KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Glory Johnson had 21 points and 10 rebounds as No. 10 Tennessee beat Florida 75-59 on Sunday to grab second place in the Southeastern Conference.
This was the final home game for the Lady Vols, who have lost the most games ever on the court named after coach Pat Summitt. The Hall of Famer revealed in August that she had been diagnosed with early onset dementia, Alzheimer's type.
She has only said she hopes to continue coaching as long as possible. She has spoken very little about her condition this season, instead urging others to focus on basketball instead of her.
The Lady Vols (21-8, 12-4) have struggled this season at times, losing at home to South Carolina and Arkansas for the first time ever. They will play in the SEC tournament this weekend in Nashville before playing in the NCAA tournament.
