FREEPORT, Bahamas (AP) - Ariel Massengale scored 11 of her 16 points in the first half to help No. 3 Tennessee rout SMU 87-47 on Friday night to win the Junkanoo Jam.
It was the Lady Vols' first holiday tournament championship since they won the Paradise Jam in 2005. Tennessee which had been getting off to slow starts lately, led from the beginning in this game.
The Lady Vols (7-0) scored 21 of the first 26 points to take an early lead. SMU (7-1) rallied to 23-15 before Tennessee led 39-27 at the half.
Isabelle Harrison, who only played six minutes in the first half because of foul trouble, scored three quick baskets after break to help blow the game open.
Keena Mays scored 12 to lead the Mustangs.
