Dedric Lawson had 24 points, eight in overtime, and freshman Devon Dotson added 17 points as No. 2 Kansas made a case for returning to the top of the polls with an 87-81 victory over No. 5 Tennessee in the finals of the NIT Season Tip-Off at Barclays Arena in Brooklyn on Friday.

Dotson followed a Lawson tip-in with a three-point play as the Jayhawks (5-0) scored the first five points in overtime for a 74-69 lead and never trailed while winning their 14th straight game against an AP Top 10 team.

Ty Jerome added 11 points and was the only other double-figure scorer for Virginia (6-0), which won despite shooting 25.9 percent in the second half and 37 percent overall.
