Lady Vols topple Florida 64-56

By Associated Press
Feb. 8, 2015

 GAINESVILLE, Fla. - With her team trailing Florida 30-28 at halftime, Tennessee coach Holly Warlick gave the Lady Vols a message. It wasn't about the game of basketball itself, but rather about her team needing to display energy and heart. The No. 6 Lady Vols responded to that message, turning their game around in the second half and defeating the Gators 64-56 on Sunday. "Maybe I need to make my halftime speeches before the game starts," Warlick said. Isabelle Harrison led Tennessee (20-3, 10-0 Southeastern Conference) with 17 points and Jordan Reynolds added 13 more to keep the Lady Vols undefeated in conference play and pick up their 16th win in the last 17 games.

Tennessee jumped out to an 11-4 lead in the first seven minutes — with all of the Lady Vols' points coming from Harrison in the early run — before Florida (11-12, 3-7) clawed its way back, making nine of its final 17 first-half shots and 6-of-8 free throw attempts to take a 30-28 lead into intermission. "Florida played hard," Warlick said. "I'm shocked at their record. I just think they've got a solid team and they don't have quit in them." The Gators extended that lead to five on two separate occasions in the second half before Tennessee went on a 21-6 run over 8:17 to take a 10-point lead with about five minutes to play. Five different UT players scored on the run, with Cierra Burdick leading the way with six points.


Free throws make big difference for Lady Vols in win

By Dan Fleser
Jan. 26, 2015

 The serenity of the free throw line became Tennessee's salvation Sunday afternoon. The unusual circumstances of a hard-fought SEC women's basketball game against Georgia couldn't infringe on this space. Five different Lady Vols went through their varied routines there and achieved the same result. They made shot after shot until Isabelle Harrison missed her final attempt with 46 seconds left. By then, Tennessee was 20-for-21, completing an otherwise sketchy offensive performance. The uncanny accuracy assured a 59-51 victory before a crowd of 13,428 at Thompson-Boling Arena.

The free-throw exhibition was Tennessee's best since making all 20 attempts against LSU in 1988. "Free throws are always very important, especially in tight games like this," said UT guard Jordan Reynolds, who was 5-for-5 from the line. "We shot very well from the free throw line, but had we not, we probably would have lost the game. "Our coaches are always telling us that free throws are free points and no one is distracting you. You just have to get up to the line and focus."


Lady Vols roll past LSU for 15th consecutive home win

By Dan Fleser
Jan. 23, 2015

 While one Tennessee winning streak ended Monday, another continued on Thursday. The Lady Vols returned to Thompson-Boling Arena and scored a 75-58 SEC women's basketball victory over LSU. UT now has won 15 in a row at home, a streak extending back to last season. Isabelle Harrison led No. 5 Tennessee (16-3, 6-0 SEC) with a season-high 25 points. The victory was a positive follow-up to an 88-77 loss at Notre Dame, which ended UT's 11-game win streak overall. Raigyne Moncrief led LSU (10-9, 4-3) with 15 points.

Both Tennessee coach Holly Warlick and LSU's Nikki Caldwell presented former UT coach Pat Summitt with flowers beforehand. The crowd chanted "We Back Pat", giving voice to the night's Alzheimer's awareness theme. Two teams known more for their defense and rebounding began by staging a shooting exhibition. The Lady Vols hit three of their first four 3-point attempts over LSU's zone. They returned to a more traditional form of scoring by feeding the ball to Harrison, who scored 11 first-half points.


Jewell Loyd leads No. 6 Irish to 88-77 win over No. 5 UT Vols

By Associated Press
Jan. 20, 2015

 SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Jewell Loyd scored 34 points, Lindsay Allen added 15 and No. 6 Notre Dame made 58 percent of its shots to beat fifth-ranked Tennessee 88-77 Monday night, ending an 11-game winning streak for the Lady Vols. The Fighting Irish (17-2) beat the Lady Vols for the fifth straight after losing the first 20-games in the series. It's only the second time in 10 tries Tennessee (15-3) has lost at Notre Dame. Just like in the other five losses to the Irish, the Lady Vols were hurt by Notre Dame's best player. Loyd made 13 of 23 shots, hitting big shots every time the Irish needed one. Tennessee cut the lead to 42-41 early in the second half on a layup by Isabelle Harrison and cut it again to 46-44 on a rebound basket by Graves.

The Irish responded with a 6-0 spurt on a rebound by Allen, a basket inside by Briana Turner and a backdoor layup by Loyd to extend the lead to eight points. When Ariel Massengale hit a 3-pointer, Loyd responded with a three-point play. The Irish eventually used a 9-3 run, highlighted by a 3-pointer by Loyd and an alley-oop layup by Brianna Turner on a pass from Allen to open a 66-52 lead. Tennessee narrowed the lead 80-74 on a layup by Bashaara Graves with 56 seconds left, but couldn't get any closer. Graves led Tennessee with 22 points and Cierra Burdick added 15.


No. 6 Lady Vols look to end struggles vs. No. 7 Notre Dame

by Associated Press
Jan. 19, 2015

 Tennessee needs no reminders about its recent history with Notre Dame. After winning the first 20 games in this series, the Lady Volunteers have lost to Notre Dame by double-digit margins each of the last four seasons. That gives the sixth-ranked Lady Vols (15-2) loads of incentive as they put their 11-game winning streak on the line Monday at No. 7 Notre Dame (16-2). "I think we have a great opportunity to go down there and get a great win against a good basketball team," Tennessee senior forward Cierra Burdick said. "In my career, I've never beaten Notre Dame, and I definitely want to check that off the list."

A victory also would help the Lady Vols wipe away the memories of their last trip to Notre Dame, when they fell 72-44 during the 2011-12 season in the second-most lopsided defeat of former Tennessee coach Pat Summitt's 38-year tenure. "They had their way with us, and it was embarrassing," Burdick said. "It was on national television. The score was taped all around our locker room for the next month. The walls were covered. We don't want that to happen again." Although Notre Dame has won each of its last four games with Tennessee by an average margin of 17 points, the Lady Vols have reason to feel confident.


Lady Vols struggle early against Auburn, 54-42

By Dan Fleser
Jan. 15, 2015

 AUBURN, Ala. - Tennessee cleared the way to a playing date with Notre Dame but not without some struggle first Thursday night. The Lady Vols lost nearly half of 13-point second half lead at one point before recovering for a 54-42 SEC women's basketball victory over Auburn at Auburn Arena. Andraya Carter and Jordan Reynolds combined to lead No. 6 Tennessee (15-2, 5-0 SEC) with 11 points apiece. UT stretched its winning streak to 11 in advance of Monday's showdown against the No. 7 Fighting Irish (16-2) in South Bend, Ind.

Tra'Cee Tanner led Auburn (9-9, 0-5) with 14 points. Tennessee's early challenge wasn't getting the ball inside against Auburn's zone. Instead the Lady Vols struggled to convert high percentage chances. Center Isabelle Harrison epitomized UT's plight, missing all six of her first-half attempts. She missed two shots on one early trip down the floor, missing a layup and a rebound chance. Before the first media timeout she missed two more point-blank attempts.

    "Let me just tell you one thing, Trisha. Don't take donkeys to the Kentucky Derby."

    The message was a valuable one: The best coaches had the best players. Tennessee (36-2) clearly did Tuesday night in winning its second consecutive national championship and eighth overall.
