KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee's last road trip didn't go so well. The seventh-ranked Lady Volunteers are hoping for a better showing on their upcoming journey, even though this road trip will be much, much tougher than the last.

The Lady Vols will face No. 20 DePaul on Sunday in the Maggie Dixon Classic in New York. They'll meet No. 11 Rutgers in Piscataway, N.J., on Tuesday before a quick trip home and a long flight to California for games at UCLA and No. 4 Stanford.

Associate head coach Holly Warlick likes how her team has played at home but wants the players to understand the importance of playing hard on the road.

That didn't quite sink in during the only other road game this season, a disappointing 69-64 overtime loss to unranked Virginia.
