No. 5 Tennessee Lady Vols rout ETSU 102-53

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Angie Bjorklund scored 16 points and hit four 3-pointers, tying her with Shanna Zolman as Tennessee's all-time 3-point scoring leader, as the No. 5 Lady Volunteers beat East Tennessee State 102-53 on Wednesday night.

The Lady Vols (11-2) used a 9-0 run to take an early lead, and a layup by Kelley Cain with 12:30 in the first half gave them a 23-11 lead.

Tennessee used its size advantage to take over the lane and got into the double-bonus with over six minutes left in the first half. They used 11-of-21 shooting from the free throw line to push their lead to 46-32 at halftime and pulled away with a 13-0 run early in the second half.

The Lady Vols outrebounded the Lady Bucaneers 53-34 and got 20 second-chance points. ETSU also committed 20 turnovers, which Tennessee turned into 26 points.

Destiny Mitchell and Gwen Washington led ETSU (3-6) with 10 points.
