Vols Fall Just Short of Michigan After Controversial Charging Call

Tennessee’s magical NCAA tournament run ended in a 73-71 loss to second seeded Michigan on Friday night.  The Vols appeared to have a chance at the winning basket when Jarnell Stokes was whistled for a very questionable charging violation with just six seconds left in the game.

The Vols were unable to score  on a three quarter court desperation attempt by Jordan McRae after a missed free throw by  Stauskas and the thrilling 2014 Tennessee Volunteer basketball season came to a close.
