Tennessee's Grant Williams showed in overtime why he's one of the nation's top players, and Lamonte Turner led the defensive effort as the Vols survived 83-77 to advance to the Sweet 16. Iowa was on the 7 of tying the largest comeback (25 points) in NCAA tournament history. Hawkeyes guards Isaiah Moss and Jordan Bohannon matched Tennessee's talented backcourt, but Williams' six points and a steal in the extra session pushed the Vols forward to face Purdue.

Starting with Tyler Cook, Iowa has out-hustled and outplayed Tennessee throughout the second half. The best example came after an Isaiah Moss missed free throw, as Nicholas Baer fought to tap the ball out, setting up a Jordan Bohannon 3-pointer. After trailing by 25 points in the first half, the Hawkeyes have every chance to win this game. They're also two Tennessee fouls away from the double bonus with 7:55 left.

After 60 brutal minutes at the NCAA tournament, Iowa's Tyler Cook has announced himself in the second half. Cook has scored Iowa's first nine points of the half to reduce Tennessee's lead to 14 with 15:18 to play. Also notable: Tennessee stars Grant Williams and Admiral Schofield both have three fouls, and Iowa gets to the line a ton and can hit 3-pointers in bunches. Not over yet in Columbus.

Tennessee played the first half like a team with no interest in leaving this tournament early again. The Vols showed great inside-outside balance on offense (eight layups, one dunk, six 3-pointers) and stifled Iowa's Tyler Cook and Joe Wieskamp, who went 0-of-9 from the field combined. Tennessee hasn't even needed much from Grant Williams, as Admiral Schofield (17 points), Lamonte Turner (8 points), Jordan Bone (7 points, 3 assists) and others have proven too much.

Tennessee's offense has been excellent (52.2 percent shooting, two turnovers in 12:04), but its defense has been just as superb. The Vols are collapsing well on Luka Garza and Tyler Cook, the latter now 0-of-4 from the field. They are also preventing Joe Wieskamp from driving the baseline. The Hawkeyes aren't finding any offensive flow, and their defense, so good against Cincinnati in the second half, hasn't slowed down a much faster Tennessee team.

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Senior Writer 

A blistering start for Tennessee, which has made 8 of its first 12 shots, including two early 3-pointers from Admiral Schofield, who hit three in the final 4:05 Friday. Jordan Bone has been very effective penetrating the Hawkeyes' zone defense. Iowa's Tyler Cook, meanwhile, is off to another bad start, missing his first three shots with a turnover. Joe Wieskamp, who had 19 points in his NCAA tournament debut, has missed his first three shots.

Must be a strong free-throw shooter.
