Consider this a warm-up for the Saturday game, if you will:  UT at UK in a must-win conference game for the team in orange.

In any other year, this would be a game that you could bank on the Lady Vols winning and not even blink an eye.  They're still the more talented team (by far) and still the heavy favorites, but they have shown a tendency to get lazy when they don't feel the pressure to perform.  They know they can win in the last few minutes (they've done it enough), but they need to learn to make the last few minutes irrelevant.  Can they come out with the killer instinct and take over this game as their talent level suggests they should? 

GO LADY VOLS!
