Admiral Schofield with 19 points to help No. 2 seed Tennessee hold off a second-half rally by No. 15 seed Colgate to get a 77-70 win in the NCAA Tournament opening round Friday afternoon.

Jordan Bone added 16 and Jordan Bowden 14 for Tennessee.

The Raiders erased Tennessee's 42-30 halftime lead with an 11-2 run, tied the score midway through the second half, and kept the game close after that.

Schofield hit back-to-back 3-pointers to give Tennessee a cushion with 45 seconds left, and Bone and Schofield followed with a pair of foul shots each to extend the lead as Colgate ran out of time.

Jordan Burns had 32 points for Colgate, the most allowed by a single Tennessee opponent this season. The Raiders' 15 3-pointers matched the most allowed by the Vols.

The Vols will take on Iowa on Sunday.
