AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Brittainey Raven scored 21 points and No. 6
Texas continued its best start in 20 years with a 73-59 win over
No. 7 Tennessee on Sunday.
Kat Nash added 12 points for the Longhorns, who are 9-0 for the
first time since the 1987-88 season.
Raven and Nash made two key 3-pointers in a 10-1 run midway
through the second half that broke open a tough game and sent the
Longhorns to a win over the highest-ranked opponent in coach Gail
Goestenkors' two seasons.
Freshman Glory Johnson scored 13 to lead Tennessee (7-2) despite
missing most of the first half with foul trouble.
Tennessee is the defending national champion and pounded Texas
92-67 in Knoxville last season. The Lady Vols lost five key players
from that squad, including national player of the year Candace
Parker. The loss keeps Tennessee coach Pat Summitt 10 wins away
from career victory No. 1,000.
