Red Hot Lady Vols Scorch Dores
Kara Lawson scored a career-high 31 points, hitting 9-of-12 from the field, 6-of-6 from behind the arc and 7-of-7 from the charity stripe. Classmate Gwen Jackson added 19 points, connecting on 8-of-12 field goals and each of her three free throws. No. 3 Tennessee was also dialed in, shooting 58 percent of their field goals (29-of-50), including a sizzling 66 percent from long distance (10-of-15), and 95 percent from the foul line (23-of-24). The Lady Vols added their 18th straight home win over Vanderbilt, their fifth straight in the series and their 16th straight this season since a Jan. 4 overtime defeat at UConn. UT put the game away with a 16-0 run during a three-minute span of the second half that began after Vanderbilt closed to within nine points on a basket by Chantelle Anderson with 7:21 left, and ended with the Lady Vols sporting an 84-59 cushion at the 3:11 mark. Shanna Zolman and Shyra Ely combined for 30 points off the bench, scoring 16 and 14 points, respectively, to help offset a strong 35-point scoring performance by Anderson. Abi Ramsey added a career high 20 points for the Lady Dores, knocking down 6-of-9 three-pointers. Tennessee (25-3, 13-0) wraps up the regular season at Kentucky on Sunday before preparing for the SEC tournament which gets underway on Thursday, March 6, in Little Rock.
