OXFORD, Miss. - A well-balanced attack led the No. 10 Lady Vols to their third win in a row and a sweep of games in Mississippi with a 66-56 win at Ole Miss.

Four Lady Vols scored in double-figures led Glory Johnson, who netted 13 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Shekinna Stricklen scored 12 points as both she and Johnson made 5-of-9 shots from the floor.

Tennessee took control of the game midway through the first half and held off the pesky Rebels. Down 15-14 with 9:37 left in the first half, a Stricklen layup with 9:10 left in the half and the Lady Vols never trailed again.

The Lady Vols led by as many as 12 points with 5:07 left in the second half on a free throw by Meighan Simmons, which made it 58-46. Ole Miss had trimmed the margin to four points at 50-46 on a 3-pointer by Amber Singletary with 8:28 left in regulation.
