The No. 6-seeded University of Tennessee Lady Vol volleyball team lost its opening round matchup to third-seeded Arkansas at the SEC Tournament by a 3-0 (30-23, 30-28, 30-25) count Friday night at Barnhill Arena in Fayetteville, Ark.
With the loss, Tennessee concluded the 2002 season with a 20-11 record.
"I thought we played hard, but we didn't control the ball," UT coach Rob Patrick said. "We carried out our game plan, but our erratic passing put too much pressure on our outside hitters. Despite that, I was still proud of how we competed."
During the third game, Scott tallied her 200th career service ace to become the only Lady Vol in UT history with 1,000 kills and digs and 200 aces.
Arkansas moved on to the championship match against Florida on Sunday. Results were unavailable at press time.
