Vols’ shooting star

 

Already leading Tennessee in scoring, Angie Bjorklund (University HS) still heeded coach Pat Summitt’s suggestion that the Lady Vols spend some extra time in the gym shooting this week. It certainly didn’t hurt. Bjorklund, who entered the game averaging 14.9 points, scored all but three of her 19 points in the first half as No. 4 Tennessee beat Old Dominion 102-62 in a non-conference basketball game Wednesday night. “If you said what player you think has worked the hardest to get where they are right now, it’s Angie Bjorklund,” Summitt said. “I asked Pat for the fire extinguisher at halftime,” Lady Monarchs coach Wendy Larry joked. “I think Angie Bjorklund has distinguished herself as one of the best there is. She certainly put on a clinic in the 20 minutes she played.”
