No. 9 Tennessee whips Mizzou

Updated: January 10, 2013

Meighan Simmons scored 18 points and pulled down five rebounds as No. 9 Tennessee had an easy time with Missouri, winning 84-39 at Thompson-Boling Arena.

Bashaara Graves had 16 points and eight boards for the Lady Vols (12-3, 3-0
SEC), who received 12 points and 15 rebounds from Isabelle Harrison in the
program’s largest in-conference margin of victory since a 65-point win over
Alabama a little more than two years ago.

Morgan Eye poured in 18 points — all from beyond the arc — for the Tigers
(12-5, 1-2), who shot just 19.7 percent from the field. Eye set an arena
record with 17 three-point tries, snapping the previous mark of 16 by
Tennessee’s Angie Bjorklund from 2008.

The hosts led 12-3 early on, and Mizzou fell behind 48-21 after 20 minutes of
play thanks to its poor shooting.

Graves finished off a three-point play with just over 6 1/2 minutes played in
the second half which gave the Vols a 59-26 edge, and Tennessee cruised the
rest of the way.
