KNOXVILLE (WVLT) -- The Lady Vols look to continue their hot play Wednesday when they host the 24th-ranked Old Dominion Monarchs at Thompson-Boling Arena at 7pm.

Pat Summitt's squad (6-0) has played and beaten four ranked opponents already this season, including No. 4 North Carolina Sunday, 83-79. Forward Candace Parker tallied 21 points and 16 rebounds against the Lady Tar Heels. She leads the team with 22.5 points and ten rebounds per game.

The Monarchs (6-2) are fresh off a 79-73 home upset of No. 20 Michigan State. Their only two losses are to No. 2 UConn and fourth-ranked Stanford. ODU is led by T.J. Jordan, who is averaging 17 points per game.

The Lady Vols and Monarchs have met 40 times, with Summitt's team holding a 31-9 series advantage. The teams last played last December, with the Lady Vols getting a 75-59 win.
