KNOXVILLE, Tennessee (Ticker) -- No. 2 Tennessee had no trouble extending its Southeastern Conference home winning streak to 32 games as Kara Lawson scored 22 points to lead a balanced attack in a 119-52 rout of Mississippi.
Tennessee (24-1, 10-0) has not lost a league game at home since December 8, 1996 and this one was never in doubt after the Lady Vols raced to a 51-23 halftime lead behind 59 percent shooting (20-of-34).
Lawson made 8-of-12 shots in the game, including 5-of-8 from 3-point range. April McDivitt matched a career high with 19 points off the bench on 7-of-9 shooting as Tennessee posted its eighth straight win over Mississippi. The Lady Vols lead the all-time series, 24-7.
Tennessee also got 12 points from Ashley Robinson, a freshman who was 6-of-6 from the field, and 11 apiece from Michelle Snow and freshman Tasha Butts.
Sherika Wright scored 14 points but was the only player in double figures for the Lady Rebels (15-7, 3-6), who shot 33 percent (19-of-57). Mississippi has lost seven of its last 11 games following an 11-0 start.
