Bonner, No. 6 Auburn race past Lady Vols

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - DeWanna Bonner scored a career-high 35 points and unbeaten No. 6 Auburn raced to a late 24-point lead and earned an 82-68 victory over No. 10 Tennessee on Sunday.

Auburn (20-0, 5-0) set an attendance record and also ended Tennessee's stranglehold on a one-sided series. The showdown of Southeastern Conference powers drew an overflow crowd of 12,067, breaking the 20-year-old school mark by nearly 5,000 fans.

The Lady Vols had dominated the series, winning the past 16 meetings and routing the Tigers 85-52 last season. Auburn hadn't beaten Tennessee (15-4, 4-2) in 12 years or at home since 1991, losing 24 of the previous 25 meetings.

Auburn opened up 1,500 extra seats in the upper section of the arena for the game. The attendance topped the previous high of 7,150 against Tennessee in 1989.

The Tigers moved to their second-best start in school history. Top-ranked Connecticut (19-0) is the only other unbeaten team in Division I.
