           === Lady Vols stymie Mississippi State in lopsided win ===
 
 Knoxville,  TN  (Sports Network) - Meighan  Simmons scored 21 points and No. 9
 Tennessee clamped down defensively on Mississippi State in an 88-45 victory at
 Thompson-Boling Arena on Thursday.
 
 Taber  Spani chipped in 15 points, while Kamiko Williams filled the stat sheet
 with  10  points, 13  rebounds, six steals  and six assists  for the Lady Vols
 (17-4,  8-0 SEC), who  rebounded from a home loss to Notre Dame by holding the
 Bulldogs to 32 percent shooting.
 
 Mississippi State (9-12, 1-7) snapped a six-game losing streak with a win over
 Ole Miss on Sunday, but watched the Lady Vols score the first 10 points of the
 game and 15 of the last 17 of the half to fall behind, 42-18, at the break.
 
 The  Bulldogs  never seriously threatened in  the second half and fell to 0-34
 all-time against the conference front-runners.
 
 Martha Alwal scored a team-high 16 points in defeat.
