FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Glory Johnson recorded her fifth straight double-double with 15 points and 14 rebounds, as No. 6 Tennessee started quickly and didn't let up in a 69-38 victory over Arkansas on Sunday.

The win was the 36th straight in Southeastern Conference play for the Lady Volunteers (12-3, 3-0), who opened the game with a 25-3 run.

Arkansas native Shekinna Stricklen added 19 points for Tennessee, which hasn't lost an SEC game since a 53-50 loss at Georgia on Jan. 21, 2010.

Lyndsay Harris scored 14 points to lead the Razorbacks (11-4, 0-3), who hit only 3 of 30 shots in the first half and finished with a season-low point total. The first half and overall game shooting percentages were the worst in school history.
