STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) Tennessee hasn't had a particularly good regular season - especially by its lofty standards.

But at least for one afternoon, the Lady Volunteers looked very much like one of the nation's elite teams in an 82-64 victory over No. 3 Mississippi State on Sunday. It was the program's first road win over a top-three team since 2004.

Now Tennessee (19-10, 10-6 Southeastern Conference) has won three straight games heading into the conference tournament which begins on Wednesday in Greenville, South Carolina.
