KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Scotty Hopson had a career-high 25 points and No. 10 Tennessee set a school record for points in a game with a 124-49 victory over North Carolina-Asheville on Tuesday night.
It was coach Bruce Pearl's 100th win with the Volunteers and the 124 points broke Tennessee's previous single-game record of 121 points, last achieved by the Vols in the opening round of the 2007 NCAA tournament against Long Beach State.
Pearl is the second fastest Vols coach to reach the century mark. It took John Mauer 131 games in the late 1930s and early '40s to earn 100 wins.
The Vols (2-0) had their way with a Bulldogs team picked to finish second in the Big South Conference, hitting 64.9 percent of their shots from the field in the first half.
J.P. Primm led UNC-Asheville with 13 points.
