Zolman was 4-of-7 from 3-point range in helping Tennessee (18-3, 7-0 SEC) improve to 39-6 in the all-time series with Vandy. She scored 10 of UT's first 13 points of the second half, turning a 37-34 halftime deficit into a lead the visitors never lost.
"Shanna Zolman today took a lot of pressure off everyone," Summitt said.
Vanderbilt (13-7, 3-4) shot 61 percent from the floor in the opening minutes and built a commanding 25-9 lead. The momentum shifted just before intermission, however. Tennessee shot 60 percent in the second half and the Commodores just 39 percent. UT's superior depth proved crucial in wearing down Vandy.
