KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Meighan Simmons scored 24 points and 4 of her teammates also reached double figures Sunday as No. 12 Tennessee rolled to a 97-68 victory over Mississippi.

The Lady Vols shot 59.4% (38 of 64) and beat the Rebels for the 24th consecutive time. Ole Miss (8-15, 1-9 Southeastern Conference) hasn't beaten Tennessee since a 78-72 victory on Feb. 4, 1996.

Bashaara Graves had 19 points and 11 rebounds for Tennessee (19-5, 10-1). Taber Spani and Nia Moore each added 12 points, while Kamiko Williams had 11 points. Spani hadn't scored and Moore hadn't played at all in Tennessee's last game, a 64-62 victory at LSU on Thursday. Moore's 12 points represented a career high for the freshman center.

Diara Moore scored 16 points, Gracie Frizzell had 12 points and Danielle McCray added 11 points for Mississippi, which lost for the ninth time in its last 10 games.
