LSU falls to No. 5 Tennessee 75-58
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Isabelle Harrison scored a season-high 25 points Thursday as No. 5 Tennessee rolled to a 75-58 victory over LSU.
Andraya Carter added 13 points as Tennessee (16-3, 6-0 SEC) rebounded from Monday's 88-71 loss at No. 6 Notre Dame, which ended the Lady Vols' 11-game win streak.
The game matched a pair of former colleagues in Tennessee coach Holly Warlick and LSU coach Nikki Caldwell, who were assistants on Pat Summitt's Tennessee staff from 2002-08. Caldwell and Warlick also both played for Summitt at Tennessee.
Their latest meeting coincided with the Southeastern Conference's We Back Pat Week, an initiative dedicated to supporting Summitt's foundation in the fight against Alzheimer's.
Warlick and Caldwell headed to the stands just before the opening tip and embraced Summitt and gave her flowers as the crowd chanted "We Back Pat!"
Raigyne Moncrief and Danielle Ballard each scored 15 points for LSU (10-9, 4-3).
