Pete Maravich Assembly Center   |   Baton Rouge, La.

  • The #10/9 Lady Vols (22-5/11-3 SEC) play their final regular-season road game on Thursday night, as they face #RV/23 LSU (19-9/7-7 SEC) in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center in Baton Rouge, La.

  • Tennessee and the Lady Tigers are slated to tip off at 8:05 p.m. CT/9:05 p.m. ET, and the game will be carried live on CSS and streamed on ESPN3.

  • This will mark the second meeting this season between these teams, as Nikki Caldwell's (then) #16/16 club upset (then) #5/5 Tennessee in Knoxville on Jan. 2, 80-77.

  • The Lady Vols will be trying to prevent the first-ever season home/away sweep by LSU and only the second such sweep by an SEC team over UT in school history.

  • UT comes into the game having won two in a row and eight of its last nine games after holding off a feisty Missouri squad on Sunday, 56-50, in Columbia.

  • LSU is in the midst of a rough patch, having lost four straight and five of its last six games.

  • The Lady Tigers are coming off a 57-53 home setback to Arkansas on Sunday that dropped LSU to 7-7 in the league and into a tie for fifth in the standings.

  • Tennessee is tied for second in the SEC with Texas A&M, but the Lady Vols have the tiebreaker edge over the Aggies by virtue of a 76-55 win in College Station on Jan. 26.
