After trailing by three points at the break, LSU held a 55-51 advantage midway through the second half and used a 13-2 run to take a 68-53 bulge with 2:27 remaining.

The Tigers went 6-of-6 from the free throw line, while the Volunteers missed 6-of-7 field goal attempts during the spurt.

Erica White added 16 points - 11 in the second half - and Quianna Chaney chipped in 14 for the Tigers, who have won 12 straight games and won their second straight contest at Tennessee.

Candace Parker had 26 points, 10 rebounds and a career-high six steals and Nicky Anosike added 10 points and 12 rebounds for the Volunteers (22-2, 8-1), who shot just 29 percent (10-of-35) in the second half and committed 19 turnovers for the game.
