Total scoring defense doesn't really tell the whole tale when it comes to a team's overall defensive performance. The Lady Vols play such a transition heavy game and score so quickly that both sides are going to have more shot attempts and thus have a higher overall score. The LSU game is a good example of the reverse being true. Both teams shot pretty well. Tennessee almost shot 50% for the game and LSU was above 45% but the final score was a rather low 64-62 because LSU's offense's is slower than Tennessee's and slows the game down. A better stat would be average points per possession in which Tennessee is 4th in the conference allowing opponents an average of .84 points per possession. Tennessee also leads the conference in their average points scored per possession with 1.07.
