KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Ariel Massengale scored 14 of her 18 points in the second half Saturday as No. 10 Tennessee breezed past No. 7 Stanford 59-40 for its fifth consecutive victory.
Tennessee (9-2) led from start to finish and was never seriously threatened as it ended a three-game losing streak in the series.  Stanford went scoreless for an eight-minute stretch and made just one basket in the last 10 minutes of the first half.
Stanford (6-4) has lost consecutive games for the first time since December 2010. The Cardinal lost 54-46 at Chattanooga on Wednesday.
Bashaara Graves had 10 points and 10 rebounds for Tennessee. Isabelle Harrison also scored 10 points.
Lili Thompson had 13 points for Stanford.
This was just the second time in the 32-game history of the series that Tennessee and Stanford faced each other with neither team ranked in the top five.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
