KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Bashaara Graves matched a career high with 23 points and set a new career high with 18 rebounds to help No. 4 Tennessee remain undefeated with an 87-76 victory over Georgia Tech on Sunday.

Isabelle Harrison added 10 points and a career-high 18 rebounds for the Lady Vols (4-0). Mercedes Russell had 14 points and Meighan Simmons added 13.

Kaela Davis scored 28 points to lead Georgia Tech (2-1).

Davis, the daughter of former NBA forward Antonio Davis, was verbally committed to Tennessee before eventually signing with Georgia Tech. Davis' twin brother, A.J. Davis, plays forward for the Tennessee men's basketball team. He was in the stands Sunday wearing Tennessee gear and cheering for his sister.

Tennessee led by 18 points in the first half before Georgia Tech (2-1) used exceptional 3-point shooting to rally. Georgia Tech trailed 70-65 before Tennessee put the game away with a 12-0 run.
