Tennessee gets 75-42 win over Austin Peay

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Kelley Cain had 18 points and 12 rebounds as top seed Tennessee beat No. 16 seeded Austin Peay 75-42 on Saturday in the opening round of the NCAA women's tournament.

The Lady Vols (31-2), playing in their NCAA-record 29th first-round game, have advanced out of the opening weekend every season except last, when they lost 71-55 to Ball State in the first round.

Cain hit a jumper 30 seconds into the game, and the Lady Vols scored the first 15 points before Austin Peay hit a basket.

The Lady Govs (15-18) got their first points when Ashley Herring hauled in a rebound off Brooke Faulkner's missed jumper and hit a jumper with 13:14 left in the first half.

Herring scored 21 points for Austin Peay, which worked its way into tournament as only the eighth team in history with a losing record by winning the Ohio Valley Conference tournament.
