No. 13 Oregon beats Tennessee 69-65 in OT in Maui

LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) — Dillon Brooks hit a long 3-pointer with 22 seconds left in overtime and scored 17 points, lifting No. 13 Oregon to a 69-65 victory over Tennessee at the Maui Invitational on Tuesday.

Oregon (3-2) shot poorly in a loss to Georgetown in its Maui opener and continued to struggle on Day 2. The Ducks shot 34 percent, including 5 of 17 from 3-point range, and had 21 turnovers.

Brooks carried Oregon in his second game back from offseason foot surgery, playing well at both ends before hitting the long 3-pointer and 1 of 2 free throws to seal it.

Tennessee (1-3), which lost to No. 16 Wisconsin in its tournament opener, had 25 turnovers and shot 37 percent. The Vols managed to keep the Ducks within reach, though, tying the game at 56-all on Shembari Philips' two free throws with 30 seconds left.

Detrick Mostella led Tennessee with 22 points.

Brooks was limited eight points in 13 minutes in his return Monday night, leaving him frustrated. Ducks coach Dana Altman gave his star more playing time and the preseason All-American delivered, hitting 4 of 9 shots and 7 of 10 free throws in 25 minutes.

BIG PICTURE

Tennessee has a ways to go on both on both ends of the floor if it's going to be competitive once the conference season starts.

Oregon won ugly and is still trying to find its groove with Brooks back.
