Noting Stanford

 

Tidbits  Stanford has won four games in a row since losing at UConn on Nov. 21.  Both UT and Stanford have faced Texas this season. The Cardinal won 72-59 in the season opener in Austin on Nov. 11 and the Lady Vols defeated the Longhorns, 73-57, on Dec. 4 in Knoxville.  Through games of Dec. 11, Stanford ranks in the national top 10 in five categories: rebounding margin (+18.6 -second), assist-to-turnover ratio (1.39 - fourth), field-goal percentage (47.0 - eighth), assists (18.86 eighth) and scoring (81.3 - 10th).  Individually, Nnemkadi Ogwumike is fifth in the country with 24.0 points per game, seventh with a 62.4 field-goal percentage and ninth with 11.0 rebounds a game.  Little sis Chiney is 15th with 10.6 rebounds a game. Lindy La Rocque (3.33) and Toni Kokenis (3.00) are fourth and eighth in assist-to-turnover ratio.

Our Last Meeting with Stanford  On Dec. 19, 2010, an ice-in-the-veins three-pointer by freshman guard Meighan Simmons with 48 seconds left sent sixth-ranked Tennessee to its 41st all-time overtime contest where it would not be denied.  Tennessee took an 82-72 overtime win over No. 3/2-ranked Stanford in front of 14,197 at ThompsonBoling Arena.  Tennessee redshirt junior center Kelley Cain missed a pair of free throws with just under three minutes remaining in the extra period, but she rebounded her own miss and put back a layup to put the Lady Vols up 75-70 in what turned out to be a pivotal play of the game .  Tennessee outscored the Cardinal 12-2 in OT and forced the team into 0-for-6 shooting from the field in the bonus frame.  Coincidentally, UT’s previous two overtime games had come against Stanford with the Lady Vols taking down the Cardinal in the last matchup in Knoxville, 79-69, on Dec. 21, 2008.  Tennessee raced out to a 16-6 lead and made five of its first six three-point attempts to go up by as much as 14 points in the first half (30-16). However, Stanford

fought back behind senior guard Jeanette Pohlen, who scored a game-high 24 points and made six treys before fouling out in overtime. Pohlen made four threes in the second half, including a trey that put the Cardinal, which shot 62.5 percent in the second half, ahead, 59-55, with 8:12 left in the game. Stanford stretched its lead to 63-57 before Tennessee used an 8-0 run to take a 65-63 lead on a layup by sophomore Taber Spani with 4:41 left. Pohlen hit her sixth three to put Stanford up 70-67 with 1:07 remaining, but Simmons answered on UT’s next possession and the Lady Vols’ defense stepped up in overtime. Simmons finished with 23, while senior Angie Bjorklund (16), junior Shekinna Stricklen (15) and Spani (10) also reached double figures. Stanford’s Nnemkadi Ogwumike had 20 points and 10 boards.

The 4-1-1 on Stanford

 Before facing Tennessee, Stanford played its first game in 13 days and defeated visiting Princeton, 8566, on Dec. 17.  Paced by the Ogwumike sisters, Nneka knocked down long jumpers all game on the way to 22 points and 12 rebounds while little sister, Chiney, added 21 points on 10-of-11 shooting and nine rebounds.  The Cardinal (7-1) extended their school-record home winning streak at Maples Pavilion to 67 games.  SU Freshman Taylor Greenfield scored five points during Stanford’s 13-4 spurt to open the second half as the Cardinal pulled away.  Lindy La Rocque returned to Stanford’s starting lineup after coming off the bench the previous three games for the Cardinal because of a right foot problem that limited her minutes.  Toni Kokenis added 11 points with two 3s for Stanford, which recovered for a 46-42 rebounding lead.

Versus the Pac 12

 The Lady Vols have faced 10 of the current members of the Pac 12 Conference and posted a 63-15 record all-time.  Prior to the win over UCLA on Dec. 17, 2011, the last time the Lady Vols faced a Pac 12 squad, UT defeated #3/2-ranked Stanford, 82-72 (OT) on Nov. 19, 2010, in Knoxville.

STANFORD SERIES This marks the 29th meeting between the two schools dating back to the 1988 season. UT and Stanford have developed a strong high-ranking intersectional rivalry in a series contested at least once annually for the last 23 years. UT has controlled the recent matchups, amazingly having taken the last 14 of 16 contests. Stanford has won consecutive meetings over the Lady Vols only once. The Cardinal has forced six of those games into extra minutes and the Lady Vols have won four overtimes including the last meeting in Thompson-Boling, a 79-69 OT UT win. The squads have competed three times in the postseason, with each of those games going Tennessee’s way. In 1991, the Lady Vols defeated the Cardinal in the NCAA Final Four in New Orleans, La., 68-60, on their way to their third national championship. In 2004, the two met in the Midwest Regional Championship game in Norman, Okla., on March 30. The Lady Vols earned a close 62-60 win to reach the Final Four in New Orleans. And in 2008, UT defeated SU in the NCAA title game, 64-48, in Tampa, Fla. HALL OF FAMERS & OLYMPIC GOLD Tara VanDerveer joined Pat Summitt in the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame as she was inducted in April 2002 in Knoxville, Tenn. Both were gold medal winning Olympic coaches -- Summitt in 1984 and VanDerveer in 1996. VanDerveer guided the Olympic Team to an unblemished 60-0 record from 1995-96 and owns an all-time international head coaching record of 88-8 (.917), while coaching a pair of Lady Vols (Nikki McCray and Carla McGhee) on the Atlanta Olympics gold medal squad. Meanwhile, Summitt boasts an all-time international record of 63-4 (.940) during her time at the helm of the national squad. She served as head coach of the 1984 United States Olympic Women’s Basketball Team winning the gold medal in Los Angeles.

TENNESSEE VS. STANFORD  DEC. 20, 2011 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).

Extra Time

 Chances are always pretty good that a Tennessee vs. Stanford game might need to go into extra innings.  The Lady Vols have participated in 42 overtime affairs all-time (against all opponents) and oneseventh of those games (six) have come against the Cardinal. UT leads 4-2 in overtime contests vs. SU.  In fact, the last two times the teams met in Thompson-Boling Arena on the UT campus, Tennessee has claimed overtime wins.

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.

Things to Consider 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

 Before visiting UCLA, UT’s previous three games had come against ranked opponents -- Texas, DePaul and Rutgers.  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.

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 on the road.

Conference Carousel

 Already this season, the Lady Vols have faced a pair of teams from three different conferences -- the ACC, the Big 12 and the Big EAST.  Against these power conferences, UT has a 4-2 record.

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.

Simmons Heating it Up  Sophomore guard Meighan Simmons has desperately struggled with her shot for the last couple of week.  “Speedy” field goal average hovered on life support in the 20 percent range.  In the last two games, she has been mostly on target.  Against UCLA, she tossed in a team high 18 points while going 8-for-14 from the field and 2-for-5 from three-point land.  Starting for the injured Ariel Massengale versus DePaul, Simmons knocked in 4-for-7 from the field and followed that up with a 4-for-12 game versus Rutgers.  Against the Scarlet Knights, Simmons drilled backto-back treys to cushion UT’s single point lead to seven points.  After Simmons knocked in her triples, Taber Spani followed with one for a 10-point Lady Vol lead with 1:53 to play.

Stricklen = Ironwomen  Senior Shekinna Stricklen has logged an average of 36.8 minutes per game over the last four contests.  She managed 33 minutes against UCLA despite fighting stomach troubles which sent her to the locker room in the first half.  In the come-from-behind victory at Rutgers, Stricklen sat a handful of second shy of 40 minutes.  In that game, she tossed in 22 points, grabbed nine rebounds and snagged three steals.  Against DePaul, she logged 34 minutes and played 37 versus Texas.

Happy to be in Cali  Lady Vol starting center Vicki Baugh is excited to

TENNESSEE VS. STANFORD  DEC. 20, 2011 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 the Chalk Board Baugh Finding Consistency  Tennessee redshirt senior Vicki Baugh had an allaround game at UCLA posting 14 points (6-9 FG) and grabbing 12 rebounds.  Previously, she put up season-high numbers for points and rebounds against Texas with 17 points and 11 rebounds. Similarly, she had a mirror-image game against Baylor with 17 and 10, respectively.  However, in the very next game after Baylor, she collected a couple of quick offensive fouls and finished the game with two points, three rebounds and four fouls in just eight minutes against Middle Tennessee State.  Baugh can fill a big time role in the post as she (literally) continues to get her legs back underneath her after almost a 21 months away from hoops.  With the double-digit efforts against Texas, Baugh posted her fifth career double-double. In her double effort against Baylor, it was her first doubledouble since a 12-point, 15-rebound outing at Gonzaga (Dec. 30, 2008).  She followed that great effort by taking herself out of the DePaul game with two quick fouls to start the game.  She never got into a rhythm against the Blue Demons and finished with six points and no rebounds.  Baugh wowed the crowd in the Baylor game nailing her first career three-pointer in the contest sending a rainbow over Brittney Griner.  Against the Lady Bears, Baugh looked like the eager, scrub-faced rookie from the 2007-08 season before suffering two ACL injuries/surgeries.

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.  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.  In the last six games, Tennessee has converted 111 second chance points against Baylor, MTSU, Texas, DePaul, Rutgers and UCLA while surrendering 71.

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 just 16.5 points off of miscues per game while the opposition is bank6

LADY VOL BASKETBALL /// 2011-12 GAME NOTES

ing 14.9 ppg off of Orange mistakes.  UT leads in second chance points per game at 16.9 ppg with the opposition checking in at 11.5 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 picked it up a little against Baylor and MTSU and converted 78 percent from the charity stripe.  Free throw defense struck again in the Texas game as the Lady Vols managed just 12-20 (.600).  The good news? It improved against DePaul as the Lady Vols took 35 trips to the line and knocked in 26 for 74.3 percent.  On the season, UT’s free throw percentage has climbed close to the 70 percent range at 69.6(142204) .  Free throws have felt like turnovers for some of the Lady Vols. Senior Glory Johnson has been sent to the line a team high 53 times and connected on 35 for a 66.0 accuracy rate.

Head Coach Pat Summitt 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).

NCAAs Ford Award  Tennessee .coach Pat Summitt is the recipient of the 2012 NCAA President’s Gerald R. Ford Award..  Announced on Dec. 6 the award is named in recognition of former President Gerald Ford, honors an individual who has provided significant leadership as an advocate for intercollegiate athletics over the course of their career.  Summitt is widely known as the foremost ambassador for women’s basketball.  NCAA President Mark Emmert said her contributions 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. “  Summitt will be recognized during the opening business session on Jan. 12 at the 2012 NCAA Convention in Indianapolis.  Her Lady Vols are playing at Kentucky that night, so Summitt will address the Convention attendees in a taped video message.

We Back Pat  To coincide with National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month the matchup between the No. 6/7 Lady Vols and the No. 1 Baylor Lady Bears on Sun., Nov. 27th was designated as the first of two, “We Back Pat” games.  The Vols will also participate in a “We Back Pat” game in January, when Coach Cuonzo Martin and the Big Orange take on the Connecticut Huskies on January 21st (CBS).  Thousands of fans wore the “We Back Pat” t-shirt to the Baylor game as 16,623 spectators were on hand.  Shirts are still available at The UT Bookstore and Stokely Athletics Center stores, as well as area Food City and Walgreens. 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 nonprofit 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.

Quick Hitters Rebounds Win Championships  Coach Pat Summitt’s mantra of defense and boards has been a staple of her nearly four decades of coaching.  In two 2011-12 preseason exhibitions contests, the Lady Vols outrebounded the opposition 52.0 rpg to 26.5 rpg.  UT started out the 2011-12 regular season hauling in 54 boards against Pepperdine while the Waves snagged 34.  Tennessee fell off the rebounding wagon in the very next game as Miami controlled the glass collecting 45 boards to the Lady Vols’ 38 total rebounds. That was a vast improvement over UT’s 13-rebound deficit at halftime to the Hurricanes.  UT corrected the rebounding problem against Vir-

ginia, 45-38, with Shekinna Stricklen collecting 14 boards. Since losing the battle of the boards to Miami, Tennessee had not be outrebounded again until it faced UCLA on Dec. 17. Overall this season, the Lady Vols hold just an +8.3 rebounding advantage, 45.9-37.6. Last season, in 37 games, Tennessee was outrebounded only twice -- by Georgia Tech, 37-36, and vs. Kentucky in the SEC Tournament final, 4641. Overall, the Lady Vols held a +12.4 rebounding advantage, 46.3 to 33.9, in 2010-11.

Streaking We were Streaking into 2011-12  The Lady Vols had a 38-game home court winning streak halted against Baylor on Nov. 27, 2011. It was the third longest in Lady Vol history. Tennessee’s all-time home court winning streak was 69 consecutive games from Feb. 2, 1991 to Jan. 6, 1996.

Lady Vol Streaks  The Lady Vols last loss at home was against #1 Baylor, 76-67, on Nov. 27, 2011, since then UT is 2-0.  The last time UT lost on the road was on Nov. 20, 2011 at Virginia, 69-64 OT. Since then, UT is 2-0 in road games.  The last time the Lady Vols lost on a neutral court was against Notre Dame, 73-59, in the 2011 NCAA Elite 8 game on Mar. 28, 2011. Since that time, UT is 1-0 on a neutral court.

Shekinna Has It Going On  Lady Vol senior Shekinna Stricklen has the nation’s longest starting streak entering the 2011-12 season.  Stricklen has started 113 consecutive games.  DePaul senior forward Keisha Hampton started 112 consecutive games before her streak was halted on Dec. 17. Miami’s (Fla.) Shenise Johnson has been in the starting five for 107 consecutive games.  Miami traveled to Knoxville for the State Farm TipOff on (a 92-76 UT win). UT and DePaul met in Madison Square Garden on Dec. 11 in the Maggie Dixon Classic (an 84-61 UT win).

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 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 8.6 rpg.

Johnson Could be the Fourth  UT senior Glory Johnson needs just 60 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 82.5 ppg on The Summitt while holding the opponents to 63.0 ppg. No wonder the Lady Vols average a nation leading 13,249 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 344-21 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/mid-court TENNESSEE was given a new brighter color scheme, and “The Summitt,” Coach Summitt’s actual signature adorns the sidelines opposite the team benches.

300 Wins in TBA  Tennessee recorded its 300th win in ThompsonBoling Arena when the Lady Vols defeated the Stanford Cardinal, 79-69 OT on Dec. 21, 2008.  Seven years earlier, UT grabbed its 200th TBA win over the University of Southern California on Nov. 18, 2001, 106-66.  UT has now amassed a 344-21(.941) record since the Orange and White moved into the ThompsonBoling Arena to start the 1987-88 season 25-years ago.  Along the way, the Lady Vols have produced 10 flawless home records: in 1988-89 (15-0), 1991-92 (14-0), 1992-93 (13-0), 1993-94 (15-0), 1994-95 (150), 1997-98 (16-0), 1998-99 (14-0), 2000-01 (15-0), 2002-03 (16-0), 2009-10 (17-0) and 2010-11 (17-0).  UT also registered a former NCAA record 69-game home court-winning streak from Feb. 1, 1991 thru Jan. 2, 1996.

Just 21 TBA Losses  The Tennessee Lady Vols rarely lose at home.  In fact, since moving to the Thompson-Boling Arena for the 1987-88 campaign, UT has lost two games in one season just seven times.  UT lost two games in TBA during the inaugural 1987-88 campaign, 1996-97, 1999-00, 2001-02, 2003-04, 2005-06 and 2008-09 seasons.  The 21 all-time losses at TBA have come at the hands of just 11 teams: Baylor (2011), Virginia (2008), Florida (2006), LSU (2008, 2006), Duke (2009, 2007, 2004), Connecticut (2004, 2002, 2000, 1996), Louisiana Tech (1999, 1989), Georgia (1996, 1991), Texas (2003, 2002, 1987), Stanford (1996) and Auburn (1988).

Home Sweet Home  The victory over Georgia on Jan. 31, 2005, was the Lady Vols 400th home win since Pat Summitt took over as head coach in 1974.  Summitt has won 91.6 percent of all home games in 38 years producing a 496-46 overall record.  Home losses (in the Summitt era) include: six in Alumni Gym from 1974-76; 19 in Stokely Athletics Center from 1976-87; and 20 in Thompson-Boling Arena.

2011-12 Archive Notes 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 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. 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 Pavilion for practice before heading to the Big Apple. Heading in the Right Direction  Tennessee halted a two-game losing streak taking a 82-43 win over Middle Tennessee State behind the play of rookies.  Cierra Burdick, came off the bench to contribute 14 points and 10 rebounds while Ariel Massengale added 14 points and five assists.  That “must win” was followed by a solid effort in the 73-57 victory over #21/20 Texas on Dec. 4 in Knoxville. Starting with a Pair of L’s  The last time the Lady Vols opened the season with a 2-2 record was during the 1990-91 campaign. Tennessee went on to a 30-5 overall record and captured the 1991 National Championship.  Tennessee opened that season with a win over Stanford (the defending NCAA Champs)...lost by 13 at N.C. State...defeated Virginia Tech on the road ... then lost at Vanderbilt by 14 points.  Including this season, back-to-back losses have only occurred 25 times during Coach Pat Summitt’s 38-year career at Tennessee.  Before losing back-to-back to Virginia and #1-ranked Baylor (Nov. 20 & 27, 2011), the last occurrence was during the 11 loss 2008-09 season.  UT lost back-to-back games twice that year -- at Duke and Kentucky (Feb. 16 & 19) and vs. Auburn and Ball State (Mar. 7 & 22).  Tennessee suffered back-to-back losses three times in the 10 loss, 1996-97 NCAA Championship “Cinderella Season.”  Of the 201 all-time losses for Summitt’s UT teams, they have lost back-to-back-to-back games just twice.  In December 1984, the Lady Vols lost three consecutive games (all on the road) at #3-ranked Georgia, at #2-ranked Texas and at #7-ranked Louisiana Tech.  In February 1986, UT also lost three consecutive games at #8-ranked Ole Miss, #11-ranked Auburn and against #3-ranked Louisiana Tech. When Playing Number One  Tennessee is 14-29 all-time when playing the nation’s number one ranked team. The Lady Vols are 3-10 in Knoxville, an even 6-6 on the road and 5-13 on neutral courts.  UT is currently ranked number six in the AP poll. Tennessee is now 0-4 when trying to upset #1 from that position.  UT is currently ranked number seven in the USA Today/ESPN poll. Tennessee is now 0-2 when trying to upset #1 from that position.

TENNESSEE VS. STANFORD  DEC. 20, 2011  Prior to the game versus Baylor on Nov. 27, the last time Tennessee played the nation’s number oneranked team was on Jan. 22, 2007 in Knoxville. The Lady Vols missed charity tosses down the stretch to lose 74-70 to top-ranked Duke after mounting a furious comeback rally.  The Blue Devils opened the game with a nightmarish 19-0 run-out, as the Lady Vols fell into a 21-point hole (28-7 at 9:23 in the first half) before rallying to narrow the halftime deficit to 11 points (38-27).  Free throw defense stymied Tennessee, as the Lady Vols connected on just 8-17 (.471) for the game. All-American Candace Parker managed just 1-7 from the free throw line. Good Neighbors  The 2011 meeting with Miami in the State Farm TipOff Classic marked the Lady Vols eighth appearance in the State Farm TipOff Classic and the fifth time to host the event. Tennessee now has a 6-2 record in TipOff games. Making a Claim  In the first TipOff in 1993, Lady Vol coach Pat Summitt picked up her 500th career victory.  In the TipOff in 1998, Purdue and Coach Carolyn Peck halted the Lady Vols school record 46-game consecutive winning streak.  Tennessee’s last opening game home loss to start a season came against Louisiana Tech in the 1999 TipOff Classic, 69-64, as UT failed to convert free throws in the waning seconds.  In Tennessee’s most recent TipOff appearance in 2009 in Knoxville, the Lady Vols spoiled Brittney Griner’s first collegiate game with a 74-65 victory over the Lady Bears. Going into the Hall  Lady Vol Olympian and All-American Nikki McCray Pinson will be a member of the 2012 Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame Induction Class. Also being inducted are: Nancy Fahey (Coach), Pamela McGee (Player), Inge Nissen (Player), Robin Roberts (Contributor), and Dawn Staley (Player). McGee was introduced at the 2011 TipOff in Knoxville. Rookie Starts  A true rookie got a starting nod on the opening day of the 2011-12 season.  When Coach Pat Summitt started freshman Ariel Massengale against Pepperdine in the opening game of the 2011-12 season, it marked only the 14th time in her coaching career that a freshman started her very first game at Tennessee -- out of a total of 161 all-time Lady Vols who have played at UT.  The list of opening day rookie starters: Taber Spani, 2009, Glory Johnson and Shekinna Stricklen, 2008, Angie Bjorklund, 2007, Candace Parker, 2005, Shyra Ely 2001, Ashley Robinson 2000, Gwen Jackson 1999, Kyra Elzy 1996, Chamique Holdsclaw 1995, Tiffani Johnson 1994, Bridgette Gordon and Sheila Frost 1985. The Nod  With Ariel Massengale getting the opening day start against Pepperdine, she became the 61st rookie all-time to earn a starting assignment at UT. Last season, Meighan Simmons, a 5-9 point guard from Cibolo, Texas, became the 60th rookie all-time to earn a starting assignment at Tennessee.  The previous year, rookie Kamiko Williams (59th all-time) started against Arkansas while her classmate and fellow rookie Taber Spani, became the 13th frosh to start her very first game at UT and the 58th rookie overall.  In 2008-09, a record number of players – FIVE – were called on to start for the Lady Vols as rookies: Shekinna Stricklen (starter number 53), Glory Johnson (number 54), Briana Bass (55), Alicia Manning (56) and Kelley Cain (57) all earned starting assignments.

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.

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.

LOS ANGELES - Meighan Simmons scored 18 points, Glory Johnson added 17 and No. 6 Tennessee made 18 of its first 20 shots in beating UCLA 85-64 on Saturday. Vicki Baugh had 14 points and 12 rebounds, Taber Spani added 14 points and Shekinna Stricklen scored 11 for the Lady Vols, who shot 36 of 52 (69.6 percent) from the floor -- not far off the school record of 72.1 percent against Old Dominion on Jan. 4, 1989. 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. 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. 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. 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.
