2011 RECORD

[ NOV. 18 & 20 /// THOMPSON-BOLING ARENA /// KNOXVILLE, TENN. ]

TO NOTE... TWO TO TIE, THREE TO WIN OUTRIGHT

OPPONENTS AT A QUICK GLANCE

Following two road wins last weekend, the #14 Lady Vols have put themselves in prime position to win the Southeastern Conference. With a one match lead over Kentucky, two wins would assure the Big Orange of at least a share of the conference crown, while three victories would give UT the title outright. Tennessee has now won nine-straight matches, six of which have come on the road. Entering the weekend, UT is a perfect 10-0 at home. Last year, Tennessee won all but two home SEC matches in the friendly confines of Thompson-Boling Arena.

Tennessee hosts the top two teams in the SEC Western Division this weekend. Friday’s opponent, Arkansas, trails LSU by one match in the divsional standings as it has won six of its last eight matches. This is a crucial weekend for the Tigers, who are looking to claim their seventh consecutive SEC Western Division title. Earlier this season, UT won in Baton Rouge for the first since 2000.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT The No. 14 University of Tennessee Lady Vol volleyball team ended its regular season road slate with a pair of victories at Ole Miss and Alabama to improve to 24-3 overall and 16-1 in conference play. Just like the first time the two squads met earlier this season in Knoxville, the Big Orange defeated the Rebels in five sets. Sophomore Kelsey Robinson, junior Leslie Cikra and freshman Tiffany Baker all had at least 18 kills versus OM. Mary Pollmiller set a new career-high in assists, as she dished out 69 helpers and guided the UT offense to a season-high 79 kills. Two days later in Tuscaloosa, the Lady Vols swept the Crimson Tide to extend its winning streak to nine. Robinson recorded her 19th double-double on the year, as she had a team-best 12 kills and 12 digs. She is now UT’s all time kills leader during the 25-point rally scoring era with 466. Junior DeeDee Harrison hit a career-best .733 by connecting on 12 of her 15 swings. Pollmiller also set a career-high in kills with six, as she also paced the offense to again hitting over .300. The win at Alabama also marked the program’s 800th win.

PATRICK’S MILESTONE WINS

ROB PATRICK /// HEAD COACH Two-time National Coach of the Year Rob Patrick has developed a tradition of excellence since coming to Tennessee 15 years ago. Following his arrival at Rocky Top, Patrick has become one of the nation’s top coaches and helped the Lady Vols attain levels of success never before reached in Knoxville, as evidenced by NCAA Tournament berths in six of the last seven years, including a run to the Final Four in 2005. His nine-year stretch of winning seasons from 1998-2006 marks the longest-such run in program history, topping the previous high of seven, set from 1978-84. The Big Orange has won 20 or more matches in eight of the last 10 campaigns. Prior to Patrick’s

arrival at UT in 1997, the Lady Vols last recorded a 20-win season in 1988. Patrick joined the UT program in July of 1997 after spending the previous three seasons as an assistant coach with national powerhouse Stanford. From 1994 to 1996, he helped lead the Cardinal to a combined 92-6 record and two NCAA championships, including title-game victories over UCLA and Hawaii in 1994 and 1996, respectively. During that stint, Stanford never lost a home match en route to participating in the 1995 NCAA Final Four and winning three consecutive Pac-10 titles.

ALAN EDWARDS /// ASSISTANT COACH RACHEL COOPER /// ASSISTANT COACH

UT COACHES WIN TOTAL (LEADERS)

In July, former Iona College head coach Alan Edwards joined the UT staff as the team’s new assistant coach and recruiting coordinator. “I am very excited about adding Alan to our coaching staff,” Patrick said. “He brings a wealth of volleyball experience, both as a head coach and assistant coach from a number of Division-I programs, and is someone who I feel will be able to assimilate himself into our team very quickly.” Edwards was most recently the head coach at Iona for the past five seasons, where he led the Gaels to a 75-79 overall record and four appearances in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championships. During his time in New Rochelle, Edwards mentored one of the top defensive players in NCAA history in Allison Neiters. One of the top volleyball performers in Iona College and MAAC history, she shattered the Iona and conference career record for digs with 2,682, the fifth highest all-time total in the NCAA. Neiters was named the 2007 and 2008 MAAC Defensive Player of the Year and 2009 MAAC Libero of the Year, as well as the league’s Defensive Player of the Week 17 times during her career. She was also a three-time MAAC All-Academic Team and MAAC Honor Roll member, two-time CoSIDA Academic AllDistrict selection and earned Iona’s Academic Merit Award for holding a 3.50 or above grade point average.

After a standout career at Mississippi State as a player and coaching the past three seasons as an assistant at ETSU, Rachel Cooper joined the Tenneessee staff in May. Prior to her time as an assistant coach at ETSU, Cooper served as a graduate assistant with the Buccaneers, where she assisted in recruiting and coordinated team travel and community service. “The thing that most impresses me about Rachel is her work ethic,” Patrick said. “I’ve gotten to know her in recent years when she has come to work our camps and I am very excited that we have been able to add her to our coaching staff. She has experience in recruiting and understands the day-to-day responsibilities involved with running a high-level volleyball program. “Rachel was also an outstanding player in the SEC and knows exactly what it takes to be successful at the highest level in our conference. Her personality is very engaging and inviting, and I expect that our players will be able to easily relate to her.” A Roscoe, Ill., native, Cooper was a four-year letter winner and starting outside hitter for the Mississippi State Bulldogs. A two-year captain and team Most Valuable Player, Cooper was also the first Bulldog athlete ever named SEC Player of the Week. She finished her career third all-time in kills with 1,405.

STATS BOX /// NATIONAL RANKINGS

WHO’S BACK? Tennessee is returning three starters and a libero from last year’s roster: juniors DeeDee Harrison and Leslie Cikra, sophomore Kelsey Robinson and sophomore libero Ellen Mullins. Robinson was a SEC All-Freshman Team selection in her first season with the Lady Vols at outside hitter. Additional returners include sophomore setter Kylann Scheidt, senior setter Kelsey Mahoney and sophomore outside hitter Carly Sahagian.

WHO’S NEW? For one, most of the coaching staff is new. Patrick added two new assistants in the offseason: Alan Edwards, who was head coach at Iona; and Rachel Cooper, who was as an assistant at East Tennessee State. On the court, the Lady Vols feature plenty of new faces with the eighth-ranked recruiting class in the country. Freshmen include: • OH/MB Tiffany Baker (MaxPreps National Player of the Year; at No. 4, highest-ranked recruit to sign with Tennessee) • MB Shealyn Kolosky • DS Nikki Brice • S Mary Pollmiller • MB Mercedes Vaughn. • MB Stephanie Stoll (transfer from Washington)

JETER OUT FOR SEASON Senior leader Kayla Jeter will miss the entire 2011 season with a knee injury, associate athletics director for sports medicine Jenny Moshak reported. Jeter suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in her left knee at team practice Aug. 19. Recovery time is estimated between six and nine months.

Jeter enjoyed her best season as a junior in 2010, earning first-team All-SEC and AVCA All-America honorable mention honors. The Solon, Ohio, native ranked second on the squad with 340 kills (2.98/set) and led UT with 19 solo blocks.

PAST & PRESENT NOW WE’RE ROLLING After a heartbreaking loss at No. 25 Kentucky in a five-set thriller on Oct. 12, the Wildcats ended the Lady Vols 11-match winning streak. However, since that match, the Lady Vols have won nine-straight matches, and are in sole possesion of first place in the SEC standings. The UK loss ended UT’s streak of 11 straight SEC wins, which dated back to last season. This season, the 8-0 start by the Big Orange in league play tied for the best conference start in UT history.

TENNESSEE WIN STREAKS 1980: 22 1973: 20 2004: 14 2011: 11 1986: 11

SHE CAN DIG IT! Sophomore libero Ellen Mullins continues to be a force in the back row for the Lady Vols. Against UK, she dug a career-high 31 balls, which is the thirdmost in an SEC match this season. On the season, she ranks fifth in the conference with an average of 3.78 digs per set. Mullins bettered her previous career high by 11, as she notched 20 digs against Dayton. Her 31 digs are the fifth most by an SEC player this year, as she is just the fourth SEC player to reach the 30 dig mark and the 10th most by a Lady Vol in program history.

MR. 300 With a sweep over Georgia in the Southeastern Conference opener on Sept. 16, Tennessee Lady Vol head coach Rob Patrick recorded his 300th career win, all of which have come at UT. Patrick now has the highest winning percentage of any UT volleybal coach (.674), along with the most victories (316).

CAN’T MISS TELEVISION Tennessee games have aired 8 times on an ESPN network over the years and the Lady Vols are 5-3 in those matches. Overall, the team has won 12 of their last 15 televised matches. The Lady Vols are slated to appear on television at least one more time this season, when the team hosts LSU Sunday, in a match that will be broadcasted by CSS.

THE ORIGINAL ORANGE PANTS When UT head football coach Derek Dooley headed out of the Neyland Stadium tunnel in orange pants for the season-opener against Montana, he created a buzz around Knoxville, and even nationally. However, what some may not know is that Lady Vol head volleyball coach Rob Patrick had already donned the orange pants a year ago against Kentucky on Sept. 30, 2010. The match was televised on ESPNU . The Lady Vols swept the Wildcats in that match and Patrick’s orange pants record now stands at 2-1.

SCOUTING THE OPPONENTS  ARKANSAS Arkansas split weekend matches in its final home stand of the 2011 regular season. In the opener, Arkansas swept South Carolina (25-16, 25-15, 25-22) behind a team .430 hitting percentage, which tied for the fifth-best effort in school history. With 14 kills against the Gamecocks, Jasmine Norton moved into ninth place on Arkansas’ all-time kills list. Kelli Stipanovich had 11 kills against South Carolina and, in the process, became the 12th player in program history tally 1,200 career kills. The team’s 10th SEC win is the most by an Arkansas team since the conference moved to a double round-robin format in 2006. In Sunday’s match against No. 19 Florida, the Razorbacks jumped out to a two-set lead but lost in five sets. Norton led all players with 24 kills and moved into eighth place on Arkansas’ career kills list. The match was played in front of 1,255 fans at Barnhill Arena, the fifth-largest home crowd in program history.

 LSU LSU overcame a two-set deficit for the second time in 2011 to emerge with a 3-2 victory Sunday over South Carolina after dropping a four-set decision to No. 19 Florida Friday. With three matches remaining in the regular season, LSU carries a one-match edge over Arkansas in the SEC Western Division race. Madie Jones continued her strong offensive play and racked up 36 kills at a 4.00 per set average. She cranked a career-high 23 kills verses South Carolina and posted a team-best 13 kills during the Florida match. The Plano, Texas, native has taken over the team lead with 3.56 kills per set to rank sixth in the SEC. In the middle, Desiree Elliott and Michele Williams posted 24 kills apiece at a 2.67 per set ratio. Elliott has run her streak to 10 consecutive matches with double figure kills. She also has been a force on the defensive end and racked up 30 blocks during her last five outings. The Tigers have claimed six consecutive SEC Western Division titles since 2005.

WE DON’T MESS AROUND By notching their 20th win in just the 23rd match of the year versus South Carolina on Sunday, the Lady Vols have made it to the 20 win milestone in the third fastest amount of time in Tennessee history. The 1973 team won their first 20 in a row, while the 2004 squad reached 20 wins in 22 matches.

HOME SWEET HOME The Lady Vols have had a lot of success this season, no matter what town or venue they are playing in. However, the Lady Vols have protected their home court, as the team is a perfect 10-0 in matches played at Thompson-Boling Arena this year. Since the start of SEC play, UT has only dropped four sets in the friendly confines of TBA.

ABOVE .500 AGAIN Special thanks to James at TennesseeVolleyball.net for his great research and support of the program

By winning 16 of its first 17 conference matches this year, Tennessee is assured of having an SEC record of above .500. Head Coach Rob Patrick has now lead the Lady Vols to a .500 or better record in 13 of his 15 seasons at Rocky Top.

LAST SEASON VS. ARKANSAS - 10/8/10 FAYETTEVILLE: Down and seemingly out on numerous occasions, the No. 22 University of Tennessee volleyball team dug down deep and found just enough to escape with a come-frombehind, 22-25, 23-25, 25-20, 25-20, 17-15, victory on the road at Arkansas. The Lady Volunteers not only fought their way back from down two sets, but shook off a pair of match points to claim the win. Nikki Fowler posted her most dominating performance off the year, pounding out a season-high 24 kills on an amazing .440 hitting with only two errors in 50 swings. - 11/14/10 KNOXVILLE: The Tennessee volleyball team closed out the home portion of its 2010 schedule with an impressive sweep over Arkansas, 25-17, 25-15, 25-15. The Lady Volunteers never trailed in the match and posted their best defensive performance of the season, holding the Razorbacks to a season-low .000 hitting percentage. As a team, Tennessee hit .287 and nearly doubled-up Arkansas in the kills category with 41 to just 22 for the Razorbacks.

LAST SEASON VS. LSU - 10/10/10 BATON ROUGE: The Tennessee volleyball team dropped a hard-fought slugfest to 15thranked LSU on the road, falling 25-23, 30-28, 23-25, 25-20, at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. The two teams traded blows throughout, as the contest was a back-and-forth aff air featuring a total of 43 tie scores and 17 lead changes. Kelsey Mahoney notched a double-double, leading the team with 31 assists and tallying 12 digs. Kelsey Robinson added a strong effort with a matchhigh 24 digs - 11/12/10 KNOXVILLE: Playing a rare Friday matinee at Thompson-Boling Arena, the University Tennessee volleyball team both out-hit and out-blocked LSU, but dropped a tight 3-1 decision to the Tigers, 25-18, 23-25, 24-26, 21-25. Kelsey Robinson led the Lady Vol attack, recording her fourth career double-double while posting a career-high 16 kills to go along with 14 digs and a pair of blocks.

AN OPPONENTS NIGHTMARE

LADY VOL DUOS GET REWARDED

TWO IS BETTER THAN ONE

Sophomore Kelsey Robinson has been tremendous through 27 matches, producing 11 performances of at least 20 kills so far this season. In 10 of those matches, she has also recorded a double-double. (The list of double-doubles is in the box on the right.) No Lady Vol had as many 20-kill matches in all of 2010. All-American Nikki Fowler reached the mark four times last year to lead the team. Meanwhile, Robinson has already surpassed her double-double total from last season, when she had five matches with at least 10 kills and 10 digs. Perhaps not suprisingly, she is a national leader offensively. She leads the conference and ranks 16th nationally in kills per set (4.44). She also ranks 15th in Division I in points per set (5.10).

When a pair of Lady Vols in junior DeeDee Harrison and sophomore Carly Sahagian were bestowed conference honors on Sept. 26, it marked the first time since Oct. 20, 2008, that multiple Lady Vols were recognized by the SEC in the same week. That feat was accomplished again on Oct. 31, as as freshman Tiffany Baker was tabbed the conference’s Offensive Player of the Week., while classmate Mary Pollmiller earned Freshman of the Week honors. In Sept, Sahagian was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week, while Harrison earned the conference’s Defensive Player of the Week. Sahagian recording double-doubles in both matches versus Florida and South Carolina, including blasting a career-high 19 kills at UF. Harrison was a standout all-around performer, blocking a total of 12 attacks, with an average of 1.33 blocks per set. She als set career-highs in blocks assists and total blocks at USC. Offensively, she also notched double-digits in kills in both matches Baker became the sixth different Lady Vol this season to earn an SEC accolade. By having six different student-athletes be recognized, it is the most in UT history and ties for the most in SEC history (UF also had six players earn honors in 2007). Baker had double-doubles in each match and increased her season averages in almost every statistical category. Pollmiller had 41 assists in a sweep of South Carolina, aiding UT to a season-high .446 hitting percentage versus the Gamecocks.

With Harrison and Sahagian earning conference honors in the same week, and Baker and Pollmiller repeating that accomplishment, Tennessee is the only team this season to have multiple players earn SEC accolades in the same week. The last time the feat happened came in the final week of 2010, as Alabama’s Mary Catherine Aune and Brianne Vande Griend grabbed Freshman and Defensive POW honors.

NIFTY 50 Freshman Mary Pollmiller’s first year in Orange and White is off to a fantastic start. Because of injuries at the setter position, she has played all but a handful of points. Her average of 11.83 assists per set ranks first in the SEC and also ranks sixth nationally. She has 12 matches of at least 50 assists this season, the last one coming in a 3-2 Lady Vol victory at Ole Miss. This season she has also produced six double-doubles, registering 50 or more assists in three of those performances.

UT’S 800TH WIN Sunday’s 3-0 sweep over Alabama wasn’t only the the squad’s 24th win on the season, but it also was the 800th win for the Tennessee volleyball program. Lady Vol head coach Rob Patrick has been a huge reason for the success, as he has accumulated nine seasons of at least 20 victories, highlighted by a 32 win season in 2004.

NATIONALLY KNOWN Kelsey Robinson has been an offensive force this season, as her play has caught the attention of both the SEC and on the national level. On Oct. 10 she was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week, while a day later she grabbed Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week Honors for her efforts against Alabama and Ole Miss. Robinson notched double-doubles in both matches versus the Rebels and Crimson Tide and leads the SEC with 19 double-doubles. Versus the Rebels, Robinson recorded her second 20-20 game of the season, as she blasted 20 kills and had 20 digs. In a three-set sweep of Alabama, she registered 15 kills, 13 digs and three assists. She also received the SEC Offensive POW accolde on Sept. 5 after her performance at the Illinois State Farm Classic. She has also earned MVP honors at the Comcast Lady Vol Classic and Virginia Tech Invite, along with being named to the all-tournament team at the Illinois State Farm Classic.

TO NOTE... FOUR IS MORE THAN ANYBODY ELSE

RECORD SETTER

When the Southeastern Conference announced its most recent weekly award recipients on Monday, Nov. 14, a familiar name was bestowed the Freshman of the Week accolade. Tennessee freshman setter Mary Pollmiller earned the award for the fourth time this season, as she was magnificent in the weekend matches at Ole Miss and Alabama. Pollmiller dished out 104 assists and averaged 13.00 helpers per set, as the Big Orange hit over .300 in both matches. Against Alabama, the squad hit at a clip of .433, marking was the second-highest offensive output of the season. Versus Ole Miss, she recorded a careerhigh 69 assists, ranking as the second-highest total of assists by an SEC player this year, as UT blasted a season-high 76 kills. She first earned SEC Freshman of the Week on Sept. 12 following her outstanding setting performance in Blacksburg, Va. She is one of just two freshmen currently in the SEC top 10 in assists per set, as she ranks second in the league, averaging 11.73 assists per set. Her second honor came just three weeks later on Oct. 3, for her efforts at LSU and Arkansas. Against the Tigers and Razorbacks, Pollmiller had a hand in 80 percent of the kills, tallying 92 of Tennessee’s 102 assists and adding five kills of her own. On Oct. 31, Pollmiller was again tabbed the conference’s freshman of the week, as she had 41 assists in a sweep of South Carolina, aiding UT to a season-high .446 hitting percentage versus the Gamecocks. Her four accolades this year tie for the second most an SEC freshman has received since the conference began naming a Freshman of the Week in 2005. Jasmine Norton of Arkansas collected six awards during her freshman campaign in 2009.

Entering this past weekend, sophomore outside hitter Kelsey Robinson was just 29 kills short of breaking the 25-point rally scoring kills record held by Nikki Fowler, as she had 430 going into the matches at Ole Miss and Alabama. After blasting 24 kills against the Rebels, Robinson was just five shy of tying Fowler’s tally of 459 in 2009. She eclipsed that mark this past Sunday, as she recorded 12 kills against the Crimson Tide to bring her season total up to 466, with three regular season matches still to go. Her 40 service aces this season is also Lady Vol record, as she bettered teammate Kelsey Mahoney, who set the previous record in 2009 with 28 aces.

After grabbing Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Week honors on Oct. 31, freshman Tiffany Baker picked up a national accolade a day later, as CVU.com (College Volleyball Update) named her it’s National Player of the Week. Baker lead the Lady Vols to a pair of victories against Florida and South Carolina, tallying doubledoubles in each match. She averaged 4.00 kills per set, hit at a clip of .429, dug up 3.29 balls per set and had a total of six total blocks.

DOMINATING ‘D’ The Tennessee defense has been terrific as of late, highlighted by the match at home versus Florida and the road contest versus Mississippi State. Against the Gators, the Big Orange defense limited to UF to a mere .160 hitting percentage, as it marked the first time on the season UF was outhit (.175-.160). At the time, Florida was leading the conference and the nation with a clip of .314. At State on Oct. 16, the team held the Bulldogs to a .025 team hitting percentage. In the match, the highest MSU hit in any set was at .056, which came in the second frame. MSU’s hitting percentage of .025 is the 12th lowest average the Big Orange has held a team to since 2001.

MULLINS’ FIRST HONOR After setting a career-high in digs and being a consistent presence in the Lady Vol back row, the Southeastern Conference announced that Tennessee sophomore libero Ellen Mullins has been named the league’s Defensive Player of the Week on Oct. 24. It was the first time the Nashville native has been recognized by the SEC, as she averaged a team-best 5.75 digs per set this weekend on the road against Kentucky and Mississippi State. Against UK, the Nashville, native set a career-high in digs with 31, which ranks second all time in UT history during the 25-point rally scoring era, and is the most digs by any SEC player in a conference match this season.

TAMING THE TIGERS AND GATORS By topping LSU on Sept. 30 and downing Florida Sept. 25, it is the first time in school history that Tennessee has beaten both the Gators and Tigers on the road in the same season. The Lady Vols had not won in Baton Rouge since 2000, while the last UT victory in Gainesville came in 2004.

STARTING STRONG The Lady Vols finished off the first half of their SEC double round-robin schedule in first place with a 9-1 mark, which is their best record at the half way point since the conference went to the format in 2006. The next best start came in 2009, as that team went 8-2 in its first 10 against conference opponents. The team went 7-3 last season and in 2006.

RECORD WATCH Through 27 matches this season, three Tennnessee records during the 25-point rally scoring era have been broken, which dates back to 2008. Freshman Mary Pollmiller shattered the total assists record, as the Littleton, Colo., native currently has 1,242 assists on the year. Current Lady Vol Kelsey Mahoney previously held the record, as she tallied 842 helpers in 2009. In digs, sophomore Ellen Mullins has dug up 397 balls this season, which ranks fouth. Junior DeeDee Harrison is the team leader in blocks, as she has 109 putbacks in 2011, which ranks fifth.

TO NOTE... BREAKING DOWN THE SEC RACE

SENIOR DAY FOR MAHONEY

ARKANSAS/LSU TIDBITS

With three matches remaining, there are only three teams left in the SEC that are still in the hunt for a conference championship. Those three squads are Tennessee (16-1), Kentucky (15-2), and Florida (14-3), while everyone else is mathematically eliminated. Tennessee can clinch a share of the title as soon as Friday night (if Kentucky loses to LSU and UT defeats Arkansas). If the Lady Vols win both matches this weekend, UT clinches at least a share of the title . Kentucky needs to win out to earn a share of the title. To solely claim the championship, they would need UT to lose another match in addition to losing to them. To shre, Florida needs Kentucky to lose one of its remaining three and Tennessee to lose two. To win the title outright UF would need UT to lose its final three and for the Wildcats to lose their next two. If any or all of the teams remaining end up with the same record, they will be named co-champions since there are no tie-breakers.

First putting on the Orange and White jersey for the first time in 2008, senior Kelsey Mahoney will be playing in her final three home matches of her UT career over the next week and will be honored prior to the LSU match on Sunday. Mahoney came to Tennessee along with Kayla Jeter and DeeDee Harrison, but the duo each redshirted. Harrision sat out her freshman year, while Jeter had to miss this season due to an injury right before the start of the season. A native of Fort Worth, Texas, Mahoney has played in ever match since Kentucky on Oct. 12. She ranks first in asssists per set during the 25-point rally scoring era, while also ranking second in total serving aces in a season.

- Tennessee holds a slim 15-14 over Arkansas in the all-time series. The Lady Vols have had an abundance of success against the Razorbacks lately, as they are 8-2 in their last 10 meetings, while also owning and eight-match winning streak. - Arkansas didn’t start its volleyball program until 1994, but in those 17 years, they have been on top of the SEC West 11 times. - Both coaches UT faces this weekend are former coaches at Kentucky. LSU’s Fran Flory was the Wildcats head coach for 5 years in the 1990s. Arkansas’ Robert Pulliza was an associate head coach in Lexington for 3 years in the 2000s. - The Lady Vols are 18-33 all time vs LSU and 3-7 in their last 10 meetings. At home however, UT leads 6-4 in their last 10 meetings. - LSU has topped the SEC West six years in a row

HOW TOUGH IT IS TO WIN THE SEC With three matches to go this season and Tennessee controlling its own destiny in the SEC, the Lady Vols have a chance to do something that has rarely been done. Since 1989, LSU and Tennessee are the only two SEC teams besides 19-time champion Florida to have won the conference.

FLORIDA DOESN’T LOSE AT HOME Florida’s loss to Tennessee was just its 21st defeat at home since Head Coach Mary Wise took over the team in 1991, and just the 52nd loss at home in program history. By being unofficially ranked No. 26 on Sept. 25, UT is just the second unranked team to defeat Florida in Gainesville since 1991, and the first in 17 years. Now with three victories in Gainesville, no other team has more wins over the Gators at home under Coach Wise than the Lady Vols. Below is a list to show just how rare it is for the Gators to suffer a defeat in Gainesville. 2011: #19 Iowa State, NR Tennessee 2010: #1 Penn State 2009: #15 Kentucky, #19 LSU, #1 Penn State 2007: #3 Texas 2006: #9 Minnesota 2004: #18 Texas, #15 Tennessee, #12 Tennessee 2001: #6 Arizona 2000: #13 Colorado State, #2 Penn State, #8 Pepperdine 1999: #3 Nebraska 1997: #3 Long Beach State 1995: #6 Texas 1994: #1 Stanford^, NR Notre Dame, #18 Houston ^ Rob Patrick was a part of the ‘94 Stanford staff

24 NO MORE! The number 24 may be just a number to some, but for the Tennesseee Lady Vol volleyball team, it is a significant number in both matches versus Florida this season. Most recently, in a 3-1 win over UF at home, the Big Orange snapped Florida’s streak of winning 24 consecutive sets. The Gators had not dropped a set prior to UT traveling to Gainesville earlier this season and beating UF in five. By downing the No. 6 Gators on Sept. 25, Tennessee broke Florida’s streak of 24 straight SEC wins, which dated back to their last conference loss in 2009 — which was also against Tennessee. It’s been seven years since the Lady Vols defeated Florida on its home court, as the 2004 squad topped Florida in the regular season finale, then returned a week later to win again in Gainesville to capture the SEC Tournament crown.

A TOUGH OUT The Lady Vols volleyball squad has broken out the brooms 11 times this season, as the team is a perfect 11-0 in three set matches this year. This is just the second season that Tennessee has not been swept in a match, as the only other occurance came in 2004, as that squad won 32 matches and captured an SEC Championship.

PLAYING THE BIG POINTS The Lady Vols have gone to five sets in eight matches this year and are 6-2 in the final set. By going to five sets on eight occurences this season, UT has played the second most five setters of any team in school history. That mark also ties the most five set matches in a season under Rob Patrick. Tennessee six wins is the school record for most five set victories in a season.

GETTING IT DONE IN THE CLASSROOM The Lady Vols volleyball squad was one of just four teams at Tennessee to earn a perfect 100% on the latest graduation success rate report that was released on Oct. 25.

THE LADY VOLS’ HOME

INDIVIDUAL CROWDS

THOMPSON-BOLING ARENA

TOP 25 VOLLEYBALL CROWDS The Lady Vols had six of their top 25 highest crowds during the 2011 season, including a seasonhigh 2,012 against Florida on Oct. 28. Twenty-two of Tennessee’s top 25 highest crowds have come in the four years since Thompson-Boling Arena became the team’s primary venue.

GOOD TO BE HOME

SEASON ATTENDANCE FIGURES

After spending 10 seasons in Stokely Athletics Center, the Lady Vol volleyball team is in its fourth year playing in Thompson-Boling Arena on the banks of the Tennessee River. Since beginning to play in the facility full-time in 2008, the Lady Vols are 46-7 in home matches, including a perfect 10-0 this season.  Record at Thompson-Boling Since 2008

With an average home attendance of 983 in 2010, the Lady Vols demolished the previous school record of 772 set the year before. UT also finished with a program record for total home attendance with 13,761 fans. Through 10 matches this year, Tennessee is on pace to shatter its 2010 overall total and average. Three of the four top crowds in UT history have been in this season.

NEW COURT To the casual observer, the Lady Vols’ court looks very much the same as always with the checkerboard orange and white beyond each baseline, but the playing surface is brand new. The court was assembled for the first time in Thompson-Boling Arena last week and is slightly elevated off the ground, which makes for more spring on the court. The Lady Vols’ new practice court is also designed this way.
