AUBURN, Ala. — Jordan Horston knocked down a floater with 0.6 seconds left to lift the Lady Vols to a 56-55 win over the Auburn Tigers on Sunday. 

Rennia Davis finished with a double-double of 22 points and 10 rebounds. Senior Lou Brown finished with nine points. 

Tennessee led by as much as 13 points in the second half, but allowed the Tigers to tie the game at 54-54 with under four seconds left in the fourth quarter. 

After Horston's game-winning shot, Davis fouled Auburn's Daisa Alexander. This sent Alexander to the free throw line with a chance to tie the game. She made the first, but missed the second. 

The win gave the Lady Vols a three-game winning streak to end the regular season. They will be the 6th seed in the SEC women's tournament next week. 

They will play Missouri or Ole Miss on Thursday at 8:30 p.m. in Greenville, South Carolina.
