GAME 26: Vanderbilt NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The fourth-ranked Tennessee Lady Volunteer squad came out flat in its third game in seven days at Vanderbilt on Feb. 13, but still captured a 65-57 victory over the Commodores to improve to 12-0 in the SEC. UT scored just 15 points on 5-of-25 shooting (season-low 20 percent) in the first half and trailed Vanderbilt, 28-15. It was third lowest scoring half in Lady Vol history behind the 13 points UT scored at Rutgers on Jan. 3, 2009 and the 14 they managed versus Virginia in the NCAA Regional Finals on March 25, 1996. Tennessee came back and won both of those contests, as well. After an intense halftime speech from Summitt, the Lady Vols played much better in the second half, shooting 51.5 percent (17for-33) and outscoring Vanderbilt, 50-29, over the final 20 minutes. The Lady Vols used a 16-3 run in the final frame to take control of the game after trailing by 13 at the break - tying for UT’s worst halftime deficit of the season that came at Baylor on Dec. 14. Freshman Lauren Avant, in only her 10th game of the season because of injury and illness setbacks, was the comeback’s catalyst, scoring six straight points over a 32-second span to pull UT within one point, 42-41 with 7:33 left in the contest. She also had three second-half steals in 17 minutes after the break and finished with a career-best 11 points in 20 minutes. Classmate Meighan Simmons hit a three-pointer with 5:54 left in the game and gave Tennessee a 44-42 advantage - its first lead since being up 5-2 four minutes into the game. The game-clinching play came from reserve junior post Lyssi Brewer. Like Avant, Brewer had missed over half the season’s games, but she came up big against the Commodores. Brewer made a layup and then poked the ball away from VU’s Jence Rhoads right to Simmons who found Brewer for the fastbreak score to put UT up 55-49 with 2:30 left in the game. Brewer finished with a season-best five points, while junior Shekina Stricklen tallied 14 points and nine boards and junior Glory Johnson recorded her ninth double-double (10 points and 11 boards) of the season.

GAME 27: South Carolina KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- No. 4-ranked Tennessee clinched at least a share of its 16th SEC regular season championship with an 82-60 victory over South Carolina on Feb. 17 at Thompson-Boling Arena. The Lady Vols improved to 13-0 in the conference and 25-2 overall in a game that was never in doubt. Junior Lyssi Brewer, in her first start of the season, scored a season-best seven points in the game’s first five minutes and five seconds. She also ripped down a season-best 10 boards in 17 minutes. The real star for the Big Orange, however, was junior Alicia Manning. A-Town, her nickname on the team, scored a careerbest 22 points, including her first three trey attempts of the game. Manning hadn’t made a three this season heading into the game. She made 8-of-11 field goal attempts, grabbed five boards and made three steals in 26 minutes. Junior Shekinna Stricklen recorded her ninth double-double of the season with 12 points and 10 boards, while Meighan Simmons dropped in 17 points and four assists. Tennessee held the Gamecocks without a field goal for eight minutes and 12 seconds of the first half. After Courtney Newton’s three at the 17:46 mark in the first half, USC didn’t score a bucket until Markeshia Grant hit a three with 9:34 remaining until the break. At that point, the Lady Vols led 21-10 after going on a 17-2 run, while South Carolina struggled from the field. Sophomore Kamiko Williams and Manning made back-to-back trifectas to cap the run. In the second half, UT used a 10-0 run to put the game away. Manning’s third three of the game was followed by a nifty behindthe-back pass from Simmons to Stricklen for a layup that extended Tennessee’s lead to 70-47 with 6:29 left in the game. The win marked UT’s 24th straight conference victory and 16th straight win this season.
