Yves Pons scores 17 as No. 18 Tennessee demolishes No. 15 Kansas, 80-61

The Tennessee Volunteers dismantled the fifteenth-ranked Kansas Jayhawks, 80-61, in a game they led since the opening tip. Yves Pons lead the charge scoring 17 points and five rebounds as four Volunteers scored in double figures. The Jayhawks looked like they were poised to make a run opening the second half with back-to-back baskets from Ochai Agbaji, but Tennessee thwarted that attempt and blew the game open with a 9-0 run that eventually ballooned to a 26-point advantage.
