The 8th-seeded South Carolina Gamecocks (14-14, 7-9 SEC) battled #9-seed Ole Miss (16-13, 7-9 SEC) on Thursday, March 4 for the right to face the Lady Vols at the Arena at Gwinnett Center at noon on Fri., Mar. 5. FSN has the broadcast. 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 1,032-195 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). 15 SEC TITLES – LOOKING FOR SEC TOURNEY CROWN #14 Tennessee’s win over Kentucky on Feb. 25 clinched the 2010 SEC Championship. It marked the 15th time that the Lady Vols have won the SEC regular season title and the first time since 2007. In the regular season SEC finale victory over Ole Miss, the Lady Vols extended their SEC record to 15 wins. A new program highwater mark due to the revised 16-game SEC schedule. UT would love to win the “daring double” by tacking on an SEC Tournament title to go along with the regular season crown. There have been five other times when UT won the regular season SEC title and went on to win the tournament championship: 1994, 1996, 1998, 1999 and 2000. OUR SCHEDULE THIS WEEK UT hopes to have an extended stay in the SEC Tournament in Duluth, Ga., before returning to the practice court next week in anticipation of the NCAA Tournament bracket announcement on March 15. ON THIS DAY IN LADY VOL BASKETBALL HISTORY UT is 14-4 in games played on Mar. 5. The Lady Vols are 2-1 at home, 0-1 on the road and 12-2 on neutral courts. The last time out on Mar. 5, UT defeated Alabama, 68-49, in the SEC Tournament in 2009. LOOKING BACK Last year at this time, the #19/24-ranked and SEC fifth-seeded Lady Vols were 21-9 (9-5 SEC) on the campaign after defeating 12th-seeded Alabama, 68-49, in the First Round of the 2009 SEC Tournament in North Little Rock, Ark. LAST TIME IN DULUTH The last time Tennessee played in the SEC Tournament in Duluth, Ga., was 2007. The #2/2-ranked and top-seeded Lady Vols defeated South Carolina in the Second Round, 81-63, but were upset the next day in the semifinals by #10/11-ranked LSU, 63-54. Following the game, the team held and “accountability session“ in the locker room and called each other out in the loss. It seems to have helped. The Lady Vols then marched through the NCAA Tournament to title number seven in Cleveland, Ohio. 2010 SEC WOMEN’S BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT (Mar. 4-7, The Arena at Gwinnett Center) FIRST ROUND -- Thursday, March 4 Noon Game 1 - Seed #8 South Carolina vs. Seed #9 Ole Miss (FSS) 2:30 p.m. Game 2 - Seed #7 Florida vs. Seed #10 Auburn (FSS) 6:30 p.m. Game 3 - Seed #5 Vanderbilt vs. Seed #12 Arkansas (FSS) 9:00 p.m. Game 4 - Seed #6 Georgia vs. Seed #11 Alabama (FSS) SECOND ROUND -- Friday, March 5 Noon Game 5 - Seed #1 TENNESSEE vs. Game 1 winner FSS 2:30 p.m. Game 6 - Seed #2 Kentucky vs. Game 2 winner FSS 6:30 p.m. Game 7 - Seed #4 LSU vs. Game 3 winner FSS 9:00 p.m. Game 8 - Seed #3 Mississippi State vs. Game 4 winner FSS SEMIFINALS -- Saturday, March 6 3:30 p.m. Game 9 - Game 5 vs. Game 7 winner ESPNU 6:00 p.m. Game 10 - Game 6 vs. Game 8 winner ESPNU FINALS -- Sunday, March 7 6:30 p.m. Game 11 - Game 9 vs. Game 10 winner ESPN2

With four players in double figures, the Gamecocks shook off their season-low scoring outputs of the previous two games to net 70+ points for just the third time in SEC play in 2010. South Carolina shot 53.3 percent in the second half for 44 points in the second stanza as the inside play of Charenee Stephens (14 pts) and Kelsey Bone (12 pts) helped to collect the win. A career game for freshman guard Ieasia Walker, including three clutch free throws in the final 25 seconds, helped drive the Gamecocks to just their second victory ever on the Commodores’ home court. USC FACING OLE MISS AND UT IN 2010 In order to face UT on Friday, South Carolina must get by Ole Miss in the 8 vs. 9 seed game. During the regular season, USC defeated Ole Miss in Columbia, 64-50. The Gamecocks faced the Lady Vols twice in 2010 losing 79-62 in Knoxville and 6055 in Columbia. 2010 UT MEETINGS WITH USC-IN COLUMBIA The Tennessee Lady Vols overcame early shooting woes and a hot South Carolina start to claim a 60-55 win on Jan. 31, 2010 in Columbia. The win improved Tennessee to 42-2 all-time against South Carolina, including winning the past 38 consecutive contests. The Gamecocks raced out to a 13-0 lead before Tennessee got its first basket at the 15:55 mark of the first half, an Alyssia Brewer jumper in the paint. Freshman Kamiko Williams played arguably her best game of the season and kept the Lady Vols in the game with 10 first half points on 4-of8 shooting. UT trailed for the entire first half and went into the break down 26-25. The Lady Vols continued to fight and keep the game close, and took their first lead of the game with 7:53 left in the contest on a Brewer jumper in the paint off an assist by Williams. Tennessee made key plays down the stretch to escape Columbia with a victory. Junior Angie Bjorklund hit a jumper with 27 seconds left from the left wing as the shot clock nearly ran out, giving UT a 58-55 lead. On the next possession, USC attempted to inbound the ball in front of its own bench when sophomore Alicia Manning tipped the pass and Williams snatched up the loose ball. The rookie coolly converted both free throws to give

Tennessee a five point advantage. The Lady Vol defense forced another turnover on a Gamecock inbound play underneath the South Carolina hoop, with Bjorklund coming up with the loose ball on the final play of the game. Williams tallied a team high and career best 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting and dished out four assists. Brewer tossed in 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting, including a 4-of-5 performance from the charity stripe, while redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain added 10. The Lady Vol bench outscored the South Carolina reserves 32-6. IN KNOXVILLE Tennessee opened the SEC portion of the 2009-10 schedule with a 79-62 victory over the South Carolina Gamecocks on Jan. 7, 2010 in Knoxville. The win improved UT to 26-5 in conference openers. The Gamecocks and Lady Vols went back and forth over the opening minutes and SC built a six point lead, 14-8, barely three minutes into the contest. The UT defense stepped up and held the USC offense without a field goal for over five minutes to turn a 19-14 deficit into a 31-20 lead with 9:28 to play in the half. 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. After the half, South Carolina pulled to 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 which turned into a 68-49 Lady Vol lead. The crowd of 1,462 was the second smallest at Thompson-Boling Arena due to snowy/icy conditions blanketing Knoxville. 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. LADY VOL NOTABLES FOR BOTH GAMES In two games this season against the Gamecocks, UT averaged 69.5 ppg while giving up 58.5 to USC. The Lady Vols shot .458 from the field (55-120)... .394 (13-33) from three-point land... was a regrettable .593 (16-27) from the charity stripe and barely controlled the boards, 37.5 to 34.0. Angie Bjorklund and Shekinna Stricklen were the only UT players averaging double-figures with 15.0 ppg each. Bjorklund averaged a ridiculous 38.5 mpg and was UT’s only player logging more than 30 minutes against Carolina. Redshirt soph Kelley Cain averaged 9.0 ppg, 4.5 rpg and 5.0 blocks per game while going toe-to-toe with rookie Kelsey Bone. UT took care of the ball with just 10.5 turnovers on 3.5 USC steals.

USC SERIES Tennessee leads the series with South Carolina, 42-2. The UT Media Relations Office recognizes all recorded games played with newspaper accounts and/or box scores. The series with USC indicates two wins and a loss pre-dating the Pat Summitt years yielding a 42-2 record. The Summitt era has only found UT on the losing end to the Gamecocks once -- Jan. 23, 1980 in Columbia, 56-52. It happened when the Carolina Pep Band positioned itself behind the UT bench and played its amplified drums, electric guitars, etc. for all 40 minutes of the game. UT huddles, held practically at the free throw line, did little good. Shortly thereafter, a ban on bands playing during the game and disallowing electronic amplification, was instituted by the AIAW. HEADING INTO THE GAME… UT and USC meet today for the 45th time in the series. The Lady Vols have recorded 38 consecutive victories over the Gamecocks dating back to the 1979-80 season when UT associate head coach Holly Warlick was the starting point guard. Warlick was quarterbacking the team the only time UT lost to USC in the Summitt Era. The day after the loss, the Lady Vol players wore their game uniforms in practice -- since (then) Coach Pat Head said her team “had only played for about 20 minutes in them.”

The Rebels (16-13, 6-8) lost for the eighth time in 10 games despite Thomas’ 34 point outburst, the second-highest total of her senior year. Ole Miss erased a double-digit deficit in the second half to tie the score at 50 on Elizabeth Robertson’s putback with 12:37 remaining, but Tennessee put away the game by scoring 17 of the next 21 points. Thomas, the SEC’s leading scorer, hit 11 of 27 field goals and four of her 10 3-point attempts. The Lady Vols scored the game’s first eight points in less than two minutes -- including two 3s by sophomore Shekinna Stricklen -- and took a 40-32 advantage into halftime. 2010 UT MEETINGS WITH OLE MISS-IN KNOXVILLE Tennessee finished the 2009-10 regular season by putting the final touches on the first undefeated home regular season since 2002-03. A 75-63 win over the Ole Miss Rebels extended UT’s home winning streak to 17 games and made it 19 games since Ole Miss last downed the Lady Vols. The Orange raced out to a 10-2 start over the first 3:01 of the contest and built a 31-18 lead with 6:04 to play in the first half. The Rebels battled back within five, 36-31, on the strength of a trio of three-pointers. Tennessee was able to extend the lead back to eight, 40-32, at the half. Tennessee pushed its lead back to 10 points, 44-34, barely a minute into the second half before UM’s Bianca Thomas scored the Rebels next 12 points to pull to within one and Elizabeth Robertson forced the first and only tie of the game at 50 points each with a three-pointer at the 12:32 mark. The Lady Vols outscored the Rebels 17-4 over the next 8:25 to claim a victory in their final regular season game. UM was led by Thomas, who torched the Lady Vols for an opponent high 34 points. UT was led by sophomores Shekinna Stricklen who scored a team-high 23 points and grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds for her fourth double-double of the season and Alicia Manning who scored a career-best 15 points and tied Stricklen for game-high rebound honors with 10. Redshirt sophomore center Kelley Cain finished with eight rebounds, seven points and three blocks. The trio of rejections pushed Cain

to 101 swats on the campaign and past former Player of the Year Candace Parker’s school record of 99 blocks in a season. UT won the battle of the boards, 49-40, for the 27th time and outscored Ole Miss 34-22 in the paint. IN OXFORD On Feb. 11, 2010 in Oxford, Miss., Tennessee came away with a 61-58 win over Ole Miss. UT junior Angie Bjorklund made four triples, the first of which put her over the 1,000 point mark for her career. The last of which came with just ticks left to play and gave UT the win. In between, Ole Miss hit 10 threes, five of which came from Elizabeth Robertson. The double digit three-pointers by the Rebels allowed them to hold the lead for most of the second half. UT trailed for just the fifth time this season at the halftime break, 30-25. UT briefly held the lead five minutes into the second stanza, but would not take the advantage for good until an Alyssia Brewer layup at the 3:17 mark. A Bjorklund three put UT up 58-54 at 2:41, but UM tied it at 58 on a Bianca Thomas layup with 16 seconds to go. After Summitt called a timeout to draw up the final play, Shekinna Stricklen was cut off and handed back to Bjorklund who hit a three pointer with one long second left for the win. It marked the second consecutive year that Bjorklund hit a three to beat Ole Miss. Last year in Knoxville, she hit one from the deep right corner with eight seconds left for a 60-59 win. Stricklen led the Lady Vols with 13 points, eight assists and four rebounds. Brewer earned player of the game honors with 12 points and eight boards off the bench. Bjorklund tallied nine second half points to finish with 12, and added six assists. Alicia Manning, making her third start of the season, finished with a season high 10 points on 5-of-8 shooting. Kelley Cain tallied only seven points but hauled in 16 rebounds. The Lady Vols outscored Ole Miss 32-10 in the paint and the UT bench provided a 15-2 edge over the Rebel reserves. LADY VOL NOTABLES FOR BOTH GAMES In two games this season against the Rebels, UT averaged 68.0 ppg while giving up 60.5 to Ole Miss. The Lady Vols shot .430 from the field (55128)... .370 (10-27) from three-point land... was a really regrettable .516 (16-31) from the charity stripe and controlled the boards in a big way, 48.0 to 32.0. Shekinna Stricklen (18.0 ppg), Alicia Manning (12.5 ppg) and Alyssia Brewer (10.5 ppg) were UT players averaging double-figures scoring. Four Lady Vols logged more than 30 minutes per game against the Rebels... Redshirt soph Kelley Cain averaged just 7.0 ppg but grabbed 12.0 rpg. The Rebs committed just 11 TO per game while UT turned the ball over 13.5 times off of an average of 6.0 Ole Miss steals.

The coaches accurately predicted Tennessee (#1), Mississippi State (#3), Vanderbilt (#5) and Florida (#7). SEC ANNOUNCES 2010 HONORS Four Tennessee Lady Vols were honored when the Southeastern Conference announced its 2010 women’s basketball awards as voted on by the league coaches. Junior Angie Bjorklund and redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain were named to the All-SEC First Team and sophomore Shekinna Stricklen was named All-SEC Second Team. Cain also was recognized with selection to the All-Defensive team, while sophomore Alyssia Brewer was selected as the league’s Sixth Woman of the Year and Bjorklund was tabbed as the SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year. “I’m extremely proud of our four student-athletes for being recognized by the league coaches for their success this season,” said Head Coach Pat Summitt. “I believe this is a direct result of the investment that our team made in the offseason both on and off the court, and shows the development our team has made in the past year. They have worked extremely hard at becoming better basketball players and a better basketball team and this is a great reward for that effort.” Bjorklund was a unanimous choice to the All-SEC First Team and was joined on the squad by Cain. Bjorklund leads the team with 12.9 ppg in league action and has converted 42-of-101 threepoint field goal attempts. She is fifth in the SEC making 41.6 percent of her three-pointers. After being named to the CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America First Team, Bjorklund earned the SEC’s Scholar-Athlete of the Year award, becoming the first Lady Vol to win claim the honor. Cain, who also earned All-Defensive Team accolades, set new school records for blocks in a game (12 vs. LSU on

Feb. 22) and for a season (101). The 6-6 post from Atlanta, Ga., leads the league in blocked shots (67 total, 4.5 bpg) and in field goal percentage (65.8). Stricklen earned selection to the All-SEC Second Team by posting 12.01 ppg, 5.5 rpg and 3.6 apg in league action. The Morrilton, Ark., native scored in double figures in 11 of Tennessee’s 16 SEC games in 2010. She also posted Tennessee’s second tripledouble ever with 17 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists against #14/15-ranked Oklahoma on Jan. 3. Brewer was named Sixth Woman of the Year after averaging 10.9 ppg and 6.5 rpg in conference games. The Sapulpa, Okla., native was seventh in the conference in field goal percentage, converting at a 49.3 percent clip, and was seventh in blocked shots at 1.3 bpg. Brewer scored in double digits in nine of UT’s final 11 SEC games.

ARK, 74-57 31 SEC APPEARANCES The Tennessee Lady Vols’ 2010 appearance in the SEC Tournament is the school’s 31st time to the mini-Final Four. This season marks the 29th time that UT has received a first round bye and the 15th trip as the No. 1 seed. The last time the Lady Vols were the No. 1 seed in 2007, they fell to LSU in the semifinals, 63-54, but rebounded to win the next six games the national title No. 7. UT’s SEC TOURNAMENT W-L Since the tourney began in 1980, the Lady Vols sport the best overall record in the conference tournament. UT has produced a 60-17 (.779) record which breaks down this way: Alabama (9-2), Auburn (9-4), Florida (7-0), Georgia (8-3), Kentucky (3-1), LSU (7-4), Ole Miss (4-1), Miss St. (4-0), South Carolina (2-0), and Vanderbilt (7-2). The Lady Vols have never faced Arkansas. (The SEC Office record indicates that UT is 59-17 in SEC play. However, in the old format, there was a consolation game. In 1983, UT defeated Auburn, 83-75, in the consolation finals.) BOWING OUT EARLY There have been four trips to the SEC Tournament since 1980 when the Lady Vols didn’t even get to unpack their bags, losing in second round action after receiving a bye. In 1981, Alabama sent UT packing after a 77-71 loss; in 1984, Alabama again provided the honors with a 85-66 drubbing; in 1986, Ole Miss dealt UT a 83-78 loss, and in 1993, Georgia provided UT with an early exit from Chattanooga, 73-72. UT AND AUBURN FIND A WAY TO MEET In UT’s 77 all-time SEC Tournament games, Tennessee and Auburn have battled in over onesixth of the contests or 13 games. The Lady Vols sport an 9-4 record in SEC Tournament action against the team from The Plains. TWO SEC TOURNAMENT MEETINGS WITH USC Whereas the Lady Vols have played Auburn more times than any other SEC school in the Tournament, Tennessee has faced South Carolina the least number of times (two games, 2-0) outside of never having faced Arkansas at all. Ironically, the first meeting with South Carolina was (previously) the ONLY time UT had to play on the Tournament’s first day – in 1997. That year, UT defeated USC, 75-48, beat LSU in overtime, 100-99, and lost to Auburn in the semifinals. The Lady Vols would not lose

again that season winning the 1997 NCAA title with a 29-10 overall record. SIXTY IS SLICK The Tennessee Lady Vols recorded their 60th win all-time in the SEC Tournament with the win over #21/18 Florida, 71-67, on Mar. 6, 2009. In 2005, UT grabbed win number 50 with the victory over #18/17 Vanderbilt, 76-73, on Mar. 5, 2005. Vanderbilt is a distant second in all-time SEC Tournament wins with 40 and Georgia stands third with 39 wins all-time. 18 TIMES IN THE FINALS The Championship game against LSU in the 2008 SEC Tournament marked the Lady Vols 18th incredible trip to the final round of the nation’s toughest conference tournament. UT is 13-5 in all-time SEC Championship game meetings. In the 1990s alone, the Lady Vols were in the title game eight times (1990, 1991, 1992, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1998, 1999) against five different SEC teams. In that decade, UT won titles in five of the years – 1999 vs. Georgia, 85-69, 1998 vs. Alabama, 67-63, 1996 vs. Alabama, 64-60 (without Chamique Holdsclaw due to a knee injury suffered in the opening minutes of play), 1994 vs. Vanderbilt, 82-57 and 1992 vs. Georgia, 73-66. The Lady Vols have won titles in 2008, 2006, 2005, 2000, 1999, 1998, 1996, 1994, 1992, 1989, 1988, 1985, and 1980. The Lady Vols amassed a 16-3 record in SEC games played in Chattanooga and brought home four titles from that venue (1994, 1996, 1999 and 2000). DARING DOUBLES At the 2010 SEC Tournament, the Lady Vols will be attempting to accomplish something they haven’t done in 10 years, win the “daring double” of the SEC regular season and SEC Tournament titles. The last time UT accomplished the double was in the 1999-2000 season when UT won its sixth all-time D-D. Other years when the Lady Vols won dual crowns were 1980, 1985, 1994, 1998, 1999 and 2000. Only three other SEC schools have ever won both titles: Georgia (1983, 1984 and 1986), Auburn (1981 and 1987) and Kentucky (1982). THE CENTURY MARK The Lady Vols have reached the century scoring mark four times in the SEC Tournament. In 1998, the Lady Vols derailed Vandy, 106-45. In the previous year, the Lady Vols scored 100 on LSU in overtime. Nine years earlier, in 1988, Tennessee nailed Kentucky for 100 points. And in the very first SEC Tournament game in 1980, Tennessee crushed Florida, 118-44. That Florida team was then coached by former Kentucky head coach and UT associate head coach Mickie DeMoss. OUR SEC OVERTIME GAMES In 30 years and 77 games in the SEC Tournament, the Tennessee Lady Vols have been involved in just two overtime contests. In 2004 in Nashville, Tennessee and Georgia met in the semifinals on Mar.6. #20/16-ranked Georgia forced the overtime with the score knotted at 57-all. #1-ranked UT took a quick four-point lead but Georgia responded with a 7-0 run to take the 68-66 win and earned a trip to the title game. In Tennessee’s only other SEC overtime, in 1997, Tennessee snuck by LSU with a narrow 100-99 victory in overtime in second round play. In the next game, a weary UT squad lost a heartbreaker to Auburn, 61-59, in semifinal action. The loss to Auburn was UT’s 10th on the season. It would be the last loss for the 1996-97 “Cinderella Season” team as they ran the table in the NCAA Tournament to claim NCAA title number five.

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


SEC Game Notes • #1 Tennessee vs. #8 South Carolina or #9 Ole Miss • Mar. 5, 2010 TENNESSEE IN THE 16 GAME SEC FORMAT Tennessee won the first SEC title under the new 16-game format for 2010. 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 faced 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 17812 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 36 in a row, since 3-3-1984 Arkansas 16 in row, since 12-29-1996 Auburn 1 in a row, since 3-7-09 Florida 3 in a row, since 2-8-09 Georgia no streak, since 1-21-10 (1 loss) Kentucky 1 in a row, 2-19-09 LSU 2 in a row, since 2-26-09 Mississippi 18 in a row, since 2-4-1996 Mississippi State 31 in a row, never lost to MSU South Carolina 38 in a row, since 1-23-1980 Vanderbilt 3 in a row, since 1-11-09

later it was a road loss at LSU, 63-61. This season, Georgia tagged the Lady Vols with a regular season SEC loss for the first time since the Bulldogs prevailed 78-51 on Jan. 17, 2000. BJORKLUND NAMED SEC PLAYER OF THE WEEK Angie Bjorklund was named SEC Player of the Week (Feb. 8-14) after leading UT to wins at No. 22-ranked Vanderbilt, 69-60, at Ole Miss, 61-58, and over Florida, 83-44. It is the first time the Spokane Valley, Wash., native earned the honor after being named SEC Rookie of the Week numerous times as a frosh. For the week, Bjorklund averaged team-bests of 15.3 ppg while shooting 41.5 percent from the field and making 12-of27 three pointers (44.4 percent). STRICK HONORED AS SEC POW THREE TIMES Lady Vol sophomore Shekinna Stricklen was named Southeastern Conference Player of the Week and Lady Vol Athlete of the Week for the third time this season (Feb. 22-28) after leading the No. 4/4-ranked Lady Vols to a 3-0 week and clinching the 15th SEC regular season title in school history. For the week, Stricklen shot 63 percent from the field, and averaged a teambest 15.0 ppg, to go with 6.7 rpg and 3.3 apg with wins over LSU, Kentucky and Ole Miss. She earned her second SEC honor (Nov. 30-Dec. 6). Against George Washington, Stricklen notched her fourth career double double with 17 points and 10 rebounds. She was 8-of-13 from the field to help Tennessee to a 93-53 win. Against #17/17 Texas on Dec. 6, Stricklen tallied her 27th career double figure scoring game with 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting. She also added six rebounds and five assists against the Longhorns. She was also named SEC 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 74-65 win over the No. 7/4-ranked Baylor Lady Bears on Nov. 15. She scored 25 points, grabbed a career-best 14 rebounds, dished out five assists and tallied three steals.

SEC COACHES TAB LADY VOLS The SEC unveiled its sixth annual women’s basketball preseason All-SEC first and second teams, Thurs., Oct. 30.In the closet vote yet, Tennessee was predicted to win the SEC 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. LSU senior guard Allison Hightower was named SEC 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 Alli Smalley (AU), Porsha Phillips (UG), Victoria Dunlap (UK), Bianca Thomas (UM), Armelie Lumanu and Chanel Mokango (MSU), Glory Johnson (UT) and Merideth Marsh and Hannah Tuomi (VU).

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 UT PICKED NUMBER TWO BY MEDIA defeated the Lady Vols. Add another two weeks and Tennessee was predicted to finish second in the another SEC road loss for UT, this time a 66-56 decision a the hands of the Kentuckyy Wildcats and a week SEC this season following a vote by a select media panel while LSU was picked to win.

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


SEC Game Notes • #1 Tennessee vs. #8 South Carolina or #9 Ole Miss • Mar. 5, 2010 WORTH NOTING ABOUT TODAY’S POSSIBLE OPPONENTS •Tennessee is 2-0 against South Carolina in the SEC Tournament. UT won 81-63 in the Second Round of 2007 SEC tourney in Duluth, GA. (3-2-07) • South Carolina Coach Dawn Staley is not a stranger to the Lady Vols. At the 1991 NCAA Final Four in New Orleans. La., the Tennessee Lady Vols and the Virginia Cavaliers squared off in the NCAA Championship game on March 31, at the Lakefront Arena. The Virginia point guard at the time was Dawn Staley, currently South Carolina’s head coach, who helped her team stage a furious comeback to tie the game at 60-all in regulation. Staley scored 28 points before fouling out and was named the MVP – except the ballots were counted in the final three minutes during regulation. UT guard Dena Head also scored 28 points and led the Lady Vols in the overtime stanza to a 70-67 victory over UVA. It was the first OT championship game ever in NCAA women’s hoops. •Tennessee Coach Pat Summitt will possibly be facing two more former players turned coaches this afternoon on the South Carolina sideline. Lady Vol Olympians Nikki McCray (1991-95) and Carla McGhee (1986-90) are assistant coaches on Gamecock Coach Dawn Staley’s staff. McGhee was a teammate of Tennessee assistant coach Daedra Charles-Furlow on the 1989 Lady Vol NCAA title team. Charles-Furlow and Staley faced each other in the 1991 NCAA title game in New Orleans as both fouled out as the game went into overtime. In her final collegiate game, Charles tossed in 19 points and grabbed 12 boards while Staley was the MVP with 28 points and 11 rebounds. This season, Summitt has faced a number of former Lady Vol players and staffers in the coaching ranks (including McCray and McGhee in the first meeting between USC and UT on Jan. 7, 2010): Nikki Caldwell and Tasha Butts (UCLA), Tanya Haave and Abby Conklin (San Francisco), Angel Elderkin (Virginia), Mickie DeMoss (Texas), and will meet Matthew Mitchell, Kyra Elzy and Shalon Pillow (Kentucky). •Hats off to the Lady Vol bench in the comefrom-behind win over South Carolina on Jan. 31. UT’s bench outscored USC’s by a 32-6 margin for the difference in the game. Kamiko Williams tossed in 17 points, Alyssia Brewer and Alicia Manning added 13 and 2 points, respectively. Brewer’s bucket with 7:52 to go in the game earned UT’s first lead of the game at 48-47. • UT is 4-1 all-time in the SEC Tournament against Ole Miss. The Lady Vols are 1-1 in Second Round games; 2-0 in Semifinal games and 1-0 in SEC title games. UT’s last second round meeting with the Rebels was in 1996 when the Big Orange WEEK

won 73-51 on Mar. 2 in Chattanooga. • Tennessee has a 19 game winning streak currently against the Lady Rebels. The last time Ole Miss beat UT was on Feb. 4, 1996, when the 20thranked Lady Rebels downed the third-ranked Lady Vols, 78-72 in Oxford. • Tennessee and Ole Miss met on Feb. 11 and Feb. 28. UT won both games. • Ole Miss holds one advantage over Tennessee that no other SEC team can claim. Between 1985-87, the Rebels defeated the Lady Vols four straight times, and had victories in five of six tries versus UT during that span. Since then, UT has fallen at the hands of Mississippi only twice, the last time coming on Feb. 4, 1996 in Oxford. • Tennessee’s victory over Ole Miss provided the Lady Vols with their 16th season of at least 10 wins in SEC play. All-time, the Lady Vols have registered double-digit victories in conference play an incredible 16 times since the 1991-92 season when SEC play expanded. OF NOTE ON THE SEASON •The win over Kentucky gave the Lady Vols the 15th SEC regular season title in Tennessee history. The last time UT won an SEC regular season crown was in 2007 with a perfect 14-0 mark. • The Lady Vols have put yet another 20-win season in the books. With a victory over Arkansas on Feb. 4, it marked the 34th consecutive time a Lady Vol team reached at least 20 wins in a season under Coach Pat Summitt. • Tennessee has eclipsed 100,000 fans at home (198,289) for an amazing 16th consecutive year and currently averages 13,219 fans per game in Knoxville. On the road, UT has averaging 6,311 folks per game in hostile gyms. In neutral games, Tennessee has averaged 5,888 in two games • UT has gone from the outhouse to the penthouse in field goal percentage in 2010. Last season, the Lady Vols averaged a program worst .413 from the field. This season, Tennessee has flipped the field and is averaging .463 shooting accuracy this season. • This year, the Lady Vols redeemed 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. This year, UT had a 7-1 SEC road record spoiled by the loss at (then) #8 Georgia, 53-50. UT’S OFFENSIVE OPPORTUNITIES

THE LINE-UP CAROUSEL Against Ole Miss on Feb. 28, Tennessee coach Pat Summitt started her 13th different line-up of the season. Sophomore Alyssia Brewer started ahead of classmate Glory Johnson. Summitt had been using the combination of Alicia Manning, Shekinna Stricklen, Angie Bjorklund, Glory Johnson and Kelley Cain in games 2, 24, 25, 27 and 28 of late. Cain did not start in game 26 at Alabama since she did not make the trip in order to stay at home to attend classes. Sophomore Shekinna Stricklen is the only common denominator starter from all 29 games this season. Last year, in the disappointing 22-11 campaign, Summitt tried 12 different line-up combinations with no “common denominator” players to start in all 33 games. In the two previous NCAA title years, UT utilized five different lineups in 2008 and only four line-ups in 2007. Summitt changed the starters seven times in 2006 and a whopping 10 times in 2005. In that 200405 fruit-basket turnover line-up, there was no common denominator player for the first time in five years, either. EQUAL OPPORTUNITY STARTERS For the first time in Pat Summitt’s 36-year coaching tenure at Tennessee, every single player on the 2009-10 active roster has been given the opportunity to earn a starting assignment this season. 2009-10 LINE-UP COMBINATIONS During the 2009-10 season, Tennessee has used 13 different starting lineups heading into the SEC Tournament Games

LADY VOLS ON TV A record 27 of 29 Lady Vol regular season games were on television this season airing on ESPN2 (5 games), ESPNU (5), FSN/FSS and SportSouth (9), CSS (4), SEC Network (3) and MyNetworkTV (1). Upcoming TV games include: the SEC Tournament on FSS, ESPNU and ESPN2. The Lady Vols are 25-2 on TV this season. In the 2007-08 season, UT had a school record 36 total TV appearances. SEC CHAMPIONSHIPS Coach Pat Summitt and her Tennessee Lady Vols have now won almost one-half of all SEC regular season titles ever contested in the league -- 15 out of 30. Tennessee has won league titles in 1980, 1985, 1990, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2007,2010. Additionally, UT has captured 13 SEC Tournament titles. 15 SEC VICTORIES The win over Ole Miss on Feb. 28 was Tennessee’s 15th SEC victory of the year and eclipses 1998, 2001, 2003, 2004 and 2007 when the Lady Vol had 14 SEC win seasons. WOULD LOVE TO GET THE DARING DOUBLE At the SEC Tournament, the Lady Vols will be attempting to accomplish something they haven’t done in 10 years, win the “daring double” of the SEC regular season and SEC Tournament titles. The last time was in the 1999-2000 season when UT won its sixth all-time D-D. Other years when the Lady Vols won dual crowns were 1980, 1985, 1994, 1998, 1999 and 2000. Only three other SEC schools have ever won both titles: Georgia (1983, 1984 and 1986), Auburn (1981 and 1987) and Kentucky (1982). ACADEMIC ALL-AMERICA University of Tennessee Lady Vol junior Angie Bjorklund has been named to the CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America Women’s Basketball First Team. The Spokane Valley, Wash., native boasts a 3.8 GPA in psychology and leads the Lady Vols in scoring. Bjorklund joins an elite group of former Lady Vols who have earned their way onto the prestigious five-woman CoSIDA Academic All-America First Team including Candace Parker (2008), Shanna Zolman (2006), Kara Lawson (2003), Tanya Haave (1984) and Jill Rankin (1980).

AMAZING SUMMITT NUMBERS •Summitt has faced 160 opponents in 1,227 total games and teams from 35 conferences •47% of her 1,227 total games have been played versus ranked teams (580 total games against ranked opponents) with 422 victories versus ranked opponents •156 all-time Lady Vols have contributed to 1,032 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.

Parker and Rankin additionally earned distinction as the CoSIDA Academic All-America of the Year for women’s basketball. Several other Lady Vols have been named as second and third team Academic All-America players: Nicky Anosike (2008- second team), Peggy Evans (1992-third team), Tanya Haave (1983-third team), Lea Henry (1983-third team), and Candace Parker (2007-second team). “It is an incredible honor to be selected Academic All-America,” said Bjorklund. “Academics are incredibly important to me and Coach Summitt always stresses their importance. We are all student-athletes, with the student portion of our responsibilities coming first. I am extremely happy to be recognized for the hard work that I put into both my academics and my work on the court.” The sharp-shooting Bjorklund has climbed up the UT record books in a pair of three-point shooting categories. This season, she has moved up to third place with 213 career three-pointers and is currently second in the single-season record books with 83 triples made. GET OUT THE BROOM This season, the Lady Vols have completed a winning sweep of Vanderbilt, South Carolina, Florida, LSU and Ole MIss in SEC play. ANOTHER SWAT SCHOOL RECORD Tennessee’s single game team record for blocked shots had remained unchanged at 13 since Dec. 19, 1987 when UT set the mark against Eastern Kentucky. Until this week, that is... In back-to-back games versus LSU (Feb. 22, 2010) and Kentucky (Feb. 25, 2010), the Lady Vols rewrote the mark twice. UT knocked away 14 shots against LSU and then bettered the mark in the very next game rejecting 15 Wildcat shots. 402 GAMES WITH A TRIPLE Against Ole Miss on Feb. 28, the Lady Vols made a three-pointer for the 402nd consecutive game; the last time UT did not make at least one three was Jan. 21, 1999, at Florida. UT won that game 77-64. EVERY MOMENT IS A TEACHING MOMENT UT coach Pat Summitt is fond of using that little saying. Some of those teaching moments have begun to pay off. Junior Angie Bjorklund is a threeyear starter and is enjoying her best season to date. She has already bettered the scoring of her first two seasons, 318 and 344. She has 414 points in 29 games. Sophomore Alyssia Brewer has been called the “Most Improved Player” on the team by Summitt. Brewer shot just 41% (73-178) from the field last season and is shooting 54% (116-217) this year. She has improved upon 194 points in 33 games as a rookie to 274 in five fewer games as a sophomore. Up and down the line, Kelley Cain, Alicia Manning,

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


SEC Game Notes • #1 Tennessee vs. #8 South Carolina or #9 Ole Miss • Mar. 5, 2010 Glory Johnson have all shown a dramatic improvement in their stats. ANGIE B JOINED THE 1,000 POINT CLUB Lady Vol junior Angie Bjorklund joined the 1,000 career point club with her first basket at Ole Miss on Feb. 11. She scored 318 points as a rookie and 344 as a sophomore. This season, she has 407 to date for a career total of 1,069. She became the 34th all-time player to reach the 1,000 point club. LYSSI ON A ROLL Sophomore post Alyssia Brewer has stepped up since the loss at Georgia producing nine of 11 double-figure scoring game (including six consecutive) and is averaging 13.1 ppg and 7.0 ppg during this stretch. Her streak was snapped against Florida in Knoxville with just four points but her all around play was really solid gathering five rebounds, dishing two assists, blocking four shots and grabbing a steal in 24 minutes. She bounced back at Alabama with 20 points, 10 rebounds and three blocked shots and tossed in 18 points and grabbed six boards off the bench against LSU. LEADING AT THE BREAK The Lady Vols have led at halftime in 22 of 29 games this season. The Lady Vols trailed 24-26 after the opening 20 minutes against Baylor but prevailed 74-65. Nikki Caldwell’s UCLA Bruins snagged a 2725 halftime lead but were outscored by the Lady Vols 36-20 in the second stanza. In the second meeting with South Carolina, the Gamecocks led 26-35 at the break but were outscored 35-29 in the second half in the come-from-behind win. Tennessee was tied at 30 with Georgia on Jan. 24 in the 53-50 loss. Tennessee was tied at 28 with Vanderbilt on Feb. 8 in the 69-60 win in Nashville. At Ole Miss, the Lady Rebs raced out to a 30-25 halftime advantage. The only game Tennessee has lost while trailing at the half was to Stanford. The Cardinal grabbed a 30-18 halftime lead and took a 67-52 win over the Lady Vols. On average, UT holds a 35.6 to 26.8 halftime lead. The Lady Vols have outscored the opposition 38.6 to 29.8 in the second stanza. TAKE PRIDE IN BOARD PLAY Through 29 games, Tennessee has been outrebounded only twice -- by Stanford, 44-34 and at Alabama by a whopping 45-33 margin. Overall, the Lady Vols are doing a better job on the boards this season holding an +8.4 rebounding advantage, 42.9 to 34.56. REJECTIONS IN THE RECORD BOOK Sophomore post Kelley Cain Cain set a new UT single season blocked shot record against Ole Miss on Feb. 28. She now has 101 for the year; she topped the mark of 99 set by former Lady Vol Olympian and All-American Candace Parker in the 2006-07 season. In less than two seasons, she is in the UT record books with 143 career blocks; Nicky Anosike is fifth with 161. Before smashing the UT record with 12 rejections vs. LSU on Feb. 22, Cain tied the UT single -game blocked shot mark with eight swats against Arkansas on Feb. 4. Ashley Robinson recorded eight blocked shots against Rutgers on Dec. 11, 2003. Cain had 49 blocks in 27 games last season and has recorded 101 in 27 games this season. Currently, she ranks in 2nd place with 150 all-time and passed Lady Vol great Chamique Holdsclaw (111 blocks). All-everything Candace Parker is the Lady Vol career leader in blocks with 275 in three seasons. IF UT DOESN’T IMPROVE... The Lady Vols have been woeful at the charity stripe in 16 SEC games hitting just 64.9 percent.

Glory Johnson, Kelley Cain and Alyssia Brewer have made more than 40 trips to the line in these games and are shooting 56.8, 52.7 and 65.3 percent, respectively. In the couple of weeks, Coach Pat Summitt has instituted a no-talking policy while practicing free throws and it paid off against Kentucky as UT hit 25 of 27 for 92.6 percent. Tennessee is also typically known for generating steals... the theft count is at just 6.0 per SEC game. 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 213 made treys for her career. Kara Lawson in second with 256 and Shanna Zolman leads the pack with 266 career threes. INSIDE - OUT Tennessee has staked a claim in the paint this season behind 6’6” redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain. The Lady Vols failed to dominate the paint in three games, Stanford, South Carolina (in Knoxville) and at Alabama (without Cain). In the contest against the Cardinal, SU scored 26 paint points to the Lady Vols’ 20. Versus South Carolina in the SEC opener, the Gamecocks outscored UT, 28-26. Alabama crammed 40 points down UT’s throat (to just 36 for the Lady Vols). UT scored a season high 54 points in the paint versus George Washington and held San Francisco to just two points in the paint. This season, UT averages 34.8 ppg in the paint out of a total of 74.4 ppg overall.

The Enemy Camp

14-15

GIVE THE ZONE CREDIT Tennessee, not known for playing much (if barely any) zone defense, has become a pretty good zone defender this season. UT’s length, starting with the 82” wingspan of Kelley Cain, and talking their action has made the Lady Vol zone pretty active. At LSU, the Lady Tigers managed to hit just 26% (14-53) from the field. Despite Georgia winning, the Lady Bulldogs connected on just 16-44 from the field for 36%.

George Washington 6-21

RANKED TIDBITS Tennessee is 9-2 against ranked opponents this season in 29 total games played. The Lady Vols opened the season with a 74-65 win over #7/4-ranked Baylor... took a 77-63 win on the road at #12/17-ranked Virginia, knocked off #17-ranked Texas, 78-58, lost to #2-ranked Stanford, 67-52, defeated #14/15-ranked Oklahoma, 96-75, turned back #nr/22-ranked Vanderbilt, lost at #8 Georgia on Jan. 21 in Athens... rebounded with a 55-43 victory at #18/19 LSU on Jan. 24. UT also beat #22 Vanderbilt in the second meeting of the season, 6960, as well as #20-ranked LSU in the second meeting, 70-61. UT dropped #16/14-ranked Kentucky in Knoxville on Feb. 25, 81-65. SHE SAYS DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS The Lady Vols were challenged to turn up the defensive intensity against a traditionally good shooting Vanderbilt team in Knoxville. Going into the Vandy game on Jan. 17, only one opponent had managed to shoot better than 40 percent from the field against UT -- Oklahoma (.446). Vanderbilt joined the list by ringing the Lady Vols up for a .429 shooting day including .435 from three-point land. UT ranks first in the SEC and fourth in the nation in field goal defense allowing the opposition just 34.6 percent accuracy from the field.

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


SEC Game Notes • #1 Tennessee vs. #8 South Carolina or #9 Ole Miss • Mar. 5, 2010 lick has been on the Lady Vol sidelines for 25 years as a Pat Summitt staffer and ranks behind Annette Rocheleau of Montana (29 years) and Carol Peschel of UNC Greensboro with 26 seasons. Warlick is joined by Connecticut’s Chris Dailey and Stanford’s Amy Tucker in the silver anniversary club. The survey found that a dozen staffers had been at their institution as an assistant for over 20 years. Warlick also spent four seasons as a Lady Vol AllAmerican and Olympian from 1976-80. 100,000 FANS... AGAIN The Lady Vols have eclipsed 100,000 fans at home games for the last 16 consecutive years. A total of 198,289 folks have attended 14 games at home this season for an average of 13,219. A season high 16,645 showed up for the Vanderbilt game on Jan. 17. 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. 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.” LADY VOL STREAKS The Lady Vols last loss at home was against Duke, 62-54, on Feb. 16, 2009, since then UT has won 17 home games. The last time UT lost on the road was on Jan. 21, 2010 at Georgia, since then, UT has won five 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. 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 all-time 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 322-20 (.942) record since the Orange and White moved into the Thompson-Boling Arena to start the 198788 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 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, 1996-97, 1999-00, 2001-02, 2003-04, 200506 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). 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 472-45 overall record. Home losses (in the Summitt era) include: six in Alumni Gym from 1974-76; 19 in Stokely Athletics Center from 197687; and 20 in Thompson-Boling Arena. 100 POINT GAMES Since 1974, the Lady Vols have gone over the century mark 70 times. The 1987-88 team hit triple digits in seven games to lead the NCAA. IN OVERTIME Tennessee is 27-17 all-time in overtime games. The most OT games in a year was tied in 2003-04 with four as the Lady Vols went 3-1 in overtime losing to Georgia, 68-66, and defeating Auburn, 68-61, DePaul, 96-89, and Stanford, 70-66. It tied the mark set in 1996-97, when the Lady Vols were 3-1 in overtime contests losing to Georgia, 9493, and defeating Texas, 68-65, Vanderbilt, 92-79 and LSU, 100-99. UT’s 22 points in the OT against Florida (2-3-05), was the most ever scored by the Lady Vols in a single overtime. UT’s most recent OT affair was a 79-69 win over Stanford on Dec. 21, 2008, at home. 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 421-157 (.725) versus ranked teams. The 2008-09 Lady Vols were a dismal 4-8 versus ranked teams. SENIORLESS NIGHT For the first-time ever, Tennessee has a seniorless roster. In pregame ceremonies for “Senior Night 2010”, UT’s senior managers (Justine Brown and Whitney Welch) and senior trainers (Megan Gibson and Ashlee Harb) were recognized. Per Tennessee tradition, the six Ole Miss seniors were presented flowers by Coach Pat Summitt and recognized by Lady Vol fans. A LITTLE KNOWN STORY Tennessee’s Pat Head Summitt could very well have coached her 1,000th win at the University of Ken-

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


SEC Game Notes • #1 Tennessee vs. #8 South Carolina or #9 Ole Miss • Mar. 5, 2010 tucky in February 2009. Then-UK basketball coach and chief administrator Sue Feamster was looking to hand over the reins to the women’s team in 1975. Feamster contacted Head about the job. UK planned to offer Head a little more money than she was making in Knoxville. The sticking point? Head asked for moving expenses. UK said “no.” The rest, they say, is history. Feamster was in attendance on Feb. 25, 2010, when UT defeated UK for the 2010 SEC title. FIRST RANKED MEETING SINCE 1993 Tennessee and Kentucky entered their game on Feb. 25, 2010 both ranked for the first time since their 1993 meeting. UT was ranked #1 when the Lady Vols defeated #25/23 Kentucky in Knoxville on Feb. 6 by an 85-61 score. TENNESSEE MADE UK “BLUE” Playing the elusive “40-minute game” took a turn in the right direction for the Lady Vols against Kentucky. In snagging the program’s 15th all-time SEC title against the Cats on Feb. 25, UT was assisted by six players in extra digits. Five players scored in double-figures led by Kelley Cain with 14 points followed by Glory Johnson (13), Angie Bjorklund and Shekinna Stricklen (12) and Alyssia Brewer with 10 points. Guard Alicia Manning made her contribution with a career high 11 rebounds. Tennessee’s bench, which was woeful in the loss in Lexington last season, outscored the UK reserves 26-8. IN THE PINK The Lady Vols played in three “Pink Zone” games -- two on the road and the final event at home. UT’s win at Ole Miss (61-58) on Feb. 11 kicked off the pink games and was followed by a pink squeaker at Alabama, 74-67 on Feb. 18 and win over LSU, 70-61 in Knoxville on Feb. 22. UT CASUAL IN WIN OVER BAMA Granted, the Lady Vols were without the services of 6’6” Kelley Cain at Alabama and substitute starter Lyssi Brewer did crank out a 20 point, 10 rebound and three block performance but the rest of the Tennessee team failed to live up to “Lady Vol basketball.” Tennessee was outrebound for only the second time this season, 45-33. The only other team to outrebound UT was #2-ranked Stanford. In command of the paint this season, UT was also outscored in that area, 40-36. The Alabama reserves outscored the UT bench 32-15. Pretty disheartening was the fact that UT’s SEC-best defense allowed the Tide to shoot an opponent best .459 from the field. Alabama is just the third team to shoot better than 40 percent against UT this season. STUDENT FIRST, ATHLETE SECOND Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain missed the Alabama game to stay in Knoxville to attend class on Thurs., Feb. 18. The marketing/logistics major had missed several Thursday classes due to SEC travel and asked Coach Pat Summitt if she could stay home so that she could attend classes. Cain has been beastly in the paint of late. In the last week (at Vandy, at Ole Miss, vs. Florida), the 6’6” post staked her claim in the painted real estate. Cain tied her career high of 19 points twice while averaging 15.0 ppg... grabbed 10.3 rpg including 16 at Ole Miss... rejecting 4.7 shots per game including seven against the Gators. Moreover, she is logged a ridiculous 35.3 minutes per contest and connected on 68% of her shots. The chink to the armor was hitting just 54% from the line (7-13). CURED THE GATOR TURNOVER BITE The Lady Vols did an about-face in the second meeting with Florida on Feb. 14 in the turnover department. UT committed just 10 miscues -- third fewest on the season and forced the Gators into 20 turnovers and

turned them into 31 Tennessee points. Heading into the first Florida game on Jan. 14, 2010, it was pointed out that the Lady Vols needed to avoid turnovers mentioning that last year the turnover bug bit Tennessee both in Gainesville (during the regular season) and in North Little Rock (in the SEC Tournament). Florida scored 45 points off of 42 UT miscues last year. It was also pointed out that there was good news heading into the game at Gainesville... the Lady Vol starters had just three turnovers (all in the first half) in the previous game against Mississippi State on Jan. 10. UT then proceeded to commit a season high 25 turnovers on Jan. 14 in Gainesville and almost lost the game. TABER BACK ON THE FLOOR Lady Vol rookie forward Taber Spani was back on the floor at Vanderbilt after sitting out for a week to calm down a painful bout of “turf toe.” In the win over Florida in Knoxville, she looked good nailing a deep trey scoring five points and grabbing three rebounds. She was back at practice on Feb. 6 after missing the South Carolina and Arkansas games hoping to give her foot some rest. She is listed as day-to-day heading into the game at Ole Miss. Spani has played in 23 games and started 16 games, but only played a total of 20 minutes in the three games prior to South Carolina on the road and scored two points. She has been bothered off-andon since this summer’s USA Basketball stint. Before it started acting up, she was tossing in over eight points a game and grabbing almost five rebounds. KAMIKO BECAME 59TH ROOKIE TO START Freshman Kamiko Williams, a 5-11 point guard from Clarksville, Tenn. (Northeast HS), became the 59th rookie all-time to earn a starting assignment at Tennessee when she was in the starting line-up against Arkansas. Williams earned the nod from Coach Pat Summitt after coming in off the bench to punch in a career high 17 points in UT’s come-from-behind win at South Carolina on Jan. 31. 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. Earlier this season, Williams’ fellow rookie Taber Spani, became the 13th frosh to start her very first game at UT and the 58th rookie overall. WELCOME BACK -- FOR ONE GAME Tennessee’s backcourt duo of Angie Bjorklund and Shekinna Stricklen started the 2010 portion of the schedule in bang-bang fashion against #14/15 Oklahoma and South Carolina. Bjorklund dropped in 25 and 24 respectively, while Stricklen added a triple-double against the Sooners (17 points, 13 rebounds, 12 assists) and tossed in 21 points and dished six helpers against the Gamecocks. Since the Carolina game, and SEC play, the pair struggled for five games (at Mississippi St., at Florida, vs. #22 Vanderbilt, at #8 Georgia, at #18/19 LSU) before having a breakout game against Auburn on Jan. 28. Bjorklund scored 20 points on six treys and Stricklen added 17 solid points. The rally was short-lived. In the very next game at South Carolina, Stricklen struggled in the first half and played just six minutes before rebounding in the second half to score nine points in 20 minutes. Bjorklund managed seven points and a team high four steals while playing all 40 minutes.

LYSSI WAS MONEY AT LSU Sophomore post Alyssia (Lyssi) Brewer was the AutoZone Lady Vol Player of the Game for her performance against LSU on Jan. 24. The Sapulpa, Oklahoma native led Tennessee in scoring with 14 points and chipped in seven rebounds in her fourth career start.

SEC Game Notes • #1 Tennessee vs. #8 South Carolina or #9 Ole Miss • Mar. 5, 2010 2009-10 LADY VOL GAME NOTES ALMANAC BJORKLUND NAMED TO ACADEMIC TEAM Lady Vol junior Angie Bjorklund was named to the CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic AllDistrict IV First Team on Feb. 4. The Spokane Valley, Wash., native boasts a 3.8 GPA in psychology and leads the Lady Vols with a 14.8 ppg average and has started 21 of 22 games for the fifth-ranked Lady Vols. She is the only SEC player to move on to the national ballot. The sharp-shooting Bjorklund has climbed up the UT record books in a pair of three-point shooting categories. This season, she has moved up to third place with 199 career three-pointers and is currently fifth in the single-season record books with 69 triples made. This marks the second consecutive season Bjorklund has been honored by CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine. Last season as a sophomore, she was named to the All-District IV Second Team. By earning Academic All-District First Team honors, Bjorklund is now eligible for Academic All-America, which will be announced on Tuesday, Feb. 23. ANOTHER 20 WIN SEASON The Tennessee Lady Vols claimed yet another 20-win season. With a victory over Arkansas, it marked the 34th consecutive time a Lady Vol team reached at least 20 wins in a season under Coach Pat Summitt. By picking up win #20 against Arkansas on Feb. 4, it tied the seventh fastest Summitt team to attain at least 20 wins. SUMMITT’S NON-20-WIN SEASONS? Tennessee’s Pat Summitt has only had two teams fail to reach 20-win seasons during her 36-year tenure. In her first and second seasons (1974-75 and 1975-76) at UT, the Lady Vols were 16-8 and 16-11, respectively. BRINK OF A TRIPLE-DOUBLE Redshirt sophomore post Kelley Cain was two blocked shots away from a triple-double against Arkansas on Feb. 4. The 6’6” paint prowler had 14 points, career highs of 17 rebounds and a school record-tying eight blocked shots in 33 minutes vs. Arkansas. “THE PAT SUMMITT STORY” BOX SET DVD The University of Tennessee and IMG/Lady Vol Network proudly announce the arrival a new product to the Vol Network Home Entertainment lineup. “The Pat Summitt Story” commemorative edition DVD box set is available for order now by shopping the Vol Network Store online at www.volnetwork.tv. TURNOVERS COST UT VS. GEORGIA Coach Pat Summitt had been warning her team about living on the edge. Georgia finally capitalized on UT’s miscues in their 53-50 win in Athens on Jan. 21. The Lady Vols committed 23 miscues which led to 21 Georgia points. Almost one-half of their game total of 53 points. CAIN’S MUTINY Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain earned “game warrior” kudos in the win at Florida. The 6-6 paint presence went to the deck with a hip contusion late in the first half but battled back down the stretch and was a key to UT’s win. Cain tossed in a career high 17 points and grabbed 10 rebounds against the Lady Gators. She tallied her 16th career double digit scoring effort her fifth career double digit rebounding contest and notched her third career double double. NAMES ARE BACK In response to an inordinate amount of phone calls, mail and texts from Tennessee fans, the Lady Vols names are back on their jerseys. 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. 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. 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. With their addition, eight 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 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. 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. HOW BOUT SHEKINNA STRICKLEN! After crashing to the floor, with what looked like a serious injury, and playing just two minutes and not returning to the Old Dominion game Shekinna Stricklen returned the very next game to have a career night. 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 LV 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. HEY! WE LOVE A HAPPY MEAL The Tennessee Lady Vols leads the nation with the number of McDonald’s High School All-Americans 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 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. Individually, former Lady Vol All-American and Olympian Candace Parker was selected as the 11th best female athlete over the last decade. 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. Joining the eighttime NCAA Champions are signees Lauren Avant, a 5’9”, guard from Memphis, Tenn., (The Lausanne Collegiate School) and Meighan Simmons, a 5’9” guard from Byron P. Steele High School in Cibolo, Texas. 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. The 34th annual Wooden Award ceremony, which will include the announcement of the Men’s and Women’s Wooden Award, and the presen-

SEC Game Notes • #1 Tennessee vs. #8 South Carolina or #9 Ole Miss • Mar. 5, 2010 2009-10 LADY VOL GAME NOTES ALMANAC tation 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. 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 953195 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) 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. The Lady Vols know something about home court winning streaks – Tennessee shares the NCAA record at 69 consecutive wins at home. Wins Team Broken by UT 64 Old Dominion …on 2-16-81, 76-70 61 Virginia …on 3-25-96, 52-46 54 Connecticut …on 1-10-99, 92-81 53 Rutgers …on 12-30-88, 93-53 52 Louisiana Tech …on 11-30-98, 92-73 44 Texas …on 12-14-86, 85-78 33 Old Dominion …on 1-19-99, 77-61 33 Texas Tech …on 12-18-96, 79-71 31 South Carolina …on 3-7-80, 67-54 30 Colorado …on 12-17-94, 78-72 29 Old Dominion ...on 12-18-08, 81-76 26 Arizona State …on 11-19-06, 83-74 25 Portland …on 11-30-97, 74-51 24 Duke ...on 1-28-08, 67-64 23 Stanford …on 12-4-05, 74-67 20 Florida …on 2-1-95, 76-69 19 Louisiana Tech …on 1-9-95, 62-56 18 Alabama …on 2-9-95, 95-44 17 George Washington ...on 12-2-08, 71-59 17 Old Dominion …on 1-24-95, 77-54 ONLY SEVEN TEAMS HAVE DOUBLE-DIGIT WINS LSU is among seven teams who have the distinction of registering double-digit wins over Tennessee all-time as the Lady Tigers have 12 under four coaches (Jinks Coleman, Sue Gunter, Pokey Chatman and Van Chancellor). When UT coach Pat Summitt claimed her 1,000th career win last season, it was only fitting that she earn the win over her toughest coaching rival -- Georgia’s Andy Landers. Summitt and Landers first started squaring off in preseason exhibition games when Landers was the coach at nearby Roane State Community College in Harriman, Tenn. Summitt and her Lady Vols have a number of great rivalries but none can compare with the success of Landers and his Lady Bulldogs against UT. Only seven programs have ever registered double-digit wins over Tennessee -- Louisiana Tech 17, Georgia 15, Connecticut 13, LSU, Texas and Tennessee Tech 12 and Auburn 10. Landers has been onboard at Georgia for all 15 wins and leads the pack of winning coaches in these games. UConn’s Geno Auriemma has 13 wins over UT; as head coach Leon Barmore had 12 at La Tech (also 5 as co-head coach); Jody Conradt claimed 11 wins over the Lady Vols while at Texas and Mary Nell Meadors grabbed 10 wins at Tennessee Tech.

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 one-fourth 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). 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). NINTH BEST START TO OPEN THE SEASON Before being snapped by Stanford, the 9-0 start to begin the 2009-10 campaign was tied for the ninth best start in Lady Vol program history. All-time, there have been 15 perfect starts to a season (of at least 7 wins).

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


SEC Game Notes • #1 Tennessee vs. #8 South Carolina or #9 Ole Miss • Mar. 5, 2010 2009-10 LADY VOL GAME NOTES ALMANAC ...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 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 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.

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. 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, 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.

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

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. Ole Miss/South Carolina • March 5, 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 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 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 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.

GAME 17: #rv/22 VANDERBILT The Vanderbilt Commodores came into Thompson-Boling Arena with an all-time record of 0-24 against the Lady Vols in Knoxville. And the Commodores would head westward to Nashville with an 0-25 mark after the Lady Vols survived rival Vanderbilt, 64-57, on Jan. 17. The Lady Vols started the contest hot, opening with an 11-3 run over the first 4:43. The Tennessee defense would stifle the VU offense, not allowing a field goal for over seven minutes and holding the Commodores scoreless from the 14:09 mark to the 6:36 point of the first half. Over that stretch, Tennessee built a 27-7 lead. The Commodores would not go down without a fight and rallied to within eight, 29-21, on a pair of free throws and three straight three pointers with 4:45 to play in the half. Eighteen of VU’s 29 first half points came from behind the arc. The Lady Vols went into the halftime break with the lead for the 14th time in 2009-10. Every game in which UT has held the halftime lead, it has won this season. Vanderbilt began the second half by chipping away at the Tennessee lead and forcing the game’s second and final tie, 45-45, at the 15:04 mark. Tennessee would make five of its final six free throws to provide the final margin. Sophomore Glory Johnson led the Lady Vols with teamhighs of 17 points and nine rebounds. The Knoxville native was 6-of-11 from the field and 5-of-7 from the charity stripe. Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain tossed in 14 points on a 6-of-7 shooting performance to go with nine boards. Sophomore Shekinna Stricklen was the third Lady Vol to post double digits as she added 10 points. Tennessee was able to exploit Vanderbilt in two specialty stats. The Lady Vols turned 27 VU turnovers into 28 points and outscored the Commodores 30-12 in the paint as UT enjoyed a significant size advantage.

GAME 18: #8/8 GEORGIA The Tennessee Lady Volunteers turnover woes continued on Jan. 21 in Athens and the No. 8/8 ranked Georgia Lady Bulldogs capitalized, handing the Lady Vols their second defeat of the season, 53-50. The loss was UT’s first in Athens since dropping a 78-51 decision to the Lady Bulldogs on Jan. 17, 2000, and it also ended an eight-game winning streak for Tennessee in the series. UGA Head Coach Andy Landers has the most wins of any coach (15) against UT Head Coach Pat Summitt. Tennessee and Georgia went back-and-forth in the first half, with neither side taking a lead bigger than four. The first 20 minutes featured seven lead changes and six ties. The Lady Vols shot at least 50 percent in the first half for the eighth time this season, but were tied with the Lady Bulldogs at 30 apiece at the break. It was the first time in 2009-10 that UT was even with its opponent heading into the lockerroom. Georgia gained a two-point advantage, 32-30, 20 seconds into the second half and Tennessee forced tie number seven of the game at the 18:29 mark. Neither team was able to score again until the 15:37 point of the second half when Glory Johnson gave UT a two-point edge. Georgia’s Ashley Houts hit a three pointer at the 4:59 mark, forced a steal and converted a fastbreak layup at the 4:37 point to give the lead back to UGA. Alyssia Brewer would give the Lady Vols a 50-49 lead with 1:07 to play, but a Porsha Phillips layup and a pair of free throws provided the final margin. Tennessee shot 29.2 percent from the floor in the second half, the worst second half shooting performance of the season for UT. Johnson led Tennessee with a game-high 14 points and added eight rebounds playing all 40 minutes. Kelley Cain added 10 points and nine rebounds before fouling out with 4:13 to play. Brewer started her third career game and tallied eight points and seven rebounds.

GAME 19: #18/19 LSU On a night when the Tennessee Lady Vols’ offense struggled at times, their defense stepped up and led UT to a 55-43 win at #18/19-ranked LSU on Jan. 24. Tennessee shot just 40 percent in the first half, but limited LSU to 29.2 percent shooting in the opening frame and took a 24-22 lead into the half, despite not scoring for the final 3:15 of the stanza. The second half opened much the same way the first half ended, with neither team scoring for the first 3:06 and not converting a field goal for the first 3:24 of the second 20 minutes. Tennessee did not trail in the first half for the fifth time this season and the Lady Tigers did not gain a lead until the 11:55 point of the second half, which they held for 2:09 before UT regained the lead. The Tennessee offense bounced back and shot 50.0 percent (11-of-22) in the second half, but it was the Lady Vol defense that made the difference and allowed UT to churn out a 12 point win. The Lady Tigers were held to just 24.1 percent shooting, 7-of-29, in the second half and the Lady Vol defense held the LSU offense scoreless from the 9:35 mark to the 2:47 point, a stretch of 6:48. During that span, Tennessee turned a 37-37 tie into a 50-37 lead. Sophomore Alyssia Brewer earned Lady Vol Player of the Game honors after posting team-bests of 14 points and seven rebounds in 23 minutes of action. The Sapulpa, Okla., native made her fourth start of her career and of the season. Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain tallied double digits as she tossed in 11 points on 4-of-4 shooting from the field and 3-of-3 from the charity stripe. Cain added four blocks and three rebounds. Sophomore Glory Johnson finished with eight points and six rebounds. The post trio of Brewer, Cain and Johnson finished the game 13-of-22 and scored 33 points and hauled in 16 rebounds. Junior Angie Bjorklund, who did not start for the first time since coming off the bench at Auburn on Jan. 25, 2009, finished with 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting, including a pair of threes.

GAME 20: AUBURN In 2008-09, the Auburn Tigers became the first squad to beat Tennessee twice in one season since the 2003-04 campaign. On Jan. 28, the Tigers came to Thompson-Boling Arena and the Lady Vols sent AU back to the Plains with an 85-56 loss. Four Lady Vols finished the night with double digit scoring efforts, led by junior Angie Bjorklund’s 20 points and sophomore Glory Johnson’s 10th career double double of 15 points and 13 rebounds. For the night, Tennessee tied a school record of 13 three-pointers made, keyed by a 6-of-12 performance from behind the arc by Bjorklund. It marked the 18th time that the Spokane Valley, Wash., native has made at least four three pointers in a contest during her tenure at Rocky Top. Sophomore Shekinna Stricklen tossed in a trio of triples en route to scoring 17 points for the game, and hauled in five rebounds. Classmate Alyssia Brewer came off the bench to score 11 points and pulled in eight boards. On a night when the Lady Vols converted 56.5 percent of their threes, the second best three point shooting night of the season, it would be fitting that Johnson made her first career triple too. With 2:50 remaining in the first half and UT holding a 34-25 lead, the ball rolled to Johnson and she heaved up a prayer as she was falling backwards with three seconds on the shot clock and hit nothing but net. The Tigers jumped to an early lead, 5-0, at the 18:27 mark of the first half, but Tennessee used a series of runs and good defense to take a 43-25 halftime lead. Tennessee also won the battle of the paint as UT’s post combination of Kelley Cain and Brewer combined for 18 points and 13 rebounds, while holding AU’s KeKe Carrier to eight points, six below her season average. The Lady Vols outscored the Tigers 34-22 in the paint and won the rebounding battle, 43-37, for the 19th time this season.

GAME 21: SOUTH CAROLINA The Tennessee Lady Vols overcame early shooting woes and a hot South Carolina start to claim a 60-55 win on Jan. 31 in Columbia. The win improved Tennessee to 42-2 all-time against South Carolina, including the past 38 consecutive contests. The Gamecocks raced out to a 13-0 lead before Tennessee got its first basket at the 15:55 mark of the first half, an Alyssia Brewer jumper in the paint. Freshman Kamiko Williams played arguably her best game of the season to date and kept the Lady Vols in the game with 10 first half points on 4-of-8 shooting. Tennessee trailed for the entire first half and went into the break down 26-25. The Lady Vols continued to fight and keep the game close, and took their first lead of the game with 7:53 left in the contest on a Brewer jumper in the paint off an assist by Williams. Tennessee made key plays down the stretch to escape Columbia with a victory. Junior Angie Bjorklund hit a jumper with 27 seconds left from the left wing as the shot clock nearly ran out, giving UT a 58-55 lead. On the next possession, South Carolina attempted to inbound the ball in front of its own bench when sophomore Alicia Manning tipped the pass and Williams snatched up the loose ball. The rookie coolly converted both free throws to give Tennessee a five point advantage. The Lady Vol defense forced another turnover on a Gamecock inbound play underneath the South Carolina hoop, with Bjorklund coming up with the loose ball on the final play of the game. Williams tallied a team high and career best 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting and dished out four assists. Brewer tossed in 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting, including a 4-of-5 performance from the charity stripe, while redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain added 10. The Lady Vol bench outscored the South Carolina reserves 32-6.

GAME 22: ARKANSAS The Tennessee Lady Vols enjoyed a significant size advantage against the Arkansas Razorbacks on Feb. 4 and used the edge to earn a 74-57 victory at Thompson-Boling Arena. Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain and sophomore Alyssia Brewer dominated down low at both ends of the floor. On the offensive end, the pair combined for 34 points and eight offensive boards, and helped UT enjoy a 40-16 advantage in paint points. On the defensive end, the two combined for 18 boards and 10 blocks, while limiting the Razorback starting post game to just two points and six total rebounds. Cain tied Ashley Robinson’s school record of eight blocks and posted a career-best 17 rebounds, while Brewer tallied her second career 20-plus point performance. Tennessee got the first bucket of the game, a fastbreak layup by Shekinna Stricklen, and never looked back. The Lady Vols never trailed in the contest for the fifth time this season. Tennessee also owned a 51-41 advantage on the glass, the 21st time this season UT has won the battle of the boards. The Lady Vols’ top two scorers, junior Angie Bjorklund and Stricklen, combined for two points on 1-of-8 shooting in the first half. The duo responded by going 9-of-16 for 27 points in the second half. Sophomore Glory Johnson came off the bench for the third time in 2009-10 and tallied five points and six rebounds in 12 minutes of action. Freshman Kamiko Williams became the 59th rookie to start a game at Rocky Top, getting the nod at point guard, and finished with three points, two rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes. The victory earned the Lady Vols their 34th consecutive season of at least 20 wins, tying the seventh fastest squad to the milestone and extended UT’s winning streak to 16 against the Razorbacks.

GAME 23: #rv/R22 VANDERBILT You would expect a game between squads meeting for the 63rd time would be close and that is exactly what happened in Nashville when the Tennessee Lady Vols traveled to face the rival Vanderbilt Commodores on Feb. 8. The contest featured mini-runs by both sides, six ties and three lead changes, and the Lady Vols came out on top, 69-60. The win gives Tennessee the regular-season sweep of the Commodores and improved the Lady Vols to 55-7 all-time against VU. The victory also prevented Vanderbilt from claiming two consecutive wins in Nashville over Tennessee for the first time. Tennessee opened the game making six of its first seven shots and building a 12-7 advantage at the first media timeout. The Lady Vols would go cold, making only one of its next 15 shots and falling behind 20-16. Vandy stretched its lead to 2820 with 4:08 left in the half, but in their final six possessions of the period, the Commodores would go 0-of-3 from the floor and turn the ball over three times. Over that span, UT got a pair of buckets and was 4-of-4 from the charity stripe to tie the game at 28 at the half. Vanderbilt opened the second half with a three-pointer and Tennessee kept it close, but the Lady Vols would not get their first lead of the final 20 minutes until the 5:33 mark. Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain made a statement rejection of VU’s Gabby Smith and sophomore Alicia Manning picked up the loose ball and raced for a layup, putting UT up 52-51 and giving the Lady Vols the lead for good. Tennessee made nine of its final 11 shots and 6-of-8 free throws in the final 1:04 to seal the win. Cain finished with a career-high 19 points go with seven boards and five blocks. Sophomore Glory Johnson posted all of her 10 points and eight rebounds in 12 second half minutes. Junior Angie Bjorklund pitched in 10 points and four rebounds, while sophomore Alyssia Brewer added 10 points and seven boards off the bench.

GAME 24: OLE MISS Head Coach Pat Summitt always talks about the ability of the three-pointer to change the course of a game, on defense the need to defend and on offense the momentum it can provide. On Feb. 11 in Oxford, the long ball was especially important as Tennessee came away with a 61-58 win over the Ole Miss Rebels. Junior Angie Bjorklund made four triples, the first of which put her over the 1,000 point mark for her career. The last of which came with three seconds to play and gave Tennessee the win. In between, Ole Miss hit 10 threes, tying the most by a UT foe this year, five of which came from Elizabeth Robertson. The double digit three-pointers by the Rebels allowed them to hold the lead for most of the second half. Tennessee briefly held the lead five minutes into the second half, but would not take the advantage for good until an Alyssia Brewer layup at the 3:17 mark. A Bjorklund three put UT up 58-54 with 2:41 to go, but Ole Miss tied it at 58 on a Bianca Thomas layup with 16 seconds to go. After Summitt called a timeout to draw up a final play, Shekinna Stricklen was cut off and handed back to Bjorklund who hit a three pointer with three seconds left for the win. This marks the second consecutive year that Bjorklund has hit a three to beat Ole Miss. Last year in Knoxville, she hit one from the right corner with eight seconds left for a 60-59 win. Stricklen led the Lady Vols with 13 points, eight assists and four rebounds. Brewer earned player of the game honors with 12 points and eight boards off the bench. Bjorklund tallied nine second half points to finish with 12, and added six assists and four rebounds. Alicia Manning, making her third start of the season, finished with a season high 10 points on 5-of-8 shooting. Redshirt sophomore post Kelley Cain tallied only seven points but hauled in 16 rebounds, leading UT to a rebounding advantage for the 23rd time this season. The Lady Vols outscored Ole Miss 32-10 in the paint and the UT bench provided a 15-2 edge over the Rebel reserves.

GAME 25: FLORIDA The first time the Lady Volunteers and Gators squared off in 200910, it took a revers layup by junior Angie Bjorklund with 2.3 seconds remaining to decide the contest, a 66-64 win for UT in Gainesville. For the first 14 minutes of the second meeting, it looked as if the contest would play out in a very similar manner. However, UT used a 10-0 run over four minutes, 10 seconds late in the first half to build a 31-21 lead, and the Lady Vols would head into the lockerroom with a 34-28 lead. Despite having a lead, Coach Summitt challenged the team at the break and the Lady Vols came out much more aggressive in the final 20 minutes, which would be arguably the best half of basketball by UT this season. The Tennessee defense held the Gators to just 16 points on 21.2 percent shooting. The 16 points were the fewest UT has allowed in the second stanza all season. Conversely, the 49 points are the most UT has scored in the second half of an SEC game and the 64.5 percent Tennessee shot from the field in the second half is the best by the Lady Vols all season in the final 20 minutes. Bjorklund scored a game-high 24 points on 9-of-17 shooting, including a 6-of-12 effort from three-point range and dished out three assists. The contest marked her 50th career double digit scoring game and the 20th time she has converted at least four threes in a game. Bjorklund began the game in fifth place on the single season threes made list and finished the day in second with 81. In total, four of five UT starters tallied double digit scoring games. Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain tied a career high with 19 points, to go with eight rebounds and seven blocks, one off the school record. Sophomores Shekinna Stricklen and Alicia Manning added 12 and 11 points, respectively. Stricklen added six boards and four assists, while Manning tallied nine boards and tied a career high with six assists. Tennessee won the points in the paint battel, 42-20, and finished 12 blocks, tying the most ever against the Gators and one shy of the Tennessee school record.

GAME 26: ALABAMA The Tennessee Lady Volunteers made their final road trip of the 2009-10 regular season to Tuscaloosa, Ala., for a match-up with the Alabama Crimson Tide on Feb. 18. Tennessee escaped from Tuscaloosa with a 74-67 victory and finished the conference road slate with a 7-1 record after going just 2-5 in away games in 2008-09. Head Coach Pat Summitt announced on Wednesday before leaking Knoxville that 6-6 center Kelley Cain would not travel with the team in order to stay in Knoxville and attend class. Without the dominating presence of Cain inside, sophomore Alyssia Brewer was called upon to start, the sixth time in her career she has earned the nod. Brewer earned Player of the Game honors after posting her fourth career double-double with a team high 20 points and a game high 10 rebounds. Brewer’s inside game was not enough as Tennessee was outrebounded for only the second time on the campaign, 4533, and outscored in the paint, 40-36. The Lady Vols made two key runs, one in each half, to put some distance between themselves and the Crimson Tide. In the first half, UT put together a 9-0 stretch to turn a 19-19 tie into a 28-19 Big Orange lead with 4:59 remaining in the frame. The Lady Vol defense kept the Crimson Tide without a field goal from the 9:44 mark of the second half to the 5:02 point, using a 13-4 run to build a 67-53 lead. Sophomore Shekinna Stricklen was 7-of-12 from the floor to finish with 14 points for Tennesseee. She added five boards and three steals. Junior Angie Bjorklund tossed in 13 points on 5-of-13 shooting, and added five rebonds and a pair of assists, while playing all 40 minutes. Tennessee forced 24 Crimson Tide turnovers, the second most by a Lady Vol foe this season, and turned the miscues into 27 points.

GAME 27: #20/rv LSU The Tennessee Lady Volunteers began the final week of the 2009-10 regular season with a Big Monday match-up with the 20th-ranked LSU Lady Tigers on Feb. 22, and the Lady Vols claimed a 70-61 victory. The win gave UT a share of the SEC regular-season title and a season sweep of the Lady Tigers, the fourth league foe Tennessee has beaten twice this season. After missing the Alabama game, redshirt-sophomore Kelley Cain returned to the Lady Vol lineup in a big way. Despite playing only 23 minutes before fouling out, the Atlanta, Ga., native scored 16 points, blocked 12 shots and grabbed seven rebounds. The 12 blocks are a UT single-game record and is the second-best single-game performance in SEC history. Cain’s 12 rejections were a part of UT’s 14 team blocks, which set another Lady Vol record. With the impressive display of shot blocking, Cain moved from fifth to second in the single-season record books with 91 swats on the campaign. After shooting a dismal 40 percent from the charity stripe in their last outing, the Lady Vols set a new single game mark by making all 10 of their free throws attempts, all of which came in the second half. Tennessee held LSU without a field goal from the 4:03 mark of the first half to the 0:01 point, turning a 24-21 advantage into a 32-21 lead. After the first half saw five ties and three lead changes, the Lady Vols controlled the entire final 20 minutes en route to victory and committed a seasonlow seven turnovers. In addtion to Cain, sophomore Alyssia Brewer posted 18 points and grabbed six boards. Classmate Glory Johnson finished in double digits with 12 points in addition to pulling down eight boards. Junior Angie Bjorklund and sophomore Shekinna Stricklen each tossed in 10 points and combined for 10 assists - half of the team total of 20 - and five rebounds.

GAME 28: #16/14 KENTUCKY The Tennessee Lady Volunteers clinched their 15th regular season Southeastern Conference title with an 81-65 victory over the #16/14 Kentucky Wildcats on Feb. 25. With the win, UT extended its home winning streak to 16 games and its home winning streak against UK to 15 games. Tennessee opened the game on a 9-2 run and held the Wildcats without a field goal for 6:15 early in the contest to turn a 9-4 advantage into a 20-6 lead with 11:17 to play in the half. UK pulled within seven (23-16) with 9:12 left in the opening frame, but the Lady Vols ran off a 13-0 stretch to the 5:21 mark and built a 37-16 margin. The Lady Vols would head into the lockerrom with a 45-31 edge, the 21st time UT has held a lead after the first 20 minutes. Tennessee never trailed in the first half for the seventh time this season and would not trail in the game for the sixth time on the campaign. The Lady Vols’ size proved to be too much for the Wildcats as UT again set a school record in blocks for the second consecutive game. The 15 rejections tallied against UK topped the previous mark of 14 set on Feb. 22 against LSU. Despite playing only three minutes in the first half after picking up two quick fouls, redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain responded to score 11 points, grab six boards and block six shots in the second half. She finished with a team-high 14 points and seven blocks. Four other Lady Vols, led by sophomore Glory Johnson’s 13 points, finished in double figures. Johnson hauled in eight boards as well. Junior Angie Bjorklund and sophomore Shekinna Stricklen each added 12 points, while Stricklen pulled down seven boards and dished out five assists. Sophomore Alyssia Brewer added 10 points, seven rebounds and four blocks. Classmate Alicia Manning grabbed a career-best and game-high 11 rebounds. Tennessee outscored UK 36-26 in the paint and the Lady Vol reserves outscored the Wildcat bench 26-8.
