·1 min read

It all started with a common foul.

The in-state rivalry came to life as the second half wound down for the Tennessee Volunteers men's basketball team as they faced the Vanderbilt Commodores in Nashville.

The Vols were up 54-47 when Commodore Jordan Wright was fouled going for a layup.

The replay shows Vanderbilt's Myle Stute elbow Tennessee's Santiago Vescovi. Vescovi stumbled a bit before turning around and pushing Stute.

Tennessee's Uros Plavsic and Vanderbilt's Jamaine Mann turned toward Stute and Vescovi, before getting into a shoving match themselves.

After watching the instant replay, referees came back with four total technical fouls, one on each player involved: Stute, Vescovi, Plavsic and Mann.

PLAVSIC STARTING: Uros Plavsic starting in place of John Fulkerson for Tennessee basketball vs. Vanderbilt

JAMES INJURY: Josiah-Jordan James doubtful to return for Tennessee basketball vs. Vanderbilt

Take a look:

It was the fifth personal foul on Stute, who then fouled out of the game.

Vescovi also left the game after the slew of technicals, despite only have four fouls for the night.

Tennessee went on to win the game 68-60.
