Going back to Tennessee’s first national championship in 1987, there was Dawn Marsh. In 1989, you had freshman Dena Head who in turn led the Lady Vols to another championship in 1991. What about the 1996 National Championship team that was led by Super Freshman, Chamique Holdsclaw? Most would surmise that she was named the Most Outstanding Player, but it was actually starting point guard Michelle Marciniak who was given that honor.
[An excellent outsider's perspective about freshman Ariel Massengale. A great read for any Lady Vols fan. --Hooper]
