KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Now that Tennessee has shown it can beat just about anyone at home, the Lady Volunteers get a chance to see what they can do on the road.

The seventh-ranked Lady Vols (10-0) are back in the top 10 for the first time in two seasons after an 82-75 home victory Sunday over No. 8 Texas , which was ranked second at the time. Tennessee will put that ranking to the test the rest of this month during a 3 +-week stretch without a home game.

Tennessee plays its first three true road games of the season Sunday at Long Beach State, Dec. 21 at No. 18 Stanford and Dec. 31 at Kentucky. The Lady Vols' next home game is Jan. 4 against Auburn.
