Lady Vols top Vandy to stay unbeaten in SECJan 16, 2011 - 3:32 AM Knoxville, TN (Sports Network) - Meighan Simmons posted 17 points and Angie Bjorklund 14, as fifth-ranked Tennessee weathered a shaky shooting performance to earn a 68-56 victory over Vanderbilt at Thompson-Boling Arena.

While Tennessee did not have its best shooting night, it dominated in other aspects of the game. The Lady Vols held a 52-39 rebounding advantage and limited the Commodores (12-6, 3-2) to 33 percent shooting.
Jasmine Lister posted 17 points to lead Vanderbilt, which had won its last three.
