NASHVILLE (WVLT) -- The Lady Vols overcame a lackluster first half to oust Florida 92-75 in the SEC Tournament quarterfinal round Friday.
Tennessee will play the winner of the South Carolina-Georgia game which tips off later Friday night.
Glory Johnson scored a career-high 25 points to lead the Lady Vols and Shekinna Stricklen chipped in 20 to propel Tennessee into the semifinal round.
The Lady Vols only led 38-36 at halftime against a Gators team they blew out twice during the regular season. But Tennessee used six straight points by Johnson at the start of the second half to blow the game wide open.
The semifinal contest tips off at 4 p.m. Eastern time Saturday.
