Tennessee, which was plus-eight in turnovers at the half, went into intermission with a 36-28 lead. Hillsman remained ideal from the floor, however, going 5-for-5 with 10 points and seven boards for A&M.

The Vols' victory Saturday was more decisive.

Nared found her stroke from behind the arc in the third quarter, knocking down three 3-pointers for nine points in the period.

Texas A&M's Danni Williams led her team to a win with a team-high 22 points.

A&M's momentum continued in the early stages of the fourth quarter, as it surged to a seven-point advantage with 6:41 remaining.

Freshman guard Evina Westbrook made two mistakes in the five-minute overtime that cost the Lady Vols. Tennessee again had a chance to win the game, but turned it over.

Balanced Attack: Tennessee had four players score in double figures against TAMU, keeping their streak of having at least three players in double digits ideal thus far this season. The London, England native rewarded UT with a 12-point, five-rebound performance of her own. This was the second year in a row that the game between these two teams in College Station was decided in overtime.

The Lady Vols will look to bounce back Sunday when they travel to play conference rival SC.
