KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Ariel Massengale scored a season-high 19 points and No. 6 Tennessee cruised to a 90-47 win against Chattanooga on Tuesday night.
Massengale made all six of her shots, four from 3-point range. Glory Johnson had 10 points and 13 rebounds.
Massengale hit a 3 with 16:11 left in the first half and started a 30-0 run. The Lady Mocs went without a basket for 12 minutes and never recovered.
Tennessee (10-3) led 50-16 at halftime and pushed the margin to 46 points late.
Kamiko Williams came in for Tennessee during the run, marking her first appearance of the season. The junior guard had surgery on July 22 to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee.
Faith Dupree, who signed with Tennessee but transferred after sitting out her freshman season because of back problems, led Chattanooga (8-4) with 17 points.
