No. 4 Tennessee women beat No. 12 UNC 81-65

Chapel Hill, NC - Ariel Massengale scored a career-high 20 points to help No. 4 Tennessee beat No. 12 North Carolina 81-65 on Monday night, a strong performance in which the Lady Vols led by double figures most of the game.
    
Isabelle Harrison added 14 points for the Lady Vols (2-0), who led by 12 at halftime then scored the first seven points of the second half to blow the game open. Tennessee shot 40 percent but knocked down eight 3-pointers, while its defense harassed the Tar Heels (1-1) all night.
    
Freshman Allisha Gray scored 15 points to lead UNC, which shot 30 percent (21 for 69). Freshman Diamond DeShields, the top recruit in a heralded rookie class, finished with eight points on 3-for-15 shooting before fouling out with 2:10 left.
    
The Tar Heels were again without coach Sylvia Hatchell, as the recently inducted Naismith Hall of Famer focuses on treatment for leukemia.
