Zolman, Parker lead Tennessee past Michigan St.

CHARLOTTE AMALIE, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) -- Shanna Zolman
scored 19 points and Candace Parker added 14 to lead
Tennessee to a 93-55 victory over ninth-ranked Michigan State in
the Paradise Jam tournament Thursday night.

Parker also had nine rebounds, four assists and four blocks for
the Lady Vols (3-0), who will play Gonzaga on Friday.

Lindsay Bowen scored 19 points to lead Michigan State (2-1).

The Lady Vols (No. 1 ESPN/USA Today, No. 2 AP) led the entire game, but the Spartans kept it
relatively close in the first half, trailing only 37-27 at the
break. Tennessee shot 57 percent from the field in the second half
to pull away.

"We calmed down a little bit in the second half and started
taking better shots," coach Pat Summit said.

The Spartans committed 20 turnovers and shot 33 percent.

"You move on. You take the lessons from this game and you go
after Maryland," said coach Joanne P. McCallie, whose team plays
No. 10 Maryland on Friday.
