KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Meighan Simmons scored 18 points Thursday night and No. 9 Tennessee relied on suffocating defense to trounce Missouri 84-39 for its fifth straight victory.

Bashaara Graves added 16 points and eight rebounds for the Lady Vols (12-3, 3-0 SEC). Isabelle Harrison had 12 points and a career-high 15 rebounds, and Taber Spani scored 11 points.

Morgan Eye scored 18 points and shot 6 of 17 from 3-point range for Missouri (12-5, 1-2). Eye had gone 11 of 18 on 3s Sunday in an 82-77 victory over Auburn, falling one shy of the NCAA record.

Missouri set an SEC record with 18 3-pointers in the victory over Auburn, but the Tigers shot just 19.7 percent (13 of 66) on Thursday. They were 9 of 36 from 3-point range and 4 of 30 on 2-point attempts.
