PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) - Jarnell Stokes scored 20 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Jordan McRae added 16 points and Tennessee beat Xavier on Friday at the Battle 4 Atlantis, earning a trip to the tournament's fifth-place game.

Jeronne Maymon scored 14 for the Volunteers (4-2), whose quarterfinal loss to Texas-El Paso ended at 12:16 a.m. Friday, less than 12 hours before the team returned to the ballroom-turned-arena at the Atlantis Resort for a consolation matchup.

Xavier (5-2) was led by Matt Stainbrook's 10 points. The Musketeers beat Tennessee 67-63 on Nov. 12, but struggled to get anything going on Friday. They'll play in the seventh-place game Saturday afternoon.
