Notes...

  • Sidney Spencer missed her first free throw in 15 attempts, but made the second one to seal the game.
  • Junior Dominique Redding earned her first career start.
  • Alexis Hornbuckle failed to start the game for the first time this season. It ended her streak of 32 straight starts dating back to last season.
  • Candace Parker is now the only Lady Vol to start every game this season.
  • Parker moves into sole possession of 10th place on the all-time Lady Vol single-season blocks list with 53 during the 2006 campaign.
  • Hornbuckle has made at least one steal for the 32nd consecutive game. She has now picked at least one pass in 52 of 60 career games.
  • Lindsey Moss returned to the court for the first time since surgery to repair her nasal displaced fracture.
  • Tennessee trailed by as many as 14 in the first half of the Vanderbilt game in Nashville earlier this season and trailed 32-37 at the half. The Lady Vols trailed by 14 in tonight's opening period and trailed 31-36 at the half.
  • In the meeting in Nashville, UT took its first lead at the 14:53 mark on a steal by Shanna Zolman and a layup by Hornbuckle. In tonight's game, UT took its first lead at 2:22 on a Hornbuckle free throw.
  • Tonight marked the first time all season that UT did not have a three-pointer in the first half (0-4). In fact, the Lady Vols recorded their lowest three-point total in a game this season, finishing with just one trey on the night.
  • Zolman drained the first trey of the night for the Lady Vols. She has now made a three-pointer in 24 of 25 games this season and in 103 of her 133 career games.
  • Zolman has been held to single-digit scoring just six times this season, including tonight.
  • Liz Sherwood, the nation's leader in field goal percentage, shot 82% percent tonight (9-11), the highest percentage by a Lady Vol opponent this season.
  • Vanderbilt's 56.6% field goal percentage is the highest by any UT opponent this season. Last time a Tennessee opponent shot over 50% was against Auburn on Jan. 20, 2005, the Tigers shot 58.1% in an 81-71, UT victory.
  • UT was 0-2 in games televised by ESPN2 this season coming into tonight.
