KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee junior forward Glory Johnson has been named Southeastern Conference player of the week for a second time this season.

After coach Pat Summitt benched her for not showing enough effort, Johnson came off the bench to average 15.5 points, 12 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals and a block in wins over LSU and Rutgers.

The Knoxville native hit 58.8 percent of her field goals and 73.3 percent of her free throws in those two games.

Johnson scored a season-high 19 points and grabbed 15 rebounds to lead the Lady Volunteers against the Lady Tigers, her fourth double-double this season and 14th of her career. She was one rebound shy of recording the double-double in the first half.

Tennessee (13-2, 1-0) hosts Alabama on Thursday.
