Which high school football team is most likely to win a state championship?
Help us pick the top stories of 2013 >>
If I'm correct, the top tier teams that we've been unable to beat have one trait in common--they've never had to double-team any Lady Vol, nor switch to a zone because of an unfavorable matchup.
But as a program, we are getting there. Harrison (God bless her), Graves and Jones are the new standard, with more coming.
And then we'll make another championship run when we land that one difference maker that forces other Ds to adjust to her game.
Pat's formula hasn't really changed... there's just more top-level talent out there. Time was you could win a championship with three athletes, a point guard and a bomber. Now your first 6 or 7 all have to be superior athletes--including the point--and at least two have to be 3-point shooters.
