AU is 0-2 in those games.

Our Last Meeting with Auburn  Playing in front of their largest crowd ever at Auburn Arena (7,536), the Auburn Tigers had no answer for No. 5/6-ranked Tennessee’s size and depth, losing 7353, on Jan. 23, 2011.  The Lady Vols held a commanding 38-20 edge on the  boards and scored 26 bench points.  UT junior forward Glory Johnson came off the bench to score 16 points and grab 13 rebounds for her fifth double double of the season, while classmate Shekinna Stricklen tied a season-best with 18 points for the second straight game.  Redshirt junior Kelley Cain was her usual dominant self, punishing the Tigers to the tune of nine points and 10 boards in the first half. She didn’t score after the break, but finished with 12 boards, three blocks, three steals and three assists.  UT weathered a poor shooting performance from its backcourt and went 6:37 in the first half without a field goal.  The Lady Vols’ top three guards, senior Angie Bjorklund, freshman Meighan Simmons and sophomore Kamiko Williams shot a combined 0-for-6 before the intermission.  Redshirt junior Vicki Baugh. Baugh scored nine points in just seven minutes. It was the most points she had scored since Feb. 3, 2009.

 UT had another fantastic defensive effort, holding its ninth straight opponent below 40 percent shooting.  The win was also UT’s 10 straight since falling at Baylor on Dec. 14.

FIU’s Jerica Coley, who scored a game-high 28 points, nailed a 3-pointer to push the lead back to nine, all but sealing the game for the Panthers.  Auburn out-rebounded FIU 42-26 and committed only 14 turnovers. But, the Tigers again struggled from the field, shooting just 30.8 percent for the game.  Tanner led the Tigers with 17 points off the bench.

AU-UT Duck-ins  Today’s game marks the 45th all-time meeting between Auburn and Tennessee.  Although the Tigers won seven of the first 15 contests with UT, the Orange has since claimed 26 of the last 29 games between the two squads.  A pair of USA Olympic coaches will square-off today as well...

Glory -- Maybe This Season?  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 8.5 rpg. Johnson Could be the Fourth  UT senior Glory Johnson needs just 43 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.

TBA - The Place to Play

Rocky Top, You’ll Always Be...  Home, sweet home, to me.... On good ole Rocky Top, Tennessee has already entertained the home fans to a scoring bonanza this season averaging 82.2 ppg on The Summitt while holding the opponents to 57.7 ppg. No wonder the Lady Vols average a nation leading 13,609 fans per game. Toughest Place To Play  The University of Tennessee’s Thompson-Boling Arena is still the toughest women’s basketball arena in the nation to secure a win. The Lady Vols have fashioned a 345-21 all-time record on “The Summitt” for a 94.45 winning percentage since the doors were opened in 1987. Welcome to “The Summitt”  The playing court in the Thompson-Boling Arena on the University of Tennessee campus donned a new look for the 2005-06 season.  After Lady Vol coach Pat Summitt passed Dean Smith for most NCAA collegiate basketball wins of all-time with a 75-54 win over Purdue on Mar. 22, 2005, UT named the TBA court, “The Summitt.”  The floor had a complete overhaul with permanent logos of both the Lady Vols and Vols painted directly in front of the scorer’s table; the free throw lanes were painted orange with “SEC” reversed out; the giant jump circle/midcourt TENNESSEE was given a new brighter color scheme, and “The Summitt,” Coach Summitt’s actual signature adorns the sidelines opposite the

One of the Days of Christmas  Somewhere in the Lady Vols version of the “Twelve Days of Christmas” there should be a verse of “Stanford Comes A’ Callin’.”  Over the last 20-plus years, Tennessee and Stanford have traditionally met in mid-December and typically served as a measuring stick for each other regardless of the outcome.  In December games against the Cardinal, UT leads the series 16-6. Summer Fun  Please excuse Glory Johnson, Shekinna Stricklen, Nnemkadi and Chiney Ogwumike if they are caught up in conversation and laughter before the game.  The foursome spent part of their summer as USA basketball teammates at the 2011 World University Games in Shenzhen, China.  Team USA posted a perfect 6-0 record.

 The Red, White & Blue captured the gold medal with a 101-66 victory over Taiwan.

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.  Despite shuffled line-ups in the second half, UT committed just six turnovers in the next 20 minutes. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
