Muscle Shoals’ Sara Puckett has been helping send Lady Vols to 1st Sweet 16 since 2016

Knoxville, Tenn. (AP) — Sara Puckett hit a 3-pointer with 17.5 seconds left to give Tennessee the lead as fourth-seeded Lady Vols held off neighbor Belmont 70-67 Monday night to advance to his first Sweet 16 since 2016.

The Lady Vols improved to 23-1 at home in the second round of the NCAA Women’s Tournament.

They achieved 35th place in the Sweet 16 program in 40 tournaments. They will face top-seeded Louisville on Saturday in the regional semifinals in Wichita, Kansas.

Tennessee had to give up that win after losing a 14-point lead in the third quarter. Belmont ended a 13-game winning streak.
