Noting Georgia Tidbits

 Georgia visits UT with a 12-2 overall and 1-0 SEC record on the 2011-12 season.  The Lady Bulldogs opened SEC play with a 67-57 win over Arkansas on Sunday.  Jasmine Hassell’s has been leading the UGA charge. In Georgia’s last 10 games, she is contributing 16.1 ppg while hitting 63.6 percent FG.  She is joined in extra digit scoring by Khaalidah Miller (13.5), Jasmine James (10.8), and Anne Marie Armstrong (10.8).

The 4-1-1 on Georgia  Before facing Tennessee, Jasmine Hassell’s teamhigh 19 points led No. 17 Georgia to a 67-57 victory over the Arkansas on Jan. 1.  For the third straight game, four Lady Bulldogs put up double-digit points.  Anne Marie Armstrong scored 15 points, while Khaalidah Miller and Meredith Mitchell scored 12 points apiece.  After trailing Arkansas for the first 10 minutes, back-to-back three-pointers from Erika Ford and Armstrong tied the game at 18-18 with 10:07 left in the period. 

Our Last Meeting with Georgia  The fourth-ranked Tennessee Lady Vols advanced to its 20th SEC Tournament championship game with an 82-58 victory over Georgia on March 5, 2011, at Bridgestone Arena.  UT, the tournament’s No. 1 seed, jumped out to a 16-2 lead on the Lady Bulldogs, who missed their first 14 field goal attempts, and received and 18-point, five-assist performance from freshman point guard Meighan Simmons en route to the semifinal victory.  The win gave the Lady Vols 20, 30-win seasons under head coach Pat Summitt and the opportunity to win their 15th SEC Tournament title.  Tennessee’s mix-and-match defenses challenged Georgia from the start and the Big Orange raced out to a 9-0 lead on a leaner from junior Shekinna Stricklen at the 16:09 mark in the first half.  The Lady Bulldogs didn’t make a field goal until Khaalidah Miller buried a three-pointer with 9:52 left until halftime to make the score 16-5.  The Lady Vols followed with a scoring drought of

their own.  Senior Angie Bjorklund hit a jumper at 6:47 to stop the drought. Under 30 seconds later Bjorklund buried a three to put the Lady Vols up 21-9 6:10 before the break.  UT took a 35-22 lead into the half.  Junior Glory Johnson carried the Lady Vols in the second stanza scoring 12 points and grabbing seven boards in the second 20 and finishing with 14 and 9.  Bjorklund also reached double figures with 10 points.

It was Fitting  When UT coach Pat Summitt claimed her 1,000th career win in 2009, it was only fitting that she earn the win over her toughest coaching rival -- Georgia’s Andy Landers.  Summitt and Landers first started squaring off in preseason exhibition games when Landers was the coach at nearby Roane State Community College in Harriman, Tenn.  Summitt and her Lady Vols have a number of great rivalries but none can compare with the success of Landers and his Lady Bulldogs against UT.  Only seven programs have ever registered doubledigit wins over Tennessee in the modern era -Louisiana Tech 17, Georgia 15, Connecticut 13, LSU, Texas and Tennessee Tech 12 and Auburn 10.  Landers has been onboard at Georgia for all 15 wins and leads the pack of winning coaches in these games. UConn’s Geno Auriemma has 13 wins over UT; as head coach Leon Barmore had 12 at La Tech (also 5 as co-head coach); Jody Conradt claimed 11 wins over the Lady Vols while at Texas and Mary Nell Meadors grabbed 10 wins at Tennessee Tech.  Over the 43 years of the Tennessee-Georgia rivalry, at least one team has been ranked in every game (the polls weren’t invented yet in 1969) and both teams were ranked 47 times.  This will mark the 45th time the Lady Vols will go into the game as the higher ranked team.

Go Figure  In the last 10 meetings between UT and UGA, the games have either been defensive struggles (53-50, 58-55 and 52-41), meetings between racehorses (94-85 and 89-79), blowouts (77-44, 73-43, 82-58) or somewhere in between (72-63 and 73-57) .  UT has won 15 of the last 17 dating back to 2001.  Georgia disrupted the Tennessee streak with a 6866 overtime victory in the 2004 SEC Tournament when the Lady Bulldogs upset the #1-ranked Lady Vols in the SEC semis, 68-66 and 2010 in Athens, 53-50.

Georgia Series This marks the 58th meeting between the two schools dating back to the 1968-69 season with Tennessee leading 42-15. Tennessee recognizes the 1969 meeting with Joan Cronan as UT’s coach while Georgia does not thus the difference in records. In the 21st century, UT leads the series 15-3. The Lady Vols held a 14-5 advantage over Georgia in the 1990s. UGA is one of three schools (others are UConn, Duke and Texas) to defeat UT at least twice in the Thompson-Boling Arena.

From the Chalk Board

MUST Control the Glass  Tennessee had managed to do a better job on the boards since Miami controlled that stat line in game two of the season.  Then in the blink of an eye, the Lady Vols lost the rebounding battle in back-to-back games against UCLA and Stanford.  The Cardinal controlled the boards 35-29 and scored 14 second chance points.  One game earlier, for just the second time this season, an opponent led UT on the boards when UCLA grabbed a 31-28 edge on Dec. 17.  In UT’s defense, the Lady Vols shot 69.2 percent from the field for the game.  The Lady Vols held a decisive rebounding edge over #1-ranked Baylor grabbing 56 rebounds to the Lady Bears’ 42.  UT followed that up with a 53-30 rebounding night against MTSU, a 49-38 display against a tall Texas lineup and a similar line-up against DePaul, 45-42. It’s Not Better to Give  Tennessee has been its own worst enemy turning the ball over.  UT committed a total of 24 turnovers in the loss to Virginia which led to 29 UVa points but did a little bit better job against Baylor with just 11 miscues leading to 14 Lady Bear points.  The Big Orange fell off the turnover wagon against MTSU and gave up the ball 21 times.  In a sprint fest against Texas, UT’s ball security led to just nine giveaways.  The turnover truck broad-sided Tennessee without Ariel Massengale in the game vs. DePaul.  The Lady Vols surrendered the ball 19 times to DU but ball security improved in the second half.  On the season, UT has generated 16.8 points off of miscues per game while the opposition is banking 13.3 ppg off of Orange mistakes.  UT leads in second chance points per game at 16.6 ppg with the opposition checking in at 10.3 ppg. Free Means Free  Since enduring a miserable 52.4 percent inaccuracy from the free throw line in the loss to Virginia, the Lady Vols have picked it up a little.  On the season, UT’s free throw percentage has climbed beyond the 70 percent range at 72.9 (215-295) .  Kudos to senior Glory Johnson who has been sent to the line a team high 77 times and connected on 55 for an improved 71.4 accuracy rate.

The Astoria, N.Y., native then compiled all of the submissions into a book.  “I know my relationship with Coach Summitt through the death of my grandmother and me going through my ups and downs battling depression,’’ said Holdsclaw. “What I realized from these letters is coach has helped these players through some of the most difficult times of their lives. When I’m reading them, I’m thinking, ‘Wow she’s had such an impact on all of our lives and just not basketball.’ “  A collection of former players and managers met with Summitt prior to the UT game against Old Dominion and presented her the book.  Summitt was overwhelmed. “It’s really hard to surprise Pat,’’ Holdsclaw said. “She was really excited and very touched by the book.” Maggie Dixon Award  Lady Vol coach Pat Summitt was presented with the Maggie Dixon Courage Award at Madison Square Garden on Dec. 11, 2011.  The Award is presented annually to an individual who exhibits courage in the face of adversity and continues to exemplify Maggie’s mantra of never allowing adversity to get in the way of achieving a dream.

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.

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.  In two 2011-12 preseason exhibitions contests, the Lady Vols outrebounded the opposition 52.0 rpg to 26.5 rpg.  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, Tennessee had not be outrebounded again until it faced UCLA on Dec. 17 and Stanford on Dec. 20.  Overall this season, the Lady Vols hold just a +10.5 rebounding advantage, 46.2-35.7.  Last season, in 37 games, Tennessee was outrebounded only twice -- by Georgia Tech, 37-36, and vs. Kentucky in the SEC Tournament final, 46-41.  Overall, the Lady Vols held a +12.4 rebounding advantage, 46.3 to 33.9, in 2010-11.

TENNESSEE VS. GEORGIA  JAN. 5, 2012  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 9.2 rpg. Johnson Could be the Fourth  UT senior Glory Johnson needs just 17 rebounds to pass the 1,000 rebound plateau.   Only three other Lady Vols have managed to grab 1,000 rebounds -- Chamique Holdsclaw (1,295), Sheila Frost (1,038) and Tamika Catchings (1,004). Six other UT players snagged over 900 career rebounds.

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 Round games.  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. Graduation  Lady Vol senior guard Alicia Manning had a busy morning on Dec. 9. In addition to packing for a trip to New York City and an early morning practice, Manning donned cap and gown to receive her diploma from UT.  The newly-minted graduate of the College of Education received her B.S. in Sport Management with a business minor.  In January Manning will join fellow Lady Vols Vicki Baugh and Glory Johnson in graduate school. The Woodstock, Ga., native plans to pursue a master’s in Kinesiology with a concentration in Sport Psychology.  Manning was joined at graduation by her parents, Jeff and Virginia Manning, as well as Lady Vol head coach Pat Summitt.  Following graduation in Thompson-Boling Arena, she dashed to the locker room where she signed the Lady Vol graduation pillar, adding her name near Candace Parker’s and continuing the 100 percent graduation tradition among UT hoopsters.  Manning then joined her teammates in Pratt Pavilion for practice before heading to the Big Apple. Heading in the Right Direction  Tennessee halted a two-game losing streak taking a 82-43 win over Middle Tennessee State behind the play of rookies.  Cierra Burdick, came off the bench to contribute 14 points and 10 rebounds while Ariel Massengale added 14 points and five assists.  That “must win” was followed by a solid effort in the 73-57 victory over #21/20 Texas on Dec. 4 in Knoxville. Starting with a Pair of L’s  The last time the Lady Vols opened the season with a 2-2 record was during the 1990-91 campaign. Tennessee went on to a 30-5 overall record and captured the 1991 National Championship.  Tennessee opened that season with a win over Stanford (the defending NCAA Champs)...lost by 13 at N.C. State...defeated Virginia Tech on the road ... then lost at Vanderbilt by 14 points.  Including this season, back-to-back losses have only occurred 25 times during Coach Pat Summitt’s 38-year career at Tennessee.  Before losing back-to-back to Virginia and #1-ranked Baylor (Nov. 20 & 27, 2011), the last occurrence was during the 11 loss 2008-09 season.  UT lost back-to-back games twice that year -- at Duke and Kentucky (Feb. 16 & 19) and vs. Auburn and Ball State (Mar. 7 & 22).  Tennessee suffered back-to-back losses three


TENNESSEE VS. GEORGIA  JAN. 5, 2012  and Ball State (Mar. 7 & 22).  Tennessee suffered back-to-back losses three times in the 10 loss, 1996-97 NCAA Championship “Cinderella Season.”  Of the 201 all-time losses for Summitt’s UT teams, they have lost back-to-back-to-back games just twice.  In December 1984, the Lady Vols lost three consecutive games (all on the road) at #3-ranked Georgia, at #2-ranked Texas and at #7-ranked Louisiana Tech.  In February 1986, UT also lost three consecutive games at #8-ranked Ole Miss, #11-ranked Auburn and against #3-ranked Louisiana Tech. When Playing Number One  Tennessee is 14-29 all-time when playing the nation’s number one ranked team. 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 Numbers Game  Prior to the game versus Baylor on Nov. 27, the last time Tennessee played the nation’s number one-ranked team was on Jan. 22, 2007 in Knoxville. 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 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. All-American 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 46game 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). McGee was introduced at the 2011 TipOff in Knoxville. 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 all-time) 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 all-time 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.


GAME 11

#7/8 UT vs. Old Dominion // Dec. 28, 2011

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.

GAME 12

#7/8 UT at Auburn // Jan. 1, 2012

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