Vols struggle to victory

Scotty Hopson scored 14 points to help No. 9 Tennessee pull away from Wyoming for a 77-58 victory Tuesday night in Knoxville, Tenn.

The Vols (8-1) struggled to slow down the normally high-scoring Cowboys (5-5) in the first half, but Tennessees defensive pressure and fast break offense wore Wyoming down in the second.

Leading by one point at halftime, the Vols ran out to a 57-49 lead with 14:45 to go on a steal and layup by Hopson. The sophomore also punctuated Tennessee's second-half surge with several fast break dunks.
