Lady Vols roll past Stetson, 99-34

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WVLT) -- Glory Johnson had 14 points and 10 rebounds as Tennessee cruised to a 99-34 win over Stetson on Saturday in the first round of the NCAA tournament's Dayton region.

The No. 1 seed Lady Volunteers (32-2) have their sights set on a return to the Final Four after two seasons of frustration in the tournament.

Sixteenth-seeded Stetson managed to hit a few early shots to keep up with Tennessee, which held a 10-9 lead with 15:13 left in the first half. The Lady Vols' size and shooting became too much for the Hatters, though, and a 23-0 run put the game away early.

Tennessee shot 57.9 percent and had a 34-13 rebounding margin in the first half, and coach Pat Summitt emptied her bench before halftime.

Tierra Brown, Victoria McGowan and Natasha Graboski each scored seven points for the Hatters (20-13), who shot just 21.2 percent in the first half.

Tennessee will play the winner of the Texas-Marquette game Monday night at 7.
