This is it!  The game where Pat Summitt becomes the first 1-A coach with 1,000 career wins!  (We really, really, hope...)

Point of observation:  in the last 3 games, Georgia has played 8 different players total.  Meanwhile, Tennessee has lost both Cait McMahan and Vicki Baugh to injuries.  Will either team run out of gas by the end of the game?  Both?  Yet Georgia has wins over both Auburn and Vanderbilt, while Tennessee does not.  Can the Lady Vols pull this one off and defend their home court?

Go Ladies!  Make history!
