No. 6 Tennessee knocks out No. 15 Texas A&M

Duluth, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Isabelle Harrison scored 20 points with 13 rebounds and sixth-ranked Tennessee topped No. 15 Texas A&M 86-77 in the semifinals of the SEC tournament on Saturday.

Meighan Simmons had 15 points and Bashaara Graves added 14 for the second- seeded Lady Vols (26-5), who moved on to play 12th-ranked Kentucky in Sunday's final. Kentucky trumped No. 5 South Carolina 68-58 earlier Saturday.

Tennessee overcame a 10-point deficit to avenge a loss to Texas A&M in the semifinals of last year's tournament. The setback derailed the Lady Vols' bid for a fourth straight tourney title.

Texas A&M went on to capture the crown in its first season in the league.

Courtney Walker paced the third-seeded Aggies (24-8) with 26 points and Courtney Williams supplied 22.
