LOVE US, HATE US … GOTTA R-E-S-P-E-C-T US The #3/3-ranked and #1-seeded Tennessee Lady Vols open play in their 29th consecutive NCAA Tournament – the ONLY team to have garnered an invitation to every “Big Dance.” All-time, UT has received 14 automatic bids and been selected as an at-large team 15 times. This year, the Lady Vols’ 2010 number one seed marked the 20th time Tennessee has earned a top billing. Prior to last season’s fifth place seeding (2009), UT had never been seeded lower than fourth (1986) and has been seeded in the #2 slot four times (1982, 1987, 2002, 2006) and #3, three times (1984, 1985, 1997). Tennessee has a phenomenal 104-20 record in 124 NCAA Tournament games – all under head coach Pat Summitt. #1 SEED FOR UT THIS YEAR The University of Tennessee has earned 20 number-one seeds all-time in the NCAA Tournament since 1982.

FIVE ALIVE In the OVC Tournament final against Eastern Illinois, five Lady Govs scored in double figures. All-Tournament team selection Nicole Jamen had 19 points, while Tournament MVP Ashley Herring recorded 15. Jasmine Rayner and Whitney Hanley each finished with 12 and Brooke Faulkner rounded out the quintet, posting 10 points. GOOD OL’ ROCKY TOP This weekend will mark the 24th time that Knoxville has hosted NCAA Tournament games and the 18th time that Thompson-Boling Arena has served as a host site. Games were held at Stokely Athletic Center from 1982-1987 before moving to TBA from 1988-2003. The most recent NCAA Tournament game played in Knoxville took place on March 22, 2005 and saw Tennessee head coach Pat Summitt record her 880th win, passing Dean Smith to become the all-time winningest basketball coach in NCAA Division I history. SHE’S ON FIRE In her last eight games, junior guard/forward Ashley Herring is averaging 19.6 ppg and making exactly 50 percent of her shots. Included in this hot streak are backto-back 28 point outings against Jacksonville State and Tennessee Tech. Over this span, the Lady Governors are 6-2. ALL IN THE FAMILY Austin Peay has a very unique connection to Tenenssee head coach Pat Summitt. In addition to being located just 13 miles from her birthplace, Henrietta, Tenn., it is also the alma mater of two of her brothers, Tommy and Kenneth Head. Tommy (Austin Peay ‘67) would later serve eight terms in the Tennessee House of Representatives from 1988-2004. RECIPE(S) FOR SUCCESS Austin Peay is a perfect 12-0 when it shoots a better field goal percentage than its opponent. The Lady Govs are also 11-1 when leading at halftime and 9-3 when scoring between 70-79 points. THE LONE SENIOR Second-team All-OVC selection Nicole Jamen is the only senior on the Austin Peay roster. Jamen has done her part to lead this team this season, averaging 10.5 ppg and a team-best 8.7 rpg, which ranks third in the conference. Jamen has hit double-digit points in 19 of 32 contests this season. She is also one of two Lady Govs to start every game of the 2009-10 campaign. A GRAND AFFAIR Ashley Herring became the 13th Lady Govs player to record 1,000 career points with her 20-point outing at Murray State on Feb. 6. She currently sits at 1,161 points for her career, which ranks 11th in school history. On the season, Herring is averaging a team-high 14.8 ppg and has scored over 20 points in nine different games. SHE CAN DISH, TOO Herring also leads Austin Peay with an average of 2.5 assists per game, which ranks her 10th in the Ohio Valley Conference. Her career high for assists in a game is five, which she has reached on two occasions this year, most recently against Southeast Missouri on Feb. 27. She also has seven four-assist games, six of which came in conference victories. FAMILIAR FOES APSU sophomore forward/center Jasmine Rayner and Tennessee freshman guard Kamiko Williams may be facing off for the first time as collegiate athletes, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t matched up before. In 2007, Rayner’s Memphis Northside High School team defeated Williams’ Clarksville Northeast squad in the TSSAA Class AAA Semifinals, 65-52. Rayner tied for a game-high with 23 points and pulled down 13 boards,

while Williams led her team with 19 points. NO SOPHOMORE SLUMP HERE The Lady Govs boast an extremely talented group of sophomores: forward/center Jasmine Rayner, guards Whitney Hanley and Lauren Jones, and center Nikki Talley. All four of these players saw their scoring totals increase from their freshman seasons, most notably Rayner. The Memphis, Tenn., native jumped from 4.6 ppg and 3.3 rpg to 10.5 and 7.3, respectively. Rayner was named OVC Player of the Week for the week of Dec. 20. Jones also saw her point output more than double, going from 2.1 ppg in 2008-09 to 4.5 ppg this year. STILL IN THE RECORD BOOKS The 2001 Tennessee-Austin Peay NCAA Tournament matchup still holds two TBA postseason records: Tennessee’s 59 rebounds are the most ever pulled down in a game by one team and APSU’s 13 field goals tie for the fewest made in a game. Lady Govs center Gerlonda Hardin had seven blocks, a total which still stands as both an Austin Peay and Thompson-Boling Arena NCAA Tournament game record. A ROSE FOR BROOKE Junior guard Brooke Faulkner has averaged 6.3 ppg and ranks second on the team with 1.9 assists per game this season. Faulkner went for 10 points against Eastern Illinois in the OVC Championship game and averaged 11.3 ppg against the Panthers this season. She had a career-high 20 points against EIU on Dec. 5. CONFERENCE SUCCESS The Lady Governors finished in third place in the OVC with an 11-7 mark in league play. That conference record is Austin Peay’s best league finish since winning the 2003-04 regular-season championship. APSU ranked fourth in scoring average with 68.0 points per game. Austin Peay made 40.2 percent of its field goals—third best in the league—but only 29.6 percent of its three-pointers, good for sixth in the conference.

UT VS. ATLANTIC 10 The Lady Vols have faced 10 teams from the Atlantic 10 Conference all-time, compiling a record of 25-1. Tennessee’s only loss to an A-10 team came in the 2001 NCAA Mideast Regional Semifinal at the hands of fourthseed Xavier. The No. 1-seeded Lady Vols fell 80-65 in Birmingham, Ala., on March 24, 2001. The last time UT faced an A-10 team in the NCAA Tournament was in 2006 when the Lady Vols defeated George Washington, 66-53, in the second round in Norfolk, Va., on March 21, 2006. UT’s most recent matchups with the A-10 have been when it has played the Colonials the past two seasons, winning 71-59 in Washington D.C. in 2008, and 93-53 in Knoxville on Dec. 1, 2009. Current members of the Atlantic 10 Conference include: Charlotte, Dayton, Duquesne, Fordham, George Washington, La Salle, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Richmond, St. Bonaventure, Saint Joseph’s, Saint Louis,

DAYTON NOTES SEED AND BID: No. 8 Memphis, at-large bid NCAA APPEARANCES: 1 FIRST TIME FLYIN’ Dayton’s selection to the NCAA Tournament is a first in program history as a Division I team. The Flyers join five other teams making a first appearance in the “Big Dance.” Princeton, Portland State, Arkansas-Little Rock and UNI are the others. Dayton earned an eightseed by registering a 24-7 overall record that included a 2-3 mark against ranked teams. UD also finished second in the Atlantic 10 Conference with an 11-3 mark and advanced to the conference tournament semifinals. The Flyers meet No. 9-seeded TCU in the first round. The Lady Frogs are making their ninth appearance in the tournament. It’s the first-ever matchup between the two teams. MORE FLYER FIRSTS Dayton’s selection to the NCAA Tournament isn’t its only history-making first this season. UD also won its first game ever against a Top 10 team and entered the AP and ESPN/USA Today polls for the first time. The Flyers opened the season by upsetting No. 10 Michigan State, 77-74, in Dayton, and peaked as high as No. 20 in the polls. Dayton won its most Atlantic 10 games in program history, going 11-3 in the league, and received votes in the polls for 19 consecutive weeks. Additionally, Dayton’s second-place conference finish is also an alltime best. REFUSE TO LOSE (TWO IN A ROW) The Flyers haven’t lost two games in a row all season. It’s a streak UD will look to continue after falling in its last game to Temple, 67-64, in overtime of the A-10 tournament semifinals on March 7. Since getting crushed by A-10 champion Xavier on Jan. 30, 74-49, Dayton has won 8 of 10 with both losses coming in overtime to NCAA Tournament teams, the Musketeers and Owls. NATIONALLY KNOWN A WAYS BACK While this is Dayton’s first appearance in the NCAA Tournament, Dayton isn’t without national championship experience. The Flyers had an incredible twoyear stretch from 1978-1980, taking AIAW Division II National Runner-Up honors in 1979 before claiming the 1980 AIAW Division II National Championship. The Flyers hammered Charleston (S.C.), 83-53, in the national championship game in front of a home crowd on March 23, 1980. UD compiled a 68-5 record during that remarkable two-year stretch. Dayton also went to the NCAA Division II Quarterfinals in 1983 and the Semifinals in 1984. The Flyers entered Division I in 1984-85. THREE-YEAR RUN Dayton is in the midst of its best three-year stretch since its historic run in the late 1970s and early 80s. UD’s three consecutive 20-win seasons is a first for the program since recording five straight 20-win marks from 1976-81. Dayton’s current run of success started with the 2007-08 season when the Flyers went 25-9 and lost in the first round of the Women’s NIT. A year later, UD’s record was 21-14, and the season ended with a narrow two-point loss to Indiana in the WNIT second round. This season, the 24-7 Flyers are hoping to add a few more wins to its season total at the NCAA Tournament.


UD AMONG POTENT A-10 TRIO UD joins fellow 8-seed Temple and third-seeded Xavier as Atlantic 10 teams in the tournament. Last season, the A-10 went 0-3 with the Musketeers, Owls and 49ers of Charlotte all falling in the first round. In 2008, Xavier and Temple were also knocked out in the first round, but George Washington made a run to the Sweet 16. DANCING PARTNERS The Flyers faced five NCAA Tournament teams a total of seven times this season, nabbing a 3-4 record. In the first week of the season, Dayton downed a pair of No. 5 seeds, Michigan State (Kansas City Region) and Georgetown (Memphis Region). UD was swept, however, by third-seed Xavier, split with eighth-seeded Temple, and dropped a 74-65 contest to American East champion Vermont, a 10th seed. UD VS. 2010 NCAA TOURNAMENT TEAMS Nov. 13 Michigan St. Dayton, Ohio W, 77-74 Nov. 20 Georgetown West Lafayette, Ind. W, 62-59 Dec. 29 Vermont Hanover, N.H.

L, 64-67(OT) BREAKING THE 1,000-POINT BARRIER TWICE Flyer senior guard Kendel Ross became the 19th UD women’s basketball player to score 1,000 career points in Dayton’s 71-63 win over Temple on Feb. 20. Ross’ feat marked the first time in UD history that two Flyers reached the mark in the same season, as junior forward Kristin Dougherty had surpassed the plateau during a 74-60 win at Massachusetts on Feb. 13. Ross and Daugherty are averaging 9.7 ppg apiece this season and were each named to the A-10 Third Team. The pair has also started all 31 games this season for the Flyers. SPREADING THE WEALTH Dayton coach Jim Jabir has no problem looking down his bench - way down his bench - when he needs a sub, as 11 Flyers are averaging at least 10 minutes a game. Those 11 players all like to share, too. Despite averaging 71.6 ppg as a team, only Justine Raterman is in double figures (13.0 ppg). Kendel Ross (9.7) and Kristin Daugherty (9.7) are close, but a lot of UD’s scoring load comes from seven players averaging between 4.7 and 6.1 points per contest. Nearly all of the Flyers are capable of exploding for big offensive games as 10 different players have scored at least 10 points in a game this season. NO SOPHOMORE SLUMP FOR RATERMAN For her follow-up to winning Atlantic 10 Rookie the Year honors in 2008-09, sophomore Justine Raterman led Dayton to its first-ever NCAA Tournament bid, leading the Flyers in scoring (13.0 ppg) and 3-pointers (36), while capturing A-10 Second Team accolades. An inside-outside threat, the 6-1 Versailles, Ohio, native has started all but one game in her Flyer career and boasts a .534 field goal percentage, as well as a 5.9 average on the boards this season. She averaged 19.5 ppg and 6.5 rpg in two A-10 tournament games, while shooting a spectacular 68-percent from the field (17-of-25) to earn A-10 All-Championship honors for the second straight season. UD AND UT FOR THREE UD has connected on at least one three-point shot in 284 straight games, dating back to Jan. 2, 2001. That’s the longest streak in the Atlantic 10 Conference. The Flyers made a season-high 11 threes in the A-10 Tournament Quarterfinals against St. Bonaventure on March 6. Justine Raterman (36 threes) and Kendel Ross (34) are Dayton’s most prolific downtown bombers. As a team, UD is shooting 31.6 percent (173-548) from behind the arc. The Lady Vols have also been productive

from three-point land, making a downtown shot in 405 consecutive games dating back to Jan. 28, 1999. Led by deadeye junior Angie Bjorklund’s .429 percentage (93217), Tennessee has connected on an SEC-best 37.8 percent (171-458) of its trifecta attempts. DADDY’S GIRL It should come as no surprise that Dayton’s sophomore starting center, Casey Nance, has become the Atlantic 10’s most feared shot-blocker. Her father, Larry, ranks 18th all-time in NBA history in swats. Casey has led the A-10 in blocks the past two seasons, totaling 123 putbacks for a 1.86 average. Pops totaled 2,027 blocks (2.20 bpg) in 15 NBA seasons with the Phoenix Suns and Cleveland Cavaliers. He made three All-Star teams and three All-Defensive teams as a springy post player. Casey made her first A-10 All-Defensive team this season and also leads the Flyers in rebounding (6.1 rpg). Larry averaged 17.2 ppg and 8.0 boards, but might best be known for winning the first NBA Slam Dunk Contest in 1984. FLY GUYS Among Dayton’s alumni are current sports media personalities Dan Patrick (‘79) and Jon Gruden (‘86). Patrick is a former anchor of ESPN’s SportsCenter who now writes for Sports Illustrated and hosts The Dan Patrick Show. Gruden is currently a color commentator for Monday Night Football. He was previously the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Oakland Raiders, winning the Super Bowl with the Bucs in 2003. Other notable alums with sports ties are Jim Paxson (‘79), who was a two-time NBA All-Star with the Portland Trailblazers, and former Notre Dame football coach Gerry Faust (‘58). LALOR A TV STAR If the Flyers are on TV, expect a big game from point guard Patrice Lalor. In two nationally-televised games this season, Lalor has been the Flyers’ leading scorer, averaging 14.5 ppg and 4.5 assists. In 31 total games, the Toledo, Ohio, native, is averaging 4.8 ppg and 4.0 assists. She dropped a career-high 16 on St. Bonaventure on Jan. 16 and a team-high 13 versus UMass on Feb. 13. Both games were broadcast by CBSCollegeSports. The Flyers’ first-round matchup with TCU will be broadcast by ESPN2, as will their second-round game if they get past the Lady Frogs. What a coach Dayton women’s basketball coach Jim Jabir has had an impressive string of success in his seven sea-

sons at the helm of the Flyers. He has transformed Dayton from a team that won just three games his first season (2003-04) to a squad in the midst of its third straight 20-win season and an NCAA Tournament berth. His 114 wins rank second all-time in Dayton history, and he was named as one of 10 finalists for the inaugural Kay Yow Award this season. Lady Vol head coach Pat Summitt is also a finalist for the award that was established to honor the Division I women’s head coach who embodies not only a winning spirit but who also displays great character on and off the court. The award will be presented at the 2010 Women’s Final Four in San Antonio.

TCU finished with an even 3-3 mark, splitting its four non-conference contests and its league season series against San Diego State. In TCU’s second game of the year, it downed Fresno State, 63-52, in Fort Worth. In its next outing, TCU fell, 74-70, at No. 20/16 Oklahoma. On Dec. 6, the Lady Frogs traveled to Raleigh, N.C., to face N.C. State, but the Wolfpack came away with a 76-62 victory.

Mittie’s squads boast a 5-8 overall record in NCAA games. TCU’s best seed came in 2004 when the Lady Frogs were a No. 6 seed in the West Region, where they fell, 85-71, to thirdseeded Georgia in the second round. Seven of the 11 players on last year’s Lady Frog NCAA Tournament team are back for another dance, including all five starters. In last year’s first round loss to No. 7 seed South Dakota State, Helena Sverrisdottir led TCU with 12 points, eight rebounds and four assists. Emily Carter tossed in 11 points, while TK LaFleur pitched in 10. PUTTING THE BIG ‘D’ IN THE METROPLEX The Lady Frogs held 20 of their 30 opponents this season to under 40 percent shooting. In those contests, TCU posted a 17-3 mark. Five Lady Frog opponents were able to shoot between 40 and 45 percent, with TCU posting a 3-2 record in those games. Five times the team TCU was facing shot better than 45 percent for the game, and the Lady Frogs went 2-3 in those outings. HOME SWEET HOME TCU posted a perfect 15-0 home mark in the friendly confines of Daniel-Meyer Coliseum and boasted a +22.0 ppg scoring margin in home contests in 200910. The Lady Frogs currently own a 22-home game winning streak, with their last home loss coming on Jan. 13, 2009, when BYU knocked off TCU, 62-46. Likewise, the Lady Vols currently have a 17 home-game winning streak, dating to a 62-54 loss to No. 7/10 Duke on Feb. 16, 2009. Tennessee finished off a perfect 15-0 home regular-season record with a 75-63 win over Ole Miss on


Feb. 28. The Lady Vols have gone unblemished 12 times at home, including nine perfect seasons at ThompsonBoling Arena. TRIPLE THE FUN Lady Frogs’ junior Helena Sverrisdottir recorded the second triple-double in TCU history on Jan. 2. The Hafnarfjordur, Iceland, native tossed in 17 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out 11 assists in a 7874 victory over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. One day later, the Lady Vols would see the second triple-double in UT history when sophomore Shekinna Stricklen scored 17 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and dished out 12 assists in a 96-75 win over No. 14/15 Oklahoma in Knoxville. THE ENVELOPE PLEASE... After claiming the regular-season Mountain West crown, the Lady Frogs also cleaned up some hardware with six TCU individuals earning conference recognition and all five starters from the final two regular season contests being selected. Helena Sverrisdottir was chosen by the league coaches as the Mountain West Player of the Year and head man Jeff Mittie was tabbed as the league’s Coach of the Year. Sverrisdottir and junior Emily Carter were selected to the First Team All-Mountain West Conference, while senior TK LaFleur was named to the Third Team. Freshman Starr Crawford and senior Eboni Mangum were each named Honorable Mention All-MWC. In addition, Mangum was selected to the AllDefensive Team. NUMBERS GAME The following are key stats to keep an eye on: Under Head Coach Jeff Mittie, TCU is... ... 200-26 when leading at the half ... 71-1 when scoring 80+ points ... 150-5 when allowing 60 points or less ... 116-2 when owning a double digit halftime lead ... 185-27 when holding opponents to 40.0% FGs or less ... 101-7 when shooting 45.0% FG or better This season, TCU is... ... 17-0 when shooting at least 40.0% FG ... 11-0 when allowing 59 points or fewer ... 18-2 when committing fewer turnovers than its opponent ... 16-1 when leading at the half ... 13-2 when leading or matching its opponent in rebounds TK-OH! Senior TK LaFleur returned to the starting lineup for the last five contests and helped the Lady Frogs claim three straight victories on its way to clinching the MWC regular-season crown. Over those five games, she scored 11.8 ppg while converting 45.8 percent of her field goals, in addition to pulling down 5.0 rpg and dishing out 2.2 apg. In TCU’s 66-54 win over New Mexico on March 2, a victory that clinched the Mountain West title for the Lady Frogs, she recorded her first double-double of the season with game highs of 17 points and 10 rebounds. ONE GRAND GAME LaFleur joined current Lady Frog Helena Sverrisdottir in the 1,000-career-point club in the squad’s Jan. 27 home victory over Colorado State. Against the Rams, LaFleur tallied 11 points to eclipse the 1,000-point plateau. LaFleur, who began her career at Nebraska, now has 1,125 career points, of which 777 have come since she made the move to Fort Worth. BREWIN’ AN UPSET TCU owns a pair of victories over ranked foes this season with a home win over #10/5 Texas A&M (56-54) and a neutral court win over #18/23 Kansas (74-69). TCU now has 16 wins all-time over ranked opponents, all of which have come under current head coach Jeff Mittie. The Lady Frogs have beaten a top 25 foe in each

of the past eight seasons. Three of the program’s four all-time wins over top five teams have come in the past two seasons (2009-10 vs. #10/5 Texas A&M, 2008-09 vs. #3/5 Maryland and 2008-09 vs. #3/3 Cal). TCU isn’t always the beneficiary of a home court advantage either, as was the case in their win over the Aggies. The Lady Frogs have upset at least one ranked opponent away from Fort Worth in five of the last six seasons. STRAIGHT SEVEN TCU ripped off a month-long streak of seven consecutive victories, beginning with a win at SMU on Dec. 9 and ending with a loss at Wyoming on Jan. 13. Keying the Lady Frogs straight seven was junior Emily Carter. Over that month, the 6-1 lefthander averaged 18.1 ppg while converting at a 50.0 percent clip from the field and 47.1 percent from three-point range. Carter led TCU in scoring in four of the seven games and shot 50.0 percent from three-point range in five of the seven outings. STUFF THE STAT SHEET TCU ranks in the top 50 of 10 national categories and in the top 30 in seven of those stat categories.

2010 NCAA Tournament Game Notes • Tennessee First/Second Rounds • Mar. 20 & 22 THESE SEEDS SENT UT HOME Tennessee has played in an incredible 124 games in the NCAA Tournament since 1982. Eight times the Lady Vols have brought home NCAA titles to Knoxville. On the 20 occasions when UT lost in the tournament, the number one seeded team provided the honors nine times. Before last season (2009), the Lady Vols had never lost to a team seeded lower than #4 all-time in the tournament. Ball State, a #12seed, dumped UT in 2009. The following seeds showed the Lady Vols the door in the tourney: #1 seed—1982, 1984, 1986, 1995, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006 #2 seed—1983, 1985, 1988, 1990, 1993, 2004 #3 seed—1999 #4 seed—1992, 1994, 2001 #12 seed—2009 THE MEMPHIS REGIONAL BRACKET The Lady Vols have been placed in the Memphis Regional bracket of the NCAA Tournament in 2010 -- back in the day, that would be considered the old Mideast Regional. Typically, the Lady Vols have been placed in the “Mideast Regional” and advanced to the Final Four 10 times -- in 1982, 1984, 1986, 1987, 1991, 1995, 1998, 2000, 2003 and 2007. In 2007, the Lady Vols were in the Dayton Regional (Mideast) bracket and in 2006 UT was in the Cleveland Regional. UT has been in the “Midwest” bracket of the NCAA Tournament four times. Tennessee has advanced to the Final Four from the Midwest every time: in 1997 (claiming the NCAA title in Cincinnati, Ohio), in 2002, (where the team lost to UConn in the Final Four semis in San Antonio), in 2004, (where the team lost to UConn in the NCAA title game in New Orleans) and in 2008, when the Lady Vols won the eighth title and back-to-back with a win over Stanford in the Championship game). In 2005, UT was placed in the Philadelphia Region (East) for the sixth time in 24 trips to the Big Dance. Tennessee advanced to the Final Four from the East in 1988 (finishing in 3rd in Tacoma, Washington), again in 1989 (winning UT’s second NCAA title while playing in Tacoma, Wash.), in 1996 (winning UT’s fourth NCAA title at the Final Four in Charlotte, N.C.) and 2005 (finishing third in Indianapolis at the Final Four. While advancing from the East produced two NCAA titles and two third place finishes, the East Regional is more remembered for what failed to occur for the Lady Vols. In 1990, the Lady Vols were sent to the East Regional at Old Dominion where two wins separated the Lady Vols from playing for a national championship on their home floor in Knoxville, site of the 1990 NCAA Final Four. UT got by Clemson, 80-62 in the Sweet 16 and then lost in overtime to Virginia, 79-75, failing to play in the NCAA Final Four in Knoxville. Instead of “Tennessee and the Final Three,” the Lady Vols served as hostesses for the event. Almost a decade later, the East Regional would serve up another dark day in Lady Vol hoops history. In 1999, UT was going for its fourth consecutive NCAA title after winning in 1996, 1997 and 1998. Current N.C. State head coach Kellie Jolly Harper was the Lady Vol point guard and her sidekick was four-time All-America Chamique Holdsclaw. The duo helped UT get by Virginia Tech, 68-52, in the Sweet 16 in Greensboro, N.C. However,

Duke dashed Tennessee’s dream of a fourth consecutive title with a 69-63 win. It marked UT’s last trip to the East until 2005. In the 2009 NCAA First Round loss debacle, the Lady Vols were placed in the Berkeley Regional and it marked the very first time in the (then) 28 trips to the “Big Dance” that the Lady Vols were sent to the “West.” FIRST TIME JITTERS Last season, seven Lady Vols joined the roll call against Ball State earning their first playing time in the NCAA Tournament -- Briana Bass, Alyssia Brewer, Kelley Cain, Amber Gray, Glory Johnson, Alicia Manning and Shekinna Stricklen. Unfortunately, that group had a rude awakening to postseason play with the upset loss to Ball State. The best thing about freshmen is that they become sophomores. This season, UT will enter the 2010 NCAA Tournament with two rookies -- Taber Spani and Kamiko Williams. WE’LL BE HOSTING NEXT YEAR, TOO After not hosting for five years, the University of Tennessee will be hosting back-to-back NCAA First/Second Rounds in Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville, Tenn., in 2010 and 2011. This year, UT welcomes #16 seed Austin Peay, #8 seed Dayton and #9 seed TCU on March 20 & 22. The Lady Vols have now hosted 24 First/ Second Round games and the Mideast Regionals six times. OVER 100 NCAA TOURNAMENT WINS The Tennessee Lady Vols and coach Pat Summitt reached an incredible milestone in the 2008 NCAA Tournament -- 100 victories. The win over Purdue in the 2008 NCAA Second Round was number 100 for UT. It’s hard to imagine that one-tenth of Summitt’s 1,000 career victories have come in the NCAA tourney. ALL-TIME NCAA TOURNAMENT VICTORIES 1. Tennessee (women) 104 2. Kentucky (men) 100* 3. North Carolina (men) 100 4. UCLA (men) 99* 5. Duke (men) 88 *does not include vacated years WE TURN UP LIKE A HEADS UP PENNY After attending four consecutive Final Fours twice (1995, 1996, 1997,1998 and 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005) and winning three consecutive titles (1996, 1997, 1998), the Lady Vols missed the festivities in 1999, 2001 and 2006. UT did make an appearance at the 2000 NCAA Final Four in Philadelphia, Penn., and lost to the Connecticut Huskies for the title. UT returned to the 2007 Final Four and captured an unprecedented seventh NCAA title and followed that up with an 18th trip to the Final Four and the eighth NCAA Championship in 2008. In 2009, the closest the Lady Vols got to the Final Four was via their cable signal watching on ESPN. NCAA FIRST ROUND NOTES Tennessee has a 21-1 record in First/Opening Round games in the NCAA Tournament dating back to 1982. There were six years where the Lady Vols had a First Round bye (1988-93). Tennessee averages 87.8 ppg in NCAA First Round contests and holds its opponents to just 52.6 ppg or an average win margin of +35.2 ppg. Tennessee scored a then-NCAA record 111 points against North Carolina A&T in the 1994

First Round. AT tallied 37 points to give UT a 74-point winning margin. In 1999, Tennessee tallied 113 points against Appalachian St. for the then-fifth most scored points in an NCAA First or Second round. Before the 71-55 loss to Ball State in 2009, the Lady Vols closest game in the First Round was a five-point win over Iowa in 1986, 73-68. Virginia held UT to just 65 points in 1985. The Lady Vols won the game 65-55. Tennessee’s First/Opening Round opponents through the years have included: Jackson St., South Carolina St., Middle Tennessee State, Virginia, Iowa, Tennessee Tech, North Carolina A&T, Florida A&M, Radford, Grambling, Liberty, Appalachian St., Furman, Austin Peay, Georgia State, Alabama State, Colgate, Western Carolina, Army, Drake, Oral Roberts and Ball Sate. OPENING ROUNDS BIG POINTS The Lady Vols turned in their highest point total ever in the NCAA Tournament scoring 113 versus Appalachian State in First Round action on Mar. 13, 1999. Other century marks include 111 points against North Carolina A&T on Mar.16, 1994, 102 points against Liberty on Mar. 14, 1998 and 102 points versus Army on Mar. 19, 2006 -- all in NCAA opening round play. UT’s 113 points against ASU was the fifth most ever scored in NCAA First/Second Round action. OUTTA KNOXVILLE JUST FIVE TIMES IN MARCH In the 2004 NCAA Tournament, for the first time in postseason play, the Tennessee Lady Vols did not play a post-season play-off game in Knoxville. The Lady Vols started the tournament in Tallahassee that year. In 2009, the Lady Vols were on the road for NCAA play traveling to Bowling Green, Kentucky for the First Round. In 2008, UT traveled to West Lafayette, Ind., and Oklahoma City, Okla. , for Regional play. In 2007, UT traveled to Pittsburgh for the 2007 NCAA First/Second Rounds. In 2006, the Lady Vols traveled to Norfolk for the NCAA First/Second Rounds. Prior to 2004, Tennessee had won 46 consecutive NCAA play-off games at home since 1982 (34-0 in NCAA First/ Second Rounds and 12-0 in six NCAA Mideast Regionals hosted in Knoxville). When you add in the AIAW years, Tennessee won 52 consecutive (since Mar. 15, 1980) post-season AIAW/NCAA games at home. Overall, UT has won 54 out of 55 games in Knoxville since Mar. 10, 1979. UT’s only loss in post-season play at home was a 74-72 AIAW Region II defeat to Old Dominion on Mar. 10, 1979. That year, the winner of the Region II Tournament was given the higher seed in the AIAW Regional Championship Tournament (Sweet 16) while the loser was sent to a tougher regional bracket. As the Region II winner, Old Dominion traveled to Tennessee Tech for the AIAW South Regional while Tennessee earned a trip to the Bronx, N.Y. (Fordham Univ.) for the East Regional. Both ODU and Tennessee advanced to the AIAW “Final Four” in Greensboro, N.C. that year. After playing hostess for so many years in Knoxville, the Lady Vols have started to have its share of games on home courts. In 2007, UT had to defeat host Pittsburgh on its home court to advance to the Dayton Regional. In 2008, UT had to get by Purdue on its home floor to advance to Oklahoma City.

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


2010 NCAA Tournament Game Notes • Tennessee First/Second Rounds • Mar. 20 & 22 UT’S NCAA OT GAMES UT has played in five overtime games in the NCAA Tournament producing a 4-1 record including two overtime wins in the Final Four. UT defeated Southern Cal, 91-90, in the first overtime game in NCAA tourney history. UT advanced to the NCAA’s first Final Four in 1982 in Norfolk, Va., from that overtime affair. The Lady Vols played in the first triple OT in NCAA history when UT defeated Ole Miss, 90-83, in 1983. In UT’s most heartbreaking loss in the program’s history, Virginia defeated UT, 79-75 in OT, for the 1990 NCAA East Regional title in Norfolk, Va., denying the Lady Vols from playing in the 1990 Final Four on its home court. In 1991, UT returned the overtime favor to Virginia and defeated the Cavaliers in the first overtime NCAA title game, 70-67 in New Orleans. Tennessee’s last extra stanza game in the NCAA Tournament came at the 1996 Final Four with a dramatic, 88-83, victory over Connecticut in the Final Four semifinal game. SUMMITT’S NCAA RECORDS Lady Vol coach Pat Summitt has coached in 1,230 basketball games to date producing an incredible 1035-195 (.842) overall record. What’s even more amazing is that she has coached in over 100 NCAA Tournament games --- her record in the NCAAs, 104-20 (.843) in 124 NCAA contests. On the women’s side, Georgia’s Andy Landers trails Summitt in NCAA Tournament appearances with 27 – Summitt has 29. Summitt has coached in 124 NCAA Tournament games –next best is UConn’s Geno Auriemma who has coached in 86 games passing former Louisiana Tech legend Leon Barmore who coached in 75 games. Summitt has collected 104 NCAA wins… UConn’s Geno Auriemma has won 71 games to rank second among active coaches. Comparing Summitt to the men’s side, Dean Smith (UNC) coached in 92 tournament games while Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski has coached in 93 games. Krzyzewski passed Smith recording 69 NCAA wins. Summitt has appeared in all 29 (consecutive) NCAA Tournaments, and is ahead of Smith with 23 consecutive appearances. CHECK OUT TENNESSEE’S NCAA RECORD In the 1980s, Tennessee fashioned a 26-6 (.815) record in eight years of NCAA play highlighted by NCAA titles in 1987 and 1989. The Lady Vols put together a 38-6 (.863) winning record in the NCAA Tournament in the 1990s while winning four NCAA titles in 1991, 1996, 1997 and 1998. Thus far in the 2000’s, the Lady Vols have a 40-8 (.830) record in nine years of NCAA competition for an overall slate of 104-20 over 28 years of play. 18 FOR SUMMITT Over the last several years, Lady Vol coach Pat Summitt has passed legendary John Wooden of UCLA in a number of NCAA Tournament categories. Most significantly, Summitt has passed Wooden for most trips to the Final Four with 18 to Wooden’s dozen. UT IN NCAA TITLE GAMES Tennessee has appeared in 13 NCAA title games (8-5 overall) since 1982 and won eight championships. The Lady Vols have an overall 21-10 record in Final Four play. In the old AIAW days, UT made two title game appearances (1980 and 1981). MOST PARTICIPANTS EVER All-time, a total of 95 Lady Vol team members have participated/played in 18 Final Fours. That ranks first among all schools. Louisiana Tech is second with 65 participants all-time in 10 Final Fours.

NO PRESSURE, BUT EVERY LADY VOL HAS PLAYED IN ONE Every Lady Vol hoopster (since 1976) has played in at least one Final Four during her career at Tennessee. SHE LOVES MARCH AND APRIL, TOO Let’s unite March and April Madness and coin it “Marpril Madness.” Tennessee Lady Vol basketball coach Pat Summitt loves to kick things up a notch in the months of March and April. Summitt, who has now coached in 1,230 collegiate contests and sports a 1,035-195 overall record in 36 seasons, has gone into battle 231 times in the months of March and April. She has come out a winner in 185 games losing just 46 basketball games (.800). Her teams are 60-2 at home, 10-1 away and 11543 at neutral sites in the third and fourth months of the year. ANOTHER 30 WIN SEASON A win over Kentucky on Mar. 7 in the SEC Tournament Championship game was the 30th of the season for UT and tied the third fastest Lady Vol squad to collect at least 30 wins. This mega stat comes on the heels of last year when Tennessee struggled to win just 22 games in the 11 loss season which snapped six consecutive seasons of 30-plus wins (2003-2008). The Lady Vols have reached at least 30 wins in a season under Coach Pat Summitt 19 times in her career.

I’LL TAKE YOUR ORDER, WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE WITH THAT COMBO? Some folks are wondering why Lady Vol Coach Pat Summitt has gone with 13 different line-ups this season. Surely, it’s got to be the most combos she’s ever tried? Well, not exactly Jared. In the 2001-02 season, the last time the Women’s Final Four was held in San Antonio, the Lady Vols rolled into the Texas town and were Alamoed-down by an unbeaten and number one ranked UConn squad in the Final Four semifinals. In that 2002 season, Summitt tinkered with 16 different lineups. This year, she has tried a “tame” 13. But here’s a number that will get you running to your permutation formula megatron super conducting computer. Through 32 games, there have been 141 different five-player combinations on the court for the Lady Vols. The UT player who must be on the court for the Lady Vols to be successful? Sophomore Glory Johnson. When the 6’3” sophomore is on the floor, the Lady Vols are in their most productive scoring mode.

THE LINE-UP CAROUSEL Against #19/18-ranked Kentucky on Mar. 7, Tennessee coach Pat Summitt stayed with her 13th different line-up of the season with sophomore Alyssia Brewer starting 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 32 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 in 32 games.

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%.

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


2010 NCAA Tournament Game Notes • Tennessee First/Second Rounds • Mar. 20 & 22 LYSSI ON A ROLL Sophomore post Alyssia Brewer has stepped up since the loss at Georgia producing 11 of 14 double-figure scoring game (including six consecutive) and is averaging 13.2 ppg and 7.1 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. 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 103 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 145 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 103 in 30 games this season. Currently, she ranks in 2nd place with 152 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. THREESIES Playing an opponent three times during the season usually presents some unique challenges since both teams are so familiar with each other. Over the years, the Lady Vols have faced the same opponent in three games 26 times. UT has managed to sweep or win the series 22 times. Tennessee played Georgia four times in 1983 going 2-2; faced Tennessee Tech four times in 1977 (2-2) and a ridiculous five times in the 1978 season going 5-0 after playing home, away, twice in holiday tournaments and once in the state tournament vs. TTU. 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 5-0 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.

AMAZING SUMMITT NUMBERS •Summitt has faced 160 opponents in 1,230 total games and teams from 35 conferences •47% of her 1,230 total games have been played versus ranked teams (581 total games against ranked opponents) with 423 victories versus ranked opponents •156 all-time Lady Vols have contributed to 1,035 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.

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, 2005-06 and 2008-09 seasons. The 20 all-time losses at TBA have come at the hands of just 10 teams: Virginia (2008), Florida (2006), LSU (2008, 2006), Duke (2009, 2007, 2004), Connecticut (2004, 2002, 2000, 1996), Louisiana Tech (1999, 1989), Georgia (1996, 1991), Texas (2003, 2002, 1987), Stanford (1996) and Auburn (1988). 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 197476; 19 in Stokely Athletics Center from 1976-87; and 20 in Thompson-Boling Arena. 100 POINT GAMES Since 1974, the Lady Vols have gone over the century mark 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, 94-93, 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

2010 NCAA Tournament Game Notes • Tennessee First/Second Rounds • Mar. 20 & 22

2009-10 LADY VOL GAME NOTES ALMANAC was a 79-69 win over Stanford on Dec. 21, 2008, at home.

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 450 points in 32 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 55% (135-244) this year. She has improved upon 194 points in 33 games as a rookie to 318 in one less game as a sophomore. Up and down the line, Kelley Cain, Alicia Manning, Glory Johnson have all shown a dramatic improvement in their stats.

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). 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.

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 450 to date for a career total of 1,112. She became the 34th all-time player to reach the 1,000 point club.

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 31. 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 14 SEC Tournament titles.

IF UT DOESN’T IMPROVE... The Lady Vols were a 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 shot 56.8, 52.7 and 65.3 percent, respectively. In the last month, 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 was just 6.0 per SEC game.

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.

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 422-157 (.725) versus ranked teams. The 2008-09 Lady Vols were a dismal 4-8 versus ranked teams.

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 34.4 percent accuracy from the field. 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

WE GOT THE DARING DOUBLE At the SEC Tournament, the Lady Vols accomplished 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 and 2010. Only three other SEC schools have ever won both titles: Georgia (1983, 1984 and 1986), Auburn (1981 and 1987) and Kentucky (1982). HEY A-TOWN! Lady Vol sophomore Alicia Manning hails from Woodstock, Ga., a town outside of Atlanta and thus the nickname of “A-town.” A-town, a 6’1” guard/forward, has been nothing but downtown in the paint over the last five games averaging 10.0 rpg. She picked off a career high 14 boards in the 2010 SEC Second Round game vs. Ole Miss. In the final regular season game against the Rebels, she gathered in 10 rebounds and one game prior to that she snagged 11 boards against Kentucky. She earned a spot in the regular starting rotation eight games ago and has been one of the most capable producers on the floor. During this stretch, she has averaged 28.1 mpg, scoring 8.6 ppg, grabbing 8.8

rpg. GET OUT THE BROOM This season, the Lady Vols 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 the last week in February, 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. WARLICK IS THIRD LONGEST TENURED UT associate head coach Holly Warlick is the third most-tenured assistant coach in women’s collegiate basketball according to a recent survey. Warlick 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 All-American 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.” SEC TOURNAMENT BULLETS • This marked Tennessee’s 19th time (in 31 tournaments) to earn a spot in the Championship game. The Lady Vols are an amazing 14-5 in

2010 NCAA Tournament Game Notes • Tennessee First/Second Rounds • Mar. 20 & 22

2009-10 LADY VOL GAME NOTES ALMANAC SEC title games. • Prior to winning in 2010, UT’s last SEC Tournament Championship was in 2008 with a 61-55 win over LSU on Mar. 9 in Nashville. The Lady Vols took the momentum from that title to run the table in the NCAA Tournament en route to championship number 8 in Tampa, Fla. • A LITTLE KNOWN STORY... Tennessee’s Pat Head Summitt could very well have coached her 1,000th win at the University of Kentucky 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. • 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, 2010. 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. •Tennessee fell apart down the stretch in the loss at Kentucky last year and coach Pat Summitt had enough of the “take it for granted” attitude of her youngsters. Following that loss, she evicted the team from the locker room. You see, much is made of the Lady Vols palatial locker room in Thompson-Boling Arena. The team lost the right to use the locker room following back-to-back losses last season to #7/10-ranked Duke (Feb. 16, 2009, 62-54) and Kentucky (Feb. 19, 2009, 66-56). Following the Lady Vols win over at #12/17-ranked Virginia on Nov. 22, 2009, Coach Summitt announced in the post game talk to the team that they had earned their locker room back to thunderous cheers from the team. 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. • 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 199192 season when SEC play expanded. • The Lady Vols 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 5,758 in five 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 .462 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. 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. 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

2010 NCAA Tournament Game Notes • Tennessee First/Second Rounds • Mar. 20 & 22

2009-10 LADY VOL GAME NOTES ALMANAC 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 comefrom-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. 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 36year tenure. In her first and second seasons (197475 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.

2010 NCAA Tournament Game Notes • Tennessee First/Second Rounds • Mar. 20 & 22

2009-10 LADY VOL GAME NOTES ALMANAC talized 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. Studentathletes earn the right to wear the VOLScholar patch on their uniform by achieving a 3.0 gradepoint 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 sign-

ing of two student-athletes to National Letters of Intent for the 2010-11 academic school year. Joining the eight-time 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 AllAmerican Team will be announced the week of the “Elite Eight” round during the NCAA Tournament. The 34th annual Wooden Award ceremony, which will include the announcement of the Men’s and Women’s Wooden Award, and the presentation of the Wooden Award All-American Teams and the Legends of Coaching Award, will take place the weekend of April 9-11, 2010. STRICKLEN IS ON THE NAISMITH LIST Lady Vol sophomore Shekinna Stricklen has been named to the Naismith Player of the Year “watch list.” The watch list was compiled by the Atlanta Tipoff Club’s Board of Selectors, which based its criteria on player performances from the previous year and expectations for the 2009-10 college basketball season. The Naismith Trophy presented by AT&T will be awarded at the 2010 NCAA Women’s Final Four in San Antonio, Texas. 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 197677. 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.

2010 NCAA Tournament Game Notes • Tennessee First/Second Rounds • Mar. 20 & 22

2009-10 LADY VOL GAME NOTES ALMANAC 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.

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, 6854), 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 finetuning 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, 9153, in San Antonio and defeated #17 Texas, 7858, 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. Alltime, there have been 15 perfect starts to a season (of at least 7 wins).

...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 46game consecutive winning streak (that was second

2009-10 LADY VOL GAME NOTES ALMANAC only to Louisiana Tech’s NCAA all-time 54-game winning streak). Former assistants Mickie DeMoss and last year Matthew Mitchell turned the trick as a head coaches at Kentucky, (DeMoss 66-63, on Jan. 26, 2006 and Mitchell 66-56 on Feb. 19, 2009), and Sylvia Hatchell managed to pull off the feat twice at North Carolina (75-63 on Mar. 28, 2006 and 7057, Dec. 3, 2006). Former Lady Vol players turned head coaches have been less successful. Former Lady Vol All-America Patricia Roberts tried while head coach at Maine (0-2, lost 77-64 on Dec. 13, 1990 and 86-71 on Nov. 24, 1991). Former Lady Vol Olympian and point guard Lea Henry faced Summitt in the NCAA Tournament with her Georgia State team and lost 98-68 on Mar. 15, 2002. Next to try to knock off Summitt was Kellie Jolly Harper with her Western Carolina team on Mar. 20, 2005. The Lady Catamounts lost 94-43. The most recent former Lady Vol hoopsters to take on their former coach: UT All-American and San Francisco head coach Tanya Haave. “LaMachine’s” Dons fell to UT on Nov. 15, 2008, 68-39. A little over a week later, Harper’s WCU team fell to Summitt’s Lady Vols, 83-56, on Nov. 25, 2008. The next player to try the knock-off - -San Francisco’s Tanya Haave.

RAISING CAIN UT redshirt sophomore center Kelley Cain returned to the starting line-up against Rutgers. Cain suffered a concussion against UCLA on Nov. 28 and was held out of the George Washington game on Dec. 1. Cain was cleared to play against #17-ranked Texas on Dec. 6 and came off the bench to score 12 points (6-6 FG), grab six boards and swat away four shots. She followed that up with a nine point, nine rebound and six blocked shot performance against Rutgers. SOLID SHOWING AGAINST THE HORNS Against #17-ranked Texas, Tennessee used an 8-0 run to build an 11-5 lead (at 14:55) and then put together a 12-0 run over 4:55 to take a 31-18 lead with 5:29 to play in the first half. UT’s largest deficit of the first half was two at 18:23; it’s largest lead was 17 at 0:27. Tennessee led at the half for the fifth time this season. In those games, UT is 5-0. Texas went without a point from the 3:12 mark of the first half to the 16:29 point of the second, allowing Tennessee a 14-0 run to build a 48-24 lead. Tennessee outrebounded Texas 42-41; UT has led on the boards in all seven games NOGGIN KNOCKERS The Lady Vols only had nine players available to play against George Washington on Dec. 1. Tennessee starting sophomore pivot Kelley Cain missed the game with George Washington due to a concussion suffered in the UCLA game after dropping in eight points and grabbing 11 rebounds against the Bruins. Cain also missed some time last season after suffering a concussion in practice. She has started five games this season and averages 8.4 ppg and 8.6 rpg. CALLING ALL POSTS The Lady Vols went into the game with George Washington on Dec. 1 pretty thin in the post. Sidelined were four post players -- 6’1” Amber Gray and 6’3” Faith Dupree for the season; 6’4” Vicki Baugh who is coming back from a torn ACL and 6’6” Kelley Cain who will miss due to a concussion. That left 6’1” rookie Taber Spani and a pair

of 6’3” sophomores in Glory Johnson and Alyssia Brewer to shore up the middle for the Lady Vols. SAPULPA WAS IN THE HOUSE Sophomore post Alyssia Brewer of Sapulpa, Oklahoma, showed up in a big way against George Washington on Dec. 1. UT was without starting center Kelley Cain who was being held out due to a concussion suffered in the UCLA game. The 6’3” Brewer came in the first half at the 14:49 mark and scored four quick layups and a free throw in eight minutes to record nine points in the opening stanza. In the second half, she was inserted at the 14:13 mark and played the rest of the game totaling 14 second stanza points for a career high 23 points (11-15 FG) to go along with seven rebounds. DUPREE DEALS WITH BACK PROBLEMS University of Tennessee Lady Vol Head Basketball Coach Pat Summitt announced on Nov. 23, 2009, that freshman center Faith Dupree will be sidelined this season. “Faith has been experiencing recurrent lower back pain,” explained Summitt. “Our medical staff (Director of Sports Medicine Jenny Moshak, team orthopaedist Dr. Greg Mathien and team physician Dr. Becky Morgan) felt that the best course of action was to spend this season treating her. “We are disappointed for Faith and what she means to our team,” said Summitt. “She worked really hard in the preseason drills and conditioning but now she needs time to focus on getting her back healthy.” Moshak, University of Tennessee Associate Athletics Director for Sports Medicine, has been treating Dupree for back pain for several weeks. “We are going to use this year to explore treatment options and provide aggressive rehabilitation,” said Moshak. Dupree, a 6-3 freshman from Knoxville, Tenn., appeared in the first two games of the season. Against #7/4-ranked Baylor she logged four minutes and grabbed a rebound. In San Antonio at the ESPNU Road to the Championship, she played 18 minutes and tossed in five points, grabbed six rebounds and had three assists in 18 minutes against Texas Tech. Tennessee’s roster now drops to 11 active players for the 2009-10 season. Also sitting out this year, following both shoulder and brain surgery, is 6-1 sophomore forward Amber Gray of West Chester, Ohio. HOME SWEET HOME Much is made of the Lady Vols palatial locker room in Thompson-Boling Arena. The team lost the right to use the locker room following backto-back losses last season to #7/10-ranked Duke (Feb. 16, 62-54) and Kentucky (Feb. 19, 66-56). Following the Lady Vols win over at #12/17-ranked Virginia on Nov. 22, 2009, Coach Pat Summitt announced in the post game talk to the team that they had earned their locker room back to thunderous cheers from the team. 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 2009-10 season was Lady Vol Coach Pat Summitt’s 600th victory over a non-conference team. She is now 604-129 versus non-conference opposition over 36 seasons. 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 6964 decision to Louisiana Tech on Nov. 14, 1999 in Thompson-Boling Arena. Until the loss to the Lady Techsters in 1999, the Lady Vols had won 18 consecutive season openers. ALWAYS A HOT TICKET Joe Arnone, UT Associate AD for Ticket Operations, says Lady Vol season ticket sales have been steady despite the disappointment of the 2008-09 season. As of Nov. 11th, 10,011 season tickets had been sold. Last season, over 10,400 season tickets were sold.

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.

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.

GAME 29: OLE MISS The Tennessee Lady Volunteers finished the 200910 regular season by putting the final touches on the first undefeated home regular season since 2002-03. A 75-63 win over the Rebels extended UT’s home winning streak to 17 games and made it 19 games since Ole Miss last downed the Lady Vols. Tennessee raced out to a 10-2 start over the first 3:01 of the contest and the Lady Vols built a 31-18 lead with 6:04 to play in the first half. The Rebels battled back within five, 3631, 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. Ole Miss’ Bianca Thomas scored the Rebels next 12 points and moved UM 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. The Rebels were led by Thomas, a Henderson, Tenn., native, who torched the Lady Vols for 34 points, the most by an individual against UT this year. Tennessee was led by a pair of sophomores. Shekinna Stricklen scored a team-high 23 points and grabbed a gamehigh 10 rebounds for her fourth double-double of the season and the sixth of her career. Alicia Manning scored a careerbest 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. Tennessee won the battle of the boards, 49-40, for the 27th time and outscored Ole Miss 34-22 in the paint.

GAME 30: OLE MISS The Tennessee Lady Volunteers began their quest for a 14th Southeastern Conference Tournament title with the Ole Miss Rebels, the last team they finished off for their 15th regular season SEC crown. The Lady Vols got off to a quick start and raced away from the Rebels for a 76-51 win in the second round of the SEC Tournament. The Rebels got on the board first with a three-pointer from Bianca Thomas just 17 seconds into the contest. That was the last Ole Miss field goal until the 16:52 mark, during which time UT went on a 10-3 run. After the Lady Vols built a 17-8 lead just over four minutes into the game, the Rebels went on a 7-0 streak to pull within 17-15 at the 11:55 point. From there, the Lady Vols went on a 21-2 run over the next 7:05 to open a 38-17 lead. Tennessee would go into the halftime break with a 50-25 lead, having forced nine Rebel turnovers, scoring 17 points off of Ole Miss miscues. The Lady Vols would shoot just 37 percent in the second half, but the UT defense held Ole Miss to 28.6 percent and the squads were equal through the final 20 minutes, and the Lady Vols claimed the victory. Tennessee was led by sophomores Alyssia Brewer and Alicia Manning. Brewer scored a game-high 21 points on 9-of-11 shooting. The Sapulpa, Okla., native added six rebounds and two blocks in 28 minutes. Manning tallied her second career double-double with 14 points and a careerhigh 14 rebounds. The Woodstock, Ga., native tallied her first career double-double in the regular-season finale against the Rebels just five days earlier. Junior Angie Bjorklund was in double figures with 16 points and dished out a game-high five assists. Sophomore Shekinna Stricklen tossed in 10 points and five rebounds. Tennessee outscored Ole Miss 40-26 in the paint, 20-6 off of turnovers and 26-3 in second chance points.

GAME 31: VANDERBILT The Tennessee Lady Volunteers have faced the Vanderbilt Commodores three times in a season eight previous times and entered the SEC Semifinals with a 22-2 mark in those games. Tennessee was able to finish off the Commodores, 68-49, and improve to 25-2 when facing VU three times in a season. After falling behind 10-4 not even four minutes into the contest, the Lady Vols put together a 13-2 run to the 9:29 mark of the first half and built a 17-12 lead. The Lady Vols would go into the break with a 31-22 lead after forcing nine Commodore turnovers and turning them into 12 points. Vanderbilt cut the Tennessee lead to 45-36 at the 9:16 mark of the second half on a Merideth Marsh three-pointer, the first time VU had been within single digits of the Lady Vols since it was 31-22 at the half. From that point, Tennessee went on an 11-0 run to build a 56-36 lead with just 4:47 to play in the contest. After allowing Vanderbilt to shoot 40.9 percent from the field in the first 20 minutes, the Lady Vol defense stepped up and limited the Commodores to just 26.8 percent shooting in the second half. In the previous two games against VU this season, the Commodores were able to hurt the Lady Vols from beyond the arc, but the UT defense held Vanderbilt to a meager 17.6 percent, just 3-of-17, shooting. Tennessee was led by sophomore post Alyssia Brewer who tallied a game-high 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting and tied for game-high honors by hauling in seven rebounds. Junior guard Angie Bjorklund was the only other Lady Vol to post double digits. The Spokane Valley, Wash., native converted four three-pointers to finish with 12 points. Sophomore Alicia Manning finished with six points, five rebounds and four assists, while classmate Shekinna Stricklen pitched in nine points, seven assists and four rebounds.

GAME 32: #19/18 KENTUCKY The Tennessee Lady Volunteers attempted to become the first Southeastern Conference team to pull off the “doubledouble” of the regular-season league crown and tournament title since the Lady Vols accomplished the feat in 2000. Tennessee was able to down No. 2 seed and #19/18ranked Kentucky, 70-62, and earned the Lady Vols 14th SEC Tournament title. Sophomore Alyssia Brewer was named SEC Tournament MVP, while classmates Alicia Manning and Shekinna Stricklen were named to the all-tournament team. Against the Wildcats, Brewer finished with eight points, four rebounds and two blocks in the post. Manning continued to dominate the glass and tied for game-high honors with 11 rebounds, to go with six points and four assists. Stricklen led the Lady Vols with 20 points and added nine boards, three assists and three steals. Sophomore Glory Johnson equaled Manning with 11 rebounds and pitched in seven points. Freshman Kamiko Williams stepped up big, especially in the first half, and finished with eight points, four rebounds, three assists and two steals off the bench. Tennessee opened the game hot at both ends and built a 19-9 lead nearly midway through the first frame. After the UT offense went cold and UK tied the game at 25, Williams came in and made the next four Lady Vol buckets, keeping Tennessee within striking distance and helping UT take a 3529 halftime lead. After UK tied the game at 50 with 10:03 to play, UT ran off seven straight points over the next three minutes to take a 57-50 lead. The Wildcats would get within five with 1:09 remaining and the Lady Vols made 4-of-6 free throws down the stretch to ice the game. Tennessee outrebounded UK, 51-32 and outscored the Wildcats 44-30 in the paint.


2010 NCAA Tournament Game Notes • Tennessee First/Second Rounds • Mar. 20 & 22

THE GRAND DAME SUMMITT’S MILESTONE VICTORIES January 10, 1975 – In Knoxville, Tenn., Pat Head, the 22-year old University of Tennessee Lady Vol head coach, records her first collegiate win over Middle Tennessee State, 69-32, in UT’s Alumni Gym. Fifty-three spectators were on hand. January 13, 1979 – Coach Head hits the century mark in the Lady Vols’ third-ever win over the North Carolina St. Wolfpack, 79-66, at Reynolds Coliseum. To record her first 100 wins, it took Head’s Lady Vols three years and 362 days to hit the century mark. December 3, 1982 – The Lady Vols deliver win number 200 to Coach Head at Detroit’s Coca-Cola Classic. UT turns away a stubborn St. John’s squad, 69-56, for the victory. Wins 100-200 took three years and 324 days to accomplish. January 4, 1987 – It was hard to believe that five years (and 32 days) would elapse before Coach Pat Summitt would claim 100 more wins. Victory 300 came over North Carolina, 8768, in front of the home folks. Nineteen wins after number 300 over UNC, Summitt’s Lady Vols claimed UT’s first NCAA title. January 25, 1990 – Tennessee barely squeaked out win number 400 in Columbia, S.C., defeating the Lady Gamecocks, 70-69. Wins 300-400 came quickly (three years and 21 days) and were wrapped around NCAA Championships in 1987 and 1989. November 21, 1993 – Pat Summitt’s 500th victory came against a former assistant coach who had helped UT’s mentor to 180 wins from 1978-85-- Nancy Darsch. Ohio State was no match for UT in the Inaugural State Farm Hall of Fame game, 80-45, in Jackson, Tenn. Victories 400-500 were accomplished in three years and 300 days November 23, 1996 – Four victories into the 1996-97 season, Summitt’s defending NCAA Champs defeated Marquette, 83-68, in the Howard Bank Classic in Burlington, Vermont. The governor of the state of Vermont, Howard Dean, was on hand to surprise the coach with a cake commemorating her 600th win. Summitt’s teams from 1993-96 fast-tracked the coach with the quickest 100 wins in her career, three years and two days. She was the fastest women’s coach to reach 600 wins – just 734 games. December 5, 1999 – Pat Summitt reached the magical 700-win plateau at the University of Wisconsin with an 85-62 conquest of the Badgers. She joined Texas’ Jody Conradt as the only women to notch the milestone. Her ascent to 700 wins was also the fastest in women’s collegiate basketball. This set of 100 wins was knocked out in three years and 12 days along with three more NCAA titles. January 14, 2003 – An anxious throng at Thompson-Boling Arena anticipated win #800 as the Lady Vols jump out quickly against #25/24 ranked DePaul en route to a 76-57 victory. As the last seconds ticked down, the crowd chanted, “800, 800, 800!” The post game activities featured a giant “8-0-0” cake, balloons, flowers, fireworks and the presentation of the game ball. The latest set of 100 wins took three years and 38 days. March 22, 2005 – An electric atmosphere welcomed Tennessee and Purdue to the court for the NCAA Second Round game in Knoxville, Tenn. At stake was a win to advance in the tournament and a victory that would put coach Pat Summitt number one on the list of NCAA all-time winningest basketball coaches. With a 75-54 triumph over the Boilermakers, Summitt etched her name in the history books with her 880th victory. To commemorate her achievement, the University of Tennessee named its basketball court, “The Summitt,” in a surprise ceremony. January 19, 2006 – If you had to be away from your home arena for such a monumental milestone win, it was fortunate for Coach Pat Summitt and the Lady Vols that the majority of the 13,127 fans in attendance at Memorial Gym in Nashville were bedecked in Orange and White for #900. Number one-ranked Tennessee remained perfect on the year at 18-0 as they knocked off #19-ranked Vanderbilt, 80-68, in a dramatic come-from-behind victory on Jan. 19, 2006. It was “W” number 900 for Summitt –a magical and uncharted victory plateau. It was the second quickest 100 wins in her career, just three years and five days. For this win, Hazel Head, Summitt’s mother, sat on the Tennessee bench during the game. February 5, 2009 - 12,445 days after she registered her first victory as a 22-year old coach at Tennessee, Lady Vol skipper Pat Head Summitt collected her incredible 1,000th career coaching victory. In her first attempt to reach 1,000 wins, Summitt’s Lady Vols were thwarted by #2-ranked Oklahoma, 80-70, on Feb . 2 in OKC. This time there was nothing to deny UT the win as the Lady Vols registered their best performance of the year with a 73-43 victory over Georgia on Feb. 5, 2009. Summitt achieved the mark over a coach who has registered the most wins over the Lady Vol program all-time in Andy Landers of Georgia (14 wins). She started the year needing 17 victories to reach 1,000. Traditionally, Tennessee has reached 17 wins in 20.5 games each season (on average). The latest set of 100 wins took three years and 17 days.

THE GRAND DAME

SUMMING IT UP... THE ROAD TO 1,000 WINS PLUS To celebrate the 1,000 win milestone on Feb. 5, 2009, Coach Pat Summitt was surprised with the following: a $200,000 bonus for 1,000 career wins; a roast and toast event in May 2009-- “A Day of 1,000 Stories.” It was an event celebrating all of the Lady Vol basketball players and coaches who helped make the 1,000 victories possible; a star on the Knoxville River Walk; a commemorative plaque from the SEC; the game ball; an original Robert Tino painting celebrating the 1,000 win accomplishment and a little BLING -- a one-of-a-kind bracelet and matching necklace commemorating her 1000th victory. • After setting up the chairs, getting out the clock and sweeping the floors at the 3,000 seat Alumni Memorial Gym with UT custodian Doug Pease, Pat Head (Summitt) lost the very first game of her career to Mercer, 84-83 on Dec. 7, 1974. • Her first win came almost a month after her first loss. The team went home for the Christmas holidays and in the first game of the new year, the Lady Vols defeated Middle Tennessee State, 69-32, to notch her first win on Jan. 10, 1975. • In 1976, the women were invited to play in Stokely Athletics Center (12,000 capacity) for the first time on Nov. 13. In the first game on the tartan court, her team defeated Kentucky, 107-53, as first Lady Vol AllAmerican Patricia Roberts broke the Fieldhouse record with 51 points. Current Lady Vol associate head coach Holly Warlick was the starting rookie point guard on that team. • When the University of Tennessee’s mammoth Thompson-Boling Arena was finished, there was some debate if the women would rather stay in Stokely Athletics Center or make the move to the new 25,000 seat arena. Urged on by then men’s athletics director Doug Dickey, the women also made the move to the Arena. The playing floor in the facility now bears Summitt’s name. • Over 36 years, Summitt has brought 156 women into the program (including this year’s team) . Of that total group, 111 have graduated, two discontinued playing due to medical reasons (knees), 23 transferred, and six quit. • Summitt has always said, “You win with players.” Summitt’s all-time Lady Vols represent 31 states led by 66 players from the state of Tennessee... 20 from Georgia... six each from Indiana and Ohio... five from Michigan... four each from California, Florida, Kentucky, Texas and Virginia... three from Alabama, New York, South Carolina and West Virginia... two from Illinois, North Carolina and Pennsylvania and one each from the states of Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Oregon, Washington and Wisconsin. (bold states indicate players on the 2009-10 team) • Summitt has also been fond of saying, “Surround yourself with great people.” During her 36-year coaching tenure at the University of Tennessee she has worked with 156 Lady Vol basketball student-athletes and been assisted throughout the years by a total of 41 coaching staffers (assistant coaches, graduate assistants and operations directors), 59 student managers, 3 head athletic trainers, 2 women’s athletics directors, 1 media relations director and 1 secretary. • Over 46 percent of ALL games coached by Summitt have come against Associated Press ranked opponents with the Lady Vols producing a 423-158 record and a 72 percent winning percentage. Imagine facing a ranked opponent in practically every other game in your career. Summitt has faced this challenge for 36 years, night-in and night-out. Additionally, 95 percent of the time she has faced an unranked opponent, Summitt’s teams have won 612 games and lost just 37 contests. • Never had a losing season • 34 consecutive seasons with at least 20 wins and 19 seasons with more than 30 wins • For the last 10 years, Coach Summitt has averaged 31.7 wins and only 4.4 losses per season • Her fastest 100-win total occurred between victories No. 500 and No. 600, which she achieved in only three years and two days. Her toughest set of 100 wins? Victories 200-300 took four years and 32 days to collect. • In a poll conducted on coaches’ ages and victories, Summitt was found to be the youngest coach in the nation to reach 300 victories (34 years old), 400 victories (37 years old), 500 wins (41 years old), 600 victories (44 years old), 700 wins (47 years old), 800 victories (50 years old), 900 wins (53 years old) and 1,000 wins. She is currently 57 years old. • On her first try, she picked up her 900th collegiate coaching win on Jan. 19, 2006, with a come-from-behind victory over #19-ranked Vanderbilt, 80-68, in Nashville, Tenn. She also collected wins #100, 400, 700 and 800 on the first attempt. • 58 players have at least one NCAA championship ring • Best record in NCAA Tournament (men or women) 104-20 (incredible19 NCAA Tournament #1 seeds) • 27 consecutive appearances in the NCAA Sweet 16; 1982-2008 • 29 Southeastern Conference titles -- (14) Tournament and (15) regular season championships • 12 consecutive seasons with over 200,000 in HOME attendance • In 1,230 games, Summitt has been whistled for just 19 technical fouls by 11 different officials

1,000 WINS IN THE RECORD BOOKS -- WHO IS CHASING SUMMITT? Pat Summitt stands with dear friend and newly retired Don Meyer (923-324, .749; Northern State, NCAA Div. II), Herb Magee (907-353, .718; still active at Philadelphia Univ., NCAA Div. II)*, retired Bob Knight (902317, .706) of Texas Tech, and Jody Conradt (900-307, .746) of Texas, on the 900-victory plateau among all NCAA coaches*.

2010 NCAA Tournament Game Notes • Tennessee First/Second Rounds • Mar. 20 & 22, 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 Opponent #7/4 Baylor Texas Tech #12/17 Virginia Middle Tennessee UCLA George Washington #17/17 Texas Rutgers Louisville #2/2 Stanford San Francisco Old Dominion #14/15 Oklahoma South Carolina

TENNESSEE LADY VOL POST-SELECTION SHOW QUOTES HEAD COACH PAT SUMMITT (On the current state of her team): “I think we really have a lot of confidence. I think we’re very invested. I think this team took ownership a long time ago and they’re holding on to it. If I have an issue, I’ll just walk over to (junior guard) Angie Bjorklund and tell her to take care of it or I’ll talk to Kelley Cain and say, ‘you need to make sure that everything’s in check,’ and I think their leadership has put us in this position.” (On this year’s tournament): “I’m just excited for our basketball team, our program and our fans. We’ve got the greatest fans in the game and I want them to come out and really support us. Certainly, this team has kept everybody in check and they’ve worked hard. They’re getting in extra shots outside of practice. I think that’s why our shooting percentage has gone up so much.” (On the importance of playing the first two rounds at home): “I think being at home in your comfort zone and sleeping in our own beds is a real plus for us because we are still a young team. I think getting that situation is really good for a young team and we’re predominantly sophomores.” (On how close her team is to being a championship-level team): “I think we’re very close. If our practices are any indication, this group is really focused. I feel that from them in practice. We’ve only had a couple of players who I didn’t feel that from. One of them was Glory Johnson. I met with her today and we had a heart-to-heart. She’s got to play for us and so does Kamiko Williams. Those are two of our best athletes. If those two athletes invest in this team, it’s going to be a hard team to beat.”

SOPHOMORE FORWARD GLORY JOHNSON (On what it means to earn a No. 1 seed): “I’m excited about just playing in general. It doesn’t matter who we play because we have to bring the same effort no matter what team we play against.” (On getting a chance to atone for last season): “We kind of showed everybody a new side of us. We just have to continue doing what we’re doing and play the way we’ve been playing so that people don’t underestimate us anymore.” (On the importance of playing the first two rounds at home): “I love playing in Knoxville. The fans and the support that we’ll have here in Knoxville while we play will help so much. Being in my hometown will be great.” FRESHMAN GUARD KAMIKO WILLIAMS (On her first NCAA Tournament game): “I’m very excited. I’m glad that it’s a home game so it won’t be as nerve-wracking as it would be somewhere else. I’m real anxious but when game time comes, you’ve got to bring it. It’s really counting now.” (On how the intensity level changes in the postseason): “Coach has been pushing us and trying to get the best out of us, telling us that we need to play to a higher level. She has been stressing to Glory and me that she needs us out there and we took that to heart. Our teammates have been helping us and when we bring energy out there, it picks them up. We’ve been feeding off each other and there hasn’t been any negativity.”


JUNIOR GUARD ANGIE BJORKLUND (On the possibility of playing the first four games of the tournament in the state of Tennessee): “We learned last year that we focus on one game at a time. I’m so excited to be playing at home, everything is going to be familiar for us. If we get there (Memphis) it’s going to be great playing there, in Tennessee. Anywhere we go the fan support is going to be incredible; that’s one of the reasons I came to Tennessee, it’s the best in the country.” (On how prepared the team in heading into the NCAA Tournament): “Just having the couple of years of experience and the underclassmen getting the year of experience, we’ve been preparing ourselves since postseason last year. Everybody is ready and excited and really prepared for this. Every single person on our team has put a lot of time and energy in and I think it’s made a lot of difference.” SOPHOMORE GUARD/FORWARD ALICIA MANNING (On the mindset on the team going into the Tournament): “Our overall attitude going into the tournament is completely different. We know this year we can’t take any team for granted and that we have to come prepared every game to play hard and put everything we have on the floor.” (On the difference between 2009 and 2010): “My investment and my commitment have changed. I’ve been getting in the gym more working on my game and I think it’s paid off. Coming off of last season we spent the entire month after Ball State doing some soul searching. We had to figure out what we had to do and where we had to be for this season. We had to work hard every day, the whole team had to put in time and work on getting better every day.” SOPHOMORE GUARD SHEKINNA STRICKLEN (On becoming more of a leader this season): “Coach (Pat Summitt) has been on me about turning my volume up, stepping up and being a leader. I feel like I have stepped up to the challenge. Going into the NCAA Tournament, I’m really going to have to be a leader, control the point guard spot and take care of the ball. I’m going to have to make sure we’re all together.” (On Tennessee earning a No.1 seed): “It means a lot to us – especially after last year. We have worked hard and improved a lot. This season, we’ve played well and really earned that No. 1 spot. It feels great. Usually Tennessee is at a No. 1 seed every year. I feel like we are back to the way Tennessee is supposed to be. It just makes us all feel good. We’re all really excited and confident, and we’re ready for the tournament to get going.” SOPHOMORE POST ALYSSIA BREWER (On what it means to earn a No. 1 seed after receiving a five-seed last season): “For one, we’re a lot better than we were last year – so that makes a big difference. Also, we’re a whole different team than we were last year. We’ve been through some ups and downs. Last year there were more downs than ups, but I think we’ve gotten stronger as a team this year.” (On how winning the SEC Tournament prepares the team for the NCAAs): “I think it prepared us really well because we saw the kind of mentality we needed to be able to pull out three games in a row. We did a good job of that.” (On the NCAA Tournament field as a whole): “It’s the tournament – you don’t know what’s going to happen. I was glad to see so many SEC teams made the tournament. Our out-of-conference schedule ranges from East Coast to West Coast. We play everywhere. I was expecting some of the teams we played out-of-conference to be in it.” FRESHMAN TABER SPANI (On playing in the first NCAA Tournament of her career): “It’s really exciting. I’m really excited about this team. We’re focused. As freshmen, we’ve watched it growing up for so many years, and now it’s special. Now I’m sitting in a circle with this team. Getting the No. 1 seed and seeing the bracket is a dream come true. We’re really looking forward to Saturday.”

GOT 15TH SEC TITLE – AND SEC TOURNEY CROWN #14 UT completed the “daring double” by tacking on the 2010 SEC Tournament title to go along with the regular season crown by defeating Kentucky in the SEC Tourney finals, 70-62. There have now been six times when UT won the regular season SEC title and went on to win the tournament championship: 1994, 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2010. 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 regular season record to 15 wins. A new program highwater mark due to the revised 16-game SEC schedule. AWARD WINNING PLAY The entire Lady Vol basketball team made a variety of contributions in the three-day march to the 2010 SEC Tournament Championship in Duluth, Ga., culminating with a title victory over #19/18-ranked Kentucky, 70-62. The SEC Tournament MVP went to sophomore post Alyssia Brewer who led the Lady Vols averaging 14.7 ppg, 5.7 rpg, 2.0 bpg while shooting 70.4% from the field. She was joined by fellow sophomores Alicia Manning and Shekinna Stricklen on the All-Tournament Team. Manning crashed the boards to an average of 10 rebounds per game while adding 8.7 ppg and 3.7 apg. Stricklen averaged 13.3 ppg, 6.0 rpg and 3.7 apg. What a difference a year made for the emergence of Brewer and Manning while Stricklen was returning as the USBWA 2009 Freshman of the Year! BETTER THAN THE 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 an “accountability session“ in the locker room and called each other out in the loss. It seems to have helped. UT then marched through the NCAAs to title number seven in Cleveland, Ohio.

2010 NCAA Tournament Game Notes • Tennessee First/Second Rounds • Mar. 20 & 22

LADY VOLS SUCCESS IN THE SEC TOURNAMENT DARING DOUBLES At the 2010 SEC Tournament, the Lady Vols accomplished something they haven’t done in 10 years, win the “daring double” of the SEC regular season and SEC Tournament titles. Before 2010, the last time UT accomplished the double was in the 1999-2000 season. UT has now won its seventh all-time D-D. Other years when the Lady Vols won dual crowns were 1980, 1985, 1994, 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2010. Only three other SEC schools have ever won both titles: Georgia (1983, 1984 and 1986), Auburn (1981 and 1987) and Kentucky (1982). IN OUR HALF OF THE 2010 SEC BRACKET In Tennessee’s half of the 2010 SEC Tournament bracket was #4 seed LSU, #5 seed Vanderbilt, #8 seed South Carolina, #9 seed Ole Miss and #12 seed Arkansas. Tennessee posted a perfect 11-0 mark against these squads. The Lady Vols were 7-1 in contests with the teams from the other half of the bracket. vs. #4-seed LSU 1-24-10 in Baton Rouge, #3/3 UT def. #18/19 LSU 55-43 2-22-10 in Knoxville, #4/5 UT def. #20/rv LSU 70-61 vs. #5-seed Vanderbilt 1-17-10 in Knoxville, #4/4 UT def. #rv/22 VU, 64-57 2-8-10 in Nashville, #5/5 UT def. #rv/22 VU, 69-60 3-6-10 in Duluth, Ga., #4/4 UT def.

ARK, 74-57 31 SEC APPEARANCES The Tennessee Lady Vols’ 2010 appearance in the SEC Tournament was the school’s 31st time to the mini-Final Four. This season marked the 29th time that UT 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 and NCAA 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 63-17 (.787) record which breaks down this way: vs. Alabama (9-2), vs. Auburn (9-4), vs. Florida (7-0), vs. Georgia (8-3), vs. Kentucky (4-1), vs. LSU (7-4), vs. Ole Miss (5-1), vs. Miss St. (4-0), vs. South Carolina (2-0), and vs. Vanderbilt (8-2). The Lady Vols have never faced Arkansas. (The SEC Office record indicates that UT is 62-17 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 80 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 41 and Georgia stands third with 40 wins all-time. 19 TIMES IN THE FINALS The Championship game against Kentucky in the 2010 SEC Tournament marked the Lady Vols 19th incredible trip to the final round of the nation’s toughest conference tournament. UT is 14-5 in alltime 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 2010, 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). 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 UT associate head coach Mickie DeMoss. OUR SEC OVERTIME GAMES In 31 years and 79 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)


2010 NCAA Tournament Game Notes • Tennessee First/Second Rounds • Mar. 20 & 22 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 2 in a row, 2-19-09 LSU 2 in a row, since 2-26-09 Mississippi 19 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 4 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.

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.
