What a day on the court!
The biggest win of the day – and the week – was #11 Tennessee’s takedown of previously-undefeated #2 Texas, 82-75.
No team in the Holly Warlick era has upset a higher-ranked opponent. Seniors Jamie Nared and Mercedes Russell lead the way, but freshman Evina Westbrook had a career-high 15 points, and the entire team played cohesively and aggressively. It was the kind of basketball Lady Vol fans have been waiting to see again for years. This team is for real this season.
Think about all that’s happened the last seven days, and how different the AP top 25 poll will look tomorrow.
Virginia Tech routed Chattanooga, 64-44.
Most teams are wrapping up finals this week, so the game schedule will be light. Tomorrow’s schedule features only 15 games.
