Lady Vols Hand Holly Warlick Her 100th Career Victory

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Mercedes Russell had 15 points and 11 rebounds as No. 23 Tennessee defeated Arkansas 75-57 on Thursday to give Lady Volunteers coach Holly Warlick her 100th career victory.

Warlick improved her career record to 100-28 and became the 17th Division I women’s coach to earn 100 victories within her first four seasons.

Tennessee (14-8, 5-4 SEC) earned a measure of revenge after a 64-59 defeat at Arkansas on Jan. 14, the Lady Vols’ first loss to a team with a sub-.500 record since 1979.

Diamond DeShields ended her recent slump by scoring 15 points, Te’a Cooper had 13 points and Andraya Carter added 10. DeShields, the Lady Vols’ leading scorer, had a combined nine turnovers and five points in the two games leading up to this one.

Jessica Jackson scored 18 and Devin Cosper added 17 for Arkansas (9-14, 4-6), which lost its fourth straight.
