Slow First Half

By Jeff Lippman - April 06, 2008

TAMPA, Fla. - After the drama that unfolded in Sunday's first national semifinal game between Stanford and Connecticut, the first half of the LSU-Tennessee game was largely anti-climatic.

The score is 22-18 in favor of the Lady Vols, but outside of eight points and nine boards from Candace Parker and 12 points and eight boards from Sylvia Fowles, not much else happened.

Quianna Chaney had four points and freshman Allison Hightower added a deuce for LSU. For Tennessee, Alberta Auguste helped out the Vols cause by scoring six.

The first half was just what you'd expect from these two teams. Slow and played with a lot of defense. The Lady Vols only mustered 28.6 percent from the field while the Tigers shot 31 percent. But Tennessee's Shannon Bobbitt hit a three and the Vols made two more baskets and took nine more shots than LSU to equal the difference.

Each team has two blocks and two steals. Tennessee has turned it over five times, while LSU six.
