HARTFORD, Conn. -- UConn's Ann Strother missed two of three free throws with 3.9 seconds left, and Tennessee escaped with a victory over the Huskies. The Lady Vols' win, before a crowd of 16,294 at the Hartford Civic Center, ended a four-year drought against UConn. Freshman guard Sa'de Wiley-Gatewood converted a 3-point play with 15 seconds left for a 68-66 lead, and the Lady Vols (10-3) held on to end a six-game losing streak against their top rival. A 60-percent free throw shooter, Strother made only the first after being fouled by Alexis Hornbuckle during a 3-point attempt. Hornbuckle scored 14 points for Tennessee, which rallied from a 12-point deficit. Freshman Charde Houston led UConn (8-4) with 19 points.

Scholanda Hoston scored 17 points and Temeka Johnson had 12 points and 11 assists for the Tigers (14-1, 1-0 SEC), who were coming off their first loss of the season.
