AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Meighan Simmons scored 29 points and No. 9 Tennessee rallied from a 12-point deficit in the second half for a 75-66 victory over Auburn on Thursday night.

The Lady Vols (14-3, 5-0 Southeastern Conference) used a 40-15 run to take control of a game they'd trailed most of the way en route to their seventh consecutive win.

Simmons scored nine points on two 3-pointers and a three-point play during a 15-2 spurt that started the turnaround. Kamiko Williams' drive with 10:05 left gave Tennessee its first lead -- 49-47 -- since the game's opening basket.

Simmons, who had 27 points in a overtime win over Florida, made 10 of 14 shots -- including 4 of 6 from 3-point range.

Taber Spani had 12 points for the Lady Vols and Ariel Massengale added 11.

Hasina Muhammed and Blanche Alverson scored 15 points apiece to lead Auburn.
