Fellow rookie Shanna Zolman chipped in 15 points, as did sophomore Shyra Ely and senior Gwen Jackson. Jackson also peeled down 10 rebounds in 24 minutes of action, giving her a double-double.
''I told our team they did a lot of good things today,'' said Lady Vol Head Coach Pat Summitt. ''We demonstrated great tempo on offense, and we executed our primary break and our half-court offense. I thought our freshmen played well. Tye'sha Fluker has a great presence and could be a big difference for us this season.''
Two 3-pointers from junior guard Tasha Butts helped UT grab a 16-7 advantage with 14:23 to play in the first half. Seven points from Jackson, put-backs from Brittany Jackson and Ely and the first two of Fluker's 20 points highlighted a 17-0 Lady Vol run that moved the score to 29-7. The advantage continued to grow as Tennessee outscored its foe 34-15 over the last 10:42 to head into the locker room with a commanding 63-24 lead.
The second half was more of the same as Tennessee made a 24-7 run, finished by two straight buckets from Fluker, padding the lead to 87-31. Zolman, the leading scorer in Indiana high school history, hit a 3-pointer and two layups as Tennessee boosted the lead to 74 points (114-40).
''It was a tough start for us,'' said 08 Stockholm Head Coach Anders Hard. ''You want to try to keep the score down, but it's difficult against a team as good as Tennessee. Overall we were really impressed and learned a lot against a very talented squad.''
Tennessee opens for real next Sunday, Nov. 10th, welcoming 2002 Final Four participant Oklahoma into Thompson-Boling Arena for the 10th annual State Farm Classic. Tipoff is set for 3 p.m.
