ATLANTA - Freshman Bashaara Graves scored 18 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, and fellow Tennessee forward Cierra Burdick added a career-high 16 points as the No. 20 Lady Volunteers beat No. 22 Georgia Tech 71-54 to spoil the Yellow Jackets’ debut in McCamish Pavilion. The Yellow Jackets (0-1) trailed 45-30 at halftime before starting the second half with a 13-0 run. The Lady Vols (1-1) bettered that with an 18-0 knockout streak to even their record in their second game since under new head coach Holly Warlick. Junior Tyaunna Marshall scored 18 and Dawnn Maye added 12 for Georgia Tech in its new on-campus arena. Tennessee lost 80-71 Friday at Chattanooga after the Mocs broke a halftime tie with a 52-point second half in which they shot 56.3 percent. The Lady Vols had 26 turnovers and just six assists in that game. Sunday, the Lady Vols had 17 of each, and it was the Yellow Jackets who were loose with the ball in their first game. Tech had 20 turnovers and just eight assists. Without a starter back from the team that lost an NCAA regional final to eventual national champion Baylor last spring, Tennessee defended more passionately at Georgia Tech. The Lady Vols also dominated the paint in the first half. They led 45-30 at intermission on the strength of 15 points by Burdick and 14 points and eight rebounds from Graves. The Yellow Jackets, however, rallied furiously at the start of the second half. Marshall got to the rim for seven points during their 13-0 run, and Maye’s layup with 15:25 remaining pulled Georgia Tech within 45-43. A jumper by Jasmine Jones ended Tennessee’s scoreless streak a minute later and started an 18-0 run for the visitors. When Georgia Tech coach MaChelle Joseph called for a timeout with 9 minutes left, the Lady Vols led 60-43 after Ariel Massengale’s layup off of Tennessee’s ninth steal of the game. The Yellow Jackets to that point had seen Marshall, Maye and Wallace -- two returning starters and a sophomore who become a starter late last season and then made 19 3-point shots in Tech’s three NCAA tournament games -- take 40 of their team’s first 51 shots and score 38 of the first 43 points. When Hamilton-Carter scored from point-blank range with 6:46 left in the game, that ended a scoreless streak of 8:38, but the Jackets trailed 63-45.

MEDIA INFO

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - Tennessee opened the 2012-13 season with a tough 80-71 defeat at Chattanooga at McKenzie Arena. The Lady Vols were led by Meighan Simmons, who scored 23 points - 21 in the second half - as the Lady Vols attempted to rally. Sophomore Isabelle Harrison had a double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds. Freshman Bashaara Graves had 14 points and eight rebounds in her debut. The loss came in the debut of Holly Warlick as head coach of the Lady Vols (0-1). A long-time assistant, Warlick replaced Hall of Famer Pat Summitt, who stepped down as coach during the offseason after 38 years at the helm of the Lady Vols. The Lady Mocs (1-0) were led by Taylor Hall, who had 24 points and nine rebounds as Chattanooga beat the Lady Vols for the first time in 20 meetings. UTC’s last win over Tennessee came in 1973. UTC had three others in double-figures: Alex Black (14), Kayla Christopher (11) and Ashlen Dewart (10). With the game tied at 28 at halftime, Chattanooga opened the second half outscoring the Lady Vols 15-7, as they took a 43-35 lead on a Dewart jumper with 16:13 left in the game. The Lady Mocs continued to maintain the lead throughout the second half. The lead moved to 10, at 52-42, on Black jumper with 11:37 left in the half. Tennessee battled back to within six (53-47) and seven on several occasions, but was never able to overcome the deficit. Freshman Jasmine Jones hit a jumper with 1:11 left to cut the margin to seven, 72-65, forcing UTC to call a timeout. The Lady Mocs made their free throws down the stretch to secure the win. Chattanooga made all eight foul shots in the final minute for the nine-point win. The Lady Vols stood tied at 28 all at halftime as Massengale sank a halfcourt shot at the buzzer. Graves had nine points and seven rebounds in the first half of her debut as a collegian. Chattanooga went on a 13-0 run to rally from a 20-11 deficit to lead 24-20 with 1:52 left in the first half as Kylie Lambert made a free throw. The Lady Vols were held scoreless for more than six minutes before Graves hit a layup with 1:31 left in the first half. Tennessee pounded UTC on the glass in the first half, 25-12, but committed 17 turnovers to even out the advantage.

Game 4

#24/20 UT vs. Rice // Nov. 15, 2012

CORAL GABLES, Fla. - Bashaara Graves had 20 points, Ariel Massengale hit big free throws at the end and the No. 24/20 Lady Vols survived No. 23 Miami’s two big second-half runs to defeat the Hurricanes, 79-67. With the win, UT ended Miami’s 41-game home winning streak. After storming out of the gate to a 46-21 halftime advantage thanks to Graves and Andraya Carter, Tennessee (3-1) watched Miami (2-1) mount a huge comeback in the second half as the Hurricanes climbed to within six points. Graves scored 10 points in each half to lead the Lady Vols with 20 points to go with six rebounds. Carter did much of her work from long distance, totaling 16 points on 4-of-5 shooting from 3-point range and 4-of-4 work from the free-throw line. Massengale added 14 points off the bench, going a perfect 10-of-10 from the charity stripe and dishing out a team-best five assists. Cierra Burdick led UT with 10 rebounds. Trailing 51-25 three minutes out of halftime, Miami went on 18-7 run climb back into the game. Maria Brown sparked the run on a jumper in the paint at 16:14 and Michelle Woods scored Miami’s next nine points. With 9:35 left in the game and Tennessee’s lead at 58-43, the Lady Vols responded by trading baskets with the Hurricanes over the next minute and a half to keep the lead at 16 points. Then, with 6:28 remaining, UM’s Morgan Stroman hit a jumper on a fast break that opened a 14-4 run that pulled the Hurricanes to within 71-65 with 2:30 left. UT closed out the game with an 8-2 run thanks to Massengale’s clutch shooting at the line (6-of-6) in the final minute to halt Miami’s comeback attempt. At the half, Tennessee had a 46-21 advantage with Carter (11 points) and Graves (10 points) leading the way. UT never trailed in the first half, but the Hurricanes stayed within six points for the first 16:40 of the game. Up 23-17 with 6:53 until halftime, the Lady Vols broke loose as a layup by Massengale sparked a 23-4 run to close out the period. Tennessee’s defense limited the Hurricanes and minimized their outside game. Miami shot just 31.9 percent from the floor and a 19.0 percent (4-of-21) from beyond the arc. The Canes also struggled from the free-throw line, hitting just 59.4 percent (19-of-32). UT shot 42.1 percent from the floor and went 6-of-17 from 3-point range. The Lady Vols also shot a crisp 80.6 percent from the stripe (25-of-31).

KNOXVILLE - Senior Kamiko Williams came up huge on both ends of the court to lead the #16/14 Lady Vols to an 88-81 overtime win over in-state foe Middle Tennessee State for UT’s fifth win in a row before 10,768 at Thompson-Boling Arena. Williams’ clutch shooting and defense spurred the Lady Vols in the second half and overtime. She finished with nine points, five rebounds and three assists to go along with numerous intangible plays. Junior Meighan Simmons topped the scoring charts for Tennessee (5-1), as she netted 19 points. Freshman Bashaara Graves, who has scored in double-figures in all six of her college games, had 15 points. She also corralled 12 rebounds for her second double-double in her rookie season. Sophomore Isabelle Harrison scored 10 points and swatted a career-high six blocks. Tennessee used a 10-0 overtime run keyed by Williams’ all-around play to secure the win. Sophomore Cierra Burdick put UT ahead for good, 79-77, with a pair of free throws with 2:04 left in OT. Then Williams’ stole the ensuing possession from MTSU and set up Simmons for a layup with 1:52 left to move the lead to 81-77.

Harrison’s bank shot was the final dagger finishing the run of 10 points in a row.

The Lady Vols used a 10-2 run to comeback from a 63-60 deficit to lead 70-65 on a Simmons jumper. Williams nailed a 3-pointer with 55 seconds left to put the Lady Vols up five at 73-68.

KNOXVILLE - In the first meeting between longtime foes in five years, No. 16/14 Tennessee dominated No. 22 North Carolina, 102-57. UT handed UNC its first loss of the season before 11,342 at Thompson-Boling Arena. The Lady Vols (6-1) extended their winning streak to six games while the Tar Heels fell to 7-1 overall. Junior Meighan Simmons, who scored her 1,000th career point in the game, led all scorers with a career-high 33. Her point total was the most since All-American Candace Parker scored 34 vs. Notre Dame on March 30, 2008. Sophomore Isabelle Harrison scored a career-high 18 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for her third double-double this season. Freshman Bashaara Graves tallied 15 points, as she has scored in doublefigures in all seven of her college games. Sophomore Cierra Burdick netted 15 and grabbed 10 rebounds for her secondcareer double-double. Taber Spani had 10 points. The 45-point margin of victory over a ranked team was the largest since UT beat No. 22 Illinois, by 49 points (111-62) in Hawaii on Nov. 25, 2000. The 102 points vs. the 22nd-ranked Tar Heels were the most by UT against a ranked team since beating No. 15 DePaul, 102-68, on Jan. 2, 2008. The Lady Vols opened the game with a 10-2 lead and never looked back. A Simmons’ 3-pointer just over seven minutes into the action put the Lady Vols ahead by 10 at 17-7 and UT never let UNC cut the margin below double-figures for the remainder of the game. Tennessee led by as many as 46 on a 3-pointer by Burdick with 44 seconds left in the second half. The closest the Tar Heels got in the second half was 16 points on two occasions, but UT opened up the jets midway in the second half to blow open the game. Tennessee controlled the boards outrebounding UNC, 54-40 with Harrison leading the way with 11 boards. The Lady Vols closed the first half on a 14-4 run to lead 49-28 at intermission. Simmons had 22 points in the first half on the way to her career day. Simmons became the 37th Tennessee player to score 1,000 career points with a free throw with 11:44 left in the first half. She achieved the plateau in just her 80th college game. Lady Vols went on an 8-0 run capped by a Taber Spani 3-pointer as the shot clock expired to put Tennessee ahead, 22-7, with 12:36 left in the first half. Sunday’s game was the first meeting since Lady Vols beat UNC, 83-79, five years ago to the date on Dec. 2, 2007.

The Lady Vols missed their first 11 shots of the game before scoring for the first time, with 13:05 left in the first half, on a Cierra Burdick jumper to make it 17-2. Tennessee tried to climb out of the early hole, but it proved to be too tall of a mountain. UT cut the deficit to 12 at 21-9 and 23-11, but Baylor continued its sharp shooting in the first half and regained a 21-point lead at 32-11 on a 3-pointer by Hayden with 6:49 left in the first half.

KNOXVILLE - After suffering back-to-back losses to the No. 3 and No. 1 teams in the nation, Tennessee returned to the win column with a 75-40 victory over Davidson at Thompson-Boling Arena. The No. 13/15 Lady Vols used an 18-2 run midway through the first half to break an 11-11 tie and never looked back. The Lady Vols’ front court dominated, as freshman Bashaara Graves and sophomores Cierra Burdick and Isabelle Harrison combined for 39 points and 29 rebounds for Tennessee (8-3). With a game-high 16 points, Graves has tallied double figures in 10 of her 11 collegiate games. She also grabbed 10 rebounds for her fifth double-double of the season. Burdick had an even 10 points and 10 rebounds for her second-career doubledouble. Harrison tallied 13 points and corralled nine boards. It was the second time this season Tennessee had two players with doubledoubles, the other coming in the win over North Carolina. Tennessee dominated in many areas of the game. The Lady Vols held significant advantages in rebounding (48-26), points off turnovers (26-5), second-chance points (22-0), points in the paint (40-18), fastbreak points (10-0) and bench points (35-12). Up 20 at halftime, Tennessee outscored Davidson 34-19 in the second half to run away with the win. The Lady Vols opened the second half on a 9-0 run to take a 50-21 lead on a Harrison jumper with 16:20 left in regulation. Davidson missed seven shots in a row and didn’t score for a 6:33 span bridging the halves. Tennessee doubled Davidson, 54-27, after a steal and layup by Ariel Massengale with 11 minutes left in the game. The lead ballooned to 30 on a Kamiko Williams putback with 6:37 left in the game, making it 63-33. Tennessee had its second-best defensive game this season in terms of scoring defense, allowing just 40 to the Wildcats. It was the third time UT held an opponent to less than 50 points. It was also Tennessee’s fourth win by 35 or more points. The Lady Vols went on a 12-0 run spanning six minutes as Tennessee took a 23-11 lead before the Wildcats broke an 0-for-6 drought from the floor on a Jasmine Calin jumper with 7:21 left in the first half. Harrison had three of UT’s six baskets on the spurt. Tennessee started a new lineup featuring a pair of freshman making their firstcareer starts in Jasmine Jones and Nia Moore. It was the first meeting between Tennessee and Davidson.

KNOXVILLE - Tennessee beat Rutgers for the ninth time in a row, as the Lady Vols used tenacious defense on the way to a 66-47 victory. The victory was the 1,200th in the illustrious history of Lady Vol basketball, the most of any women’s basketball program in the nation. UT is now 1,200-268 (.817) all-time in its 68th season. The Lady Vols (9-3) jumped ahead early and led wire-to-wire with their second convincing win in a row. Tennessee had a double-figure lead for the final 33 minutes. Tennessee limited the Scarlet Knights (8-4) to just 34.6 percent from the floor in the game, including 22.2 percent in the first half. Sophomore Isabelle Harrison tied her career high with 18 points. She grabbed 11 rebounds for her fourth career double-double. Harrison also had a career-high six steals, the most by a Lady Vol since Alicia Manning had six vs. Old Dominion last season. Freshman Bashaara Graves hauled down a career-high 14 rebounds to go with 11 points for her sixth double-double of the season -- tying for the most among any player in the SEC this season. Junior Meighan Simmons added 15 points. Tennessee has responded with back-to-back efforts that have pleased head coach Holly Warlick and her staff after dropping consecutive games to No. 3 Baylor and No. 1 Stanford. Combined with the 75-40 win over Davidson on Friday, the Lady Vols have outscored opponents 141-87, a margin of 27 points per game. After holding a 20-point halftime lead, the Lady Vols continued to stand stout in the second half on both ends of the court. The 47 points were the second-fewest Rutgers has scored in the 22-game series between the teams that dates to 1979. The all-time low of 46 came in the 2007 National Championship game when UT beat Rutgers, 59-46. Tennessee dominated on both ends throughout the first half, building a 33-13 lead at halftime. The Lady Vols shot 45.2 from the floor and limited Rutgers to 22.2 as the Scarlet Knights didn’t make a 3-pointer (0-of-6). UT also forced Rutgers into 14 turnovers, as Harrison had four of the Lady Vols’ eight steals. It was sixth time this season the Lady Vols held an opponent to less than 25 percent from the floor in a half. In allowing just 13 points, the Lady Vols had their best defensive effort in a first half this season. Twice last year UT limited foes to 13 points at intermission. Tennessee took control of the game early, building an 18-4 lead midway through the first half thanks to a parade of layups. The Lady Vols had 14 of their first 18 points in the paint.

KNOXVILLE - Tennessee scored the first nine points of the second half and led the remainder of the way as the No. 12/13 Lady Vols knocked off No. 10/11 Georgia, 79-66 before 12,319 at Thompson-Boling Arena. A pair of freshman keyed the Tennessee (11-3, 2-0 SEC) win as Bashaara Graves scored a career-high 23, making 8-of-11 from the floor. Jasmine Jones also had a career-high with 12 points as she saw significant minutes with Isabelle Harrison in foul trouble. Graves’ point total was the most by a Lady Vols’ freshman since Meighan Simmons had 23 vs. Stanford on Dec. 19, 2010. Graves has scored in double-figures in 12 of her 14 games as a freshman. As a junior on Sunday, Simmons scored 11 of her 16 in the second half and finished 4-of-5 from 3-point range. Taber Spani had 11 and grabbed seven rebounds. Georgia suffered just its second loss of the season as the Lady Bulldogs fell to 13-2 and 1-1 in the league. Jasmine James led UGA with 18. Khaalidah Miller added 14. Tennessee moved to 6-2 against ranked teams this season. It was also the Lady Vols first win over a Top 10 team this season and first since thrashing No. 7 Kentucky last February. Tennessee opened the second half with nine consecutive points to take control of the game with a lead 49-42 after a fastbreak layup by Spani four minutes into the half. The Lady Vols led the remainder of the way. Georgia missed its first eight shots of the second half as Tennessee buckled up on defense and crashed the glass. The Lady Vols hauled down 10 of the first 12 rebounds in the second half. Overall, UT outrebounded UGA, 46-29 with a 28-9 second-half margin. The Lady Bulldogs cut the deficit to two, 52-50, on a jumper by Jasmine Jones with 12:24 left in the half. But, Tennessee responded with the next five points punctuated by a Simmons 3-pinter with 11:26 left. The run expanded to 14-3 on back-toback layups by Graves with nine minutes left. That gave the Lady Vols a lead of 13 points, 66-53 with 8:53 left. The lead ballooned to 19 with three minutes left on Simmons’ fourth 3-pointer of the game, making it 79-60. Tennessee had three 9-0 runs in the second half. The Lady Vols outscored Georgia, 39-24 in the second half and held the Lady Bulldogs to just 29 percent from the floor including 25 percent from 3-point range. A highly-entertaining first half saw both teams shoot well and play up tempo as Georgia led 42-40 at intermission. Graves led all scorers with 12 in the first half. The Lady Vols now lead the all-time series, 45-15 with a 19-4 mark in Knoxville. Tennessee has won the last five meetings and 13 of the last 14 overall.

SEC

COLUMBIA, S.C. - A 28-2 run in the second half spurred #12/13 Tennessee to a 73-53 victory at #18/15 South Carolina. In a game that was not separated by more than five points for the first 25 minutes, Tennessee exerted its power on both ends of the floor to secure a win in its SEC opener and move to 10-3 overall. It was Holly Warlick’s first win in the SEC as head coach of the Lady Vols. Sophomore Isabelle Harrison had a monster night, as she scored a career-high tying 18 points and corralled a career-high 14 rebounds for her fifth double-double of the season. She also swatted a career-high seven blocks. Four Lady Vols scored in double-figures overall as Harrison was joined by Taber Spani, who had a season-high 18 points, making 4-of-5 on 3-pointers. Ariel Massengale (13) and Meighan Simmons (10) also tallied 10-plus. Tennessee has won every SEC opener since 1998. South Carolina (12-2, 0-1) suffered its second loss of the season as the Gamecocks shot just 29 percent from the floor. Tiffany Mitchell scored 14 to lead USC. Ashley Bruner added 12. Down 40-39, Tennessee scored 14 points in a row to take a commanding 5340 lead with 11:30 left in the game. The teams traded baskets and the lead on four consecutive possessions as Simmons’ layup put UT ahead for good, 41-40 with 16 minutes left in the half. A Harrison lay-up and a pair of free throws by Simmons gave Tennessee a five-point lead at 45-40. Spani took a feed from Massengale to move the margin to seven. A swooping layup and a jumper by Simmons extended the run to a dozen points in a row. Kamiko Williams scored the first bench points of the game -- for either team -- on a runner for UT’s 13th and 14th points in a row. Tennessee led 53-40 with 11:33 left in the game. South Carolina missed 11 field goals in a row as the Lady Vols took control of the game. Tennessee’s defense kept USC off the board for 5:06. South Carolina’s struggles continued as the Gamecocks made just one of 22 shots as Tennessee’s run burst to 28-2 as Spani canned back-to-back 3-pointers to put UT ahead 67-42 with 4:44 left in the game. Tennessee outrebounded South Carolina, 30-19 in the second half after grabbing just nine rebounds in the first half. The Lady Vols held a one-point edge at halftime, 32-31, as neither team led by more than five points in the first half. Harrison had 12 points in the first half alone as Tennessee shot 55 percent from the floor. Thursday’s game was Tennessee’s first without sophomore Cierra Burdick, who suffered a broken bone in her right hand on Dec. 31. The Lady Vols had just nine healthy players suited up for the game.

KNOXVILLE - The #9 Tennessee Lady Vols routed Missouri, 84-39, in the first meeting between the teams as SEC foes before 10,967 at Thompson-Boling Arena. The win was UT’s fifth wire-to-wire win this season as the Lady Vols moved to 12-3 overall and 3-0 in the SEC. Missouri dropped to 12-5, 1-2 in the SEC. The win by 45 points was the largest for the Lady Vols in a conference game since UT thumped Alabama by 65 points, 110-45 on Jan. 6, 2011. Meighan Simmons led the Lady Vols in scoring with 18 points. Isabelle Harrison posted her sixth double-double of the season with 12 points and a career-high 15 rebounds. Bashaara Graves tallied 16 points for her 12th game this season in doublefigures. Taber Spani chipped in 11. Tennessee limited Missouri to just 19.7 percent from the floor. That is the best defensive effort for the Lady Vols since holding Arkansas to 18.2 percent last season. The Lady Vols forced 22 turnovers while committing just six. Missouri made just four 2-point shots in the game on 30 attempts. The Tigers’ 36 3-point attempts set a Thompson-Boling Arena record for a women’s game. Some huge advantages for Tennessee came in the following categories: points in the paint (40-6), points off turnovers (24-5), second-chance points (220) and fast break points (21-2). After building a 27-point halftime lead, the second half was more of the same for Tennessee. The lead continued to grow throughout the final 20 minutes as the double-figure scorers piled up. Graves’ 3-point play with 13:25 left put UT ahead 59-26. A 14-2 run by the Lady Vols put UT ahead 65-28 on a layup by Harrison with nine minutes left. The lead hit 40 with just under seven minutes left. Missouri was led by Morgan Eye, who tallied 18 points. She set a ThompsonBoling Arena with 17 3-point field goal attempts as she made six. She broke the record of Tennessee’s Angie Bjorklund, who attempted 16 in 2008. Tennessee led 48-21 at intermission as Harrison nearly had a double-double with nine points and 11 rebounds. The point total of 48 and margin of +27 were the largest for the Lady Vols in an SEC game since leading Alabama 58-22 (+36) on Jan. 6, 2011. Tennessee limited Missouri to just 19.4 percent from the floor in the first half including 1-of-17 on 2-point field goals. The Lady Vols are a perfect 4-0 against the Tigers, winning twice in 1978 and once in 2010 prior to Thursday.

Game 16

#9/9 UT at Florida // Jan. 13, 2013

GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Tennessee scored the final five points in overtime to capture a 78-75 win at the O’Connell Center. Meighan Simmons (27 points) tied the game at 75 on a jumper with 1:12 left then Kamiko Williams and Bashaara Graves combined for three free throws in the final 24.3 seconds to secure the win. Graves sent the game to overtime with a free throw with 12.6 seconds left in regulation. Kayla Lewis’ 3-point attempt at the buzzer rimmed off for the Gators, who fell to 13-5 overall, 2-2 in the SEC. The Lady Vols (13-3 overall) have now won six games in a row and remain perfect in the SEC at 4-0. The win by three points was Tennessee’s first by fewer than five points since a 61-58 win at Ole Miss on Feb. 11, 2010. Simmons led all scorers with 27, 17 of which came in the first half. Graves notched her seventh double-double of the season with 17 points and 12 rebounds. After sitting much of the first half with foul trouble and not scoring, Isabelle Harrison netted 10 points -- all in the second half and overtime. She also added nine ebounds. Ariel Massengale chipped in 12 and handed out four assists. The Gators were led by Jaterra Bonds, who had 18. January Miller and Carlie Needles each added 11. Florida was without their top player Jennifer George for most of the afternoon after she suffered an injury late in the first half. Harrison’s layup 11 seconds into overtime was the only basket of the extra session for the first 2:30. Christin Mercer made Florida’s first shot -- after missing the first four attempts -- on a jumper to gave the Gators a 73-72 lead. Williams tallied her first point of the game on a free throw with 1:36 left, deadlocking the game at 73. Bonds quickly answered to regain a lead for the Gators at 75-73 with 1:29 left. Tennessee would score the next five points while keeping Florida off the board. Simmons tied the game at 75 all on a jumper with 1:12 left in OT. Williams made the first of two free throws with 24.3 left for a 76-75 lead. With a chance to tie the game or give Florida the lead, Mercer missed two free throws with 8.9 left. Florida fouled on the rebound sending Graves back to the foul line where she made both foul shots with a 78-75 lead with 8.4 left. Lewis’ 3-point attempt from the left wing bounced off and the Lady Vols kept their win streak going. Tennessee is 45-3 all-time against Florida. Simmons had 17 of her points in the first half as Tennessee took a 37-34 lead at intermission. The junior guard had 17 of UT’s first 33 points Florida has lost eight consecutive games in the series dating to their last win over the Lady Vols -- in Gainesville, on Feb. 8, 2009.

RECORDS

KNOXVILLE - On “We Back Pat” day at Thompson-Boling Arena, Tennessee honored its legendary coach Pat Summitt with a complete 96-69 victory over Alabama. The No. 9 Lady Vols have won eight games in a row overall and stand at a perfect 6-0 in the SEC and 15-3 overall. Tennessee had it most points in an SEC game since trouncing Alabama, 110-45 on Jan. 6, 2011. The Lady Vols have won 39 consecutive games in the series with Alabama, tying the second-longest active streak in the NCAA. Only Stanford has beaten Washington State more times in a row, 53. Freshman Bashaara Graves tallied 19 points to lead the Lady Vols. It marked the 15th time in 18 college games she scored in double-figures. Graves also corralled a team-best eight rebounds as the Lady Vols outrebounded the Crimson Tide, 50-38. UT also outscored Bama, 50-32 in the paint. Five Lady Vols scored in double-figures for the fourth time this season. Junior Meighan Simmons had 16, while sophomore Isabelle Harrison, senior Taber Spani and freshman Jasmine Jones all scored 14 points. It was a career-high for Jones. Sophomore Ariel Massengale added eight points and handed out six assists. Tennessee shot a 54.3 from the floor, just shy of a season-best 56.8 vs. Rice, back on Nov. 15. Alabama (11-7, 1-4 SEC) was led by Daisha Simmons, who scored 19 points. The entire coaching staff and players greeted Summitt prior to the game with hugs and well wishes as she sat in her normal seat at mid-court across the from the team benches. The Pat Summitt Foundation has continued to raise awareness in the fight against Alzheimer’s and Sunday’s game concluded a week of “We Back Pat” games in the SEC. Several presentations and donations were made to the Pat Summitt Foundation throughout the afternoon. Up by 14 at halftime, the Lady Vols continued to pull away in the second half as the hot shooting continued. The lead reached 20 less than four minutes into the second half. A 3-point play by Spani with 16:09 left in the game, put UT up 62-40. The lead ballooned to 27 on a Massengale jumper with 12:38 left to make it 73-46. UT hit the 80-point plateau on a Massengale free throw with 10:28 on the clock. Nia Moore’s short jumper put UT ahead 91-61 with 5:28 left in the game. Tennessee shot a blistering 62.9 percent from the floor in the first half to hold a 49-35 lead. The shooting percentage was the highest by the Lady Vols in a first half all season. The 49 points also equaled the most points in a first half as UT also scored 49 vs. North Carolina on Dec. 2, 2012. Graves (13) and Harrison (10) each had double-figures at halftime.

SEC

AUBURN, Ala. - Down by as many as 12 in the second half, the #9 Lady Vols rallied behind Meighan Simmons to end Auburn’s homecourt win streak at 11 with a 75-66 victory. Simmons scored 18 in the second half as Tennessee (14-3, 5-0 SEC) used an 11-2 run midway through the half to take control and secure its seventh win in a row and remain perfect in the conference. Auburn (13-5, 2-3 SEC) was 9-0 at home this season and had not lost at Auburn Arena since Feb. 12, 2012, a 51-48 defeat to Arkansas. Simmons led all scorers with 29 points, her fifth game this season with 20-plus points. She was a sparkling 10-of-14 from the floor including 4-of-6 from 3-point range and a perfect 5-of-5 at the foul line. Taber Spani scored 12 and Ariel Massengale had 11. Both Bashaara Graves and Isabelle Harrison corralled 11 rebounds as the Lady Vols pounded the glass in the second half for a 18-11 edge over the final 20 minutes. The Lady Vols outscored the Tigers, 22-13 to end the game. With the game tied at 53-53, Massengale knocked down a 3-pointer with six minutes left to put the Lady Vols ahead by three points or more for the first time all night. That capped a 7-0 run and put UT ahead 56-53. Tennessee never trailed for the remainder of the game after Massengale’s trey. Auburn was whistled for a technical foul for having six players on the court with 5:02 left in the game. Simmons made the ensuing free throws for a 60-55 lead. That pushed the decisive run to 11-2. Simmons’ fourth 3-pointer of the game with three minutes left sealed the win, giving the Lady Vols their first double-figure lead of the game at 70-60. Prior to UT’s takeover, the second half was one of runs for both teams. After Tennessee regained a lead for only the second time all night, Auburn answered by reeling off six points in a row to take a 53-49 lead with 7:23 left as Alverson nailed a 3-pointer. The Lady Vols used a 16-2 run to take their first lead since 2-0 on a layup by Kamiko Williams with 10:05 left in the second half, 49-47. Auburn led by 12 at 45-33 on a layup by Alverson with 14:29 left. Spani responded with consecutive layups to reduce the deficit to eight. That started an 11-0 run for Tennessee as Simmons scored the last six of the spurt to make it 45-44, Auburn. Auburn held a 32-27 lead at intermission as the Tigers controlled the glass (22-19), held a 16-2 lead on points in the paint and out-scored the Lady Vols on second-chance points, 10-0. Simmons had 11 first-half points, making half of the 10 field goals the Lady Vols made. UT’s front court was limited to one point -- from Graves in the first half. Tennessee leads the all-time series, 37-10, including 13-4 at Auburn. The Lady Vols have won five in a row in the series.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Meighan Simmons and Taber Spani combined for 47 points, Tennessee’s guards went 10-for-10 at the line in the final minute and the No. 9 Lady Vols withstood Vanderbilt’s second-half surge to take an 83-75 win at Memorial Gymnasium. Spani scored 24 points and Simmons added 23 points a day before her birthday as Tennessee (15-3, 6-0 SEC) remained undefeated in conference play. Spani was big in the first half with 15 points and Simmons’ intensity helped squash Vandy’s secondhalf runs. The Lady Vols enjoyed a 46-43 rebounding edge and had good production from their bigs. Bashaara Graves had 16 points and eight boards and Isabelle Harrison chipped in with eight points and nine rebounds. Christina Foggie led Vanderbilt (13-6, 3-3 SEC) with 22 points but fouled out with 41.3 seconds left in the game. Tiffany Clarke had 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Commodores. In the final five minutes, Tennessee committed to working the paint to match the Commodores’ continued drives inside. Graves and Harrison combined for eight straight points before Spani, Simmons and Ariel Massengale made 10 straight free throws to ice the game. The Lady Vols would not let Vanderbilt draw any closer than five points the rest of the way. Midway through the second half, UT and Vanderbilt played up-tempo basketball, exchanging mini scoring runs. One moment, Tennessee would have a 10-point lead; the next, Vandy would claw to within five points. With the Lady Vols up 61-56 at 8:24, Simmons drained two free throws and hit a mid-range jumper to answer a persistent Vandy attack. Graves came up big early in the second half to help Tennessee shake off a cold streak of shooting. She corralled a high entry pass and made a layup to reestablish UT’s lead at 43-41 with 15:07 on the clock. Her positioning for a defensive rebound on Vandy’s next possession allowed UT to push the ball forward. Simmons made two free throws after getting fouled on a drive and swished home a trey two possessions later to push Tennessee’s lead to 48-41. Vanderbilt stormed out of halftime with a 12-0 run. A pair of layups by Christina Foggie and a free throw and fastbreak score by Clarke pulled the Commodores to within 41-36 and a Tennessee timeout at 17:40. After the timeout, Clarke made another layup and Jasmine Lister hit a 3-pointer to knot the game at 41-41 with 16:09 left. UT’s defense stymied Vanderbilt to just 26.3 percent shooting before halftime (10-of-38). The Lady Vols shot 45.9 percent from the floor (17-of-37) and owned a 29-21 edge on the boards before the break. Spani led the team with 15 first-half points and was 3-of-4 from downtown. Simmons had 10 points, four boards and three assists and Graves and Harrison combined for 11 rebounds.

KNOXVILLE - Despite a 19-point, 13-rebound effort by UT freshman Bashaara Graves, No. 2/3 Notre Dame defeated No. 9/9 Tennessee 77-67 at Thompson-Boling Arena in front of a crowd of 13,556, the largest home crowd of the season. heT loss ended a nine-game win streak for the Lady Vols dating back to Dec. 28, 2012. The Lady Vols (16-4) kept the Fighting Irish (19-1) in check during the first half, but an early second half surge by the visiting team was too much for Tennessee to overcome as they fell to Notre Dame for the third-straight meeting. Skylar Diggins led the Fighting Irish putting up 33 points on the night, the most against the Lady Vols this season and most since A’dia Matthews had 34 for Kentucky on Jan. 12, 2012. Twenty-two of her 33 points came in the second half. Graves double-double was her team-leading eighth of the season, and 10 of her rebounds came on the offensive glass, a career best. Nine of her 19 points came from the charity stripe, yet another career best for the freshman. The Lady Vols took advantage of their second chances outscoring Notre Dame 17-14, while also putting up 18 points off turnovers. But the Irish had the edge in the paint, 38-28. Ariel Massengale dished out nine assists on the night, a season-high for the sophomore. Notre Dame opened the second half on 8-3 run extending its lead to 41-32, the largest of the game. Just a few minutes later the Fighting Irish took a 17-point lead thanks in part to an 11-0 run to make it 54-37 after the under-16 break. The Lady Vols turned it on putting up six points in just 24 seconds extending that run into an 18-5 offensive onslaught to cut the deficit to just six points with less than five minutes remaining in the game. But the Irish’s shots continued to fall as they went 53.6 percent from the field in the second half, including a 66.7 percent effort from behind the arc, finishing with the 77-67 victory. The night began with a presentation honoring Lady Vol Head Coach Emeritus Pat Summitt who became the 11th Vol to have a banner raised in their honor at ThompsonBoling Arena, and just the sixth Lady Vol. Summitt’s banner was raised in the rafters alongside Daedra Charles, Brigette Gordon, Tamika Catchings, Chamique Holdsclaw, and Holly Warlick. The final three Lady Vols were in attendance for the ceremony along with Candace Parker. The Hall of Fame coach, who led the Lady Vols from 1974-2012, accumulated 1,098 wins and eight National Championships during her tenure. Summitt became the first Lady Vol since Catchings Dec. 7, 2003 to be honored.within one.

RECORDS

COLUMBIA, Mo. - Kamiko Williams had a big first half and five Lady Vols scored in double figures, but No. 9/10 Tennessee could not overcome Missouri’s sharp shooting in a 80-63 loss to the Tigers at Mizzou Arena. Tennessee (17-5, 8-1 SEC) suffered its first conference loss of the season and committed 18 turnovers. Missouri (15-8, 4-5 SEC) used a second-half surge to cap a strong day of shooting and earn its first-ever win against the Lady Vols. The Tigers shot 52.7 percent (29-of-55) from the field, 45.8 percent (11-of-24) from 3-point range and 84.6 percent (11-of-13) from the line while dishing out 23 assists to UT’s six. The Lady Vols shot 41.8 percent (23-of-55) and struggled from long distance (5-of-14) and at the charity stripe (12-of-20). Missouri’s Morgan Eye led all players with 26 points, including a 6-of-12 effort from beyond the arc. Brianna Kulas added had 20 points, five boards, five assists and three steals in an impressive all-around effort. Liz Smith found points inside for the Tigers and finished with 10 points. Williams led UT in scoring 14 first-half points on 7-of-9 shooting before an injury sidelined her in the second half. She also amassed six rebounds, two assists, three steals and one block. Taber Spani had 12 points and four rebounds and Meighan Simmons finished with 13 points. Bashaara Graves and Ariel Massengale had 11 points and 10 points, respectively. Kulas’ layup with 6:11 remaining opened a 10-1 Tigers run capped off by two free throws by Lianna Doty with just over four minutes left. Missouri’s lead grew to 70-54, its largest of the game until the closing seconds. A two-point jumper by Simmons would bring Tennessee to within nine points at 76-63 with 2:33 remaining, but the Lady Vols would come no closer. Missouri’s attack was efficient and effective as the Tigers used a 10-minute, 21-10 run to climb out to a 58-47 advantage with 9:34 remaining. Eye hit three treys and scored 11 points over that stretch. Williams came down awkwardly on her right leg at the 17:00 mark of the second half following a layup by Smith. She was helped off the court by the UT athletic training staff and did not return. Both teams came out of the break with the same tenacity that made for a back-and-forth first half. A 3-pointer by MU’s Kyley Simmons 15 seconds into the second period knotted the game at 37-37. Tennessee had a 37-34 lead at halftime after a tightly-contested first period that featured eight lead changes. Williams was dominant on both ends of the floor in the first half, shooting 7-of-9 for 14 points with two assists, six boards and three steals. Eye led the Tigers with 11 points, including nine from long distance.

The Lady Vols won their 34th consecutive game against Mississippi State -every meeting between the teams. Only four of the meetings have been decided by five points or less. The 34 wins rank as the seventh-longest active streak in any series in the NCAA. The Bulldogs were led by Martha Alwal, who had 16 points. The win was the eighth wire-to-wire win this season and third in SEC play. Tennessee jumped out to a 10-0 lead in the first three minutes and never looked back. Jasmine Jones’ jump shot with 7:48 left in the half extended the lead to 25-10. The highlight of the first half came when Burdick returned to the court after being sidelined since New Year’s Day. Burdick played the final six minutes of the half in her SEC debut this season. She scored her first bucket on a layup with three minutes left in the first half, making it 35-16. Simmons’ jumper finished the first half scoring as she hit 10 points and gave the Lady Vols a 42-18 lead at intermission. The second half was more of the same as Tennessee outscored the Bulldogs, 46-27 in the final 20 minutes.

BATON ROUGE, La. -- In dramatic fashion, the No. 12/13 Lady Vols battled down to the wire with LSU as freshman Bashaara Graves sank the game-winning bucket with .8 seconds left to defeat the Tigers, 64-62, at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. In the first meeting between between first-year head coach Holly Warlick and former Lady Vol and current LSU coach Nikki Caldwell, Tennessee (18-5, 9-1 SEC) powered through the LSU defense to earn its ninth SEC win of the season, and seventh straight victory over the Tigers. LSU fell to 13-10 overall and 4-6 in league action. Junior Meighan Simmons led the team as she posted 18 points, while Graves followed with 17. Sophomores Ariel Massengale and Cierra Burdick added nine apiece. Burdick grabbed a team-best nine boards with senior Kamiko Williams bringing down six. The Lady Vols shot 49.1 percent (27-of-55) from the field for the game, while shooting 60 percent in the second half alone. UT went 41.7 percent (5-of-12) from the 3-point range and 50 percent (5-of-10) from the free throw line. LSU’s Theresa Plaisance led all players as she tallied 20 points for the Tigers. Bianca Lutley added 13, while freshman Danielle Ballard contributed 10. The Lady Vols jumped to a 9-0 lead to start the game, gaining as much as an 11-point lead as they went up 13-2 before the Tigers battled their way back. LSU scored eight straight to cut it to three, then went on to a 7-0 run to give them a one-point lead at the under-9 minute mark in the opening half. UT led 28-26 heading into the locker rooms at the halfway point. Coming out of the break, the Lady Vols kick started their efforts as they went up 34-27 before LSU responded again. For every basket UT made, LSU would respond with its own. With four minutes remaining, a charge was called on Massengale as momentum seemed to turn in the Tigers’ favor. LSU hung on to the lead until 7.1 seconds left when Burdick was fouled. She missed the first free throw before making the second to tie it up, 62-62. A UT steal on the Tigers’ inbounds pass would give Tennessee the ball back, before Graves made the final basket with .8 seconds on the clock to give UT the lead and victory.

KNOXVILLE - Led by junior Meighan Simmons who finished with 24 points, the Tennessee women’s basketball team jumped out to an early lead and never looked back finishing with a 97-68 victory over Ole Miss (8-15, 1-9 SEC) in front of a crowd of 11,727 at Thompson-Boling Arena. It was the ninth wire-to-wire win of the season for the Lady Vols (19-5, 10-1) and their fourth in conference play. Five Tennessee players tallied double-digit scoring for the sixth time this season en route to a 59.4 shooting percentage, the highest of the season. The Lady Vols shot 66.7 percent from the field in the second half putting up 57 points in the frame on the scoreboard, the most in any half this season and the most since a 58-point first half against Alabama on Jan. 6, 2011, a game UT won 110-45. With her team-leading 24 points, Simmons moved into 26th place on the alltime scoring list finishing the day with 1,319 points passing Tonya Edwards (1,309). It was the eighth time this season that Simmons registered over 20 points and the 18th time in her career. Bashaara Graves notched her ninth double-double of the season with 19 points and 11 boards, tying Tamika Catchings for fourth-most double-doubles by a Lady Vol freshman. While fellow freshman Nia Moore notched 12 points, a careerhigh, in just 10 minutes of play. Aiding Simmons was sophomore Ariel Massengale who dished out eight assists one off of her season-high (9) while Kamiko Williams added five helpers, one off of her career-high (6). The Lady Vols began the game off on a 16-2 run and cruised the rest of the way holding Ole Miss to just one field goal in the first seven and a half minutes of play. The Rebels briefly got back into the game closing the gap to 28-23 with six minutes left in the first half. However, the Lady Vols finished the half on a 12-4 run to earn a 13-point, 40-27 halftime lead, marking the 12th time that Tennessee tallied at least 40 points at the half this season. In the second half, the Lady Vols grabbed a 20-point lead on a 3-pointer by Taber Spani, extending a 14-4 run with just under 13 minutes remaining in the game. The Lady Vols extended their lead to 22-points as Simmons took a no-look pass from Cierra Burdick and drained her second three of the game with 8:21 left to play en route to the 29-point victory.

KNOXVILLE - Tennessee opened the game on a 19-2 run and never looked back, as the Lady Vols cruised to their 10th wire-to-wire win of the year, 83-61, over Auburn. Tennessee (21-5, 12-1 SEC) increased its first-place lead in the conference to a full game over Kentucky (11-2 SEC). Five Lady Vols scored in double figures, the seventh time this season that has occurred. Junior Meighan Simmons led Tennessee with 24 points. She also recorded a career-high five steals. Sophomore Cierra Burdick posted her fourth career double-double and third this season with 15 points and a career-high 13 rebounds. Senior Taber Spani tallied 16, as she knocked down 4-of-5 from trifecta land. Freshman Bashaara Graves notched her 23rd game in double figures with 14, in her 26th collegiate game. Sophomore Ariel Massengale handed out a season-high 10 assists to go along with 10 points for her first career double-double. It marked the third time this year the Lady Vols had a pair of players with double-doubles. Three-pointers were a huge story for the Lady Vols, as they hit on a seasonbest nine-of-20. The win was Tennessee’s 15th consecutive at home against the Tigers. The Lady Vols have won every game in Knoxville vs. AU since 1989. All-time the Lady Vols lead the series, 38-10. Tennessee began the game on fire, making nine of its first 12 shots, including seven in a row, extending its lead to 22-5. The Lady Vols broke the game open hitting five consecutive 3-pointers in a two-minute span. Simmons knocked down three treys on her own to give the Lady Vols that 17-point advantage. Spani added two 3-pointers in the first half while Massengale also aided the effort with a three of her own. The Lady Vols’ offense, combined with 14 Auburn miscues in the first half, allowed the Lady Vols to scored 15 points off turnovers in the first 20 minutes.

KNOXVILLE - On “Live Pink, Bleed Orange” day at Thompson-Boling Arena, the Lady Vols sent the crowd of 14,716 home happy with an 83-64 victory over Vanderbilt. The No. 12/10 Lady Vols remained perfect all-time in home games against the Commodores, winning all 28 match-ups in Knoxville. Tennessee won its third game in a row and moved to 20-5 overall and 11-1 in the league. The Lady Vols took over first place in the SEC with the victory as Texas A&M (10-1 in the SEC) plays Kentucky on Monday night. Five Lady Vols scored in double-figures led by Meighan Simmons (17), who led UT in scoring for the 14th time this season. Freshman Jasmine Jones was an unlikely offensive source for the Lady Vols as she tallied 12 points, 10 in the first half. Sophomore Ariel Massengale added an SEC season-high 14 points, freshman Bashaara Graves added 13 while Taber Spani had 12. Vanderbilt fell to 16-9, 6-6 in the SEC. The Commodores were led by Jasmine Lister, who netted a game-high 24 points. The victory also gave the Lady Vols their 37th consecutive season with 20 or more wins. Since 1976-77, Tennessee has won at least 22 games in every season. Holly Warlick became the first head coach in the history of Tennessee women’s basketball to win 20 games in her first season at the helm. Pat Summitt went 16-8 in her first season leading the Lady Vols in 1974-75. Up by 10 at halftime, the Lady Vols came out strong in the second half, expanding the lead to 16 in a little over two minutes as Simmons finished a 3-point play with 2:13 elapsed, 49-33. The lead ballooned to 20 at 60-40 on a 7-0 run keyed by a 3-pointer from Spani with 13 minutes left. Vanderbilt got within 10 on three occasions in the final 8:40 of the game, but the Lady Vols were able to maintain the double-figure lead. Tennessee shot 55 percent from the floor including 55.9 in the second half. Tennessee held its largest lead of the first half heading into halftime as Jones knocked down jumper with nine seconds left in the half. That gave UT a 39-29 edge at intermission. It was the first double-figure lead of the game. Just prior, Jones keyed a Lady Vols 8-1 run late in the first half with back-toback jumpers giving UT a 33-24 lead with 3:51 left in the first half. Tennessee went on a 10-0 run after Vanderbilt scored the game’s first basket to lead 10-3 on an Massengale 3-pointer with less than three minutes elapsed. UT start 6-of-8 from the floor.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Down by as many as 11 early in the second half, No. 11/10 Tennessee rallied for a 60-54 win at Bud Walton Arena. The win keeps the Lady Vols in sole possession of first place in the SEC with a 13-1 league mark to go with a 22-5 overall record. Meighan Simmons led Tennessee with a game-high 18 points, while grabbing seven rebounds. The Lady Vols have won five games in a row heading into their final two regular-season games against the teams pushing for the perch in the SEC: Kentucky and Texas A&M, as each stands at 11-2 in the league. Both teams are in action on Sunday, but have not completed their games. It was the fourth time this season Tennessee rallied from a halftime deficit and second-largest overall comeback. UT trailed by as many as 12 vs. MTSU on Nov. 28, 2012, but rallied to win in overtime, 88-81. Taber Spani netted 14 while Bashaara Graves tallied 11 and grabbed a game-best nine rebounds. Arkansas (17-10, 5-9 SEC) was led by Quistelle Williams, who had 15 points. Tennessee used a 10-0 run early in the second half to rally from a 36-33 deficit with 15:35 left to take a 43-36 lead on a Spani 3-pointer with 12:48 remaining. The Lady Vols never trailed after that point. Arkansas continued to battle and keep the game within striking distance but were unable to pull off the upset. The Razorbacks cut the margin to one at 51-50 on a Sarah Watkins jumper with 3:32 left in the second half. A big bucket as the shot clock was winding down by Spani with 43 seconds left on the clock put the Lady Vols ahead, 56-50. Free throws sealed the game in the final minutes as Ariel Massengale and Spani each made a pair in the final 25 seconds. The Razorbacks outscored Tennessee 19-5 over the final 10 minutes of the first half to hold a 28-19 lead at halftime. Tennessee had built a 14-7 lead midway through the half, but turnovers (13) and poor shooting (26.9 percent) led to the Lady Vols falling behind. Tennessee leads the all-time series with Arkansas, 24-2 including a 12-1 mark in Fayetteville. The win for the Lady Vols gained a measure of revenge as Arkansas upset UT last season, 72-71 in overtime in Knoxville on Feb. 23, 2012.

KNOXVILLE -- #8 Tennessee secured the outright regular-season SEC championship with an 82-72 victory over #13/15 Texas A&M night before 12,213 at ThompsonBoling Arena. The Lady Vols claimed their 17th SEC regular-season crown overall. Senior Kamiko Williams scored a career-high 18 points and classmate Taber Spani scored eight as the duo won their third SEC regular-season crown. The Lady Vols (23-5 overall, 14-1 SEC) have won 18 of their last 19 games against conference foes dating to last season. That includes a perfect 8-0 mark at home in the SEC contests this year. First-year head coach Holly Warlick became the second coach in SEC history to win the regular-season title in her first year as a head coach in the league, joining Pokey Chatman, who won it at LSU in 2005. Texas A&M, which had won 21 of their last 25 games, fell to 21-8 overall and 11-4 in the SEC. Meighan Simmons netted 17 for her 17th game in a row in double-figures. Cierra Burdick had her fourth double of the season and second in three games with 15 points and a career-high 14 rebounds. Freshman Bashaara Graves tallied 14 points for her 25th game this season with 10 or more points. Playing her first home game in a month, Isabelle Harrison returned with 10 points -- all in the second half for UT’s fifth player in double-figures. After missing close to a month with an injury, Harrison was hurt late in the action and missed the final 1:52. Texas A&M was led by Adrienne Pratcher, who scored a game-high 20. Leading scorer and rebounder Kelsey Bone was limited to 14 points and five rebounds. Keyed by a 12-2 run just prior to halftime, the Lady Vols never relinquished the lead in the second half. A 13-2 run by the Lady Vols expanded the lead to 66-52 on a Burdick jumper with nine minutes left in the half. Texas A&M continued to threaten, but the Lady Vols took the Aggie punches and stood strong. Down by as many as 14, Pratcher scored eight points in a row to bring the Aggies back within four with 7:45 remaining. But the Lady Vols wouldn’t be deterred, after another Pratcher bucket cut the deficit to three, 67-64, Tennessee ripped off seven points in 51 seconds to regain a double-figure lead at 74-64 with 5:52 left. UT’s lead was cut to four with 3:50 left, but again, Tennessee withstood as Williams put the final dagger in the Aggies on a jumper with 10 seconds left for the final of 82-72. UT had the game’s final six points.

DULUTH, Ga. - Top-seeded Tennessee won its 10th consecutive SEC Tournament game as the Lady Vols knocked off No. 9 seed Florida, 82-73 at the Arena at Gwinnett Center. Tennessee will face No. 4 seed Texas A&M on Saturday at 4 p.m., on ESPNU and the Lady Vol Network. The Aggies topped South Carolina, 61-52, to advance to the semifinal round.

Overall, Tennessee has reached the SEC Semifinals 30 times in 34 years and won the tournament title 16 times.

Tennessee finishes its first season under head coach Holly Warlick with an overall record of 23-6 and a 14-2 mark in the SEC. Kentucky finishes second to the Lady Vols in the league at 25-4 overall and 13-3 in the league. For the 17th time this season, Meighan Simmons led the lady Vols in scoring putting up 15 points to go along with seven rebounds and two assists. Four Lady Vols notched double-digit scoring including Bashaara Graves who had 12 points and five rebounds, Cierra Burdick who notched her third doubledouble in the last four games on 11 points and 11 rebounds and Taber Spani who hit a three at the end of the game to give herself 11 points on the day. Kentucky’s leader board was topped by senior A’dia Mathies, playing in her final game at Memorial Coliseum, and Jennifer O’Neill who each tallied 16 points in the game. Five different Wildcats notched double-digit scoring. Turnovers played a big part in the Kentucky victory as the Wildcats used 19 Tennessee turnovers in the first half, a season high for the Lady Vols, to put 21 of their 36 points on the board. The previous season-high was 17 at Chattanooga in the first game of the season on Nov. 9, 2012. The Lady Vols finished the game with a season-high 31 turnovers as Kentucky capitalized by tallying 33 points off of those turnovers. Tennessee’s previous high in 2012-13 was 26 turnovers in a game, also at Chattanooga. The Lady Vols cut the once-13 point first half lead to just two at 34-32 nearing the end of the half using a 13-2 run sparked by Graves and Williams. Graves put up eight of the 12 points tallied during the run while Williams pulled down three defensive rebounds while tallying a bucket. Williams came out of the game after injuring her right ankle with under-45 seconds remaining in the first half getting back on defense. At the time of the injury Williams tallied nine points and seven rebounds. Williams returned in the second half. The Wildcats opened the second half on a 9-0 run to extend its lead to 13 points and later extending the lead to 19 points using back-to-back A’dia Mathies 3-pointers and a 58 second, 8-0 run. Kentucky led much of the second half by double-digits en route to the 78-65 victory.

DULUTH, Ga. - Despite senior Taber Spani’s career-high 33 points, the ninthranked Tennessee Lady Vols could not hold their lead down the stretch, falling to No. 19 Texas A&M 66-62 in the semifinals of the SEC Tournament at The Arena at Gwinnett Center. The Lady Vols (24-7) led by as many as 10 points midway through the second half, but Texas A&M (23-9) steadily chipped away at the lead. Freshman Courtney Walker scored just four points for the Aggies, but both baskets came down the stretch. She hit a jumper with 35 seconds left to put Texas A&M ahead 64-62, which proved to be the game winner as the Lady Vols missed their final two shots. The loss snapped a streak of three consecutive trips to the SEC finals for the Lady Vols, the tournament’s No. 1 seeds and regular-season champions. Spani was near perfect from the field, shooting 11 of 13 from the floor. She hit all five of the team’s three pointers, going 5 of 6 from behind the arc. She also led the team with eight rebounds. Senior Meighan Simmons added 10 points. Four Texas A&M players finished in double figures, led by Courtney Walker with 18 points. The first half was a back-and-forth battle with the lead changing hands nine times. Kristi Bellock hit a jumper with 7:49 left in the half to spark an 11-0 run for the Aggies. Texas A&M went from four points down to taking a 29-22 lead. The Lady Vols responded with an 8-0 run to take a 30-29 lead on a layup by Kamiko Williams. Texas A&M reclaimed the lead and entered halftime ahead 3533. Spani provided a bulk of the Lady Vols’ scoring in the half with 18 points. The Lady Vols opened the second half on a 7-0 run, going ahead 41-35 with a 3-pointer by Spani. Tennessee stretched its lead to 10 points at 50-40 after Jasmine Jones hit a jumper, but Texas A&M was not done yet. Texas A&M went on an 8-0 run to close the Lady Vols’ lead to 50-48 with 9:54 left. The Aggies eventually tied the game at 54-54 on a jumper by Courtney Williams.

KNOXVILLE - No. 2 seed Tennessee won its 51st consecutive home game in the NCAA Tournament with a 83-62 victory over No. 15 seed Oral Roberts at Thompson-Boling Arena. The Lady Vols are 49-1 all-time in first-round games, with the lone loss coming in 2009 to Ball State. Tennessee -- the only team to play in all 32 tournaments -- remained perfect in home games in the NCAA Tournament dating to the start of the event in 1982 including a 39-0 mark at Thompson-Boling. Junior guard Meighan Simmons led Tennessee with 18 points. She added five rebounds and three steals. Ariel Massengale netted 13, for her best scoring game in more than a month, and handed out six assists. Cierra Burdick also added 13 to go along with eight rebounds. SEC Freshman of the Year Bashaara Graves scored in double-figures for the 28th time in 32 games during her rookie campaign with 11 points. She also grabbed seven rebounds. All 10 Lady Vols to play scored. With 10 blocked shots -- all in the first half -- Oral Roberts tied a ThompsonBoling Arena for blocks by a Tennessee opponent in any game. The mark was set by Baylor set in 2011. Six-foot-three-inch center Sarah Shelton swatted six shots, one shy of the TBA record for blocks by a Tennessee opponent. The mark of seven is held by three players, most recently Baylor’s Brittany Griner in that game from 2011. Up 13 at halftime, Tennessee continued to add its lead as the second half unfolded. UT tallied the first 11 points of the half to take a 24-point lead at 55-31. The Golden Eagles missed 13 consecutive shots as the Lady Vols took command. Oral Roberts didn’t score for the first 5:34 of the second half until Christian Key canned a 3-pointer. Freshman Nia Moore, making her NCAA Tournament debut, put home her first postseason points for a 77-51 lead with six minutes remaining. The Lady Vols finished the game off in style and gave Tennessee head coach Holly Warlick her first postseason win in charge of the Lady Vols. Tennessee held a 44-31 lead at halftime. Simmons was all over the court in the first half as she scored 14 points, grabbed four rebounds and came away with three steals. All eight Lady Vols who played in the first half scored. UT held a significant advantage in the speciality stats after the first 20 minutes: points off turnovers (15-1), second chance points (11-2), bench points (10-2) and points in the paint (18-11). Oral Roberts was led by Cooper, who had 10 points.

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - Tennessee used a 25-5 first-half run and cruised to a 74-59 victory in the Sweet 16 at the Chesapeake Energy Arena. Tennessee advanced to the Elite Eight for the 26th time in school history and third year in a row. The Lady Vols are a remarkable 26-5 all-time in regional semifinal games and an NCAA-best 115-23 all-time in 138 NCAA Tournament contests. Senior Kamiko Williams continued her torrid late-season play with 15 points. Fellow senior Taber Spani added 12 points to give the senior combo 27 points. Two other Lady Vols scored in double-figures Sophomore Isabelle Harrison had her best game since returning from a late-season injury, posting 12 points and eight rebounds. Sophomore Cierra Burdick notched 13 points. The Lady Vols’ defense was incredible all game, limiting Oklahoma to just 23-of-75 from the floor for 30.7 percent. The Sooners made just 17.2 percent from 3-point range, hitting just 5-of-29 from beyond the arc. Sixth-seeded Oklahoma (24-11) was led by Sharane Campbell, who scored a game-high 22 points. Joanna McFarland had 14 points and 16 rebounds. The Sooners suffered a major blow when guard Morgan Hook was injured early in the game and did not return. For the second postseason game in a row, Williams keyed the Lady Vols as they built a sizeable first-half lead. Williams tallied 13 in the first half as UT held a 44-27 lead at halftime. With the game tied at 11, five minutes into the action, Tennessee outscored Oklahoma, 33-16, over the final 15 minutes to lead by 17 at halftime. Tennessee’s defense held Oklahoma to just 28.2 percent from the floor in the first half. The Sooners had a significant drought midway through the first half, making just 1-of-19 shots in just under 10 minutes of action. Williams’ sparked a 15-2 spurt to put the Lady Vols ahead, 26-13 with 10 minutes left in the first half, causing OU to call timeout. The Lady Vols held Oklahoma without a point for 4:25 before McFarland ended a 10-0 spurt. UT also had a run of holding the Sooners without a field goal for 5:27 later in the half. The Lady Vols shot 53 percent in the first half. Tennessee opened the game making nine of its first 13 field goal attempts including its first three 3-point tries. Ahead by 17 at halftime, Tennessee struggled early in the second half as the Lady Vols were held off the scoreboard for the first 4:41 until Ariel Massengale knocked home a jumper after Oklahoma had cut its deficit to 13 points. Once UT got on track, the Lady Vols got it going on both ends of the floor.

SEC

KNOXVILLE - Tennessee advanced to the Sweet 16 for the 31st time in 32 years with a 68-52 win over Creighton. Tennessee is now 52-0 all-time in home NCAA Tournament games including a 40-0 mark in first and second-round games. The Orange & White has a 50-1 overall record in first and second round games. In their final game in Thompson-Boling Arena, seniors Kamiko Williams (15) and Taber Spani (10) combined for 25 points to head the Lady Vols’ scoring chart. Junior Meighan Simmons and sophomore Ariel Massengale each added 10 points. Tennessee used tremendous defense to limit Creighton to just 4-of-22 from 3-point range -- the Bluejays’ specialty. It marked the fewest trifectas in a game for Creighton this season. The 18.2 percent was also a season-low for CU from 3-point land. The Jays came into the NCAA Tournament, second in the NCAA in made treys per game (9.2). The Lady Vols dominated the paint as expected, outscoring the Jays, 26-16. Tennessee also showed its quickness with 15 fastbreak points to two for Creighton. Creighton (25-8) was led by Alexis Akin-Otiko, who had 12. Tennessee opened the second half with stifling defense and up-tempo offense. The Lady Vols’ 13-0 run gave UT a 48-31 lead on a sweet give-and-go finished by Williams and 3-pointers by Massengale and Simmons with 15 minutes left in the half. After Creighton cut the deficit to 12 points, Spani answered with a 3-pointer with 7:44 left in regulation to put UT ahead, 59-44. The Bluejays kept battling and cut the margin to single-digits on a pair of free throws by Ally Jensen with 4:42 left in regulation at 59-50. But, once again the Lady Vols answered as Simmons knocked down a 3-pointer to give UT a 62-50 advantage. The Lady Vols sealed the game with a 9-0 run in the final minutes. The Lady Vols shot 50 percent from the floor in the second half. Tennessee held the Jays to just one 3-pointer on defense as Creighton shot just 25.9 on all field goal attempts (1-of-12 in 3-pointers). WIlliams (10 first-half points) was the difference for the Lady Vols late in the first half as she scored twice in the final minute to put Tennessee ahead 35-29 at the break. The game was tied on five occasions and the largest lead was eight over the first 20 minutes.

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. -- The Lady Vols nearly rallied from a 20-point deficit in the second half, but came up short as their season came to an end in a 86-78 loss to Louisville in the Elite Eight at the Chesapeake Energy Arena. No. 2 seed Tennessee finished with a 27-8 record in Holly Warlick’s first season at the helm of the program. The Lady Vols were led by the senior duo of Taber Spani (20 points) and Kamiko Williams (12 points) for the third game in a row in the postseason. The pair, who played their final game in Orange & White combined for 32 points with all of Spani’s points coming in the second half. Meighan Simmons scored all of her 12 points in the second half during UT’s rally.Bashaara Graves and Isabelle Harrison each added 11 points. Louisville was led by Shoni Schimmel, who scored 24 points. Sister Jude Schimmel scored 15 to give the duo 39 points. Bria Smith (13), Monique Reid (12) and Sara Hammond (11) also scored in double-figures for the Cardinals. Down by as many as 20 points early in the second half, Tennessee cut the deficit to three points with 4:28 left in regulation, but the Lady Vols were unable to finish what would have been their largest comeback since 2009. Simmons’ first field goal -- after seven misses -- came on a 3-pointer with 8:28 left in regulation to cut it to 64-56. Spani’s jumper brought UT within six. 64-58. Spani’s free throws inched the Lady Vols to within five points at 66-61 with six minutes left. Williams’ jumper with 4:28 on the clock, made the game a one possession game (68-65) for the first time less than five minutes into the game (8-5). That was as close as the Lady Vols would get after a furious comeback in the second half. The Schimmel sisters scored nine straight points for the Cardinals as Jude nailed a 3-pointer with 2:06 left followed by a layup from Shoni to regain a commanding eightpoint lead with 1:46 left in the game at 79-71. An Antonia Slaughter layup regained the double-figure lead at 81-71 with 1:09 left. That proved to be the final blow for the Lady Vols and ended their season. Shoni Schimmel knocked down a 3-pointer to put Louisville ahead by 20 at 4929, just 90 seconds into the second half. Spani answered with her first points of the half on a 3-pointer of her own seconds later. Louisville led 41-26 at halftime thanks to 17 total points from the Schimmel sisters as Shoni led all players with 10. Tennessee’s top three scorers (Simmons, Graves and Spani) combined for just three points -- all from Graves -- in the first 20 minutes. The Cardinals outrebounded the Lady Vols, 24-14 in the first half, including 10 offensive boards. Tennessee had rallied to win from double-digit deficits three times this season vs. MTSU (down by 12), at Auburn (Down by 12) and at Arkansas (down by 11). The Lady Vols rallied from 14-point deficit to win in the Sweet 16 last season vs. Kansas.
