Lady Vols Sweep the SEC Player, Freshman, and Coach of the Year Awards - Rocky Top Talk

Shekinna Stricklen, Glory Johnson, Meighan Simmons, and Pat Summitt clean up the SEC awards for the Lady Vols. David Hooper has his breakdown of each at the link above, but I must add that this team is looking far more impressive over the last few weeks and after some doubts about how far they'd go in the tournament (from me, mostly) their potential once at full health is off the charts.

Much improved. Lauren Avant is loud. She came in off the bench to many cheers (mostly for her Vanderbilt efforts in the previous game), and amid the cheers her directions were audible from the upper deck. Her 14 minutes of play came in pieces and partly at the end with a Bass/Smallbone lineup, so determining her level of readiness was a little difficult. But she passes well, plays with a ton of confidence, and has no problem leading the offense. She will be a terrific point guard for a team that has sorely lacked one for years. Meanwhile, Meighan Simmons played with more control and a much better awareness of the floor.

From Lady Vols Earn Share of SEC Crown by Beating South Carolina 82-60 - Rocky Top Talk. You've probably figured this out by now - I think Meighan Simmons is among the most interesting freshmen to watch in the country. Having Lauren Avant play point next to her appears to be working and might help alleviate some of UT's ball handling troubles.

Lady Vols Beat Wildcats, 73-67, but how far can they go?

+

Tennessee Lady Vols point guard Meighan Simmons drives me nuts and I don't even have a strong rooting interest in the team. She has got to be among the most maddeningly fascinating freshman talents in the country because it's almost impossible to know whether you want someone to reign her in or just show her the ways of the Force because it's so strong within her. Her line tonight as described by David Hooper at SBN's Tennessee blog Rocky Top Talk. Meighan Simmons had a fire and ice night with 15 points (including several clutch points late), 4 rebounds, 4 assists, ... and 9 turnovers. She's a freshman; give her a break this time. Just as Hooper implores us to give Simmons a break, I often feel like those who want to consider Tennessee a national championship contender look at their talent but have to ignore a lot of blemishes (e.g. 24 turnovers tonight) in order to imagine that coming to fruition. Indeed Simmons has time and I'd argue she does less harm than good even now. But after the relatively few times I've watched this team (with & without Bjorklund), I'm left wondering how far they can really go this year and how close they really are to the likes of Baylor, UConn, and Stanford right now?
