Lady Vols Vs. Texas

Saturday, December 7, 2019




For the 41st time, Tennessee and Texas will do battle in women's basketball. The Lady Vols lead the series, 25-15, after winning the past two meetings.

The No. 17/19 Lady Vols (7-0) play host to the Longhorns (4-4) at Thompson-Boling Arena in a 2:02 PM contest on Sunday. The match-up is part of the 10-game Big 12-SEC Challenge, with Sunday's tilts closing out the week-long competition.

The Lady Vols are playing their fifth of six straight games on Rocky Top after opening with two of the season's first three contests on the road. After facing Texas, UT welcomes Colorado State (December 11, 7:00 PM) to The Summitt to close out the fall semester slate of home games.

Tennessee remained unbeaten last Sunday, flying past Air Force, 81-54, on the strength of a season-best 54.8 percent shooting performance.

Texas comes to Knoxville after dropping two out of three contests at the Rainbow Wahine Showdown in Honolulu. The Longhorns fell to No. 12 NC State (84-73) and Hawaii (73-60), and picked up a victory in between over North Texas (63-57).

Coverage begins at 1:30 PM on Jewel 95.5 FM WSMG.
