No. 5 Lady Vols rout Alabama 110-45

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Glory Johnson scored 19 points off the bench as No. 5 Tennessee cruised to a 110-45 win over Alabama on Thursday night.

The Lady Volunteers (14-2, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) have won 37 consecutive games against the Crimson Tide, their second longest active streak against another team. Tennessee has beaten South Carolina 38 straight times.

Alabama (11-4, 0-2) hit only one of its first 13 shots and went scoreless for seven minutes early in the first half. That allowed Tennessee to take a 24-3 lead with 12:16 before halftime off a jumper by Taber Spani.

The Lady Vols used 59.4 percent shooting in the first half to take a 59-22 lead at halftime. They extended their margin to 67 points in the second half before Alabama's Jasmine Robinson hit a jumper to close the game.

Tierney Jenkins led the Tide with 11 points.
