Tennessee weathers Gonzaga hot shooting, gets win

CHARLOTTE AMALIE, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) -- Nicky Anoskie
scored 15 points to lead Tennessee to its fourth straight victory,
79-65 over Gonzaga in the Paradise Jam tournament on Friday night.

Tye'sha Fluker added 13 points and Candace Parker 12 for the
Lady Vols, who face No. 10 Maryland on Saturday. The Terps defeated
No. 9 Michigan State 75-61.

Anne Bailey scored 22 points and Katy Ridenour had 17 points for
Gonzaga, which faces Michigan State on Saturday.

Gonzaga shot 58.8 percent in a first half that included four
ties and six lead changes. Tennessee led by seven points at the
break.

Tennessee coach Pat Summit was not happy with the first-half
effort by her team.

"I told them, 'You just don't understand. It's Tennessee,"
Summit said. "So, we had a little history lesson at halftime. "I
said, 'You have to understand, everyone is going to bring their A
game against you."

Tennessee started the second half with more energy and extended
its lead to 21 points in the first five minutes of the second half.

Gonzaga coach Kelly Graves was pleased with his team's effort.

"I've never been one for moral victories, but I'm really proud
of our team," Graves said. "We didn't give in and give up."
