ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) — Shekinna Stricklen scored 17 points, and Glory Johnson grabbed a season-high 21 rebounds to lead Pat Summitt and Tennessee past DePaul 63-48 Monday in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

Vicki Baugh scored 16, and the Lady Volunteers (26-8) took another big step toward the Final Four, grabbing a double-digit lead early in the second half and hanging on in a physical game in which players seemed to hit the floor about as often as they hit shots. Now, they’re headed to the round of 16, where they’ll meet third-seeded Delaware or 11th-seeded Kansas on Saturday.

They stretched a five-point lead at intermission to 12 early in the second half and were up 42-29 after a hook shot by Baugh with 11:41 remaining. They remained in control from there and moved closer toward their ultimate goal.

That would be a ninth NCAA title and 19th Final Four.

Summitt, Tennessee move on, beat DePaul 63-48.
