No. 6 Lady Vols beat No. 25 Vanderbilt 87-64

KNOXVILLE — Shekinna Stricklen scored 20 points before injuring her right knee late in No. 6 Tennessee’s 87-64 win over No. 25 Vanderbilt on Sunday.

Stricklen, a preseason all-American who leads Tennessee with 15.3 points, hit the floor clutching her knee and screaming after going for a rebound with 3 minutes left and the Lady Vols comfortably ahead. Stricklen was carried to the locker room by team trainers.

The Lady Volunteers (13-4, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) held a 45-43 lead when she hit a layup with 15:17 to go, launching a 16-2 run that put the game out of reach for the Commodores. Isabelle Harrison stole the ball from Vandy’s Christina Foggie, and Ariel Massengale hit a layup on the break to make it 61-45 with 10:26 to play.

Glory Johnson added 16 points and 13 rebounds for the Lady Vols.

Foggie tied her career high of 27 points to lead Vanderbilt (14-3, 2-2).
