KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — The Lady Vols are currently on a six-game winning streak and haven’t lost in over a month, and late game success has been one of the keys to victory for this team.

The Lady Vols have outscored opponents by 47 points in the fourth quarter this season.

They’ve played three games in which the margin of victory was less than 10 points, and have won two of those games. That includes Sunday’s one-point victory over LSU on the road.

But head coach Kellie Harper says she wants more down the stretch in tight games.

“We missed four free throws and a layup inside of a minute. Fortunately, we had a defensive stop to end the game. I don’t know that we necessarily closed that one well, but we found a way to win.”

Harper and the Lady Vols get back at it Thursday night against Georgia. Tip off is set for 6:30 p.m.
