Friday is for Quick Hits
GAME DAY The (7)Lady Vols face the (3)Buckeyes tonight at 9:30EST on ESPN2 in what should be a proper contrast of styles: on the season, Tennessee is averaging 65.2 and allowing only 58.1, while high-flying Ohio State is netting 86.8 while allowing 74.5. Key to stopping them is shutting down the spectacular Kelsey Mitchell, who is averaging a 24.9 PPG- best in the nation (UConn is the only team to hold her to single digits). tOSU is favored by 4.5, but the Lady Vols may be helped by the absence of Buckeye starting guard Cait Craft, who broke her wrist in practice on Tuesday.
