Noting LSU Tidbits

 LSU had a 10-game winning streak snapped by Florida on Jan. 15 by a score of 62-58 in Gainesville.  LSU was 3-3 on the 2011-12 season on Nov. 27 after losing at #18-ranked Ohio State (77-68).  The win streak went down as the longest by LSU since the 2007-08 season.

The 4-1-1 on LSU  Before facing Tennessee, LSU suffered its first SEC loss of the season and had a 10-game winning streak snapped losing at Florida, 62-58, on Jan. 15, in the O’Connell Center.  The win streak went down as the longest by LSU since 2007-08 and the Lady Tigers nearly recovered from a 15-point deficit with 7:39 left to play to extend the streak.  The Lady Tigers dug themselves into a 32-25 hole at the half. Florida increased the advantage to double digits and maintained it for most of the second half.  Florida led 55-41 with 6:36 on the clock until LSU scored 12 in a row to make a game of it.  A valiant comeback sparked by the play of Courtney Jones on both ends of the floor pulled LSU to within two points, but Florida put the game away at the free throw line after the Lady Tigers misfired on back-to-back three-point attempts.  Jones finished with 15 points to go along with eight rebounds. Senior forward LaSondra Barrett notched her second double-double of the season and 14th of her career with 17 points and 11 rebounds. LSU struggled offensively and shot just 36.4 percent for the game.

Our Last Meeting with LSU  Tennessee ran the table in SEC league play, finishing 16-0 with an 80-60 “Senior Day” victory over LSU on Feb. 27, 2011 at Thompson-Boling Arena.  Juniors Glory Johnson (15 points, 16 rebounds) and Shekinna Stricklen (17 points, 11 rebounds) each recorded their 10th double-doubles of the season, as UT completed an undefeated SEC league play slate for the ninth time in school history.  The marksmanship of UT’s only two seniors - guards Angie Bjorklund and Sydney Smallbone - helped the Lady Vols shoot a season-best 9-of-16 (.563) from behind the arc.  The pair was sensational in its final regular season home game, combining to go a perfect 6-for-6 on treys. Bjorklund scored 17 points and made all four

of her three-point attempts.  The Lady Tigers missed their first six shots and started the contest 1-for-11.  Bjorklund and Stricklen broke the game open with 12 straight points during a 1-minute, 30-second span midway through the first half.  Bjorklund started the run with a three at the 9:20 mark in the first half and completed the spurt with a four-point play to give the Big Orange a 32-10 advantage with 7:56 left before the break.  LSU’s Adrienne Webb and LaSondra Barrett combined to hit three consecutive treys and Barrett made a pair of free throws to make the halftime score 44-31.  LSU kept the game close throughout the second half and cut Tennessee’s lead to 67-57 on a three by Courtney Jones with 2:58 left in the game.

Tight Battles  For quite a few years, UT dominated LSU winning 29 of 34 games between 1977 and 2002.  Over the past few seasons, the LSU-UT series has grown into the SEC’s most anticipated match-up. The Lady Vols went 1-1 against LSU in 2004-05 and 2005-06 losing the regular season and winning the SEC Tournament title.  In 2007, the opposite occurred as UT defeated the Lady Tigers in Baton Rouge, 56-51 and lost in the SEC tourney semis, 63-54. It was UT’s final loss of 2007 en route to the NCAA title.  In 2008, the teams squared off three times with LSU winning in Knoxville during the regular season and UT taking the SEC title and the NCAA Final Four semi meeting.  In 2008-09, only one meeting occurred with LSU winning in Baton Rouge, 63-61.  The two teams met in the regular season twice in 2009-10 and 2010-11. It marked the first time since the 1999-2000 and the 2000-01 seasons that the two teams met twice in the regular season. UT swept LSU all four years.

Family Feud  LSU head coach Nikki Caldwell is no stranger to Lady Vol fans.  Caldwell, a 5-11 guard from Oak Ridge, Tenn., donned the orange and wore number 33 as a player from 1990-94.  She was a member of the 1991 Lady Vol NCAA Championship team and played in 126 games during her career averaging 5.9 ppg and 2.2 rpg.  She returned to Rocky Top twice, first as a graduate assistant in 1998-99 and then as an assistant from 2002-08 helping to win NCAA titles in 2007 & 2008.  While at UCLA and now at LSU, Caldwell is assisted by Lady Vol Tasha Butts (2000-04) and Lady Vol practice player Tony Perotti (1997-99). Former LV Video Director Angel Elderkin (2005-07) joined her at LSU this season in the same role.

LSU SERIES This marks the 54th meeting between the two schools dating back to the 1977-78 season with UT holding a 4112 advantage. The two teams began the series in 1977 and have played every year since. The most bizarre game in the series came at the PMAC in 1979 when LSU claimed an 85-80 OT win in a shortened, Dale Brown-inspired running clock overtime. The UT-LSU men’s game was set to follow the women’s contest and Brown insisted that the two women’s teams go to the auxiliary gym to finish the game. After arguing longer than it would have taken to play the extra five minutes, the teams took to the court. Brown insisted that the overtime be played with a running clock and LSU prevailed 85-80. Five days later, the two teams met in Knoxville’s Stokely Athletics Center where the Lady Vols defeated the Ben-Gals, 92-48, behind the play of junior point guard and now Lady Vol associate head coach Holly Warlick.

Former Players & Staffers in Coaching

Tough W’s against Summitt  The roll call goes like this: Sylvia Hatchell, Sharon Fanning, Jane Albright, Lea Henry, Nancy Darsch, Trish Roberts, Mickie DeMoss, Matthew Mitchell, Kellie Jolly Harper , Tanya Haave and Nikki Caldwell.  UT coach Pat Summitt has faced many former players and assistant coaches in a variety of games thru the years as opposing head coaches, but no former Lady Vol player has ever knocked off her mentor.  Former assistant Carolyn Peck was the first to record a victory over her former boss. While at Purdue, Peck handed Summitt a 78-68 loss on Nov. 15, 1998 in the State Farm Tip-Off Classic in West Lafayette, Ind. The defeat snapped UT’s 46-game consecutive winning streak (that was second only to Louisiana Tech’s NCAA all-time 54-game winning streak).  Former assistants Mickie DeMoss and Matthew Mitchell turned the winning trick as head coaches at Kentucky, (DeMoss 66-63, on Jan. 26, 2006 and Mitchell 66-56 on Feb. 19, 2009 and 61-60 on Jan. 12, 2012 -- all in Lexington), and Sylvia Hatchell managed to pull off the feat twice at North Carolina (75-63 on Mar. 28, 2006 and 70-57, Dec. 3, 2006). Facing Coach Summitt  Former Lady Vol players turned head coaches have been less successful. Former Lady Vol All-America Patricia Roberts tried while head coach at Maine (0-2, lost 77-64 on Dec. 13, 1990 and 86-71 on Nov. 24, 1991).  Former Lady Vol Olympian and point guard Lea Henry faced Summitt in the NCAA Tournament with her Georgia State team and lost 98-68 on Mar. 15, 2002.  Next to try to knock off Summitt was Kellie Jolly Harper with her Western Carolina team on Mar. 20, 2005. The Lady Catamounts lost 94-43.  UT All-American and then San Francisco head coach Tanya Haave. “LaMachine’s” Dons fell to UT on Nov. 15, 2008, 68-39.

 Massengale had her “assistfest” against Vanderbilt on Sunday dishing out 12 scoring passes while adding six points, two rebounds and a couple of steals.  The dozen helpers against the Commodores breaks the previous mark set by Meighan Simmons (11 assists vs. Alabama 1/6/11).  Her 12 assists also tied for the fifth-most in UT history with current associate head coach Holly Warlick who had 12 assists against Clemson in 1980. Earlier this season, Massengale had two nine-assist performances.  Previously, Massengale was tabbed as the SEC Freshman of the Week on Dec. 5 and joins UT grad student Glory Johnson for dual Lady Vol conference honors. Johnson was named as the SEC Player of the Week on both Jan. 2 and 9. Broke Rookie Record  Freshman Ariel Massengale broke the Lady Vol rookie record for assists with 12 against Vanderbilt on Jan. 15.  Massengale eclipsed the previous record of 11 assists set by Meighan Simmons against Alabama on Jan. 6, 2011.

Elite Company

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


TENNESSEE VS. LOUISIANA STATE  JAN. 19, 2012 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 9.8 rpg.

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 17.1 points off of miscues per game while the opposition is banking 12.4 ppg off of Orange mistakes.  UT leads in second chance points per game at 18.0 ppg with the opposition checking in at 11.7 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 71.0 (269-379) .  Kudos to senior Glory Johnson who has been sent to the line a team high 109 times and connected on 71 for an improved 65.1 accuracy rate.

tions to intercollegiate athletics over almost four decades go well beyond one sport.  “Coach Summitt has been recognized numerous times for her contributions to women’s basketball – and rightly so,” Emmert said.  “The Ford Award honors her for what she has meant to intercollegiate athletics through her career and for the positive example she continues to set today. “ Former Players Compile a Memory Book  After hearing of Tennessee Lady Vol Coach Pat Summitt’s diagnosis of early onset dementia, Alzheimer’s type, Chamique Holdsclaw reached out to players spanning all decades of Lady Vol basketball to compile a “memory book” for their coach.  Holdsclaw, a four-time Lady Vols All-American from 1995-99, contacted former Lady Vol players, managers and staffers asking them to share written memories, Summitt’s influence on their lives, and photos of their time in the program. 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. Sports Illustrated Sportswoman for 2011  As the all-time winningest coach in NCAA collegiate basketball, University of Tennessee Lady Vol head coach Pat Summitt has won her fair share of awards over the past 38 years.  On Dec. 5, 2011 Summitt joined an elite group of sports superstars when it was announced by Time Inc. Sports Group editor Terry McDonell that she, and Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, were the 2011 SPORTS ILLUSTRATED Sportswoman and Sportsman of the Year.  On Tues., Dec. 6 Summitt and Krzyzewski were feted at a celebration in New York City and were joined by fellow Sportswomen and Sportsmen Chris Evert (1976), Sugar Ray Leonard (1981), Wayne Gretzky (1982), David Robinson (2003) and David Ortiz (2004).  Summitt and Krzyzewski, the NCAA’s all-time winningest women’s and men’s basketball coaches, joined an elite group of sports immortals, including Muhammad Ali, Arthur Ashe, Derek Jeter, Michael Jordan, Billie Jean King, Jack Nicklaus, Bobby Orr and Pete Rozelle to receive this award.  The magazine’s editors have chosen each honoree based on the principles established in 1954, when runner Roger Bannister was honored as SPORTS ILLUSTRATED’s first Sportsman: “While the victory may have been his or hers, it is not

for the victory alone that he or she is honored. 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. Smith was honored in 1997, the same year he set the then NCAA wins record and announced his retirement.  Other coaches named Sportsman include Joe Paterno (1986); manager Terry Francona (2004, with the Boston Red Sox); Herb Brooks (1980, with the U.S. Olympic hockey team) and Tony DiCicco (1999, with the U.S. Women’s soccer team).

The shirts are $10, with $4.25 from every shirt going to research.  In a halftime ceremony at the Baylor game, checked were presented to Alzheimer’s Tennessee and UT Medical Center, as the `We Back Pat’ T-shirts have already generated more than $150,000 in donations. The proceeds will help directly impact those living with the disease in the state of Tennessee. Announcing the Pat Summitt Foundation  Since sharing her diagnosis of dementia in late August, Lady Vol coach Pat Summitt indicated she would like to start a foundation.  Summitt along with her son, Tyler, have formed a foundation that will fund grants in support of Alzheimer’s programs. The foundation, The Pat Summitt Foundation Fund (www.patsummitt. org), was announced at halftime of the Baylor game on Nov. 27 in Knoxville.  The aim of her Foundation is to make grants to non-profit organizations which provide education and awareness of Alzheimer’s, its onset and treatment; support services to patients, their families and caregivers, and research to treat, prevent, cure and ultimately eradicate the disease.  “Tyler and I have decided to join this battle, not just for us, but also for the millions of families affected by this disease. I have always told our players, our greatest opportunities are disguised as our greatest obstacles. It is time to treat this obstacle as an opportunity and a stepping stone to a cure,” Summitt said.

SEC Player of the Week (Dec. 26-Jan. 1)  Coming back after the winter holiday, Lady Vol senior forward Glory Johnson returned with strong performances against Old Dominion and Auburn. For her efforts, she was named the SEC Women’s Basketball Player of the Week on Jan. 2.  Johnson averaged 15.0 ppg and 12.0 rpg and added three assists and three steals, while playing 29.0 mpg in victories over Old Dominion and Auburn.  Against Old Dominion she led the UT scoring effort with 16 points and doubled up, pulling down 11 rebounds in just 26 minutes in the 90-37 win.  Following her standout game against the Lady Monarchs, Johnson recorded her second-consecutive double-double and fourth of the season in the 73-52 victory at Auburn on Sunday.  She finished with 14 points, 13 boards and three steals in the win to open the SEC slate.  She is the second Lady Vol to earn SEC laurels this season, following Ariel Massengale who was tabbed SEC Freshman of the Week Dec. 5.

Last 7-3 Start to Open the Season  The last time the Lady Vols posted a 7-3 record in the first 10 games to open a season was in 1996-97.  In that weird 29-10 overall record & NCAA title season, Tennessee collected wins over Austin Peay, #12/13-ranked Kansas, 314/17-ranked Notre Dame, Wisconsin-Green Bay, Memphis, #11/10-ranked Texas Tech, #13/16-ranked Texas (OT) and suffered losses to #11/8-ranked Louisiana Tech, #5-ranked Georgia, and #1-ranked Stanford.  The team headed into the 1997 portion of the schedule 7-4 overall after losing at #22/24 Arkansas. Third Time this Season  Against Old Dominion, Tennessee rebounded from a loss for the third time in the 2011-12 season.  After dropping a 97-80 decision at #4-rankedStanford on Dec. 20, UT righted the ship with a 90-37 win over ODU on Dec. 28 in Knoxville.  Stanford’s 90 points were the most against UT since Feb. 26, 2006 vs. Florida (UF 95, UT 93 (OT). UT turned Scarlet at Stanford  Tennessee’s 17-point loss at Stanford was the Lady Vols’ worst “L” since losing 71-55 against Ball State on Mar. 22, 2009, in the First Round of the NCAA tournament.  The Cardinal owned the boards against the Lady Vols with a 35-29 advantage.  Stanford also dominated UT in the paint by a 40-18 margin.

TENNESSEE VS. LOUISIANA STATE  JAN. 19, 2012 nine rebounds and snagged three steals.  Against DePaul, she logged 34 minutes. Shoot ‘em Up  Against UCLA, Tennessee hit a school record 76 percent (19-of-25) of its shots in the first half eclipsing the previous record of 70.3 percent against Old Dominion(1/4/89).  On the afternoon against UCLA, Tennessee shot 69.2 percent - the fourth-highest mark in program history.  UT’s season high shooting percentage going into the game was 49.2 percent against Pepperdine (11/13/11). The Ranked  UT’s six ranked opponents within its first 10 games of the 2011-12 campaign marks the most since playing five teams in the AP poll in the first eight games of the 2007-08 season. Conference Carousel  This season, the Lady Vols have faced a pair of teams from three different conferences -- the ACC, the Big 12, BIG EAST and Pac-12.  Against these power conferences, UT recorded a 5-3 record. Was Happy to be in Cali  Lady Vol starting center Vicki Baugh is excited to be in her home state of California.  The Sacramento native, who missed almost 21 months on the court due to ACL surgeries, will be making her first appearance in Los Angeles since her rookie season in 2007-08.  Baugh is finishing her UT eligibility in grad school. She will receive her Master’s in kinesiology in May. From BIG EAST Week to Pac 12 Week  Last week, the Lady Vols took on two teams from the BIG EAST facing #20/21-ranked DePaul (an 8461 win on Dec. 11) and #11-ranked Rutgers on Dec. 13 (a 67-61 win).  This week, Tennessee engages in Pac 12 Week facing UCLA (an 85-64 win) and at #4-ranked Stanford (a 97-80 loss)on the road. 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. Playing in Front of a Full House  The games versus both Stanford and UCLA were announced as advance sellouts.  Last season, UT played in front of capacity crowds at Louisville (22,124), Old Dominion (7,774), Baylor (10,569) and Auburn (7,536). 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-for-7 from the field for 14 points.  Following a couple of “not so Taber” performances, she was one of the second half sparks in the win over Rutgers.  Spani drilled a death ray trey with 1:53 left to give UT a comfortable 10-point lead, 64-54, to seal the comeback win.  The forward looked like her old self in the second half scoring 10 points and dishing three assists.  She logged 31 minutes on the night. Rutgers Backs Pat  The folks at Rutgers showed their support for UT coach Pat Summitt when the two teams met on Dec. 13.  The Rutgers players wore “We Back Pat” shooting shirts and RU athletics director Tim Pernetti presented UT a commemorative jersey for Summitt.  Rutgers sold the Pat Summitt Foundation bracelets on the concourse with the proceeds going to the Foundation fund. UT & Rutgers Hall of Famers  Both Tennessee and Rutgers can boast of Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame (Knoxville, Tenn.) and Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame (Springfield, Mass.) head coach inductees in Pat Head Summitt and C. Vivian Stringer.  Summitt joined the Women’s HoF when she was selected as a member of the inaugural class of 1999, while Stringer was a 2001 inductee.  In Fall 2009, Stringer earned her induction into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame while Summitt was a member of the Class of 2000.  Not only are the head coaches members of the WBHOF but UT also sports Lady Vol associate head coach Holly Warlick (inducted as a player in the Class of 2001 with Coach Stringer) and Lady Vol Basketball Director of Character Development, Daedra Charles-Furlow was a 2007 inductee. Garden Party  Tennessee’s appearance in Madison Square Garden, “the world’s most famous basketball arena,” marks the fourth time for the Lady Vols.  UT has a 3-0 record at MSG.  In all previous trips to the Garden, Rutgers has been the opponent each time.  Lady Vol All-American and Olympian Chamique Holdsclaw traveled to her hometown for her se-

nior 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 6854 on Jan. 3, 1999.  The next visit was a meeting between #2 ranked Tennessee, who was trying to rebound from a loss at UConn, and #9/10-ranked Rutgers, in a defensive struggle in Madison Square Garden on Jan. 2, 2001, as the Lady Vols won 58-51.  In the 2001 game at MSG, Lady Vol senior AllAmerican Tamika Catchings was forced to wear the “blood jersey” (number 55), after her number 24 orange road jersey turned up missing when the UT managers did the team laundry after the game versus UConn in Hartford. It never did appear on eBay.  The Lady Vols were invited to play in the Maggie Dixon Classic in 2009 with Rutgers as the opponent once again. No. 4/3-ranked Tennessee defeated the Scarlet Knights, 68-54, on Dec. 13. Maggie Dixon Classic Classic Notes  This marks the second time the Lady Vols have participated in the Maggie Dixon Classic.  Lady Vol coach Pat Summitt is the 2011 recipient of the Maggie Dixon Courage Award. Summitt will be honored by the Dixon family during a second half time out in the Classic’s first game between Baylor and St. John’s.  Ironically, the last game Maggie Dixon ever coached at Army was against Tennessee. In 2006 Tennessee, Army, Old Dominion and George Washington were all bracketed together in Norfolk, Virginia, for NCAA First /Second 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

TENNESSEE VS. LOUISIANA STATE  JAN. 19, 2012 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 is now 0-4 when trying to upset #1 from that position.  UT is currently ranked number seven in the USA Today/ESPN poll. Tennessee is now 0-2 when trying to upset #1 from that position.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - A 21-4 run over a six-minute span midway through the second half helped lift the #6/7 Lady Vols to a 87-64 victory over #25/24 Vanderbilt on Saturday before 17,879. Shekinna Stricklen led the way with 20 points and Glory Johnson posted her sixth double-double in the last seven games with 16 points and 13 rebounds. Vicki Baugh contributed 16 points and seven rebounds for the Lady Vols, who rebounded from a 61-60 loss at #9 Kentucky on Thursday night. Tennessee improved to 13-4 overall, 4-1 in the SEC. Meighan Simmons chipped in with 10 points and Ariel Massengale set her career-high in assists with 12 to go along with six points. The 12 assists tie for the fifth-most in Tennessee history. That mark was first accomplished by Associate Head Coach Holly Warlick in 1980. Christina Foggie led all scorers with 28 points for the Commodores (14-3, 2-2). Stephanie Holzer added 14. After a very tight game for the first 25 minutes, where neither team led by double-figures, the Lady Vols turned up the defensive intensity and created offensive opportunities. Tennessee had 14 steals and shot 52.9 from the floor. It was the third time this season, Tennessee shot 50 percent from the floor. Johnson tied her career-high with five steals. The Lady Vols limited the NCAA’s best 3-point shooting team to just 31.3 from beyond the arc (5-of-16). Vanderbilt came into the game making 44.1 percent of its shots from trifecta land. As part of the 21-4 run, the Lady Vols used a 10-0 run to break open the game midway through the second half. Tenacious defense helped create easy offensive opportunities for UT. After neither team led by double-figures for the first 28 minutes of action, the Lady Vols ballooned to a 15-point lead with 10:26 left in the game. A Stricklen 3-pointer with 14 minutes left in the second half, gave the Lady Vols a 51-43 advantage after the teams had played even early in the second half. Tennessee then took the first double-figure lead of the game on a pair of Baugh free throws with 11:44 left. Just seconds later Johnson stole the ball and layed in home for a 57-45 lead for Tennessee. On the next possession, Simmons stole another pass and Massengale finished 10 consecutive points for the Lady Vols. The lead ballooned to 20 on a Baugh jump shot with 4:30 left, giving the Lady Vols a 77-57 lead. Tennessee held a 39-36 advantage at halftime thanks to 50 percent shooting from the floor (16-of-32) with eight points apiece from Baugh and Johnson. The half featured three ties and team led by double-figures. Johnson went down with an apparent shoulder injury with 1:49 left in the half as she got tangled up with Elan Brown going after a loose ball. After halftime, she returned with vengeance and as she racked up the double-double. A Briana Bass 3-pointer followed by a Baugh lay-up gave the Lady Vols a 35-26 lead with 3:34 left in the first half. Vanderbilt came right back with consecutive 3-pointers by Foggie to cut the UT lead to 35-32 with 2:49 left. Johnson’s putback with 6:30 left in the first half gave Tennessee the first lead larger than six points in the first half, 25-19. That finished a mini 6-0 run for UT.
