|#1 Kansas Falls at Tennessee
|KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) --Scotty Hopson had 17 points and No. 16 Tennessee, with a lineup thinned by suspensions, dismissals and injuries beat No. 1 Kansas 76-68 Sunday night.
Kansas' Tyshawn Taylor stole the ball and dished it to Brady Morningstar, who hit a 3-pointer with 1:14 left to cut Tennessee's lead to 71-68.
Skylar McBee, one of three walk-ons who played for Tennessee, answered with his own 3 as the shot clock expired.
Sherron Collins, who bailed the Jayhawks (14-1) out of a near loss to Cornell on Wednesday, couldn't help this time, missing three shots before time expired. Collins led Kansas with 22 points.
Kansas couldn't find its composure in front of 21,936 Tennessee fans. The Jayhawks turned the ball over 16 times, while Tennessee (12-2) had only eight turnovers.
