Freshman forward Shi-Heria Shipp led the Colonials with a career-high 14 points. Sophomore center Sara Mostafa posted a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds, seven of which were offensive. Kay-Kay Allums, a sophomore guard from Hugo, Minn., also tallied double-digit points, recording 10 in 22 minutes of action. IN THEIR LAST GAME In their last game before traveling to Tennessee, George Washington was enjoying the sunny weekend in Freeport, Bahamas in the Junkaroo Jam. Or maybe not. In the tournament consolation finals, GW freshman Shi-Heria Shipp tossed in 14 points and sophomore Sara Mostafa’s added a 12-point, 10-rebound double-double but it wasn’t enough to upend Marist, 80-58. The Red Foxes got a 28 point performance from Rachele Fitz in the Lucaya Division consolation game at St. Georges’ High School on Nov. 28. Shipp also added seven rebounds and six assists in 30 minutes for the Colonials. Sophomore Kay-Kay Allums also reached double figures with 10 points. W (2-3) made just 4-of-23 three-point attempts and finished at 34.9 percent from the field in losing its third straight game. Marist scored 29 points off 22 Colonials’ turnovers. GW scored the first four points of the game, but made just one field goal over a span of 10 minutes and trailed by double digits midway through the first half. Marist scored the final seven points of the period – all from Fitz - to lead 38-24 at halftime. The Colonials scored on their first three possessions of the second half, including a threepoint play from Shipp to trim the deficit to nine, 40-31, but Fitz answered with her own three-point play and the Red Foxes’ lead never dipped below double digits again. OUR LAST MEETING WITH GWU The Lady Vols earned on a hard-fought, 7159, win over the George Washington Colonials in our nation’s capital on Dec. 2, 2008. Freshman Glory Johnson again led the way for Tennessee

with her third double-double of the season. She recorded game-highs of 16 points and 10 rebounds, including a season-high 10 free throws on 12 attempts. Johnson added four steals on the defensive end. Senior Alex Fuller played arguably her best game of the season thus far, as she finished with 13 points on 4-of-6 shooting, and grabbed six rebounds. Fuller played 28 minutes, including all 20 of the second half. She also knocked down her first two three-pointers of the season. The Lady Vols opened the game on a 6-0 run and never trailed in the first half for the fourth time this season. UT did no relinquish the lead in the final 20 minutes, either, for the fifth time this season. George Washington trimmed the Tennessee lead to 54-52 with just over six minutes to play, but the Lady Vols held onto the lead and a pair of Johnson free throws with just under four minutes left put UT back up 59-54. Fuller stepped to the line twice and made three of four free throws to put the Lady Vols up six, 62-56, with 2:41 remaining. Sophomore Angie Bjorklund made her first three-pointer of the game and only her second all season with 1:12 to play that gave Tennessee an eight point lead. Four times throughout the game Tennessee built a 13-point lead, but each time George Washington responded with five consecutive points to cut the lead back to eight. Freshman Shekinna Stricklen (Morrilton, Ark.) finished with 12 points, her fifth double-digit scoring output this year. Stricklen also grabbed a gamehigh five steals and added two assists. Sophomore Vicki Baugh shared game-high rebounding honors with Johnson with 10. BROKE THEIR STREAK Last season, the Lady Vols snapped George Washington’s 16-game home court winning streak at the Smith Center. Throughout the years, UT has been responsible for breaking a number of lengthy home court winning streaks, 20 to be exact. In 2008, UT snapped Duke’s 24-game winning streak which was the longest in the nation at the time. The Lady Vols know something about home court winning streaks – Tennessee shares the NCAA record at 69 consecutive wins at home. COMMON OPPONENTS GW and UT share two common opponents this season. The Colonials will face Auburn on Dec. 5 on The Plains and entertain Rutgers at home on Dec. 30. The Lady Vols will see Auburn on Jan. 28 in Knoxville and will meet up with Rutgers on Dec. 13 in Madison Square Garden in the Maggie Dixon Classic.

GW SERIES This marks the 10th meeting between the two schools dating back to the inaugural contest in 1992 at the Maryland Invitational Tournament. Coach Pat Summitt brought her Lady Vol team back east to play near All-America Dana Johnson’s Baltimore home. In the 2001-02 season, UT visited GW for Kara Lawson’s homecoming game in 2001 and were treated to the first sell-out crowd ever for women’s hoops at GW. During the 2005-06 season, the two teams met twice – once during the regular season in Washington, D.C. and in UT’s 34th game of the season at the NCAA Second Round in Norfolk, Va. The Lady Vols won both. After a one year hiatus, the series picked back up last year in Washington. VERSUS THE A-10 Tennessee has taken on 10 teams from the Atlantic 10 Conference all-time and sports a 24-1 record, with the only loss coming to Xavier, 80-65, on March 24, 2001. In 2005-06, Tennessee had three meetings with Atlantic 10 opponents. UT constructed a 3-0 record registering wins at George Washington, 59-43 on Dec. 7, 2005; a 75-50 victory at Temple on Dec. 28, 2005, and an NCAA Second Round win over GWU, 66-53, in Norfolk, Va., on Mar. 21, 2006. THAT A-10 LOSS UT’s lone loss to an Atlantic 10 Conference team came in the 2001 NCAA Mideast Regionals. The Lady Vols were shocked, 80-65, by #12/11 ranked Xavier. UT-GW FACING THE RANKED Tennessee is slated to face 12 ranked teams in 14 games this season while GW is expected to face four ranked teams in four games -- #6/5 UT, #9/10 Xavier #25 Dayton and #25 Michigan State (a 78-47 loss on Nov. 27).

are Brittany Jackson in third with 161...Kara Lawson in second with 256 and Shanna Zolman leading the pack with 266. GLORY B UT sophomore Glory Johnson is currently leading the Southeastern Conference in field goal accuracy connecting at a .638 clip. Johnson only shot 50 percent against UCLA and her average dropped from .696. This season, the talented forward from Knoxville has expanded her shooting repertoire and has been deadly from a number of spots on the floor. FROM THE TRAINING ROOM Several Lady Vols have been nicked up already this season and qualify for “Moshak’s Medical Moments.” Vicki Baugh-Continuing to rehab from torn ACL suffered in the 2009 game at Oklahoma. Participates in practice and pulls herself when the knee “talks” to her. Kelley Cain- Concussion. Faith Dupree- Dealing with back spasms. Will sit out this season. Glory Johnson- Suffered a left shoulder injury in practice (Nov. 11) but is a full go wearing a shoulder sleeve. STAFFERS HAVE -- NEVER A FORMER PLAYER ...have come back and dropped an “L” on Coach Pat Summitt and the Lady Vols. Former Tennessee player and assistant coach Nikki Caldwell looked like her UCLA Bruins might be the first to pull the upset on Nov. 28 in Knoxville. The Bruins grabbed a 10-point first half lead and looked very confident heading into the locker room leading 27-25 at the break. In the Tennessee locker room, Summitt was imploring her team for no more “negative history.” Referring back to last season when her young Lady Vols were responsible for a number of “negative history firsts.” The roll call goes like this: Sylvia Hatchell, Sharon Fanning, Jane Albright, Lea Henry, Nancy Darsch, Trish Roberts, Mickie DeMoss, Matthew Mitchell, Kellie Jolly Harper and Tanya Haave. UT coach Pat Summitt has faced many former players and assistant coaches in a variety of games thru the years but no former Lady Vol player has ever knocked off her mentor. Former assistant

Lady Vol Basketball • Eight-Time NCAA Champions (1987-89-91-96-97-98-2007-08)


Game Notes • Tennessee vs. George Washington University • Dec. 1, 2009 Carolyn Peck was the first to record a victory over her former boss. While at Purdue, Peck handed Summitt a 78-68 loss on Nov.15, 1998 in the State Farm Tip-Off Classic in West Lafayette, Ind. The defeat snapped UT’s 46-game consecutive winning streak (that was second only to Louisiana Tech’s NCAA all-time 54-game winning streak). Former assistants Mickie DeMoss and last year Matthew Mitchell turned the trick as a head coaches at Kentucky, (DeMoss 66-63, on Jan. 26, 2006 and Mitchell 66-56 on Feb. 19, 2009), and Sylvia Hatchell managed to pull off the feat twice at North Carolina (75-63 on Mar. 28, 2006 and 7057, Dec. 3, 2006). Former Lady Vol players turned head coaches have been less successful. Former Lady Vol All-America Patricia Roberts tried while head coach at Maine (0-2, lost 77-64 on Dec. 13, 1990 and 86-71 on Nov. 24, 1991). Former Lady Vol Olympian and point guard Lea Henry faced Summitt in the NCAA Tournament with her Georgia State team and lost 98-68 on Mar. 15, 2002. Next to try to knock off Summitt was Kellie Jolly Harper with her Western Carolina team on Mar. 20, 2005. The Lady Catamounts lost 94-43. The most recent former Lady Vol hoopsters to take on their former coach: UT All-American and San Francisco head coach Tanya Haave. “LaMachine’s” Dons fell to UT on Nov. 15, 2008, 68-39. A little over a week later, Harper’s WCU team fell to Summitt’s Lady Vols, 83-56, on Nov. 25, 2008. They player to try the knock-off - -UCLA’s Nikki Caldwell. HOME SWEET HOME Much is made of the Lady Vols palatial locker room in Thompson-Boling Arena. The team lost the right to use the locker room following back-to-back losses last season to #7/10-ranked Duke (Feb. 16, 62-54) and Kentucky (Feb. 19, 66-56). Following the Lady Vols win over at #12/17-ranked Virginia on Nov. 22, 2009, Coach Pat Summitt announced in the post game talk to the team that they had earned their locker room back to thunderous cheers from the team. RANKED TIDBITS Tennessee is 2-0 against ranked opponents this season in four total games played. The Lady Vols opened the season with a 74-65 win over #7/4-ranked Baylor and took a 77-63 win on the road at #12/17-ranked Virginia. Next game against a ranked opponent will come against #17/14-ranked Texas on Dec. 6 in Knoxville. DUPREE DEALS WITH BACK PROBLEMS University of Tennessee Lady Vol Head Basketball Coach Pat Summitt announced on Nov. 23, 2009, that freshman center Faith Dupree will be sidelined this season. “Faith has been experiencing recurrent lower back pain,” explained Summitt. “Our medical staff (Director of Sports Medicine Jenny Moshak, team orthopaedist Dr. Greg Mathien and team physician Dr. Becky Morgan) felt that the best course of action was to spend this season treating her. “We are disappointed for Faith and what she means to our team,” said Summitt. “She worked really hard in the preseason drills and conditioning but now she needs time to focus on getting her back healthy.” Moshak, University of Tennessee Associate Athletics Director for Sports Medicine, has been treating Dupree for back pain for several weeks. “We are going to use this year to explore treatment options and provide aggressive rehabilitation,” said Moshak. Dupree, a 6-3 freshman from Knoxville, Tenn., appeared in the first two games of the sea-

WE HIT 1,100 The Tennessee Lady Vols have a proud and rich history of women’s basketball on “The Hill.” With the victory over Texas Tech on Nov. 17, the Lady Vols recorded the 1100th win in program history. BJORKLUND IS A WOODEN NOMINEE Lady Vol junior sharpshooter Angie Bjorklund is a preseason candidate for the John R. Wooden Award. She joins the initial list of student athletes who, based on last year’s individual performance and team records, are the frontrunners for college basketball’s most prestigious honor. This season, the Lady Vols will face a number of Wooden nominees including: Jayne Appel and Jeanette Pohlen (Stanford), Alysha Clark (Middle Tennessee), Allison Hightower (LSU), Ashley Houts (Georgia), Danielle Robinson (Oklahoma) and Monica Wright (Virginia). In late December, the Wooden Award Committee will release the Midseason Top 20 list, followed in March by the National Ballot,

Lady Vol Basketball • Eight-Time NCAA Champions (1987-89-91-96-97-98-2007-08)


Game Notes • Tennessee vs. George Washington University • Dec. 1, 2009 consisting of approximately 15 top players who have proven to their universities that they are also making progress toward graduation and maintaining a cumulative 2.0 GPA. The Women’s Wooden Award All-American Team will be announced the week of the “Elite Eight” round during the NCAA Tournament. The 34th annual Wooden Award ceremony, which will include the announcement of the Men’s and Women’s Wooden Award, and the presentation of the Wooden Award All-American Teams and the Legends of Coaching Award, will take place the weekend of April 9-11, 2010. STRICKLEN IS ON THE NAISMITH LIST Lady Vol sophomore Shekinna Stricklen has been named to the Naismith Player of the Year “watch list.” The watch list was compiled by the Atlanta Tipoff Club’s Board of Selectors, which based its criteria on player performances from the previous year and expectations for the 2009-10 college basketball season. The Naismith Trophy presented by AT&T will be awarded at the 2010 NCAA Women’s Final Four in San Antonio, Texas. STRICKLEN DOUBLES UP ACCOLADES Lady Vol sophomore Shekinna Stricklen was named Southeastern Conference Player of the Week and Lady Vol Athlete of the Week (Nov. 9-15) after leading the No. 8/9-ranked Lady Vols to a 7465 win over the No. 7/4-ranked Baylor Lady Bears on Nov. 15 at Thompson-Boling Arena to open the 2009-10 season. The Morrilton, Ark., native scored 25 points, grabbed a career-best 14 rebounds, dished out five assists and tallied three steals. The game against the Lady Bears marked Stricklen’s third career double-double. Her 25 points were one off of her career-high 26 points, which were scored at No. 6/5-ranked Auburn last season. 600TH WIN Tennessee’s win over Baylor to open the 2009-10 season was Lady Vol Coach Pat Summitt’s 600th victory over a non-conference team. She is now 604-129 versus non-conference opposition over 36 seasons. IS THERE A BIG 12 DIVISION FOR US? This season, Tennessee might qualify for divisional play in the Big 12. The Lady Vols have four opponents on its schedule from that conference. UT defeated #7/4 Baylor in Knoxville (74-65)... traveled to San Antonio to defeat Texas Tech, 91-53 and will entertain #17/14 Texas on Dec. 6 and #20/16 Oklahoma on Jan. 3 in Thompson-Boling Arena. ESPNU ROAD TO THE CHAMPIONSHIP The Lady Vols took the ESPNU Road to the Championship (formerly the ESPNU Women’s Basketball Invitational) when it defeated Texas Tech in Nov. 17. The preseason women’s basketball doubleheader, UConn defeated Texas in the night cap, is played in the same city as the women’s NCAA championship. The ESPNU Road to the Championship is an ESPN Regional TV (ERT) owned and operated event. San Antonio is the host city for the 2010 NCAA women’s basketball championship. GET THIS... It’s a fact that Tennessee has produced some of the greatest players ever in women’s collegiate basketball. It’s a little known fact that there has only been one double-figure rebounder in the history of the program -- Olympian and Kodak

All-American Patricia Roberts. Roberts hauled in 14.2 rpg (467 total) in her only season as a Lady Vol in 1976-77. She also claimed scoring honors with 29.9 ppg (987 points). In 2006-07, Candace Parker came the closest to a double-figure rebounding average but had to settle for 9.8 rpg. GOT THE PATCH Six Lady Vols are proudly displaying VOLScholar patches on their jerseys this semester -- Briana Bass, Angie Bjorklund, Kelley Cain, Glory Johnson, Alicia Manning and Sydney Smallbone. The VOLScholar program is an initiative of UT’s Thornton Athletics Student Life Center which is a comprehensive academic and citizenshipbuilding program that has gained enthusiastic support from UT’s men’s and women’s athletic teams. Student-athletes earn the right to wear the VOLScholar patch on their uniform by achieving a 3.0 grade-point average during the previous fall and/or spring semester. POLLSTERS The Tennessee Lady Vols started the season in somewhat unfamiliar territory in the Top 25 Preseason polls. The Associated Press placed UT in the eighth position to start the season, while the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll had UT in ninth spot. Last season, UT started in seventh in the AP and sixth in the coaches’ poll. Tennessee’s start in the AP poll is the lowest since the 198586 season when UT started in the number nine spot.

Lady Vol Basketball • Eight-Time NCAA Champions (1987-89-91-96-97-98-2007-08)


Game Notes • Tennessee vs. George Washington University • Dec. 1, 2009 Gwen Jackson 1999, Kyra Elzy 1996, Chamique Holdsclaw 1995, Tiffani Johnson 1994, Bridgette Gordon and Sheila Frost 1985. THE NOD Last season, a record number of players – FIVE – were called on to start for the Lady Vols as rookies… Shekinna Stricklen (starter number 53), Glory Johnson (number 54), Briana Bass (55), Alicia Manning (56) and Kelley Cain (57) all earned starting assignments becoming the 53rd-57th freshmen to earn the honor. Angie Bjorklund became the 52nd all-time Lady Vol to start during her freshman season –she started in 30 of 38 games. Previously, Cait McMahan earned a start at point guard versus Louisiana Tech during her freshman season. Prior to Cait’s starting nod, then-redshirt freshman Candace Parker played and started in all 36 games her rookie season in 2005-06. A season earlier, Tennessee coach Pat Summitt liked what she saw out of the 2004-05 rookie class as two players earned starting nods during the season. Nicky Anosike played in all 35 games with 25 starting assignments and Alexis Hornbuckle played in all 35 games with 21 starts. This duo became the 48th and 49th rookies all-time to earn starting assignments at UT as rookies. The 2001-02 rookie class found three players earn a starting nod as Loree Moore, Shyra Ely and Brittany Jackson all started at some point in their rookie careers. UT’S SEASON-OPENERS UNDER SUMMITT Over the last 36 years on opening day, the Lady Vols have won 33 times and lost just three contests. Coach Pat Summitt lost her very first game as a college head coach -- a heartbreaking one-point decision at home in Alumni Gym to Mercer, 84-83, on Dec. 7, 1974. The next time UT lost an opening game was in Knoxville on Nov. 21, 1981, to Stephen F. Austin, 80-74, in Stokely Athletics Center. Most recently, UT fell in their first contest of the 1999-2000 campaign dropping a 69-64 decision to Louisiana Tech on Nov. 14, 1999 in Thompson-Boling Arena. Until the loss to the Lady Techsters in 1999, the Lady Vols had won 18 consecutive season openers. ALWAYS A HOT TICKET Joe Arnone, UT Associate AD for Ticket Operations, says Lady Vol season ticket sales have been steady despite the disappointment of the 2008-09 season. As of Nov. 11th, 10,011 season tickets had been sold. Last season, over 10,400 season tickets were sold.

Lady Vol coach Pat Summitt passed Dean Smith for most NCAA collegiate basketball wins of alltime with a 75-54 win over Purdue on Mar. 22, 2005, UT named the TBA court, “The Summitt.” The floor had a complete overhaul with permanent logos of both the Lady Vols and Vols painted directly in front of the scorer’s table; the free throw lanes were painted orange with “SEC” reversed out; the giant jump circle/mid-court TENNESSEE was given a new brighter color scheme, and “The Summitt,” Coach Summitt’s actual signature adorns the sidelines opposite the team benches. 300 WINS IN TBA Tennessee recorded its 300th win in Thompson-Boling Arena when the Lady Vols defeated the Stanford Cardinal, 79-69 OT on Dec. 21, 2008. Seven years earlier, UT grabbed its 200th TBA win over the University of Southern California on Nov. 18, 2001, 106-66. UT has now amassed a 309-20 (.942) record since the Orange and White moved into the Thompson-Boling Arena to start the 1987-88 season 22-years ago. Along the way, the Lady Vols have produced nine flawless home records in 1988-89 (15-0), 1991-92 (14-0), 1992-93 (13-0), 1993-94 (150), 1994-95 (15-0), 1997-98 (16-0), 1998-99 (14-0), 2000-01 (15-0) and 2002-03 (16-0). UT also registered an NCAA record 69-game home court-winning streak from Feb. 1, 1991 thru Jan. 2, 1996. JUST 20 LOSSES The Tennessee Lady Vols rarely lose at home. In fact, since moving to the Thompson-Boling Arena for the 1987-88 campaign, UT has lost two games in one season just seven times. UT lost two games in TBA during the inaugural 1987-88 campaign, 199697, 1999-00, 2001-02, 2003-04, 2005-06 and 200809 seasons. The 20 all-time losses at TBA have come at the hands of just 10 teams: Virginia (2008), Florida (2006), LSU (2008, 2006), Duke (2009, 2007, 2004), Connecticut (2004, 2002, 2000, 1996), Louisiana Tech (1999, 1989), Georgia (1996, 1991), Texas (2003, 2002, 1987), Stanford (1996) and Auburn (1988). HOME SWEET HOME -- OVER 400 HOME WINS The victory over Georgia on Jan. 31, 2005, was the Lady Vols 400th home win since Pat Summitt took over as head coach in 1974. Summitt has won 91.4 percent of all home games in 36 years producing a 460-45 overall record. Home losses (in the Summitt era) include: six in Alumni Gym from 1974-76; 19 in Stokely Athletics Center from 1976-87; and 20 in Thompson-Boling Arena. 100 POINT GAMES Since 1974, the Lady Vols have gone over the century mark 69 times. The 1987-88 team hit triple digits in seven games to lead the NCAA.

OVER 500 GAMES VS. RANKED Tennessee’s game versus #12 Georgia on Feb. 16, 2006 was the Lady Vols’ 500th all-time versus a ranked team since the inception of the polls in 1976. UT is an amazing 415-156 (.725) versus ranked teams. The 2008-09 Lady Vols were a dismal 4-8 versus ranked teams. SEC COACHES TAB LADY VOLS The Southeastern Conference unveiled its sixth annual women’s basketball preseason AllSEC first and second teams, Thurs., Oct. 30, to tip-off the 2009-10 season of SEC women’s basketball. In addition, the coaches voted on a predicted order of finish, overall champion and a preseason Player of the Year. In the closet vote yet, Tennessee was predicted to win the Southeastern Conference regular season championship over LSU by one vote. The Lady Vols were 22-11, 9-5 in the SEC last season, while LSU finished 19-11, 10-4 in conference play. Mississippi State, Georgia, Vanderbilt and South Carolina round out the top half of the league with Florida, Auburn, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Kentucky and Alabama rounding out the lower half. LSU senior guard Allison Hightower was named SEC Women’s Basketball Preseason Player of the Year. Joining Hightower on the All-SEC First Team were Arkansas’ C’eira Ricketts, Georgia’s Ashley Houts and Angel Robinson, LSU’s LaSondra Barrett, Mississippi State’s Alexis Rack and Tennessee’s Angie Bjorklund and Shekinna Stricklen. Second team consists of Auburn’s Alli Smalley, Georgia’s Porsha Phillips, Kentucky’s Victoria Dunlap, Ole Miss’ Bianca Thomas, Mississippi State’s Armelie Lumanu and Chanel Mokango, Tennessee’s Glory Johnson and Vanderbilt’s Merideth Marsh and Hannah Tuomi.

LADY VOLS OWN ALL-TIME WINS MARK Tennessee is the all-time wins leader in the NCAA and collected victory number 1,100 against Texas Tech. The next closest program all-time in terms of wins is Louisiana Tech, which owns a 953-195 record. The Lady Vols boast a 1,103250-2 (.814) all-time record. FACING FORMER LADY VOLS -- NOW COACHES No former Lady Vol who has joined the collegiate coaching ranks has ever beaten Head Coach Pat Summitt. This year Nikki Caldwell (UCLA) and Tanya Haave (University of San Francisco) will try to accomplish the feat. Former players are 0-7 against their mentor. 2009-10 LADY VOL SCHEDULE NOTES Coach Pat Summitt has once again put together a demanding schedule for her squad. In 2009-10, the Lady Vols will face 14 NCAA Tournament teams from a year ago and four teams that played in the WNIT. The slate includes three of the four squads who played in the 2009 Final Four, a home match with SEC Champion Auburn and a double-date with SEC Tournament champion Vanderbilt. With the expanded SEC line-up, the Lady Vols will face four squads twice, in addition to traditional-rival Vanderbilt. Tennessee will go home-and-home with Florida, LSU, Ole Miss and South Carolina.

FRESHMEN AT TENNESSEE When Pat Summitt started freshmen guard/ forward Shekinna Stricklen and forward Glory Johnson on Nov. 15, 2008, against San Francisco, it marked the 11th and 12th times in her coaching career that a freshman started her very first game at Tennessee. The list of opening day rookie starters: Angie Bjorklund, 2007, Candace Parker, 2005, Shyra Ely 2001, Ashley Robinson 2000, Gwen Jackson 1999, Kyra Elzy 1996, Chamique Holdsclaw 1995, Tiffani Johnson 1994, Bridgette Gordon and Sheila Frost 1985. THE NOD Last season, Stricklen and Johnson become the 53rd and 54th Lady Vols all-time to start during their freshman season. Briana Bass became the 55th to earn the nod. Alicia Manning was the 56th and Kelley Cain became the 57th when she started against Alabama. As a rookie, Angie Bjork-

lund started in 30 of 38 games. Previously, Cait McMahan earned a start at point guard versus Louisiana Tech during her freshman season. Prior to Cait’s starting nod, then-redshirt freshman Candace Parker played and started in all 36 games her rookie season in 2005-06. A season earlier, Tennessee coach Pat Summitt liked what she saw out of the 2004-05 rookie class as two players earned starting nods during the season. Nicky Anosike played in all 35 games with 25 starting assignments and Alexis Hornbuckle played in all 35 games with 21 starts. This duo became the 48th and 49th rookies all-time to earn starting assignments at UT as rookies.

EXHIBITION 1: CARSON-NEWMAN Six players reached double figures and No. 8 Tennessee defeated Carson-Newman 124-34 in an exhibition game Thursday night in Thompson-Boling Arena. Sophomore Glory Johnson led the way with a game-high 22 points and 10 rebounds, and junior Angie Bjorklund scored 21 points on 9-of-14 shooting before making her exit midway through the second half. At one point after halftime, Bjorklund had scored more points than Carson-Newman. “We wanted to focus on what the team brought at both ends,” UT coach Pat Summitt said. “Last year, we would sometimes play down to the level of our competition. Tonight, we maintained our intensity. Last year, we’d get a lead and think the game was over. Tonight, we were thinking execution.” Freshman guard Taber Spani started and scored 17 points in her first game as a Lady Vol. Alicia Manning added 18 points, and Kelley Cain had 16 points. Shekinna Stricklen chipped in 12 points, 10 of which came in the first half. No other freshmen played until forward Kamiko Williams, who scored two points on 1-of-2 shooting, entered with about 6:21 remaining in the game. Faith Dupree did not play. For the game, Tennessee hit 62 percent of its shots from the field, including a 45-percent clip from beyond the 3-point line. Bjorklund and Spani both hit a team-high three 3-pointers. The Lady Vols opened the game on a 16-3 run and cruised to a 64-18 lead at halftime, thanks in large part to 18 first-half turnovers by CarsonNewman. Tennessee scored 22 points off turnovers in the opening half and used their considerable size advantage inside to outscore the Lady Eagles 34-8 inside over the same span. The Lady Vols defeated Carson-Newman 135-55 in an exhibition game last year and have now scored more than 100 points in five of their last six exhibition games against the Division II school. “Overall, I was pleased,” Summitt said. “We played well together. Sometimes our defense was too tight. We weren’t perfect, but we’ve got some good film to look at.”

EXHIBITION 2: DELTA STATE Kelley Cain breezed to a double-double Monday night in a 79-46 exhibition victory over Delta State in Thompson-Boling Arena. Cain, who finished with a game-high 20 points, 20 rebounds and seven blocked shots in just 19 minutes of play, loomed large over the Lady Statesmen, whose tallest player still gave up four inches to Tennessee’s 6-foot-6 center. “When she’s playing that way, you can’t stop it,” Lady Vols guard Angie Bjorklund said. “Having that inside presence really helps us, especially in the outside game. Coach (Pat) Summitt says that you win with rebounding and defense and she’s a huge part of that.” Tennessee opened on an 11-0 run and used another 11-0 run to take a 22-5 lead early in the first half. Delta State, ranked No. 4 in Division II, made a couple charges in the second half but never seriously posed a threat. “I wasn’t real impressed with what did in the first half,” Summitt said. “We played in spurts in the second half. The bright spots for us were Kelley Cain and Taber Spani.” Despite coming off the bench in favor of sophomore Glory Johnson, Spani notched a double-double of her own with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Seven of those boards came on the offensive end. “Taber is just a player,” Summitt said. “She just wants to play. It doesn’t matter where. She has a great feel for the game.” Angie Bjorklund scored 12 points on 4-of-13 shooting, while Shekinna Stricklen added 10 points and nine boards. Johnson finished with seven points on 2-of-6 shooting with two blocks and five rebounds. Freshman Faith Dupree made her Lady Vols debut Monday, but failed to score in 10 minutes on the court. She did record a block and two steals. Point guard Bug Cooper paced Delta State with 15 points, but the Lady Statesmen shot just 26 percent from the field and turned the ball over 19 times. Tennessee and Delta State last played in 1979 before Monday’s exhibition, but the two programs met in the 1977 AIAW Final Four where the Lady Statesmen defeated Tennessee to claim their third consecutive AIWA national title.

GAME 1: #7/4 BAYLOR The Tennessee Lady Vols officially opened the 2009-10 season against the No. 7/4-ranked Baylor Bears, and as in 33 other season openers under Head Coach Pat Summitt, the Lady Vols came away with a win, 74-65. Leading the way for Tennessee was sophomore Shekinna Stricklen, who played all 40 minutes on her way to her third career double double. The Morrilton, Ark., native scored 25 points - one off her career high - and grabbed 14 rebounds, establishing a new career best. Stricklen also dished out five assists and grabbed three steals on her way to Player of the Game honors. The Lady Vols got off to a quick start, building a 10-3 lead nearly four minutes into the contest. However, the Lady Vols shooting would go cold as the Lady Bears took a 26-24 lead into the lockerroom. While UT mustered only 28.9 percent from the field in the first 20 minutes, the Lady Vol defense limited Baylor to only 29.2 percent shooting. The second half belonged to Tennessee, as the Lady Vols outscored Baylor 50-39 in the final stanza. In addition to Stricklen, center Kelley Cain posted 13 of her 15 points in the second half. The Lady Vols used a 16-0 run from the 1:02 mark of the first half to the 16:16 point of the second half to transform a six-point deficit (20-26) into a 10-point lead (36-26). Junior Angie Bjorklund was the third Lady Vol to finish with double figures as she posted 13 points. Her three threepointers moved the Spokane Valley, Wash., native into a tie for fifth all-time with Sidney Spencer in the Tennessee record books with 133 career triples made. Sophomore Glory Johnson was the only Lady Vol to finish with more than four points. The Knoxville native tallied nine points to go with seven rebounds and four steals in 33 minutes of action.

GAME 2: TEXAS TECH The Tennessee Lady Vols made their first road trip of the season and handed the Texas Tech Lady Raiders a 91-53 loss at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas. The two sides squared off as part of the ESPNU “Road to the Championsip” the 2010 NCAA Final Four will be held at the Alamodome in San Antonio. The Lady Raiders grabbed the early lead, going up 6-2 just over four minutes into the contest. The Lady Vols would respond in a big way. Tennessee went on a 24-2 tear over 10:55 to build a 26-8 lead with just under five minutes to play before the halftime horn. Leading the way for UT in the first stanza were sophomores Shekinna Stricklen and Glory Johnson, who each tallied nine first half points and five rebounds. Johnson finished the contest with 17 points and six boards, while Stricklen tossed in 16 points, pulled down seven boards and dished out five assists. Tennessee was not about to let up in the second half, and opened the second period on a 32-4 run over the first six minutes of the half. Junior Angie Bjorklund keyed the run with nine points on three three-pointers over a mere 25 seconds, giving UT a 51-21 lead with 15:56 to play. For the game, the Lady Vol offense was not dependent solely on Johnson and Stricklen. Bjorklund finished with 14 points - all of which came in the second half - to go with four boards and two assists. Leading the way for the Lady Vols with a game high 18 points was freshman Taber Spani, 14 of which came in the second half. After shooting just 1-of-3 in the first half, the rookie was 4-of-6 in the final 20 minutes and also pulled down six boards. Sophomore Alicia Manning started her first game of the season, and tallied eight points and a game high nine rebounds. Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain grabbed eight boards and added seven points, while freshman Faith Dupree finished with six boards, five points and three assists in 18 minutes.

GAME 4: MIDDLE TENNESSEE STATE For the first time in 30 years, the Tennessee Lady Vols traveled to Murfreesboro to face the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders. Sophomore Glory Johnson led the Lady Vols to a 69-52 victory with a career high 21 points and 12 rebounds. It was the Knoxville native’s sixth career double double and her second career 20-plus point performance (she scored 20 points on Feb. 5 last season in a 73-43 win over Georgia). Tennessee grabbed a 2-0 lead on an Angie Bjorklund jumper. MTSU responded with a Chelsia Lymon threepointer. Lady Vol rookie Taber Spani converted a layup at the 18:50 mark of the first half and UT would not relinquish the lead the rest of the game. The Lady Vols used an 8-0 run to build a 30-20 lead with 3:58 and held the Blue Raiders to only two field goals in the last 7:18 of the first stanza as Tennessee finished the first 20 minutes on a 13-4 run and went into the lockerroom with a 35-24 lead. Middle Tennessee got to within 10 of the Lady Vol lead, 41-31, with 15:50 remaining on a Lymon three-pointer. Tennessee responded with a three pointer of its own by Spani off an assist from Bjorklund. In addition to Johnson, Bjorklund and sophomore Shekinna Stricklen each tallied double figures. Bjorklund tossed in 16 points, while dishing out five assists and grabbing three steals. Stricklen finished with 12 points, four assists and three rebounds. Helping clean up on the glass was redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain, who pulled down 11 rebounds and pitched in six points. The Murphy Center on the MTSU campus saw its first ever sellout for a women’s game, drawing a standing room only crowd of 11,802, just five spectators shy of the Murphy Center record of 11,807 for any game there.

GAME 3: #12/17 VIRGINIA Junior Angie Bjorklund was feeling it on Sunday afternoon at John Paul Jones Arena against #12/17 Virginia in Charlottesville, Va. Monica Wright, the Cavaliers preseason All-American, said so. “She tore it up tonight. She was just so hot,” said Wright. Bjorklund finished with a game high 24 points, including five three pointers in leading the #6/5 Lady Vols to a 77-63 win in a hostile JPJ Arena on Nov. 22. It was the Spokane Valley, Wash., native’s 34th career double digit scoring game and the seventh outing in her time at Rocky Top that she has scored at least 20 in a game. Bjorklund’s shooting from beyond the arc was instrumental for the Lady Vols. Midway through the first half, she scored six points in 21 seconds to give UT a 32-19 lead. Not even two minutes into the second half, the Cavaliers had cut the Tennessee lead to 42-39, when Bjorklund converted a fourpoint play which silenced the record-crowd of 11,895. On the next play at the defensive end, she grabbed the rebound, came down the floor and found freshman Taber Spani for a threepointer to put UT up 49-39. A trio of Tennessee sophomores also had a big impact on the win. Knoxville native Glory Johnson scored 14 points and grabbed six rebounds. In addition, Johnson was charged with defending Wright, who scored 35 against UT a year ago, but was held to 21 this time around. Shekinna Stricklen scored 20 points - her sixth career 20-point plus performance - grabbed eight rebounds and dished out a season-high six assists. Center Kelley Cain was limited to only six points, but her inside presence opened the perimeter up for the Lady Vol guards. Cain added six rebounds and six blocks, one off her career high and tied for third best in a single game for Tennessee. The Lady Vols owned the rebounding edge, 46-42, for the third time in as many games this season. UT’s 40 first half points were its most in the first 20 minutes this season.

GAME 5: UCLA The UCLA Bruins made the trek to Knoxville for the first time since Nov. 16, 2006, but the Bruin coaching staff was very familiar with Thompson-Boling Arena and the Lady Vols. The Bruins are led by former Lady Vol and assistant coach Nikki Caldwell. She is assisted by former Lady Vol Tasha Butts and a former Lady Vol practice player, Tony Perotti. Unfortunately for the Bruins, the outcome was the same as it has been the previous six times UT Head Coach Pat Summitt faced off against a former player, the Lady Vols came away victorious, 61-47. The Bruins started off hot and led the entire first half after shooting 42.9 percent in the first stanza. The UCLA defense limited the Tennessee offense to just 9-of-31 shooting, 29 percent, in the first half. Freshman Taber Spani scored eight of UT’s final 11 points, including the last five straight. The Lee’s Summit, Mo., native tied the game at 25 apiece on a pair of free throws with 30 seconds left before the halftime horn. A late Bruin field goal gave UCLA a 27-25 lead at the break. UT held UCLA without a field goal from the 4:56 mark of the first half to just four seconds remaining, going on an 11-1 run to tie the game at 25. The Lady Vols would continue that run, extending it to 18-3 and a 32-27 lead nearly five minutes into the second half. Spani finished with a team high 16 points for the second time this season and added six rebounds. Junior Angie Bjorklund tallied 12 points, all of which came in the second half, and tied Shannon Bobbitt for fourth with 147 career three pointers. Sophomore Glory Johnson tallied 11 points and seven rebounds while classmate Kelley Cain tied her season and career high with 11 boards and pitched in eight points. Sophomore Shekinna Stricklen continued to be a jack-of-all-trades, finishing with eight boards, six points and three assists. The Lady Vols won the battle of the boards for the fifth time in as many games this season, 49-35.
