KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jordan McRae scored 24 points and shot 6 of 8 from 3-point range Saturday as Tennessee trounced South Carolina 72-53 to beat the Gamecocks for the 13th consecutive time.

South Carolina (8-15, 1-9 Southeastern Conference) hasn't beaten Tennessee since an 81-64 home triumph over the Volunteers on Feb. 17, 2007.

Tennessee (15-8, 6-4) bounced back from a 64-60 loss at Vanderbilt on Wednesday to win for the third time in its last four games. Next up for Tennessee is a home game Tuesday with No. 3 Florida, which buried the Vols 67-41 in Gainesville on Jan. 25.

South Carolina lost for the ninth time in its last 10 games.

Jarnell Stokes had 17 points and eight rebounds for Tennessee, while Jeronne Maymon had 10 points and eight rebounds. Sindarius Thornwell led South Carolina with 15 points.
