FOR STARTERS

END OF A STREAK, DEJA VU

  • UT entered the game with a 10-game winning streak. In 2007-08, the season of Tennessee's most recent NCAA title, the #4/4 Cardinal ended a 10-game Big Orange win streak with a 73-69 upset of #1/1 Lady Vols in overtime at Maples on Dec. 22, 2007.
  • The Lady Vols have lost four-straight games at Maples Pavilion. The last victory at Stanford was Dec. 4, 2005, when #2/1 UT triumphed #12/11 SU, 74-67.

AGAINST THE RANKS

  • Holly Warlick is 8-7 against ranked teams.

PLAY THAT "D", TENNESSEE

  • Heading into the matchup, UT was only allowing only 58.6 points per contest. Stanford's 76 points ties an opponent team-high this year, which Georgia Tech also scored.

  • Along with Harrison, junior Ariel Massengale (17 points), sophomore Bashaara Graves (14 points) and senior Meighan Simmons (15 points) all hit double figures in scoring.

REBOUNDING

  • Stanford outrebounded Tennessee 43-40, marking the first time this season the Big Orange has been outrebounded.
