Vols defeat Cats in Women's SEC tourney

 NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Cierra Burdick had 20 points and 11 rebounds as No. 5 Tennessee pulled away to reach the women's Southeastern Conference Tournament championship game with a 75-64 win over Kentucky on Saturday night.
    
It's the 23rd time in 35 seasons the defending tournament champion Lady Vols (27-4) have reached the final, where they'll face No. 3 South Carolina on Sunday. They have won the tournament 17 times.
    
Burdick was 8 of 14 from the field as Tennessee won for the fifth time in six games since All-SEC center Isabelle Harrison was lost for the season with a knee injury.
    
Jordan Reynolds added 13 points and hit three 3-pointers for the Lady Vols, who were 9 of 19 overall from behind the arc.
    
Bria Goss led the No. 12 Wildcats (23-9), who lost in the championship game last year, with 16 points.
