Welcome to Alltel Arena in North Little Rock, Ark., for the SEC Tournament semifinal game between your Auburn Tigers and the Tennessee Lady Vols.
Auburn 78, Tennessee 58.
- THIRD TO @ 7:19, 2nd half
Auburn leads, 60-45. Auburn is in complete control now. I've never seen anything like it. We're up to 12 offensive fouls now. I can't believe the calls. Over and over and over. It's making a mess of a really intriguing basketball game.
- SECOND TO @ 10:26, 2nd half
Auburn leads, 51-41. The Tigers look like a different team. They're rebounding with more fervor and it seems that Tennessee is slowing down a bit. The Lady Vols are not keeping pace in transition.
- FIRST TO @ 15:32, 2nd half
Auburn leads, 39-33. The Tigers have outscored Tennessee 13-2 so far this half. That's more than half what Auburn accomplished during the first 20 minutes of the game. If Smalley and Hobbs get on track -- each player has hit a bucket this half -- Auburn will be tough to stop.

- THIRD TO @ 3:13, 1st
Tennessee leads, 27-22. Both teams are playing excellent defense. Tennessee has benefited from some good luck here lately. A blocked shot landed in Alex Fuller's hand for a freebie just a moment ago. Auburn hasn't accomplished anything meaningful on offense in several minutes. The Lady Vols are highly aggressive with their man defense right now.
- SECOND TO @ 9:57, 1st
Auburn leads, 16-15. Auburn is out in transition now. Nell Fortner subbed out Boddie for ReRe Hobbs, which was a curious call. Maybe that's a defensive change? This is a fun game to watch. These teams are really going at it.
- FIRST TO @ 15:54, 1st
Tennessee leads, 8-7. The Lady Vols' outstanding freshman center, Kelley Cain, is out with a knee injury. Auburn hasn't yet had many opportunities to get out in transition. When those opportunities arise, you know the Tigers will be sprinting. This is UT's third game in three days.
