The Lady Volunteers have jumped out the gate to produce a 12-0 OOC record to include money wins over Marquette, Oklahoma State, Central Arkansas and Stanford to go along with a huge resume building win over Texas. They'll have a shot at Notre Dame but we'll get to that later.
Holly Warlick's prized freshman class has blended well with the veteran squad.
Jaime Nared, recognized as the USBWA Player of the week December 12th, averaged 25 points a game to go with 9.5 rebounds, in a week where she lead the Lady Vols to victories over Troy, 131-69, followed by a victory over Texas, 82-75.
...Okay. I'll admit it. This was a draft from a couple of weeks ago. This is a lot bigger game than what it appears on its face. Scanning down over the last four meetings, toward the bottom of UTsports.com's official preview, the Lady Vols are headed into a rivalry game on the road.
It's been awhile since the Ladies have jumped out to a 15-0 start. They'll need to bring their A game tonight to escape College Station with a W.
The game starts at 7:00 ET tonight. It will be aired on the SEC network. Of course if wisdom prevails you'll be listening to Mickey Dearborn on "The Animal".
Hopefully we'll get a little traffic tonight. I really miss 'snail, Will and so many others participating in game threads during the Lady Volunteer contests. Please, use this as your unofficial game thread.
