FREEPORT, Bahamas (AP) - Meighan Simmons scored 32 points, including eight 3-pointers, to lead No. 3 Tennessee to a 76-67 win over Virginia on Thursday in the opening game of the Junkanoo Jam.
Simmons, who hadn't scored more than 14 points in a game this season, finished two short of her career high.
Tennessee (6-0) got off to another slow start and trailed by four at halftime before the Lady Vols took over. They scored the first six points in the second half and led by as many as 12. The Cavaliers cut it to 72-67 with 1:23 left but could get no closer.
Ataira Franklin scored 19 of her 25 points in the first half to lead Virginia (3-3).
