SEC TEAMS WITH DOUBLE DIGIT WINS Three SEC schools holding double-digit wins over the Lady Vols all-time. Auburn has 10 wins against 34 losses and is joined by Georgia with 15 wins (against 40 losses) and LSU with 12 victories (against 40 defeats). Outside of these SEC schools, only four of Tennessee’s other 170 opponents have ever recorded double-digit wins over the Lady Vols. UT WINNING STREAKS VS. SEC TEAMS Tennessee holds a winning streak over every SEC team except Georgia heading into the 2011 slate of conference games. The Lady Vols sport 30-plus game winning streaks over three SEC teams -- South Carolina 40, Alabama 37, and Mississippi State 32. Five conference foes broke Lady Vol winning streaks in the 2008-09 season when Auburn, Kentucky, LSU and Vanderbilt all tagged UT with a loss. Mississippi State is still the only SEC school never to defeat Tennessee. School Win Streak and last loss Alabama 37 in a row, since 3-3-1984 Arkansas 17 in row, since 12-29-1996 Auburn 2 in a row, since 3-7-2009 Florida 4 in a row, since 2-8-2009 Georgia no streak, since 1-21-2010 (1 loss) Kentucky 3 in a row, since 2-19-2009 LSU 3 in a row, since 2-26-2009 Mississippi 21 in a row, since 2-4-1996 Mississippi St. 32 in a row, never lost to MSU South Carolina 40 in a row, since 1-23-1980 Vanderbilt 7 in a row, since 1-11-2009 HOLY SMOKES BATMAN Tennessee blasted out the blocks in SEC play this season.

RARE SEC ROAD LOSSES FOR SUMMITT Lady Vol coach Pat Summitt’s teams rarely lose on the road in the SEC but 2008-09 was the exception with five losses on the road against just two wins. The loss to Vanderbilt on Jan. 11, 2009 was the 30th SEC road loss suffered by a Summitt-coached Lady Vol team and halted a 17-game SEC road winning streak. Two weeks later, UT also lost, this time at #6/5 Auburn and two weeks after that #11/13 Florida defeated the Lady Vols. Add another two weeks and another SEC road loss for UT, this time a 66-56 decision a the hands of the Kentucky Wildcats and a week later it was a road loss at LSU, 63-61. Last season, Georgia tagged the Lady Vols with a regular season SEC loss for the first time since the Bulldogs prevailed 78-51 on Jan. 17, 2000. AMAZING AT HOME VS. THE SEC Since Tennessee began contesting games with SEC opponents, the Lady Vols have produced a 18312 record in home games. Only six SEC teams have ever managed a victory over the Lady Vols in Knoxville – Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU and Ole Miss. Georgia has won three games on UT’s turf while Auburn, Kentucky, Ole Miss and LSU have registered two wins each and Florida one win. Georgia was the only team to defeat UT at home in the 1990s (1991 & 1996). LSU and Florida are the only SEC teams to defeat UT at home in the 21st century. THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME This season at home, the Orange and White hold a perfect 13-0 mark, winning each contest by at least 10 points but an overall average of +31.8 (86.6 ppg to 54.8 ppg). At TBA, the Big Orange has shot .474 from the field, while holding the opposition to a .323 shooting percentage...In three of the 13 home games, the Lady Vols have tallied double-digits in three-pointers made, including a school-record 15 against Chattanooga and Lamar. Tennessee is outrebounding opponents by +12.7 -- 48.3 to 35.6. For some reason, the Lady Vols take better care of the ball at home with just 13.0 miscues per contest and dish 16.5 assists per
