No. 4 South Carolina ready for No. 10 Lady Vols

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The lone regular-season matchup between No. 4 South Carolina and No. 10 Tennessee won't have any impact on the Southeastern Conference championship.

South Carolina (26-2, 14-1 SEC) clinched its first SEC title on Thursday with a 67-56 victory over Georgia. That removed any league championship implications from Sunday's meeting with Tennessee (23-5, 12-3) at Thompson-Boling Arena.

But the Gamecocks and Lady Vols say there's still plenty at stake in the regular-season finale for both teams. South Carolina guard Khadijah Sessions says "we've got to make sure we send the message that we're the best team in the SEC."

South Carolina is aiming for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. Tennessee is seeking to clinch the No. 2 seed in the SEC tournament that starts Wednesday in Duluth, Ga.
