Cross-State Rivals

UT-VU Tidbits  UT coach Pat Summitt has won 21 of 23 games over Vanderbilt while Melanie Balcomb has been the Commodore head coach over the last 10 years. Threesies with the Commodores  Tennessee has faced Vanderbilt three times in a season nine times and posted a 25-2 mark in those games.  The 2009-10 season was such the case with three meetings as UT prevailed in the semifinals of the SEC Tournament in Duluth, Ga., 68-49, on Mar. 6; held on to defeat Vandy in Nashville, 69-60, on Feb. 8, 2010, and prevailed in Knoxville, 64-57, on Jan. 17, 2010.

Facing Vanderbilt

The Series// UT vs. VU  Tennessee and Vanderbilt have a storied past.  This will mark the 68th meeting between these SEC foes. No other team has recorded as many back-toback games with the Lady Vols in single seasons since UT played Old Dominion home-and-home and in the postseason (practically every year) in the late 1970s and early 80s.  The Lady Vols possess a dominant 59-8 advantage in the overall series. Closing in on 70 All-Time Meetings  Vanderbilt became the first opponent to face UT more than 50 times and then 60 times in a series and the first opponent the Lady Vols have defeated

50 times in a series all-time. UT-Vandy Series Rankings  Typically, going into the Tennessee versus Vanderbilt match-up, the Lady Vols have entered the contest as the higher ranked team.  In fact, in the last 47 meetings dating back to Jan. 30, 1993, the Commodores have been ranked higher just six times.  Going into that memorable oversold game on the Nashville campus in 1993, Vanderbilt was ranked number one while the Lady Vols were a step behind at #2. Always a Tough Ticket  Tennessee and Vanderbilt love to attract the crowds on their campuses when the two teams meet.  In UT’s final home game of 2007, with the old Thompson-Boling Arena configuration, UT and Vandy attracted the largest crowd ever in the series as 24,251 clicked thru the turnstiles on Senior Day.  Vanderbilt attracted the largest crowd to Thompson-Boling Arena last season, 17,853, and the second largest crowd this season, 17,879.  Attendance averages dating back to 1986-87 season. KNOXVILLE TOTAL (AVG.) --22 games – 352,665 (16,030); NASHVILLE TOTAL (AVG)--24 games –272,024 (11,334); NEUTRAL TOTAL (AVG)-10 games- 79,213 ( 7,921). Largest gatherings: 24,251 in Knoxville 2/23/07, and 15,317 in Nashville 1/30/93. Vanderbilt’s Success in Nashville  Six of Vandy’s wins in the series have come at Memorial Gymnasium on the Nashville campus, while two of the Commodores eight victories over UT have come on neutral courts in the SEC Tourney.  The closest Vanderbilt has come to claiming a win in Knoxville in 27 meetings was a two-point loss on Feb. 26, 1984, 74-72, in old Stokely Athletics Center on the UT campus.  In Thompson-Boling Arena, the ‘Dores have walked a trey away from victory twice -- in 1996, 85-82 (119-96) and in 2006, 70-67 (2-12-06).  SEC neutral court wins for the Commodores -- in 2001, #15 Vandy upset #1 UT in the SEC Tournament in Memphis, 77-74, while Jim Foster was the Commodore head coach. In 1995, #9/11-ranked VU knocked #2-ranked UT out of the SEC’s in Chattanooga, 67-61. Balcomb has won Three  VU head coach Melanie Balcomb has claimed three all-time wins over Tennessee.  She is 2-21 vs. the Lady Vols while at Vandy since the 2002-03 season after picking up her first SEC win over the Lady Vols in Nashville on Jan. 11, 2009.  Previously, as the head coach at Xavier, her Musketeers sent UT home from the 2001 NCAA Tourney dealing a Sweet 16 upset defeat, 80-65.

Tennessee at Vanderbilt Postgame Quotes HEAD COACH Pat Summitt (On Tennessee's loss) "Obviously, we are very disappointed and rightfully so. I didn't think we brought the energy early on. We didn't sustain runs and we didn't have a whole lot of runs to sustain. It's really just a big disappointment." (On Tennessee's loss) "It absolutely wasn't there. They let us down. As coaches, we're not happy and they're not happy or at least they better not be happy. We have more basketball to play. This one hurts. It really does." (On Vanderbilt outrebounding Tennessee) "We saw a lot of lack of effort on the court tonight. You have to give Vanderbilt all the credit. They came ready to play Melanie Balcomb does a great job. We just have to go back and figure out ways we can improve. We have a lot to improve on." ASSISTANT COACH Mickie DeMoss (On giving up 93 points) "You have to give Vanderbilt a lot of credit. They're a very good offensive team. They execute extremely well. Still, to give up 93 points is very disappointing for our defense." (On Tennessee's interior defense) "I don't know if it surprised me. I've seen some other post players manhandle our post in there. They just kept getting deep berries. They had us pinned up under the rim and they were just turning and shooting a layup on us. For whatever reason, we're going to have to get a little tougher on our interior defense." GUARD Meighan Simmons (On the loss to Vanderbilt) "It's tough. We talk about it in the locker room (how) we come out in the first half and we don't start off strong and play behind the entire game. When we put ourselves in a position like that, we lose focus. We can't lose our focus from here on out. We have to keep our focus throughout the entire game." (On the Lady Vols' defense) "To be honest, I don't even know where it was tonight. We just weren't disciplined enough to play defense. We played defense against Auburn, we have to bring that intensity each and every night. We can't bring it one game and then not bring it at all in the next." (On defending the Vanderbilt offense) "Once we got their outside shutdown, we had to focus on both (inside and outside). We know if one doesn't work (of them) they are going to switch it up. Tonight they really did and we didn't respond. We couldn't score and we just let (Christina Foggie) have her game, she played an awesome game and I give her credit. I give Vanderbilt credit they are a major team and they showed they wanted more than we did. We can't show that anymore." (On Kentucky Game On Monday) "Personally, we have to get back in the gym and get better. From here on out we have to focus and learn from this game and make sure we get ready to play against Kentucky. We just have to come out ready. This game is history."

Mississippi State Quotes HEAD COACH Pat Summitt (On Tennessee defensive and rebounding play) "I thought it was a very good sign for us. I thought they were very focused on the boards and on our defense. Things weren't going our way all the time, but I thought we buckled down and did what we had to do." (On Glory Johnson and Shekinna Stricklen) "I thought Glory (Johnson) and (Shekinna) Stricklen did a good job on the boards. We needed that. If you can control the boards, you have a great influence on controlling the game." (On whether Tennessee rushed shots early on) "Definitely at the start of the game. We were all over the place. Once we settled down, they did a much better job." (On Vicki Baugh) "I think her playing in the post she has a great presence and she's good around the glass. I think it's where she's best suited as opposed to being at on top of the floor." ASSISTANT COACH Mickie DeMoss (On the defense in the first half) "It did (help us). We started in a zone again and I felt we covered their shooters and their scorers pretty well and held them to 13 points in the first half. Then our bench play was key for us tonight. We couldn't make shots. Our starters were struggling to make shots. We went to the bench pretty early and Kamiko Williams came in and was a spark on the offensive end. They Cierra Burdick came in and knocked down some big shots. So I think our bench really came through for us, bigtime." (On playing a lot of zone defense) "We did what we needed to do. There were some gaps in it. (Mississippi State) penetrated on us a little bit and got in the gaps a few times. All in all, it was pretty solid and that's a good thing .A lot of people have zoned them this year, so I knew they would have more options against the zone. All in all, we went to some man (defense) in the second half to change up to cover their shooters a little bit better. I thought our zone was pretty good." (On the overall game) "I wouldn't say this was a pretty glamourous game. It was just a grind. I think anytime you come to Mississippi State, they have a good basketball team. We knew that it was probably going to be a grind. We thought we might shoot the ball a little better than we did. Our defense stayed tact, kept rebounding, and we didn't let our offense effect that phase of our game." (On the pace of the game) "We still wanted to run, but we wanted to be a little more selective with our shots at the end of transition. We felt we were rushing our shots, going down and taking really quick shots. A lot of times, weren't set and ready to shoot it. Against Kentucky, we were standing on shots and early shots went down. Some games they don't fall. Then you have to be selective and let's get ready to set up our half-court offense." SENIOR FORWARD SHEKINNA STRICKLEN (On Tennessee's slow start in the first half) "We started off a little slow. In the first half, shots weren't falling. I think our defense really helped us out. In the first half, Cierra (Burdick) and Kamiko (Williams) came in and really carried this team. They stepped up coming off the bench. I give those two a lot of credit because they really got us going in the first half." (On rushing shots early) "I think we were starting to rush a little bit. They were making us play a little fast. We didn't really have composure on our shots. We were fading away from our layups. Glory and I were just fading away. We just have to start going into it and going up strong."


(On the difference between her first and second halves) "I was more aggressive, not thinking and just playing. My teammates were carrying me a lot. They were telling me, `It's going to fall. Just keep going hard.' That's what I did with my teammates having my back, this team being together, everyone stepping up and playing their role." (On the keys to Tennessee's turnaround) "It is, but we just bring our defense and rebounding. That's what we had in Monday's game. I felt like our defense was pretty good though (tonight) and it really helped us this game. Our rebounding was outstanding."

UT SEC TOURNAMENT HISTORY 33 SEC Appearances

 The Tennessee Lady Vols’ 2012 appearance in the SEC Tournament is the school’s 33rd time to the mini-Final Four.  This season marks the 31st time that UT has received a first round bye and the eighth trip as the No. 2 seed.  The Lady Vols have fared pretty well from the No. 2 tournament seeding winning the SEC Tournament in six of the previous seven appearances-- 2008, 2006, 2005, 1992, 1989 and 1988.  In 1984, UT bowed out in the quarterfinals as the No. 2 seed. The Lady Vols redeemed the postseason at the Final Four in Los Angeles as the NCAA runner-up.  The Lady Vols have appeared as the No. 1 seed in the SEC tourney 16 times.  UT has been seeded lower than the second spot just six times -- No. 3 (1991, 1985), No. 4 (2009-tie, 1987) and No. 5 (1997, 1986).

UT’s SEC Tournament W-L Record

 Since the tourney began in 1980, the Lady Vols sport the best overall record in the tournament.  UT has produced a 66-17 (.795) record which breaks down this way: vs. Alabama (9-2), vs. Auburn (9-4), vs. Florida (8-0), vs. Georgia (9-3), vs. Kentucky (5-1), 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 65-17 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 7771 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 83 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.

Just Two Meetings with South Carolina

 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 at 29-10 overall.

Closing in on 70 Wins

 If the Lady Vols are lucky enough to win the 2012 tournament, UT will be within one win of 70 all-time SEC Tournament victories.  Tennessee recorded its 60th win all-time in the SEC Tournament with the triumph over #21/18 Florida, 71-67, on Mar. 6, 2009.

LADY VOL BASKETBALL /// 2011-12 GAME NOTES

 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 alltime SEC Tournament wins with 43 (26 losses) and Georgia stands third with 41 wins all-time (28 losses).

20 Times in the Finals

 The Championship game against Kentucky in the 2011 SEC Tournament marked the Lady Vols 20th incredible trip to the final round of the nation’s toughest conference tournament.  UT is 15-5 in all-time SEC Championship game meetings.  In the 1990s alone, the Lady Vols were in the title game eight times (1990, 1991, 1992, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1998, 1999) against five different SEC teams.  In that decade, UT won titles in five of the years – 1999 vs. Georgia, 85-69, 1998 vs. Alabama, 6763, 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 2011, 2010, 2008, 2006, 2005, 2000, 1999, 1998, 1996, 1994, 1992, 1989, 1988, 1985, and 1980.  UT amassed a 16-3 record in SEC games played in Chattanooga and brought home four titles from that venue (1994, 1996, 1999 and 2000).  In four SEC Championships in Nashville, UT has taken two titles home in 2008 and 2011.

Daring Doubles

 In 2011, UT pulled of the “daring double” by winning both the SEC regular season and SEC Tournament titles.  It marked the first back-to-back daring double years in over a decade.  At the 2010 SEC Tournament, the Lady Vols accomplished something they had not done in 10 years, win the “daring double” of the SEC regular season and SEC Tournament titles.  Prior to the last two seasons, previously UT accomplished the double in the 1999-2000 campaigns when UT won its sixth all-time D-D.  Years when the Lady Vols won dual crowns were 1980, 1985, 1994, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2010 and 2011.  Only three other SEC schools have ever won both titles: Georgia (1983, 1984 and 1986), Auburn (1981 and 1987) and Kentucky (1982).

Century Mark in the SEC Tourney

 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 (1997), the Lady Vols scored 100 on LSU in an overtime affair.  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 coached by UT assistant head coach Mickie DeMoss.

SEC Overtime Tournament Games

 In 32 years and 83 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 heart-

Will Receive the Most Courageous Award  This year marks the 35th time the USBWA has presented its Most Courageous Award, which ranks as the third-oldest award in the USBWA’s 56-year history.  This year, Tennessee coach Pat Summitt is one of the recipients.  First presented in 1978, the Most Courageous Award has honored individuals in college basketball who have shown extraordinary courage in the face of adversity and provided an inspiration by overcoming a physical handicap or injury or living through a hardship.  Originally, only one award was presented each year, but since 2010, the USBWA has selected both a male and female recipient annually.  The award was created by former president and later executive director Steve Guback. It has remained a highlight of the USBWA’s annual awards breakfast on the morning of the men’s and women’s national title games.  This year’s recipients – Summitt and Florida State’s Bernard James – follow in a long line of recipients who have been honored for the courage they’ve shown dealing with what life has brought them.

TENNESSEE VS. VANDERBILT/MISSISSIPPI ST.  MAR. 2, 2012 consecutive victories ago over USC dating back to when current UT associate head coach Holly Warlick was the Lady Vol point guard.  UT rebounded from the sixth loss of the season to beat Auburn, 82-61 in Knoxville. on Feb. 5.  Tennessee failed to back its defense and rebounding for the trip to Nashville to face Vanderbilt for the second time in the 2011-12 season.  The Commodores tallied 93 points against UT to win going away in front of a happy black and gold crowd of 12,034 on the Vandy campus on Feb. 9.  Tennessee was looking to avenge loss number seven of the season as Kentucky rolled into Knoxville for a Big Monday game on ESPN2 on Feb.13.  The Orange played one of its most complete games of the season and skinned the Cats, 9154, to vault back into the SEC race.  Instead of packing the momentum from the win over UK, Tennessee managed wins at Mississippi State ( 57-41) and Ole Miss (66-56), Feb. 16 and 19.  The uninspired road play definitely had the UT coaching staff concerned as a red hot Arkansas team traveled to Knoxville on Feb. 23.  On Jan. 8, UT embarrassed the Razorbacks 69-38 in Fayetteville as the Hogs managed just 10 field goals for the game and shot 18.2 percent from the field.  Arkansas, who had just one win over Tennessee all-time, took a 72-71 overtime decision on Feb. 23 in Knoxville.  It marked the first-ever three loss record in TBA. Inside the Numbers  During February, UT averaged 72.6 ppg while giving up 62.5 ppg.  Tennessee’s rebounding advantage dropped to just +5.5 (40.5 rpg to 35.0 rpg for the opposition).  While UT connected on a better field goal percentage (.461), the opponents were more accurate from three-point land at .336 (48-143 vs. just 33-106 for UT, .311).  Ironically, UT’s top three scorers in Shekinna Stricklen, Glory Johnson and Meighan Simmons were right on average.

Rim Runners

Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda  After losing just one game in the SEC the past two seasons and claiming both the regular season and tournament titles, UT finished second in the league behind Kentucky.  Tennessee dropped a heartbreaker at Kentucky, 61-60, on Jan. 12, but kept the Cats in sight.  On Feb. 2, the Lady Vols lost to South Carolina, 64-60, for the first time in 40 games dating back to 1980.  LSU assisted UT by defeating Kentucky on Feb. 5 handing the Wildcats its first SEC loss of the year.  The Orange squandered that gift by losing at Vanderbilt, 93-79, on Feb. 9 in Nashville.  Tennessee bounced back and fashioned a 91-54 win over Kentucky to hand the Cats its second SEC loss.  Alabama then gift-wrapped a third UK loss in Kentucky’s very next game to tie the two teams at 10-3 in the SEC.  UT owned the top spot tiebreaker over UK heading into the game with Arkansas but lost to the Hogs 72-71 in OT.

Heartbreaking Loss to the Hogs

TENNESSEE VS. VANDERBILT/MISSISSIPPI ST.  MAR. 2, 2012 7-of-16 vs. Notre Dame & 18-for-31 Against LSU  UT made 16 trips to the charity stripe against Notre Dame and connected on a paltry seven tosses for 43.8 percent.  Tennessee might have defeated LSU by 20 points or more if the Lady Tigers free throw defense hadn’t been so tough.  The Lady Vols were an anemic 18 for 31 from the charity stripe for 58.1 percent. I Swear We Practice  Making free throws has always been a team priority and some of the LSU misses came from normally reliable shooters.  Vicki Baugh went 2-for-6 from the line. She is a 72.7 career free throw shooter.  Since enduring a miserable 52.4 percent inaccuracy from the free throw line in the loss to Virginia in overtime, you’d think the Lady Vols had learned their lesson.  On the season, UT’s free throw percentage has yo-yoed from the 70 percent range to the present of 69.3 percent (438-632) .  Glory Johnson has been sent to the line a team high 168 times and connected on just 102 for a dismal 60.7 accuracy rate.

And Summitt at 200  The 87-64 victory over Vanderbilt on Jan. 15, 2011 was also another home milestone for Summitt...Her 200th SEC home win.

Things to Consider

No Secrets -- Even if We Tried  The Lady Vols have appeared on television in 27 of 29 regular season games.  Every Tennessee game in the SEC package was slated for TV this year.

Elite Company

Glory -- Running Out of Time  It’s a fact that Tennessee has produced some of the greatest players ever in women’s collegiate basketball.  It’s a little known fact that there has only been one double-figure rebounder in the history of the program -- Olympian and Kodak All-American Patricia Roberts.  Roberts hauled in 14.2 rpg (467 total) in her only season as a Lady Vol in 1976-77. She also claimed scoring honors with 29.9 ppg (987 points) in her single season on The Hill.    In 2006-07, Candace Parker came the closest to a double-figure rebounding average but had to settle for 9.8 rpg.  Last season, Glory Johnson flirted with the elusive double-digit and managed 9.7 rpg.  Johnson is currently averaging 9.3 rpg.

Head Coach Pat Summitt

Amazing Summitt Numbers  Pat Summitt’s teams have faced 164 different opponents in 1,299 total games and teams from 35 conferences  46% of her 1,299 total games have been played versus ranked teams (601 total games against ranked opponents) with 438 victories versus ranked opponents  161 all-time Lady Vols have contributed to 1,092 wins.  72% of those all-time players have gone on to be decorated as Olympians, All-Americans, USA 12

Rather, it is for the quality of their effort and manner of their striving.”  Summitt and Krzyzewski join UCLA’s John Wooden (1972) and North Carolina’s Dean Smith (1997) to round out a veritable Mount Rushmore of college coaches who have received this award.  In 1972, Wooden, who had won his eighth national title in nine seasons, was selected along with Billie Jean King.

Announcing the Pat Summitt Foundation  Since sharing her diagnosis of dementia in late August, Lady Vol coach Pat Summitt indicated she would like to start a foundation.  Summitt along with her son, Tyler, have formed a foundation that will fund grants in support of Alzheimer’s programs.

Off the Glass

Rebounds Win Championships  Coach Pat Summitt’s mantra of defense and boards has been a staple of her nearly four decades of coaching.  UT started out the 2011-12 regular season hauling in 54 boards against Pepperdine while the Waves snagged 34.  Tennessee fell off the rebounding wagon in the very next game as Miami controlled the glass collecting 45 boards to the Lady Vols’ 38 total rebounds. That was a vast improvement over UT’s 13-rebound deficit at halftime to the Hurricanes.  UT corrected the rebounding problem against Virginia, 45-38, with Shekinna Stricklen collecting 14 boards.  Since losing the battle of the boards to Miami,

They were honored in pregame ceremonies and all five comprised the starting line-up.  Per Lady Vol tradition, Tennessee also recognized the Florida seniors -- Deana Allen, Lanita Bartley, Jordan Jones, Ndidi Madu and Azania Stewart. AARP Day in Thompson-Boling Seniors Salute Summitt with Inspire Award  At halftime on the Jumbotron, Lady Vol head coach Pat Summitt will be presented a national “Inspire Award” from the AARP.  Summitt was recognized with the 10th annual award in the December/January issue of the magazine.  Each year, the “Inspire Awards” honor individuals who inspire others to action through their innovative thinking, passion and perseverance.  Summitt received her recognition as an Alzheimer’s Advocate.  “Pat Summitt simply epitomizes the word ‘inspiration,’” said AARP Tennessee State Director Rebecca Kelly.  “I have long admired her passion, commitment, tenacity and the love she has shown for her team, colleagues, friends and family.”  AARP reached out to more than 700,000 Lady Vol fans in Tennessee and other Southeastern Conference states via email and social media, encouraging them to join AARP for Sunday’s “Senior Day” game against Florida. Final SEC Regular Season Road Swing Started at The Hump  Tennessee picked up SEC win number 10 on the season at Mississippi State on Feb. 16, 2012, 5741.  All-time, the Lady Vols have registered doubledigit victories in conference play an incredible 18 times, and 14 times in the last 15 years since conference play expanded. Continued at the “Tad Pad”  UT closed out the road portion of the SEC schedule with a tough 66-56 win over Ole Miss on Feb. 19 for SEC win number 11.  Tennessee has now fashioned a 23-game winning streak over Ole Miss dating back to the 199596 season.  The last time UT lost in Oxford was on Feb. 4, 1996, 78-72.  It was a “meltdown” game for then Tennessee senior Michelle Marciniak who vowed that the Lady Vols would not lose again.  “Spinderella” was right. UT won 15 straight to claim the 1996 NCAA title following the loss to the Lady Rebels. Back on Course vs. Kentucky That 90 Thing for the Lady Vols  After getting decked by 93 points at Vanderbilt, the Lady Vols came back in the very next game and unloaded for 91 points against SEC leader Kentucky.  It marked the fourth time in the 2011-12 season that the Lady Vols scored 90 points.  UT dropped 92 against #7 Miami, 91 against Kentucky and 90 versus both Old Dominion and Chattanooga. Bounced Back ...Yet Again

Bounced Back from Loss Number Seven  Tennessee was in a battle to bounce back from loss number seven of the season having to face Kentucky on Feb. 12.  The Lady Vols played one of its best games of the season in upsetting the SEC’s top team, 91-54.  The last time UT had seven losses on Feb. 13 was the Cinderella Season of 1996-97.  The Lady Vols had also seven losses at that point in the year and would eventually collect 10 (L’s to #8 La Tech, #5 Georgia, #1 Stanford, #22 Arkansas, #1UConn, #4 Old Dominion, #19 Florida, #6/5 Louisiana Tech, #13 LSU, and unranked Auburn in the SEC Tournament).  The last time UT took (at least) seven losses on the year was the 11 “L” season in 2008-09. Vandy Post-Mortem That 90 Thing  On Feb. 9, Vanderbilt was the second team in 2011-12 season to hang 90 points on the Lady Vols.  The Commodores dealt UT a 93-79 loss in Nashville.  Stanford was the first to post a plus-90 score when the Cardinal defeated Tennessee 97-80 on Dec. 20, 2011 in Palo Alto, Calif.  The last team to drop 90 on the Big Orange was Florida on Feb. 26, 2006. That game gets a Major League asterisk since it was a 95-93 overtime win for the Gators in Knoxville. Defense Wins Games  Other than this season and the 2006, 90 point game, you have to venture back to the “Cinderella Season” of 1996-97 for the last multiple 90 point games by the opposition.  Tennessee, the eventual 1997 NCAA Champions with a 29-10 overall record and an 8-4 record in the SEC, had three opponents score 90 or more points that season.  Georgia took a 94-93 overtime win on Dec. 8, 1996 in Knoxville...Louisiana Tech claimed a 98-80 victory in Ruston, La., on Feb. 24, 1997...and UT prevailed in a 100-99 overtime win over LSU in the SEC Tournament on Mar. 1, 1997.  That team lost 10 games but it never lost its heart and desire to compete for a championship. Upset Special Unranked South Carolina  When South Carolina defeated Tennessee, 64-60, on Feb. 2, it marked the second loss in the 2011-12 season to an unranked team.  All-time, UT coach Pat Summitt’s Lady Vols have lost to just 39 unranked teams in 38 years (overall, 652-39 for .945).  In 2008-09, the Lady Vols were ambushed by three unranked teams: at Kentucky (66-56), at LSU (63-61) and vs. Ball State (71-55).  South Carolina is only the second unranked team to collect a win over the Lady Vols in the 25-year history of Thompson-Boling Arena.  Unranked Florida defeated #5-ranked Tennessee, 95-93 in overtime on Senior Day in ThompsonBoling Arena on Feb. 26, 2006. Breaking into Our House Better Set an Alarm  Before South Carolina upended Tennessee 64-60 on Feb. 2, the Lady Vols had won 28 consecutive SEC games in Thompson-Boling Arena dating back to 2008.  Top-ranked Baylor also defeated Tennessee in Knoxville earlier this season by a 76-67 score on Nov. 27, 2011. Two Thompson-Boling Losses in a Single Season  The Tennessee Lady Vols rarely lose at home.  In fact, since moving to the Thompson-Boling Arena for the 1987-88 campaign, 25-years ago, UT has lost two games in one season just eight times now that South Carolina managed the upset.  UT lost two games in TBA during the inaugural 1987-88 campaign and then in: 1996-97, 1999-00, 2001-02, 2003-04, 2005-06, 2008-09 and now the 2011-12 season(s). Just 22 TBA Losses for the Lady Vols -- All-Time  The 22 all-time losses at TBA have come at the hands of just 12 teams: South Carolina (2012), Baylor (2011), Virginia (2008), Florida (2006), LSU (2008, 2006), Duke (2009, 2007, 2004), Con-

necticut (2004, 2002, 2000, 1996), Louisiana Tech (1999, 1989), Georgia (1996, 1991), Texas (2003, 2002, 1987), Stanford (1996) and Auburn (1988). UT’s SEC Streak was Snapped by USC  Before South Carolina upended Tennessee 64-60 on Feb. 2, the Lady Vols had won 28 consecutive SEC games in Thompson-Boling Arena dating back to 2008.  Before the USC loss, UT’s last SEC home loss was to #7-ranked LSU on Feb. 14, 2008, 78-62. Rewind to January 12, 2012, 6:59 p.m. Inconsistent Since Then  Tennessee entered the game at Kentucky on Jan. 12, 2012, sporting a 12-3 overall record and a 3-0 mark in the SEC.  The Lady Vols had won 36 consecutive SEC games dating back to a loss at Georgia in Jan. 2010.  Prior to the UK game, UT had won five consecutive games since the loss at Stanford.  During that five-game winning streak heading into the Kentucky game, UT outscored the opposition 80.4 to 45.0 (a +35.4 winning margin) and controlled the boards 51.4 to 29.4 rpg...a +22.0 rebounding advantage. Bad Pattern Since the UK Loss  Since UT dropped the heartbreaking 61-60 game at UK on Jan. 12, the Lady Vols have developed a bad pattern.  After the UK loss, Tennessee bounced back to win a pair (over Vandy and LSU at home) and then lost to Notre Dame on the road.  After the Notre Dame loss, Tennessee regrouped to defeat Alabama and Georgia on the road.  That winning streak was halted by South Carolina in Knoxville and UT rebounded to defeat Auburn But lost in the very next game at Vanderbilt.  Tennessee has gone just 5-4 over the last month. Telling Numbers Inside the 5-4 Record over the Last Month  Tennessee is shooting 42.9 percent from the field and the opposition is tossing in 41.2 percent of its shots.  Tennessee is averaging 70.0 ppg and giving up 64.1 ppg.  Perhaps the most telling stat is rebounding where the Lady Vols have averaged just 38.6 to 38.1 rpg for the opposition-- uncharacteristic +0.5 advantage.  Senior All-American Shekinna Stricklen has struggled from the field connecting on 41.8 percent of her shots and just 25.8 percent of her three-point attempts.  Glory Johnson has been very challenged at the charity stripe with a team low 46.8 percent (2247).  On the bright side, rookie Ariel Massengale has logged a team high 32.9 minutes per game during this stretch handing out 52 assists while committing 24 miscues (296 minutes).  Sophomore Meighan Simmons is shooting the ball a tad better connecting on 37.2 percent of her shots and 35 percent from three-point land. Play 4 Kay Honoring Kay Yow  The Tennessee vs. Kentucky game is UT’s Play 4 Kay night, formerly known as the Pink Zone, an initiative of the WBCA to promote breast cancer awareness.  UT has dubbed the game “Think Pink. Bleed Orange.”  By way of 12,000 t-shirts in the seats of the arena, an alternating pink/white checkerboard will be formed.  One side of the arena will spell out “Lady Vols” and on the other side, “Live Pink.”  Both will be anchored by breast cancer ribbons. Remembering our Lady Vols  Tonight’s game for breast cancer awareness takes on additional significance for Lady Vol basketball.  We celebrate Director of Lady Vol basketball Character Development Daedra Charles-Furlow continued good health after battling breast cancer and becoming a survivor.  And we remember one of our own who lost her lost her fight with breast cancer on Dec. 27, 2010.  Melissa McCray Dukes, nicknamed “Emma” by her Tennessee Lady Vol basketball teammates, played on four consecutive NCAA Final Four teams (198687-88-89) and started as a guard on coach Pat Sum-

More Home Trends  Tennessee is just a shade off on its home rims connecting on 43.4 percent from the field versus 43.6 on the road.  Vicki Baugh enjoys the TBA baskets the most connecting on 63.9 percent of her shots.  Sophomore Meighan Simmons is a bit “basket challenged” at home making just 29.6 percent of her shots.  As a rookie, Simmons made 46.2 percent of her shots from the field on The Summitt last season.  At home this year, the Big Orange outscores the opposition by +22.5 points and has a +13.9 rebounding edge with a 9-2 record. Carla McGhee Knows TBA  Auburn assistant coach Carla McGhee knows her way around Thompson-Boling Arena.  As a forward/center wearing number 24 for the Lady Vols from 1986-90, McGhee was a member of the 1987 and 1989 NCAA Championship teams.  The 6’3” Peoria, Ill., native averaged 6.1 ppg and 5.1 rpg while appearing in 101 Lady Vol games.  McGhee was a Lady Vol fan favorite. After after a serious car accident just before the start of her sophomore season, where almost every bone was broken in her face and her hip was shattered, she returned to the line-up the following year.  She was a member of the 1996 USA Olympic Team and proudly owns a gold medal. Former UT Players & Staffers in Coaching Tough W’s against Summitt  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 , Tanya Haave and Nikki Caldwell.  UT coach Pat Summitt has faced many former players and assistant coaches in a variety of games thru the years as opposing head coaches, but no former Lady Vol player has ever knocked off her mentor as a head coach.  Former assistant Carolyn Peck was the first to record a victory over her former boss. While at Purdue, Peck handed Summitt a 78-68 loss on Nov. 15, 1998 in the State Farm Tip-Off Classic in West Lafayette, Ind. The defeat snapped UT’s 46-game consecutive winning streak (that was second only to Louisiana Tech’s NCAA all-time 54-game winning streak).  Former assistants Mickie DeMoss and Matthew Mitchell turned the winning trick as head coaches at Kentucky, (DeMoss 66-63, on Jan. 26, 2006 and Mitchell 66-56 on Feb. 19, 2009 and 61-60 on Jan. 12, 2012 -- all in Lexington), and Sylvia Hatchell managed to pull off the feat twice at North Carolina (75-63 on Mar. 28, 2006 and 7057, Dec. 3, 2006). Facing Coach Summitt  Former Lady Vol players turned head coaches have been less successful. Former Lady Vol AllAmerica Patricia Roberts tried while head coach at Maine (0-2, lost 77-64 on Dec. 13, 1990 and 8671 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.  UT All-American and then San Francisco head 16

Fellow freshman Ariel Massengale was No. 61 on that list, starting the first game of the season versus Pepperdine.  Also receiving the starting nod was senior Briana Bass who started for the first time this season and the 15th time in her career. Shekinna’s Number was Not Called  Lady Vol senior Shekinna Stricklen had the nation’s longest starting streak entering the 201112 season.  Stricklen started 121 consecutive times before sitting out the LSU game due to injury.  She started the very next game against Notre Dame to up her starts to 122 in a LV uniform.  Alabama marked the first time in her Lady Vol career she did not start a game when she was available to play. What ‘Cha Got Rookie?

Burdick Makes the Most of her Opportunity  Rookie Cierra Burdick is the first one in the gym and the last one to leave.  Against LSU, all of her extra hard work paid off as she logged a career high 31 minutes en route to dropping in 15 points and grabbing six rebounds.  She started the second half for Glory Johnson who suffered a shoulder injury.  Even when Johnson returned, the Lady Vol coaching staff elected to keep UT’s AutoZone Player of the Game on the floor. Trends  UT’s 86-point output against Alabama last week was the most points the Lady Vols have scored this season on the road.  The Bama game also marked the 11th time during the 2011-12 campaign that UT scored 80 or more points.  Shekinna Stricklen averaged 14.3 ppg last week on the road, leading the team in scoring at Alabama and Georgia.  Last week, thieves ran wild over the Lady Vols. Notre Dame swiped the ball 11 times and Georgia gathered in 10 steals. Virginia rang the bell with 13 thefts in their 69-64 win over UT. BCS Schedule  On the road...the Lady Vols traveled for three consecutive road games -- which kind of sound like a BCS Bowl line-up -- at #2-ranked Notre Dame, at Alabama and at Georgia.  The “Big Monday” game at Notre Dame was the final regular season non-conference game for the Lady Vols.  The Irish held UT to the fewest points in program history in the 72-44 Lady Vol loss.  The Notre Dame game was an advance sell-out which joined capacity games at Rutgers, UCLA, Stanford and Kentucky this season.  UT got back on the winning track in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Thursday night taking a 86-56 win over Alabama.  The arduous road swing concluded with a 67-50 win at #17/15 Georgia on Jan. 29. Before Bama, Last Four had not been Great Just 2-2 Overall  In the Lady Vols last four games before the win at Alabama on Jan. 26, (at #9/8 Kentucky, vs. #25/24 Vanderbilt, vs. LSU and at #2 Notre Dame), UT went 2-2 with both losses coming on the road.  Tennessee outscored the opposition by a scant 64.0 to 63.2 margin during this stretch.  The shooting woes were pretty apparent as UT connected on just 39.6 percent of FG, 29.2 from three-point land, 56.5 percent of free throws (48 of 85).  Rebounding was only slightly better at 40.0 rpg while giving up 37.5 rpg. Birthday Week Two Celebrated  Lady Vol sophomore Meighan Simmons spent her 20th birthday on Jan. 25 traveling to Tuscaloosa, Ala.  Junior Taber Spani turned 21 years old from 30,000 feet as the Lady Vols were winging their way home from Tuscaloosa on Jan. 27. Super Sunday Mark it Down  On Sun., Jan. 22, all 11 Lady Vols on the 2011-12 roster practiced together for the first time all season.  Junior Taber Spani, who had been sidelined since Dec. 26 and who had not played since Dec. 20, participated in practice.  Spani shed her crutches Jan. 20 and went through a light workout with Jenny Moshak, Associate Athletics Director for Sports Medicine, on Sat., Jan. 21.  Banged up and bruised Glory Johnson and the wonky knee of Shekinna Stricklen were good to go in practice as well. Put it in the Rearview Mirror No Excuses--Everyone was available to Play  All 11 Lady Vols were available and saw action for the first time in 2011-12 at Notre Dame.


TENNESSEE VS. VANDERBILT/MISSISSIPPI ST.  MAR. 2, 2012  Taber Spani returned to the floor for a game the first time since the Lady Vols lost at Stanford on Dec. 20.

Stop Thief  With 10 steals, Notre Dame was the second team on the year to put up double-digit steals against the Lady Vols.  The only other team was Virginia (13 steals), also a loss. Been Gimpy and Limpy Lately Health Improved Heading into Notre Dame  Tennessee took to the court at Notre Dame on Jan. 23 with a few more healthy players.  Shekinna Stricklen (15.5 ppg) was back in the starting line-up after missing the LSU game with a knee sprain.  Glory Johnson, who suffered a shoulder injury in the LSU contest on Jan. 19, was sporting and playing in a shoulder brace.  Taber Spani saw the court at Notre Dame for nine minutes after missing the last eight games. She is still listed as day-to-day. Limped into the LSU game  Tennessee took to the court in a key SEC meeting with LSU on Jan. 19 in Knoxville with nine healthy players.  Neither Shekinna Stricklen (15.5 ppg) nor Taber Spani (11.9 ppg) saw action.  The pair account for a little less than 30 percent of the total team scoring.

Massengale Making Progress  Starting rookie point guard Ariel Massengale is making progress in recovering from a dislocated finger.  In the last couple of days, she has returned to the court to take some light reps.  The protective cast-like material was removed prior to the team traveling out west.  On Dec. 8, Jenny Moshak, University of Tennessee Associate Athletics Director for Sports Medicine, announced that Massengale had suffered a dislocated finger in practice and would possibly be out of the lineup for two to three weeks.  The week previously, the rookie from Bolingbrook, Ill., collected the first conference honors of her collegiate career as she was named SEC Women’s Basketball Freshman of the Week following her outstanding performance in UT’s wins over Middle Tennessee and (then) No. 20/21-ranked Texas.  On the season, Massengale is averaging 7.2 ppg and 5.8 apg for the No. 7/8-ranked Lady Vols. Missing Miss Massengale  In the three games with out Ariel Massengale, ball security has been an issue.  Tennessee has committed 50 miscues in the last three games.  UT lost the ball an improved 15 times at UCLA. However, those 15 miscues led to 15 Bruin points.  Against #11-ranked Rutgers, UT had 16 turnovers (including three offensive fouls).  UT evenly spaced the miscues with eight in each half.  At the start of the game against DePaul, the Lady Vols certainly looked like they were very much missing freshman point guard Massengale.  In the first five minutes, all five starters lost the ball at least once for a total of six UT miscues.  Tennessee managed to settle down over the next 15 minutes of the half and lost the ball just seven times. Taber is Clutch  Since suffering a bone bruise against Virginia on Nov. 20, junior Taber Spani has struggled a bit with her game.  In her last two contests, she looks like she is on the way back.  Against UCLA, she drilled 4-of-6 treys and was 5-for7 from the field for 14 points.  Following a couple of “not so Taber” performances, she was one of the second half sparks in the win over Rutgers.  Spani drilled a death ray trey with 1:53 left to give UT a comfortable 10-point lead, 64-54, to seal the comeback win.  The forward looked like her old self in the second half scoring 10 points and dishing three assists.  She logged 31 minutes on the night. Rutgers Backs Pat  The folks at Rutgers showed their support for UT coach Pat Summitt when the two teams met on Dec. 13.  The Rutgers players wore “We Back Pat” shooting shirts and RU athletics director Tim Pernetti presented UT a commemorative jersey for Summitt.  Rutgers sold the Pat Summitt Foundation bracelets on the concourse with the proceeds going to the

Foundation fund. UT & Rutgers Hall of Famers  Both Tennessee and Rutgers can boast of Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame (Knoxville, Tenn.) and Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame (Springfield, Mass.) head coach inductees in Pat Head Summitt and C. Vivian Stringer.  Summitt joined the Women’s HoF when she was selected as a member of the inaugural class of 1999, while Stringer was a 2001 inductee.  In Fall 2009, Stringer earned her induction into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame while Summitt was a member of the Class of 2000.  Not only are the head coaches members of the WBHOF but UT also sports Lady Vol associate head coach Holly Warlick (inducted as a player in the Class of 2001 with Coach Stringer) and Lady Vol Basketball Director of Character Development, Daedra Charles-Furlow was a 2007 inductee. Garden Party  Tennessee’s appearance in Madison Square Garden, “the world’s most famous basketball arena,” marks the fourth time for the Lady Vols.  UT has a 3-0 record at MSG.  In all previous trips to the Garden, Rutgers has been the opponent each time.  Lady Vol All-American and Olympian Chamique Holdsclaw traveled to her hometown for her senior year in 1998-99. It marked UT’s first trip to The Garden.  The game was played before the largest crowd to ever see a women’s collegiate basketball game in the Garden, 15,735.  The trip was billed as the NYC homecoming for Holdsclaw who hailed from Astoria in Queens.  Second-ranked UT had little trouble with the No. 15/13-ranked Scarlet Knights winning 68-54 on Jan. 3, 1999.  The next visit was a meeting between #2 ranked Tennessee, who was trying to rebound from a loss at UConn, and #9/10-ranked Rutgers, in a defensive struggle in Madison Square Garden on Jan. 2, 2001, as the Lady Vols won 58-51.  In the 2001 game at MSG, Lady Vol senior AllAmerican Tamika Catchings was forced to wear the “blood jersey” (number 55), after her number 24 orange road jersey turned up missing when the UT managers did the team laundry after the game versus UConn in Hartford. It never did appear on eBay.  The Lady Vols were invited to play in the Maggie Dixon Classic in 2009 with Rutgers as the opponent once again. No. 4/3-ranked Tennessee defeated the Scarlet Knights, 68-54, on Dec. 13. Maggie Dixon Classic Classic Notes  This marks the second time the Lady Vols have participated in the Maggie Dixon Classic.  Lady Vol coach Pat Summitt is the 2011 recipient of the Maggie Dixon Courage Award. Summitt will be honored by the Dixon family during a second half time out in the Classic’s first game between Baylor and St. John’s.  Ironically, the last game Maggie Dixon ever coached at Army was against Tennessee. In 2006 Tennessee, Army, Old Dominion and George Washington were all bracketed together in Norfolk, Virginia, for NCAA First /Second Rounds.  The night before the Tennessee vs. Army contest both coaching staffs found themselves dining at the same Virginia Beach seafood restaurant.  Basketball talk ensued that evening and the next day the two teams met on the court.  The game won’t be remembered as Army’s first appearance in the NCAA Tournament under a rookie head coach but as the game in which Tennessee redshirt freshman Candace Parker dunked twice as the Lady Vols won going away, 102-54 on March 19, 2006.  The next week, the Lady Vols met Rutgers in the Sweet 16 in the Cleveland Regional (a 76-69 win) but lost to North Carolina in the Regional Championship, 75-63.  Sadly, Maggie Dixon passed away after the Final Four in Boston on April 6, 2006.

The Lady Vols are 3-10 in Knoxville, an even 6-6 on the road and 5-13 on neutral courts.  UT is currently ranked number six in the AP poll. Tennessee is now 0-4 when trying to upset #1 from that position.  UT is currently ranked number seven in the USA Today/ESPN poll. Tennessee is now 0-2 when trying to upset #1 from that position.

The Lady Vols missed charity tosses down the stretch to lose 74-70 to top-ranked Duke after mounting a furious comeback rally.  The Blue Devils opened the game with a nightmarish 19-0 run-out, as the Lady Vols fell into a 21-point hole (28-7 at 9:23 in the first half) before rallying to 20

LADY VOL BASKETBALL /// 2011-12 GAME NOTES

narrow the halftime deficit to 11 points (38-27).  Free throw defense stymied Tennessee, as the Lady Vols connected on just 8-17 (.471) for the game. AllAmerican Candace Parker managed just 1-7 from the free throw line. Good Neighbors  The 2011 meeting with Miami in the State Farm TipOff Classic marked the Lady Vols eighth appearance in the State Farm TipOff Classic and the fifth time to host the event. Tennessee now has a 6-2 record in TipOff games. Making a Claim  In the first TipOff in 1993, Lady Vol coach Pat Summitt picked up her 500th career victory.  In the TipOff in 1998, Purdue and Coach Carolyn Peck halted the Lady Vols school record 46-game consecutive winning streak.  Tennessee’s last opening game home loss to start a season came against Louisiana Tech in the 1999 TipOff Classic, 69-64, as UT failed to convert free throws in the waning seconds.  In Tennessee’s most recent TipOff appearance in 2009 in Knoxville, the Lady Vols spoiled Brittney Griner’s first collegiate game with a 74-65 victory over the Lady Bears. Going into the Hall  Lady Vol Olympian and All-American Nikki McCray Pinson will be a member of the 2012 Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame Induction Class. Also being inducted are: Nancy Fahey (Coach), Pamela McGee (Player), Inge Nissen (Player), Robin Roberts (Contributor), and Dawn Staley (Player)Rookie Starts  A true rookie got a starting nod on the opening day of the 2011-12 season.  When Coach Pat Summitt started freshman Ariel Massengale against Pepperdine in the opening game of the 2011-12 season, it marked only the 14th time in her coaching career that a freshman started her very first game at Tennessee -- out of a total of 161 all-time Lady Vols who have played at UT.  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  With Ariel Massengale getting the opening day start against Pepperdine, she became the 61st rookie all-time to earn a starting assignment at UT. Last season, Meighan Simmons, a 5-9 point guard from Cibolo, Texas, became the 60th rookie all-time to earn a starting assignment at Tennessee.  The previous year, rookie Kamiko Williams (59th alltime) started against Arkansas while her classmate and fellow rookie Taber Spani, became the 13th frosh to start her very first game at UT and the 58th rookie overall.  In 2008-09, 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.  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. Fourth Earliest Opener

 The game against Pepperdine was the fourth earliest date the Lady Vols have ever opened the season. UT’s earliest opening game was during the 2002-03 season with first tip on Nov. 10, 2002, taking on #22/19-ranked Oklahoma and registering a 94-68 win.

KNOXVILLE -- It took over two minutes for the first shot to finally fall. Pepperdine never led, but kept within two baskets until an 8-0 run capped by Meighan Simmons’ jumper with 10:32 left in the first half gave Tennessee a 20-9 lead. Summitt played her entire bench in the first half, including freshmen Cierra Burdick and Isabelle Harrison, and the Tennessee reserves scored 20 points.

KNOXVILLE - Junior Taber Spani hit a game-high four three-pointers, but none bigger than the one she drained from the top of the key as the shot clock expired with 6:36 remaining in the game. The swish ignited an 11-0 Tennessee run and ultimately helped lift the No. 3 Tennessee women’s basketball team (2-0) to a 92-76 victory over No. 7 Miami (1-1) on Tuesday evening at Thompson-Boling Arena.

Glory Johnson led the Lady Vols with 17 points and 13 rebounds. Shekinna Stricklen and Simmons each had 13 points, Taber Spani contributed 11 points and Briana Bass had 10.

The pair of top ten teams were tied, 42-42, at halftime before Tennessee scored the second half’s first nine points and 18 of the first 22 to take a 60-46 lead.

Pepperdine’s tough defense came at a cost. The Waves had 14 personal fouls in the first half, though the Lady Vols were uncharacteristically sloppy at the charity stripe, making just two of six foul shots before halftime.

But the Hurricanes came storming back, eventually getting as close as 73-68. That’s when Spani saved her best for her last shot.

Still, it forced Rousseau to go deep into her bench, which was responsible for just four points in the first half and 19 total. Jazmine Jackson had 17 points for the Waves, who shot 28.4 percent to the Lady Vols’ 49.2 percent shooting. Tennessee outrebounded Pepperdine 54-34, but couldn’t turn them into points. The Lady Vols gained control of the game with their 20 fast-break points and by sinking eight of their 10 3-point baskets in the second half. Summitt gave a starting nod to point guard Ariel Massengale, making her just the 14th Lady Vol to start her very first career game. The coach was so convinced of Massengale’s talent and frustrated by a lack of a bona fide point guard last season that she dubbed Massengale a starter back in March. Massengale sat for more than 13 minutes in the first half after picking up two fouls and finished with just one field goal, but had five assists to just one turnover and came up with two steals and three rebounds in 20 minutes.

After her three-pointer, the Lady Vols forced a shot clock violation on the other end, and freshman Isabelle Harrison scored her first points of the evening off of on an offensive rebound. Tennessee went on to score 19 of the game’s final 27 points to notch its second win in as many tries this season. After Miami’s Riquna Williams went off for 17 first-half points, UT limited her to just seven in the second. Although she finished with a game-high 24 points, the Lady Vols made her use 28 shot attempts to get there. Tennessee had five players in double-figures. Joining Spani were Meighan Simmons (18), Johnson (16), Shekinna Stricklen (15) and Ariel Massengale (11). Johnson also chipped in a team-high nine rebounds, while Massengale led the game with the second-highest assist total by a UT freshman all-time with nine. In the first half, it was the Hurricanes that got off to a strong start. After Baugh scored the game’s opening bucket on a layup, Miami went on a 10-2 run for its largest lead of the contest, 10-4. The Hurricanes made four of their first six three-point attempts, and led until a try from Simmons put the Lady Vols back ahead, 18-16, with 13:41 left in the first half. After UM’s Stefanie Yderstorm responded with a three-pointer of her own complemented by a Krystal Saunders layup, the Lady Vols scored eight consecutive points to take a 26-21 lead with 10:21 left in the first half and would not trail again. UT matched its biggest lead of the first 20 minutes, 38-31, on a jumper from Spani, who led the team with 13 first-half points. UM closed the first half with an 11-4 run to tie the score, 42-42.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Chelsea Shine scored 18 points, including a key basket in overtime, and Virginia stunned turnover-prone No. 3 Tennessee 69-64 on Sunday. The Cavaliers (4-0) came into the game allowing just over 42 points a game under first-year coach Joanne Boyle, and dictated the pace against a Lady Vols team averaging 90.5 points.

KNOXVILLE - The No. 6 Lady Vols led for much of the second half, but No. 1 Baylor took the lead late in the second half and went on to a 76-67 win before an electric crowd at Thompson-Boling Arena. The contest was the first “WE BACK PAT” game as the Pat Summitt Foundation was launched at halftime and $150,000 was presented to the Alzheimer’s Tennessee and the UT Medical Center with money raised from sales of “WE BACK PAT” shirts.

Taber Spani led the Lady Vols (2-1) with 22 points, including a 3-pointer 59 seconds into overtime that gave Tennessee a 61-58 lead, but the Cavaliers scored the next 11 points, the crowd at John Paul Jones Arena getting more excited with each basket.

Baylor All-American Brittney Griner scored 17 of her game-high 26 in the second half to lead the Bears’ comeback as they moved to 6-0. UT’s All-American Shekinna Stricklen led the Lady Vols with 25 points and 12 rebounds. Vicki Baugh also had 17 points and 10 rebounds.

China Crosby had 13 points and Ataira Franklin 12 for Virginia, which beat Tennessee for just the third time in 16 games. Lexie Gerson and Ariana Moorer each scored 10. Shekinna Stricklen had 16 and Glory Johnson 15 for the Lady Vols, who missed 10 of 21 free throws.

With the loss, the Lady Vols’ 38-game home win streak comes to an end as Tennessee falls to 2-2 overall. The last time UT started a season 2-2 was the 1990-91 season. That year, Tennessee went on to win its third NCAA Championship with a 30-5 record.

In the overtime, after Spani’s 3-pointer, Moorer hit a pair of free throws, and then a foul-line jumper, one of only three baskets she made in 16 tries. Shine followed a turnover the Tennessee with a short baseline jumper, and Crosby hit 3 of 4 free throws to make it 67-61.

Odyssey Sims (23 points) knocked down a 3-pointer with 7:20 left in regulation to give Baylor the lead it would never relinquish, 56-53. Glory Johnson (9 points, 11 rebounds) swooped in for a layup with 6:40 left to bring UT back within one at 56-55, but that was as close as it would be the rest of the way.

The Lady Vols never had an answer, and each time they failed to score and Virginia came away with the ball, the crowd of 6,450 at John Paul Jones Arena got louder and more excited.

Tennessee continued to pressure in the final minutes, but missed several shots as the Lady Vols shot just 29.3 percent in the game.

Stricklen had a chance to give the Lady Vols the lead near the end of regulation when she was fouled while scoring, but she missed the free throw, one of 10 misses in 21 tries for Tennessee. The Lady Vols also had 24 turnovers that the Cavaliers turned into 27 points.

Johnson made a pair of free throws with 2:02 left to bring UT back within four at 65-61. Griner answered with another lay-in with just two seconds left on the shot clock to give the Bears a 67-61 lead with 1:32 left in the game.

Crosby broke a 56-all tie with 36.6 seconds to go in regulation, hitting a desperate shot from the baseline with the shot clock running down. After a timeout, Spani calmly swished a 12-footer from the left baseline with 22.8 seconds to go, pulling Tennessee even again.

Baugh (17 points, 11 rebounds) and Stricklen both bombed a 3-pointers in the final 44 seconds, but it wasn’t enough as the Bears posted the win to drop the Lady Vols to 2-2.

Moorer’s last chance drive in regulation was cleanly blocked just before the buzzer. The Cavaliers tightened their defense and Tennessee continued to be sloppy early in the second half as Virginia opened the half on a 14-6 run. The Cavaliers led by as many as nine and by 47-40 when the Lady Vols began asserting themselves on the offensive glass and rallied. Tennessee scored eight straight points, taking its first lead since the first half, but Shine scored inside and Crosby’s three-point play boosted the Cavaliers’ edge back to 52-48. The Lady Vols pulled even three times, but only led once thereafter. Virginia used a 12-2 run to take a 24-20 lead in a sloppy first half. The Lady Vols turned the ball over at least seven times in the drought, and went almost 5 minutes without scoring. Spani, who hit the floor hard at one point and went back to the locker room, led Tennessee with 12 points in the half, and Gerson led the Cavaliers with eight.

The Lady Vols grabbed 55 rebounds, outboarding the Bears, 55-42, their most since the NCAA First Round win over Stetson last season, when they had 63. Taber Spani’s lay-up with 8:50 left, gave the Lady Vols a 53-50. Spani missed the ensuing free throw as part of an and-one as Baylor quickly answered. Griner converted a 3-point play seconds later to tie the game at 53 all. Baylor answered with a 7-0 run to come back within one points at 39-38 before Baugh layed one home for a 41-38 UT edge with 16 minutes left in the game. Baylor took a short-lived lead at 42-41 on a Griner lay-up with 15 minutes left in the second half. Spani regained the edge with a layup just 16 seconds later. The Lady Vols had a 17-2 run bridging the halves to build a lead of 39-31 with 17:39 left in the second half. Stricklen scored on a putback forcing Baylor to call timeout as UT took a sevenpoint lead (38-31) just 1:27 into the second half. Stricklen had eight of UT’s points in the spurt as the Lady Vols bounced back from a 29-22 deficit with four minutes left in the first half. Tennessee led 33-31 at intermission as Spani canned a 3-pointer with 42 seconds left in the half. Stricklen had 19 points and seven rebounds in the first 20 minutes while Brittney Griner was limited to nine points and just three rebounds. The Lady Vols dominated the glass in the first half, holding a 34-19 advantage. That included 18 offensive rebounds as UT shot just 25 percent.

KNOXVILLE - A pair of freshmen, Cierra Burdick and Ariel Massengale, each scored a career-high 14 points and keyed a pair of first-half runs as the No. 8 Tennessee women’s basketball team defeated in-state rival Middle Tennessee, 82-43, Tuesday evening at Thompson-Boling Arena. Massengale logged just 23 minutes, but led the Lady Vols in both scoring for the first time in her career, tying Burdick. Massengale has led Tennessee (3-2) in assists in all five games to open her collegiate career, and had zero turnovers for the first time Tuesday night. Massengale, and UT’s other four starters, had a light night after controlling the action throughout the game’s entirety. Johnson played a starter-high 25 minutes and tallied nine points and nine rebounds. Despite the Lady Vols’ largest win this season of 39 points, UT matched its least amount of double-figure scorers this season with two. Senior preseason All-American Shekinna Stricklen also chipped in 12 points.

KNOXVILLE — Clutch three-point shooting and powerful rebounding lifted #8 Tennessee to a 73-57 victory over #21/22 Texas on Sunday afternoon. From three-point range Tennessee shot 52.4 percent, making 11-of-21 while being led by Shekinna Stricklen (20 points) and Meighan Simmons (10 points), who combined to make 8-of-16 from behind the arc. Stricklen was a career-high 5-of-9 from three-point land. The Lady Vols (4-2) outrebounded the Longhorns (5-2), 49-38, led by Vicki Baugh’s 11 boards. Baugh (17 points) and Glory Johnson (11 points and 10 rebounds) both posted doubledoubles. Ariel Massengale also scored in double-figures with 10 points while handling out five assists. The Longhorns were led by Ashleigh Fontenette and Chassidy Fussell, who tallied 22 and 14 points, respectively.

Over the first 10 minutes of the second half, Tennessee extended its 48-24 halftime lead to a 62-30 margin and the Lady Vols never looked back.

Stricklen’s fifth three-pointer of the game was the final dagger as it put Tennessee up 64-53 with 6:15 to play on a trey as the shot clock was winding down.

UT limited the Blue Raiders (4-3) to 19 points in the second half. Middle Tennessee was led by a game-high 16 points from Kortni Jones. Ebony Rowe also had 10 points for MTSU.

The Lady Vols held Texas scoreless for 6:20 late in the game as the Lady Vols went on a 10-0 run while forcing the Longhorns into five turnovers during the spurt. Texas ended the drought on Fontenette’s jumper with 2:40 left in the game, as the Longhorns had fallen behind by 16.

In the first half, Middle Tennessee jumped out to a 5-2 lead before the Lady Vols scored 20 of the game’s next 22 points to take a 22-7 lead at the 11:47 mark, setting the tone for the rest of the game. During that stretch, Massengale played a role in 14 of UT’s 20 points, contributing nine points and assisting on a pair of baskets. The freshman standout also had one of her two steals in the run. She had already matched her career high with 11 points by halftime.

Down by as many as 14 early in the second, the Longhorns cut the deficit to six at 59-53 on a three-pointer by Chelsea Bass with 8:50 left in the second half. That would be Texas’ final points for more than six minutes. The Lady Vols answered as Johnson scored on a lay-up to start a run of 10 consecutive points. Tennessee forced Texas into a 30-second shot clock violation with 6:41 left in regulation with furious defensive pressure.

The Blue Raiders responded with an 11-5 run to bring their deficit back within single digits at 27-18 with 7:08 left.

The Lady Vols picked up their shooting early in the second half and began to pull away, taking a 52-38 lead on a Baugh lay-up with 15:31 left in the game.

UT reinforced its dominance, scoring 21 of the opening stanza’s final 27 points, to take a 48-24 halftime lead. Burdick scored all seven of her first-half points in the run as the Lady Vols’ 24-point advantage at intermission was their largest of the season.

Tennessee led 41-32 at halftime thanks to some strong shooting from three-point range as UT knocked down 7-of-13 (54 percent) from beyond the arc in the first 20 minutes. The Big Orange was led by Simmons, who was 3-of-5 with 10 first-half points. Baugh added 11 points in the first half along with five rebounds as the Lady Vols held a 29-18 rebounding edge at intermission. UT expanded a 27-26 lead with 5:19 left to as big as 11 (38-27) with 1:28 left in the first half. Texas had drawn within one on a three-pointer by Fontenette before the Lady Vols went on an 11-1 spurt. The Lady Vols return to action next Sunday at Madison Square Garden in New York as Tennessee takes on #22 DePaul in the Maggie Dixon Classic. Tip-off is set for 1:30 p.m. and will be televised on ESPNU.

NEW YORK - Glory Johnson scored 16 points and Cierra Burdick added 15 to help No. 7 Tennessee beat No. 20 DePaul 84-61 on Sunday in the Maggie Dixon Classic at Madison Square Garden.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - The sixth-ranked Tennessee women’s basketball team used a pivotal 13-0 run late in the second half to propel the Lady Vols to a 67-61 victory over No. 11 Rutgers on Tuesday evening at the Louis Brown Athletic Center.

Shekinna Stricklen added 12 points while Alicia Manning had season-highs of 12 points and 12 rebounds for the Lady Vols (5-2), who saw their 12-point halftime lead cut to 41-37 before using an 15-4 run to take control. Stricklen had six points during the burst.

The sixth-ranked Lady Vols lost all of a 13-point lead and found themselves down by three before taking control with a late run to seal their 67-61 victory over the Scarlet Knights. Sophomore guard Meighan Simmons hit two clutch 3-pointers during the game-changing spurt.

Her layup made it 56-43 with 11:19 left and DePaul (8-2) couldn’t get within single digits the rest of the way. Tennessee coach Pat Summitt was honored during No. 1 Baylor’s 73-59 victory over St. John’s with the Maggie Dixon Courage award. Summitt announced in August that she had been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s. Both the Lady Bears and Red Storm came out of their timeouts to applaud the winningest coach in college basketball. Jasmine Penny scored 16 points and Keisha Hampton added 14 for DePaul. It was the second time Tennessee played in the Classic named for the former Army women’s coach. The Lady Vols beat Rutgers two years ago. The Scarlet Knights had played in all four of the previous Garden events. Army hosted Ohio State at West Point the first year. The 28-year-old Dixon died April 6, 2006, of arrhythmia, probably caused by an enlarged heart. Her death came three weeks after she finished her first season as Army coach. She won the admiration of the academy and all of college basketball for leading Army to its first NCAA berth, where the Cadets lost in the first round to Summitt’s Lady Vols. Tennessee was playing its first game without freshman point guard Ariel Massengale. She had started every game averaging 7.2 points and 5.8 assists. She injured a finger on her left hand while diving for a loose ball at the end of practice on Thursday and will be sidelined for a few weeks.

Trailing 54-51 with 8:33 left, Tennessee (6-2) scored 13 straight points, holding Rutgers without a point for nearly 8 minutes. Vicki Baugh started the burst with a layup and Simmons hit consecutive 3-pointers to give the Lady Vols a 61-54 lead. Taber Spani hit another 3 with 1:52 left to seal the victory. The game featured two Hall of Fame coaches with Pat Summitt and C. Vivian Stringer of Rutgers. The long-time friends have combined for nearly 1,950 victories during their illustrious careers. They stand first and third on the women’s basketball all-time victory list. Summitt received a warm standing ovation from the crowd before the game and shared a long embrace with Stringer. Rutgers players wore warmup shirts that said “We Back Pat” in honor of Summitt’s battle with Alzeheimer’s. The school also presented Tennessee with a collage of Stringer’s favorite photos with Summitt and a commemorative jersey at the half. Tennessee held Rutgers scoreless over a 7:55 span as April Sykes connected from downtown with 38 seconds left. As the Lady Vols squandered free throw opportunities, the Scarlet Knights made things interesting, coming as close as 65-61 before a pair of free throws from Shekinna Stricklen sealed the victory for UT. The Lady Vols got off to a quick start behind Stricklen. The senior preseason All-American had 10 straight points for Tennessee during one stretch. Her jumper with 5:48 left in the half gave the Lady Vols a 33-20 lead. That would be their last points before the half as Rutgers turned up its defensive pressure, scoring the final eight points before the break, including four by Sykes. Rutgers continued the run to start the second half scoring 11 of the first 14 points. Sykes’ layup 2 1/2 minutes in gave Rutgers its first lead of the game at 37-36. Khadijah Rushdan’s basket moments later capped the 19-3 burst. Neither team could pull away. Rutgers built a 54-51 lead on consecutive scores by Rushdan and a layup by Sykes with 8:33 left. That would be the Scarlet Knights’ final points until Sykes hit a 3-pointer with 35.9 seconds left that made it 64-57. Rutgers would get within four on Monique’s Oliver’s lay-in with 12.6 seconds left. Rushdan finished with 16 points. Spani and Simmons each had 13 points for Tennessee.

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Nnemkadi Ogwumike scored a career-high 42 points and dazzled in what might have been the most meaningful home game of her senior season, and No. 4 Stanford beat sixth-ranked Tennessee 97-80 on Tuesday night in one of women’s basketballs best rivalries. The Cardinal extended their school-record home winning streak to 68 games at Maples Pavilion, where a sellout crowd of 7,329 waved red “We Back Pat” rally towels in support of Hall of Fame Lady Vols coach Pat Summitt, who revealed in August she has early onset Alzheimer’s.

Rebekah Gardner scored 15 of her career-high 24 points in the first half for UCLA (5-4), and Thea Lemberger and Markel Walker added 11 points each for the Bruins.

Shekinna Stricklen scored a career-high 27 points to lead the Lady Vols, who had their five-game winning streak snapped.

The win was the fourth straight for the Lady Vols (7-2) and their 18th in 19 meetings alltime against UCLA. It also raised Lady Vols coach Pat Summitt’s career record to 1,078-201.

Glory Johnson added 18 points, six rebounds, two blocks and two steals and Meighan Simmons scored 13 for Tennessee on a night Ogwumike put on a show for national television.

The 59-year-old Hall of Famer, in her 38th season at Tennessee, is the only coach in NCAA men’s and women’s basketball history to reach 1,000 wins.

Ogwumike’s basket that hit the rim and bounced in with 10:59 left gave the Cardinal their first double-digit lead of the game at 65-55 - and they only built on that the rest of the way. Ogwumike’s two free throws with 3:49 left topped her previous best outing of 38 points on April 4, 2010, against Oklahoma.

The Lady Vols never trailed, making their first eight shots, including three 3-pointers, for a 19-8 lead. The Bruins went on a 10-3 run to draw within four points before Tennessee had a 21-9 burst to make it 43-27. The Lady Vols then missed five of six shots, leaving them shooting 19 of 25 (76 percent) and with a 45-34 lead at halftime. Tennessee outscored the Bruins 9-2 to begin the second half for a 54-36 lead. UCLA wasn’t closer than 13 points after that. A layup by Baugh with 7:29 remaining made it 74-52, with Tennessee shooting 32 of 43 (74.4 percent) from the field at that stage. There were only four fouls called and just one free throw in the first half, and 17 fouls and 18 free throws in the game. Tennessee played its third straight game without starting point guard Ariel Massengale, who dislocated her left middle finger during practice earlier this month.

Her sophomore sister, Chiney, added 14 points as the Cardinal shot 53.6 percent. Tennessee shot a sizzling 61.5 percent in the first half to stay within 48-41 at the break before going a cool 37 percent in the second half to finish at 49.1 percent. The Cardinal, riding a streak of four straight Final Fours without a championship, haven’t lost on their home floor at raucous Maples Pavilion since falling to Florida State in the second round of the NCAA tournament on March 19, 2007. Stanford has beaten Tennessee three times during that span - also a 73-69 win on Dec. 22, 2007, and a 67-52 victory on Dec. 19, 2009. There also was that monumental 71-59 victory last Dec. 30 that snapped top-ranked Connecticut’s record 90-game winning streak. Summitt walked onto the court a few minutes before tipoff to a rousing standing ovation from the sellout crowd. Fellow Hall of Famer VanDerveer was shown on the main elevated center-court scoreboard offering her support to Summitt while acknowleding how much Stanford cherishes the rivalry and regular non-conference meetings with the Lady Vols. VanDerveer said Stanford’s program “is behind her 100 percent.” Summitt was not yet on the court with her team to see the presentation. “Pat, we love you, we care about you and we wish you the very best in your battle with Alzheimer’s,” said the video with VanDerveer, who walked to the opposite bench to greet Summitt. They posed for a few photos together. The Cardinal began the game 3 for 13 to 6 of 8 for Tennessee, which jumped out to a 10-3 lead in the opening 2:50. The Lady Vols were whistled for a technical foul at the 11:18 mark of the first half for having six players on the court. Stanford converted both free throws to cut Tennessee’s lead to 16-15. Tennessee freshman guard Ariel Massengale, who had missed last three games nursing a dislocated middle finger on her left hand that required minor surgery, entered the game for the first time with 10:45 left. The Lady Vols beat DePaul and won at both Rutgers and UCLA without her. Massengale practiced Monday in the Bay Area.

KNOXVILLE - Behind double-doubles from seniors Vicki Baugh and Glory Johnson, the seventhranked Tennessee women’s basketball team topped Old Dominion, 90-37, Wednesday evening at Thompson-Boling Arena. The Lady Vols spent their practices since last week’s 17-point loss at No. 4 Stanford focused on regaining the defensive excellence that coach Pat Summitt expects of them. The result was a near perfect effort in a 90-37 win over Old Dominion on Wednesday night. “Tonight, it was about Tennessee,” associate head coach Holly Warlick said. “It was about what was across our chest. We focused on getting better. I think what we did today was indicative of how hard we’ve practiced on the defensive end.” Warlick estimated the team had spent all of two minutes total working on offense during practices on Monday and Tuesday. The coaches and players used the rest of the time to work on rebounding, pass deflections and preventing transition baskets -- all things that haunted them in the 97-80 loss to the Cardinal on Dec. 20. The Lady Vols (8-3) outrebounded the Lady Monarchs 54-32, limited them to 25 percent shooting, forced 23 turnovers and gave up just one basket on the fastbreak. Tennessee now has won 16 straight and 31 of the last 32 against the Lady Monarchs, whose 37 points was the lowest total scored by either team in the 45-game annual series. Tennessee appeared a bit rusty on the offensive end early against Old Dominion (3-10), which scored the first two baskets of the game. The Lady Monarchs were leading 8-7 when Alicia Manning hit a jumper with 16:14 in the first half that launched a 14-2 run to give the Lady Vols control of the game. Ariel Massengale, who hadn’t started a game since dislocating her left middle finger in practice Dec. 8, hit back-to-back 3s in the span of 28 seconds during the stretch. “I was really happy with our play at the very beginning because Tennessee is such a big place to play and it’s really big-time,” Old Dominion guard Jackie Cook said. “I was really proud of how we stepped up and played from the very start. We just couldn’t finish.” Tennessee took a commanding 50-20 halftime lead against Old Dominion by shooting 50 percent from the field and hitting 6 of 12 from 3. The Lady Vols turned the ball over just twice and posted 15 assists before the break. Their improved defense led to balanced offense, with Johnson logging 16 points and 11 rebounds. Baugh had 11 points and 12 rebounds. Meighan Simmons added 12 points, Massengale scored 11, Isabelle Harrison had 10 and Alicia Manning grabbed 15 rebounds. “I like a game like this because we’re working on ourselves,” Johnson said. `We’re working on ourselves as a team and we’re trying to get better and work on our defense. We have so many things that we have to work on outside of the big games. We only have so much time.” Cook led Old Dominion with 13 points, as the Lady Vols managed to frustrate Old Dominion’s top player, Tia Lewis. Lewis entered the game averaging 18.1 points and 9.7 rebounds but finished with eight points, eight rebounds and four fouls. By the end of the game, Tennessee had scored 46 and had 26 points off turnovers. Old Dominion only scored eight points inside and had just a single point off the Lady Vols’ 11 giveaways.

AUBURN, Ala. - The seventh-ranked Tennessee women’s basketball team opened the new year and SEC play with a 73-52 win against Auburn on Sunday afternoon at Auburn Arena, marking UT’s 34th consecutive SEC win dating back to the 2009-10 season. The Lady Vols won going away in a game when their shots weren’t falling. Hounding Auburn into mistakes helped. Meighan Simmons scored 20 points and the Lady Vols (No. 8 ESPN/USA Today, No. 7 AP) closed on a big run. Tennessee (9-3, 1-0 SEC) came into the game last in the league in scoring defense, giving up 63.5 points a game, but forced 25 turnovers and had 12 steals. It was more than enough to earn the Lady Vols a 34th-consecutive SEC win. The Lady Vols closed the game on a 19-6 run to turn a tight contest into a blowout and win for the 27th time in the last 30 meetings with the Tigers (8-6, 0-1). Shekinna Stricklen added 17 points for Tennessee but was disgusted with her 5-of-18 shooting performance. Glory Johnson had 14 points and 13 rebounds and Alicia Manning scored 10 points. Simmons had 13 in the second half. Camille Glymph led Auburn with 21 points, making 5 of 10 from 3-point range. The Lady Vols struggled from the field, shooting just 32 percent (21 of 65) after coming in as the SEC’s second-best shooting team. However, they gave Auburn troubles on the boards and with a trapping defense that often forced the Tigers into hurried shots with the shot clock ticking down. Tennessee also dominated in rebounding 49-31. The Lady Vols turned a 31-29 halftime lead into a 14-point cushion midway through the second half. Johnson also boiled down the essence of Summitt’s halftime message. “Basically, if we don’t get it together, we’re walking home,” she said. “And it’s a long walk. I figured this isn’t the way Tennessee plays. We know how to play and we’re not playing to our standards. When we’re not rebounding and settling for good shots instead of great shots, that’s what happens.” Auburn managed to cut the 14-point deficit in half with Glymph hitting back-to-back 3s to make it 53-46 with 8 minutes to play. Then, Tennessee hit 7 of 8 free throws over the next 3 minutes to spark a 9-0 run and all but put the game away. The Lady Vols went 28 of 31 from the line to help overcome the poor shooting night.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - The #6/7 Lady Vols used a 30-0 run in the first half to run away with a 90-47 victory over Chattanooga on Tuesday night at Thompson-Boling Arena. Tennessee moved to 10-3 with the easy win in its final home non-conference game this season. The Lady Vols will play their third game in five nights on Thursday as Georgia comes to Knoxville for a 7 p.m., tip-off on CSS.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - #6/7 Tennessee pulled away from #16/15 Georgia with a 32-9 run in the second half before 13,721 fans to post a 80-51 victory at Thompson-Boling Arena on Thursday night. Glory Johnson posted a double-double to lead four players in double-figures. For Johnson, her 22-point, 13-rebound effort was her fourth straight double-double I and sixth this season. The freshman Ariel Massengale nearly notched her first-career double-double as she tied her careerhighs with 19 points and 9 assists.

Freshman Ariel Massengale (19 points) and Isabelle Harrison (13 points) each scored career-highs in the win as four Lady Vols scored in double-figures. Glory Johnson tallied a double-double with 10 points and a game-high 13 rebounds. Meighan Simmons also scored 10 points.

The Lady Vols improved to 11-3 overall and 2-0 in the SEC with its fourth win a row. Georgia suffered just its third loss to stand at 12-3 and 1-1 in the league. The loss ended the Lady Bulldogs four-game win streak.

For Johnson, it was her third straight double-double and sixth of the season.

Tennessee dominated the glass, holding a 52-32 edge on the boards led by Johnson. Vicki Baugh also hauled down 10 to go along with eight points. The Lady Vols’ defense was stellar in holding Georgia to just 34.9 percent from the floor including 4-of-21 from 3-point range.

The Lady Vols outrebounded the Lady Mocs, 55-28, while shooting 47.2 percent from the floor. Chattanooga was limited to just 30.4 percent for the game including 20.7 (6-of-29) in the first half. The game marked the return of junior guard Kamiko Williams, who missed the first 12 games recovering from a torn ACL. Williams played 16 minutes and had two points, four assists, two steals and three rebounds. The Lady Mocs (8-4) were led by former Lady Vol Faith Dupree, who had 17 points on 7-of10 shooting. Tennessee led 10-8 with 16:34 left in the first half before that 30-0 run, which made it 40-8 with 5:48 left in the half on a jumper by Cierra Burdick.

Meighan Simmons scored in double-figures for the seventh game in a row with 10. Shekinna Stricklen tallied 12 for her 12th game of the year with 10 or more. Tennessee went on a 24-6 run midway through the second half to take 68-42 lead with 7:16 left on Johnson’s 3-point play. The run expanded to 32-9 on a Cierra Burdick putback with a little more than two minutes left in the game, making it 76-45. The Lady Vols continued to pull away as Johnson converted a fastbreak 3-point play to give UT a 51-36 lead with 13 minutes left in the game. Simmons’ 3-pointer with 11:45 left made it a 17-point bulge at 57-40. Two beautiful fastbreak give-and-gos between Stricklen and Johnson in the final minute gave Tennessee a 36-27 lead at intermission. Massengale had 15 points in the first half to lead all scorers as the Lady Vols shot 52 percent. Down by as many as 11, Georgia cut the deficit to five on a 3-pointer by Meredith Mitchell with 2:05 left in the first half causing the Lady Vols to call timeout. Massengale continued her assault on the hoop with a putback lay-up with 3:51 left in the first half as Tennessee took a 30-20 lead. Vicki Baugh’s first basket of the game with 5:41 left in the first half put the Lady Vols up 28-19. Tennessee opened the game strong, taking a 20-11 lead in the first 8:13 as Massengale made her first four shots including two 3-pointers. The Lady Vols return to the hardwood on Sunday as Tennessee travels to Arkansas for a 3:30 p.m., match-up that will air on ESPNU and can be heard on the Lady Vol Network.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Shekinna Stricklen made sure she went out in style in her last performance in her home state. Stricklen scored 19 points, and Glory Johnson recorded her fifth straight double-double, as Tennessee (No. 7 ESPN/USA Today, No. 6 AP) routed Arkansas 69-38 on Sunday. The win was the 36th straight in Southeastern Conference play for the Lady Volunteers (123, 3-0), who opened the game with a 25-3 run and never looked back. Tennessee hasn’t lost an SEC game since a 53-50 loss at Georgia on Jan. 21, 2010, and it was in no jeopardy of doing so while holding the Razorbacks to a season-low point total. Arkansas, meanwhile, remained winless in SEC play. The Razorbacks (11-4, 0-3) hit only 3 of 30 shots in the first half, and their 10-of-55 shooting for the game (18.1 percent) was the worst in school history. Stricklen, who starred in high school in Morrilton, Ark., scored what was a career-high 26 points in a win at Arkansas last season, and the Lady Volunteers’ leading scorer was equally impressive this time around. The senior scored six points early as Tennessee opened with a 14-0 run, including one of her two 3-pointers for the game. She finished 8 of 12 from the field and had eight rebounds in front on a sizeable and vocal cheering section behind the Tennessee bench. The strong effort came after Stricklen had shot just 32 percent over her last four games. Stricklen’s performance was hardly the only dominant one. Johnson, who entered the game only four rebounds short of 1,000 for her career, didn’t need long to reach that mark against the Razorbacks (11-4, 0-3). She grabbed her fourth rebound and scored on a putback late in the first half to put Tennessee up 31-8 -- finishing with 15 points and 14 rebounds. The game was well out of hand at that point. Arkansas didn’t score until Lyndsey Harris’ 3-pointer 6:24 into the game, and it opened 1 of 19 from the field. Harris, who finished with 14 points, hit two first-half 3-pointers, and the Razorbacks’ only other basket was a putback by Quistelle Wiliams.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - A’dia Mathies drove the lane and scored in traffic with 4.2 seconds left to finish with a career-high 34 points and No. 9 Kentucky beat No. 6 Tennessee 61-60 Thursday night to snap the Lady Volunteers’ 36-game Southeastern Conference winning streak. With Kentucky trailing 60-57, Mathies followed her own shot to cut it to one with 46 seconds left. After Tennessee (12-4, 3-1) was called for a charge and Kentucky (15-2, 4-0) used a timeout, Mathies took the ball at halfcourt, dribbled into the lane and hit a 7-foot floater off the glass in the paint. Kamiko Williams drove the length of the floor, but missed an off-balance 16-footer as time expired. Tennessee rallied from 12 points down with 7:46 left to take a lead, but lost for the first time in the SEC since falling 53-50 at Georgia on Jan. 21, 2010. Keyla Snowden added 11 points to help Kentucky win its first four games in conference play for the first time in history to go with 15 straight at home. Glory Johnson scored 17 points, Vicki Baugh 16 and Shekinna Stricklen 11 for Tennessee. Kentucky led 50-38 off two free throws by Mathies with 7:46 left when Tennessee used a 14-2 rally to tie it. Meighan Simmons and Stricklen hit 3s, while Ariel Massengale’s threepoint play made it 54-all. Then, after Mathies made two more free throws, Stricklen hit a layup, Kentucky’s Amber Smith threw a pass away that led to a free throw by Johnson and Mathies fell and lost the ball that started Tennessee’s 3-on-0 break that ended with a layup by Baugh to give the Lady Vols a 59-56 with 2:06 left. Bria Goss made one of two free throws for the Wildcats and Johnson hit the second of two attempts to put Tennessee back ahead 60-57. Goss then missed a 3 that would’ve tied it, but grabbed her own rebound and Kentucky got another possession. Mathies scored on a putback to cut it to 60-59 and Stricklen was whistled for a charge with 28 seconds to play, setting up the final possession.

Arkansas’ previous worst shooting half was a 3-of-26 performance against Wichita State in 1981. Its previous worst game was 8 of 41 against Louisiana Tech in 1978.

The last time these two teams played in the SEC Tournament, the Lady Vols routed the Wildcats by 25. This one looked to be different from the start between the two schools that have many ties on the coaching staff on both sides.

The Razorbacks entered the game shooting just 38 percent as a team for the season. The previous worst performance this season was a 17-of-53 effort against Florida State in November, but they managed to win that game 55-52.

Tennessee used a 10-2 run midway through the first half to take a 20-18 lead before both teams went cold for the next five minutes, combining to miss 25 consecutive shots and commit 12 turnovers before Mathies grabbed an offensive rebound and scored on a putback to end the cold snap.

They had no such chance against the suffocating defense of Tennessee, which held Arkansas’ leading scorer C’eira Ricketts to two points on 1-of-11 shooting. Harris didn’t fare much better at 4 of 14. Johnson joined an elite group of Lady Vols to reach the 1,000/1,000 club. Also achieving 1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds in their UT careers were Chamique Holdsclaw, Sheila Frost and Tamika Catchings.

The Lady Vols’ struggles continued. Alicia Manning hit the second of two free throws, but a bucket by Snowden gave Kentucky a 25-21 halftime lead as Tennessee finished the half with 16 straight misses and eight turnovers. Johnson’s 8-footer in the lane on the team’s first shot of the second half ended the span of nearly 11 minutes without a field goal, but Kentucky would still build a 50-38 lead behind Mathies and Snowden before Tennessee’s furious rally.

Meighan Simmons chipped in with 10 points and Ariel Massengale set her career-high in assists with 12 to go along with six points. The 12 assists tie for the fifth-most in Tennessee history. That mark was first accomplished by Associate Head Coach Holly Warlick in 1980. Christina Foggie led all scorers with 28 points for the Commodores (14-3, 2-2). Stephanie Holzer added 14. After a very tight game for the first 25 minutes, where neither team led by double-figures, the Lady Vols turned up the defensive intensity and created offensive opportunities. Tennessee had 14 steals and shot 52.9 from the floor. It was the third time this season, Tennessee shot 50 percent from the floor. Johnson tied her career-high with five steals. The Lady Vols limited the NCAA’s best 3-point shooting team to just 31.3 from beyond the arc (5-of-16). Vanderbilt came into the game making 44.1 percent of its shots from trifecta land. As part of the 21-4 run, the Lady Vols used a 10-0 run to break open the game midway through the second half. Tenacious defense helped create easy offensive opportunities for UT. After neither team led by double-figures for the first 28 minutes of action, the Lady Vols ballooned to a 15-point lead with 10:26 left in the game. A Stricklen 3-pointer with 14 minutes left in the second half, gave the Lady Vols a 51-43 advantage after the teams had played even early in the second half. Tennessee then took the first double-figure lead of the game on a pair of Baugh free throws with 11:44 left. Just seconds later Johnson stole the ball and layed in home for a 57-45 lead for Tennessee. On the next possession, Simmons stole another pass and Massengale finished 10 consecutive points for the Lady Vols. The lead ballooned to 20 on a Baugh jump shot with 4:30 left, giving the Lady Vols a 77-57 lead. Tennessee held a 39-36 advantage at halftime thanks to 50 percent shooting from the floor (16-of-32) with eight points apiece from Baugh and Johnson. The half featured three ties and team led by double-figures. Johnson went down with an apparent shoulder injury with 1:49 left in the half as she got tangled up with Elan Brown going after a loose ball. After halftime, she returned with vengeance and as she racked up the double-double. A Briana Bass 3-pointer followed by a Baugh lay-up gave the Lady Vols a 35-26 lead with 3:34 left in the first half. Vanderbilt came right back with consecutive 3-pointers by Foggie to cut the UT lead to 35-32 with 2:49 left. Johnson’s putback with 6:30 left in the first half gave Tennessee the first lead larger than six points in the first half, 25-19. That finished a mini 6-0 run for UT.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - In a physical game that saw both teams playing without key players due to injury, #9 Tennessee battled to a 65-56 victory over LSU on Thursday night before 13,107 at Thompson-Boling Arena. The Lady Vols moved to 14-4 overall and 5-1 in the SEC. The Lady Tigers, coached by former UT star Nikki Caldwell, fell to 13-5 and 4-2 in the league. Meighan Simmons led Tennessee with 19 points and Cierra Burdick netted a career-high tying 15, for her highest scoring game in more than a month. An ailing Glory Johnson played just 24 minutes and scored 10 points. Shekinna Stricklen missed the first game of her career with a right knee sprain. Vicki Baugh pulled down a season-high 14 rebounds as the Lady Vols outrebounded LSU, 45-39. Courtney Jones led LSU with 16 points and Adrienne Webb added 12. LSU’s leading scorer LaSondra Barrett (12.5 ppg) was held to her second-lowest scoring game of the season with six before fouling out. In a very physical and tight game, neither team led by double-figures the entire game and neither team had a lead by more than two possessions for the first 30:30. The game was tied on 11 occasions before the Lady Vols ended the game on a 16-7 run over the final 6:22 to secure the win. Tennessee used a 10-0 run to take a 47-39 lead with 9:30 left in the second half. Back-toback fastbreak lay-ups by Simmons and Johnson followed by a Cierra Burdick jumper put the Lady Vols ahead 45-39 with 10:34 left in the second half. But LSU retaliated with its own 10-2 run to tie the game at 49 all with 6:40 left in regulation. Burdick ended that spurt with a jump shot to regain a Lady Vols lead, 51-49 with 6:20 remaining. The lead moved to 56-51 thanks to late successful free-throw shooting. Tennessee had a stretch of making 7-of-8 foul shots late in the game after starting 6-of-15 from the charity stripe. Fastbreak lay-ups by Johnson and Ariel Massengale 19 seconds apart put Tennessee up 6053 with 2:40 left in the game. Tennessee finished the game off with free throws in the final minutes to secure UT’s 28th straight home SEC win. LSU and Tennessee stood tied 26 all at intermission with solid defense being played by both teams. The Lady Vols were limited to 9-of-28 (32.1 percent) from the floor while the Lady Tigers shot 11-of-32 (34.4). Simmons led all scorers with eight points in the first half. Just 2.9 seconds before halftime, LSU guard Destini Hughes suffered a leg injury was the taken off the court in a wheelchair and did not return. The Lady Tigers were also without point guard Jeanne Kenney, who suffered a concussion in the first minutes of the game. Massengale gave the Lady Vols their first lead of the game since a Simmons 3-pointer opened the scoring, as the freshman’s lay-up put UT up 14-13 with 10:16 left in the first half. LSU quickly responded with a Barrett trey to regain the lead. That lead was short lived as Tennessee used a 13-5 run to take a 24-18 lead with 5:15 left in the first half. LSU came into the game with the nation’s second-best field goal percentage defense (30.3) and third in scoring defense (47.5). The Lady Tigers limited Tennessee to 37.5 from the floor. The Lady Vols defense was even more stiff in holding LSU to 34.4 from the floor.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Skylar Diggins matched a season high with 27 points Monday night and No. 2 Notre Dame beat No. 7 Tennessee 72-44, holding the Vols to their lowest scoring output in school history. Devereaux Peters had 16 points and 16 rebounds for the Irish (20-1), who have won 17 straight. Tennessee (14-5) got 13 points from Meighan Simmons, but shot just 27.9 percent in the lopsided loss. Notre Dame was 0-20 all-time against the Vols before a 73-59 victory in the NCAA regional finals last March in Dayton, Ohio. The Irish haven’t lost since Nov. 20 to top-ranked Baylor and have now beaten both UConn and Tennessee on their home floor this season after toppling both in last year’s NCAA tournament. Leading at the half, the Irish jumped out early in the second as Diggins sank a 3-pointer and Peters had three inside baskets in an 11-3 run that opened up a 39-21 lead three minutes in. Tennessee continued to miss on everything, from both the field and the freethrow line. Diggins made a nice strip of an inside pass, dribbled the length of the court, passed to Peters and then got it back for a layup to make it 44-26 with just over 14 minutes left. Then after picking up her third foul, Diggins hit her fourth 3-pointer of the game to make it a 21-point lead. Diggins was 10 of 17 from the field and 5 for 7 on 3-pointers. After Tennessee closed to within 16 with about seven minutes to go, the Irish went on one final run to put it away. Kayla McBride added 17 points for the Irish. The Vols made just 17 of 61 field-goal attempts and were only 7 for 16 from the free-throw line. Rebounding, including eight early offensive caroms, kept the Vols close in the early stages of the game because they could not make a shot. They missed 14 of their first 17 attempts from the floor and finished the first half 7 for 35 (20 percent). And the poor shooting extended to the line, where the Vols were only 4 for 10. The field-goal percentage and total points were first-half lows for the Vols this season. McBride, showing an ability to break for the basket, had nine straight Notre Dame points at one juncture and scored 11 in the first half. Diggins ended up with 10 at the half, hitting two free throws with 2 seconds left to put the Irish up 28-18. Tennessee’s leading scorer, Shekinna Stricklen, who missed the previous game against LSU with a sprained knee, returned to the lineup and managed five points - five points under her average. And Vols guard Taber Spani, who has been sidelined with a bone bruise in her left knee since Dec. 26, was also able to play. Meighan Simmons was the only Lady Vol to score in double-figures, recording a team-high 13 points. Glory Johnson chipped in nine points and nine rebounds, while Vicki Baugh tallied eight points and six boards.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The #7/9 Tennessee women’s basketball team got back on the winning track with a convincing 86-56 victory at Alabama. Shekinna Stricklen led four players in double-figures with 14. The Lady Vols improved to 15-5 overall with a 6-1 mark in the SEC. The Crimson Tide dropped to 10-11 and remain winless in the league at 0-7. The Lady Vols unveiled a new starting lineup featuring Glory Johnson, Cierra Burdick, Briana Bass, Vicki Baugh and Ariel Massengale and it proved successful. Johnson tallied 13 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Burdick added nine while both Bass and Baugh tallied eight. Massengale was a sensational distributor handing out 11 assists -- one shy of her career-high. Coming off the bench, Kamiko Williams and Isabelle Harrison each chipped in with 10. Kyra Crosby led Alabama with 15 points in defeat. She was Alabama’s lone double-figure scorer. The Tide was held to just 1-of-14 from 3-point territory. “We were happy with the pace we played,” Tennessee associate head coach Holly Warlick said. “Obviously, we wanted to score. We wanted an up-tempo game. I thought the first half, Alabama hung tough with us.” Tennessee jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the game’s first 2 minutes and was comfortably ahead for most of the opening half. The Vols led by 15 points at the break. “To have a good start, I think that helps our team a lot, gives us a lot of confidence and warns people for next time,” Johnson said. The Vols had only four turnovers compared to Alabama’s eight. Tennessee also won the rebounding battle 24-17. “What I thought happened in the first half is if we’d made some free throws, maybe kept the score a little bit closer, it might’ve been a different type basketball game,” Alabama coach Wendell Hudson said. “But from the effort standpoint, Tennessee is a very good basketball team, and I thought we competed.” Tennessee scored 25 points off 22 turnovers, including 11 steals. The Vols shot 45 percent from the field (32-of-71) but just 21 percent on 3-point attempts (4-of-19). Alabama’s performance from long range was much worse; the Tide went 1-for-14.

ATHENS, Ga. - After leading by just one point at halftime, #7/9 Tennessee outscored #17/15 Georgia in the second half, 38-22, to claim a 67-50 victory at Stegman Coliseum on Sunday evening. The Lady Vols (16-5, 7-1 SEC) scored the first 11 points of the second half to take a 40-28 lead and never looked back. The closest the Lady Dogs (16-6, 5-4) got for the remainder of the game was eight points. Shekinna Stricklen led all scorers with 24 points. Ariel Massengale was Tennessee’s only other double-figure scorer with 16. Georgia was led by Meredith Mitchell (13) and Jasmine Hassell (11). The Lady Vols’ defensive was stifling as it limited Georgia to just 28.8 from the floor (17-of-59) and a 2-of-18 from 3-point range. Taber Spani returned to action and scored three points. Glory Johnson was the top rebounder with eight to go along with five points. Stricklen keyed that 11-0 run to start the second half as she scored six points in the spurt that started with a Meighan Simmons 3-pointer just 15 seconds into the second half. Tennessee led 29-28 at halftime after Georgia cut its deficit to one just before halftime on a layup by Erika Ford with 30 seconds left in the half. The Lady Vols built a 19-11 lead on a 3-pointer by Spani with 10:50 left in the half, but Georgia answered with the next six points. To get back to within two at 19-17. The Lady Vols return to action on Thursday as South Carolina comes to Thompson-Boling Arena for a 7 p.m. Tip. That game will air on CSS and can be heard on the Lady Vol Network.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - The #8 Lady Vols saw their 28-game home conference win streak come to an end as South Carolina handed Tennessee a 64-60 defeat. The Gamecocks finished the game on a run 9-0 run to claim their first-ever win in Knoxville after being 0-20 all-time. Markeshia Grant scored a career-high 27 points including seven 3-pointers for USC (18-5, 7-3 SEC). The Lady Vols (16-6, 7-2) were led by Glory Johnson, who had 13 points. Ariel Massengale added 12. All-time USC was 2-44 against the Lady Vols. The last time South Carolina beat Tennessee was on Jan. 23, 1980, a 56-52 USC win at home. The last time Tennessee dropped a home SEC game was on Feb. 14, 2008, a 78-62 defeat at the hands of #7 LSU. Ieasia Walker put home a lay-up with 2:15 left to take the lead for good, 61-60. Walker then knocked down one of two free throws with 1:00 left to make it a 62-60 game. The Gamecocks forced a jumpball and took possession with 45 seconds remaining. After Grant missed a 3-pointer with 21 seconds left La’Keisha Sutton grabbed an offensive rebound. Sutton then knocked down two free throws with 12 seconds left to seal the win. Those free throws were just the fourth and fifth made foul shots for South Carolina, which started 3-12 from the free-throw line in the game. After being down by five, the Lady Vols rallied to tie the game at 46 all on a Shekinna Stricklen layup with 10:23 left in the second half. A Taber Spani 3-pointer -- Tennessee’s first trey of the game -- with 9:57 left gave the Lady Vols a 49-46 wrapping an 8-0 run. A Kamiko Williams 3-point play extended the advantage to 52-48 with 8:48 left. Tennessee took the first lead of more than five points in the game on a Williams’ jumpshot with 5:00 left in the game. That put the Lady Vols up 57-50. USC rallied back as Grant nailed her seven 3-pointer of the game with 3:41 left to cut the Gamecocks deficit to 57-55. That added to Grant’s career-high, but was her first basket in 10 minutes. South Carolina trimmed the lead to one at 60-59 after a steal by Ashley Bruner and a lay-in by Aleighsa Welch with 2:49 left. The game was close throughout with neither team leading by seven points all night. Tennessee didn’t score for the final 3:38 of the game on a Johnson lay-up. The Gamecocks went on an 8-0 run over a two-minute span to take a 43-38 lead with 14:28 left in the second half. South Carolina held a narrow 29-28 lead at halftime thanks to 15 points from Grant, who tallied 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting. The remainder of the USC squad shot just 7-of-24 from the floor (29.1 percent). Massengale had nine points in the first stanza to lead all Lady Vols. Tennessee did not have a steal in the game and made just one 3-pointer, that Spani trey in the second half.

KNOXVILLE - No. 8 Tennessee started a new homecourt conference win streak on Sunday afternoon with an 82-61 victory over Auburn. Glory Johnson and Ariel Massengale led all scorers with 14 points each. Johnson also grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds and had four blocks for her ninth double-double of the season, while Massengale added four assists and four steals. Shekinna Stricklen posted a double-double as well, her third of the season and first since Nov. 27 against Baylor, with 11 points and 10 rebounds. UT moves to 17-6 overall and 8-2 in the SEC while Auburn lost for the fourth time in five games and fell to 11-13 and 3-8 in the league. Tennessee has won 14 games in a row at home vs. Auburn, dating to 1989. After trailing very early in the game, Tennessee made easy work of Auburn, pulling away in the second half. A layup by Vicki Baugh with 4:05 left in the first half gave the Lady Vols their first double-figure lead of the afternoon (38-27) and they continued to hold a margin of at least eight for the remainder of the game. Five consecutive points by Massengale gave UT a 56-39 lead with 13:24 left in the game. That was Tennessee’s largest lead to that point. Auburn cut the deficit to 11 at 58-47 on a lay-up by Morgan Jennings with 9:57 left, but Massengale answered with her own hoop with 9:30 left in the game. Hasina Muhammad’s lay-up with 6:53 left cut the Auburn deficit to eight at 61-53 but Meighan Simmons came right back to regain a 10-point and Johnson’s putback expanded the lead back to 12 at 65-53. A Lady Vols’ 11-0 run late in the game put the contest out of reach. Shekinna Stricklen’s lay-up off a feed from Massengale ballooned UT’s lead to 72-53 with 4:27 left. A Taber Spani 3-pointer with 5:00 left in the first half gave the Lady Vols a 34-25 lead. Tennessee continued to pull away as the Lady Vols took a 44-31 lead into halftime on an Massengale lay-up with 1:45 left in the half. Auburn held an advantage as large as five points early on, but Tennessee took the lead for good at 16-14 on an Alicia Manning lay-up with 13:54 left in the first half. A jumper by Spani with 12:15 left finished a 7-0 run for the Lady Vols and gave them an 18-14 lead. The Lady Vols had their 28-game home SEC win streak come to an end on Thursday night as South Carolina rallied late to beat UT, 64-60. In that game, Tennessee did not record a steal. Against Auburn, the Lady Vols came away with 13 thefts. The Lady Vols head to Vanderbilt for a Thursday night game at 9 p.m. ET. That game will air on CSS and can be heard on the Lady Vol Network.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The No. 11 Lady Vols trailed most of the night, but took a brief lead in the second half before No. 25 Vanderbilt regained control and posted a 93-79 victory at Memorial Gym. Four Commodores scored in double-figures as Tiffany Clarke had 23 and Christina Foggie netted 22. Stephanie Holzer tallied 19 while Jessica Lister had 19 points and 13 assists. Vanderbilt moved to 19-5 overall and 7-4 in the SEC. The Lady Vols (17-7, 8-3 SEC) were led by Meighan Simmons, who had 20 points. Glory Johnson scored 19 before fouling out with six minutes left in the game. Shekinna Stricklen also scored 17. The game marked the second time Tennessee allowed 90 points this season, as the Lady Vols gave up 97 to Stanford on Dec. 20, 2011. It was the most points ever scored by Vandy against Tennessee as the Commodores shot 55 percent for the game and 58 percent in the second half alone. Vanderbilt used a 17-2 run after the Lady Vols climbed all the way out of a 12-point hole to take a commanding 69-56 lead with 7:49 left in the game on a Clarke lay-up. The Commodores lead ballooned to 14 points as Foggie’s fastbreak lay-up put Vanderbilt up 80-66. After being down by as many as 12 points, Tennessee rallied to take a short-lived lead at 54-52 with 11:42 left in the second half on a Johnson jumper. Cierra Burdick had tied the game at 52 all with 12:33 left in the game. The Lady Vols lost to Vanderbilt for the first time in eight games and just the second time in the last 25 meetings dating to 2001-02. Tennessee returns to action in a rematch with Kentucky on Monday night at 7 p.m. The Wildcats handled the Lady Vols their first conference loss of the season, 61-60 on Jan. 12.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - The No. 13 Lady Vols gained a measure of revenge on Monday night as they handed No. 7 Kentucky their largest defeat of the season as Tennessee routed the Wildcats 91-54 in front of 14,807 at Thompson-Boling Arena. The game served as the focal point for Live Pink, Bleed Orange an initiative as part of the “Play 4 Kay” raising awareness for breast cancer in honor of the late Kay Yow. The win moved the Lady Vols record to 18-7 overall and 9-3 in the SEC. Kentucky dropped its second game in a row after losing to LSU last Sunday and stands at 21-4 overall and 10-2 in the league.

STARKVILLE, Miss. - #10 Tennessee flexed its defensive muscle with a 57-41 win at Mississippi State. Shekinna Stricklen posted a double-double with 22 points and 12 rebounds. Cierra Burdick was the Lady Vols only other double-figure scorer as she tallied 10. Tennessee (19-7, 10-3 SEC) limited Mississippi State (14-12, 4-9) to just 13 points in the first half and a paltry 23.5 field goal percentage. Kendra Grant led MSU with 17 and Porsha Grant tallied 15.

Meighan Simmons tallied a season-high 25 points. Shekinna Stricklen scored 18. Glory Johnson added 10 and grabbed seven rebounds.

“We didn’t get a lot of transition looks because we were turning the ball over,” Tennessee associate head coach Holly Warlick said. “If we learned anything it’s that we’ve got to take care of the ball more.”

The Lady Vols shot a sensational 59.0 from the floor and held Kentucky to just 33.3 from the floor. Tennessee outrebouned UK, 45-27.

Stricklen was 8-for-18 from the field and 5 of 6 from the free-throw line after a slow start.

Back on Jan. 12, Kentucky edged the Lady Vols, 61-60 in Lexington to take the lead in the SEC. Tennessee inched back to within a game of the league lead with Monday’s victory. Kentucky’s leading scorer A’dia Mathies tallied 12. Back in January, she netted a career-high 34. The Cats’ top scorer on Monday was Bria Goss, who had 15. The Lady Vols’ lead expanded to 28 on a putback layup by Johnson with 11:51 left in the game as the onslaught continued. The lead ballooned to 40 on a Kamiko Williams jumper with 4:32 left in the game. Tennessee dominated the first half, leading 46-28 at intermission behind 12 points apiece from Simmons and Stricklen. The Lady Vols shot 60 percent from the floor while holding the Wildcats to 30.3 from the floor and 1-10 from 3-point range. The Lady Vols went on a 14-0 run over 2:12 late in the first half to build a 39-18 advantage with 4:39 left in the first half. Vicki Baugh, Simmons and Williams each had four points in the spurt. After being down by 12, Kentucky cut the deficit to five at 21-16 on a give-and-go lay-up from Bernisha Pinkett with 9:20 left. But the Lady Vols responded. Tennessee came out strong building an 18-6 lead after an Ariel Massengale lay-up with 13:36 left in the first half. The Lady Vols made eight of their first 10 shots including Stricklen starting 3-of-3. Kentucky began the game just 2-of-16 from the floor. The Lady Vols return to action on Thursday night as Tennessee plays at Mississippi State at 9 p.m. The game will air on CSS and can be heard on the Lady Vol Network.

“I didn’t have my composure,” Stricklen said. “I was rushing and playing at a fast pace, not my own pace. My teammates really helped me get it back under control.” The win pulls Tennessee even with No. 7 Kentucky atop the SEC standings after the Wildcats’ loss tonight to Alabama. Tennessee has won three of its last four games and five of its last seven. Cierra Burdick added 10 points and Glory Johnson grabbed 15 rebounds for Tennessee. “It wasn’t the prettiest game,” Warlick said. “It was a grind for us and we found a way to win.” As poorly as Tennessee shot, Mississippi State shot even worse. The Bulldogs shot only 24.2 percent (16 of 66) from the floor and trailed by double digits the entire second half. “We forced enough turnovers and I felt like we really scrapped,” Mississippi State coach Sharon Fanning-Otis said. “But we missed some shots and you have to rebound the ball defensively. You’ve got to get some put-backs and some and-ones, and we’re just not there yet.” The Bulldogs are now 0-33 all-time versus the Lady Vols. “Our defense played hard enough for us to win the ballgame,” Fanning-Otis said. “They have awfully good athletes, with great size, at all positions.” Both teams struggled to find offense, starting the game a combined 1-of-21 from the floor. The Lady Vols led 22-13 at the half. “We played rushed,” Warlick said. “Once we settled down and got into a rhythm I thought we did well.” KThe Lady Vols continue their two-game swing in Mississippi, travelling to Ole Miss for a Sunday game at 2 p.m. ET. The title airs on the SEC Network and can be heard on the Lady Vol Network.

OXFORD, Miss. - The size and strength of Tennessee (No. 10 ESPN/USA Today, No. 13 AP) ended up trumping the speed of Mississippi for a 66-56 victory on Sunday. With Tennessee (20-7, 11-3 Southeastern Conference) struggling to connect from 3-point range, the inside duo of Glory Johnson and Shekinna Stricklen bailed out the Lady Volunteers, who have struggled with their effort and energy level from game to game. Johnson and Stricklen both went 5 of 9 from the floor and combined to score 25 points. Johnson, who finished with 13 points, also grabbed eight rebounds for the Lady Volunteers. “I thought Ole Miss really focused on taking away our inside game early. Credit to Glory and (Stricklen), they kept working,” Tennessee assistant coach Holly Warlick said. “They probably weren’t getting as many touches as we normally get, and that’s due to Ole Miss, but I thought we kept working hard, and when we needed a basket inside, we got them the ball. They made plays.” In a game that Tennessee never led by more than 12 points, Warlick talked about why the Lady Volunteers struggled to put away an Ole Miss team (12-15, 2-12) that played its most complete game of the season. “We did some good things and then we turn the ball over at crucial times and they took advantage of it,” Warlick said. “We didn’t get to loose balls that we normally do, and I thought Ole Miss was capitalizing on our mistakes. We needed buckets, we needed stops and we got them, but we let somebody score 21 points. We were just too inconsistent.” Valencia McFarland was the Lady Rebel who finished with 21 points. The point guard, who was 4 for 6 from 3-point range, was praised by Johnson following the game for her effort and her ability to lead her team. “She’s really quick. She was a player that her team needed to play well to be successful, and she did her job,” Johnson said. “She made it hard on our guards, and when she drove and we went to help, she was able to dish and find her teammates. She played a great game.” Tennessee led 32-21 at the half. The Lady Rebels cut into that lead early in the second half with a 13-6 run that brought them within four points, 38-34, at the 14:27 mark. Ole Miss got within four points twice more but never got any closer as Tennessee withstood the Lady Rebels’ best punches with inside buckets from Johnson and Stricklen as well as a key 3-pointer by Stricklen with just under 7 minutes left. Tennessee has won three straight games since falling out of the Top 10 last week and leads the SEC by a half-game over Kentucky, which hosts Vanderbilt on Monday night. The Lady Vols return home to host Arkansas on Thursday at 7 p.m. The game airs on Fox Sports South and can be heard on the Lady Vol Network. UT closes the regular-season vs. Florida on Sunday, Feb. 26 in a game that airs on ESPNU with a 3:30 p.m., tip-off.
