Lady Vol BBall = SEC Champs

The Lady Vols basketball squad clinched the regular season SEC title last night with a road win over the Lady Tigers of LSU, 56-51.  

A few things I noticed in watching the game:

  • Candace Parker continues to be an animal. After putting up a double-double at the half (20 pts, 10 reb), her productivity significantly took a hit in the 2nd half only scoring 7 more pts and pulling down 3 more rebs.  I think the lack in productivity was due to fatigue, as she was consistently double-teamed when in the paint.
  • Defensive games are always tough for me to watch, but for some reason I really enjoyed this one.  Nearly every posession (for both teams) used the entire duration of the shot clock.
  • During the last 10 mins. of the game, the Lady Vols looked like they were playing on a molases court;  extremely sluggish in the transition game (both offensively and defensively).
  • While dominant on the offensive glass (20 OREB), we struggled to convert them into points (13).
  • Sid Spencer's name last night was "Dane Bradshaw"...1-12 for 2 pts, 9 rebs, 2 ast, 1 stl.  Bad offensive production, but a tremendous leader and a monster in other facets of the game when points weren't being produced.
  • There's a pretty funny picture in the provided link at the top of the outstretched 6'6" Sylvia Fowles (LSU) contesting a shot from 5'2" Shannon Bobbitt (UT).
The Lady Vols conclude their regular season Sunday at home, vs. Vanderbilt.

Congrats to Coach Summitt and the Lady Vols on winning the school's 14th regular season SEC title.  Step 1 in the "trifecta" is complete.  Now let's gear up for an SEC tourney win, followed by a run to the NCAA Champeenship!
