ABOUT THE COVER 2010-11 TENNESSEE LADY VOL BASKETBALL -“Victory Lane” Ladies, start your engines! The drive to “Victory Lane” for the 2010-11 University of Tennessee Lady Volunteer basketball team has begun. Over the years, Tennessee has seen the NCAA flagman wave the Orange & White checkered flag signifying a national championship…eight times in all. Sometimes the Lady Vols rolled in big…other times taking nail-biting victory right at the end. Since winning its last championship in 2008, an extremely young team has grown yearly after suffering through a disastrous 22-11 campaign in 2008-09, to a much-improved 32-3 record with nary a senior last season. Collectively, this 13 player squad once again persevered and flourished during the grueling fine-tuning of the off-season and is eager to see how its new aerodynamics check out when they get back on track…well, the basketball court.

CREDITS The 2010-11 University of Tennessee Lady Volunteer Basketball Media Guide was written and edited by Zach Stipe and Debby Jennings, with editorial assistance from Eric Trainer, Brian Davis, Cameron Harris, Todd Mounce, Donnie Conley, Amanda Pruitt, Craig Harris and Kaleb Center.

MEDIA RELATIONS COVERING PRACTICE Practice is open to the media and the public. Please contact Debby Jennings or Zach Stipe at the Media Relations Office at least three days in advance to arrange player or coach feature interviews. If you plan to cover practice, please contact the Media Relations Office on a daily basis to check about changes in the schedule. PLAYER AND COACH INTERVIEWS Media wishing to interview the coaches or players are encouraged to set up interviews in advance with the Media Relations Office. Generally, the best time to conduct an interview is following practice. Coach Summitt and the players are also available for phone interviews. The Media Relations office will help with all requests. PAT SUMMITT WEEKLY TELECONFERENCE Coach Pat Summitt will participate in a weekly teleconference this season. Please check with the UT Media Relations Office for details. The weekly teleconference will be held on Wednesdays. From time-to-time, selected players will also be available on the teleconference. SEC COACHES TELECONFERENCE The SEC Women’s Basketball Tournament teleconference will take place Monday, Feb. 28. All 12 coaches will appear in alphabetical order by school for five minutes each. The postseason teleconference is set for Wednesday, March 16. It will feature coaches from all SEC teams participating in the NCAA and WNIT tournaments. Media wishing to participate in any of the teleconferences should contact the SEC Media Relations Office for details. MEDIA CREDENTIALS Requests for working media credentials should be directed to Debby Jennings or Eric Trainer, in writing on letterhead, at least one week in advance. Credentials not picked up at the Media Relations Office will be left at the Thompson-Boling Arena Media Gate located on the east ground level entrance to the arena facing the G-10 parking garage on Phillip Fulmer Way. No credentials will be mailed. PHOTOGRAPHER CREDENTIALS Credentials will be issued only to accredited photographers or those individuals on special assignment. During regular season games, work area includes the floor area at both ends of the court and alongside the corners of the playing floor opposite the team benches. Special arrangements for strobes or catwalk access must be made through the Media Relations and Arena Management Offices no later than one week in advance of the game. UT’s arena security policy requires that all photographers placing strobes will go through a screening process and must be accompanied by a UT police officer or representative when placing strobes. THE SEC MEDIA POLICY By acceptance and use of an SEC media credential, the holder agrees to the following conditions for any and all athletic events hosted by the SEC and its member institutions: 1. The SEC and its member institutions grant a media organization a limited license to use certain gathered information on the media organization’s own Internet or online site beginning at the start of an athletic event and up to the conclusion of such event, all subject to the following limitations and conditions: (a) No more than 10 still photographs may be used for news coverage of the game and other editorial purposes during the event. (b) Video tape may only be shown as part of a single, non-archived, online “simulcast” of a television station’s regularlyscheduled news program.

4

(c) While a game is in progress, the use of textual statistical information is time-delayed and limited in amount (e.g., updates pertaining to score, injuries and national, conference or institutional record-breaking performances, a condensed half-time story) so that an organization’s Internet or online game coverage does not undercut the authorized and rights-paying fee organization’s rights to play-by-play accounts of the game and/or exclusivity as to such rights. 2. Any proposed media use on an Internet or online sight of the game information that is more detailed and/or more than described above will require separate written authorization by the SEC and/or its member institutions. However, such written authorization will not permit the use of game information in entertainment contexts and will not authorize game coverage that, due to immediacy or detail, constitutes or approaches a play-by-play account of a game. 3. Should any of these conditions be breached, the SEC and/or its member institutions will issue a written warning for the first violation. If this violation occurs during the last game of the institutions’ regularly-scheduled season, the media organization may not be credentialed for the SEC Tournament. A second violation of this policy will result in revocation of credentials to cover future basketball games hosted by the SEC and/or its member institutions. MEDIA PARKING PASSES AND MEDIA ENTRANCE Parking space is limited. The media must request parking access along with other credential requests. Media coverage on a regular basis will insure first priority in UT parking garage G-10. The media entrance is located adjacent to this parking area on Phillip Fulmer Way. PRESS ROW Press row is located on the east side of the arena behind the baseline nearest the visiting team bench. Only accredited media will be allowed in this area. Children are not permitted on press row. PRESS ROOM SERVICES The pressroom and interview rooms are on the east end of the arena. Soft drinks, a pre-game meal, and a halftime snack will be offered in the basketball media area. Post-game interviews also will be conducted in this area. Adjacent to the area, the working pressroom has numerous telephones and electrical outlets available. Wireless Internet is available both courtside and in the media workroom. Fax machine service also will be available. If you chose to install a phone line on press row, please contact Cindy Rich (865) 974-3121 at UT Telephone Services.

LADY VOLS ON THE AIR LADY VOL TELEVISED GAMES IN 2010-11

LADY VOL RADIO NETWORK

No other women’s basketball program in the nation enjoys the national scope of television coverage like the Lady Vols. Tennessee can trace its television coverage roots back to NBC’s SportsWorld in 1978 when the Lady Vols enjoyed their first top ranking in program history. Beginning in the 1978 season, the first of many local network television stations began airing select Lady Vol games each year. In 1979, TRZ Sports televised UT’s first nationally aired game from Knoxville. Additionally, UT was one of the first schools to welcome ESPN to its campus for coverage of women’s hoops. A network first for women’s basketball occurred at the 1981 AIAW National Championships when Coach Pat Summitt allowed herself to be miked for the title game and cameras were rolling in the locker room at halftime as a national audience was treated to an up-close view of Lady Vol basketball. Since the 1980s, over 500 games have been televised via CBS, NBC, ESPN, ESPN2, FSN, Sport South, Prime, Sports Channel, Home Team Sports, Home Sport Entertainment, and Comcast/Charter Sports Net. Countless other games have been aired via local cable outlets. No other women’s team in the nation has enjoyed the number of exposures on CBS Sports. To date, the Lady Vols have appeared 23 times on CBS and sport a 15-8 overall record. Tennessee has enjoyed phenomenal television growth over the last six seasons as 80% of its games have been televised (171 television appearances out of a total of 214 games). Last season, the Lady Vols Bob Kesling, the Director were on television 33 times and sported a of Athletic Department 30-3 record on the tube. Broadcasting, provides The Lady Vols have 24 regular season play-by-play on Lady Vol television games television opportunities for the 2010-11 season. UT will once again appear on ESPN, and hosts the ESPN2, ESPNU, CSS and SportSouth to “Pat Summitt Show”. name a few.

The Tennessee Lady Vols first found a home on the radio during the 1977-78 season. At that time, a handful of games were aired with John Ward, former play-by-play guru of UT football and men’s basketball, handling the microphone. The flagship station of the University of Tennessee Lady Vol basketball broadcasts is The Sports Animal, WNML (990 AM, 99.1 and 99.3 FM) in Knoxville, Tenn. This will mark the 33rd year of Lady Vol games on the air.

2010-11 SEASON PREVIEW

DRIVE TO VICTORY LANE Ladies, start your engines! The drive to “Victory Lane” for the 2010-11 University of Tennessee Lady Volunteer basketball team has begun. Over the years, Tennessee has seen the NCAA flagman wave the Orange & White checkered flag signifying a national championship…eight times in all. Sometimes the Lady Vols rolled in well ahead of the field… other times taking a nail-biting victory right at the end. Since winning its last championship in 2008, an extremely young team has grown yearly after suffering through a wreck-filled 22-11 campaign in 2008-09, to a much-improved 32-3 record with nary a senior last season. Collectively, this 13-player squad once again persevered and flourished during the grueling fine-tuning of the off-season and is eager to see how its new aerodynamics check out when it gets back on track…well, the basketball court. They are led by arguably the best crew chief in the business, head coach Pat Summitt, who will be starting her 37th campaign at the starting line with a 1,037-196 (.842) career record. “So many teams are going to be contenders this season, and a lot of teams are going to be running around with a target on their backs,” Summitt offered. “The challenge is out there, and we are ready to jump in and battle with the best of them.” Summitt will have a key nucleus of four players - two return as seniors and two are redshirt juniors - who remember what it was like as wide-eyed rookies in 2008 watching NCAA title number eight unfold in front of their very freshmen eyes. Senior veteran guards Angie Bjorklund (13.9 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 3.0 apg) and Sydney Smallbone (2.3 ppg, 0.6 rpg) would like nothing more than to come full circle in concluding their Lady Vol careers with bookend NCAA titles. Bjorklund, with 1,149 career points, is poised to smash a slew of Lady Vol three-point records in her final go-round. The 6’0” sharpshooter needs just 35 more made treys and 51 threepoint attempts to pass current Lady Vol record holder Shanna Zolman (2003-06). Only one of Zolman’s records might stay intact – career three-point field goal percentage at .425 – since Bjorklund’s average sits at .403. “Angie is one of the best shooters ever to play in our program,” Summitt said. “She has worked hard at improving so many facets of her game, and she takes great pride in it. By her example, Angie gives our team so much confidence and takes pressure off of the other players.” As great as Bjorklund has been on the court, she has distinguished herself in the classroom as well, having earned the coveted status as one of five CoSIDA/ESPN First Team Academic All-Americans in 2010. While Bjorklund has been filling it up, her running mate, Smallbone, has diligently worked at her game and contributed to her team in any way possible. Her special type of

Senior Angie Bjorklund will be relied on to provide the Lady Vols with leadership this season, while continuing her deft shooting touch. She is just 35 treys short of setting the UT career record.

to get back as a productive paint prowler. A tremendous multi-dimensional talent, she is a relentless rebounder and alters shots because of her length. “I can’t tell you how excited I am for a healthy Vicki Baugh to be returning to the court,” Summitt exclaimed. “She looks great and has her confidence back! Vicki makes such a difference in the post game –offensively as a great scorer and defensively in the way she can alter and block shots.” A healthy Baugh, teamed with Cain in the post, makes for a dynamic combo and puts UT in the position to play with anybody in the country in the post game. Cain had a breakout season as a sophomore and rewrote former Lady Vol Candace Parker’s single season rejection standard with 113 throwbacks in 2010. Cain’s deft touch around the rim accounted for 60.7 percent of her field goals finding the bucket. “Over the summer, Kelley worked on her game. She is stronger, more mobile and her touch has improved. We look for her to be a key consistent scorer in the coming season,” Summitt said. The bulk of the Lady Vol team is found in the “true” five-member junior class of forwards Alyssia Brewer (10.2 ppg and 5.9 rpg), Glory Johnson (10.1 ppg and 7.7 rpg) and Alicia Manning (5.4 ppg and 5.1 rpg) and guards Briana Bass (1.2 ppg and 0.7 rpg) and Shekinna Stricklen (12.7 ppg, 6.1 rpg and 3.9 apg). In 2010, the biggest surprise might have been the development of Brewer, a strong 6’3” lefty, who found her way into the starting line-up 13 times. She saved some of her best hoops for the SEC Tournament, where she was honored as the Most Valuable Player after helping to lead the Lady Vols to the 2010 title. Brewer won’t be in action for the start of the

attitude and her ability to put the team first are not categories that can be measured in a mere box score. “Syd brings it every day. She is focused and a hard worker who understands her role with the team,” Summitt said. When the 5’10” Smallbone’s number has been called she has risen to the task, as evidenced by her nine career starts and STATS OF INTEREST over 10 minutes per game contributions. The Granger, Ind., native also has a WHAT’S BACK little extra motivation – getting to a Percent Returning Final Four in her home state.

EIGHT- T IM E NAT IONAL CHAMPION S


2010-11 SEASON PREVIEW 2010-11 season until she returns from Sept. 10 surgery which repaired a tear to her left Achilles tendon as a result of a non-athletically related mishap. “We’re anxious to see how Lyssi does coming back from her freak injury,” Summitt said. “She is motivated to become a member of a three-post rotation, and we’d really like to have her in that line-up. Lyssi worked on her game this summer and returns as a more versatile player.” In Brewer’s absence, Johnson and Manning are sure to make a continued impact. This could be a transformational season for the 6’3” Johnson, who is the most athletically gifted player ever to don an Orange & White jersey. She led the team in rebounding 17 times last season and has already made her way to the charity stripe 352 times in two campaigns. Her potential is unlimited if she can personally disable the rev limiter or lift the restrictor plate off her game and just drop the hammer. “Glory has been working a great deal on her high post game and playing more efficiently off the bounce. She is such a versatile player. Glory likes to battle inside and be charged with taking on tough defensive assignments,” Summitt explained. A classmate who already plays at full throttle is the 6’1” Manning, who provided solid numbers in her 14 starts and was third on the team in assists with 82 last year. She loves to play defense and is a “get in your grill” type of defender. She was recognized for both her offensive performance and defensive tenacity as a member of the 2010 SEC All-Tournament Team. “There is no quit in A-Town’s game,” Summitt emphasized. “She goes hard to the basket and has a great pull-up jumper,” said the head coach. “She battles defensively and has a mental toughness about her when we need the ball.” Bass, at a diminutive 5’2”, had perhaps the best off-season of all 13 players. Her vocal and take-charge attitude might equate into more playing time as a junior after logging 11.2 mpg and one start as a sophomore. Bass has perhaps the most incentive of any Lady Vol in advancing to the 2011 Final Four in the “Circle City,” as Indianapolis, Ind., is her hometown. “Bree has been a good soldier,” Summitt said. “She has handled her role no matter what the circumstances might be. She came back this season as one of the most vocal players on the team and has improved her defensive intensity. I like her great attitude.” The 6’2” Stricklen has played flat-out hard at either point guard or forward in her first two seasons as a Lady Vol. Durable, she has started and played in 67 games (missed one game due to illness) while logging an impressive, iron woman-like 30.7 mpg. She led the team in assists with 135 on the year and improved in every statistical category in 2010 after being named the United States Basketball Writers Association Rookie of the Year in 2009. Entering her junior season with 869 career points, Stricklen is on pace to become the 35th all-time Lady Vol to record 1,000 career points – probably hitting the mark around mid-December. A big target as a 6’2” point guard, Stricklen has welcomed the rookie reinforcements of a pair of Lady Vol guards,

perhaps enabling her to return to her more natural forward position this season. “Shekinna can be a great point guard at 6’2” if she commits to that position,” Summitt said. “I like how she can see over and get by people in a mismatch. Problem is, Kinna is so versatile she can play the one through four spots for us on the floor. Our challenge will be to play her in the best position game-in and game-out.” Last season was an interesting time to join the Lady Vols, coming off the worst campaign in school history, but true competitor Taber Spani (5.8 ppg and 2.7 rpg) would not have had it any other way. As a rookie, the 6’1” Spani was one tough cookie who became just the 13th Lady Vol to start her very first game in Orange and White. After battling a painful case of turf-toe for most of last season, the sophomore lefty looks good in preseason drills. Her ability to be an inside-outside presence with her deep three-point range should be complemented by the strong post game. “A healthy Taber is going to give us another great three point shooter,” Summitt said. “She has looked very strong this year, and I am also counting on her for her natural floor leadership.” Fellow sophomore southpaw and guard Kamiko Williams (4.0 ppg and 1.9 rpg) is ready to translate what she learned as a rookie last season and put it into practice this year. The rangy 5’11’ speedster can cover 94-feet quickly with or without the ball. A key to the amount of playing time she sees this season will be in direct proportion to how well she takes care of the ball. “Kamiko is a player who is starting to mature into her position,” Summitt explained. “While she is a tremendous athlete, it’s not easy to digest all of the nuances of our playbook. I see her becoming more comfortable this season.” Tennessee’s backcourt attack will be bolstered by the arrival of two talented rookie guards for the upcoming campaign with the addition of 5’9” Lauren Avant of Memphis, Tenn., (Lausanne Collegiate School) and 5’9” Meighan Simmons of Cibolo, Texas (Byron P. Steele II H.S.). Avant announced her intentions of becoming a Lady Vol when she was 14 years old and produced a high school career of 2,104 points, 1,072 rebounds, 881 assists and 770 steals. She also tacked on 90 career double-doubles, seven triple-doubles and one quadruple double in 134 games. She is complemented by the scoring phenom Simmons, who tallied an incredible 3,406 career points, shattering a 25-year old San Antonio Metro Area record. A McDonald’s All-America, the Texas native scored a careerbest 25.4 ppg as a senior. Avant is more of a true point guard, while Simmons is best-suited to create from the two-guard position. “We are excited about the depth these freshmen bring to our guard play,” Summitt said. “Lauren has the mentality of a true point guard and a very high basketball IQ. I will be looking for her to push tempo at all times. “Meighan is athletically-gifted and a talented combo guard who is light on her feet and soaks up knowledge. She has great court awareness at both ends of the floor. Together, they are a very cohesive pair and love to get after people on the defensive end. They bring a great up

Junior Shekinna Stricklen will again be looked upon to be a playmaker, rebounder and a scorer for the Lady Vols after averaging 12.7 ppg, 6.1 rpg and 3.9 apg a year ago.

side to our team.” Summitt’s 2010-11 stable of 13 drivers possesses a great deal of collective horsepower in its ranks to race to the checkered flag, but lots of teams have that same idea. Tennessee’s schedule for the upcoming season will fill the mirrors with squads looking to bump the Lady Vols off the track. In addition to the Southeastern Conference slate of 16 games, the Lady Vols will also face a number of formidable non-conference foes, tangling with Baylor, Lamar, Virginia, Arizona State, Texas, Rutgers, Louisville, Stanford and Old Dominion. UT will also welcome in-state rivals Chattanooga and East Tennessee State to the schedule. A Thanksgiving excursion takes the team back to the U.S. Virgin Islands for the first time since 2005 with a three-game appearance in the Paradise Jam in St. Thomas from Nov. 2527. The Lady Vols will take a trip down memory lane facing Missouri (Nov. 25) for the first time since 1978, when associate head coach Holly Warlick was quarterbacking the Lady Vol team, and Georgia Tech (Nov. 26) who appears on UT’s schedule for the first time since 1989. Tennessee wraps up the tournament facing first time opponent Georgetown (Nov. 27). “This is another aggressive and demanding line-up of opponents for the coming year,” Summitt said. “This schedule is also exciting and challenging and will help to prepare us for post-season play.” Twenty of UT’s 25 opponents in the coming campaign participated in 2010 post season play, appearing in the NCAA or WNIT Tournaments. In all, UT will be facing competition from nine different conferences, including the Atlantic Sun, ACC, Big 12, BIG EAST, Colonial, Pac 10, Southeastern, Southern and Southland

2010-11 SEASON PREVIEW

March 3-6. When the height of March Madness begins and the NCAA Tournament is announced on March 14, four teams will be heading to Thompson-Boling Arena. Women’s basketball fans will be treated to NCAA First/ Second Round action in Knoxville, Tenn., March 19 & 21. Other NCAA First/Second Round games will be played at 15 additional sites from March 19-22, while the NCAA Regional Championships will be contested, March 26-29. “We’ve got the players, but we have to have the mentality and the heart to achieve our yearend goal of getting to Indianapolis,” Summitt said. “For us to get to Victory Lane we have to have a tremendous amount of focus to see the journey through to the end. It’s all about team and the commitment they choose to make. “I think we have the talent and skill. Will they make the investment when the rubber meets the road in showdown time? Will they dig a little deeper to get there?” The 2010-11 Lady Vols are serious about being in the hunt for the checkered flag in Indianapolis, Ind., site of the 30th running of the NCAA Final Four. They’d like nothing more than seeing the Orange & White checkered flag drop, signifying a ninth NCAA Championship as the team drives into “Victory Lane” at the Conseco Fieldhouse, the first weekend in April.

The season gets underway with a pair of exhibition tune-ups in Knoxville as CarsonNewman comes to town on Nov. 2 and twotime defending NAIA National Champion Union University (Jackson, Tenn.) heads to Rocky Top for a game on Nov. 7. Following the dress rehearsal contests, the Lady Vols officially open the season on the road taking on BIG EAST foe Louisville in the basketball opening of the brand new 22,000 seat KFC Yum! Center on Nov. 12 in the “Derby City.” Tennessee kicks-off the home portion of the 2010-11 slate against visiting Chattanooga on Nov. 15 in Thompson-Boling Arena. The remainder of the November schedule features contests at home against Virginia (Nov. 18) and Arizona State (Nov. 21) before the Lady Vols jet to the Caribbean over Thanksgiving for the Paradise Jam and three tough games. Tennessee opens the December edition of the slate at home facing its 185th all-time opponent, Lamar University on Dec. 1. The Lady Vols will then travel to meet Old Dominion (Dec. 5) before taking a week off for final exams. UT will resume playing hoops with a swing through the “Lonestar State” taking on Texas on Dec. 12 and then traveling to Waco for the first time ever to meet the Baylor Lady Bears (Dec. 14) on ESPN2. Prior to the Christmas holidays, Tennessee will welcome 2010 NCAA runner-up Stanford (Dec. 19 on ESPN2) and East Tennessee State (Dec. 22) to Thompson-Boling Arena. Following a break for the holidays, UT concludes the 2010 portion of the non-conference schedule with a game

against Rutgers in Knoxville on Dec. 30. In January, the Lady Vols open the 2011 side of the campaign with another aggressive SEC line-up, traveling to LSU (Jan. 2) before opening conference play at home on Jan. 6 against Alabama. The first month of the year continues with home games versus Mississippi (Jan. 9), Vanderbilt (Jan. 15 on ESPN) and Mississippi State (Jan. 27). UT will hit the road to play at Florida (Jan. 13), South Carolina (Jan. 20), Auburn (Jan. 23) and Arkansas (Jan. 30). The January contest with Vanderbilt in Knoxville will take on a special flair as ESPN College GameDay Driven by State Farm® will air its first-ever doubleheader on Jan 15, 2011 from Thompson-Boling Arena. It will mark the first time the show has originated from a site that has featured a men’s and women’s game played in the same day and kicks off ESPN’s eight-week GameDay slate. The Lady Vols will host Vanderbilt at 8:00 p.m. ET in ThompsonBoling Arena after the Vols’ matchup with the Commodores opens the day at noon ET. Both games will be on ESPN. “The opportunity to have ESPN GameDay in Knoxville is tremendous for the University of Tennessee,” Summitt said. “It will be an all-Vol and a treat for Tennessee basketball fans and great exposure for both of our programs.” The Lady Vols open the month of February with a pivotal game on ESPN2 at Kentucky on Feb. 7 followed by away games at Vanderbilt (Feb. 13) and Mississippi (Feb. 24). February home dates include Florida (Feb. 10), South Carolina (Feb. 17), a “Big Monday” meeting with Georgia on ESPN2 (Feb. 21) and the Senior Day Celebration on Feb. 27 against LSU. In the 16-game SEC schedule, Tennessee plays home-and-home games with Florida, LSU, Mississippi and South Carolina once again this season, to go along with their annual home-and-home traditional rival contest versus Vanderbilt. “The SEC will be as strong and unpredictable as it has ever been,” Summitt professed. “From the top team to the 12th team, everyone is going to have to bring its ‘A game’ every night in this league. Great coaching minds and some more incredible young talent are going to make an always tough league even tougher.” In the postseason, the 2011 SEC Tournament returns to the Music City in Nashville, Tenn.,

HEAD COACH PAT SUMMITT

PAT SUMMITT 37th Season at Tennessee

1,037 wins and 196 losses For nearly four decades, the University of Tennessee’s Pat Head Summitt has kept the Lady Vol basketball program among the nation’s elite and in the process has changed the way women’s collegiate hoops is perceived across the country. No one has done a better job of managing what goes on inside the 94x50 rectangle known as a collegiate basketball court. Her unfathomable 1,037 wins against just 196 losses, eight NCAA Championships and 29 combined Southeastern Conference titles directly speak to her incredible management and mastery of the 4,700 square feet of roundball real estate. And few have even come close to accomplishing what she has done outside the lines for the last 36 years. To her peers, she is well-respected, ethical and a winner who serves as a shining example in the sport of collegiate basketball. The incomparable Summitt has built collegiate basketball’s “hoopdom” at Tennessee. A program developed tirelessly, diligently and successfully by Summitt, her staff and the 158 student-athletes who have been fortunate enough to don the Orange & White jerseys of the Tennessee Lady Volunteers. Summitt, already the all-time winningest coach in NCAA basketball history (men or women), will enter the 2010-11 campaign with eight NCAA Championships in the trophy case, including her most recent back-to-back titles in 2007 and 2008. A brief synopsis of Summitt’s résumé goes like this: A consummate taskmaster, she has kept her elite program in the winner’s circle for almost four decades, producing a mind-boggling record of 1,037-196 (.842). During her tenure, the Lady Vols have won eight NCAA titles, as well as an amazing 29 Southeastern Conference tournament and regular season championships. Tennessee has made an unprecedented 29 consecutive appearances in the NCAA Tournament and produced 12 Olympians, 19 Kodak All-Americans named to 33 teams and 74 All-SEC performers. Along with the success on the court, Summitt’s student-athletes have tremendous productivity in the classroom. Coach Summitt has a 100 percent graduation rate for all Lady Vol student-athletes who have completed their eligibility at Tennessee. She’ll Tell You – It’s All About the Players Throughout the years, Summitt has reached numerous goals and worn many hats at the University of Tennessee as a student, an educator and a coach. She’ll be the first to tell you that her success is due to the players who have represented Lady Vol basketball since she came on board as the head coach as a 22year old in 1974. And today, it is still safe to say that she is an educator and role model to her players, a student of the ever-changing game and one of the most successful women’s basketball coaches in the nation. In so many ways, she is more than just a coach. To her athletes, she is just “Pat” from the minute she meets them for the first time on a recruiting visit to the day they walk across the stage in Thompson-

Boling Arena to receive their diploma from UT. To the University of Tennessee she is a goodwill ambassador, taking her teams to play basketball in more than 40 states and 11 foreign countries. And the résumé she has created along with an outstanding cast of players and staff is amazing. Thirty-six seasons as a proven winner, champion, master motivator and role model. Who is Pat Head Summitt? She’s an intense, demanding, focused, bright blue steely-eyed competitor who is also a very caring, family-oriented person who enjoys a great walk on the beach with the family dogs, Sally Sue and Sadie, or assembling a good ole southern home-cooked meal for her team. Her players speak of the opportunities afforded them later in life with a degree in life lessons from Summitt and a diploma from Tennessee. And, of course, there is the incredible graduation rate of her players and the successes they have garnered in life long after their playing days were over at Tennessee. Every Lady Vol who has completed her eligibility at UT has received her degree or is in the process of completing her degree requirements. Summitt instills a pattern of success in her players and constantly challenges them to reach their potential as a student and an athlete. Incredibly, every Lady Vol hoopster (since 1976) has played in at least one Final Four during her career at Tennessee. There have been three classes of players in Lady Vol history to go to the Final Four all four years of their UT tenure. First to do it was the class of Sheila Frost, Bridgette Gordon and Melissa McCray (1986, 1987, 1988 and 1989) – that trio won NCAA Championships in 1987 and 1989. The next player to do it was Laurie Milligan (1995, 1996, 1997 and 1998). Milligan was onboard for three consecutive titles, 199697-98. The class of Shyra Ely, Brittany Jackson and Loree Moore also accomplished the feat– they went in 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005. The Million Dollar Coach The night Summitt registered her 1,000th victory, the University of Tennessee awarded her with a new contract. Then UT President Dr. John Petersen and Women’s Athletics Director Joan Cronan announced on Feb. 5, 2009, that Summitt signed a contract extension that will run through 2014. Summitt earned $1.4 million for 2008-09 and received a $200,000 bonus for her 1,000 wins at Tennessee. The contract also included two lifetime achievement bonuses – $500,000 in 200910 and a $1 million longevity bonus in 2013-2014 to reward her for her 40 years as head coach of the Lady Vols. Previously, on May 22, 2006, UT awarded Summitt a six-year contract extension taking her to a $1.5 million compensation package by 2011-2012. It seems only fitting, with all of her firsts and achievements in the game, that Summitt became the first women’s basketball coach to break through the million dollar ceiling. Despite her mega wealth these days, she still coaches for the love of the game and can remember

when her annual salary started out at $8,900 in 1974. She Gives Back, Too In August 2008, Summitt committed $600,000 to the University of Tennessee. The donation to The Campaign for Tennessee was split between the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and Martin to support the women’s basketball programs on each campus and includes a $100,000 endowed scholarship for a Lady Vol basketball graduate assistant in honor of her parents Richard and Hazel Head with the hope that “this gift will afford other young women the same opportunities that I had as a graduate assistant.” The Progression of the Winningest Coach It seemed only fitting that Summitt broke the most significant record in her coaching career – 1,000 career wins – against longtime foe coach Andy Landers and his

HEAD COACH PAT SUMMITT Georgia Lady Bulldogs in a Southeastern Conference regular-season clash at home on “The Summitt.” UT’s mentor had been imploring the youngest team in her tenure to play a 40-minute game, and her squad responded with the 73-43 victory on Feb. 5, 2009. Onehundred and twenty wins earlier, on March 22, 2005, in Knoxville, Tenn., she led her Lady Vols past Purdue, 7554, in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The victory was the 880th of her coaching career, moving her past the legendary Dean Smith of North Carolina (879 victories) as the all-time winningest coach in NCAA history. Summitt earned her most recent 100 wins (9011,000) in a span of just three years and 17 days. Her fastest 100-win total occurred between victories No. 500 and No. 600, which she achieved in only three years and two days. Her toughest set of 100 wins? Victories 200-300 took five years and 32 days to collect. Summitt stands alone at the 1,000-victory plateau among all NCAA coaches, having passed the 900-win club members retired Don Meyer (923-324, .746) of Northern State, NCAA Div. II; Herb Magee (907-353, .718; still active at Philadelphia Univ., NCAA Div. II); retired Bob Knight (902-317, .706) and Jody Conradt (900-307, .746). In reaching such an elite level, she passed a handful of legendary coaches in the 800-club – Dean Smith (879-254, .776), Adolph Rupp (876-190, .822), Mike Krzyzewski (868-279, .756; still active at Duke), Jim Phelan (830-524, .613), Jim Boeheim (829293, .738; still active at Syracuse), Clarence Gaines (828-447, .649), Jim Calhoun (823-358, .696; still active at UConn), Jerry Johnson (821-447, .647) and Eddie Sutton (804-328, .710). (Gene Bess of NJCAA’s Three Rivers Community College, Poplar Bluff, Mo., is still active with a 1,112-290 record; Harry Statham of NAIA’s McKendree College, Lebanon, Ill., is still active with a 1,022-388 record). Two Courts and a Gym Bear Her Name As a prepster, Summitt went to Cheatham County High School, where she went by the name of “Trish” and was voted “Most Popular” and “Basketball Sweetheart.” The gym that she played in as a CCHS Cubette now bears her name. When Summitt brought her team to play at the University of Tennessee at Martin, on Nov. 23, 1997, her alma mater spent the weekend honoring the Lady Vol coach. UTM designated a street on campus, “Pat Head Summitt Avenue,” and named the basketball court in the Skyhawk Arena, the Pat Head Summitt Court, for their former star player. Summitt’s Lady Vol team christened the newly-named court with a 73-32 victory. UT in Knoxville also named a campus street after Summitt and to commemorate her reaching the top of the all-time coaching wins list with 880 victories, the University of Tennessee named its basketball court at the Thompson-Boling Arena, “The Summitt,” in a surprise postgame ceremony following the win over Purdue on March 22, 2005. She also is the only person to have two basketball courts used by Division I basketball teams named in her honor.

the time. “I do not think I could go without recognizing that it was a tremendous team effort…has been for the last three weeks. This team has played as hard and as smart as I could ask any team to play.” With one championship banner in the rafters at Thompson-Boling Arena, the Lady Vols were hungry for more. After failing to defend their title in 1988, the Lady Vols were back in the title game in 1989 as a battle of the SEC powerhouses ensued – Tennessee versus Auburn for all the marbles in Tacoma, Wash. Although they were up against a Lady Tiger team that had made its second straight national championship final, the Lady Vols took home its second NCAA championship in three years with a 76-60 win. Vindication was finally Tennessee’s in the 1991 NCAA women’s final, as the Lady Vols downed a talented Virginia Cavalier club, 70-67, in the first NCAA Final Four overtime title game. Virginia had eliminated Tennessee before it could reach the 1990 Women’s Final Four – which just happened to be held in Knoxville. But the Lady Vols took New Orleans by storm and claimed their third NCAA title in five years. It would be five more years before UT hit title paydirt again. In 1996, it seemed only fitting that the Lady Vols would win another NCAA crown in the “Queen City” of Charlotte, N.C. And it was equally fitting that the Lady Vols’ fourth NCAA title would come over a fierce SEC rival in the Georgia Lady Bulldogs, 83-65. A year later, the 1997 Lady Vol team had been through a trying campaign. An HBO documentary crew followed the team all year, filming “The Cinderella Season: The Lady Vols Fight Back” as Tennessee miraculously made it to the Final Four with a 27-10 record. Despite the rough season, Summitt never stopped believing in that group, and in the end, they came together and accomplished something more highly touted UT teams never did -- they won back-to-back NCAA titles. No team had ever won the NCAA championship coming in with more than six losses. But proving that it’s wise to save your best for last, Tennessee took its fifth NCAA championship and second straight title with a 68-59 win over Old Dominion. “Of all our runs to a championship, this one is really the most unexpected,” said Summitt. “It came from a team with tremendous heart and desire.” With the win, the Lady Vols earned their fifth national title, played in their seventh championship game and

became only the second team to win consecutive championships, joining the 1983 and 1984 Southern Cal squads. The 1998 Tennessee Lady Vols will be remembered as history-makers. A perfect 39-0 record and the most wins ever in women’s collegiate basketball…an NCAA unprecedented three consecutive titles…and the systematic blowout night-after-night of the opposition. When the team finally reached the NCAA title game in Kansas City against a dear old rival in Louisiana Tech, Lady Techster coach Leon Barmore called the 1997-98 squad “the greatest team ever to play the game.” With the win, the Lady Vols earned their sixth national title, played in their eighth championship game and became the first team to win three consecutive NCAA titles. From 1999-2006, a total of eight seasons, the Lady Vols advanced to the Final Four five times and came home with three runner-up finishes and two third-place spots. The critics were tough…when was Tennessee going to hang another banner? It seemed fitting, on the 20th anniversary of the Lady Vols’ first NCAA title, that Tennessee once again captured an NCAA title – the school’s seventh crown. In a pair of gutsy games, a team known for its high-octane performances pulled out defense, boards and some serious tenacity to claim the seventh title. The showdown in Cleveland, Ohio, pitted the Lady Vols against #2-ranked North Carolina in the semifinals and a championship game meeting with #15/18-ranked Rutgers. As the seconds ticked down, Lady Vol sophomore Candace Parker stole the ball from North Carolina’s Alex Miller, and the Lady Vols rallied to beat North Carolina 56-50. “At the eight-minute mark, I said, ‘We don’t want to go home; we’re not leaving here without a national championship,”’ Summitt said. The Lady Vols captured the elusive seventh national title on April 3, 2007, beating Rutgers to the ball for second and third shots in a 59-46 win to reclaim their customary place above all other programs. A year later, Tennessee would find itself back in the 2008 edition of the Final Four in Tampa, Fla., as the defending NCAA Champs. No one liked Tennessee’s chances of winning the crown again except the Orange Nation and the players and staff in the UT locker room. In the semifinals, UT and LSU played through a defensive struggle down to the wire as Alexis

She’s Won Eight NCAA Basketball Titles Time flies when you’re winning. It hardly seems possible that in 2007, Tennessee celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Lady Vols’ first NCAA title in 1987. When Summitt and her Lady Vols (dubbed the “Cornfed Chicks”) arrived in Austin, Texas, for the 1987 Final Four, they were the decided underdogs to host Texas, Louisiana Tech and Long Beach State. In just 13 seasons, this marked Summitt’s eighth trip to the Final Four, and this time her Lady Vols were ready. After dispatching Long Beach State in the semis, the Lady Vols thumped Louisiana Tech, 67-44, in the title game. “Well, the monkey’s off my back,” Summitt said at

EIGHT- T IM E NAT IONAL CHAMPION S


HEAD COACH PAT SUMMITT Hornbuckle connected on her only basket of the night -- a buzzer-beater rebound put back to give UT the 47-46 win. Tennessee entered its 13th national championship game as the underdogs…only one of the media pundits gave the Lady Vols a chance – everyone else had their money riding on Stanford. The Lady Vols had other ideas, as a swarming and badgering team defense stifled the Cardinal, forcing 25 turnovers and allowing just 19 second-half points en route to Tennessee’s convincing 64-48 victory. In the end, Parker was voted the Most Outstanding Player of the 2008 Final Four with 17 points, as she played through the pain. She good-naturedly displayed the NCAA Championship trophy on the ESPN Gameday set in her final interview – a not so subtle reminder that the Lady Vols had once again won it all. With a bevy of NCAA title banners decorating Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville, it came as no surprise when the NCAA celebrated 25 years of NCAA Women’s Championships in 2006 that it would honor Summitt as the Coach of the NCAA Division I Basketball 25th Anniversary Team and named former Lady Vols Chamique Holdsclaw and Bridgette Gordon to the fivewoman team. In the Company of Legends In all of men and women’s collegiate basketball history, Summitt trails only UCLA’s legendary coach John Wooden for the most NCAA titles. Wooden grabbed 10 titles in 29 years; Summitt has picked up eight in 36 seasons (including the NCAA’s first back-to-back-to-back women’s titles in 1996, 1997 and 1998) to pass Kentucky’s legendary coach, Adolph Rupp. Additionally, Summitt passed Wooden’s NCAA record for Final Four appearances with her 13th in 2002 and now has a total of 18. In this elite company of the legends -- of the top NCAA Champion titleholders -- Summitt’s teams have played in and recorded the most NCAA tournament victories, winning 106 of 127 NCAA contests. On the men’s side, the Lady Vols are trailed by Duke’s 99 tournament games and 77 wins under Mike Krzyzewski. Wooden’s Bruins played in 57 NCAA games, winning 47 times, while Bob Knight’s Indiana Hoosiers played in 60 NCAA games, claiming 41 victories through the years. Rupp’s Wildcats won 30 games while making 48 appearances in the “Big Dance.” Summitt a living legend? You bet. She Loves to Dance in March and April Summitt has led her teams to the Final Four of women’s college basketball (both AIAW and NCAA) 22 times in the last 36 years. Eleven of her last 16 teams have advanced to the Final Four, with the 1987, 1989, 1991, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2007 and 2008 teams winning the NCAA title. By winning back-to-back-to-back titles in 1996, 1997 and 1998, Tennessee became the first team ever to accomplish that feat in NCAA women’s basketball championship history. In other national finishes at the Final Four, the Lady Vols have finished second seven times and third seven times. The Perfect Season In 1997-98, everything landed perfectly for Summitt. Consider the following: her 24th edition of a Lady Vol basketball team ran the table with a perfect 39-0 record; this group won an unprecedented third consecutive NCAA title; Summitt’s businesslike philosophy of coaching was chronicled in a best-selling book, “Reach for the Summit” and was followed by “Raise the Roof”; Home Box Office (HBO) released a documentary about Summitt’s fifth NCAA Championship team, “A Cinderella Season: The 1997 Lady Vols Fight Back”; and Summitt became the first female coach to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated. When the smoke cleared after the 1997-98 season, there was absolutely no doubt that the best team was Tennessee. A 39-0 campaign, capped off with the program’s sixth national title in 12 years, resulted in hoops analysts and fans everywhere proclaiming the 1997-98 Lady Vols as the best collegiate women’s basketball team of all time. Summitt’s team didn’t just win games; they dominated opponents, coasting by an average margin of 30.1 points per contest. In the Final Four, where only the nation’s top tournamenttested teams advanced, Tennessee dispatched Arkansas (86-58) and Louisiana Tech (93-75) by an average of 23.0 points. The 39-0 mark, at that time, also gave UT the most wins and best record in the NCAA men’s or women’s basketball history. The Connecticut Huskies tied the Lady Vols’ record with their 39-0 finish in 2002. Inside the Numbers One of the most incredible numbers posted by Summitt over 36 seasons is her record against ranked opponents. An astounding 47.2 percent of ALL games coached by Summitt have come against ranked opponents with the Lady Vols producing a 423-159 record and a .727 winning percentage. Imagine facing a ranked opponent in practically every other game in your career. Summitt has faced this challenge for 36 years, night-in and night-out. Additionally, 95 percent of the time she has faced an unranked opponent, Summitt’s teams have won 614 games and faced upset in just 37 contests. During her career, she has enjoyed 475 of her wins in the friendly confines of a home arena against just 45 losses for a 91 percent winning mark. On the road, her teams have fashioned a 340-89 mark (.793) and at neutral sites, she is 222-62 (.782). A quick look at Summitt’s season finishes tells the story: 22 trips to NCAA (18 of 29) and AIAW (4 of 5) Final Fours in the last 34 years; 34 consecutive seasons with 20 or more wins; 19 seasons of 30-plus wins and over the last 18 years alone, Summitt’s teams have collected 14, 30-plus-win campaigns! The year-by-year success of the coach and her teams at Tennessee is evidenced by the numbers ... 824-145 (.850) during the regular season, 213-51 (.807) in the

postseason, and 1,037-196 (.841) overall for 36 years. Her worksheets have resulted in an average of 28.8 wins and 5.4 losses per season for her career. Bringing Home the Gold If her exploits of success in the collegiate ranks are not enough for 36 years of coaching, then consider her brilliant international coaching record. In 1977, Summitt was given the first U.S. Junior National Team to coach, and she led it to two gold medals in international play. What makes it so remarkable is that one year earlier Summitt was a player on the U.S. Olympic Team. Her next international challenge was taking the U.S. National Team to the 1979 William R. Jones Cup Games, the 1979 World Championships and the 1979 Pan American Games. Summitt and her team returned home with two gold medals and one silver medal. When the Moscow Olympic Games rolled around in 1980, she was honored as the assistant coach to the late Sue Gunter. Although the United States boycotted the Games, the team still captured the pre-Olympic qualifying tournament title. In August 1982, Summitt was named the 1984 U.S. Women’s Olympic basketball coach, and the rush for the gold was on! She coached the 1983 World Championship team to a silver medal finish; but the silver was not indicative of the team’s play. The XXIII Olympiad in Los Angeles, Calif., found Summitt’s U.S. squad tearing through the opposition by a bundle of points. When the gold medal was a reality, Summitt’s team lifted her high and carried the “All-World” coach around the Los Angeles Forum for all to applaud. Coaching Honors Over the years, Summitt has received a plethora of coaching awards and honors. In July 2009, The Sporting News named the 50 Greatest Coaches of All-Time. Summitt was voted the 11th best of all-time and was the only woman on the list. Other recent accolades include a resolution by the U.S. House of Representatives on June 5, 2009; an honorary doctorate from the United States Sports Academy on May 19, 2009; receiving the 2009 WNBA Inspiring Coach Award on April 7, 2009, and being honored by her peers with the RUSSELL ATHLETIC/WBCA Victory Club Award for 1,000 career wins on April 6, 2009. After winning her eighth NCAA title, Summitt received the prestigious John R. Wooden Legends of Coaching lifetime achievement award in Los Angeles, Calif., on April 12, 2008. She became the first ever female recipient of the Legends of Coaching Award, which was adopted by the John R. Wooden Award Committee in 1999. The award recognizes the lifetime achievement of coaches who exemplify the late Coach Wooden’s high standards of coaching success and personal achievement. She was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass., on Oct. 13, 2000, the first time she was eligible for the Hall’s ballot. At the time, Summitt became just the fourth women’s basketball coach to earn Hall of Fame honors when she was inducted with the Class of 2000, which included former NBA greats Isiah Thomas and Bob McAdoo, legendary high school coach Morgan Wootten and contributors C.M. Newton and Danny Biasone. A little more than a year earlier, Summitt was inducted into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in the 1999 inaugural class. Summitt’s achievements are unparalleled in the collegiate coaching ranks. In addition to her inductions into the Halls of Fame, she was named as the Naismith Coach of the Century in April 2000. She was doubly honored when former Lady Vol Chamique Holdsclaw was selected as the Naismith Player of the Century. Prior to those announcements, ESPN selected her program as the “Team of the Decade” (1990s), tying with the Florida State Seminole football machine. In

1990, Summitt received the most prestigious award given by the Basketball Hall of Fame, the John Bunn Award. Summitt was the first female to receive the award in the Hall’s history. In October 1990, Summitt was enshrined in the Women’s Sports Foundation Hall of Fame at a gala event in New York City. In the springs of 1994, 1997 and 1998, Summitt was named the Coach of the Year by the Touchdown Club of Columbus, Ohio, and also was a recipient at the 28th, 32nd and 34th Victor Awards (benefiting the City of Hope) as the Women’s Basketball Coach of the Year in 1994, 1998 and 2000. In April 1996, she was inducted into the National Association for Sport and Physical Education’s Hall of Fame. She was a June 1997 recipient of the Casey Award, which is annually presented by the Kansas City Sports Commission, and a September recipient of the 1997 Governor Ned McWherter Award of Excellence. Summitt has been named the 1987, 1989, 1994, 1998 and 2004 Naismith College Coach of the Year, the WBCA/Converse Coach of the Year in 1983 and 1995 and the IKON/WBCA Coach of the Year in 1998. Earning Southeastern Conference Coach of the Year honors has almost been tougher to acquire than the national accolades. In 30 years of SEC play, Summitt’s teams have produced a 424-66 (.865) record and captured a combined 29 SEC titles (15 SEC Championships and 14 SEC Tournament Championships). Despite her success, she has only been named SEC Coach of the Year seven times – 1993, 1995, 1998, 2001, 2003, 2004 and 2007. Notable Awards & Community Involvement A celebrated figure in women’s athletics, Summitt is busy off the court as well. On Oct. 21, 2008, she was selected as an inaugural recipient of the Joe Lapchick Character Award – an award established to recognize basketball coaches who have shown the character and coaching ability of Hall of Famer Joe Lapchick – along with Lou Carnesecca of St. John’s and Dean Smith of North Carolina. On November 12, 2007, Summitt was recognized as one of “Americas Best Leaders for 2007” as released by U.S. News & World Report, the nation’s leading source of news analysis and service journalism. Summitt, the only sports figure selected, joined such luminaries as James A. Baker III, actor Michael J. Fox, U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, world renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma and Dr. Harold Varmus, President and CEO of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, among others, to be included on the elite list. In July 2007, she was recognized as the 2007 Dick Enberg Award winner by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). Established in 1997, the Dick Enberg Award is given annually to a person whose actions and commitment have furthered the meaning and reach of the Academic All-America Teams program and/or the student-athlete while promoting the values of education and academics. At the ESPYs in the summer of 2008, she won the award for Best Coach/Manager (collegiate or pro level), while her team picked up duplicate hardware. Her 2006-07 team won two awards at the 15th annual event, both marking its national championship. The team was named best women’s collegiate team and also won the Under Armour Undeniable Award for best women’s collegiate team. The New York Athletic Club also recognized Summitt with its “Winged Foot” Award in May 2007 and 2008. In December 2003, she was appointed to the Board of the Smithsonian National Museum of American History/Behring Center. In May 2003, she was honored at GALA XVI as a Woman of Distinction at the biennial event. In February 1997, she was honored at a White House luncheon given by former First Lady Hillary

HEAD COACH PAT SUMMITT Clinton, recognizing the “25 Most Influential Working Mothers” as selected by Working Mother magazine. In 1996, she co-chaired the United Way Campaign in Knoxville. She gave hundreds of speeches and logged incredible amounts of time visiting the various United Way agencies while recruiting, running camps and continuing to direct the most successful program in the nation. Away from the game she has been involved in a number of community activities. Most recently she became the spokesperson for Verizon Wireless’ HopeLine program. HopeLine collects used wireless phones to be recycled or sold and donates the proceeds to nonprofit domestic violence advocacy organizations or uses the proceeds to purchase handsets for victims. At no cost to the recipients, the phones are preprogrammed with numbers such as 9-1-1. Additionally, she is an active spokesperson for the United Way, The Race for the Cure and Juvenile Diabetes. She has been a member of Big Brothers/Big Sisters and was the honorary chair for the Tennessee Easter Seal Society in 1985, 1987, 1988 and 1989. She is still active as an alumna with the Chi Omega sorority. In 1994, she served as the Tennessee chair of the American Heart Association. In January 1996, she was named “Distinguished Citizen of the Year” by the Great Smoky Mountain Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The Lupus Foundation also bestowed an award on Summitt in the winter of 1996. In May 1997, Proffitt’s and the Tennessee Lung Association presented her the “Tennessee Woman of Distinction Award”. She has been honored as one of the WISE 1999 Women of the Year, the 1999 ARETE Award for Courage in Sports, as one of Glamour magazine’s “1998 Women of the Year,” and the City of Knoxville’s “1998 Woman of the Year.” At the February 1999 and 2000 ESPY Awards, she was nominated for Coach of the Year (won by Joe Torre of the N.Y. Yankees) and Team of the Year (won also by the Bronx Bombers). At the 2000 ESPYs, her Lady Vols were chosen as “Team of the Decade”, tying for the honor with the Florida State football team. Additionally, she holds or has held the following positions: associate athletics director at the University of Tennessee; a past vice-president of USA BASKETBALL; past Olympic representative on the Advisory Committee to USA BASKETBALL; a member of the Board of Trustees of the Basketball Hall of Fame; and a member of the Board of Directors for the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, commencement speaker, color commentator for network television, clinician and contributor to a film series. To the CEO of a corporation whose morale needs a lift, she is the perfect motivational speaker – in the past few years she has traveled extensively making motivational speeches to everyone from the Central Intelligence Agency to Victoria’s Secret to Federal Express to the Federal Reserve Board. In the summer of 2002, she added WNBA consultant to her vitae as she assisted the Washington Mystics with player personnel and the draft. Not surprisingly, the Mystics earned their first-ever WNBA playoff berth in the summer of 2003 and repeated again in 2004. Summitt stepped aside of her consulting efforts in 2005. Family and Lifelong Friends Call Her “Trish”; at Tennessee, She Became “Pat” How Pat Came to Knoxville Success and accomplishment have always followed Pat Summitt. The folks at the University of TennesseeMartin thought she was better than pretty good when she enrolled at the west Tennessee university to play basketball and volleyball. By the time Summitt graduated from UT-Martin in 1974, she symbolized the prototype player of the decades to come. She was strong ... had great instincts ... was awesome on defense ... took a charge like a greedy housewife ... denied the ball all over the court ...

rebounded with authority ... took the ball to the hoop ... and then could knock the lights out over a zone defense. In 1973, she made her first U.S. national team when she represented the United States at the World University Games in the Soviet Union. She returned to UT-Martin for her senior season with loftier goals, such as making the 1976 Olympic team. However, four games into her final season as a Lady Pacer, she suffered a near career-ending knee injury. She was determined to get the knee back into shape and try out for the Olympic Games, but not many people gave her a chance. The University of Tennessee in Knoxville, though, showed its confidence in her abilities as a coach when the school offered her a graduate teaching assistantship and the reins to the women’s intercollegiate basketball team as a 22-yearold. The position suited her needs to a “T” -- she could pursue her career and stay close to basketball as she rehabilitated her knee. The late Helen B. Watson, the former chairperson of UT’s Physical Education Department, can be credited for bringing a young Pat Head to Knoxville. Watson asked Head to coach the Tennessee women’s team in a letter dated April 30, 1974, when Head was a 21-year old senior at UT-Martin. In her letter, Watson wrote, “we have an excellent potential team, and I believe that they would be happy to have you as their coach.’’ At the time, Head was being courted as the assistant coach who would also serve as a graduate teaching assistant in the Physical Education Department at UT while she pursued her master’s degree. An enthusiastic Head accepted the position. Imagine her shock two weeks later when Watson called back and informed Head that the women’s basketball coach, Margaret Hutson, had decided to take a sabbatical and Tennessee was offering her the job as head coach. Head, who had never run a practice or made out a practice plan or schedule, said she really contemplated her decision because as she put it, “I was absolutely overwhelmed and scared to death.” Patricia Sue Head arrived in Knoxville as the new head coach and was practically the same age as the seniors on her team. A little shy at the time, she never corrected Dr. Helen B. Watson or Dr. Nancy Lay, her mentors in the UT Physical Education Department, when they shortened Patricia to Pat, assuming that’s the name she went by. Head never mentioned to them that she had gone by Tricia or Trish her whole life. In her first year as a collegiate coach, she led her team to a 16-8 overall record, attended classes as a master’s degree candidate, taught physical education classes and stayed in playing shape. As the summer of 1975 approached, she thought the knee was ready for a big test. The knee held and so did Summitt -- held, that is, a spot on the U.S. Women’s World Championship team and the 1975 Pan American Games team. After another summer of international experience, she returned home to coach her Lady Vols to a 16-11 record, a second-place finish in the state tournament and a spot for herself on the 1976 U.S. Olympic Team. Playing on the Olympic Team in Montreal at the Games of the XXI Olympiad was the high point of her competitive playing career, as she helped lead the United States to a silver medal finish while serving as the team’s co-captain. Little did she know at the time but those first two Lady Vol teams -- with just 16 wins each -- would be the only ones not to record at least 20 wins in a season during her tenure as head coach.

chance of being a winner.” Patricia Sue Head Summitt was born on June 14, 1952, in Clarksville, Tenn., the daughter of Richard and Hazel Albright Head. She was the fourth of five children – Tommy, Charles, Kenneth and Linda -- and the first girl. Growing up on the family farm, her late father (he passed away on Oct. 23, 2005) was a no-nonsense disciplinarian. Hard work was the norm from sunrise to sundown and all five children had a variety of chores assigned to them daily. As a youngster, her time was consumed with school work, farm chores, and playing basketball in the hayloft with her brothers. She could chop tobacco, plow a field and bale hay with the best of them. Hard work was the backbone of the Head family success, but being a good student was just as important – “Trish” never missed a day of school from kindergarten through high school. Becoming a mother in 1990, her story of going into labor on a recruiting trip to future-Lady Vol Michelle Marciniak’s home is legendary. With her water broken, she still completed the recruiting visit in Macungie, Pa., and then flew home to Knoxville, urging the pilots not to stop so her son would be born in Tennessee. Along with her 20-year old son, a University of Tennessee sophomore and walk-on guard for the Tennessee men’s basketball team, Ross “Tyler” Summitt, and motherdaughter yellow Labrador retrievers, Sally-Sue and Sadie, they enjoy living in the family compound along the banks of the Tennessee River. She spends her getaway time at the beach or relaxing by the pool. She also enjoys cooking, golf, running and boating.

Most of All, She’s Tyler’s Mom; the Late-Richard and Hazel’s Daughter and Sister to Tommy, Charles, Kenneth and Linda “My parents taught me a long time ago that you win in life with people,” Summitt said. “And that’s important, because if you hang with winners, you stand a great

Holly Warlick celebrated her silver anniversary as an assistant at the University of Tennessee in 2009-10 by helping lead the Lady Vols to their 17th 30-win season with her as a coach alongside fellow Women’s Basketball Hall of Famer, UT Head Coach Pat Summitt. Now entering her 26th season as an assistant to Summitt, Warlick and the rest of the coaching staff, have their sights set on obtaining an unprecedented ninth national championship in 2010-11. As Summitt has become the all-time winningest coach in NCAA Division I men’s or women’s collegiate hoops, Warlick has been by her side, either as a player or an assistant, for 888 of the 1,037 wins collected by her mentor. The seniormost member of Summitt’s staff, she capably slid into the role as top assistant in 2003-04 following the departure of longtime Associate Head Coach Mickie DeMoss. The return of DeMoss this season, coupled with Warlick, gives Summitt a pair of national assistant coaches of the year and the core of her staff that captured six national championships from 1987-1998. In 2007, the WBCA named Warlick the nation’s top assistant coach after she helped lead UT to its seventh national title. That was the same year that Warlick teamed with former Lady Vol assistant Nikki Caldwell, the current head coach at UCLA, to pursue her other passions: raising money for the fight against breast cancer and motorcycle riding. Warlick and Caldwell created the Champions For A Cause Foundation, a long haul motorcycle ride dedicated to raising funds and awareness for a cure for breast cancer. The charitable organization has raised and donated over $100,000, and this past summer the duo led a fourth annual trip – this time from Knoxville to Niagara Falls, N.Y. and back. Past trips include the inaugural ride from San Francisco to Knoxville as well as trips to Key West, Fla., and New Orleans. On Feb. 10, 2008, Warlick and Caldwell presented a $10,000 check to the late N.C. State Head Coach Kay Yow and the Kay Yow/ WBCA Cancer Fund. With all of her accomplishments in coaching and in her charitable endeavors it might be easy to forget that 30 years ago Warlick left just as powerful a mark on women’s hoops as a player. However, somehow it doesn’t seem that long ago that the charismatic Knoxville native was flying up and down the court as a Lady Vol All-America point guard. For over three decades, Warlick has been considered as the finest point guard to ever play for

the University of Tennessee Lady Vols. A number of Halls of Fames agree, as she has been enshrined in five of them: On Feb. 27, 2004, she was inducted into the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame. In October 2002, she became a member of the University of Tennessee Lady Vol Hall of Fame in the second class of inductees. In June 2001, the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame selected Warlick as one of 10 inductees enshrined into the Hall for the Class of 2001. For the hometown girl, who grew up in Rocky Hill, just up the road from the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, it was a dream come true. In January 1994, Warlick was selected to the CONVERSE/Lady Vol Team of the Decade for the 1980s. In the summer of 1994, Warlick was honored as one of the City of Knoxville’s finest all-time athletes with her inclusion into the Knoxville Sports Hall of Fame. Including this season, Warlick has spent 30 years with the program, having helped shape UT into a national powerhouse with tenure as both a player and a coach. Warlick’s expertise and major contributions to the team come from her work with the guards. Last season, sophomore point guard Shekinna Stricklen nabbed Honorable Mention Associated Press All-America honors. Additionally, she has been a highly-successful recruiter for the backcourt, attracting some of the nation’s finest players to UT to continue the excellence she helped establish as a player. The Lady Vols welcomed a pair of top flight guard prospects to the Orange and White for the upcoming season in Memphis native Lauren Avant and 2010 McDonald’s All-America Co-MVP Meighan Simmons. Warlick’s tutelage also helped to strengthen the game of Kara Lawson, a KODAK All-American and a four-time Lady Vol AllSEC performer, and Shanna Zolman, a three-time All-SEC selection. The duo accounts for the school records for most of UT’s three-point marks. In 1998, the NCAA Division I women’s basketball coaches recognized Warlick as one of the nation’s top assistants as she was ranked in The Women’s Basketball Journal poll as was DeMoss, who won the award. Warlick’s association with the Lady Vols started in 1976 when she joined the program as a scholarship 400-meter track athlete who walked on to the basketball team. Soon, she would become the most prolific player in the history of Tennessee Lady Vol basketball. Warlick was the first player in the history of Tennessee athletics (men or women) to have her jersey retired (number 22) at the end of her career in 1980.

EIGHT- T IM E NAT IONAL CHAMPION S


ASSOCIATE HEAD COACH Known as a play-making wiz during her four years as UT’s point guard, Warlick was once tabbed the “best player in the South.” She has had no trouble adjusting her enthusiasm and knowledge of the game into the coaching role. As a rookie, Warlick helped lead the Lady Vols to their first Final Four appearance in school history in 1977. In 19 of the 29 years Warlick has been affiliated with UT, she has found herself at the Final Four as a player (1977, 1979, 1980) and as a coach (1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1991, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2008). Her best Final Four showing as a player was national championship runner-up in her senior season. As a coach, she has helped the Lady Vols grab the brass ring all eight times (1987, 1989, 1991, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2007 and 2008). A three-time All-American while playing for Summitt from 1976-80, Warlick previously held UT records for most assists in a game (14), most steals in a game (nine), most assists in a season (225) and most games in a career (141). Warlick brings vast international experience to the Lady Vols as well. A member of the 1980 U.S. Olympic basketball team, Warlick also participated in the Jones Cup, Pan American Games and World Championship competition. In addition, she was a WPBL All-Star as she led the Nebraska Wranglers to the championship of the Women’s Professional Basketball League in 1981. She has served as a player representative on the USA BASKETBALL council and was a member of the USOC Advisory Council for Basketball. In recognition of being a former Olympian, Warlick earned the distinct honor of running the Olympic torch through Knoxville as it made its way to the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Ga. Tennessee is not Warlick’s first stop on the coaching circuit. She was an assistant coach at Virginia Tech from 1981-83 and an assistant from 1983-85 at Nebraska. A native of Knoxville, Warlick earned her B.S. in marketing from Tennessee in 1981 and her master’s degree in athletic administration from Virginia Tech in 1983. Warlick added “biker” to her vitae in 2001. To commemorate her induction into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, a number of Warlick’s friends got together and presented her with a Harley-Davidson “Sportster” motorcycle. Just six years later, Warlick was already using her love of the bike towards a greater cause, establishing Champions For A Cause Foundation with Caldwell.

Seventh Season with Lady Vols 12th Season at Tennessee Dean Lockwood became just the ninth assistant coach ever to serve under Head Basketball Coach Pat Summitt at the University of Tennessee when he was named to the staff on July 2, 2004. Lockwood is instrumental in all aspects of the Lady Vol basketball program, but his primary responsibilities include player development, recruiting and scouting. The 2004-05 season was his first in Knoxville since serving as an assistant coach with the Tennessee men’s program from 1986-91. Since his return to Rocky Top, the Lady Vols have compiled a record of 185-29 for an impressive .864 winning percentage, captured four SEC Tournament crowns and two SEC regular-season championships, appeared in three Final Fours and won back-to-back national championships (2007-08). Lockwood held the position of men’s head coach at Saginaw Valley State University (Michigan) from 1998-2004. The Bay City, Mich., native returned to the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference after serving a year as assistant coach at Central Michigan University. On October 19, 2008, Lockwood was inducted into the Bay County (Mich.) Sports Hall of Fame for his career accomplishments. He was also inducted into the Spring Arbor (Mich.) University Athletic Hall of Fame on Oct. 8, 2010. Prior to his CMU stint, Lockwood held the men’s head coaching position at Northwood University (Michigan) from 1991-97. While there, he led the team to its first back-to-back winning seasons in 15 years. After posting an 18-9 record and a secondplace finish in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference North Division during the 1996-97 campaign, Lockwood was honored as the GLIAC Coach of the Year. In 1991-92, Lockwood directed the Northwood program in its transition from NAIA to NCAA Division II. Additionally, in his capacity as a head coach at two different small-budget GLIAC programs from 1991-2004, he not only was successful in guiding both institutions into postseason play (one of only a handful of coaches to guide two schools in the GLIAC to post-season play), but he maintained a graduation rate of 80 percent during his tenure at both Saginaw Valley State and Norwood University. From 1986-1991, Lockwood served as an

assistant for the University of Tennessee men’s basketball team under head coach Don DeVoe and later Wade Houston. During his tenure as an assistant, Volunteer teams went 77-75, posting three consecutive winning seasons, made a pair of National Invitational Tournament trips and earned an NCAA Tournament bid in 1989 after an 18-9 regular season. In addition to his assistant coaching duties at Tennessee, Lockwood also served as a special assistant to the director of alumni programs from 1989-91.

After seven years away from Tennessee, Mickie DeMoss returned to the university and the women’s basketball program she called home for 18 seasons as an assistant coach. DeMoss and current Associate Head Coach Holly Warlick both joined the Lady Vols’ coaching staff prior to the 1985-86 season. For the next 18 years, the coaching trio of Summitt, DeMoss and Warlick posted six NCAA Championship titles (1987, 1989, 1991, 1996, 1997 and 1998) while advancing to 12 NCAA Final Fours. During that span, the Lady Vols had a 554-77 overall record (.878). In 2000, DeMoss was promoted to associate head coach at Tennessee. DeMoss, who just finished her 33rd season on the sidelines as a women’s basketball coach, left the Lady Vols after the 2002-03 season to take the head coaching job at Kentucky. In four seasons, she guided the Wildcats to a 71-56 record including consecutive 20-win seasons (for the first time in 16 years) and three postseason appearances (one NCAA and two WNIT) for the first time in school history. In 2005-06, DeMoss was named the SEC Coach of the Year, a first for a UK coach, as she guided

the 22-9 Wildcats to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in seven seasons and punctuated the trip with an NCAA win. The breakout year also included a victory over No. 1-ranked Tennessee, 66-63, in front of a school-record crowd of 13,689 at Rupp Arena. It marked the first win over a top-ranked team in UK history. In 2006-07, Kentucky was 20-14 and advanced to the WNIT. That season, DeMoss’ Cats attracted a school record attendance of 5,863 fans per game. She elected to step aside as head coach at Kentucky in April 2007. Her coaching hiatus ended when she accepted an assistant coaching position at the University of Texas in the summer of 2007. She was the Longhorns’ top recruiter while also coaching the post game. During her first stint at Tennessee, DeMoss developed a reputation as the top assistant in the women’s game. A survey of the nation’s NCAA Division I women’s head basketball coaches tabbed her the top assistant in the country in 2000. She also garnered that same distinction from a 1998 The Women’s Basketball Journal poll. While on Rocky Top, DeMoss was considered

ASSISTANT COACH a great technical mind, floor coach and entertainer. Off the court, she was regarded as one of the best recruiters in the college game, year after year recruiting future All-SEC and All-America award-winners, while stockpiling rosters with the kind of players essential to winning national championships. Some of DeMoss’ most notable recruits at Tennessee include: Tonya Edwards, the 1987 Final Four MVP, Dena Head, the 1992 SEC Player of the Year, Chamique Holdsclaw, the 1996 and 1997 Final Four MVP, and Tamika Catchings, a four-time All-American. Noted for her success coaching post players, DeMoss protégés have represented Team USA in every Olympic Games since 1992. That year, three DeMoss-coached centers helped lead the U.S. to a bronze medal in Barcelona, Spain. Daedra Charles, who DeMoss shaped into a Wade Trophy winner in 1991 at UT, Tammy Jackson, who played for DeMoss during her first head coaching stint at Florida, and Vickie Orr, who she recruited to come to Auburn while an assistant coach there, each saw significant time in the post on the U.S. roster. The trio combined to average over 20 points per game. In 1996, former Lady Vol Carla McGhee helped lead the United States to the gold medal in Atlanta, Ga., while Holdsclaw represented the Red, White and Blue at the 2000 Sydney Games, but was sidelined for the tournament with a stress fracture. The latest DeMoss pupil to have success on the international level, the versatile Catchings, captured gold medals for Team USA at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece, and the 2008 Games in Beijing, China. Prior to joining the Tennessee staff in 1985, DeMoss had been an assistant coach at Auburn University (1983-85), a head coach at the University of Florida (1979-83) and an assistant at Memphis State (1977-79). DeMoss received her undergraduate degree in physical education from Louisiana Tech University in 1977, where she starred at point guard. She then received her master’s degree in education at Memphis State University in 1979. She is a native of Tallulah, La.

Arizona State: The Sun Devils will make their first ever trip to Knoxville on Nov. 21, the return game for when the Lady Vols traveled to Tempe on Nov. 19, 2006. The Lady Vols hold a 56-14 all-time mark against Pac-10 teams. vs. Missouri (at Paradise Jam): In April of 2010, the Tigers named Robin Pingeton their new head coach, which allowed for former Lady Vol assistant Stephanie Glance to become the head coach at Illinois State. vs. Georgia Tech (at Paradise Jam): The Lady Vols boast a 3-0 record against the Yellow Jackets, but all three matchups came in the late 1980s. In fact, in two of the previous three years that UT and Georgia Tech have squared off, the Lady Vols have gone on to claim the national title at the end of the season, in 1987 and 1989. vs. Georgetown (at Paradise Jam): The matchup with the Hoyas and Lady Vols in the Virgin Islands will be the first ever meeting between the two schools. Georgetown will be the 181st different team to face UT and the 13th current BIG EAST member to challenge the Lady Vols. Lamar: The Lamar Lady Cardinals will be the second straight opponent for Tennessee to face a first time and will be the 182nd different team to play UT. at Old Dominion: The Lady Vols sport a 34-9 all-time record against Old Dominion and have won 14 straight contests, dating back to Jan. 7, 1997. at Texas: Returning to the Lady Vol sideline in 2010-11 will be Mickie DeMoss who spent 18 seasons before leaving for seven seasons, the last three of which were at Texas.

East Tennessee State: The Buccaneers will make the short drive from Johnson City to Knoxville for the first time since Jan. 8, 1986. The Lady Vols own a 17-2-1 record all time against ETSU. Pos. F/G G F G F F G G F G G F

Chattanooga: The Lady Vols own a 23-6 all-time record against the Lady Mocs, including victories in the last 17 contests.

at Baylor: The Lady Vols and Lady Bears squared off twice in the 2009-10 campaign. In the season opener for both sides at Thompson-Boling Arena, the Lady Vols held freshman Brittney Griner in check, limiting her to 15 points, four rebounds and four blocks. In the Memphis Regional Semifinals, the UT inside game of Kelley Cain and Alyssia Brewer wasn’t as successful as Griner tossed in 27 points, blocked 10 shots and grabbed seven boards sending the Lady Vols home for the offseason.

Rutgers: The Lady Vols own a 16-3 all-time mark against the Scarlet Knights and have won the last six outings. South Carolina: The Lady Vols opened the 2010 SEC slate with a home contest against the Gamecocks, but Mother Nature did her best to limit the home court advantage of Thompson-Boling Arena. A severe snowstorm hampered the ability of UT fans to make the trip to campus and only 1,462 fans were actually in attendance, narrowly missing the TBA low record of 1,461 that was set in 1991. Mississippi State: The Lady Bulldogs are the only team in the SEC to have never claimed a win over the Lady Vols. UT is 31-0 all-time versus MSU. Vanderbilt: The Commodores were one of two teams the Lady Vols faced three times last season. With a sweep of VU, Tennessee improved to 56-7 all-time against the in-state rival. Georgia: In 2009, the unranked Lady Bulldogs were on the wrong end of a 73-43 win that gave Coach Summitt her 1,000th career victory. So when the third-ranked Lady Vols traveled to Athens to face the eighth-ranked UGA side, revenge was surely on their mind. The game saw 10 ties and 16 lead changes and as he has more than any other coach against UT, Andy Landers’ squad came away with a 53-50 victory. LSU: When the Lady Tigers traveled to Knoxville in 2009-10, sophomore Kelley Cain set a new school record of 12 blocks. Cain’s performance was the second best in SEC history. Auburn: In two tough losses to Auburn in 2009, the Lady Vols combined to make only 9-of-36 three-point attempts, a measly 25 percent conversion rate. When the Tigers came to Knoxville in 2010, it was a completely different story as UT tied a school record with 13 three pointers, making 13-of-23 or a scorching 56.5 percent. Arkansas: With a 74-57 win over the Razorbacks in Knoxville in 2010, the Lady Vols reached the 20-win plateau for the 34th consecutive year and tied the seventh fastest Summitt team to reach the mark. Ole Miss: In the 2009-10 season’s first matchup in Oxford, junior Angie Bjorklund converted a contested trey with three seconds to play to give UT a 61-58 win. It marked the second straight game against Ole Miss that she beat the Rebels with a last second three. Florida: A Bjorklund reverse layup with 2.3 seconds left gave the Lady Vols a 66-64 win in Gainesville in 2009-10. In round two, the Lady Vols dominated the second half, outscoring the Gators 49-16, en route to an 83-44 win in Knoxville.

Alabama: Tennessee won, 74-67, in Tuscaloosa, allowing UT to extend its winning streak against Alabama to 36 games and improve to 43-2 all-time against the Crimson Tide. Kentucky: The Lady Vols claimed a pair of wins over the Wildcats in 2010, with each contest carrying SEC title implications. Kentucky traveled south on I-75 for the second to last regular season contest and the Lady Vols earned an 81-65 victory, clinching the 2010 SEC regular season title, the 15th in UT history. Ten days later, the two sides squared off in the SEC Tournament Championship Game in Duluth, Ga. Tennessee again asserted itself as the better side, posting a 68-49 victory and claiming the program’s 14th SEC Tournament crown.

SEASON IN REVIEW

2009-10: CIRCLE OF INFLUENCE THE SEASON

When the dust settled on the 2009-10 season, the University of Tennessee Lady Volunteer basketball team fell just a little short of its goal to come full circle and travel deep into postseason play in the NCAA Tournament. However, the strides the squad made in producing a 32-3 overall record and the double-dip of capturing both the regular season Southeastern Conference crown and the coveted SEC Tournament title, clearly indicated that their “Circle of Influence” had indeed taken effect with this group. After struggling through the forgettable 2008-09 campaign with a 22-11 record and the first-ever UT bounce out in game one of the NCAA Tournament, the 2010 team was focused and rededicated to the “Tennessee Way” of doing its basketball business. For the first time in the 36-year tenure of coach Pat Summitt (1,037-196 overall), the Lady Vols took to the court with nary a senior among the 13 players on the roster. Because of that fact, Summitt’s expectation was for each player to rise to the top of her leadership abilities either by word or action … but ideally both. Much to the pleasure of the Lady Vol skipper, leaders emerged throughout the 10-active player ranks and from every class. Tennessee opened the season ripping through the first nine opponents, including three ranked teams in No. 7/4-ranked Baylor (74-65), No. 12/17-ranked Virginia (77-63) and No. 17-ranked Texas (78-58), by an average victory margin of 22 points. Sandwiched in between were victories over Texas Tech (91-53) in San Antonio, Texas, at Middle Tennessee (69-52), UCLA (61-47), George Washington (93-53), versus Rutgers (68-54) in Madison Square Garden in New York City and Louisville (86-56). Bolstered by a 9-0 record and a solid start to the season, the third-ranked Lady Vols then headed to No. 2-ranked Stanford, hoping to break the Cardinal’s 34game home court winning streak. The Big Orange held the upper hand for the first dozen minutes of the game before the wheels fell off.

Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain scored (10.5 ppg) and grabbed boards (7.7 rpg) at a superb rate in 2009-10, but she was most known for swatting shots, recording a single-season record 113.

UT managed just 18 points on 21 percent shooting in the opening stanza to fall behind by 12 at the break. The Lady Vols whittled the margin to eight points in the second half, but Stanford was too strong and claimed the convincing 67-52 victory. After the loss, the team regrouped and focused on finishing out the non-conference portion of the schedule before heading into Southeastern Conference play. UT looked dominant, as San Francisco (89-34), Old Dominion (102-62) and No. 14/15-ranked Oklahoma (9675) all fell by the wayside. During this stretch of games, the Lady Vols were statistically amazing, outscoring the opposition by 38.7 ppg (95.7-57.0), holding a plus-16 advantage in rebounding while knocking in 57 percent of all field goals (including treys). In the 21-point win over Oklahoma, UT sophomore Shekinna Stricklen put on quite a show for the home folks, turning in just the second triple-double in Lady Vol history with a 17-point, 13-rebound and 12-assist explosion against the Sooners. Just as Tennessee was gearing up for SEC play, it was determined that junior post Vicki Baugh would indeed redshirt the 2009-10 season. Baugh, who had faced two anterior cruciate ligament tears in her left knee and subsequent surgery 10 months apart, was under the knife again, as a partial medial meniscectomy was performed just as the New Year started. It was a blow to the team after 6-0 sophomore forward Amber Gray was already out of action for the season following brain surgery, and 6-3 freshman center Faith Dupree was shelved with back problems. Nevertheless, Tennessee entered SEC action with a 12-1 overall record and redemption on their minds. During the 2008-09 nightmarish season, Tennessee managed a program-worst 9-5 mark in the conference and a dismal 2-5 slate on the road in the SEC. The ambitious 2010 team goal was to win the SEC Championship. But once again, this was a league of no weak sisters. Tennessee easily dispatched South Carolina (7962) and Mississippi State (75-48) before running into a defiant Florida squad in Gainesville. The Gators had an eight-point lead with seven minutes to play before the UT team attempting to come full circle got going down the stretch. In the end, sophomore Glory Johnson rifled a pass to junior guard Angie Bjorklund who connected on a reverse lay-up with 2.3 ticks left for the dramatic Tennessee victory, 66-64. The Lady Vols had lived on the edge in 2009 and for the team to be more successful a year later, that behavior could not afford to be duplicated in the next three games against ranked teams. Vanderbilt rolled into town ranked 22nd and was looking for its first-ever win in Knoxville. The Commodores wouldn’t get it this time, losing 64-57 in a tightly contested game in front of the largest season crowd at ThompsonBoling Arena, 16,645. Four days later, UT was on the road in Athens, Ga., taking on number eight-ranked Georgia. The contest was tight from opening tip to final horn, as the game was tied 10 times including 30-all at the half. Tennessee held a slight one-point lead when 6-6 sophomore Kelley Cain fouled out with 4:13 to go after being whistled for her fourth foul and then a subsequent technical and fifth foul on the same call. The Lady Vols fought gamely without their big pivot and led 50-49 with 1:07 to go but couldn’t close out the game and lost 5350. It marked the first time that Tennessee had lost to Georgia in a regular season game in 10 years. That loss did not bode well, as the team, now 16-2 overall and 4-1 in the SEC, headed into Baton Rouge to face No. 18/19-ranked Louisiana State. Despite coughing

Junior Angie Bjorklund rose up over the outstretched arms of opposing defenders 239 times for threepoint attempts in 2009-10. She made 102, the second-best single season total in UT history.

up the ball 23 times, Tennessee returned to Knoxville with a 55-43 “ugly” win after LSU only connected on 14 of its 53 shots. Despite being a not so pretty “W”, that victory kicked off a 16-game winning streak for the Lady Vols. UT closed out January 2010 with a win over Auburn at home, 85-56, and a narrow 60-55 triumph over South Carolina on the road for the second win of the season over the Gamecocks. Tennessee headed into the final month of the regular season with a 19-2 overall record and the team was redeeming ’09 losses left and right. The previous season, the Lady Vols struggled to pick up the 20th win of the campaign in the final regular season game on March 1, 2009. Obviously, this team had learned some valuable lessons from that painful experience and recorded the 20th victory of the 2010 season on Feb. 4 against Arkansas, 74-57. The luck of the draw had UT on the road for just three games in February – wins at No. 22-ranked Vanderbilt (69-60) on Feb. 8, at Ole Miss (61-58) on Feb. 11 and at Alabama (74-67) on Feb. 18. The rest of the month featured a friendly home slate as UT dispatched No. 16/14-ranked Kentucky (81-65) and for the second time on the season -- Florida (83-44), No. 20-ranked LSU (7061) and Ole Miss (75-63) -- in front of folks in the friendly confines of Thompson-Boling Arena. Oddly, the final regular season home game didn’t feature a typical Senior Night format as there were no outgoing players to salute. The team hoping to make a full circle run had finished the 2009-10 regular season with an impressive 27-2 record but there was more work to be done even as the Lady Vols had clinched the program’s 15th regular season SEC Championship with a 15-1 record In the new 16-game conference format. A sea of orange-clad fans greeted the team at the SEC Tournament in Duluth, Ga. A year before, the Lady Vols had been forced to play on opening day with their 9-5 record and fifth seeding. It seemed to be on the players’ minds, as Ole Miss (76-51) in the Second Round and Vanderbilt (68-49) in the Semifinals both took defeat from Tennessee for a third time in 2010. Those victories set the stage for an SEC Tournament title showdown

EIGHT- T IM E NAT IONAL CHAMPION S


SEASON IN REVIEW versus upstart and No. 19/18-ranked Kentucky. In a physical contest, the Lady Vols grabbed a 70-62 win and the program’s 14th SEC Tournament Championship. It marked the first time since 1999-2000 that a Tennessee team had claimed the “daring double” of capturing both the regular season and tournament titles. UT ventured into postseason play with an automatic NCAA bid, a 30-2 overall record and the program’s record 20th No. 1 seed in the Big Dance. Tennessee, the only school to appear in all 29 NCAA Tournaments, didn’t have far to travel when the pairings were announced with UT landing in the Memphis Regional and playing in Knoxville’s Thompson-Boling Arena for First/Second Round games. Over 10,000 fans watched the third-ranked Lady Vols take out Austin Peay, 75-42, in First Round action and then thwart the hopes of upstart Dayton, 92-64, in Second Round play. Those victories set the stage for a trip to the Sweet 16 in Memphis, Tenn. The Lady Vols drew No. 14/18-ranked Baylor, a team they had beaten to open the season in Knoxville. This time the Lady Bears started out fast by grabbing a fivepoint lead before UT righted the ship to take an eightpoint advantage. At the half, Baylor led Tennessee by a deuce, 30-28, and controlled the paint, outscoring UT by a huge 20-4 margin. The Lady Vols stormed back in the second half and appeared to have the game under control with a five-point advantage, 55-50, with just less than eight minutes to play. However, the bottom fell out over the next seven minute stretch as UT managed just four points while Baylor jumped out to a 16-point lead with under a minute left. The Lady Vol hopes were dashed by an embarrassing 15-point loss to the Lady Bears, 77-62. Despite the outcome of the final game, the 200910 squad used their Circle of Influence and individual accountability to get the team firmly back on the winning track of Tennessee basketball.

grabbed a record 20th No. 1 seeding as the only team to appear in all 29 tournaments… Two wins in the First/Second Round games in Knoxville extended UT’s home winning streak to 19 games (entering the 2010-11 season) and produced the Lady Vols’ ninth all-time undefeated season in Thompson-Boling Arena and the 12th overall.

THE PLAYERS

Junior shooting guard Angie Bjorklund (13.9 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 2.9 apg) was the Lady Vols’ most experienced returner and led the team in scoring while knocking down an amazing 42.7 percent of her three-pointers (102-239). Bjorklund was part field general, mother hen and scoring machine en route to her best start-to- finish season in the Orange and White. While Bjorklund paced the team as the leading scorer in 11 games, she received adequate help in the heavy lifting department from sophomore guard/forward Shekinna Stricklen (12.7 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 3.6 apg). Stricklen, who was the 2009 USBWA Rookie of the Year, avoided the sophomore slump by turning in some big-time performances for the Lady Vols starting with a 25-point and 14-rebound outing in the season opening victory over #7/4-ranked Baylor, 74-65, in Knoxville. Stricklen mirrored her rookie campaign by starting all 35 games for UT, the only player to do so over the last two seasons. A healthy Kelley Cain made a huge difference in the paint for UT in 2009-10. She was third in scoring with 10.5 ppg and tied Glory Johnson for team high rebounding honors with 7.7 rpg. Cain’s 60.7 percent field goal accuracy and her ability to block 3.4 shots per game and alter many more made her a formidable presence. Perhaps the player who transformed the most from her rookie season to her sophomore campaign was Alyssia Brewer. The 6’3” lefty not only improved in every statistical category but weighed in as the fourth-leading scorer at 10.2 ppg while playing in 34 games and starting 13. She capped her turnaround season with MVP honors at the SEC Tournament. Fellow soph Glory Johnson was UT’s fifth double-digit scorer in 2010 with 10.1 ppg and 7.7 rpg. After a strong rookie campaign, she drew the opponent’s best defender most nights. As a result, she became a better defender in the process and led the team with 45 steals. A newcomer who took advantage of Summitt’s call to leadership was 6-1 freshman Taber Spani (5.8 ppg, 2.7 rpg) who joined Bjorklund and Stricklen in the starting lineup on opening day. The versatile lefty became just the 13th all-time Lady Vol rookie to get the starting nod in her very first game on The Hill. Spani made the most of her opportunity in just her second game, a 91-53 victory over Texas Tech in San Antonio, when she tossed in 18 points to lead the team. Hard-nosed Alicia Manning turned in 5.4 ppg and added 5.1 rpg in a season where she earned 14 starting assignments in 35 games. Down the stretch, she was one of UT’s best defenders. Rookie guard Kamiko Williams showed flashes of brilliance in her first season with the Lady Vols. A break out game at South Carolina where she turned in a strong floor game to go along with 17 points indicated she has the potential to make an impact. On the season, she turned in 4.0 ppg, 1.9 rpg and 1.6 apg in 34 games while starting twice. Junior Sydney Smallbone came off the bench to contribute 2.3 ppg in 25 games while earning three starts. Sophomore point guard Briana Bass contributed 1.2 ppg and 1.0 apg in 32 games with one starting assignment. She tossed in a season high 11 points on three treys while logging 32 minutes against Old Dominion on Dec. 30, 2009. Eager to join their teammates on the court were three players who could have shored up the ranks had they been available. Unfortunately, all three were dealing with medical issues, including 6-4 junior post Vicki Baugh (coming back from two ACL surgeries), 6-1 sophomore forward Amber Gray (brain surgery to correct an aneurysm) and 6-3 rookie pivot Faith Dupree (back problems).

Sophomore Alyssia Brewer came off the bench in 21 of 35 games she played in for the Lady Vols in 2009-10, averaging 10.2 ppg and 5.9 rpg. For her efforts, she was named the SEC’s Sixth Woman of the Year by the league’s coaches.

GAME 1: #7/4 BAYLOR The Tennessee Lady Vols officially opened the 2009-10 season against the No. 7/4-ranked Baylor Bears, and as in 33 other season openers under Head Coach Pat Summitt, the Lady Vols came away with a win, 74-65. Leading the way for Tennessee was sophomore Shekinna Stricklen, who played all 40 minutes on her way to her third career double double. The Morrilton, Ark., native scored 25 points - one off her career high - and grabbed 14 rebounds, establishing a new career best. Stricklen also dished out five assists and grabbed three steals on her way to Player of the Game honors. The Lady Vols got off to a quick start, building a 10-3 lead nearly four minutes into the contest. However, the Lady Vols shooting would go cold as the Lady Bears took a 26-24 lead into the lockerroom. While UT mustered only 28.9 percent from the field in the first 20 minutes, the Lady Vol defense limited Baylor to only 29.2 percent shooting. The second half belonged to Tennessee, as the Lady Vols outscored Baylor 50-39 in the final stanza. In addition to Stricklen, center Kelley Cain posted 13 of her 15 points in the second half. The Lady Vols used a 16-0 run from the 1:02 mark of the first half to the 16:16 point of the second half to transform a six-point deficit (20-26) into a 10-point lead (36-26). Junior Angie Bjorklund was the third Lady Vol to finish with double figures, as she posted 13 points. Her three threepointers moved the Spokane Valley, Wash., native into a tie for fifth all-time with Sidney Spencer in the Tennessee record books with 133 career triples made. Sophomore Glory Johnson was the only Lady Vol to finish with more than four points. The Knoxville native tallied nine points to go with seven rebounds and four steals in 33 minutes of action.

GAME 2: TEXAS TECH The Tennessee Lady Vols made their first road trip of the season and handed the Texas Tech Lady Raiders a 91-53 loss at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas. The two sides squared off as part of the ESPNU “Road to the Championship.” The 2010 NCAA Final Four will be held at the Alamodome in San Antonio. The Lady Raiders grabbed the early lead, going up 6-2 just over four minutes into the contest. The Lady Vols would respond in a big way. Tennessee went on a 24-2 tear over 10:55 to build a 26-8 lead with just under five minutes to play before the halftime horn. Leading the way for UT in the first stanza were sophomores Shekinna Stricklen and Glory Johnson, who each tallied nine first-half points and five rebounds. Johnson finished the contest with 17 points and six boards, while Stricklen tossed in 16 points, pulled down seven boards and dished out five assists. Tennessee was not about to let up in the second half and opened the second period on a 32-4 run over the first six minutes of the half. Junior Angie Bjorklund keyed the run with nine points on three three-pointers over a mere 25 seconds, giving UT a 51-21 lead with 15:56 to play. For the game, the Lady Vol offense was not dependent solely on Johnson and Stricklen. Bjorklund finished with 14 points - all of which came in the second half - to go with four boards and two assists. Leading the way for the Lady Vols with a game-high 18 points was freshman Taber Spani, 14 of which came in the second half. After shooting just 1-of-3 in the first half, the rookie was 4-of-6 in the final 20 minutes and also pulled down six boards. Sophomore Alicia Manning started her first game of the season, and tallied eight points and a game-high nine rebounds. Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain grabbed eight boards and added seven points, while freshman Faith Dupree finished with six boards, five points and three assists in 18 minutes.

Angie Bjorklund was on fire against Virginia in the season’s third game, draining five three pointers en route to a game-high 24 points.

GAME 4: MIDDLE TENNESSEE STATE For the first time in 30 years, the Tennessee Lady Vols traveled to Murfreesboro to face the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders. Sophomore Glory Johnson led the Lady Vols to a 69-52 victory with a career high 21 points and 12 rebounds. It was the Knoxville native’s sixth career double double and her second career 20-plus point performance (she scored 20 points on Feb. 5 last season in a 73-43 win over Georgia). Tennessee grabbed a 2-0 lead on an Angie Bjorklund jumper. MTSU responded with a Chelsia Lymon threepointer. Lady Vol rookie Taber Spani converted a layup at the 18:50 mark of the first half and UT would not relinquish the lead the rest of the game. The Lady Vols used an 8-0 run to build a 30-20 lead with 3:58 and held the Blue Raiders to only two field goals in the last 7:18 of the first stanza as Tennessee finished the first 20 minutes on a 13-4 run and went into the lockerroom with a 35-24 lead. Middle Tennessee got to within 10 of the Lady Vol lead, 41-31, with 15:50 remaining on a Lymon three-pointer. Tennessee responded with a three pointer of its own by Spani off an assist from Bjorklund. In addition to Johnson, Bjorklund and sophomore Shekinna Stricklen each tallied double figures. Bjorklund tossed in 16 points, while dishing out five assists and grabbing three steals. Stricklen finished with 12 points, four assists and three rebounds. Helping clean up on the glass was redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain, who pulled down 11 rebounds and pitched in six points. The Murphy Center on the MTSU campus saw its first ever sellout for a women’s game, drawing a standing room only crowd of 11,802, just five spectators shy of the Murphy Center record of 11,807 for any game there.

GAME 5: UCLA The UCLA Bruins made the trek to Knoxville for the first time since Nov. 16, 2006, but the Bruin coaching staff was very familiar with Thompson-Boling Arena and the Lady Vols. The Bruins are led by former Lady Vol and assistant coach Nikki Caldwell. She is assisted by former Lady Vol Tasha Butts and a former Lady Vol practice player, Tony Perotti. Unfortunately for the Bruins, the outcome was the same as it has been the previous six times UT Head Coach Pat Summitt faced off against a former player, the Lady Vols came away victorious, 61-47. The Bruins started off hot and led the entire first half after shooting 42.9 percent in the first stanza. The UCLA defense limited the Tennessee offense to just 9-of-31 shooting, 29 percent, in the first half. Freshman Taber Spani scored eight of UT’s final 11 points, including the last five straight. The Lee’s Summit, Mo., native tied the game at 25 apiece on a pair of free throws with 30 seconds left before the halftime horn. A late Bruin field goal gave UCLA a 27-25 lead at the break. UT held UCLA without a field goal from the 4:56 mark of the first half to just four seconds remaining, going on an 11-1 run to tie the game at 25. The Lady Vols would continue that run, extending it to 18-3 and a 32-27 lead nearly five minutes into the second half. Spani finished with a team-high 16 points for the second time this season and added six rebounds. Junior Angie Bjorklund tallied 12 points, all of which came in the second half, and tied Shannon Bobbitt for fourth with 147 career three pointers. Sophomore Glory Johnson tallied 11 points and seven rebounds, while classmate Kelley Cain tied her season and career high with 11 boards and pitched in eight points. Sophomore Shekinna Stricklen continued to be a jack-of-all-trades, finishing with eight boards, six points and three assists. The Lady Vols won the battle of the boards for the fifth time in as many games this season, 49-35.

GAME 3: #12/17 VIRGINIA Junior Angie Bjorklund was feeling it on Sunday afternoon at John Paul Jones Arena against #12/17 Virginia in Charlottesville, Va. Monica Wright, the Cavaliers preseason All-American, said so. “She tore it up tonight. She was just so hot,” said Wright. Bjorklund finished with a game-high 24 points, including five three pointers in leading the #6/5 Lady Vols to a 77-63 win in a hostile JPJ Arena on Nov. 22. It was the Spokane Valley, Wash., native’s 34th career double digit scoring game and the seventh outing in her time at Rocky Top that she has scored at least 20 in a game. Bjorklund’s shooting from beyond the arc was instrumental for the Lady Vols. Midway through the first half, she scored six points in 21 seconds to give UT a 32-19 lead. Not even two minutes into the second half, the Cavaliers had cut the Tennessee lead to 42-39, when Bjorklund converted a fourpoint play which silenced the record-crowd of 11,895. On the next play at the defensive end, she grabbed the rebound, came down the floor and found freshman Taber Spani for a threepointer to put UT up 49-39. A trio of Tennessee sophomores also had a big impact on the win. Knoxville native Glory Johnson scored 14 points and grabbed six rebounds. In addition, Johnson was charged with defending Wright, who scored 35 against UT a year ago, but was held to 21 this time around. Shekinna Stricklen scored 20 points - her sixth career 20-point plus performance - grabbed eight rebounds and dished out a season-high six assists. Center Kelley Cain was limited to only six points, but her inside presence opened the perimeter up for the Lady Vol guards. Cain added six rebounds and six blocks, one off her career high and tied for third best in a single game for Tennessee. The Lady Vols owned the rebounding edge, 46-42, for the third time in as many games this season. UT’s 40 first half points were its most in the first 20 minutes this season.

GAME 6: George Washington The Tennessee Lady Vols entered their Dec. 1 match-up with George Washington with only nine available players, as redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain did not play after suffering a concussion against UCLA. The nine available made the most of their opportunity and all played at least 18 minutes en route to a 93-53 win over the Colonials. Sophomore Alyssia Brewer made the most of her season high 22 minutes, as she tallied a career-high 23 points on 11of-15 shooting and grabbed a season-best seven rebounds. The Lady Vols didn’t start the way Head Coach Pat Summitt would like, trailing 10-9 nearly five minutes into the game. From that point, UT used an 11-2 run over 2:53 to build a 20-12 lead. Over the final 6:54 of the first half, the Lady Vols only surrendered a pair of GW free throws on their way to a 16-2 run and took a 54-24 lead into the break. By the half, sophomore Glory Johnson had notched her seventh career double double. The Knoxville native finished with 16 points and 12 rebounds. Classmate Shekinna Stricklen recorded her fourth career double double with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Tennessee dominated the paint, outscoring GW 34-4 in the first half and 54-12 in the paint for the game. The Lady Vols also owned the rebounding advantage, 4940, for the sixth time in as many games this season. Junior Angie Bjorklund notched her 150th career three pointer and took sole possession of fourth place in the UT record books. Sophomore Alicia Manning finished with career highs of six assists and four steals, to go with five points and five rebounds in a season-high 30 minutes of action. Bjorklund, junior Sydney Smallbone and freshman Taber Spani all finished with nine points, in addition to the three Lady Vols who tallied double figures.

GAME 7: #17/17 Texas The Tennessee Lady Vols and a crowd of 13,434 welcomed the #17/17 Texas Longhorns to ThompsonBoling Arena for an ESPN2 national TV match-up on Dec. 6. Four Lady Vols finished in double figures and Tennessee converted at a 52.5 percent clip for the night as the Lady Vols cruised to a 78-58 win over the Longhorns. Earning Lady Vol Player of the Game honors was sophomore Shekinna Stricklen, who tallied 14 points, six rebounds and a game-high five assists in 28 minutes. Tennessee totaled a season high 23 helpers on 32 field goals made against Texas. After falling behind 5-3 early on, the Lady Vols put together an 8-0 run to claim an 11-5 lead just five minutes into the contest. Tennessee tore off runs of 12 straight, to take a 3118 lead with 5:29 left in the first half, and 14 straight, holding the Longhorns scoreless from the 3:12 mark of the first half to the 16:29 point of the second half and doubling up Texas 48-24. Junior Angie Bjorklund scored a team high 15 points to go with four assists and three rebounds. Sophomore Glory Johnson pitched in 14 points, five boards, two assists and a block. Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain did not start the contest, but finished with 12 points on a perfect 6-of6 shooting effort, six rebounds and four blocks in only 17 minutes of action. Sophomore Alyssia Brewer made her first career start and finished with seven rebounds and four points in 18 minutes. Classmate Alicia Manning tallied eight points, four assists and three rebounds in 16 minutes off the bench.

GAME 9: LOUISVILLE Prior to the game, Head Coach Pat Summitt addressed the crowd of 11,084 and let them know that, for the first time since 2004-05, each individual would have their name on the back of their jersey, telling the fans “Merry Christmas”. Her team would return the present to coach Summitt, as it downed the Louisville Cardinals, 86-56, as UofL became the 180th team all-time to face UT and the 12th current BIG EAST squad to square off against the Lady Vols. Entering the game, the Cardinals had averaged 74.3 points per game but were limited to 56 and 31.7 percent shooting. Tennessee jumped off to a scorching hot start, building a 23-3 lead with 13:30 to play in the first half, including a stretch where UT went on an 18-0 run. However, the Cardinals would not give up and cut the Big Orange lead to seven (31-24) with 5:04 remaining before the first half horn sounded. The Tennessee defense stepped up and allowed only two Louisville field goals the rest of the half and went into the locker room with a 43-29 lead. It was the seventh time UT had led after the first 20 minutes, but the first time that the Lady Vols had not trailed in the opening stanza this season. The second half provided much of the same as Tennessee extended its lead, reaching a 31-point margin (86-55) with 2:50 to play. Sophomore Alyssia Brewer paced the Lady Vols with her third career double-double, posting 12 points and 10 rebounds. Junior Angie Bjorklund scored a team-high 19 points and sophomore Shekinna Stricklen tossed in 15, pulled down eight rebounds and dished out six assists. Sophomore Glory Johnson hauled in double digit rebounds for the 10th time in her career, grabbing 10 caroms, to go with seven points. Tennessee tied the mark for second most blocks in a single game in school history with 12 and grabbed a season-best 54 rebounds to Louisville’s 37. The Lady Vols have held an advantage on the boards in all nine contests this season.

GAME 10: #2/2 STANFORD The Tennessee Lady Vols suffered their first defeat, 67-52, of the 2009-10 season when they squared against the No. 2/2-ranked Stanford Cardinal on Dec. 19 at Maples Pavilion. The Lady Vol defense limited the Cardinal to only four points over the first 7:05 of the contest and Tennessee owned an 11-4 lead, but the UT shooting would go cold from there. Tennessee went into the lockerroom with only 18 points, tying for the sixth fewest first-half points ever by a Lady Vol squad, and trailed 30-18. The Lady Vol offense managed to shoot only 21.9 percent (7-of-32) in the first 20 minutes. Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain was the lone bright spot for the UT side in the opening half, scoring six points and grabbing five boards. Tennessee was unable to work the ball inside in the second half, and Cain finished with six points, seven rebounds and three blocks. The Lady Vols opened the second half holding steady with the Cardinal and cut the Stanford lead to eight (38-30) with 13:47 to play in the contest. The Cardinal quickly responded by rippinig off seven straight over the next 1:25 to build a 15-point advantage (45-30) with 12:22 to play. Tennessee cut its deficit to 11 (60-49) with 2:46 to play on a pair of Angie Bjorklund free throws, but that’s as close as the Lady Vols would get. Bjorklund scored a team-high 15 points and made three three pointers, tying her with Brittany Jackson for third in the UT record books with 161 career triples made. Sophomore Glory Johnson was the only other Lady Vol to score in double figures, as she finished with 13 points, seven rebounds and a pair of blocks. Tennessee tied a season low with 34 rebounds and was outrebounded, 44-34, for the first time in 2009-10. The Lady Vol offense managed only four assists, the fewest on the season, while the Cardinal offense tallied 14 helpers on 22 field goals and four Stanford players finished in double figures.

GAME 11: SAN FRANCISCO The Lady Vols bounced back from their first loss of the 2009-10 campaign with an 89-34 victory over the San Francisco Dons at War Memorial Gym in San Francisco, Calif. Junior Angie Bjorklund led UT with a game-high 19 points on the strength of 7-of-10 shooting - including 4-of-5 from three-point range - in only 17 minutes of action. Bjorklund dished out four assists and grabbed a pair of steals. The Dons opened the game strong, feeding off the energy the crowd of 3,255 brought to the gym that Bill Russell and K.C. Jones helped make famous, and owned a 4-2 advantage just over two minutes into the contest. Over the next 4:23, Tennessee went on a 10-0 run, built a 12-4 lead and would not look back. After stretching the lead to 24-11 with 10:04 left in the first stanza, the Lady Vols would go on a 24-6 run to end the half, including a stretch where UT went on a 13-0 tear to build a 37-11 lead. The second half saw the Lady Vol bench used almost exclusively, as Tennessee outscored the Dons 41-17 in the final 20 minutes. Freshman Kamiko Williams shined the brightest for UT in the second stanza, as she scored 10 of her 14 points, grabbed six of her eight boards, picked four steals and dished out three assists in 14 second-half minutes. Sophomore Glory Johnson narrowly missed a double double, as she finished with 13 points and nine rebounds. Despite shooting only 3-of-9 from the floor, she was 7-of-8 from the free throw line. Classmates Alicia Manning and Alyssia Brewer each finished with eight points. Manning hauled in eight rebounds, dished out three assists and grabbed three steals in 25 minutes. Brewer grabbed six rebounds and added a block and a steal in 24 minutes. The Lady Vol size advantage was quite evident, as UT enjoyed a 52-32 rebounding edge, the 10th time in 2009-10 that Tennessee owned the glass. The Tennessee offense was able to work the ball inside and claimed a 36-2 paint points advantage.

GAME 12: OLD DOMINION If the Tennessee Lady Vols had developed any rust over the holiday break it did not show, as UT downed Old Dominion 102-62 on Dec. 30, 2009. It was the first time the Lady Vols had broken the centruy mark since Jan. 2, 2008, when UT claimed a 102-68 road win over the DePaul Blue Demons. The Tennessee shooting was red-hot, as the Lady Vols converted 43-of-64 field goal attempts, good for a 67.2 percent clip. It was the seventh best shooting night in UT history. In the first half, UT was 26-of-37 from the field and owned a 57-31 lead at the break. It was the most first-half points since UT scored 59 in the opening stanza against Chattanooga on Nov. 12, 2006. Tennessee opened the game on an 11-0 run and never trailed during the contest. Midway through the first half, UT used a 15-2 run over 4:50 to build a 36-15 lead. Sophmore Glory Johnson led five Lady Vols in double figure scoring, as she posted her eighth career double double with 15 points and 10 rebounds while coming off the bench for the first time this season. Junior Angie Bjorklund tallied a game-high 19 points on 8-of-12 shooting, including a trio of three-pointers. Sophomore Alyssia Brewer tossed in 16 points, grabbed six boards, dished out three assists and blocked two shots in 22 minutes of action. Sophomore Briana Bass and freshman Kamiko Williams each added 11 points for UT. Bass converted on 4-of-5 field goals attempts, including a perfect 3-of-3 from beyond the arc for a season-best scoring game. In addition to the points, Williams dished out a season high six assists to go with three rebounds and two steals. The Lady Vols were given a scare when sophomore Shekinna Stricklen landed awkwardly on her right knee three minutes into the contest and had to be helped off the court. She tested fine and returned to the bench but did not play.

GAME 13: #14/15 OKLAHOMA The Tennessee Lady Vols began the new year with a bang, downing the No. 14/15-ranked Oklahoma Sooners, 96-75, in front of 13,332 at Thompson-Boling Arena and a national TV audience on ESPN2 on Jan. 3. What those in attendance and watching on TV also witnessed was a night of history as UT sophomore Shekinna Stricklen recorded just the second triple-double in Lady Vol history, as she finished with 17 points, 13 rebounds and a career-best 12 assists. Early in the game, however, UT Head Coach Pat Summitt was not pleased with what she was seeing from her point guard. “When she took me out, she told me that I wasn’t playing like a point guard and that I needed to step my game up to another level,” Stricklen said. “I just said ‘Yes ma’am, and I responded.” Stricklen wasn’t the only Lady Vol to post a big night. Junior shooting guard Angie Bjorklund torched the nets for 25 points, including a 5-of-8 performance from beyond the arc. The Sooners opened the game with a 9-2 run and held a 10 point advantage, 14-4, with 16:51 to play in the first half. The Lady Vols responded, and used a 13-2 run over 4:01 to build a 27-22 lead with 8:50 left in the opening stanza. Tennessee went into the break with the lead, 45-39, for the 10th time this season. In the second half, the Lady Vols pulled away, outscoring the Sooners 51-36 in the second frame. In addition to Bjorklund and Stricklen, sophomores Alyssia Brewer and Kelley Cain each posted double-digit scoring nights. Brewer tossed in 13 points, to go with five rebounds, two blocks, an assist and a steal. Cain dumped in 10 points, hauled in eight boards and blocked five shots. The pair dominated the post and helped UT to a 44-22 points in the paint advantage and a 48-31 rebounding margin, the 12th time this season the Lady Vols have owned a positive rebound margin.

GAME 14: SOUTH CAROLINA The Tennessee Lady Vols opened the SEC portion of the 2009-10 schedule with a 79-62 victory over the South Carolina Gamecocks on Jan. 7. The win improved UT to 41-2 all-time against USC, extended the Lady Vols’ winning streak to 37 in the series and improved Tennessee’s record to 26-5 in conference openers. The Gamecocks and Lady Vols would go back and forth over the opening minutes and SC built a six point lead, 14-8, barely three minutes into the contest. The Tennessee defense stepped up and held the South Carolina offense without a field goal for over five and a half minutes to turn a 19-14 deficit into a 31-20 lead with 9:28 to play before the break. For the sixth time this season and the fourth straight game, UT shot above 50 percent from the field in the opening stanza and used the hot shooting to build a 47-33 lead at the break. It was the 11th time in 2009-10 that the Lady Vols have held the halftime advantage. After the break, South Carolina continued to fight and pulled within seven, 55-48, on a pair of Jewel May free throws with 12:36 to play. The UT defense held the SC offense without a field goal from the 13:39 mark of the second half with the score 53-46 to the 6:57 point and a 68-49 Lady Vol lead. The crowd of 1,462 (10,590 tickets were sold) was the second smallest at Thompson-Boling Arena due to bad weather. The smallest was when 1,461 fought the ice to see the Lady Vols down Mississippi State, 91-63, on Jan. 2, 1991. While the weather outside wrecked havoc on the crowd, junior Angie Bjorklund and sophomore Shekinna Stricklen were both hot. The two combined to shoot 17-of-32 for 44 points. Bjorklund tallied 23, including five three pointers, and Stricklen added 21 points. In addition, Bjorklund finished with four boards, three assists and a steal, while Stricklen tallied six assists, two rebounds and three blocks. Sophomore Kelley Cain added eight points, five boards and six blocks, while classmate Glory Johnson finished with nine points and nine rebounds.

GAME 15: MISSISSIPPI STATE The Tennessee Lady Vols went on the road for the first time in the 2010 SEC season and downed the Mississippi State Lady Bulldogs, 75-48, on Jan. 10 in Starkville. With the win, the Lady Bulldogs remain the only league foe to have never beaten the Lady Vols, with the all-time series standing at 31-0 in favor of UT. Sophomore Glory Johnson, who had been in and out of Coach Summitt’s dog house over the previous week, was back in the starting lineup and posted a double-double, in the first half. It was the Knoxville native’s ninth career double-double as she finished with 16 points and a career-best 15 rebounds. Tennessee began the game on a 13-5 run over nearly the first five minutes and never trailed in the contest for the third time this season. The Lady Vol defense stifled the Mississippi State offense with its long and rangy zone defense. The Lady Bulldogs came into the contest averaging 78.4 ppg and converting field goals at a 43.2 clip. The UT defense limited MSU to season lows of 28.1 percent shooting and 48 points. Tennessee went into the half with a 39-18 lead, the 12th time in 2009-10 that the Lady Vols have enjoyed an advantage in the locker room. And for the 12th time, the Lady Vols claimed a victory. Senior Alexis Rack was the Lady Bulldogs’ leading scorer at 20.4 ppg, and the UT defense held her to only five first-half points and 19 for the game. Along with Johnson, junior Angie Bjorklund and freshman Taber Spani finished in double figure scoring for Tennessee. Bjorklund continued her hot streak, shooting 6-of-14 from the floor and 4-of9 from three-point range to finish with 16 points. She added six boards, three steals and a pair of assists. Spani tossed in double digits for the first time since Nov. 28, as she tallied 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting. Sophomore Shekinna Stricklen continued to be a jack-of-alltrades as she notched nine points, nine rebounds and six assists. Redshirt-sophomore Kelley Cain added six points, five boards and two blocks in only 15 minutes of action.

GAME 16: FLORIDA The Tennessee Lady Vols overcame a season-high 25 turnovers and a poor first-half shooting performance to down the Florida Gators, 66-64, in Gainesville on Jan. 14. Redshirt sophomore center Kelley Cain led the Lady Vols with her third career double double, as she tallied game-highs of 17 points and 10 rebounds. Cain scored the first six points of the game, as Tennessee raced to an 11-3 lead just 2:25 into the contest. After a Shekinna Stricklen three-pointer put the Lady Vols up 14-6 at the 14:41 mark of the first half, Florida went on a 9-0 run to take its first lead of the game, 15-14, on a Trumae Lucas fastbreak layup at the 11:31 point. The two sides would battle back-and-forth the rest of the opening frame, and Tennessee went into the lockerroom with a 32-29 lead, the 13th time in 2009-10 that UT held an advantage at the break. After taking a 36-35 lead on a Stricklen jumper with 17:37 remaining in the contest, Tennessee would trail until Cain converted a layup with just 1:32 to play in the game. The Gators led by as much as eight, which they did at 56-48 with 7:33 to play. Prior to Cain’s layup, freshman Kamiko Williams made a jumper in the lane with 2:17 on the clock to tie the game at 62 apiece. The Lady Vols were able to overcome the deficit by shooting nearly 61 percent in the second half. Junior Angie Bjorklund did not score in the first half and had a pair of three pointers to keep UT within striking distance. The Spokane Valley, Wash., native made arguably her biggest bucket to date of the season as she converted a reverse layup with just 2.3 seconds to play that put Tennessee up 66-64. The Gators would have one last attempt, and a half court inbounds pass led to a wide open three-point attempt by Lonnika Thompson that bounced off the rim as time expired. Joining Cain in double figures was Stricklen with 14 points and six boards. Sophomore Glory Johnson hauled in 10 rebounds and added eight points, the 13th time in her career she has grabbed double digit boards.

GAME 17: #rv/22 VANDERBILT The Vanderbilt Commodores came into Thompson-Boling Arena with an all-time record of 0-24 against the Lady Vols in Knoxville. And the Commodores would head westward to Nashville with an 0-25 mark after the Lady Vols survived their rival, 64-57, on Jan. 17. The Lady Vols started the contest hot, opening with an 11-3 run over the first 4:43. The Tennessee defense would stifle the VU offense, not allowing a field goal for over seven minutes and holding the Commodores scoreless from the 14:09 mark to the 6:36 point of the first half. Over that stretch, Tennessee built a 27-7 lead. The Commodores would not go down without a fight and rallied to within eight, 29-21, on a pair of free throws and three straight three pointers with 4:45 to play in the half. Eighteen of VU’s 29 first-half points came from behind the arc. The Lady Vols went into the halftime break with the lead for the 14th time in 2009-10. Every game in which UT has held the halftime lead, it has won this season. Vanderbilt began the second half by chipping away at the Tennessee lead and forcing the game’s second and final tie, 45-45, at the 15:04 mark. Tennessee would make five of its final six free throws to provide the final margin. Sophomore Glory Johnson led the Lady Vols with teamhighs of 17 points and nine rebounds. The Knoxville native was 6-of-11 from the field and 5-of-7 from the charity stripe. Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain tossed in 14 points on a 6-of-7 shooting performance to go with nine boards. Sophomore Shekinna Stricklen was the third Lady Vol to post double digits, as she added 10 points. Tennessee was able to exploit Vanderbilt in two specialty stats. The Lady Vols turned 27 VU turnovers into 28 points and outscored the Commodores 30-12 in the paint, as UT enjoyed a significant size advantage.

GAME 18: #8/8 GEORGIA The Tennessee Lady Volunteers’ turnover woes continued on Jan. 21 in Athens, and the No. 8/8 ranked Georgia Lady Bulldogs capitalized, handing the Lady Vols their second defeat of the season, 53-50. The loss was UT’s first in Athens since dropping a 78-51 decision to the Lady Bulldogs on Jan. 17, 2000, and it also ended an eight-game winning streak for Tennessee in the series. UGA Head Coach Andy Landers has the most wins of any coach (15) against UT Head Coach Pat Summitt. Tennessee and Georgia went back-and-forth in the first half, with neither side taking a lead bigger than four. The first 20 minutes featured seven lead changes and six ties. The Lady Vols shot at least 50 percent in the first half for the eighth time this season but were tied with the Lady Bulldogs at 30 apiece at the break. It was the first time in 2009-10 that UT was even with its opponent heading into the lockerroom. Georgia gained a two-point advantage, 32-30, 20 seconds into the second half and Tennessee forced tie number seven of the game at the 18:29 mark. Neither team was able to score again until the 15:37 point of the second half when Glory Johnson gave UT a two-point edge. Georgia’s Ashley Houts hit a three pointer at the 4:59 mark, forced a steal and converted a fastbreak layup at the 4:37 point to give the lead back to UGA. Alyssia Brewer would give the Lady Vols a 50-49 lead with 1:07 to play, but a Porsha Phillips layup and a pair of free throws provided the final margin. Tennessee shot 29.2 percent from the floor in the second half, the worst second-half shooting performance of the season for UT. Johnson led Tennessee with a game-high 14 points and added eight rebounds playing all 40 minutes. Kelley Cain added 10 points and nine rebounds before fouling out with 4:13 to play. Brewer started her third career game and tallied eight points and seven rebounds.

GAME 19: #18/19 LSU On a night when the Tennessee Lady Vols’ offense struggled at times, their defense stepped up and led UT to a 55-43 win at #18/19-ranked LSU on Jan. 24. Tennessee shot just 40 percent in the first half but limited LSU to 29.2 percent shooting in the opening frame and took a 24-22 lead into the half, despite not scoring for the final 3:15 of the stanza. The second half opened much the same way the first half ended, with neither team scoring for the first 3:06 and not converting a field goal for the first 3:24 of the second 20 minutes. Tennessee did not trail in the first half for the fifth time this season and the Lady Tigers did not gain a lead until the 11:55 point of the second half, which they held for 2:09 before UT regained the lead. The Tennessee offense bounced back and shot 50.0 percent (11-of-22) in the second half, but it was the Lady Vol defense that made the difference and allowed UT to churn out a 12-point win. The Lady Tigers were held to just 24.1 percent shooting, (7-of-29), in the second half and the Lady Vol defense held the LSU offense scoreless from the 9:35 mark to the 2:47 point, a stretch of 6:48. During that span, Tennessee turned a 37-37 tie into a 50-37 lead. Sophomore Alyssia Brewer earned Lady Vol Player of the Game honors after posting team bests of 14 points and seven rebounds in 23 minutes of action. The Sapulpa, Okla., native made her fourth start of her career and of the season. Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain tallied double digits, as she tossed in 11 points on 4-of-4 shooting from the field and 3-of-3 from the charity stripe. Cain added four blocks and three rebounds. Sophomore Glory Johnson finished with eight points and six rebounds. The post trio of Brewer, Cain and Johnson finished the game 13-of-22 and scored 33 points and hauled in 16 rebounds. Junior Angie Bjorklund, who did not start for the first time since coming off the bench at Auburn on Jan. 25, 2009, finished with 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting, including a pair of threes.

GAME 20: Auburn In 2008-09, the Auburn Tigers became the first squad to beat Tennessee twice in one season since the 2003-04 campaign. On Jan. 28, the Tigers came to Thompson-Boling Arena, and the Lady Vols sent AU back to the Plains with an 85-56 loss. Four Lady Vols finished the night with double digit scoring efforts, led by junior Angie Bjorklund’s 20 points and sophomore Glory Johnson’s 10th career double double of 15 points and 13 rebounds. For the night, Tennessee tied a school record of 13 three-pointers made, keyed by a 6-of-12 performance from behind the arc by Bjorklund. It marked the 18th time that the Spokane Valley, Wash., native has made at least four three pointers in a contest during her tenure at Rocky Top. Sophomore Shekinna Stricklen tossed in a trio of triples en route to scoring 17 points for the game, and hauled in five rebounds. Classmate Alyssia Brewer came off the bench to score 11 points and pull in eight boards. On a night when the Lady Vols converted 56.5 percent of their threes, the second-best three point shooting night of the season, it would be fitting that Johnson made her first career triple too. With 2:50 remaining in the first half and UT holding a 34-25 lead, the ball rolled to Johnson and she heaved up a prayer as she was falling backwards with three seconds on the shot clock and hit nothing but net. The Tigers jumped to an early lead, 5-0, at the 18:27 mark of the first half, but Tennessee used a series of runs and good defense to take a 43-25 halftime lead. Tennessee also won the battle of the paint, as UT’s post combination of Kelley Cain and Brewer combined for 18 points and 13 rebounds while holding AU’s KeKe Carrier to eight points, six below her season average. The Lady Vols outscored the Tigers 34-22 in the paint and won the rebounding battle, 43-37, for the 19th time this season.

GAME 21: South Carolina The Tennessee Lady Vols overcame early shooting woes and a hot South Carolina start to claim a 60-55 win on Jan. 31 in Columbia. The win improved Tennessee to 42-2 all-time against South Carolina, including the past 38 consecutive contests. The Gamecocks raced out to a 13-0 lead before Tennessee got its first basket at the 15:55 mark of the first half, an Alyssia Brewer jumper in the paint. Freshman Kamiko Williams played arguably her best game of the season to date and kept the Lady Vols in the game with 10 first half points on 4-of-8 shooting. Tennessee trailed for the entire first half and went into the break down 26-25. The Lady Vols continued to fight and keep the game close, and took their first lead of the game with 7:53 left in the contest on a Brewer jumper in the paint off an assist by Williams. Tennessee made key plays down the stretch to escape Columbia with a victory. Junior Angie Bjorklund hit a jumper with 27 seconds left from the left wing as the shot clock nearly ran out, giving UT a 58-55 lead. On the next possession, South Carolina attempted to inbound the ball in front of its own bench when sophomore Alicia Manning tipped the pass and Williams snatched up the loose ball. The rookie coolly converted both free throws to give Tennessee a five point advantage. The Lady Vol defense forced another turnover on a Gamecock inbound play underneath the South Carolina hoop, with Bjorklund coming up with the loose ball on the final play of the game. Williams tallied a team high and career best 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting and dished out four assists. Brewer tossed in 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting, including a 4-of-5 performance from the charity stripe, while redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain added 10. The Lady Vol bench outscored the South Carolina reserves 32-6.

GAME 22: Arkansas The Tennessee Lady Vols enjoyed a significant size advantage against the Arkansas Razorbacks on Feb. 4 and used the edge to earn a 74-57 victory at Thompson-Boling Arena. Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain and sophomore Alyssia Brewer dominated down low at both ends of the floor. On the offensive end, the pair combined for 34 points and eight offensive boards, and helped UT enjoy a 40-16 advantage in paint points. On the defensive end, the two combined for 18 boards and 10 blocks, while limiting the Razorback starting post game to just two points and six total rebounds. Cain tied Ashley Robinson’s school record of eight blocks and posted a career-best 17 rebounds, while Brewer tallied her second career 20-plus point performance. Tennessee got the first bucket of the game, a fastbreak layup by Shekinna Stricklen, and never looked back. The Lady Vols never trailed in the contest for the fifth time this season. Tennessee also owned a 51-41 advantage on the glass, the 21st time this season UT has won the battle of the boards. The Lady Vols’ top two scorers, junior Angie Bjorklund and Stricklen, combined for two points on 1-of-8 shooting in the first half. The duo responded by going 9-of-16 for 27 points in the second half. Sophomore Glory Johnson came off the bench for the third time in 2009-10 and tallied five points and six rebounds in 12 minutes of action. Freshman Kamiko Williams became the 59th rookie to start a game at Rocky Top, getting the nod at point guard, and finished with three points, two rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes. The victory earned the Lady Vols their 34th consecutive season of at least 20 wins, tying the seventh fastest squad to the milestone and extended UT’s winning streak to 16 against the Razorbacks.

GAME 23: #rv/22 Vanderbilt You would expect a game between squads meeting for the 63rd time to be close, and that is exactly what happened in Nashville when the Tennessee Lady Vols traveled to face the rival Vanderbilt Commodores on Feb. 8. The contest featured mini-runs by both sides, six ties and three lead changes, and the Lady Vols came out on top, 69-60. The win gives Tennessee the regular-season sweep of the Commodores and improved the Lady Vols to 55-7 all-time against VU. The victory also prevented Vanderbilt from claiming two consecutive wins in Nashville over Tennessee for the first time. Tennessee opened the game making six of its first seven shots and building a 12-7 advantage at the first media timeout. The Lady Vols would go cold, making only one of their next 15 shots and falling behind 20-16. Vandy stretched its lead to 2820 with 4:08 left in the half, but in their final six possessions of the period, the Commodores would go 0-of-3 from the floor and turn the ball over three times. Over that span, UT got a pair of buckets and was 4-of-4 from the charity stripe to tie the game at 28 at the half. Vanderbilt opened the second half with a three-pointer and Tennessee kept it close, but the Lady Vols would not get their first lead of the final 20 minutes until the 5:33 mark. Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain made a statement rejection of VU’s Gabby Smith and sophomore Alicia Manning picked up the loose ball and raced for a layup, putting UT up 52-51 and giving the Lady Vols the lead for good. Tennessee made nine of its final 11 shots and 6-of-8 free throws in the final 1:04 to seal the win. Cain finished with a career-high 19 points go with seven boards and five blocks. Sophomore Glory Johnson posted all of her 10 points and eight rebounds in 12 second-half minutes. Junior Angie Bjorklund pitched in 10 points and four rebounds, while sophomore Alyssia Brewer added 10 points and seven boards off the bench.

GAME 24: OLE MISS Head Coach Pat Summitt always talks about the ability of the three-pointer to change the course of a game - on defense the need to defend and on offense the momentum it can provide. On Feb. 11 in Oxford, the long ball was especially important, as Tennessee came away with a 61-58 win over the Ole Miss Rebels. Junior Angie Bjorklund made four triples, the first of which put her over the 1,000 point mark for her career. The last of which came with three seconds to play and gave Tennessee the win. In between, Ole Miss hit 10 threes, tying the most by a UT foe this year, five of which came from Elizabeth Robertson. The double digit three-pointers by the Rebels allowed them to hold the lead for most of the second half. Tennessee briefly held the lead five minutes into the second half, but would not take the advantage for good until an Alyssia Brewer layup at the 3:17 mark. A Bjorklund three put UT up 58-54 with 2:41 to go, but Ole Miss tied it at 58 on a Bianca Thomas layup with 16 seconds to go. After Summitt called a timeout to draw up a final play, Shekinna Stricklen was cut off and handed back to Bjorklund who hit a three pointer with three seconds left for the win. This marks the second consecutive year that Bjorklund has hit a three to beat Ole Miss. Last year in Knoxville, she hit one from the right corner with eight seconds left for a 60-59 win. Stricklen led the Lady Vols with 13 points, eight assists and four rebounds. Brewer earned player of the game honors with 12 points and eight boards off the bench. Bjorklund tallied nine second-half points to finish with 12, and added six assists and four rebounds. Alicia Manning, making her third start of the season, finished with a season-high 10 points on 5-of-8 shooting. Redshirt sophomore post Kelley Cain tallied only seven points but hauled in 16 rebounds, leading UT to a rebounding advantage for the 23rd time this season. The Lady Vols outscored Ole Miss 32-10 in the paint, and the UT bench provided a 15-2 edge over the Rebel reserves.

GAME 25: FLORIDA The first time the Lady Volunteers and Gators squared off in 2009-10, it took a reverse layup by junior Angie Bjorklund with 2.3 seconds remaining to decide the contest, a 66-64 win for UT in Gainesville. For the first 14 minutes of the second meeting, it looked as if the contest would play out in a very similar manner. However, UT used a 10-0 run over four minutes, 10 seconds late in the first half to build a 31-21 lead, and the Lady Vols would head into the lockerroom with a 34-28 lead. Despite having an advantage, Coach Summitt challenged the team at the break and the Lady Vols came out much more aggressive in the final 20 minutes, which would be arguably the best half of basketball by UT this season. The Tennessee defense held the Gators to just 16 points on 21.2 percent shooting. The 16 points were the fewest UT has allowed in the second stanza all season. Conversely, the 49 points are the most UT has scored in the second half of an SEC game, and the 64.5 percent Tennessee shot from the field in the second half is the best by the Lady Vols all season in the final 20 minutes. Bjorklund scored a game-high 24 points on 9-of-17 shooting, including a 6-of-12 effort from three-point range and dished out three assists. The contest marked her 50th career double digit scoring game and the 20th time she has converted at least four threes in a game. Bjorklund began the game in fifth place on the single season threes made list and finished the day in second with 81. In total, four of five UT starters tallied double digit scoring games. Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain tied a career high with 19 points, to go with eight rebounds and seven blocks, one off the school record. Sophomores Shekinna Stricklen and Alicia Manning added 12 and 11 points, respectively. Stricklen added six boards and four assists, while Manning tallied nine boards and tied a career high with six assists. Tennessee won the points in the paint battle, 42-20, and finished with 12 blocks, tying the most ever against the Gators and one shy of the Tennessee school record.

GAME 26: ALABAMA The Tennessee Lady Volunteers made their final road trip of the 2009-10 regular season to Tuscaloosa, Ala., for a match-up with the Alabama Crimson Tide on Feb. 18. Tennessee escaped from Tuscaloosa with a 74-67 victory and finished the conference road slate with a 7-1 record after going just 2-5 in away games in 2008-09. Head Coach Pat Summitt announced on Wednesday before leaving Knoxville that 6-6 center Kelley Cain would not travel with the team in order to stay in Knoxville and attend class. Without the dominating presence of Cain inside, sophomore Alyssia Brewer was called upon to start, the sixth time in her career she has earned the nod. Brewer earned Player of the Game honors after posting her fourth career double-double with a team-high 20 points and a game-high 10 rebounds. Brewer’s inside game was not enough, as Tennessee was outrebounded for only the second time on the campaign, 4533, and outscored in the paint, 40-36. The Lady Vols made two key runs, one in each half, to put some distance between themselves and the Crimson Tide. In the first half, UT put together a 9-0 stretch to turn a 19-19 tie into a 28-19 Big Orange lead with 4:59 remaining in the frame. The Lady Vol defense kept the Crimson Tide without a field goal from the 9:44 mark of the second half to the 5:02 point, using a 13-4 run to build a 67-53 lead. Sophomore Shekinna Stricklen was 7-of-12 from the floor to finish with 14 points for Tennesseee. She added five boards and three steals. Junior Angie Bjorklund tossed in 13 points on 5-of-13 shooting, and added five rebounds and a pair of assists, while playing all 40 minutes. Tennessee forced 24 Crimson Tide turnovers, the second most by a Lady Vol foe this season, and turned the miscues into 27 points.

GAME 27: #20/rv LSU The Tennessee Lady Volunteers began the final week of the 2009-10 regular season with a “Big Monday” match-up with the 20th-ranked LSU Lady Tigers on Feb. 22, and the Lady Vols claimed a 70-61 victory. The win gave UT a share of the SEC regular-season title and a season sweep of the Lady Tigers, the fourth league foe Tennessee has beaten twice this season. After missing the Alabama game, redshirt-sophomore Kelley Cain returned to the Lady Vol lineup in a big way. Despite playing only 23 minutes before fouling out, the Atlanta, Ga., native scored 16 points, blocked 12 shots and grabbed seven rebounds. The 12 blocks are a UT single-game record and is the second-best single-game performance in SEC history. Cain’s 12 rejections were a part of UT’s 14 team blocks, which set another Lady Vol record. With the impressive display of shot blocking, Cain moved from fifth to second in the single-season record books with 91 swats on the campaign. After shooting a dismal 40 percent from the charity stripe in their last outing, the Lady Vols set a new single-game mark by making all 10 of their free throws attempts, all of which came in the second half. Tennessee held LSU without a field goal from the 4:03 mark of the first half to the 0:01 point, turning a 24-21 advantage into a 32-21 lead. After the first half saw five ties and three lead changes, the Lady Vols controlled the entire final 20 minutes en route to victory and committed a seasonlow seven turnovers. In addtion to Cain, sophomore Alyssia Brewer posted 18 points and grabbed six boards. Classmate Glory Johnson finished in double digits with 12 points in addition to pulling down eight boards. Junior Angie Bjorklund and sophomore Shekinna Stricklen each tossed in 10 points and combined for 10 assists - half of the team total of 20 - and five rebounds.

GAME 28: #16/14 KENTUCKY The Tennessee Lady Volunteers clinched their 15th regular season Southeastern Conference title with an 81-65 victory over the #16/14 Kentucky Wildcats on Feb. 25. With the win, UT extended its home winning streak to 16 games and its home winning streak against UK to 15 games. Tennessee opened the contest on a 9-2 run and held the Wildcats without a field goal for 6:15 early in the contest to turn a 9-4 advantage into a 20-6 lead with 11:17 to play in the half. UK pulled within seven (23-16) with 9:12 left in the opening frame, but the Lady Vols ran off a 13-0 stretch to the 5:21 mark and built a 37-16 margin. The Lady Vols would head into the lockerroom with a 45-31 edge, the 21st time UT has held a lead after the first 20 minutes. Tennessee never trailed in the first half for the seventh time this season and would not trail in the game for the sixth time on the campaign. The Lady Vols’ size proved to be too much for the Wildcats, as UT again set a school record in blocks for the second consecutive game. The 15 rejections tallied against UK topped the previous mark of 14 set on Feb. 22 against LSU. Despite playing only three minutes in the first half after picking up two quick fouls, redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain responded to score 11 points, grab six boards and block six shots in the second half. She finished with a team-high 14 points and seven blocks. Four other Lady Vols, led by sophomore Glory Johnson’s 13 points, finished in double figures. Johnson hauled in eight boards as well. Junior Angie Bjorklund and sophomore Shekinna Stricklen each added 12 points, while Stricklen pulled down seven boards and dished out five assists. Sophomore Alyssia Brewer added 10 points, seven rebounds and four blocks. Classmate Alicia Manning grabbed a career-best and game-high 11 rebounds. Tennessee outscored UK 36-26 in the paint and the Lady Vol reserves outscored the Wildcat bench 26-8.

GAME 29: OLE MISS The Tennessee Lady Volunteers finished the 2009-10 regular season by putting the final touches on the first undefeated home regular season since 2002-03. A 75-63 win over the Rebels extended UT’s home winning streak to 17 games and made it 19 games since Ole Miss last downed the Lady Vols. Tennessee raced out to a 10-2 start over the first 3:01 of the contest, and the Lady Vols built a 31-18 lead with 6:04 to play in the first half. The Rebels battled back within five, 3631, on the strength of a trio of three-pointers. Tennessee was able to extend the lead back to eight, 40-32, at the half. Tennessee pushed its lead back to 10 points, 44-34, barely a minute into the second half. Ole Miss’ Bianca Thomas scored the Rebels’ next 12 points and moved UM to within one, and Elizabeth Robertson forced the first and only tie of the game at 50 with a three-pointer at the 12:32 mark. The Lady Vols outscored the Rebels 17-4 over the next 8:25 to claim a victory in their final regular season game. The Rebels were led by Thomas, a Henderson, Tenn., native, who torched the Lady Vols for 34 points, the most by an individual against UT this year. Tennessee was led by a pair of sophomores. Shekinna Stricklen scored a team-high 23 points and grabbed a gamehigh 10 rebounds for her fourth double-double of the season and the sixth of her career. Alicia Manning scored a careerbest 15 points and tied Stricklen for game-high rebound honors with 10. Redshirt sophomore center Kelley Cain finished with eight rebounds, seven points and three blocks. The trio of rejections pushed Cain to 101 swats on the campaign and past former Player of the Year Candace Parker’s school record of 99 blocks in a season. Tennessee won the battle of the boards, 49-40, for the 27th time and outscored Ole Miss 34-22 in the paint.

GAME 30: OLE MISS The Tennessee Lady Volunteers began their quest for a 14th Southeastern Conference Tournament title with the Ole Miss Rebels, the last team they finished off for their 15th regular season SEC crown. The Lady Vols got off to a quick start and raced away from the Rebels for a 76-51 win in the second round of the SEC Tournament. The Rebels got on the board first with a three-pointer from Bianca Thomas just 17 seconds into the contest. That was the last Ole Miss field goal until the 16:52 mark, during which time UT went on a 10-3 run. After the Lady Vols built a 17-8 lead just over four minutes into the game, the Rebels went on a 7-0 streak to pull within 17-15 at the 11:55 point. From there, the Lady Vols went on a 21-2 spurt over the next 7:05 to open a 38-17 lead. Tennessee would go into the halftime break with a 50-25 lead, having forced nine Rebel turnovers, scoring 17 points off of Ole Miss miscues. The Lady Vols would shoot just 37 percent in the second half, but the UT defense held Ole Miss to 28.6 percent. The squads were equal through the final 20 minutes, and the Lady Vols claimed the victory. Tennessee was led by sophomores Alyssia Brewer and Alicia Manning. Brewer scored a game-high 21 points on 9-of-11 shooting. The Sapulpa, Okla., native added six rebounds and two blocks in 28 minutes. Manning tallied her second career double-double with 14 points and a careerhigh 14 rebounds. The Woodstock, Ga., native tallied her first career double-double in the regular-season finale against the Rebels just five days earlier. Junior Angie Bjorklund was in double figures with 16 points and dished out a game-high five assists. Sophomore Shekinna Stricklen tossed in 10 points and five rebounds. Tennessee outscored Ole Miss 40-26 in the paint, 20-6 off of turnovers and 26-3 in second chance points.

Alyssia Brewer was named the MVP of the 2010 SEC Tournament after averaging 14.7 ppg and 5.7 rpg.

GAME 32: #19/18 KENTUCKY The Tennessee Lady Volunteers attempted to become the first Southeastern Conference team to pull off the “doubledouble” of the regular-season league crown and tournament title since the Lady Vols accomplished the feat in 2000. Tennessee was able to down No. 2 seed and #19/18-ranked Kentucky, 70-62, and earned the Lady Vols’ 14th SEC Tournament title. Sophomore Alyssia Brewer was named SEC Tournament MVP, while classmates Alicia Manning and Shekinna Stricklen were named to the all-tournament team. Against the Wildcats, Brewer finished with eight points, four rebounds and two blocks in the post. Manning continued to dominate the glass and tied for game-high honors with 11 rebounds, to go with six points and four assists. Stricklen led the Lady Vols with 20 points and added nine boards, three assists and three steals. Sophomore Glory Johnson equaled Manning with 11 rebounds and pitched in seven points. Freshman Kamiko Williams stepped up big, especially in the first half, and finished with eight points, four rebounds, three assists and two steals off the bench. Tennessee opened the game hot at both ends and built a 19-9 lead nearly midway through the first frame. After the UT offense went cold and UK tied the game at 25, Williams came in and made the next four Lady Vol buckets, keeping Tennessee within striking distance and helping UT take a 3529 halftime lead. After UK tied the game at 50 with 10:03 to play, UT ran off seven straight points over the next three minutes to take a 57-50 lead. The Wildcats would get within five with 1:09 remaining, but the Lady Vols made 4-of-6 free throws down the stretch to ice the game. Tennessee outrebounded UK, 51-32, and outscored the Wildcats, 44-30, in the paint.

Alicia Manning was named to the All-SEC Tournament Team. In three games, she posted 8.7 ppg and 10 rpg.

GAME 31: VANDERBILT The Tennessee Lady Volunteers have faced the Vanderbilt Commodores three times in a season eight previous times and entered the SEC Semifinals with a 22-2 mark in those games. Tennessee was able to finish off the Commodores, 68-49, and improve to 25-2 when facing VU three times in a season. After falling behind 10-4 not even four minutes into the contest, the Lady Vols put together a 13-2 run to the 9:29 mark of the first half and built a 17-12 lead. The Lady Vols would go into the break with a 31-22 lead after forcing nine Commodore turnovers and turning them into 12 points. Vanderbilt cut the Tennessee lead to 45-36 at the 9:16 mark of the second half on a Merideth Marsh three-pointer, the first time VU had been within single digits of the Lady Vols since it was 31-22 at the half. From that point, Tennessee went on an 11-0 run to build a 56-36 lead with just 4:47 to play in the contest. After allowing Vanderbilt to shoot 40.9 percent from the field in the first 20 minutes, the Lady Vol defense stepped up and limited the Commodores to just 26.8 percent shooting in the second half. In the previous two games against VU this season, the Commodores were able to hurt the Lady Vols from beyond the arc, but the UT defense held Vanderbilt to a meager 17.6 percent (3-of-17) shooting. Tennessee was led by sophomore post Alyssia Brewer, who tallied a game-high 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting and tied for game-high honors by hauling in seven rebounds. Junior guard Angie Bjorklund was the only other Lady Vol to post double digits. The Spokane Valley, Wash., native converted four three-pointers to finish with 12 points. Sophomore Alicia Manning finished with six points, five rebounds and four assists, while classmate Shekinna Stricklen pitched in nine points, seven assists and four rebounds.

GAME 33: AUSTIN PEAY The Tennessee Lady Volunteers opened the 2010 NCAA Tournament in the friendly confines of Thompson-Boling Arena for the first time since 2005. The Lady Vols downed in-state foe, the Austin Peay Lady Govs, 75-42. A crowd of 10,992 showed up to cheer on the Lady Vols, with the capacity of Thompson-Boling Arena for the NCAA Tournament at 12,839. Redshirt sophomore Kelley Cain led the Lady Vols with her sixth career double-double, as she tallied a team-high 18 points and a gamebest 12 rebounds. The 18 points were one off her career high of 19 points, which came against Florida in Knoxville on Feb. 14, 2010. Tennessee opened quick out of the gate, racing to a 15-0 lead and holding Austin Peay without a field goal until the 13:14 mark. Cain had six of UT’s first eight points. The Lady Vols extended their lead to 20 points, 30-10, on a pair of Glory Johnson free throws at the 7:44 point of the first half. Tennessee built a 37-16 lead at the break, the 26th time this season UT has held an advantage at the half. Cain continued to impress in the second half, as she tossed in eight points and hauled in six rebounds in only 11 second-half minutes. In addition to Cain, junior guard Angie Bjorklund and sophomore Shekinna Stricklen each finished in double figures. Bjorklund tallied 14 points and sank at least four three-pointers for the 23rd time in her career. Stricklen continued to be very solid, as she finished with 12 points, six boards and four assists in only 20 minutes of action. Sophomore Alyssia Brewer finished with nine rebounds and eight points, while classmate Johnson finished with eight points and eight boards. Freshman Taber Spani came off the bench to toss in nine points in her NCAA debut. The win extended the Lady Vols’ overall winning streak to 15 games and their home winning streak to 18 games. Tennessee improved to 76-13 all-time as a No. 1 seed and extended its winning streak as a top seed to 13 games.

GAME 34: DAYTON The Tennessee Lady Volunteers officially closed out their 2009-10 home season in style against the No. 8 seed Dayton Flyers in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on March 22. The Lady Vols raced to an early lead and never looked back, tallying a 92-64 win and advancing to the program’s 28th Sweet 16 in the 29-year history of the women’s “Big Dance”. After struggling in the opener against Austin Peay, sophomore Alicia Manning bounced back in resounding fashion. The 6-1 Woodstock, Ga., native notched her third career double-double with a career-best 17 points and 10 rebounds. Manning also dished out a career-high seven assists. Freshman Taber Spani came off the bench ready to go, converting her first seven shots, including three three-pointers, before missing a jumper at the 6:02 mark of the second half. The Lee’s Summit, Mo., native tallied 17 points in only 16 minutes of action. For the second consecutive game, Tennessee opened the action hot, this time building a 19-4 lead at the 13:30 point of the first half and forcing two Dayton timeouts. The Lady Vols stretched their halftime lead to 20 points, 50-30, the 27th time this season UT has held an edge at the break. The Flyers had only allowed one other team to tally even 40 points in the first half all season. After shooting a blistering 56.4 percent in the first half, the 11th time this season UT shot at least 50 percent in the opening frame and the fourth-best shooting first half of the campaign, the Lady Vols cooled to 51.4 percent shooting in the second half and outscored the Flyers 42-34 in the final 20 minutes. In addition to Manning and Spani, sophomores Alyssia Brewer and Kelley Cain, and junior Angie Bjorklund each finished with double figures. Brewer was 7-of-13 for 14 points and grabbed seven rebounds. Her post partner, Cain, was 6-of-10 for 12 points, to go with nine rebounds and six blocks. After draining four threes in the NCAA opener against Austin Peay, Bjorklund was 3-of-4 from three-point range and finished with 11 points, in addition to three assists and two rebounds.

GAME 35: BAYLOR The Tennessee Lady Volunteers’ 2009-10 season came to a close at the hands of fourth-seeded Baylor in the NCAA Tournament Regional Semifinals on March 27 at FedExForum in Memphis, Tenn. Baylor was led by freshman center Brittney Griner, as she scored 27 points and blocked 10 shots in the 77-62 victory for the Lady Bears. Tennessee was led by Shekinna Stricklen, who scored a teamhigh 18 points, and Kelley Cain, who grabbed 10 rebounds to go along with nine points. UT could not stop Griner from reaching the free throw line, where the 6-8 post went 11-of-13. As a team, Baylor made 18 of 19 free throw attempts in the second half to clinch the game. The teams went back and forth throughout the first half and early in the second, trading the lead 10 times and tying four times. With both Cain and Alyssia Brewer on the floor to guard Griner, Tennessee found some success inside and was up 55-50 with just under eight minutes left. The Lady Vol orange-clad crowd, though, fell silent as Griner hit back-to-back layups and had a three-point play as part of a 21-1 run as Tennessee’s defense unraveled. Melissa Jones added a three and Morghan Medlock converted a layup, and suddenly Baylor was up by double figures, 66-56, with under three minutes left in the game. As Tennessee was forced to foul, Baylor made its last eight free throws of the game, spanning the final 1:14. Kelli Griffin went a perfect 6-for-6 down the stretch. UT tried to fight back behind its top two scorers, Angie Bjorklund and Stricklen, but the pair struggled on three-point attempts as Baylor increased its lead. Bjorklund shot an uncharacteristic 5-of22 from the field, while Stricklen finished 1-of-5 from behind the arc. The Lady Vols allowed the Lady Bears 49.1 percent shooting -- a season high for a Tennessee opponent -- and 36 paint points.

THOMPSON-BOLING ARENA Thompson-Boling Arena • Tennessee recently invested more than $35 million in basketball, including a $20 million investment to renovate Thompson-Boling Arena. • This was the first major improvement to Thompson Boling Arena since it was built in 1987. • TBA renovations were done in a two phase process: – Phase I of the TBA improvements began construction in March 2007 and included concourse improvements, new seats for the entire arena, a center hung scoreboard, luxury suites and loge seating. – Phase II began following the 2007-08 season and included a new lighting system, replacement of ceiling panels, new ticket kiosks and new food courts. • Funding for the project came from donors to the Campaign for Tennessee Basketball and revenue from premium seating areas such as Thompson-Boling Arena luxury suites and loge seats. • The luxury suites include 32 suites in the 300 level of Thompson-Boling Arena, with each suite adjoining a large kitchen and seating area. The luxury suites sold out prior to the 20072008 basketball season. • Loge seating holds 166 large cushioned side court seats, located directly below the luxury suites in the 200 level. The loge seating has access to a private adjoining hospitality area. Loge seats are available for a $4,000 annual donation and the ticket fee to both Lady Vol and Vol basketball games.

YEAR-BY-YEAR HOME HISTORY

New Scoreboard and Electronics Thompson-Boling Arena offered fans a complete integrated video, scoring and advertising display system for the first time during the 2007-08 season. The new multimillion dollar system features the latest in full-color, light emitting diode (LED) display technology for Big Orange basketball. The new system is highlighted by a state-of-the-art center-hung display. The focal point of the display features four ProStar® video displays providing high-resolution, crystal clear, live and recorded video and replay. Each of these displays measures approximately 9 feet 6 inches high by 18 feet wide with 10 millimeter (.39 inch) line spacing and is configured in the 16:9 aspect ratio to accommodate the display of high definition (HD) video. Below the video displays, four additional digital displays will inform and entertain fans with full-color animation, game information and statistics. Separating the digital displays are decorative structures identifying and illuminating the Lady Vol logo. Lighting up the top and bottom of the center hung board are ProAd® digital ring displays providing complete message flexibility. In addition to the main center-hung scoreboard, Daktronics LED technology is utilized in six LED ProTable® digital scorer’s tables. The fully digital scorer’s tables have the ability to display real-time team and player statistics, colorful graphics, exciting animation and video clips. These ProTable® displays utilize 10 millimeter (.39 inch) LED pixel pitch for exceptional image clarity and wide-angle viewing. Fans and athletes are informed by four large fixed digit scoring displays mounted in each corner of the arena. Each of these displays measures approximately three feet high by 41 feet wide and offer basic game information. The Thompson-Boling Assembly Center and Arena is one of the largest on-campus arenas in the country…and the toughest place in the country to leave with a win versus the University of Tennessee Lady Vols. Just ask 324 of the Lady Vols’ last 331 home opponents entering the 2010-11 season. In recent years, UT women’s basketball has enjoyed a number of lengthy home winning streaks. On Dec. 28, 2003, Texas snapped a 24-game run that dated back to the 2001-02 season. A previous streak of 26 consecutive wins in the home confines ended on Jan. 5, 2002, with an 86-72 loss to Connecticut. The Lady Vols broke the NCAA homecourt winning streak record with 69 consecutive victories before Connecticut spoiled the streak with a 59-53 win in game number 70 on Jan. 6, 1996. Tennessee claimed 64 straight home SEC victories before third-ranked LSU snapped the streak with a 72-69 victory – its first ever in Knoxville – on Feb. 9, 2006. The Lady Vols take a 19-game home winning streak into the 2010-11 season. The Thompson-Boling Arena is a mammoth structure, located on the banks of the Tennessee River. It was named for B. Ray Thompson and retired UT President Edward J. Boling. The building is 448 feet long and 310 feet wide. It contains more than 411,000 square feet of floor space and more than 17 million cubic feet of space. Following renovations in 2007, the Thompson-Boling Arena now has an official seating capacity of 21,678. As part of a $19 million renovation of the arena prior to the 2007-08 season, 32 luxury suites were added to the existing north balcony along with a loge area just below the suites that included 166 side court seats. A $3 million center hung scoreboard, new black seats and several concourse refurbishments were also part of the renovation. The enormous facility houses the Tennessee Lady Vol basketball offices. Ticket facilities are located on the Phillip Fulmer Way level on the west end of the building. A continuous-ring concourse encircles the building, permitting entrance to eight restrooms, six concession areas and 32 portals that lead to the arena. The playing floor level provides access to team dressing rooms, the press rooms and storage rooms. The distance from the playing floor to the roof is 120 feet, the equivalent of a 12-story building. The structure contains 142,000 square feet of roof area, which is approximately three and one-quarter acres.

Nearly every season that the Lady Vols have played in the arena – attendance records have gone by the wayside. In 1998-99, the Lady Vols played before the largest average home crowd in the history of women’s collegiate basketball as 16,565 spectators clicked through the turnstiles at each of the Lady Vols’ 14 home games. In all, 231,915 fans viewed home games in Knoxville. During the 1997-98 season, Tennessee raised the roof with a bunch of collegiate attendance records. On Jan. 3, 1998, the Lady Vols entertained a new women’s collegiate record 24,597 fans for the game with the Connecticut Huskies. A month later, the first advance sell-out in UT Women’s Athletics history occurred when the Lady Vols were set to meet Old Dominion in Knoxville. For the record, 24,373 fans attended the UT-ODU game. The all-time attendance mark was reset during the 2001-02 season when 24,611 fans visited the arena for a #1/#2 clash between UT and Connecticut. It was again reset on Jan. 7, 2006, when the Huskies came to Knoxville in front of 24,653 spectators. The women’s basketball attendance mark was established at the 2002 NCAA Final Four when 29,619 people filled the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, for the championship game. The Lady Vols started the record-breaking trend in women’s collegiate basketball attendance in 1987. That season, the Lady Vols broke the (then) world record for single game attendance at a women’s basketball game with 24,563 at the Tennessee versus Texas game on Dec. 9, 1987. Three years later, the UT Women’s Athletics Department established new NCAA Women’s Final Four attendance marks on March 30 and April 1, 1990, with a total paid attendance of 39,490 for the three-game event. The turnstile count of 34,196 (17,601 semis/16,595 finals) also broke all other attendance marks.

THOMPSON-BOLING ARENA LADY VOL LOCKER ROOM

Completed in 1989 and renovated during the summer of 1998, the Tennessee Lady Volunteer basketball locker room was already regarded as the finest women’s collegiate facility in the country. That’s why it may surprise observers and frustrate opponents when they learn that the area was upgraded to an even higher level. Approximately 1,500 square feet were added to the locker room in the summer of 1998, bringing the total square footage to an eye-popping 4,500 square feet. Upon entering, visitors will be amazed at the 900-square-foot living room and recreation area, easily the centerpiece of the redesign. This home away from home for the studentathletes includes lounge seating and occasional tables, an enormous projection screen TV for team viewing, along with custom trophy cases. Meanwhile, the recreation area houses an orange felt pool table, several video game systems, tables and chairs for studying or eating, a wall-mounted television and yet another custom trophy case. Both of these areas showcase the unparalleled Lady Vol success story from the past to the present with displays containing photos of all eight National Championship teams, every Lady Vol Final Four entry, SEC Championship squads and highlights of the various teams’ visits to the White House. In addition, these rooms feature architectural pilasters of natural oak with brass lettering celebrating Tennessee’s program and its unprecedented eight national crowns. Central to the room is a huge circular support pillar, which is traditionally signed by graduating players immediately after commencement ceremonies on the floor the of spacious Thompson-Boling Arena. One hundred percent of all Lady Vol basketball players who complete their eligibility have graduated or are completing their degree requirements. Another feature to the facility is a 550-square-foot team meeting and film room that includes Regal Cinema seating for the players, and a 60-inch plasma flat screen television. The room also displays the impressive individual honors of current and former team members, along with pictures of UT AllAmericans and Olympians -- more than any other school in the country for women’s hoops. Prior to the 1998 renovation, the locker room received a complete facelift in 1995-96 with the addition of custom wall-to-wall carpeting, a leather sectional sofa and assorted chairs, a state-of-the-art sound system, and a home theatre/surround sound big screen television. However, these amenities pale in comparison to what the Lady Vols will enjoy as they head into what they hope will be another successful campaign. Other spaces featured in these palatial digs include a kitchen with a microwave and well-stocked refrigerator, a guest restroom, manager’s office and a separate area for storage. Further down the hall is the training and taping area for basketball, the athletic trainer’s private office and a physician’s examining room. Around one more corner is a large dressing area for the players, complete with individual cubicles. Connected to this area are individual showers, whirlpools and restroom facilities. The atmosphere is made homey with plush carpeting and fine furniture throughout with the predominant colors being orange, white and columbia blue. Over the past several years, custom rugs were made highlighting each of the NCAA Championships.

SEC Championship team pictures, along with those of Lady Vol Olympians and AllAmericans don the walls around a Lady Vol pool table.

PRATT PAVILION In October 2006, Tennessee Athletics had a ground-breaking ceremony to officially recognize construction on the Pratt Pavilion, the state-of-art basketball practice facility named in UT alumnus Larry F. Pratt’s honor for his $5 million lead gift to the basketball programs. The Pratt Pavilion, which opened in the fall of 2007, houses two fullsize gymnasiums, one for each of the men’s and women’s basketball teams, as well as space for an athletic training room, a weight room, a film study room and a place to host recruits. “Lady Vol basketball has a history of tradition and success. Pratt Pavilion will help improve an already outstanding basketball program,” said Joan Cronan, women’s athletics director. Directly connected to the arena, Pratt Pavilion has convenient ground level parking. The 70,000-square-foot structure has four short courts within each of the two full-size courts. The facility is equipped with secured practice facilities, spacious locker rooms and recruiting rooms as well. Balconies at the south side of the building overlook the practice courts. The west façade of the building is glassed from the first floor to the second floor, allowing visibility of gallery and display areas from the street. The building itself is a significant additional element to the picturesque south entrance to the University of Tennessee campus. Pratt Pavilion had a total project cost of $16 million, funded entirely through private gifts. Lead donor Pratt’s commitment in April 2006, coupled with leadership gifts from other campaign donors, including Jim Haslam, Brenda Lawson and Robbie Nutt, enabled Tennessee to move forward with the project. This is not Pratt’s first donation. In the 1990s he honored his father Floyd by creating an endowed scholarship in his name as a member of the Nathan Dougherty Society. He also was recognized at the Tennessee vs. Georgia football game in 2003 for a $1 million donation to the STEPUP Campaign. Pratt, an Athens, Tenn., native, currently resides in McLean, Va. He graduated from the University of Tennessee in 1972 from the college of business and serves as president and CEO of First Savings Mortgage Corporation, the largest private mortgage banker in Washington D.C. “I have a long-time appreciation for the standard of excellence Pat Summitt has established for Tennessee and I have confidence that Bruce Pearl is the right coach to lead the men’s program to the same level,” said Pratt. “We’ve got to make sure that they have all the tools they need to recruit the best possible student-athletes and develop their skills to a championship level.”

THE (#1) SEED HAS BEEN PLANTED

You can call it longevity. You can call it coaching and performance. You can call it strength of schedule. Whatever you call it, the University of Tennessee has earned 20 number-one seedings all-time in the NCAA Tournament since 1982. Additionally, UT has been seeded number two on four occasions, number three, three times and numbers four and five just once. From 1988-96, the Lady Vols had nine consecutive number one seedings. Only 27 schools have ever received number one seeds over the years.

The breakdown: Atlantic Coast (16-3) Atlantic Sun (1-0) Atlantic 10 (6-1) Big Ten (6-2) Big 12 (7-1) Big East (13-5) Big South (2-0)

The few. The proud. The NCAA Champions. The few. The proud. The NCAA Champions. Since Pat Head Summitt arrived in Knoxville in 1974, only 156 women have been selected to wear the Orange and White of the University of Tennessee Lady Volunteers. Of that elite group, every player who has completed her eligibility at UT has played in at least one Final Four during her career. Fifty-eight players have earned the distinction of being an “NCAA Champion” during their playing days at the University of Tennessee. That’s practically 40 percent! And that is truly remarkable. Additionally, forty percent of the 58 players have brought home two or more titles. A total of 12 coaches have helped to bring the eight titles to the Knoxville campus. The common denominator of the eight championships with Coach Summitt is associated head coach Holly Warlick. In her first tenure with the Lady Vols, Mickie DeMoss claimed six rings (1987, 1989, 1991, 1996, 1997 and 1998). Former assistants Al Brown (1996, 1997 and 1998) and Nikki Caldwell (2007, 2008) are the only former aides with numerous titles. Current assistant Dean Lockwood picked up his first national titles as a Lady Vol coach in 2007 and 2008. Seven graduate assistant coaches have had the opportunity to experience one title each.

2011 NCAA TOURNAMENT Thompson-Boling Arena NCAA Tournament Records

2011 NCAA First and Second Rounds in Knoxville The University of Tennessee Women’s Athletics Department is pleased to serve as host of the 2011 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball First and Second Rounds at Thompson-Boling Arena. For members of the media assigned to cover the event, the items listed below should help provide key information to those who need to obtain credentials and work these rounds of the tournament. We look forward to your visit to Knoxville. Game Dates The 2011 NCAA First and Second Round games in Knoxville will be played at UT’s Thompson-Boling Arena on March 19 & 21. There will be two first round games taking place on March 19 and one second round game on March 21. The two First Round games will start at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. ET on March 19 and the one Second Round game will tip-off at 7 p.m. ET on March 21. Media Credentials National media requesting credentials to cover tournament games in Knoxville must apply online at www. NCAA.com/media. The online site will allow media representatives the option of choosing the site they wish to cover and will provide information for reservations at the media headquarters hotel and parking passes. Media representatives will be supplied applicable deadlines. Applying media representatives will be notified via e-mail in regard to the confirmation or denial of their application. Credentials will not be mailed. Individuals must present government-issued photo identification at credential distribution to receive credentials and shall be required to show a photo ID each time they enter the facility. Media Entrance The media entrance to Thompson-Boling Arena is on the southeast corner of the building on the lower level, adjacent to parking garage G10. Media Press Conferences All press conferences will be held in the Ray Mears Room, which is located at court level on the west end of Thompson-Boling Arena, directly across from the media work room. Post-Game Interview Policies Following the cooling-off period, the coaches and designated student-athletes will be brought to the interview area located in the Ray Mears Room. The period begins when the head coach enters the locker room and will be 10 minutes for the losing team and 15 minutes for the winning team. A coach may shorten the cooling-off period, but may not extend it. The locker room shall be open to the media for 30 minutes after the cooling-off period ends, providing media representatives are present the entire time. The losing coach and designated student-athletes will be escorted to the postgame news conference room first; the winning coach and designated student-athletes will follow at the conclusion of the losing team’s interview. Media Workroom The media workroom will be located at the northwest corner of the arena at court level, and will be open on practice days and will open three hours before game time. In addition to an area in which to work, the workroom serves as the distribution location for all participating institution regular and postseason media guides, notes and statistics, as well as game specific box scores, notes, quotes and additional championship information. Media Services The University of Tennessee will provide complete in-game statistical services as well as coach and player quotes from all news conferences during the NCAA First and Second Rounds. All those documents will be available in the media workroom and stats will be distributed courtside as well as to the post-game news conferences. A faxing service will also be offered upon request.

EIGHT- T IM E NAT IONAL CHAMPION S


LADY VOL NATIONAL CHAMPIONS

2008 2007 National Champions National Champions

On April 8, 2008, the “under-rated” Tennessee Lady Vols captured their eighth national title, defeating Stanford 64-48. Incredible defensive pressure by UT forced 25 Cardinal turnovers which the Big Orange converted into 26 points. “They came out with a great mentality to play hard, especially on the defensive end,” Pat Summitt said. “On offense, we got more people involved, but it was our defense that got it done.” Tennessee standout Candace Parker, despite playing with a dislocated shoulder, scored 17 points and grabbed nine rebounds to help the Lady Vols capture their second straight championship, but unlike earlier games in the tournament when she had to carry the Lady Vols, her supporting cast came through. Shannon Bobbitt scored 13 points and Nicky Anosike added 12 points, eight rebounds and six steals for the Lady Vols. Freshman Vicki Baugh had eight points before tearing her ACL in the second half. Bobbitt scored all of her points in the first half as the Lady Vols jumped out to a 37-29 advantage. Trailing by one early, Tennessee used a 13-4 run to take a 17-9 lead midway through the half. Bobbitt hit two three-pointers and made a nifty layup to cap the spurt. The teams traded baskets before two free throws by Bobbitt gave the Lady Vols a 35-25 lead their biggest of the half. Parker didn’t shoot nearly as many jumpers as usual, instead taking the ball to the basket on an array of moves. She converted one steal in the second half into a pretty layup that gave the Lady Vols a 10-point advantage. She then followed it up with a three-point play on a driving layup. The Cardinal, who had a season low for points, would get no closer than eight the rest of the way. With the game in hand and a minute left, Parker went to the Tennessee bench for the final time, holding up four fingers on each hand to signify the eight titles the Lady Vols have won. “One is disputable, but two, you can’t stumble onto two national championships, so we’re pretty good,” Parker said.

On April 3, 2007, the Tennessee Lady Vols captured an elusive seventh national title, beating Rutgers to the ball for second and third shots in a 59-46 win to reclaim their customary place above all other programs. Parker scored 17 points to lead her squad to a 34-3 final record, but the tournament’s most outstanding player got plenty of help from Shannon Bobbitt who scored 13 points — nine of them on three treys in a lightning-quick span in the second half — and Nicky Anosike had 16 rebounds for the Lady Vols, who had 24 offensive boards. After building a 16-point lead and then holding off a late push by Rutgers, the Lady Vols could finally celebrate, dribbling out the final 30 seconds under the Rutgers basket until Tennessee’s players, some in tears, danced at midcourt as orange, blue and gold confetti fell from above. “To win anything you have to be a tight team,” Summitt said. “They believed in each other and they all had one goal, to be here in Cleveland and cut down the nets. I’m real, real proud of this team.” A three-pointer by Rutgers ended a 7-0 UT run that brought the Scarlet Knights to 50-42, but Parker made six straight free throws in 37 seconds to make it 56-44 with 1:08 left. As she went down the floor, Parker looked at the bench where senior Sidney Spencer was crying, knowing all the hard work during the offseason would end the best way possible. The 2007 NCAA tournament ended the same way it has nearly one-third of the time since it started — with Tennessee setting up ladders to cut down the nets.

LADY VOL NATIONAL CHAMPIONS

1998 1997 National Champions National Champions

The 1998 Tennessee Lady Vols will be remembered as history-makers. A perfect 39-0 record and the most wins ever in women’s collegiate basketball… an NCAA unprecedented three consecutive titles… and the systematic blowout night-after-night of the opposition. When the team finally reached the NCAA title game against a dear old rival in Louisiana Tech, the contest started out tight with UT taking an 8-6 lead. Then “the greatest team ever to play the game,” according to Louisiana Tech head coach Leon Barmore, exploded out to a 34-11 run over the next seven minutes. The points were coming in bunches to the tune of 63% field goal accuracy as these Lady Vols were on a mission. By the halftime break, Tennessee led 55-32 and had registered an NCAA record for the most points scored in a half at the Final Four. Leading the way for UT in game 39 were the Three Meeks – MVP Chamique Holdsclaw, Tamika Catchings and Semeka Randall— who collectively tallied 62 points and 25 rebounds in the Lady Vols’ 93-75 victory. Holdsclaw, who scored 25 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, won the top player honors in the final game. She was joined on the All-Tournament Team by Catchings, who recorded 27 points in her first title game, and an honorary “Meek”, Kellie Jolly, who added a career-high 20 points. With the win, the Lady Vols earned their sixth national title, played in their eighth championship game and became the first team to win three consecutive NCAA titles.

No team had ever won the NCAA championship coming in with more than six losses. But proving that it’s wise to save your best for last, Tennessee took its fifth NCAA championship and second straight title with a 68-59 win over Old Dominion despite entering the tournament with a 23-10 record. “Of all our runs to a championship, this one is really the most unexpected,” said coach Pat Summitt. “It came from a team with tremendous heart and desire.” Tennessee took control quickly at the start of the title game, jumping out to a 20-8 lead. By halftime, the Lady Vols still had a comfortable lead, 34-22. In the second half, Old Dominion clawed its way back, taking its first lead at 44-43 with 9:06 left in the game. The Lady Monarchs extended the lead to two, 49-47, before Chamique Holdsclaw led the Lady Vols on a 12-2 run to put the game away for Tennessee. Holdsclaw was a unanimous choice as the most outstanding player, as she poured in 24 points and seven rebounds. Six of her points came during the decisive run at the end of the game. Joining Holdsclaw on the All-Championship team was Kellie Jolly, who only scored five points, but set a championship record with 11 assists in the final game and a Final Four record with 20. With the win, the Lady Vols earned their fifth national title, played in their seventh championship game and became only the second team to win consecutive championships. (Southern Cal., 1983 and 1984).

EIGHT- T IM E NAT IONAL CHAMPION S


LADY VOL NATIONAL CHAMPIONS

1996 1991 National Champions National Champions

It seemed only fitting that the Lady Vols would win another NCAA crown in the “Queen City” of Charlotte, N.C. And it was equally fitting that the Lady Vols’ fourth NCAA title would come over a fierce SEC rival in the Georgia Lady Bulldogs, 83-65. After the emotionally draining overtime win versus Connecticut, the skeptics wondered if UT would have enough emotional energy left for the title game. They did...and then some. Although Georgia held a modest three point lead early in the game and led by two with 14:11 to go in the first half, it would be their only lead in the title contest. UT senior Latina Davis put the handcuffs on Player of the Year Saudia Roundtree in the first half as the Lady Vols grabbed an early nine point lead, 28-19 with 7:36 to go in the first half. Georgia recovered to trail by just five at the half, 42-37. In the first three minutes of the second half, UT took off and never looked back. Abby Conklin’s trey (her first of four) with 14:55 left gave UT a 16-point lead, 57-41. Davis upped the ante to a 21 point lead with 2:25 showing, 81-60. The celebrating started early as the Final Four MVP, Michelle Marciniak, and AllTournament Team members Chamique Holdsclaw and Tiffani Johnson left the game to wildly cheering fans. Davis, who held Roundtree to 17 points below her average, was UT’s quiet heroine. On the night, Holdsclaw and Johnson tallied 16 points to lead UT, while Conklin added 14 points, Pashen Thompson a dozen, and Marciniak 10 in the final game of her career.

Vindication was finally Tennessee’s in the 1991 NCAA women’s final, as the Lady Vols downed a talented Virginia Cavalier club, 70-67, in the first NCAA Final Four overtime title game. Virginia had eliminated Tennessee before it could reach the 1990 Women’s Final Four – which just happened to be held in Knoxville. But the Lady Vols took New Orleans and their third NCAA title in five years. The first half was tight, with Tennessee holding a paper-thin 27-26 advantage at the intermission. But the Lady Vols opened up a small lead in the second half. Small lead; small comfort. Virginia’s Dawn Staley, who was named the most outstanding player, led the Virginia comeback to tie the game at 60 at the end of regulation. But the overtime belonged to Tennessee and Dena Head, who scored a championship record 28 points in the final. Wade Trophy winner Daedra Charles added 19 points and 12 boards for Tennessee and joined Head on the All-Championship Team. Tennessee’s effort was also aided by the play of Lisa Harrison, who poured in eight points and 13 boards. With the victory, the Lady Volunteers kept their streak of odd-year championships going. Tennessee also won national titles in 1987 and 1989.

LADY VOL NATIONAL CHAMPIONS

1989 1987 National Champions National Champions

It was a battle of Southeastern Conference powerhouses – Tennessee versus Auburn for all the marbles. The Lady Vols looked to regain the national title they earned in 1987. Although they were up against a Lady Tiger team that had made its second straight national championship final, Tennessee took home its second NCAA championship in three years with a 76-60 win. Playing in her triumphant final game, All-America forward Bridgette Gordon treated the 9,758 spectators to a spectacular 27-point performance, tying a championship-game record. She also collected 11 boards on the way to most outstanding player honors. Gordon’s seven first-half baskets helped the Lady Vols to a 35-27 halftime lead. Auburn was able to stay close, cutting the score to 50-47. But after a timeout, the Lady Vols went on a 13-4 run to put the game out of reach. The keys to the victory were the battle of the boards, where Tennessee outrebounded Auburn 45-30, and the free throw line, where Tennessee shot 20-26, while Auburn was 8-12. Sheila Frost joined Gordon on the All-Championship team. Playing in her final game at Tennessee, Frost had six points and 12 boards. Also coming up big for the Lady Vols in the final was Dena Head, with 19 points.

Tennessee may have failed in its first bid at the national championship, but the second time was the charm for the Lady Vols. Tennessee thumped Louisiana Tech, which was vying for its second title, 67-44. “Well, the monkey’s off my back,” head coach Pat Summitt said. “I do not think I could go without recognizing that it was a tremendous team effort…has been for the last three weeks. This team has played as hard and as smart as I could ask any team to play.” The Lady Vols built a 33-24 halftime edge and never looked back. Seven minutes into the second half, Tennessee had increased its lead to 14, 47-33, and the rest was history as Tennessee took its first NCAA title. Tennessee attempted 19 more field goals and grabbed 11 more rebounds than the Lady Techsters. A championship-game record crowd of 9,823 watched Tonya Edwards net 13 points and grab seven rebounds en route to most outstanding player honors. Two additional Lady Vols contributed 13 points – Bridgette Gordon and Sheila Frost. Gordon joined Edwards on the All-Championship team, as she also led the Tennessee carom parade, pulling down a game-high 12 rebounds.

SEC By The Numbers

With eight national championships, ten runner-up finishes, a nation-leading 34 Final Four appearances and 96 first-team All-America honors, the SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE stands firmly as the nation’s premier intercollegiate women’s basketball conference. The SEC has posted impressive non-conference records in the last decade. The SEC compiled a 121-45 (.729) non-conference record during the 2009-10 season. Since the 1990 season, the SEC has compiled a 2774-844 (.767) record against other conferences. The league has recorded 150+ wins during eight seasons and has never recorded a non-conference winning percentage below .723. SEC teams have earned appearances in 25 of 29 NCAA Final Fours, an accomplishment unmatched by any other league. Overall, SEC squads have filled 34 of the 116 Final Four berths, including having two Final Four teams in 1988 (Auburn, Tennessee), 1989 (Auburn, Tennessee), 1995 (Georgia, Tennessee), 1996 (Georgia, Tennessee), 1998 (Arkansas, Tennessee), 2004 (LSU, Tennessee), 2005 (LSU, Tennessee), 2007 (LSU, Tennessee) and 2008 (LSU, Tennessee). SEC teams have made 18 appearances in a nation-high 16 NCAA Championship games, winning eight NCAA Championships (Tennessee: 1987, 1989, 1991, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2007 and 2008). The league also had the distinction of providing both national finalists twice in its history in 1996 (Tennessee 83, Georgia 65) and in 1989 (Tennessee 76, Auburn 60). SEC teams have won 329 NCAA Tournament games against 168 losses (.662) for an average of 11.3 NCAA wins per year. In addition, all 12 current members have appeared in the NCAA Tournament. The SEC has paced the pack in NCAA tournament bids 21 times in its 29-year history. The SEC was the first league to ever have eight teams invited to the NCAA Tournament, doing so in 1999 and 2002. The SEC was also the first league to ever have seven teams invited to the NCAA Tournament and earned this honor a nation-leading seven times (1986, 1991, 1995, 1996, 1997, 2003, 2004). The SEC is one of a handful of leagues to have won three national tournament titles with eight NCAA, two WNIT and three NWIT. Along with the eight NCAA championships won by Tennessee, Arkansas (1999) and Auburn (2003) captured the current Women’s NIT titles. But the first-ever SEC national title belongs to Georgia, winners of the 1981 NWIT which predates the current NCAA tournament. LSU (1985) and Kentucky (1990) each won NWIT titles. Both Arkansas (1987) and South Carolina (1979) won the WNIT as members of their previous conferences.

increasing amount of work administering the league, the office of Commissioner was established by its member institutions in 1940. Former Mississippi governor Martin Conner was named as the first commissioner, a post he held until 1948. Following Conner were Bernie Moore (1948-66), A.M. Coleman (1966-72), Dr. Boyd McWhorter (1972-86), Dr. Harvey Schiller (1986-90), and Roy Kramer (19902002). Mike Slive is currently Commissioner of the Southeastern Conference and its 12 member institutions. The first SEC champions were crowned in 1933 in baseball, basketball, football and outdoor track. Cross country, golf, swimming, tennis and indoor track were added later. The SEC began recognizing women’s championships during the 197980 academic year. The conference office officially took over regulation of women’s athletics on Sept. 1, 1984. The SEC currently regulates nine men’s sports and eleven women’s sports. Baseball, basketball, football, golf, swimming and diving, tennis and track (indoor, outdoor, and cross country) are currently sanctioned for men. The women’s sports are basketball, golf, gymnastics, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, track (indoor, outdoor, and cross country) and volleyball.

TOURNAMENT INFORMATION

On Feb. 7, 1980, the first SEC women’s basketball tournament began play. It ended four days later with Tennessee defeating Ole Miss for the title. Fast forward 30 years later and the SEC Tournament is still enjoying success and increased popularity. Beginning with its inception and through 1986, the tournament was held at campus sites. The tournament was then sent to Albany, Ga., which served as the site for six years from 1987-92. The tournament then moved to Chattanooga, Tenn., where it was held from 1993-2000, with the exception of 1998 when the tournament moved to Columbus, Ga. Since 2001 the tournament has enjoyed many new sites, including Memphis (2001), Nashville (2002, 2004, 2008), North Little Rock, Ark. (2003, 2006, 2009), Greenville, S.C. (2005) and Duluth, Ga. (2007, 2010). This year the SEC Women’s Basketball Tournament makes its way to Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. The winner of the 11-game tournament will receive the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. The tournament seeds and conference champion will be determined by the 16-game regular-season SEC schedule. The top four seeds earn a first-round bye. The 2011 SEC Women’s Basketball Tournament will once again enjoy live television coverage. FSN continues its dedication to SEC events by televising all first round and second round games. This year, ESPNU will carry both semifinal games and ESPN2 will air the championship game.

TENNESSEE’S SEC CHAMPIONSHIPS In the Southeastern Conference, typically rated as the nation’s toughest league, the Tennessee Lady Vols have enjoyed incredible success through the years. Since 1980, UT has laid claim to a phenomenal 15 regular season championships. What’s even more amazing is the fact that the Lady Vols won seven of the championships with a perfect record in league play in 1993, 1994, 1995, 1998, 2001, 2003, 2004 and 2007. Entering the 2004-05 season, Tennessee had won an unprecedented seven regular season SEC titles in a row dating back to 1998. During that time, Coach Pat Summitt’s teams posted a ridiculous 95-3 overall record in SEC play – a 97 percent winning mark. In 2004-05, 2005-06 and 2007-08 the Lady Vols went 13-1, 11-3 and 13-1, respectively, to finish second in the regular season, but avenged regular season champions LSU in the 2005, 2006 and 2008 SEC Tournaments.

ALL-TIME LADY VOLS: 1974-PRESENT IN MEMORY OF DR. FONDA BONDURANT

The Lady Vol basketball family suffered a great loss in the summer of 1994 when former player Dr. Fonda Bondurant died in a boating accident near Smithville, Tenn. Bondurant played for UT from 1975 to 1977 before giving up basketball to concentrate solely on her academics. Her passing marked the first death of any Lady Vol athlete since the founding of the UT Women’s Intercollegiate Athletics Department in 1976. A native of South Fulton, Tenn., Bondurant was an orthopaedic surgeon with Tennessee Orthopaedics of Lebanon. She graduated from the University of Tennessee in 1979, UT Medical School at Memphis in 1984, and completed her residency in Houston, Texas, in 1991. “The one thing about Fonda that really sticks out in my mind was her hard work on the basketball court and her dedication in the classroom,” Head Coach Pat Summitt said. “Her dream was to be a doctor, and she turned out to be a very skilled physician.” Bondurant played guard for Tennessee as a freshman and a sophomore and averaged two points and one rebound per game in 30 contests. She was a member of the first Lady Vol team to represent Tennessee at the National Championships. That squad finished in third place in Minneapolis in 1977. Fonda was survived by a number of dear, life-long friends, as well as her parents, Harvey and Arti Marie, and her brothers, Greg and Bryan.

TENNESSEE TRADITIONS: RETIRED JERSEYS

Athletes may enjoy many accolades during their playing days. Players can be named to all-conference and All-America teams. They may even go on to earn a spot on the USA National Team. The ultimate tribute, however, is reserved for only a chosen few—the retiring of their jerseys. Lady Vol basketball players have worn thirty-four different numbers over the years; five will never be worn again. Numbers 22, 23, 24, 30 and 32 have been retired to preserve the dedication and commitment that the last player to wear each of those numbers has displayed for Tennessee basketball.

No. 22 Holly Warlick

Guard • 1976-80 • Hometown: Knoxville, Tennessee The first Tennessee athlete, either male or female, to have her jersey retired was Holly Warlick. Number 22 was retired on Feb. 18, 1980, in a ceremony after Tennessee’s 89-72 win over Clemson in Stokely Athletics Center. A playmaking wizard for the Lady Vols from 1976-80, Holly earned All-America honors three times. At the time of the ceremony, she held UT records for most assists in a game (14), most steals in a game (9), and most assists in a season (225). Holly could not hang her uniform on the wall right away. She played six more games after the retirement party. The final time she donned No. 22 was in the AIAW National Championship game when the Lady Vols fell to Old Dominion, 68-53. During her years at Tennessee, the Lady Vols produced a 118-23 overall record, three trips to the Final Four and a first-ever SEC Tournament title. She later went on to become a member of the 1980 U.S. Olympic Team. Now a member of the Lady Vol coaching staff, Warlick’s No. 22 hangs in the hallway outside the women’s basketball office in Thompson-Boling Arena.

No. 30 Bridgette Gordon

Forward • 1985-89 • Hometown: DeLand, Florida Ten years later, the second Lady Vol basketball jersey was retired. Bridgette Gordon returned to Thompson-Boling Arena after a stellar career at Tennessee to see her No. 30 retired during halftime of Tennessee’s 76-70 win over Texas on Jan. 17, 1990. Bridgette led the Lady Vols to a 115-21 record during her four years at UT. She was the driving force behind an NCAA-record four consecutive trips to the Final Four as well as two NCAA and two SEC Championships. Bridgette was the first freshman ever to lead UT in scoring, and she earned co-SEC Rookie of the Year and All-SEC honors. The next year she led Tennessee to its first NCAA title, earned All-SEC honors again and was named to the All-Final Four team. She copped All-SEC honors and was named MVP of the SEC Tournament as a junior. She also earned her first of two Kodak All-America honors that year. After earning a gold medal as a member of the 1988 U.S. Olympic basketball team, Bridgette returned to Tennessee for her senior season. She led the Lady Vols to the 1989 NCAA title and was named MVP of the Final Four. She finished her career as the all-time leading scorer in NCAA Tournament history. Bridgette graduated in 1989 with a B.S. in political science. She was basketball’s nominee for the 1989 Honda-Broderick Award, which is symbolic for women’s academic and athletic achievement.

TENNESSEE TRADITIONS: RETIRED JERSEYS No. 32 Daedra Charles

Center • 1988-91 • Hometown: Detroit, Michigan When Tennessee hosted the SEC-Big 10 Challenge in Dec. 28, 1991, Daedra Charles became the next Lady Vol to have her jersey retired. Charles returned to Knoxville from Como, Italy, where she was playing professional basketball with former Lady Vol teammate Bridgette Gordon. Charles came to surprise Lady Vol head coach Pat Summitt by announcing the endowment of the Pat Head Summitt Scholarship, presented by Charles, Gordon and another former Lady Vol, Lisa McGill Reagan. Summitt, who was unaware of the endowment, had planned the retirement ceremony as a surprise for Charles. A two-time Kodak All-American at Tennessee, Daedra was the 1991 SEC Woman Athlete of the Year. She became the first player from the SEC to win the Wade Trophy, the highest honor in women’s basketball. All this came after leading Tennessee to its third NCAA title in five years. She finished her career seventh on the UT scoring list (1495), sixth in rebounding (858) and second in shots blocked (95), despite missing her freshman season as a Prop 48 student. Still, Daedra graduated in four years, earning a bachelor’s degree in child and family studies.

No. 23 Chamique Holdsclaw Forward • 1995-99 • Hometown: Astoria, New York During halftime of the Lady Vols’ 92-88 home triumph over archrival Connecticut on Feb. 1, 2001, the collegiate career of arguably the greatest women’s player to ever play the game was officially closed when Chamique Holdsclaw became just the fourth Lady Vol to have her jersey retired. The Naismith Player of the Century and one of only six four-time Kodak All-Americans in the history of women’s basketball, Holdsclaw led the Orange and White to a 131-17 overall record and an unprecedented three consecutive national championships from 1996-98, while establishing herself as the program’s all-time leader in scoring (3,025 points) and rebounding (1,295). The NCAA Tournament’s most outstanding player in 1997 and 1998, Holdsclaw still holds the record for points (479 points, 21.8 ppg) and rebounds (198 rebounds, 9.0 rpg) accumulated in tournament games. The first two-time winner of the Associated Press Player of the Year Award, Holdsclaw garnered 34 individual awards during her career, including 21 player of the year honors from a variety of organizations. In 2006, Holdsclaw was named to the NCAA 25th Anniversary Team. She was previously named to the Kodak 25th Anniversary Team in 1999.

No. 24 Tamika Catchings Forward • 1997-2001 • Hometown: Duncanville, Texas The fifth Lady Vol jersey to be retired belonged to Tamika Catchings in a halftime ceremony on Dec. 7, 2003, against Louisiana Tech. From the moment she stepped on the court in the number 24 orange and white jersey, we knew from her contagious smile that she was a special person, and from her deadly baseline-to-baseline hustling for all 40 minutes, a truly phenomenal player. This special six-foot, one-inch forward had the heart of a champion and could play anywhere on the court. Her UT career was shortened during her senior year when she went crashing to the floor with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in game 17 versus Mississippi State. Her list of awards was staggering, as she captured a slew of them while being tabbed as UT’s second four-time Kodak All-American. What she accomplished in the span of her collegiate career is the stuff of legend. She played in 127 games as a Lady Vol. Her assault on the record books is legendary for both scoring, with 2,113 points, and rebounding, 1,004 boards. Both marks rank her third all-time. She also finished her career second all-time in steals with 311 and blocked shots with 136. And remember, she missed half of her senior season. Her teammates will tell you how special it was to earn a blue adidas headband after Catchings went out with the injury. Earning one meant they hustled like “Catch” would have. The Eleanor Roosevelt League for the Hard of Hearing honored her in 1998 – as a special role model for youngsters and adults with hearing impairments. Her UT academic counselors will relate stories about Catchings graduating ahead of her class in December 2000.

DRI V E TO V I C TO RY L A N E

People in the Knoxville community will tell you of the countless hours she put in with youths from all walks of life – from playgrounds to hospitals. Now a WNBA All-Star for the Indiana Fever, Catchings added to her collection of accolades in the Summer of 2004 with a gold medal as a member of the USA Women’s Basketball Team at the Athens Olympic Games and in 2008 at the Beijing Olympic Games.

Candace Parker, Kara Lawson and Tamika Catchings teamed up to lead the USA to its fourth consecutive gold medal and its sixth gold medal overall at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Every USA Women’s Senior National Team to compete at the Olympics has featured at least one Lady Vol.

The 2008 Summer Olympic Games

Tamika Catchings wins her second Olympic gold medal.

Former Lady Vols Tamika Catchings, Kara Lawson and Candace Parker played integral parts in helping Team USA sweep its way to a fourth consecutive gold medal at the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, China. Lawson came off the bench to score 15 points on 5-of-5 shooting for the Red, White and Blue in the gold medal game to lead the U.S. to a 92-65 victory. Parker tacked on 14

points on 4-of-4 shooting. “I would never have guessed that I was ever the leading scorer for the gold medal game for the United States and win a gold medal,” Lawson said. “But I think that shows the unselfishness of our team. I think that shows the talent level we have.” For the Games, Lawson averaged 7.0 ppg and charted 24 assists along with eight steals while committing just seven turnovers. Parker averaged 9.4 ppg and 4.5 rpg, which was good for fifth and third, respectively, on Team USA. Her 27-of-44 shooting (61.4%) during the Olympics

was the second-best clip of all athletes. Catchings averaged 6.8 points and 4.4 rebounds for the Games to go with her 14 assists and 14 steals. “I think I realized on the podium what a year it has been. I am so blessed to be here, and it is truly special to share this with the other 11 women on the team,” said Parker. “We have all worked our entire lives to get to this moment. To experience this with this What a year for Candace Parker with an Olympic gold group, we just couldn’t have medal and a NCAA title in 2008. had a better team.” For the tournament, Team USA led all squads in both scoring offense (94.2) and scoring defense (56.6) on its way to an 8-0 record. The squad finished in the top two in 17 of 19 statistical categories. “I couldn’t picture another color medal around my Kara Lawson’s leadership off neck. Everybody set their sights up and worked so hard the bench was pivotal for the for it, and it’s so great to say you’re a gold medal winner,” USA in Beijing. added Parker.

BASKETBALL HALL OF FAME The Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame is certainly the stuff of which dreams are made. It wasn’t so very long ago that even the most ardent women’s basketball aficionados could not have envisioned, even in their wildest dreams, a place such as the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame; a place that would honor the past, celebrate the present, and promote the future of women’s basketball. But in June 1999, the dream became a reality as the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame opened its doors in Knoxville, Tenn. In addition to the grand opening of a showplace facility which houses numerous artifacts and interactive exhibits, the Hall of Fame welcomed its first class of inductees. Enshrinement in the Hall of Fame was truly a dream come true for the 25 individuals who comprised the inaugural class as they were honored for a lifetime of achievements as coaches, players, and contributors. The roll call of the Class of 1999 literally read like a women’s basketball “Who’s Who.” The University of Tennessee’s own Pat Head Summitt headlined a list of the premier names in the sport, which included the likes of Olympians Cheryl Miller, Anne Donovan, Ann Meyers Drysdale, Nancy Lieberman-Cline, and Uljana Semjonova and coaching greats Jody Conradt, John Head, Harley Redin, Billie Moore, and Jim Smiddy. Two former Tennessee Lady Vol Olympians and All-Americans – Patricia “Trish” Roberts and Cindy Noble Hauserman – followed Summitt into the Hall of Fame as members of the Class of 2000. Roberts and Noble Hauserman joined 22 other basketball luminaries in the Class of 2000 ceremonies. The Lady Vols were also represented when the third group of inductees was selected for the Class of 2001. Knoxville’s own Holly Warlick, a former Lady Vol Olympian and All-American, was tabbed for inclusion in the Hall as 10 more individuals took their rightful place among the Hall’s elite. When the Class of 2002 was inducted in an April gala event, it included former Lady Vol Olympian and All-American Cindy Brogdon along with five other worthy individuals joining the ranks of the Hall. In June 2007, UT Olympians and All-Americans Bridgette Gordon and Daedra Charles-Furlow were among six individuals enshrined in the ninth class of the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame. They were joined by the first media member to be inducted – Mel Greenberg. In 2008, former UT two-time All-

The Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, Knoxville, Tenn. American Jill Rankin Schneider earned a spot in the 10th class of inductees. During the summer of 2010, former Tennessee Women’s Athletic Director Gloria Ray was inducted into the Hall of Fame as a member of the 12th annual class. Ray is responsible for the design, development, construction and management of the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame and the first Women’s Athletic Director at UT. She helped establish the Lady Vols as a nationally recognized program and brand, and the University of Tennessee Lady Vol Leadership Award is named in her honor. She served as president of the Southeastern Conference Women’s Athletic Directors and helped establish the first women’s SEC basketball tournament. To date, 115 individuals have been inducted into the Hall including a total of nine from the University of Tennessee.

QUOTING COACH PAT SUMMITT – INDUCTION INTO THE NAISMITH HALL OF FAME – OCTOBER 13, 2000 What are your thoughts and feelings about the induction? “What an exciting weekend! I was anxious because of the induction into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass., and we started practice for the 2000-01 campaign the very next afternoon. I am also glad that my entire Tennessee coaching staff, Mickie DeMoss, Holly Warlick and Al Brown, were able to join me for the ceremony. They were among the over 30 people traveling to Springfield. My sister and two of my three brothers were in attendance, along with my mother and father-in-law, R.B. and son Tyler.” How does this honor of being inducted into the Hall of Fame rate? “What a wonderful achievement and honor. Throughout my time at UT, I have worked with a team comprised of administrators, the basketball staff, support staff and dedicated student-athletes. I am constantly reminded how fortunate I have been to be surrounded by a group that has embraced the sport of women’s basketball long before it became fashionable. The support that has always been provided to both myself and our team has been amazing.” What do you feel is your greatest personal achievement? “Survival, right? Actually, there is not one thing that stands out in my mind the most. However, the fact that we boast a 100% graduation rate for all players who competed for four years at Tennessee is a statistic I am very proud of. The relationships I have developed over 26 years of coaching are what I hold closely. They are what you have to show for the long hours at practice and time spent on the recruiting trail.” What are your own personal thoughts about the Hall of Fame induction? “Receiving this honor has made me step back and see where I am. It has helped me to see all that we have accomplished at the University of Tennessee over the past several decades and it shows me that the future is still bright for the Lady Vols. I love this game and want to continue my involvement with it. Being selected to the Hall has given me a lot of motivation for the season and the immediate future.” Why aren’t there more women’s basketball coaches in the Hall? “There are many outstanding women’s coaches who haven’t reached the level of 25 years yet. Some of the ones who come to mind right away include Tara VanDerveer at Stanford, Geno Auriemma at Connecticut and Leon Barmore at Louisiana Tech. Over the next few years I think there will be others to follow the path to Springfield.”

LADY VOLS IN WNBA ACTION

The 2010 WNBA season began with 10 former Lady Vols sporting the uniforms of a WNBA franchise. The 10 former Tennessee basketball stars were employed by eight different teams, including Nicky Anosike (Minnesota Lynx), Tamika Catchings (Indiana Fever), Shanna Zolman Crossley (Tulsa Shock), Chamique Holdsclaw (San Antonio Silver Stars), Alexis Hornbuckle (Tulsa Shock and Minnesota Lynx), Kara Lawson (Connecticut Sun), Candace Parker (Los Angeles Sparks), Ashley Robinson (Seattle Storm), Michelle Snow (San Antonio Silver Stars) and Sidney Spencer (New York Liberty). Since the WNBA burst onto the scene in 1997, the University of Tennessee has produced 12 first-round draft picks. The 2003 selections of Kara Lawson and Gwen Jackson as the No. 5 and No. 6 picks, respectively, moved UT ahead of UConn for most ever first-round draft picks. That mark was tied, however, after UConn’s Tina Charles was selected in the 2010 draft by the Connecticut Sun. Five of the eight teams that made the postseason displayed at least one former Lady Vol on roster with San Antonio boasting two. Seattle, which earned the West’s top seed by tying the best regular-season record (28-6) in the history of the league, featured Robinson. The Storm blazed through the playoffs 7-0 to win the 2010 WNBA title. Indiana, led by Catchings, claimed the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference but was just a game out of the top spot. The Fever lost in the semifinals to No. 2 New York. The Liberty, boasting former Lady Vol sharp-shooter Spencer, then lost to Atlanta in the Eastern Conference Finals. San Antonio, which acquired both Snow and Holdsclaw for 2010, was third in the West and lost to Phoenix in the semifinals. Los Angeles, fourth in the Western Conference, had Candace Parker on its roster during the playoffs, but she was inactive because she was recovering

In 2008, Candace Parker became the first player to win WNBA Rookie of the Year and WNBA Most Valuable Player honors in the same season.

Tamika Catchings captured her fourth WNBA Defensive Player of the Year award, while averaging 18.2 ppg for the Indiana Fever. from shoulder surgery. The three teams that did not have a former Lady Vol were the Eastern Conference No. 1 and No. 4 squads (Washington and Atlanta, respectively), and Western Conference No. 2 Phoenix. While leading the Indiana Fever to the playoffs, Catchings put up double-digit scoring outputs in 33 of 34 regular-season games, averaging 18.2 ppg, and led the league in steals (2.3 per game) for a record sixth time. With 708 career steals Catchings sits No. 2 all-time in WNBA thefts. She was selected to the All-WNBA First Team and dubbed WNBA Defensive Player of the Year for the second-straight year and a record fourth time overall. Candace Parker started the 2010 season brilliantly, averaging career bests in points (20.6) and rebounds (10.1) with seven double-doubles in 10 games. Unfortunately, on June 13 she sustained a dislocated left shoulder, the same one that ailed her at Tennessee, against Minnesota with 2:55 remaining in the second quarter. The injury required Parker, the 2008 WNBA MVP and rookie of the year, to have season-ending surgery. After two successful seasons with the Lynx, Anosike continued to shine during 2010 in Minnesota. She was second in the league in steals, averaging 2.0 per game, and notched five doubledoubles while contributing double-digit scoring 12 times. Anosike maintained healthy averages of 9.2 ppg and 6.8 rpg, while starting in 30 of 31 games. Snow and Holdsclaw both left Atlanta and signed with San Antonio, and both produced excellent seasons for the Silver Stars. Snow scored in double figures 17 times while starting 33 of 34 games, averaging 10.4 ppg, 6.2 rpg and a career-best 1.6 apg

Holdsclaw started all 29 games in which she played, scoring in double figures 21 times. The six-time WNBA All-Star chipped in 13.6 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 2.0 apg and 1.5 spg before tearing her right Achilles tendon on Aug. 15, ending her season. On April 14, Shanna Crossley was traded from San Antonio to Tulsa. The move proved to be beneficial for UT’s all-time leader in three-pointers, as she averaged career bests of 9.7 ppg and 1.6 apg for the Shock while starting 16 of 30 games. She scored in double figures 15 times and tallied a season-high 21 points at Madison Square Garden against the Liberty on Aug. 19 connecting on all five of her three-point attempts. A free agent after 2009, Lawson decided to sign with the Connecticut Sun for 2010. She started in 32 of 34 games and maintained a 2 to 1 assist-to-turnover ratio, good for fifth best in the WNBA. The eight-year veteran produced 17 double-digit scoring outputs and averaged 9.1 ppg, 2.3 rpg and 2.1 apg. Spencer, playing her second season with New York, played in 20 games. She connected on a career-high 53.3 percent of her threepointers for the season while averaging 2.6 ppg. She scored a season-high 10 points against Tulsa on Aug. 19 by draining 4-of-7 shots from the field. Hornbuckle moved with the Detroit Shock to Tulsa. While in Tulsa she started 10 of 15 games and stuffed the box scores by averaging 5.8 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 2.7 apg, 1.5 spg and 0.7 bpg. Tulsa was not her last stop, however, as she was traded to Minnesota on July 26. She struggled to adjust, though, and in 13 games

Ashley Robinson came off the bench to help the Seattle Storm capture the 2010 WNBA Championship over the Atlanta Dream. averaged only 3.0 ppg, 1.5 rpg and 1.3 apg for the Lynx. As part of the 2010 WNBA champion Seattle Storm, Robinson saw action in 30 games. She scored a season-high 10 points against Tulsa on August 7. The eight-year veteran averaged 1.4 ppg and 1.9 rpg while playing 8.2 mpg. Beginning in the summer of 2002, Pat Summitt became the first women’s coach in history to simultaneously hold a position in both the professional and collegiate ranks, as a consultant with the Washington Mystics. Summitt’s work contributed to the mystics’ turnaround from their 10-22 record in 2001 to a 17-15 mark and an appearance in the Eastern Conference Finals in 2002. Washington once again earned a spot in the playoffs in 2003, losing in the Eastern Conference Semifinals to the Connecticut Sun. Summitt stepped aside from her consulting efforts in 2005.
