KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Ariel Massengale had 23 points and a career-high seven rebounds Thursday night as No. 8 Tennessee defeated Mississippi 94-70 on a night when the Lady Vols surpassed 5 million in all-time home attendance.
Tennessee (13-2, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) beat Mississippi (9-7, 0-2) for the 25th consecutive time.
Massengale, coming off a career-high 28 points in a win at Georgia on Sunday, reached 20 points in consecutive games for the first time in her career.
The announced crowd of 10,382 increased Tennessee's all-time home attendance to 5,006,586.
NCAA spokesman Rick Nixon said earlier in the week there isn't a way to verify if Tennessee is the first women's program to reach the 5 million mark because the NCAA doesn't measure each school's all-time cumulative attendance.
Mississippi's Tia Faleru,  who came in averaging 16 points and an SEC-best 9.9 rebounds, finished with eight points and nine rebounds.
