KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee's Holly Warlick has been of the Lady Vols' staff for more than 27 years and the first-year head coach says she has never encountered an injury situation quite like the one her team currently faces.

Senior guard Kamiko Williams sprained her right ankle and Jasmine Jones hurt her right knee Sunday, leaving the Lady Vols with only seven healthy players by the end of their 80-63 loss at Missouri. Jones returned to practice Tuesday, but Williams remains unlikely to play Thursday at LSU (13-8, 4-4 SEC).

The 12th-ranked Lady Vols (17-5, 8-1) lost freshman guard Andraya Carter to season-ending shoulder surgery in December. Sophomore center Isabelle Harrison underwent surgery on her left knee Friday, leaving her status for the rest of the season uncertain.
