Slugish Lady Vols Still Good Enough To Beat Auburn
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) – Andraya Carter hit three first-half 3-pointers, scoring 11 points, and No. 6 Tennessee smothered Auburn defensively in a 54-42 victory on Thursday night.
The Lady Vols (15-2, 5-0 Southeastern Conference) weren’t threatened much in the second half, with both teams matching season-lows in points. They carry an 11-game win streak into Monday night’s game at No. 7 Notre Dame.
Jordan Reynolds also had 11 points on 5-of-6 shooting to match her career high for Tennessee, which held its fifth straight opponent below 60 points. Cierra Burdick scored 10 points and Isabelle Harrison had nine points and 11 rebounds after a scoreless first half.
Tra’Cee Tanner led the Tigers (9-9, 0-5) with 14 points. Hasina Muhammad, Brandy Montgomery and Katie Frerking scored eight apiece for Auburn.
