TONIGHT’S GAME The #4/4-ranked Tennessee Lady Vols (15-1, 3-0 SEC) return home to face cross-state SEC rival and #22-ranked Vanderbilt (13-4, 2-2 SEC) on Sunday, Jan. 17 in an ESPNU game at 6 p.m. In the pre-season polls, Tennessee was picked to finish #1 by the coaches and #2 by the media in the SEC while Florida was slated to finish #5 by the coaches and #4 by the media in league play. WORTH NOTING ABOUT TONIGHT’S GAME • Last season in two meetings with Vanderbilt, (now graduated) senior Alex Fuller really carried the Lady Vol banner averaging 14.5 ppg and 10.5 rpg against the Commodores. (Then) rookies Shekinna Stricklen and Kelley Cain turned in identical 12.0 ppg and 5.5 rpg worksheets while Angie Bjorklund added 10.5 ppg and 5.5 rpg. Bjorklund connected on 67% of her treys against VU last season hitting 6-9. • Vandy was both the Lady Vols first and last SEC games of the 2008-09 regular season. In the opening SEC contest on the road in Nashville, the Tennessee youngsters were a bit overwhelmed. The ‘Dores scored 23 points off of UT miscues and tallied 40 points in the paint in the 74-58 loss. At home on March 1, UT closed out the SEC campaign with a 75-66 win over Vandy. However, the Commodores once again tallied 23 points off of UT turnovers. • Tennessee has eclipsed 100,000 fans at home for an amazing 16th consecutive year and currently averages 12,598 fans per game in Knoxville. Conversely, the Commodores have played to 38,792 fans in Nashville (10 games) for an average of 3,879 per game . The largest crowd Vandy has played in front of this season was 9,149 fans at Notre Dame on Dec. 31. Tonight’s attendance should eclipse the 15,000 mark. • UT has gone from the outhouse to the penthouse in field goal percentage. Last season, the Lady Vols averaged a program worst .413 from the field. This season, Tennessee has flipped the field and is averaging .470 shooting accuracy. • Last year, in the 11 loss season, a bright spot was the Lady Vols perfect record in Southeastern Conference games at home, 7-0. UT recorded SEC wins in Thompson-Boling Arena over Kentucky (69-64), South Carolina (68-56), Ole Miss (60-59), Georgia (73-43), Alabama (80-61), Mississippi State (82-68) and #19/21-ranked Vanderbilt (75-66). • This year, the Lady Vols hope to redeem themselves for a dismal (program worst) 2-5 SEC road campaign last season. Tennessee managed a 76-67 victory at Arkansas on Jan. 22, 2009 and fought for an 63-56 win over Mississippi State in Starkville on Jan. 29, 2009, producing the only SEC road W’s. LADY VOLS AT A GLANCE This is the Lady Vols’ 36th season under Head Coach Pat Summitt… She starts a senior-less team for the first time in her tenure... Summitt has compiled a staggering 1,020-194 overall record… Collected her record 1000th coaching win with a 73-43 decision over Georgia on Feb. 5, 2009… She passed Dean Smith (879 wins) for most NCAA collegiate basketball wins of all-time with a 75-54 victory over Purdue on Mar. 22, 2005 …Her 2006-07 and 2007-08 squads were crowned as the NCAA Champions producing the program’s seventh and eighth titles…Last season, UT finished with a 22-11 overall record and lost in the First Round of the 2009 NCAA Tournament. This season, UT returned 10 letterwinners and welcomed a talented three player rookie class… The 2009-10 season marked the Lady Vol debut for freshmen: #4 Kamiko Williams, a 5-11 guard from Clarksville, Tenn., #13 Taber Spani, a 6-1 forward/guard from Lee’s Summit, Mo., and #34 Faith Dupree, a 6-3 forward/center from Knoxville, Tenn. (on Nov. 23 UT announced that Dupree would sit-out this season). OUR SCHEDULE THIS WEEK The Lady Vols return home after a pair of SEC road games and will welcome #NR/22-ranked Vanderbilt (13-4, 2-2 SEC) on Jan. 17 at 6 p.m. on ESPNU. Tennessee then hits the road for the toughest back-toback SEC road schedule in recent memory -- in “Contenders or Pretenders Week” -- traveling to #6-ranked Georgia (16-1, 3-1 SEC) on Jan. 21 and then to #12/15-ranked LSU (13-2, 2-1 SEC) on Jan. 24. ON THIS DAY IN LADY VOL BASKETBALL HISTORY UT is 12-4 in games played on Jan. 17. The Lady Vols are 5-0 at home, 7-4 on the road and 0-0 on neutral courts. The last time out on Jan. 17, the #1-ranked Lady Vols defeated Kentucky, 65-40, in Lexington in 2008.

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


Game Notes • Tennessee vs. Vanderbilt • Jan. 17, 2010 TENNESSEE OPENED SEC PLAY Tennessee started play in the new 16-game SEC league schedule this season with a win over South Carolina, 79-62, in Knoxville on Jan. 7. Previously, the SEC schedule had consisted of a 14-game schedule. The Lady Vols were picked to win the SEC by the coaches while the media had Tennessee finishing second behind LSU. In the new expanded format, the Lady Vols will face Florida, South Carolina, LSU and Ole Miss in home-and-home games this season, and Vanderbilt twice as the “natural rival” in SEC play. AMAZING AT HOME VS. THE SEC Since Tennessee began contesting games with SEC opponents, the Lady Vols have produced a 17112 record in home games. Only six SEC teams have ever managed a victory over the Lady Vols in Knoxville – Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU and Ole Miss. Georgia has won three games on UT’s turf while Auburn, Kentucky, Ole Miss and LSU have registered two wins each and Florida one win. Georgia was the only team to defeat UT at home in the 1990s (1991 & 1996). LSU and Florida are the only SEC teams to defeat UT at home in the 21st century. IT WAS INCREDIBLE From 1980-1997, the Lady Vols claimed a total of six SEC regular season titles in 17 years. From 19982004, Tennessee captured seven consecutive SEC regular season crowns producing an amazing 109-4 record. UT’s only league losses were to Vandy, Georgia and LSU (twice) during this stretch. EIGHT WAS GREAT Over the years, eight Lady Vols teams have gone undefeated in SEC play: 1993, ‘94, ‘95, ‘98, 2001, ‘03, ‘04 and ‘07. UT WINNING STREAKS VS. SEC TEAMS School Win Streak and last loss Alabama 35 in a row, since 3-3-1984 Arkansas 15 in row, since 12-29-1996 Auburn no streak, 3-7-09 (2 losses) Florida 2 in a row, since 2-8-09 Georgia 8 in a row, since 3-6-2004 Kentucky no streak, 2-19-09 (1 loss) LSU no streak, 2-26-09 (1 loss) Mississippi 17 in a row, since 2-4-1996 Mississippi State 31 in a row, never lost to MSU South Carolina 37 in a row, since 1-23-1980 Vanderbilt 1 in a row, since 1-11-09 RARE SEC ROAD LOSSES FOR SUMMITT Lady Vol coach Pat Summitt’s teams rarely lose on the road in the SEC but last year was the exception with five losses on the road against just two wins. Last year, the loss to Vanderbilt on Jan. 11, 2009 was the 30th SEC road loss suffered by a Summitt-coached Lady Vol team and halted a 17-game SEC road winning streak. Two weeks later, UT also lost, this time at #6/5 Auburn and two weeks after that #11/13 Florida defeated the Lady Vols.

another SEC road loss for UT, this time a 66-56 decision a the hands of the Kentucky Wildcats and a week later it was a road loss at LSU, 63-61.

The ‘Dores snapped a two-game road skid in conference games to avoid its worst start to league play since the 1991-92 season. The Lady Bulldogs came in with the nation’s fourth-best defense, holding opponents to 50.1 points and a mere 32.7 shooting percentage. They gave up a seasonhigh in both to the Commodores who shot 46.3 percent and outrebounded Georgia 39-24, helping them get 15 second-chance points. Georgia led only once on James’ 3-pointer less than two minutes in. The Commodores led 31-27 at halftime. After the break, Lauren Lueders hit a trey that pushed VU’s lead to 44-33 with 16:33 to go and six minutes later Porsha Phillips scored to pull Georgia to within 46-40 with 10:53 remaining. Vandy then went on a 16-0 run and held a 62-40 advantage by the time Jasmine James ended Georgia’s drought with a pair of free throws with 4:44 to go. LAST MEETING WITH VU IN KNOXVILLE On “Senior Night” in Thompson-Boling Arena, Head Coach Pat Summitt wanted to emphasize the importance of the contest with in-state rival and No.19/21-ranked Vanderbilt by donning an orange suit, while the rest of the coaching staff sported orange suit coats. The Lady Vols responded by once again denying the Commodores’ bid for their first win in Knoxville, 75-66. Lone senior Alex Fuller, who was honored prior to the game, responded with 17 points and a career-best 14 rebounds. It marked the Shelbyville, Tenn., native’s third career doubledouble, all of which came in the 2008-09 season. A back-and-forth first half saw the Lady Vols head into the lockerroom trailing by three.The Lady Vols would break open a 73-59 lead on the strength of a 12-1 run from the 5:44 mark of the second half to just under one minute remaining. The win improved UT’s record against Vanderbilt to 53-7 all-time and prevented the Commodores from claiming their first regular-season sweep of the Lady Vols and their first win in Knoxville. Freshman Shekinna Stricklen scored a team-high 18 points, 15 of which came in the second half after Coach Summitt challenged her at the break. The rookie added eight boards and six assists. Sophomore Angie Bjorklund tallied 16 points on the strength of five three-pointers. She added five

boards and four assists, playing all 40 minutes. Redshirt freshman Kelley Cain added 15 points on 7-of-8 shooting, six rebounds and two block.

Sophomore Alyssia Brewer has been the Lady Vols most deadly shooter after the first 20 minutes. Brewer is canning 72.2 percent of her shots in the second half (39-54). Sophomore Shekinna Stricklen has been more aggressive attacking the basket and leads the team with trips to the line in the final stanza (30-34) for a sizzling 88 percent. Opponents probably wish halftime was cancelled with the coaching-up junior Angie Bjorklund has been getting at the break. In the second half, Bjorklund has been nailing three-pointers at a ridiculous pace of 65.0 percent (33-51) and has been deadly overall canning 56 percent of all second half field goals (49-87). STEPHANIE GLANCE SUBS IN FOR COACH D Lady Vol assistant basketball coach and recruiting coordinator Daedra Charles-Furlow, affectionately known as “Coach D,” announced on Dec. 1 that she is dealing with medical issues.

AMAZING SUMMITT NUMBERS •Summitt has faced 160 opponents in 1,214 total games and teams from 35 conferences •47% of her 1,214 total games have been played versus ranked teams (574 total games against ranked opponents) with 417 victories versus ranked opponents •156 all-time Lady Vols have contributed to 1,020 wins. •72% of those all-time players have gone on to be decorated as Olympians, All-Americans, USA National Team members, All-SEC performers, Academic All-Americans, Academic AllSEC, etc.

In her sideline coaching and recruiting absence, basketball staffer Stephanie Glance was activated to both coach and recruiter when Charles-Furlow was unable to make the pre-Christmas trip to the West Coast. “I am dealing with some personal medical issues at this time,” said Charles-Furlow. “It is possible that there may be times when I am unable to travel. For that reason, I decided to make this announcement since it will affect my duties as recruiting coordinator.” A former Lady Vol Olympian and All-American, Charles-Furlow joined the Lady Vol staff in May 2008 replacing Nikki Caldwell who accepted the head coaching position at UCLA. “Daedra’s health and well-being is our first concern,” said head coach Pat Summitt. “During the next several months she needs to be focusing on her health. For that reason, I will be designating my special assistant, Stephanie Glance, to fill this temporary role.”

BAUGH HAD SURGERY Jenny Moshak, University of Tennessee Associate Athletics Director for Sports Medicine, announced on Jan. 8, 2010, that Lady Vol basketball junior forward Vicki Baugh will sit out this season. “Drs. Greg Mathien and Russell Betcher, UT team orthopaedists, performed surgery on Vicki’s left knee this afternoon at UT Medical Center,” said Moshak. “The surgery addressed a meniscus tear and a partial medial meniscectomy was performed.” Baugh had been rehabbing her left knee since undergoing a second anterior cruciate ligament surgery on Feb. 24, 2009 and had hoped to return this season. According to Moshak, Baugh’s surgery went well today and she will begin rehabilitation of the knee immediately. Typical recovery generally ranges four to six weeks. “Vicki had been making solid progress up until early December when she felt her knee move awkwardly,” said Moshak. “She began to experience swelling and diagnostic testing revealed meniscal damage which was repaired today. The good news, in the words of her doctors, is that the ACL looks pristine. That is outstanding!” said Moshak. On Feb. 2, 2009, the 6-4 forward from Sacramento, Cal., re-injured her ACL in an 80-70 loss at #2-ranked Oklahoma. The injury occurred during the second half as Baugh was helping her Lady Vol team rally against the Sooners. Dr. Greg Mathien diagnosed the ACL tear on Feb. 3, 2009 and Drs. Mathien and Betcher performed surgery on Feb. 24, 2009, to address the ACL revision and repaired a medial meniscus tear of her knee. HOW BOUT SHEKINNA STRICKLEN!

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


Game Notes • Tennessee vs. Vanderbilt • Jan. 17, 2010 After crashing to the floor, with what looked like a serious injury, after playing just two minutes and not returning to the Old Dominion game Shekinna Stricklen returned the very next game to have a night career . On Jan. 3, 2010 versus #14/15-Oklahoma, the Lady Vol sophomore tallied Tennessee’s second ever triple-double with 17 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists. The only other previous triple-double in history was 25-years ago when senior All-America Shelia Collins recorded 18 points, 10 rebounds and 10 steals in an incredible performance at Florida State on Feb. 8, 1985. Stricklen started out slow in the first half and earned a three-minute stint on the bench next to coach Pat Summitt who told her she looked like she was “asleep” to start the game. By halftime, Strick had turned in nine points, seven rebounds and seven assists in 17 minutes. She achieved her triple-double with 8:58 to go in the game grabbing her 10th rebound on the night. ON BREAK The University of Tennessee was officially on holiday break following the conclusion of final exams on Dec. 10. Spring semester classes resumed on January 13, 2010. During the break, the Lady Vols had eight games -- practically onefourth of its schedule of 29 games: vs. Rutgers (W, 68-54), Louisville (W,86-56), at #2-ranked Stanford (L, 52-67), at San Francisco (W, 89-34), Old Dominion (W, 102-62), #14/15-ranked Oklahoma (W, 96-75)), South Carolina (W, 79-62) and at Mississippi State (75-48). BJORKLUND MOVING THE CHAINS Tennessee junior sharpshooter Angie Bjorklund has climbed into sole possession of third place on the Tennessee three-point career charts. She has 184 made treys for her career moving her ahead of Brittany Jackson in fourth with 161...Kara Lawson in second with 256 and Shanna Zolman leading the pack with 266. ANGIE B LOOKING TOWARD 1,000 POINTS Lady Vol junior Angie Bjorklund is now just 83 points away from 1,000 career points. She scored 318 as a rookie and 344 as a sophomore. This season, she has 255 to date for a career total of 917. She will become the 34th all-time player to reach the 1,000 point club.

HEY! WE LOVE A HAPPY MEAL The Tennessee Lady Vols leads the nation with the number of McDonald’s High School AllAmericans on their roster in 2009-10 with nine players. Tennessee’s McDonald’s All-Americans: Vicki Baugh, Angie Bjorklund, Alyssia Brewer, Kelley Cain, Amber Gray, Glory Johnson, Alicia Manning, Shekinna Stricklen and Taber Spani. A LOOK AT ATTENDANCE The Tennessee Lady Vols staying power with the home fans is evidenced by the huge numbers who have turned out for games in Knoxville since 1990. Tennessee has won the attendance challenge 14 out of the last 20 years. LADY VOL STREAKS The Lady Vols last loss at home was against Duke, 62-54, on Feb. 16, 2009, since then UT has won 10 home games. The last time UT lost on the road was on Dec. 19, 2009 at Stanford, since then, UT has won three road games. The last time the Lady Vols lost on a neutral court was against Ball State, 71-55, in the 2009 NCAA First Round

game on Mar. 22, 2009. Since that time, UT is 2-0 on a neutral court. THOMPSON-BOLING ARENA • WELCOME TO “THE SUMMITT” The playing court in the Thompson-Boling Arena on the University of Tennessee campus donned a new look for the 2005-06 season. After 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 315-20 (.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 (15-0), 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 ThompsonBoling 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, 1996-97, 1999-00, 2001-02, 2003-04, 2005-06 and 2008-09 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).

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


Game Notes • Tennessee vs. Vanderbilt • Jan. 17, 2010 ing Auburn, 68-61, DePaul, 96-89, and Stanford, 70-66.

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 417-156 (.725) versus ranked teams. The 2008-09 Lady Vols were a dismal 4-8 versus ranked teams. LADY VOLS MAKE SPORTS ILLUSTRATED LIST Sports Illustrated announced the 25 best sports franchises from the decade of the 2000s and ranked the 25 best overall teams from the four major professional sports -- NFL, NBA, MLB and the NHL -- plus college football and men’s and women’s college basketball. The Los Angeles Lakers took the top spot on the list while the Tennessee Lady Vols -- who won two NCAA basketball titles - were in 24th place. Connecticut women’s basketball earned the third slot after winning five NCAA titles during the decade. The Lady Vols and the Huskies were the only women’s teams to make the list. The two were also mentioned as the ninth best rivalry of the 2000’s. The Lady Vols swept the last three meetings between the two teams in a rivalry halted after the 2007 season.

Coach Pat Summitt dropped the names from the back of the jerseys prior to the start of the 2004-05 season. Before the Lady Vols played Louisville on Dec. 16, Summitt announced to the crowd that she had an early Christmas present for them -- names on jerseys -- the crowd erupted

into cheers when the team came out to show their new duds. GOT THE PATCH Following the reporting of grades for the Fall semester two more Lady Vols added the Vol Scholar patch to their uniform. Rookies Taber Spani recorded a perfect 4.0 GPA and Faith Dupree pulled all As and a B to earn a patch.

The VOLScholar program is an initiative of UT’s Thornton Athletics Student Life Center which is a comprehensive academic and citizenship-building 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. JOINING THE LADY VOL FOLD University of Tennessee Lady Vol basketball head coach Pat Summitt announced the early signing of two student-athletes to National Letters of Intent for the 2010-11 academic school year.

Steele High School in Cibolo, Texas. UNBROKEN CIRCLE The 2009-10 Lady Vols are taking their “Circle of Influence” media guide them into a postgame center court jump circle huddle with their opponents. Before the game with Baylor, UT junior Angie Bjorklund invited the Lady Bears to join them for a postgame prayer. Each opponent has followed suit meeting at center court after the game for the moment of thanks. 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, 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.

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


Game Notes • Tennessee vs. Vanderbilt • Jan. 17, 2010 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. 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. 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 1985-86 season when UT started in the number nine spot. HIGH SCHOOL TO LADY VOL TEAMMATES This season marks the fourth time in Lady Vol Basketball history (under Summitt) that high school teammates are taking to the floor in a Tennessee uniform. Freshman post Faith Dupree joins fellow Webb School teammate and UT sophomore Glory Johnson in the line-up this season. Previously, Cherokee H.S. (Canton, Ga.) teammates Debbie Groover and Cindy Ely roamed the paint from 1977-81; Baldwin Co. H.S. (Milledgeville, Ga.) teammates Val Freeman and Lisa Webb played from 1983-88 -- both even tore ACLs one week apart as sophomores, and Shelbyville Central H.S. (Tenn.) teammates Michelle Johnson and Tiffany Woosley played during the 1991-95 seasons.

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 1,108250-2 (.814) all-time record.

The Lady Vols know something about home court winning streaks – Tennessee shares the NCAA record at 69 consecutive wins at home.

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) tried to accomplish the feat. Former players are 0-9 against their mentor. HOME COURT STREAKS BROKEN BY UT Throughout the years, UT has been responsible for breaking a number of lengthy home court winning streaks, 20 to be exact. Last season, UT snapped GWU’s 17-game streak at the Smith Center on Dec. 2 and ODU’s nation-leading 29 game winning streak at the Ted Constant Center on Dec. 18. SEC Games Only

Game Notes • Tennessee vs. Vanderbilt • Jan. 17, 2010 2009-10 LADY VOL GAME NOTES ALMANAC SHE LOVED CAMP SUMMITT UT coach Pat Summitt loved the court time she had with her team over the holiday break. It was time for re-emphasizing fundamentals and fine-tuning before conference cranked up. In the first 15 games, Summitt has seen a number of positives from her seniorless team: only one opponent has shot 40% or better against the 2009-10 Lady Vols -- Oklahoma at .446 in a 21 point loss... the Lady Vols bounced back from the tough loss at Stanford and its worst shooting night (.328) to record its fourth 50% plus shooting night on the year tossing in .531 versus San Francisco... That performance was followed by the seventh best shooting night in Lady Vol history as UT canned 67.2 percent from the field against Old Dominion... and followed that up with a 51.3% effort against Oklahoma for the sixth game of 50% or better shooting on the season... Last year, the 2008-09 Lady Vols turned in the worst field goal percentage in Tennessee history at 41.3% VERSUS 2009 FINAL FOUR TEAMS Oklahoma was the third of the four 2009 NCAA Final Four teams that the Lady Vols faced this season -- UT defeated Louisville, 88-56 on Dec. 16, lost at #2-ranked Stanford, 67-52, on Dec. 19 and defeated #14/15 Oklahoma, 96-75 on Jan. 3. IS THERE A BIG 12 DIVISION FOR US? This season, Tennessee might qualify for divisional play in the Big 12. The Lady Vols defeated four opponents from that conference: #7/4 Baylor in Knoxville (74-65), knocked off Texas Tech, 91-53, in San Antonio and defeated #17 Texas, 78-58, and #14/15 Oklahoma, 96-75 in Knoxville. The Lady Vols finished 4-0 in the Big 12 Conference play this season. TENNESSEE’S FIRST OKIE When 6-3 sophomore forward Alyssia Brewer (Sapulpa, OK/Sapulpa H.S.) signed with the Lady Vols, it marked Tennessee’s first player from the state of Oklahoma. This season, the rangy lefty is averaging 7.9 ppg and 4.6 rpg while shooting a blistering 60.9% from the field (39-64). STATISTICALLY VS. THE BIG 12 IN 2009-10 In three wins over Big 12 teams this season (Baylor, 74-65 win; Texas Tech, 91-53 win and Texas, a 78-58 win), the Lady Vols have averaged a +22.3 margin of victory (81.0-58.7 ppg) over these schools. Additionally, UT has cashed in on 46.7% of its field goals while holding Big 12 opponents to just 32.4%. Fouls have been nearly even, 57 for Tennessee and 58 for Big 12 opponents but the dozen school conference has cashed in at the charity stripe canning 53-73 (.726) free throws while the Lady Vols have managed just 41-59 (.695). STAFFERS HAVE -- NEVER A FORMER PLAYER ...have 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.” Former Lady Vol Tanya Haave got the next crack at beating the old ball coach but her San Francisco Dons were defeated by UT, 89-34. 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 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 alltime 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 70-57,

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. The next player to try the knock-off - -San Francisco’s Tanya Haave. RAISING CAIN UT redshirt sophomore center Kelley Cain returned to the starting line-up against Rutgers. Cain suffered a concussion against UCLA on Nov. 28 and was held out of the George Washington game on Dec. 1. Cain was cleared to play against #17-ranked Texas on Dec. 6 and came off the bench to score 12 points (6-6 FG), grab six boards and swat away four shots. She followed that up with a nine point, nine rebound and six blocked shot performance against Rutgers. SOLID SHOWING AGAINST THE HORNS Against #17-ranked Texas, Tennessee used an 8-0 run to build an 11-5 lead (at 14:55) and then put together a 12-0 run over 4:55 to take a 31-18 lead with 5:29 to play in the first half. UT’s largest deficit of the first half was two at 18:23; it’s largest lead was 17 at 0:27. Tennessee led at the half for the fifth time this season. In those games, UT is 5-0. Texas went without a point from the 3:12 mark of the first half to the 16:29 point of the second, allowing Tennessee a 14-0 run to build a 48-24 lead. Tennessee outrebounded Texas 42-41; UT has led on the boards in all seven games NOGGIN KNOCKERS The Lady Vols only had nine players available to play against George Washington on Dec. 1. Tennessee starting sophomore pivot Kelley Cain missed the game with George Washington due to a concussion suffered in the UCLA game after dropping in eight points and grabbing 11 rebounds against the Bruins. Cain also missed some time last season after suffering a concussion in practice. She has started five games this season and averages 8.4 ppg and 8.6 rpg. CALLING ALL POSTS The Lady Vols went into the game with George Washington on Dec. 1 pretty thin in the post. Sidelined were four post players -- 6’1” Amber Gray and 6’3” Faith Dupree for the season; 6’4” Vicki Baugh who is coming back from a torn ACL and 6’6” Kelley Cain who will miss due to a concussion. That left 6’1” rookie Taber Spani and a pair of 6’3” sophomores in Glory Johnson and Alyssia Brewer to shore up the middle for the Lady Vols. SAPULPA WAS IN THE HOUSE Sophomore post Alyssia Brewer of Sapulpa, Oklahoma, showed up in a big way against George Washington on Dec. 1. UT was without starting center Kelley Cain who was being held out due to a concussion suffered in the UCLA game. The 6’3” Brewer came in the first half at the 14:49 mark and scored four quick layups and a free throw in eight minutes to record nine points in the opening stanza. In the second half, she was inserted at the 14:13 mark and played the rest of the game totaling 14 second stanza points for a career high 23 points (11-15 FG) to go along with seven rebounds. 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 season. Against #7/4-ranked Baylor she logged four minutes and grabbed a rebound. In San Antonio at the ESPNU Road to the Championship, she played 18 minutes and tossed in five points, grabbed six rebounds and had three assists in 18 minutes against Texas Tech. Tennessee’s roster now drops to 11 active players for the 2009-10 season. Also sitting out this year, following both shoulder and brain surgery, is 6-1 sophomore forward Amber Gray of West Chester, Ohio. 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, 6254) 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. CROWDS A PLENTY Playing in front of huge crowds is nothing new to Tennessee Lady Vol basketball but the week of Nov. 22-28 was one to note. In three games (two on the road), the Lady Vols played in front of a total of 37,873 fans (an average of 12,624 per game) – including two record-breaking crowds on the road. On Nov. 25 at Middle Tennessee State, a new record crowd of 11,802 was on hand for the Thanksgiving eve clash. MTSU’s Murphy Center’s capacity is listed at 11,520. On Nov. 22 at Virginia, a new record crowd of 11,895 crammed the stands on “Hotdog Night” at the John Paul Jones Arena. Tennessee had one game at home during that span against UCLA on Nov. 28 where 14,176 turned out for a matinee contest. Last season, Tennessee played in front of 17 crowds of 10,000-plus. 1200 GAMES Coach Pat Summitt coached in her 1,200th college game when she faced Texas Tech on Nov. 17. 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. 600TH WIN Tennessee’s win over Baylor to open the 200910 season was Lady Vol Coach Pat Summitt’s 600th victory over a non-conference team. She is now 604129 versus non-conference opposition over 36 seasons. 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. 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, 8074, 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.

ELITE COMPANY Rookie forward/guard Taber Spani became the 13th Lady Vol player to start her very first game as a Lady Vol when she started against Baylor. Last season, when Coach Pat Summitt started freshmen Shekinna Stricklen and Glory Johnson against San Francisco, it marked only the 11th and 12th time in her coaching career that a freshman started her very first game at Tennessee. The list of opening day rookie starters: Taber Spani 2009, Glory Johnson and Shekinna Stricklen, 2008, 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, 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 53rd57th 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 alltime 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.

Game Notes • Tennessee vs. Vanderbilt • Jan. 17, 2010 ● Jenny Moshak, University of Tennessee Associate Athletics Director for Sports Medicine, announced on Jan. 8, 2010, that Lady Vol basketball junior forward Vicki Baugh will sit out this season. “Drs. Greg Mathien and Russell Betcher, UT team orthopaedists, performed surgery on Vicki’s left knee this afternoon at UT Medical Center,” said Moshak. “The surgery addressed a meniscus tear and a partial medial meniscectomy was performed.” Baugh had been rehabbing her left knee since undergoing a second anterior cruciate ligament surgery on Feb. 24, 2009 and had hoped to return this season. According to Moshak, Baugh’s surgery went well today and she will begin rehabilitation of the knee immediately. Typical recovery generally ranges four to six weeks. “Vicki had been making solid progress up until early December when she felt her knee move awkwardly,” said Moshak. “She began to experience swelling and diagnostic testing revealed meniscal damage which was repaired today. “The good news, in the words of her doctors, is that the ACL looks pristine. That is outstanding!” said Moshak. On Feb. 2, 2009, the 6-4 forward from Sacramento, Cal., re-injured her ACL in an 8070 loss at #2-ranked Oklahoma. The injury occurred during the second half as Baugh was helping her Lady Vol team rally against the Sooners. Dr. Greg Mathien diagnosed the ACL tear on Feb. 3, 2009 and Drs. Mathien and Betcher performed surgery on Feb. 24, 2009, to address the ACL revision and repaired a medial meniscus tear of her knee. A key member of the squad heading into her sophomore season, she had seen very limited action since suffering a sprain of the knee in practice on Jan. 1, 2009, in preparation for the game at Rutgers. In the 2008-09 campaign, she played in 14 games and started 10. She was averaging 6.5 ppg, 7.3 rpg prior to the injury. The February 2009 incident was Baugh’s second ACL injury. She was injured in the last game of her 2007-08 rookie season, in the 2008 NCAA title game versus Stanford. Baugh’s slashing-through-the-key lay-up gave the Lady Vols a double-digit lead (55-44) that they would not relinquish down the stretch en route to NCAA Championship number eight. Unfortunately for Baugh, that was the play when the injury occurred to her left knee. On April 11, 2008, an MRI confirmed that Baugh had torn her ACL and she had surgery on May 13, 2008. During her freshman season, Baugh played in all 38 games helping the Lady Vols to a 36-2 record. She averaged 5.3 ppg and 4.0 rpg in 13.1 minutes per contest. She shot a team best 55.2 percent from the field (79-143) and knocked in 77.8 percent of her charity tosses. She recorded six games in double-digits scoring including a season high 12 point effort versus Purdue in the NCAA Tournament. Baugh had a monster game on the boards against Louisiana Tech hauling in 16 rebounds. With Baugh’s status now known, Tennessee is down three post players for the remainder of the season as 6-3 freshman post Faith Dupree is sidelined with back problems and 6-1 sophomore Amber Gray is recovering from both shoulder and brain surgeries. ● Has 10 career double digit scoring games and seven career double figure rebound contests

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.

GAME 6: GEORGE WASHINGTON The Tennessee Lady Vols entered their Dec. 1 match-up with George Washington with only nine available players as redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain did not play after suffering a concussion against UCLA. The nine available made the most of their opportunity and all played at least 18 minutes en route to a 93-53 win over the Colonials. Sophomore Alyssia Brewer made the most of her season high 22 minutes as she tallied a career high 23 points on 11of-15 shooting and grabbed a season best seven rebounds. The Lady Vols didn’t start the way Head Coach Pat Summitt would like, trailing 10-9 nearly five minutes into the game. From that point, UT used an 11-2 run over 2:53 to build a 20-12 lead. Over the final 6:54 of the first half, the Lady Vols only surrendered a pair of GW free throws on their way to a 16-2 run and took a 54-24 lead into the break. At the half, sophomore Glory Johnson had notched her seventh career double double. The Knoxville native finished with 16 points and 12 rebounds. Classmate Shekinna Stricklen recorded her fourth career double double with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Tennessee dominated the paint, outscoring GW 34-4 in the first half and 54-12 in the paint for the game. The Lady Vols also owned the rebounding advantage, 4940, for the sixth time in as many games this season. Junior Angie Bjorklund notched her 150th career three pointer and took sole possession of fourth place in the UT record books. Sophomore Alicia Manning finished with career highs of six assists and four steals, to go with five points and five rebounds in a season high 30 minutes of action. Bjorklund, junior Sydney Smallbone and freshman Taber Spani all finished with nine points, in addition to the three Lady Vols who tallied double figures.

GAME 7: #17/17 TEXAS The Tennessee Lady Vols and a crowd of 13,434 welcomed the #17/17 Texas Longhorns to Thompson-Boling Arena for an ESPN2 national TV match-up on Dec. 6. Four Lady Vols finished in double figures and Tennessee converted at a 52.5 percent clip for the night as the Lady Vols cruised to a 78-58 win over the Longhorns. Earning Lady Vol Player of the Game honors was sophomore Shekinna Stricklen, who tallied 14 points, six rebounds and a game-high five assists in 28 minutes. Tennessee totaled a season high 23 helpers on 32 field goals made against Texas. After falling behind 5-3 early on, the Lady Vols put together an 8-0 run to claim an 11-5 lead just five minutes into the contest. Tennessee tore off runs of 12 straight, to take a 3118 lead with 5:29 left in the first half, and 14 straight, holding the Longhorns scoreless from the 3:12 mark of the first half to the 16:29 point of the second half and doubling up Texas 48-24. Junior Angie Bjorklund scored a team high 15 points to go with four assists and three rebounds. Sophomore Glory Johnson pitched in 14 points, five boards, two assists and a block. Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain did not start the contest, but finished with 12 points on a perfect 6-of6 shooting effort, six rebounds and four blocks in only 17 minutes of action. Sophomore Alyssia Brewer made her first career start and finished with seven rebounds and four points in 18 minutes. Classmate Alicia Manning tallied eight points, four assists and three rebounds in 16 minutes off the bench. Despite giving up 22 offensive rebounds to the Longhorns, Tennessee won the battle of the boards, 42-41, for the seventh time in as many games this season. The Lady Vols now own a 19-12 record all-time against Texas and have won four of the last five over the Longhorns.

GAME 8: RUTGERS The Tennessee Lady Vols traveled to New York City and the World’s Most Famous Arena, Madison Square Garden, for the third time to face the Rutgers Scarlet Knights in the second game of the Maggie Dixon Classic. On the strength of Shekinna Stricklen’s team high 19 points, the Lady Vols earned the “W”, 68-54, improving UT’s all-time record at MSG to 3-0, all three of which have come against Rutgers. Prior to facing the Lady Vols, Rutgers had been holding their opponents to only 54.7 points per game and 33.1 percent shooting. As in previous games this season, the Lady Vols were down early, 3-2, at the 17:36 mark of the first half, but once UT got the lead, it did not surrender the advantage. After pulling ahead, 4-3, on a Kelley Cain layup, Tennessee would not trail the rest of the game. The Lady Vols used a 14-2 run from the 16:42 mark of the first half to the 10:56 point to build a 21-7 lead. The Scarlet Knights continued to fight and play tough defense, and were able to pull within five, 30-25, as the first half came to a close. Rutgers got within one at 40-39 with 13:14 to play, but Tennessee put together an 8-0 run to the 8:44 mark, building a 48-39 lead. The Scarlet Knights were unable to recover and did not get within seven the rest of the contest. In addition to her 19 points, Stricklen tallied four steals, three rebounds and three assists. Sophomore Glory Johnson, who only played four minutes in the first half after picking up two fouls, finished with 10 points and seven rebounds. All of Johnson’s points and all but one of her boards came in the second stanza. Classmate Alyssia Brewer finished with 10 points and four rebounds in 16 minutes, while fellow post Kelley Cain tallied nine points, seven boards, six blocks and three assists. Junior Angie Bjorklund finished with eight points, five rebounds and four assists in playing nearly all 40 minutes.

GAME 9: LOUISVILLE Prior to the game, Head Coach Pat Summitt addressed the crowd of 11,084 and let them know that, for the first time since 2004-05, each individual would have their name on the back of their jersey, telling the fans “Merry Christmas”. Her team would return the present to coach Summitt as they downed the Louisville Cardinals, 86-56, as UofL became the 180th team all-time to face UT and the 12th current BIG EAST squad to square off against the Lady Vols. Entering the game, the Cardinals had averaged 74.3 points per game, but were limited to 56 and 31.7 percent shooting. Tennessee jumped off to a scorching hot start, building a 23-3 lead with 13:30 to play in the first half, including a stretch where UT went on an 18-0 run. However, the Cardinals would not give up and cut the Big Orange lead to seven (31-24) with 5:04 remaining before the first half horn sounded. The Tennessee defense stepped up and allowed only two Louisville field goals the rest of the half and went into the locker room with a 43-29 lead. It was the seventh time UT had lead after the first 20 minutes, but the first time that the Lady Vols had not trailed in the opening stanza this season. The second half provided much of the same as Tennessee extended its lead, reaching a 31-point margin (86-55) with 2:50 to play. Sophomore Alyssia Brewer led the Lady Vols with her third career double-double, posting 12 points and 10 rebounds. Junior Angie Bjorklund scored a team high 19 points and sophomore Shekinna Stricklen tossed in 15, pulled down eight rebounds and dished out six assists. Sophomore Glory Johnson hauled in double digit rebounds for the 10th time in her career, grabbing 10 caroms, to go with seven points. Tennessee tied the mark for second most blocks in a single game in school history with 12 and grabbed a season best 54 rebounds to Louisville’s 37. The Lady Vols have held an advantage on the boards in all nine contests this season.

GAME 10: #2/2 STANFORD The Tennessee Lady Vols suffered their first defeat, 67-52, of the 2009-10 season when they squared against the No. 2/2-ranked Stanford Cardinal on Dec. 19 at Maples Pavilion. The Lady Vol defense limited the Cardinal to only four points over the first 7:05 of the contest and Tennessee owned an 11-4 lead, but the UT shooting would go cold from there. Tennessee went into the lockerroom with only 18 points, tying for the sixth fewest first half points ever by a Lady Vol squad, and trailed 30-18. The Lady Vol offense mustered to shoot only 21.9 percent (7-of-32) in the first 20 minutes. Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain was the lone bright spot for the UT side in the opening half, scoring six points and grabbing five boards. Tennessee was unable to work the ball inside in the second half and Cain finished with six points, seven rebounds and three blocks. The Lady Vols opened the second half holding steady with the Cardinal and cut the Stanford lead to eight (38-30) with 13:47 to play in the contest. The Cardinal quickly responded by rippinig off seven straight over the next 1:25 to build a 15-point advantage (45-30) with 12:22 to play. Tennessee cut its deficit to 11 (60-49) with 2:46 to play on a pair of Angie Bjorklund free throws, but that’s as close as the Lady Vols would get. Bjorklund scored a team high 15 points and made three three pointers, tying her with Brittany Jackson for third in the UT record books with 161 career triples made. Sophomore Glory Johnson was the only other Lady Vol to score in double figures, as she finished with 13 points, seven rebounds and a pair of blocks. Tennessee tied a season-low with 34 rebounds and was outrebounded, 44-34, for the first time in 2009-10. The Lady Vol offense managed only four assists, the fewest on the season, while the Cardinal offense tallied 14 helpers on 22 field goals and four Stanford players finished in double figures.

GAME 12: OLD DOMINION If the Tennessee Lady Vols had developed any rust over the holiday break, it did not show as UT downed Old Dominion 102-62 on Dec. 30, 2009. It was the first time the Lady Vols had broken the centruy mark since Jan. 2, 2008, when UT claimed a 102-68 road win over the DePaul Blue Demons. The Tennessee shooting was red-hot as the Lady Vols converted 43-of-64 field goal attempts, good for a 67.2 percent clip. It was the seventh best shooting night in UT history. In the first half, UT was 26-of-37 from the field and owned a 57-31 lead at the break. It was the most first half points since UT scored 59 in the opening stanza against Chattanooga on Nov. 12, 2006. Tennessee opened the game on an 11-0 run and never trailed during the contest. Midway through the first half, UT used a 15-2 run over 4:50 to build a 36-15 lead. Sophmore Glory Johnson led five Lady Vols in double figure scoring as she posted her eighth career double double with 15 points and 10 rebounds as she came off the bench for the first time this season. Junior Angie Bjorklund tallied a game-high 19 points on 8-of-12 shooting, including a trio of three-pointers. Sophomore Alyssia Brewer tossed in 16 points, grabbed six boards, dished out three assists and blocked two shots in 22 minutes of action. Sophomore Briana Bass and freshman Kamiko Williams each added 11 points for UT. Bass converted on 4-of-5 field goals attempts, including a perfect 3-of-3 from beyond the arc for a season-best scoring game. In addition to the points, Williams dished out a season high six assists to go with three rebounds and two steals. The Lady Vols were given a scare when sophomore Shekinna Stricklen landed awkwardly on her right knee three minutes into the contest and had to be helped off the court. She tested fine and returned to the bench but did not play.

GAME 11: SAN FRANCISCO The Lady Vols bounced back from their first loss of the 2009-10 campaign with an 89-34 victory over the San Francisco Dons at War Memorial Gym in San Francisco, Calif. Junior Angie Bjorklund led UT with a game high 19 points on the strength of 7-of-10 shooting - including 4-of-5 from three-point range - in only 17 minutes of action. Bjorklund dished out four assists and grabbed a pair of steals. The Dons opened the game strong, feeding off the energy the crowd of 3,255 brought to the gym that Bill Russell and K.C. Jones helped make famous, and owned a 4-2 advantage just over two minutes into the contest. Over the next 4:23, Tennessee went on a 10-0 run and built a 12-4 lead, and would not look back. After stretching the lead to 24-11 with 10:04 left in the first stanza, the Lady Vols would go on a 24-6 run to end the half, including a stretch where UT went on a 13-0 tear to build a 37-11 lead. The second half saw the Lady Vol bench used almost exclusively as Tennessee outscored the Dons 41-17 in the final 20 minutes. Freshman Kamiko Williams shined the brightest for UT in the second stanza as she scored 10 of her 14 points, grabbed six of her eight boards, picked four steals and dished out three assists in 14 second half minutes. Sophomore Glory Johnson narrowly missed a double double as she finished with 13 points and nine rebounds. Despite shooting only 3-of-9 from the floor, she was 7-of-8 from the free throw line. Classmates Alicia Manning and Alyssia Brewer each finished with eight points. Manning hauled in eight rebounds, dished out three assists and grabbed three steals in 25 minutes. Brewer grabbed six rebounds and added a block and a steal in 24 minutes. The Lady Vol size advantage was quite evident as UT enjoyed a 52-32 rebounding edge, the 10th time in 2009-10 that Tennessee owned the glass. The Tennessee offense was able to work the ball inside and claimed a 36-2 paint points advantage.

GAME 13: #14/15 OKLAHOMA The Tennessee Lady Vols began the new year with a bang, downing the No. 14/15-ranked Oklahoma Sooners, 96-75, in front of 13,332 at Thompson-Boling Arena and a national TV audience on ESPN2 on Jan. 3. What those in attendance and watching on TV also witnessed was a night of history as UT sophomore Shekinna Stricklen recorded just the second triple-double in Lady Vol history, as she finished with 17 points, 13 rebounds and a career best 12 assists. Early in the game, however, UT Head Coach Pat Summitt was not pleased with what she was seeing from her point guard. “When she took me out, she told me that I wasn’t playing like a point guard and that I needed to step my game up to another level,” Stricklen said. “I just said ‘Yes ma’am, and I responded.” Stricklen wasn’t the only Lady Vol to post a big night. Junior shooting guard Angie Bjorklund torched the nets for 25 points, including a 5-of-8 performance from beyond the arc. The Sooners opened the game with a 9-2 run and held a 10 point advantage, 14-4, with 16:51 to play in the first half. The Lady Vols responded, and used a 13-2 run over 4:01 to build a 27-22 lead with 8:50 left in the opening stanza. Tennessee went into the break with the lead, 45-39, for the 10th time this season. In the second half, the Lady Vols pulled away, outscoring the Sooners 51-36 in the second frame. In addition to Bjorklund and Stricklen, sophomores Alyssia Brewer and Kelley Cain each posted double digit scoring nights. Brewer tossed in 13 points, to go with five rebounds, two blocks, an assist and a steal. Cain dumped in 10 points, hauled in eight boards and blocked five shots. The pair dominated the post and helped UT to a 44-22 points in the paint advantage and a 48-31 rebounding margin, the 12th time this season the Lady Vols have owned a positive rebound margin.

GAME 14: SOUTH CAROLINA The Tennessee Lady Vols opened the SEC portion of the 2009-10 schedule with a 79-62 victory over the South Carolina Gamecocks on Jan. 7. The win improved UT to 41-2 all-time against SC, extended the Lady Vols’ winning streak to 37 in the series and improved Tennessee’s record to 26-5 in conference openers. The Gamecocks and Lady Vols would go back and forth over the opening minutes and SC built a six point lead, 14-8, barely three minutes into the contest. The Tennessee defense stepped up and held the South Carolina offense without a field goal for over five and a half minutes to turn a 19-14 deficit into a 31-20 lead with 9:28 to play before the break. For the sixth time this season and the fourth straight game, UT shot above 50 percent from the field in the opening stanza and used the hot shooting to build a 47-33 lead at the break. It was the 11th time in 2009-10 that the Lady Vols have held the halftime advantage. After the break, South Carolina continued to fight and pulled within seven, 55-48, on a pair of Jewel May free throws with 12:36 to play. The UT defense held the SC offense without a field goal from the 13:39 mark of the second half with the score 53-46 to the 6:57 point and a 68-49 Lady Vol lead. The crowd of 1,462 was the second smallest at Thompson-Boling Arena due to bad weather. The smallest was when 1,461 fought the ice to see the Lady Vols down Mississippi State, 91-63, on Jan. 2, 1991. While the weather outside wrecked havoc on the crowd, junior Angie Bjorklund and sophomore Shekinna Stricklen were both hot. The two combined to shoot 17-of-32 for 44 points. Bjorklund tallied 23, including five three pointers and Stricklen added 21 points. In addition, Bjorklund finished with four boards, three assists and a steal, while Stricklen tallied six assists, two rebounds and three blocks. Sophomore Kelley Cain added eight points, five boards and six blocks while classmate Glory Johnson finished with nine points and nine rebounds.

GAME 15: MISSISSIPPI STATE The Tennessee Lady Vols went on the road for the first time in the 2010 SEC season and downed the Mississippi State Lady Bulldogs, 75-48, on Jan. 10 in Starkville. With the win, the Lady Bulldogs remain the only league foe to have never beaten the Lady Vols, with the all-time series standing at 31-0 in favor of UT. Sophomore Glory Johnson, who had been in and out of Coach Summitt’s dog house over the previous week, was back in the starting lineup and posted a double-double in the first half. It was the Knoxville native’s ninth career double-double as she finished with 16 points and a career-best 15 rebounds. Tennessee began the game on a 13-5 run over nearly the first five minutes and never trailed in the contest for the third time this season. The Lady Vol defense stifled the Mississippi State offense with its long and rangy zone defense. The Lady Bulldogs came into the contest averaging 78.4 ppg and converting field goals at a 43.2 clip. The UT defense limited MSU to season lows of 28.1 percent shooting and 48 points. Tennessee went into the half with a 39-18 lead, the 12th time in 2009-10 that the Lady Vols have enjoyed an advantage in the locker room. And for the 12th time, the Lady Vols claimed a victory. Senior Alexis Rack was the Lady Bulldogs leading scorer at 20.4 ppg and the UT defense held her to only five first half points and 19 for the game. Along with Johnson, junior Angie Bjorklund and freshman Taber Spani finished in double figure scoring for Tennessee. Bjorklund continued her hot streak, shooting 6-of-14 from the floor and 4-of-9 from three-point range to finish with 16 points. She added six boards, three steals and a pair of assists. Spani tossed in double digits for the first time since Nov. 28, as she tallied 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting. Sophomore Shekinna Stricklen continued to be a jack-of-alltrades as she notched nine points, nine rebounds and six assists. Redshirt-sophomore Kelley Cain added six points, five boards and two blocks in only 15 minutes of action.

GAME 16: FLORIDA The Tennessee Lady Vols overcame a season-high 25 turnovers and a poor first half shooting performance to down the Florida Gators, 66-64, in Gainesville on Jan. 14. Redshirt sophomore center Kelley Cain led the Lady Vols with her third career double double as she tallied game-highs of 17 points and 10 rebounds. Cain scored the first six points of the game as Tennessee raced to an 11-3 lead just 2:25 into the contest. After a Shekinna Stricklen three-pointer put the Lady Vols up 14-6 at the 14:41 mark of the first half, Florida went on a 9-0 run to take it’s first lead of the game, 15-14, on a Trumae Lucas fastbreak layup at the 11:31 point. The two sides would battle back-and-forth the rest of the opening frame and Tennessee went into the lockerroom with a 32-29 lead, the 13th time in 2009-10 that UT held an advantage at the break. After taking a 36-35 lead on a Stricklen jumper with 17:37 remaining in the contest, Tennessee would trail until Cain converted a layup with just 1:32 to play in the game. The Gators led by as much eight, which they had at 56-48 with 7:33 to play. Prior to Cain’s layup, freshman Kamiko Williams made a jumper in the lane with 2:17 on the clock to tie the game at 62 apiece. The Lady Vols were able to overcome the deficit by shooting nearly 61 percent in the second half. Junior Angie Bjorklund did not score in the first half and had a pair of three pointers to keep UT within striking distance. The Spokane Valley, Wash., native made arguably her biggest bucket to date of the season as she converted a reverse layup with just 2.3 seconds to play that put Tennessee up 66-64. The Gators would have one last attempt, and a half court inbounds pass led to a wide open three-point attempt by Lonnika Thompson that bounced off the rim as time expired. Joining Cain in double figures was Stricklen with 14 points and six boards. Sophomore Glory Johnson hauled in 10 rebounds and added eight points, the 13th time in her career she has grabbed double digit boards.
