KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Tennessee guard Admiral Schofield earned SEC Player of the Week with a dominant performance Saturday at Memphis.

The 6-foot-6, 241 pound senior registered his first double-double of the season with 29 points and 11 rebounds against the Tigers.

Schofield shot 8-of-12 from the field and 4-of-8 from the three point line.

Schofield is the first Vol to post back-to-back games with at least 25 points since 2016.

The Illinois native has scored 20 points or more in five of the Vols' last six games after posting just eight 20-point games in his career in Knoxville.

Schofield's performance Saturday was his second straight game scoring 20 points or more in the second half.
