COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Meighan Simmons scored 26 points as No. 11 Tennessee raced past No. 17 Texas A&M 76-55 on Sunday.
Simmons scored nearly as many points (15) as the Aggies in the first half, as the Lady Vols roared to a 36-20 lead over the first 20 minutes and A&M never threatened after the break. Tennessee, playing without guard Ariel Massengale, snapped A&M's nine-game winning streak in its first visit to College Station. Massengale suffered a face injury in the first half of UT's Thursday victory against Florida.
Simmons was 12 of 19 from the field. Bashaara Graves, Isabelle Harrison, and Andraya Carter each chipped in 10 points for Tennessee (16-4, 5-2 SEC).
Courtney Walker led Texas A&M (16-5, 6-1) with 20 points. Courtney Williams scored 14 points, and Karla Gilbert added 14 points with 11 rebounds for the Aggies.
Twenty years after winning gold in Atlanta, members of the 1996 U.S. Olympic team reunited and walked down memory lane while being honored by the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame.
At Saturday's Women's Basketball Hall of Fame induction, this year's class -- including Natalie Williams and Jackie Stiles -- spoke about the ties that bind everyone in the women's hoops world.
Disappointed by being left off the U.S. Olympic volleyball team? Just reach the Olympics in another sport. Natalie Williams, one of six Hall of Fame inductees, was that athletically gifted.
