Tennessee held off LSU 64-63 Sunday afternoon in Baton Rouge, though the frantic finish wasn't exactly how Lady Volunteers coach Kellie Harper drew it up.

There was no scoring in the game's final 28 seconds, when Jordan Walker missed two free throws, Kasiyahna Kushkituah missed two free throws and Rae Burrell missed a layup for the Lady Vols. Tennessee got offensive rebounds after the missed free throws, but LSU gained possession after Burrell failed to connect.

Tiara Young missed a layup for the Tigers as time expired.

The Lady Vols improved to 8-1 overall and 2-0 in Southeastern Conference play despite committing 19 turnovers, with Burrell leading the winners with 18 points on 6-of-11 shooting, including 2-of-3 from 3-point range. Tamari Key added 12 points on 6-of-9 shooting, while Jordan Horston chipped in 11.

Rennia Davis was held to eight points for Tennessee but racked up nine rebounds.

Khayla Pointer scored a game-high 25 points for LSU (4-6, 2-2).

The Lady Vols will resume play Thursday night, when they host Georgia. The Lady Bulldogs (10-1, 2-1) topped visiting Florida 68-58 on Sunday.
