COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Two-time SEC player of the year Grant Williams scored six points in overtime and Tennessee held off Iowa 83-77 on Sunday to reach the Sweet 16 for the first time in three years.
Williams had a pair of free throws, two jumpers, and a strip in overtime that helped the Vols (31-5) pull it out and match their school record for wins in a season. He finished with 19 points and seven rebounds. Admiral Schofield scored 17 of his 19 in the Vols' blistering first half.
Tenth-seeded Iowa (23-12) fell behind by 25 points and nearly pulled off a monumental upset, sending it to overtime tied at 71, the first overtime game in this year's tournament.
Jordan Bohannon scored 18 for Iowa, which never led but managed to tie it twice after falling so far behind.
