Lady Vols set for Senior Night at TBA

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)— Tennessee (17-10, 6-8 SEC) closes out the home portion of its regular season schedule on Thursday by welcoming Vanderbilt (6-21, 1-13 SEC) to Thompson-Boling Arena.
It's Senior Night for two Lady Vols, as Cheridene Green and Meme Jackson will be recognized on-court prior to the game. Fans should plan to be in their seats by 6:40 p.m. to catch the festivities. Tip-off is slated for 7:02 p.m. ET on The Summitt in a contest that is being televised by the SEC Network.
After winning five of six, Tennessee has dropped back-to-back games vs. ranked foes No. 21/22 Texas A&M (79-62) and No. 13/13 South Carolina (82-67). The Lady Vols hope to bounce back vs. a Commodores club they held off in Nashville on Feb. 3, 82-65, to win their 10th straight in the series. That game, however, was closer than the score indicates, with UT outscoring VU, 29-16, in the final frame to earn the win. The Lady Vols used a 25-9 closing run to blow open a one-point game with 6:41 remaining.
Vanderbilt comes to Knoxville on an eight-game losing streak, but the Commodores have not been an easy foe to vanquish. On Sunday, VU put up a very competitive fight before eventually suffering an 86-70 loss at the hands of No. 6/6 Mississippi State.
Thursday night's contest marks the 82nd meeting between these in-state rivals. For series history, please see page five of the game notes PDF.
