Josiah-Jordan James scored 22 points, Zakai Zeigler had a double-double and No. 9 Tennessee rolled past host LSU 77-56 on Saturday in Baton Rouge, La.

Zeigler had 12 points and 10 assists, and Julian Phillips and Tyreke Key each added 10 points for the Volunteers (16-3, 6-1 Southeastern Conference).

Tennessee welcomed back leading scorer Santiago Vescovi (shoulder) and fellow starting guard Key (illness) from one-game absences.

KJ Williams scored 16 points and Trae Hannibal added 10 to lead the Tigers (12-7, 1-6), who lost their sixth consecutive game. Williams, a fifth-year senior and transfer from Murray State, surpassed 2,000 points for his career after eclipsing 1,000 rebounds earlier in the season.

The lead changed hands four times in the first two minutes before a jumper by James produced the fifth lead change, giving Tennessee an 8-7 advantage.

The Tigers had five turnovers during a nine-minute field-goal drought. The Vols took a 15-7 lead on a jumper by Tobe Awaka.

Derek Fountain made two free throws for LSU's first points in more than seven minutes. Moments later, his layup ended the field-goal drought and Williams followed with a put-back to pull the Tigers within 16-13.

Vescovi made a 3-pointer for his first points and Phillips added four as Tennessee opened a 24-15 lead.

LSU got within seven before Key made two 3-pointers during a 10-0 run that gave the Vols a 17-point lead.

Williams made a jumper and James answered with a jumper with 6 seconds left to give Tennessee a 39-22 halftime lead.
