Lady Vols dominate Rutgers, 87-51

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Taber Spani scored 22 points, one of five Tennessee players with double-digit scoring, as the No. 5 Lady Vols routed Rutgers 87-51 on Thursday.

Tennessee (12-2) jumped out to a fast lead, and a 3-pointer at the baseline from Angie Bjorklund with 18:34 in the first half capped a 9-2 run to open the game. That shot gave Bjorklund her 267th career trey, making her Tennessee's all-time leader in 3-point baskets.

Tennessee used strong shooting to build an 18-point margin but cooled off with about four minutes left before halftime.

Rutgers (7-6) took advantage and used a 11-4 run to close out the first half, cutting Tennessee's halftime lead to 40-29.

The Lady Vols pulled away with nine unanswered points to open the second half.

April Sykes led Rutgers with 15 points.
