DAYTON, Ohio -- The line on the official play by play reads simply "BLOCK by Simmons, Meighan 16:42." The effect of that one line on the stat sheet on Tennessee's 85-75 win and the rest of the Lady Vols' season could be immeasurable. Obviously, no one in the Tennessee locker room at the University of Dayton Arena was happy as the team ran in for halftime on Saturday afternoon. Though Shekinna Stricklen had just come around two defenders to nail a two-pointer as the first half buzzer sounded to pull the Lady Vols within two at 42-40, the first-half effort was clearly not what Pat Summitt or her squad had in mind.
