Tennessee again plays a third game in a season against an opponent when they face Vanderbilt tonight.  The previous two meetings were close, but won by Tennessee thanks to an interior presence that Vanderbilt's players couldn't match.  As usual, Tennessee will try to dominate from the inside out, while Vanderbilt will try to outrun Tennessee's defense using a lot of screens.  Vanderbilt is built very similarly to Ole MIss, so a repeat performance of Friday's game is exactly what Summitt will be looking for.

Fatigue might be an issue for Vanderbilt, who has played two very close games already (65-64 in OT vs. Arkansas and 63-61 vs. LSU).  Both Rhoads and Marsh played a full 45 minutes against Arkansas, and they logged 38 and 40 minutes respectively against LSU for the regulation win.  They will likely be asked to play 40 minutes for a third straight night; the simple question is whether they have that energy left in them - especially against a Tennessee squad that was able to rotate their bench in throughout the second half of the rout vs. Ole Miss.

GO LADY VOLS!
