BATON ROUGE, La. — A last-second stop by the Tennessee defense pushed the Lady Vols into the win column against LSU, beating the Tigers 64-63 on the road.

Rae Burrell led Tennessee with 18 points, while Tamari Key and Jordan Horston added double-digit days, scoring 12 and 11 respectively. 

It was a tight game throughout, with the largest lead for each team being just six points. Turnovers continue to be a problem with the Lady Vols, giving the ball up 19 times with LSU scoring 26 points off of those mistakes. The Lady Vols made up for it on the glass, outrebounding LSU 39-25.

Tennessee is currently scheduled to play two games next week, a home game on Thursday against Georgia, followed by a road trip to Tuscaloosa to face Alabama.
