Brandon Crump added 13 points, connecting on 4-of-8 from the field, and grabbed four rebounds before fouling out with 3:07 remaining. Freshman point guard C.J. Watson scored 10 in his first action as a Vol.
Former Pacific basketball player Corey Anders led EA Sports with 17 points, and former Kansas star Adonis Jordan added 12.
Tennessee outrebounded EA Sports 39-30 and hit 47 percent from the field, including 50 percent (12-of-24) in the second half. The Vols added 20-0f-25 percent shooting at the free throw line, including 6-of-7 in the final three minutes.
The Vols will play their final exhibition game Thursday 7:30pm EST against Worldwide before opening the regular season Nov. 22 against Gardner-Webb at Thompson-Boling Arena.
