Knoxville, TN – Diamond DeShields was spectacular on Wednesday night with 31 points and seven steals to lead No. 8/8 Tennessee to an 85-49 victory over East Tennessee State at Thompson-Boling Arena.
Tennessee (6-1) thrived thanks to a big night from a trio of players that the Lady Vols did not have last season. DeShields was 12-of-20 from the floor and also tallied eight rebounds and five assists. She was not the only Lady Vol who had a career night. Te’a Cooper shined in the second half to finish with a career-high 23 points on 9-of-18 shooting. Mercedes Russell posted a double-double, her third on the season, with 13 points and 10 rebounds in the win.
