KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - The #6/7 Lady Vols used a 30-0 run in the first half to run away with a 90-47 victory over Chattanooga on Tuesday night at Thompson-Boling Arena. Tennessee moved to 10-3 with the easy win in its final home non-conference game this season. The Lady Vols will play their third game in five nights on Thursday as Georgia comes to Knoxville for a 7 p.m., tip-off on CSS.
Freshman Ariel Massengale (19 points) and Isabelle Harrison (13 points) each scored career-highs in the win as four Lady Vols scored in double-figures. Glory Johnson tallied a double-double with 10 points and a game-high 13 rebounds. Meighan Simmons also scored 10 points.
For Johnson, it was her third straight double-double and sixth of the season.
The Lady Vols outrebounded the Lady Mocs, 55-28, while shooting 47.2 percent from the floor. Chattanooga was limited to just 30.4 percent for the game including 20.7 (6-of-29) in the first half.
The game marked the return of junior guard Kamiko Williams, who missed the first 12 games recovering from a torn ACL. Williams played 16 minutes and had two points, four assists, two steals and three rebounds.
The Lady Mocs (8-4) were led by former Lady Vol Faith Dupree, who had 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting.
Tennessee led 10-8 with 16:34 left in the first half before that 30-0 run, which made it 40-8 with 5:48 left in the half on a jumper by Cierra Burdick.
