe missed twice from point-blank range and Yarbrough scored on a 3-on-1 break at the other end for an eight-point Tennessee lead with 4:53 to go.

Vanderbilt would get no closer than six points the rest of the way as Tennessee hit 10 of 12 free throws in the final couple of minutes.

The victory keeps the Vols' diminished NCAA tournament hopes alive with two regular-season games and the SEC tournament left before the field is selected.
