KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WVLT) -- Angie Bjorklund scored 17 points and No. 4 Tennessee completed its ninth undefeated run through Southeastern Conference play with an 80-60 victory over LSU on Sunday.

Tennessee hit 17 of its first 25 shots while holding LSU to 5-of-26 shooting. A 3-pointer by Alicia Manning with 3:29 left in the first half gave Tennessee a 44-20 lead.

The Lady Tigers made three straight 3-pointers in the span of 40 seconds, then a pair of free throws by LaSondra Barrett with 44 seconds to go before halftime cut the margin to 44-31.

LSU got within 69-59 on a layup by Barrett with 2:21 remaining in the game but scored only one more point the rest of the way.
