"Shout out to the Vol fans," Williams, Schofield thank fans for the support

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Tennessee basketball earned a hard fought road victory in a hostile environment Wednesday night at Ole Miss, 73-71.

The win keeps the Vols in a three-way tie for first place in the SEC.

Grant Williams and Admiral Schofield delivered a special message to Vol fans, especially those who traveled all the way to Oxford.

"Shout out to the Vol fans that showed up," Williams said in a post to social media.

Tennessee will now prepare for a rematch with rival Kentucky Saturday at Thompson Boling Arena. The Wildcats won in a blowout in their first meeting with the Vols, 86-69, in Lexington.
