LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP)—Jordan McRae scored 25 points, Trae Golden added 17 and Tennessee rolled over Chaminade 86-60 in the seventh-place game of the Maui Invitational on Wednesday.
Tennessee (3-2) rebounded from a pair of difficult losses in Maui by breezing past the Division II Silverswords. The Vols took control with a big opening run and didn’t let up, hitting 15 3-pointers while shooting 57 percent.
Tennessee did it without much help from forward Jeronne Maymon, who played just 2 minutes after he had 32 points and a tournament-record 20 rebounds against No. 8 Memphis. Cameron Tatum added 12 points for the Vols, who had a 15-0 advantage on the break.
Chaminade (3-3) closed out last year’s tournament with a win over Oklahoma, but there wasn’t much chance of another upset.
The Silverswords had a hard time matching up with Tennessee’s size and athleticism, shooting 35 percent in their third straight lopsided loss.
