The Lady Vols host LSU in their third-to-last game of the regular season.  With a two-game lead on Kentucky for the SEC crown, a win tonight would all but lock the Lady Vols for the title yet again.

In their meeting earlier this season, Tennessee beat LSU in a defensive battle, 55-43.  With Kelley Cain returning to the lineup, we should expect UT's offense to run more smoothly tonight than they did against Alabama.  Nobody in the SEC has been able to stop Cain yet; I do not expect it to happen tonight.

Look for UT's advantage in size and strength to win the day from the inside out.  In particular, look for Pat Summitt to continue lodging her boot as deeply as it needs to go to get the gals to win again.
