FEATURED LADY VOL OF THE GAME THE 2010-11 TENNESSEE LADY VOLS 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 muchimproved 32-3 record with nary a senior last season. 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. 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.
