KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee knows it's not on the level of the nation's top teams yet. The Lady Vols say they can get there and quickly get another chance to show how long it might take.

Four days after losing 76-53 at No. 3 Baylor, the 10th-ranked Lady Vols (7-2) return home Saturday to face No. 1 Stanford (10-0).  The game is at 4:00 pm.

Tennessee seeks its first home victory over a top-ranked team since beating Louisiana Tech 77-72 on Jan. 22, 1996.

The Lady Vols must avoid the slow start that doomed them Tuesday. Baylor raced to a 17-0 advantage and led 41-16 at the intermission, Tennessee's largest halftime deficit ever.

Tennessee coach Holly Warlick is optimistic center Isabelle Harrison will play Saturday after missing the Baylor game with a sprained ankle.
