Tennessee makes it.

NCAA Womens Basketball: SEC Conference Tournament - Mississippi State vs Tennessee Joshua S. Kelly-USA TODAY Sports

After some serious doubt late in the regular season, the Tennessee Lady Vols have made the NCAA Tournament. For the 38th straight season, the Lady Vols will be in the dance. Tennessee earned a No. 11 seed and will take on No. 6 seed UCLA in the first round.

Tennessee will play on Saturday, March 23rd at 1:00 p.m. eastern.

With their backs against the wall, the Lady Vols came away with a win against LSU in the SEC Tournament. That game may have been a play-in game to the NCAA Tournament. Tennessee was eliminated a day later by Mississippi State.

Here’s a look at the Albany region. A win would likely mean a matchup with Maryland. Looking a little further, UConn sits as the No. 2 seed in Tennessee’s bracket with Louisville as the No. 1.
