Knoxville, TN – No. 23/24 Tennessee Lady Vols Basketball team (8-1) will face its toughest test of the season on Wednesday, as the Lady Vols go into Maples Pavilion in search of a victory over No. 1/1 Stanford (9-0). Tip-off is scheduled for 7:06pm PT (9:06pm CT).
This will mark the 37th time these programs have met on the hardwood, with UT owning a 25-11 record in the series.
The contest at Stanford marks only the third road game of the season and the first since November 11th for Tennessee. The Big Orange opened 2019-20 with a win at East Tennessee State on November 5th and then beat the Fighting Irish in Notre Dame on November 11th.
Notre Dame, IN – Rennia Davis tied her career high of 33 points to lead Tennessee Lady Vols basketball team (3-0) to victory over No. 16/14 Notre Dame on the road on Monday night, 74-63. It was the Lady Vols’ first victory on the road in the series since 2008.

Thursday, January 24th, 2019 | 6:02pm CT
Knoxville, TN – UT’s second “We Back Pat” branded game of the week occurs on Thursday night, January 24th as the Tennessee Lady Vols (12-6, 1-5 SEC) steps outside of SEC play to welcome No. 1/1 Notre Dame (18-1, 6-0 ACC) to Thompson-Boling Arena for a nationally-televised contest. Tip-off is slated for 6:02pm CT, with the game being carried by ESPN, the Lady Vol Radio Network and SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
Thursday’s match-up represents the second contest in a grueling three-game week for the Lady Vols. LSU, which is idle Thursday night, comes to Knoxville on Sunday for the annual “Live Pink, Bleed Orange” breast cancer awareness game at 1:00pm. Interestingly enough, Arkansas also had seven days to prepare for the Lady Vols, meaning both SEC foes this week had extra prep days prior to playing UT.
Notre Dame, IN – Meme Jackson scored 18 points, but it was not enough as No. 5/5 Notre Dame overcame a 23-point deficit to hand No. 6/7 Tennessee its second loss of the season, 84-70, on Thursday night at Purcell Pavilion.
After taking a 60-50 lead into the fourth quarter, the Lady Vols (16-2, 4-1 SEC) fell into an offensive slump, and were outscored 34-10 to close the game. The Fighting Irish (17-2, 5-1 ACC) were efficient throughout the second half, shooting 66 percent from 3-point range and committing just three turnovers.

This marks the 28th meeting between these schools in women’s basketball, with UT holding a 21-6 advantage. The Lady Vols will try to halt a three-game road losing skid in the series and end a 17-game homecourt winning streak by the Irish. A year ago, Tennessee ended a six-game Notre Dame series win streak, defeating the (then) No. 6/6 Fighting Irish, 71-69, at Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville on a last second jumper by Jaime Nared.

UT will be looking to snap a five-game venue losing streak at Maples, last winning on Stanford’s home court on December 4th, 2005. The Lady Vols will be aiming to go 12-0 for only the fifth occasion in school history and for the first time during the Holly Warlick era.
