KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- After watching Gonzaga fall behind Tennessee in the second half, coach Mark Few thought, 'Here we go again.'His team seemed on the verge of losing its fourth straight game for only the second time in Few's 10-year career with the Zags.
• Gonzaga got just its second win in its last six games, beating Tennessee for the second time in 39 days.
• The loss snapped a school-record 37-game home win streak for Tennessee.
• This was Bruce Pearl's first home loss vs. a non-conference team since becoming Tennessee's head coach.
