NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Shekinna Stricklen scored 18 points in the second half to lead No. 13 Tennessee to a 68-57 win over Vanderbilt on Friday in the Southeastern Conference tournament quarterfinals.
Stricklen found herself on the bench with two fouls with about 12 minutes to go in the first half, in which she went scoreless. The second-seeded Lady Volunteers held a 45-44 lead when a 3-pointer by Stricklen launched a 9-2 run that gave them control of the game.
Tennessee (22-8) shot 50 percent and held seventh-seeded Vanderbilt to 34.5 percent shooting in the game, which included an extended halftime because of a threat of severe weather in the Nashville area.
The Lady Vols will face either No. 25 South Carolina or No. 16 Georgia on Saturday.
Christina Foggie led the Commodores (22-9) with 16 points, and Stephanie Holzer had 12 points and 11 rebounds.
